Don’t take it from us, read what our clients have to say.
“We have just collected our photos/video from our wedding at Doxford Barns and we are absolutely blown away with them! From the minute we met Chris/Shazia from Chocolate Chip we knew that they were the photographers for us and they definitely did not disappoint!
Shazia was more than a photographer on the morning of the wedding, calming me down and helping me with the final details like my jewellery yet still managing to capture the most amazing shots of us all getting ready!
Throughout the day, both Chris/Shazia were so chilled yet somehow managed to keep all of our guests in check, getting all the photos that we wanted but not being intrusive in any way, it was almost as if they were guests at our wedding, just mingling with everybody whilst snapping away and the photos just speak for themselves!
Chris listened to us when we said we didn’t want any ‘cheesy’ or ‘posed’ photos and managed to do something a little bit different for us with this in mind and we honestly couldn’t be happier with the results – there are so many gorgeous, natural shots and we can now relive the day with all of the details!
Chris also put up with us being indecisive about whether or not to go for a video too during the run up to the wedding – with only a couple of weeks to go we decided we did want the video and Chocolate Chip were able to make this happen for us.
The video captures the whole day just perfectly, we have laughed, cried and smiled from ear to ear whilst watching it and we are so grateful that you swayed us and we now have this to treasure forever.
We can’t thank you enough Chocolate Chip – you guys are the best! X”
“It’s so hard to fit into one review just how great these guys are! Our photos are beautiful, every second of our day has been captured and we love how each photos reflects how fun and relaxed our day was.
On the day Chris and Shazia blended into our day seamlessly, they captured all our key shots with no fuss and so quickly putting everyone in shot at ease. I have never seen photos where myself and my husband look so relaxed and natural, for the first time ever we cant pick which is our favourite of us!
We couldn’t of asked for any more from Chris and Shaz on the day and also on the run up to the wedding, they responded to our messages almost instantly, calmed our nerves and talked frankly and honestly on all things wedding, not just photography.
From the day we met them we trusted these guys completely and are so grateful to have had them there throughout our planning process, Thanks again Chocolate Chip, see you soon for our wedding album! xx”
“Chocolate Chip are amazing…simple! Myself and husband collected our wedding photographs and I am in love with them we got to relive our day all over again looking at them.
We must thank Chris, Shazia and Martin they were brilliant throughout the day and got some amazing photographs.
Such a lovely group of people who make you feel special and calm on the big day. All of our family could not compliment them enough saying how lovely they were and that they could tell the wedding photographs would be amazing, would definitely recommend to others and I can’t wait to get the wedding video! Thanks again guys!”
“After weeks of researching what felt like every photographer in the north east we finally booked an appointment with Chocolate Chip after being given a recommendation from our florist. They were everything I was looking for!
Approachable, creative and actually interested in what we liked and what our vision was for the wedding.
On the day Chris was fantastic, very professional and disappeared into the back ground – to the point that after the wedding I was disappointed that I thought we wouldn’t have many photos as I hadn’t really seen him! I was wrong.
The photos are beautiful! Not a cliche in sight! A real mix of natural shots and amazing set up images that reflect the atmosphere of the day perfectly.
Thank you so much for capturing our perfect day and for the amazing photos, you made me look beautiful!!”
“Chris and Shazia are two lovely and amazing people! They were very helpful and professional right from the start of me contacting them to discuss our wedding.They aren’t like your average photographers, they’re unique and exactly what we were looking for in our photographers.
We got on very well with them from the start. They got on well with all guests and staff as though they have known them for ages. They make you feel very at ease and comfortable through the whole process not just on the day.
They are more than just photographers, Shazia helped me get dressed, put my veil in, attached my something borrowed to my bouquet, put my bracelet on for me, carried my lipstick around, help alter my bridesmaids dresses through the day. She did not have to do any of this, it is not part of her job but she wanted to help anyway and I couldn’t thank her enough for getting us all sorted on the day.
They make you laugh and they join in with the day as though they are the guests which is great. It helps the guests relax too. I can’t thank them enough for being part of our special day, it was amazing and thanks to them they made it even better.
We now have our photographs back and they are out of this world! We are over the moon with the finished products. The photos they captured throughout the day are magical and exactly what we wanted if not better. We now can’t wait for them to create our album for us.
Thanks to these guys we can re live our wedding day over and over again and that is something that’s truly amazing!! They put so much hard work in to be the best and they are.
I definitely would recommend them to all friends or family and we certainly would go back again in the future for a photo shoot.”
“Choosing a photographer /videographer for a wedding isn’t just buying into a service, it’s commitment from both sides knowing and accepting that these guys will be spending what may be the biggest and most important day with you and they will be a part of your memories for the rest or your life.
From day 1 of booking they have always kept in contact, we have met up and discussed ideas.
They turned up on the day so relaxed which really made us feel at ease. Such a fantastic couple, their collaboration of ideas are outstanding! So quick to get the perfect shot.
They stayed with us all day, family and friends commented saying they seemed like guests, they blended in so well and no one felt uncomfortable.
They have gone above and beyond, even helping me with blister plasters for my feet late a night.
Choosing Chocolate Chip was one of the easiest decisions we had the pleasure to make and boy oh boy are we glad that we did! We would 100% pay double the money just to have them again. Everything was perfect!!
We have certainly found ourselves some new friends.
Massive thank you to them!”
“Chris and Shazia were absolutely incredible on our day.From the first meeting with them we were put at ease, no question seemed too silly or too bizarre to ask.
They helped us the entire day, any questions that we had, any pictures that we wanted taken, any group shots that we wanted were taken care of. They mixed in with the guests and made sure to get all of the shots that we were likely to miss due to the chaos of a wedding day.
They went above and beyond the entire day and they made the whole day perfect and captured it exactly how we wanted to remember our amazing day.
They made us feel like their friends rather than just another client, they stayed at the wedding until it got dark which in mid-summer was about 10:30/11pm at night to get some sparkler shots and they checked before they left that we had all the shots that we wanted from the day.
We would recommend Chris and Shazia to absolutely anyone that asks (and doesn’t ask) as they aren’t just getting a photographer at their wedding, they are gaining some friends that want to capture you at your best throughout the day.
We consider ourselves lucky that we got the privilege of having them at our wedding and as we have just received our wedding pictures back we can wholeheartedly recommend that anyone that is looking for natural, bold pictures choose Chocolate Chip Photography and they will NOT regret it!”
“Chocolate chip photography are no ordinary photographers. They made our wedding day and planning experience amazing- always making us feel at ease and as if we were in the company of our friends that we’ve known for years!
Keeping us calm under pressure and, for want of a better phrase, going above and beyond throughout. From helping me get into my dress, to working out how to use the grill so I could have some toast to calm the pre wedding nerves.
The experience we had was faultless. Not to mention, their photos are AMAZING.
Being able to contact both Shazia and Chris at almost any time. The way they use Pinterest to gauge what kind of photos you like.
Being very friendly and personable at all meetings, and on the day, being there at all times to answer any questions or to seize any moment. Couldn’t recommend them enough!”
