Chris and Claire are an absolutely amazing team and we couldn’t have imagined better photographers! From the very first moment we saw their stall at the Manchester Wedding fayre, we knew that these guys would be the right choice for us. Once we had our couples engagement shoot and we saw the finished images we knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that we couldn’t have picked a better team. We can honestly say that it’s been an absolute pleasure having you photograph our special day, and we are absolutely stunned with the final images from our wedding day, as yet again these are impeccable! The sheer amount of positive feedback and comments that we have received from friends and family, not only on the day itself but also afterwards, serve to demonstrate your high quality work ethic and professionalism. From the bottom of our hearts we can only thank you for helping to bring our wonderful day to life, for helping to facilitate it all, as well as providing additional help and support throughout if we required it. You guys are brilliant and we will recommend you to everyoneMr and Mrs Just

Chris and Claire, what can I say other than thank you both so much for photographing the wedding but also for making our day complete. From the first day mike and I met you both, you made us feel so relaxed and completely at ease about having our photos taken. Starting with the engagement photos in the summer. It meant that we were not away for any long periods having our photos taking and that we could talk and see our friends and family. The out come of all the photos are outstanding we have complement after complement on how amazing the pictures are. You have truly made the best memories a married couple could ever wish for and would recommend you to the world. Thank you again so much. Nicola and Mike Ball. Xx

There is infinity and one things we could say about Chris and Claire. They have been our photographers for our wedding and our daughters photo shoot and every time the photos are just incredible. They both make you feel so relaxed and with their “peculiar” photograph poses that will set you into fits of giggles! Our wedding photos tell the story in depth and detail and I genuinely don’t think anyone could have done it better.
If anyone is thinking of booking a photographer for any reason please don’t think twice with Chris & Claire, they are just amazing! Looking forward to our daughters next photo shoot! Xxxx
Chris and Claire photographed our wedding in November. From the first time I spoke to Claire until yesterday when we viewed our photos they have been brilliant. We’ve felt like we were in good hands. Our engagement shoot was a wonderful experience, it was lovely to get to know Chris and Claire ahead of the big day and to see how the process of picking our wedding photos would be. When our wedding day came around we were 100% confident that Chris was going to take some fantastic photos. And boy did he! I actually got a bit teary eyed reliving our day when we saw our photos yesterday. They are incredible! You both helped make our day fun and relaxed.
Again, thank you both so much. And thanks Claire for helping me get in to my dress! We love each and every one of our photos. We are SO pleased with our decision to book you and will be recommending you to anyone else we know who’s getting married. x
We had Chris and Claire for our wedding in November and they were amazing!! I trusted them with everything, even having extra shots on the day they took everything I wanted and more. I can’t thank them both enough for the amazing photos we have received they completely capture our day! I would also recommend the engagement shoot they offer, it meant on the day we new exactly what Chris’s directions were and how to stand which made everything so smooth, it was also hilarious! Thank u both so much again!!! Xx
I concur totally, as the mother of the groom I am overwhelmed by the quality of the photographs and the way in which the photographers conducted themselves, they missed nothing but were never intrusive. Thank youMr & Mrs Roberts

Chris and Claire shot our wedding in September and last weekend we picked up our wedding albums. The pictures were beautiful and Chris and Claire managed to put both my husband and I at complete ease from the initial meet to engagement shoot and finally and most importantly our big day. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking into a photographer xMr and Mrs Dunthorne

We just wanted to say a BIG thank you for all that you did for us with our photos and album. We’re in love with the album and the photos are just top quality.

Hi Chris and Claire.
We have just opened the albums for the first time and WOW. We knew the photos were good but in print and presented so nicely they look even better. The quality of the print is fantastic and we cant thank you both enough for being so good at your job and providing us with the best photos either of us have ever seen. We cant wait to show the pics off to all our friends.
Thanks also for the special extra, I hope you wont mind if we don’t hand them out as they are too nice and we want to keep them!
Really looking forward to the cherish shoot,
Wish we could do it all again.

Dear Chris & Claire
Another heartfelt thank you.
The photographs are outstanding, we could not have wished for better. You were correct they did bring tears to our eyes.
You were extremely professional and we did not feel like we were taken away from our guests or the entertainment and yet we have the result of many beautiful photos that, as you know, were very hard to choose from.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. You captured the day perfectly and we have photos from the beginning of the day until the end, to cherish and look back through for years to come.
We would not hesitate to recommend you to family, friends and colleagues and we both hope to work with you again in the future. It was an absolute pleasure.
With very best wishes

Peace of Mind with our Image Security System
As you browse through our site and our albums it is easy to imagine yourself on your special day looking and feeling amazing. Enjoying your most special day with those you love the most and confident that your photographer is capturing every special moment for ever.
After the romance, the excitement and the joy of planning your day for a moment we need to turn our attention to something very serious. We are aware of more cases recently where photographers have lost all the photographs from a wedding. Either from failed equipment or bad practices the loss of the record of your day would be terrible.
More newspapers are reporting legal proceedings from devastated couples as they battle with so-called professional photographers. It breaks my heart but the sad fact is that even if you get your money back you will never re-capture those special moments.
With Chris Hanley Photography you can be sure that we have the most robust and safe backup system available. We know things can and do go wrong but our multi-level backup starts with the cameras. Backup level 1 involves multiple cameras and two cards in each recording the same picture twice. Backup level 2 is a dual hard drive system that ensures the images are in two places, one of which is off-site. And finally, Backup level 3, our final edited images for your album are backed up to separate systems meaning we are confident we will never lose your precious photos.
So when your are looking to book your wedding photographer don’t forget to ask what back up system do you have and if it isn’t as secure as ours walk away-FAST.
