The most incredible photos I could have asked for

In short, working with Chris is the best experience I could have asked for. I am a former wedding photographer myself and had no doubts about choosing Chris for my own wedding. Every single detail was captured perfectly, and throughout the entire process from planning to the day of to delivery of photos, Chris was nothing less than prompt, courteous, responsive, professional, and accommodating. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again!

The best photographer!!

I found Chris Schmitt because two of my bridesmaids used him for their weddings, and I loved their photos. Chris is an outstanding photographer in every way -- kind, artistic, easy to work with, energetic, passionate, but most importantly SO TALENTED!!! I had a NYE wedding at Casa Del Mar on the beach, and my wedding sneak peek photos are truly insane. Everyone keeps commenting on them and asking who my photographer was. Chris and his wife did the most beautiful job directing us on the wedding day, and he sent my husband and I our photos in a very timely manner, which we so appreciated. Chris was also very organized on the day. We went through our wedding party shots and family shots with lots of time to spare so I could go relax right before my ceremony. Lastly, not only did Chris do our wedding photos, he also shot our engagement photos in Malibu, which are equally as stunning. Hire Chris Schmitt for your big day and you won't regret it!

Beautifully Captured Every Moment

Chris was so helpful from our first conversation. He made recommendations on our timeline based on what photos we wanted to get and was able to accommodate a very last minute add on for a videographer! The photos he took are absolutely breathtaking; I want to frame every single one of them! He helped us loosen up in front of the camera, and all the shots look natural. I can't recommend him enough!

Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your lives, and having it documented through beautiful photography is one of the best investments you'll make together as a couple. I have had the pleasure of working with Chris Schmitt Photography on numerous weddings, and while his artistry through photography speaks for itself, his great humor combined with his professionalism and knowledge of exactly what it takes to create beautiful photos ensures that I will continue to recommend him again and again to future brides and grooms.

The first time I met Chris, I immediately knew that he was not only someone that I'd like to work with for years to come, but someone I could be friends with as well. He is such a fun and personable guy that is so easy to work with, but also is an amazing photographer. His work speaks for itself. His pictures are stunning. I love his work (and working with him) so much, that I actually booked him to shoot my wedding. Our pictures were absolutely beautiful, and my wife and I loved working with him. He's a total pro and I can't say enough great things about him. I highly recommend Chris Schmitt Photography!
