- Chris Hughes Photography


Welcome to Chris Hughes Photography.

I am a Bishop Auckland Photographer based in the heart of County Durham I am based in an ideal location to photograph the North East of England.  The North East has some beautiful locations ranging from the rugged moors of the Pennines down to the long stretches of the coast which cover 3 counties; Yorkshire, County Durham and Northumberland.  The North East is home to many beautiful stately homes, castles and country houses to get married with stunning scenery as the backdrop to your perfect day.  I can be your photographer for the day to capture photos so the memories never die.

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.

We are over the moon with the special memories he captured, the pictures are amazing and he was very friendly and put us both at ease straight away.  We would most certainly recommend Chris Hughes Photography and would definitely hire him again no questions asked.Leanne ClarkCustomer,
