Weddings are awesome! There’s not a part of the day I don’t love from getting creative with the rings to stunning portraits at sunset with just the two of you. 


Engagement photography is such a vibe. Just the two of you and a location that lends itself to romantic moments. 


Family portraits are the perfect way to celebrate who your family are at that moment in time. Life doesn’t stand still, but photographs never forget. 


Your Photographer

Don’t be fooled by the company name, Chronicle Photography is a one man show, run by me – Darren, with a little support from my daughter behind the scenes.

I’m a photographer from Hamilton, South Lanarkshire. I like to think of myself as a life photographer.

As the only photographer at Chronicle Photography, I specialise in family photography. That covers wedding photography, engagement photography and family portraits. It’s what I do best and it’s what I enjoy the most. 

At weddings, I love interacting with your guests and  being part of the day. It helps me understand your vibe more and guides me in the type of shots I’ll deliver to you on top of the conversations and meetings we’ve already had.

Family portraits are about having fun. I want to capture your family as you are, not in carefully choreographed ‘perfect’ poses.



In all my photographs, I edit them to deliver bright images with soft backgrounds that bring the attention to the subject of the photograph. I use true to life colouring for a timeless look rather than fads and trends you’ll see on Instagram. If that style suits what you’re looking for from your photos, then read on!

So I’m not just a Wedding Photographer. Or a Family Photographer. Or a Party Photographer. I’m all of those things. My aim as Chronicle Photography is to be there for all of the major events of your life. After all, a photographer is a very personal choice. They should match your style and personality, and when you find that ideal match, why not have them be the official record keeper for your families most precious memories?  

When we work together, I bring a positive mood with me. You’ll never see me with my camera without a smile on my face. It’s what makes me happy and we all know a smile is infectious – handy when your taking pictures! During portrait shoots I like to keep things relaxed and have some fun too. It’s always entertaining to take some wacky pictures along side the choreographed ones. At Weddings and Events I like to blend into the crowd and look for natural moments as they happen. Whatever the reason you hire me for, I aspire to create something that encapsulates that moment in time for you. So that you can relive with the same emotions every time you view it. 

Why not get in touch and I can find out more about you and explain how I can bring your memories to life.
