Essex Based Wedding Photographer

Kristian Lissimore

Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to flick through my work. My name is Kris and I am based in Essex, but I work throughout the UK as well as worldwide. My photography style is very much relaxed and natural storytelling.

If you like what you see, just drop me a message and we’ll arrange a meet for a coffee (or a pint) to chat all about your big day! Looking forward to hearing from you!

A little bit about me

I feel that getting on with your photographer is something that is always overlooked. On your big day, I am there to capture the full story of your wedding in its true nature, from start to finish. To be able to do that I need to immerse myself within your day as a whole. Finding that happy medium between taking a step back and letting the day flow and knowing when to get right in the mix – this begins with a connection between the couple and the photographer. No-one wants to ever remember feeling awkward on their big day and I believe my flexible approach fits around everyone.

My background in photography started just after I horribly failed two years at college. I picked up the camera soon after and then the year after enrolled onto a Art Diploma course at Colchester Insititue with the intention of studying photography at University the year after that. I studied at Hertfordshire University and after three years achieved my BA(HONS) Degree in Photography. I graduated in 2014 and have been working within the wedding industry ever since. I absolutey love this field of work!

Photography. Obviously top of the list! I have an ever-growing set of cameras, I will almost always have at least one me. I shot weddings using Canon 5D MK III’s and I shoot most of my travel stuff with my little Fuji XT2.

Ipswich Town FC – A few seasons back I was one of the club photographers at the football club I have supported my entire life has been an absolute dream. I love being able to play from time to time as well.

Film & TV – Star Wars MAD. LOTR, anything Tarantino, The Grand Budapest Hotel or anything with some sort of superhero involved. Big on Game of Thrones – who isn’t? Winter is HERE.

Music. Can’t beat a gig. Foals, Arctic Monkeys, Don Brocco and Bring me the Horizon. Just about anything but I’m a little indie kid at heart.

Video games. Challenge me to a game of FIFA. I dare you (I’m rubbish).

Traveling. Everyone should of have a long bucket list of travel destinations!

Running. Nothing overly serious. I can just about hack a few half marathons.

Food. Mainly the eating part. Love of a good spice kick. My one and only weakness is a Five Guys burger, oh and a Cinnabon. Sweet sweet Cinnabon.
