Our Process



Firstly we start by getting to know one another mainly me getting to know you both but also a chance for you to get to know me – answer any initial questions.



Before the big day we need to discuss who’s who and what’s important to capture for you – groups shots, couples, the family pet etc and talk about timings so that on the day I know exactly where to be and when.



The BIG day! I want you to enjoy the day as much as possible so all my prep work allows me to be a fly on the wall and capture all those special moments.



I always aim to deliver a set of preview images within 72 hours so that you can get a glimpse into what we have – the full online gallery and images are usually delivered within 2-6weeks.





Roots&Wings was started by photographer Christopher Parsons, with almost 20 years experience in the photographic industry, I have worked on all sorts of shoots from celebrity clients to big brand commercials and everything in between – bringing a camera along to family and friend’s weddings made me realise this one was of my favourite things to photograph, a different kind of challenge to the usual portrait work, weddings are unique, spontaneous, lots of fun and with everyone looking fantastic for the occasion its a people photographer’s dream…so after years of shooting weddings as a favour it was only a matter of time before it became a business in itself – I shoot a limited number of weddings per year to allow for the commercial and art projects to continue. I live on board a historic dutch barge on the waterways in the south of England with my young family and split my time between London and the Southwest.




‘Chris is one of the best photographers you could have the pleasure of working with. He has an amazing eye for detail and will work with you to get exactly what you want. Don’t hesitate to book Chris you won’t regret it!’

-Mr & Mrs Heale (Stu+Kim)

Whats included?

I like to keep it simple with one price, one package, no hidden costs or extras – FULL DAY COVERAGE (10hours) £2500


Obviously with every wedding being bespoke we can adapt this to suit your needs so please do give me a shout if you have other ideas and if you are just planning for a small intimate short wedding then we can break the price down to hours if you feel necessary… alternatively if you are having a big wedding with multiple venues and things going on then you might feel that we need a 2nd shooter so that we can cover everything all at once, this is also possible with various people I work with regularly who are also great photographers themselves, its a great way to cover as much as possible and capture all those special moments…
