Howdy!

Wouldn’t it be great to find a photographer who you get on so well with that they feel more like guests than photographers?

The key is simply picking someone who you get on well with, so this page is all about getting to know us a little more..

.

We’re fun, easy going, down to earth and we love what we do.

We’ve worked hard and built a great reputation with not only our clients but their guests and our fellow wedding suppliers and venues.

Oh.. and we’ve been married ourselves so we know exactly how you feel.

As you’ll see though, we’re not all business. There’s so much more to us both than our work, so take a look below and find out what we love to do while we’re not working.

Chris Greenwood

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 really 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

I also 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.

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 Hogarth

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.

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 as inspiration on your wedding day.

Behind the lens

Alongside the Weddings, Shazia likes to spend her time doing fashion and portrait photography at our studio.

Not your typical “girly” girl. Her favourite bands are Rammstein and Nine Inch Nails and is a bit of a goth girl at heart.

She loves to travel and experience different cultures and food, we often base our travel around what kind of food we want to try!

Shazia loves nothing better than reading a good book while drinking a cup of coffee, surrounded by our cats.

All in all, a cool chick with one of the most creative eyes in the business.
