Welcome to the longest established photography studio in Chester.

No matter how you found us thank you for dropping by and having a look around.

We cater for most types of photography shoots and galleries can be found by clicking on their specific pages on the menu bar.

Our studio is situated within the walls of our wonderful city two minutes walk from the main shops and a minutes walk from the river, allowing us to be outdoor based as well as studio based for shoots.

We love it when our shoots go easily as anyone would but equally our more challenging shoots are just as enjoyable as there is nothing quite as satisfying as seeing a toddler who is clinging to their parent for dear life, being dragged out of the studio an hour later because they want to stay with Dave and Suzie!

Even when we are shut we are open. So if it is out of hours or the country is in lock down, try us by email at davewilliamsphotography@hotmail.com or even better via our Facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/davewilliamsphotography/

Thanks for reading and we hope to see you at the studio soon.

Suzie & Dave

What can you expect from a shoot?

We have various types of shoots all covered in their own section but this is generally how a shoot with us will work.

We allow an hour for most shoots and you will be greeted on arrival by one of our team who will sit you down and take some general details from you. During this time it will give your children time to get to know us and their new surroundings better.

If you have young children in your group, it is most likely two of our team will be assigned to your shoot. One to take the actual pictures and the other to entertain the children . Dave and Suzy have so many techniques to get even the most stubborn children laughing and smiling. Failing that an army of glove puppets / bubbles etc if they need.

After the shoot we will arrange for you to view the pictures. This is normally a week or two afterwards . Here you will be shown the edited images including various cropped versions along with black and white copies. Our viewing software helps you choose more easily by helping you to compare and narrow down similar images.

Remember outdoor shoots are one of our specialities.


Outdoor fun

There is no time of year when outdoor shoots are off the menu.

We will just embrace whatever time of year it is.

Being only 200 yards from the riverside gives us easy access to some of the best backdrops Chester has to offer.

Newborns awake or asleep?

One part of our business where we differ greatly from many other photographers is are attitude to newborn photography.

Having had a total of 7 children between the 3 of us, we are very aware of how we felt when we were having our babies photographs taken. We hoped they wouldn’t let us down!!

Although most of them did behave we still needed nappy changes and there were a couple of clean up operations after the nappy less shots!!!

We completely expect this and that the babies will need to be fed and settled as well so don’t worry, have a chill and we will make you a hot drink and give you a break. Once the baby is settled we will start the shoot.

We absolutely don’t insist on the baby being asleep for newborn shoots, just settled. If you would prefer them asleep then of course we will work towards that.

Into our 20th Year ….

The years have just flown by since Dave and Suzy opened Bubbles Photography in Lower Bridge Street in August 2000.

After a quick name change which was more suited to the wedding side of the business, the studio has gone on to be one of the best known independent shops in Chester.

Dave and Suzy are very proud that they have managed to grow the business massively over the last 2 or 3 years without putting prices up and concentrating on what our customers needs are.

Lucy has been a big part of this growth with her hard work, ideas and ability to work with two hyperactive bosses pulling us all together as a very focused and determined trio.

Here’s to the next 20years……….
