Kristian Lissimore Photography

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 natural storytelling.

If you like what you see and think the style suits, just drop me a message and we’ll arrange a meet for a coffee (or a pint) to chat 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 create a story of your wedding in its true nature, from start to finish. To be able to do that I need to totally immerse myself with you, your guests and within your day as a whole. Finding that happy medium between knowing when to take a step away and knowing when to get right in the mix 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.

  • Photography. Obviously top of the list! I have an ever-growing set of cameras, I will almost always have at least one me.
  • Ipswich Town FC – Being 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, Foo Fighters and Royal Blood. 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).
  • Travelling. 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.


Emily & Adam

Kris shot our wedding back in August. The photos are more than we could have ever imagined and we will be forever grateful to you for capturing our day so perfectly!

From arriving very first thing whilst us girls were getting ready to run over to the boys getting ready and then on to our 2 venues, nothing was too much trouble to ensure that everything we wanted to be captured was.

The online gallery, highlights, memory stick and the album are also so fab. We can’t stop looking through the photos even 5 months on!

Thanks so much Kris, we will be forever recommending you to our friends and family! You have a very special talent, keep doing what you do!

Shannon & Greg

Well, Kris. Me and Greg will be forever thankful for you coming to Mexico to capture our special day. We are so pleased with the pictures and memories you helped us create.

Hopefully, when you go again the sarndcastles won’t be in the way.

We look forward to seeing you soon for reception time.

If you want Kris as your photographer you won’t regret it, he makes you relaxed and takes natural pictures. Our day is captured at every point.

He will make you laugh and you will not be let down by his fantastic gift.

Thank you again, Kris

Megan & Chris

The service we have received from Kris has been brilliant. Kris captured our wedding day perfectly, every pose/group photo we wanted was captured to perfection. Every guest we had commented on how easy it was to communicate with Kris and how well he worked with people of all ages in order to get the perfect picture. Even since the wedding, Kris has done everything we have asked with our album. The PWS was fantastic, myself and my husband were very nervous as we are not very photogenic people, however, Kris broke that and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Kris, we both will continue to recommend you for a very, very long time. THANK YOU

Kerri & Dave

Kristian was great from the start. A relaxed coffee for an intro and a really chilled out experience provided on our big day.We chose Kristian for the quality of his pictures and we weren’t disappointed! Photos of our day looked amazing, with everyone we’ve shown them off to saying just how fantastic they are. We couldn’t have asked for better.

Thank you!

P.s. Sausages!
