About Me


Hi, I’m Chris Coupland, and I’m the owner and photographer behind Memories Photography Selby:  an award-winning, professional wedding and studio photography business.


I have over 21 years experience as a professional photographer.


I provide affordable, high-quality photography for a wide range of events, including weddings, special occasions, studio portraits and business photography. 


Not everyone feels comfortable in front of the camera. However, my friendly and personable approach puts my clients at ease. I pride myself on making even the most camera-shy people feel relaxed in front of the lens, resulting in the highest-quality final images.


What’s my background?


I’ve been a professional photographer, based in Selby but covering the Yorkshire area, for over 21 years.  


My passion for photography began at school in Hull, though my career path lead me towards the teaching profession. I taught maths, ICT and, of course, photography in the Selby, Goole, Hull, York and Doncaster areas.


However, in early 2015, after 15 years spent working as a professional photographer part time, I threw open the doors to my 40m2 Selby Studio, where I undertake family portraits and business services, to begin working as a photographer full time.


I still teach photography and run courses regularly in my own Selby studio, but dedicating most of my time to professional photography has allowed me to widen the range of services I can offer to my clients.


What type of photography do I do?


Over the years, Memories Photography Selby has provided a wide range of photography.

I’ve photographed: 

  • Weddings and Civil Ceremonies 
  • Christenings and Naming Days
  • Birthdays and Anniversaries
  • Graduations
  • Sporting Events (including local junior and senior football team events)
  • Pets and Animals
  • Theatre Groups
  • Actor headshots
  • Proms (at the event and also studio shoots of the getting ready)
  • Charitable Events
  • Photo Booths
  • Boudoir Sessions
  • Product Photography for various local companies
  • Photo restoration work from old prints
  • Images for Local Business, School Websites and Marketing Materials​
  • Property Pictures to enhance Purple Bricks selling site images
  • Prom Nights and Charitable Events
  • Landscapes and Local Scenery
  • Studio Shoots (in my own Selby Studio, at my clients’ homes or businesses, or on location outdoors).
  • In May 2017 we hired out the studio to CASTLE PRODUCTIONS to film the final scenes for the film DESTINY - Series 1


I’ve also worked alongside TV crews for weddings shows on Baby Faced Brides and Big Fat Gypsy Weddings.



What if I want to learn to take better pictures?


As a qualified tutor and professional photographer I am delighted to pass on my knowledge to others. I run regular training courses in my Selby studio.


See the PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES page for details.


In October 2018 I published my own book entitled "Improving Your Own Photography" sharing my experiences to help you with your own photography.

For further details see the MY BOOK page which has a link directly to the Amazon page.



Where do I work?


I carry out most of my wedding and special occasion photography within twenty miles of my Selby studio.  


However, I’ll happily cover areas within a one-hour radius of Selby. This includes Hull, Scarborough, York, Harrogate, Knaresborough, Leeds, Tadcaster, Sherburn-in-Elmet, Wakefield, Barnsley, Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster, Goole, and everywhere in between.  


For weddings outside of this area I am happy to travel but may require a small additional fee to cover my fuel and time, please contact me for a fixed price.


Of course I also work in my own Selby based studio which was opened in spring 2015.


What will you get when you choose me as your photographer?


You’ll receive all of your images fully processed, and presented to you on a copyright-free high quality USB in a presentation box for weddings, or on a CD / DVD for other services.  


You’ll also receive your own sharable online image gallery. You will be able to view the images from your phone, as well as order the prints directly online from one of the countries leading photo laboratories.


What do I charge?


At Memories Photography Selby, I offer competitive prices - but I never compromise on quality.  I offer a fantastic service and an excellent finished product which results in happy customers. Many return to hire me as their photographer again and again, and I’m delighted to receive great referrals. See what some of my clients have said on our TESTIMONIALS page or look at our Facebook page via the link to see what more clients have said.


In fact, Memories Photography Selby has grown primarily from word of mouth. I’m incredibly grateful to my wonderful customers who personally recommend me to their family and friends, allowing my business to go from strength to strength.
