Capturing your wedding memories to treasure forever…






Chris Hughes Photography can accommodate family portraits, bump to baby photo shoots, pet portraits and model photo shoots. Portraits and photo shoots can be done in the studio or in the comfort of your own home.  If you would like to try something different and get out in the fresh air of County Durham, why not have an outdoor photo shoot in a location of your choice.  A nice woodland walk with the kids and the dog, or how about on the beach, it gives a very different dynamic feel to your portraits.

You can have a look at examples of my photography on my portfolio page.

Any questions?  See my Frequently Asked Questions page.
