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 16 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.
I’ve been a professional photographer, based in Selby but covering the Yorkshire area, for over 16 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 Goole, 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 when I can, but dedicating my time to professional photography has allowed me to widen the range of services I can offer to my clients.
I’m proud to say I’ve won a number of prestigious competitions and awards, and I’m affiliated to the YPU (Yorkshire Photographic Union). I’m also enhanced CRB checked and insured, and qualified to work with people with disabilities or special needs. Of course, I’m also a qualified photography tutor.
Over the years, Memories Photography Selby has provided a wide range of photography.
In October 2015, I was the proud host of the 'Selby Times' ‘Little Stars’ photography competition and I was delighted to host this special event again in 2016.
I’ve also worked alongside TV crews for weddings shows on Baby Faced Brides and Big Fat Gypsy Weddings.
As a qualified tutor and professional photographer I am delighted to pass on my knowledge to others. I run training courses at various levels from my Selby studio.
See the PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES page for details.
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.
I’ve also covered weddings in Lancashire, so just let me know where you’re based and we can have a chat.
Of course I also work in my own Selby based studio which was opened in spring 2015.
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 or DVD for other services.
You will also be able to upload to them to your computer, view them on your TV, or share with your family and friends via email or Facebook.
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.
Just because it’s your wedding, or a special occasion, it doesn’t give a photographer the right to double their rate. At Memories Photography Selby, I offer competitive prices - but I never compromise on quality.
I work from my own home studio, meaning my overheads are minimal. I pass all my savings onto my valued customers, so my photography rates stay low while the quality remains high.
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.
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.
