Chris Freer - Award winning Lake District Wedding Photographer


My name is Chris Freer and I live with my wife Rachel and our two young boys in the town of Cockermouth, just on the edge of the beautiful Lake District.

Since I got my first SLR camera at the age of 13 - and persuaded my parents to buy me countless rolls of film - I have been passionate about taking pictures. I discovered I loved landscape photography, largely thanks to the breathtaking beauty of the Lake District on my doorstep. It’s that stunning landscape which inspires my signature wedding images and I can’t believe that I have been lucky enough to turn my passion into a career.

I’m now entering my 14th year in the business and, in this time, I have covered more than 800 ceremonies, gained a wealth of experience and have been rewarded with a host of awards and credits. They have come from my peers in the photography industry including many recent ones in national photography competitions.

I am very fortunate to have a close working relationship with a lot of the finest wedding venues in the Lake District and this has been gained through mutual respect and professionalism.

I’ve trained with some world-class photographers, including Chris Chambers, the internationally-renowned Edmond Terakopian, Brett Harkness, a truly brilliant and highly-acclaimed wedding photographer and Jeff Ascough, a Canon ambassador who was voted one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world. Lately, I've been working with Sony's Imagining Ambassadors including the multi-award-winning photographer, Terry Donnelly. I have achieved my MPA Diploma and I’m also a registered member of the Guild of Photographers, a highly respected professional organisation in the UK.

Photographing weddings will always be my first love, but I also work for the international media and some corporate clients, including Bentley, National Trust, Pirelli, Azione Sports Clothing and Cumbria Tourism. Those media clients have included the BBC, ITV, The Times and The Irish Independent. It can be a lot of fun, particularly when I’m shooting events like Formula 1, the Tour of Britain cycle race and the World Rally Championships – I’ve even had photo shoots with Sir Chris Hoy and UK Prime Ministers!

Personally, I love competing in sport, especially marathons, duathlons and triathlons in the UK and Europe. In 2018, I was incredibly proud to be a member of the GB Age Group Triathlon Squad representing Great Britain at the European Championships. Apart from being a wonderful way to keep fit and focused, it certainly helps with the concentration levels and stamina required for photographing weddings!
