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 Cockermouth, Cumbria.


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 breathtaking beauty of the Lake District on my doorstep. It’s that love of the 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 750 ceremonies and have been rewarded with a host of awards and credits from the photography industry. In 2013, I was the only Cumbrian photographer to be shortlisted for the national Wedding Industry Awards and achieved my MPA Diploma, and I’m also a registered member of the Guild of Photographers. They’re proud moments but I’m not complacent - I am always looking for ways to become even more creative, giving couples the pictures they will cherish for a lifetime.


I’ve trained with some world-class photographers, including the highly-acclaimed Chris Chambers, the internationally-renowned Edmond Terakopian, Jeff Ascough- World Canon Ambassador who was voted one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world and lately I've been working with Sony's Imagining Ambassadors including multi award winning photographer, Terry Donnelly.


Photographing weddings will always be my first love, but I also work for the broadcast media and some corporate clients, including the BBC, ITV, Bentley, National Trust, Pirelli, Azione Sports Clothing, The Times, The Irish Independent and Cumbria Tourism. It can be a lot of fun, particularly when I’m invited to shoot 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 David Cameron!


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 2018 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!
