Katie & Nick
Working with Chiko was fantastic, from the first time we met him, he really put my mind at ease and lead the whole process so smoothly with his guidance, confidence and expertise. On the day itself, Chiko was great, he is so warm and friendly and really makes the bride and groom feel so special. He was there throughout the whole day and evening and captured every moment we wanted capturing without being too obvious or in anyone’s way. He also was great in organising everyone to where they needed to be and is so inventive, one example of this was that we had planned to walk out of the shul to all the guests throwing confetti at us, but at the last minute that plan had to be changed due to terrible weather, Chiko quickly and smoothly told us to wait for a few minutes and he got all the guests gathered around the hallway and staircase of the shul and they threw the confetti on us as we walked through, it was such a great idea and it produced one of my favourite photos of the day. Every step of the way, Chiko was there, even when one of the straps on my dress broke, Chiko was there stitching it back on. After we returned from honeymoon Chiko gave us the most wonderful wedding gift of doing a second photo shoot with us outside in the woods as the weather on our wedding day was too horrible to have any photos outside. We had such a fun time with him and it was an afternoon I know Nick and I will never forget. The photos themselves are so beautiful! They are everything we could have ever hoped for and more, we have had so many comments on them as they really capture the whole feeling of our wedding, they are so special and we look at them non-stop. I couldn’t recommend Chiko enough, he is the most fantastic photographer and is so creative, but he is also so calm and relaxing which is great when the bride is the opposite!
