About Chris

Professional wedding photographer in Edinburgh

Fun, informal, professional wedding photography

It’s pretty ironic that I’m a wedding photographer as I seriously hate having my own photograph taken. Literally out of the hundreds of thousands I have catalogued you’ll probably only find about 10 of me.

So that’s me on the right, 12 years younger, 20 tonnes lighter, a lot less grey, beard considerably shorter, but that’s me. My wife says I look like a white Totoro.

How did I get into photography? Years and years ago I worked a dead end office job and at the time my passion was cycling. I used to race all over the place and in my last year of cycling (pedal cycling btw) I did 14000 miles while working full time, but then I had a couple bad accidents and in the last one I smashed some teeth out and had to go through lots of surgery.

Now I can tell you having bone grafts in your mouth and bits of metal inserted to reconstruct your mouth sucks, like really sucks. So I quit and needed another hobby. I sold my bikes, bought a cheapo digital SLR and started taking photos and I caught the bug. I went on to study an evening course, a HND and part of a degree (I dropped out of uni as I learnt nothing in the one year I was there and wanted to get experience and work).

As well as weddings I photograph cars and properties over on my other website; Chris Radley Photography and I also do some work as a web developer when I have time (which I never seem to do).

Meet Chris (Quick facts!)

Must lose weight! I lost 25kg in 2018. Must lose more!

My favourite place is Thailand. Love the weather, love the people, the scenery is awesome and the food amazing.

My favourite food is Fen Jen Ro (Chinese steamed pork belly). I could never become a vegan as I love bacon too much.

I still love photographing weddings, especially when everyone is up for a bit of fun.

Favourite band is Machine Header. I’m a super nice guy (honest!) but I love my heavy metal.
