First I want to say that yes, Chris is a very nice person and was friendly to communicate with. He was flexible and courteous. But that being said, I was very disappointed with the quality of photos I received on my wedding day. There were important shots that a professional photographer SHOULD have taken on someone's wedding day. For example:
1) The bride with their mother while getting ready. There was only one shot of me and my mother together and we're not even looking at the camera...
2) There was no retouching done whatsoever. The majority of photos lacked quality and no it was NOT a lighting issue. My videographer was able to snap some shots and they had no issues with getting clear, lit photos at the reception and on the beach that day so I don't understand why the pictures Chris gave me were unfocused and dim. Also, you can see blemishes on upclose (getting ready) shots on my husband's (the grooms) face. For the amount of money spent, the photographer should have cleaned up and edited small touch ups like that. It would have taken him all of a few minutes.
3) Why would you give me a picture of a FLY on a food plate? Are you kidding me? Our cocktail hour was outdoors and the only picture taken of the cheese display you sent had a fly on it! Come on, really? That just lacks any professionalism.

As I stated above, Chris Malpass was nice, friendly to work with, but I'm simply being honest about my experience. You only have one wedding day and person to capture those moments. For what I spent, I could have done without hiring a photographer because other people who had cameras at my wedding that day took clearer, brighter pictures than he did.

Chris was great from the start! He provided excellent service and took the most amazing photos! He did our engagement pictures as well as our wedding day pictures and they left us breathless. At first we thought it would be awkward to have a camera in our face non stop, but with Chris, it seemed so natural. His sense of humor and witty jokes kept a smile on our faces! He captured our story perfectly. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer. We now have the most amazing pictures that captured every aspect of the most amazing day of our lives!!!

We couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer than Chris. From the moment I spoke to him on the phone, to our engagement photos and up until our wedding day he was so amazing to work with. Chris has the ability to fit in and you quickly realize he has never met a stranger. His personality shines and he projects composer in every situation. He makes everyone around him feel at ease. He even went above and beyond normal photographer duties and became an integral part of our day. Our dogs even fell in love with him :) We received our pictures this past week from our wedding and are thrilled with the memories he has left with us forever! I would strongly recommend Chris to anyone that is looking for a qualified compassionate photographer!

Chris is great to work with and like a ninja getting those great shots without even knowing that he's there. He's fun to be around too so that picture taking isn't to painful. I love working with him and suggesting him to my couples. I'm proud to endorse Chris Malpass for your photog needs. Much love, Pastor Cory <><
