Howdy!

Wouldn’t it be great to find photographers who you get on so well with that they feel more like friends and guests at your wedding?.

We’re very good at what we do, but let’s see if we click. Here’s some more about us…

.

Chris

Hey, I’m Chris and I’m definitely the mouth piece of us both. There is a reason why I’ve been nicknamed ‘The Bearded Hero’ which you can read here.

My love is capturing people faces, expressions, joy and everything that comes with it. The fact that weddings are generally filled with lots of happy people having a good time is what makes it fun.

The real payback for me is when our brides and grooms receive their wedding photographs back, or our mums and dads received their newborn images back.

To see them so happy knowing they’ve had amazing images captured forever is why I do this.

Movies and TV

When i’m not working, I love watching movies and tv shows. Whether it’s at the cinema or on our awesome home theatre set up, films and a good tv series are my passion.

I’m a big Marvel fan, and I love many other great movies such as Star Wars, The Godfather, Lord of the Rings and Jurassic Park to name a few. The list is endless.

TV wise, it’s all about Game of Thrones and Stranger Things, although I also love a bit of 24, Entourage and my favourite TV series of all time is Friday Night Lights.

Our Cats

We love our cats. Well, any cat for that matter but definitely our own. Any animal lover will know, they’re part of the family.

I love coming home with them waiting at the door and there’s nothing better than a night in with the cats sleeping all around us.

Travel

We both love our adventures. We travelled to Sri Lanka as well as doing an amazing trip to Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand in 2017.

We both love to ride our motorbikes too and combined with our sense of adventure, we’ve done a few trips around mainland Europe and Spain. You can check out our most recent motorcycle trip here.

We’ve also invested in a roof tent for our truck, so that we can further broaden our adventures in the future. You can follow our adventures on our Youtube Channel and at Choc Chip Travels

Food

We’re both big foodies too. Pretty much everything we do in all aspects of our lives revolves around our love of food. Street food, burgers, cheese.. you name it. It has to be good food though. We have very high standards.

We love eating out though, especially living near Newcastle and Tynemouth. There are so many cool places to eat it’s fantastic.

Shazia

I’m Shazia, the quieter, stealthier side of Chocolate Chip Photography! My clients have given me the nickname Blue Ninja because they never see me on their wedding day, in a good way!

I have a keen interest in editorial and fine art portraiture and have been featured in multiple international magazines for my editorial and fashion work.  I draw on those skills on your wedding day to get you images you want to hang on the wall!

Alongside the Weddings, I also shoot fashion and portrait photography at our studio.

Behind the lens

When not photographing people, I like to spend my time growing my house plant collection!  (Chris hasn’t noticed just how many we actually have!)

I love to travel and experience different cultures and food, we often base our travel around what kind of food we want to try and build a trip around that!

This may be cliché at this point but I also LOVE my coffee!  Fun fact, when we went to Vietnam I fell in love with their coffee so much that I drank it all the time while we were there, so much that I had withdrawals for three days after we left!
