Chris was the best photographer we could have asked for. Not only were rehearsal dinner photos included in our package but Chris also put together a vision board on Pinterest for our event. He captured the theme and joy of our wedding in more ways than we could imagine. We can’t thank him enough for making our day amazing!

We were looking for a photographer to do some senior photographs for my daughter and her friend without much notice. Chris was responsive, flexible, and so easy to work with. On the day of our (outdoor) shoot, the weather was not very cooperative. Again, Chris was flexible and was able to get us in the next day. He is a natural at what he does, from the interactions with his customers to the beautiful photos. He easily and quickly built a rapport with 2 teenage girls (not an easy thing to do) so that they felt comfortable working with him and having their photos taken. He had lots of creative ideas and was extremely professional. We got some "sneak peek" photos within 48 hours of the photo shoot, and they truly did not disappoint! Gorgeous photos, clearly the work of a photographer who has an abundance of knowledge, talent, and experience. The girls love their photos, as do the parents! Thank you so much, Chris! You do absolutely gorgeous work.

Chris was a joy to work with. He was able to handle every obstacle we threw at him, he had a solution for everything. A family photo shoot with about 20 people has its challenges., but he made it look easy. I really appreciated his professionalism and workmanship. He went over and beyond our expectations. His pricing is great, as his was the best price for everything he provided. His price was even cheaper than a family friend’s, that we considered using at one point. 😀 Thanks for everything, Chris. My family and I look forward to working with you in the future.

I can only choose 3 accolades but we're definitely talking 5/5 on this one. We hired Chris to shoot our wedding on October 9. I'm not too keen on having my picture taken, as I find it incredibly awkward but my husband convinced me that we needed to do the included engagement shoot.. I AM SO GLAD WE DID. Not only were the photos beautiful and flattering, but the whole experience was fantastic. After just a few minutes, Chris had us both laughing and feeling comfortable almost forgetting the camera was there at all. Chris is the perfect combination of professional and personable; he responded to all my bridezilla e-mails and text messages almost immediately, putting any confusion or anxiety I had to rest, making the entire process (the photo side, at least) absolutely seamless. We had our SNEAK PEAK photos for both the engagement session and wedding itself within a day and a half of each event and they were all ASTOUNDING. I don't consider myself an emotional person by any means, but the way he captured certain moments throughout our big day still brings me to tears when I look at the photos I've already seen 100+ times. During our wedding reception, we were all evacuated while the Fire Department investigated a strong gas smell inside the venue. While I was busy getting angry, Chris was speaking to the firemen and convinced them to let us use the trucks as props. We were eventually allowed back into the venue but from what I hear, our evacuation photos have gone viral and I can only accredit that to the fast thinking, highly responsive, sheer talent behind the camera. My husband has already been informed that I'll be reaching out to Chris anytime I need those special life moments captured!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I like to get to know the client more, that way I can customize a collection that they will love and will bring the best value to them. Everyone is different, so finding the right value and collections for each one is my aim.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first step is always to hop on the phone/zoom and find out the vision and dream the client has. Once we discuss what they are looking for, the next step will be to see how I can make their session/wedding day, even better than what they expected.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am currently taking courses on Wedding photography, as well as one on one mentorship. I am determined to not only improve my skills as a photographer but also provide the best experience for couples and families.
