Hello and welcome to Christian Ward Photography.
We are Christian and Erica – a husband and wife photographic team- delivering high quality wedding photography in Chesterfield, Sheffield, nationally and worldwide.
We’re friendly, relaxed, quiet but fun people and our personalities extend into how we work as photographers. With this in mind, you’ll not find us taking over your wedding day. Instead, we take a lot of pride in delivering seamless cover of your entire day, capturing relaxed, natural, and beautiful photographs of the two of you, your guests, and all the details that you’ve spent a lot of time on. We know when and how to disappear into the background when taking photos, and we know just when to take control without being bossy! Sometimes we’ll stand back, watch and wait, sometimes we’ll lightly direct you, but if you like our photos then you’ll know that this approach is for you!
Many people comment on our use of light and this is something that plays a huge part in our style. Although we love natural light, we do also love bringing our unique style into photos when the sun’s gone down by using a variety of off-camera lighting techniques. This way, whether it’s sunny or cloudy, wet or dry, day or night, our approach can flex. Our work is contemporary though we don’t indulge in photography ‘fads’, ensuring that your photos look good now and in years to come.
We love photographing weddings and we feel very lucky to have found what we’re meant to do. If you’d love us to photograph your wedding, we’d love to hear from you. Contact us now to enquire about our availability and meet for a chat.
Meanwhile, please do visit the galleries, price and information pages linked to at the top of this page.
Don’t forget to call in on our Blog where you can see plenty more photos!
And finally, just so that you can form a picture of who we are, here are a few of the things we love:
Christian: Erica, my family, photographing people, weddings, Canada, my camera, Starbucks Vanilla Latte, Jamie Cullum, Cadbury’s mini eggs, John Mayer, cranberry and orange muffins (unfortunately a ‘Christmas-only’ Starbucks muffin), my guitars, good light, Bruce Parry, music, my iPhone, Lost (forgetting the fact that after the first few seasons it became all a bit too confusing), Apple Macs, when a plan comes together, love, Goodfellas, dogs, turkey cranberry and stuffing sandwiches, snowy days.
Erica: not that I’m copying Christian, but my list has a few similarities! Christian, my family, writing pretty much anything – I can’t think without a pen in my hand!, Canada, tea, pretty stationery and design, old movies, coloured opaque tights, real leather bags, books, John Mayer, Nerina Pallot and music in general, soft toys and anything fluffy, Star Trek & Buffy (but not all sci-fi), trees, birds, slippers, getting home and cuddling up on the settee, Mexican food, starry nights, Christmas lights, dancing to uncool music and since I’m probably missing lots of things this list might grow even longer!
We hope to see you soon.
