Absolute perfection! We could not have asked a better photographer for our wedding. Chris and his wife, Andrea, captured our wedding day perfectly and the pictures were absolutely breathtaking. We were blown away by his talent and artistic eye. From the start, Chris listened to our vision and made sure he captured every moment that was important to us. Even with a somewhat difficult venue, limited time, and a large wedding party, he was able to capture every singe moment with ease and professionalism. He and Andrea made the day super fun day and kept things moving along and never once felt rushed. Our wedding pictures turned out beautiful and we constantly get compliments on them. Working with Chris was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Thank you both for helping make our day so perfect!Sent on 12/13/2017

Chris and Hana were amazing! They were very organized and on top of everything. Quick at getting good shots and flexible with new additions. Great with direction and adaptive to changing schedules. We have beautiful pictures from our wedding. I would recommend them to any of my friends and family.Sent on 12/18/2019

Beautiful engagement photos!
My fiancé and I had an engagement photo shoot with Chris on April 10 at the Arboretum in Arcadia, CA. Chris immediately made us feel at ease and comfortable and when giving us direction. We had so much fun during the shoot, and we were amazed at how quickly Chris turned the photos around. They are stunning! We loved the experience and photos so much that we have hired Chris for our wedding day in October. Highly recommend!Sent on 05/01/2019

I've worked with several of Chris's brides and each time I am amazed at the photos I see! Being a makeup artist, It is important to get good samples of my work. Chris has the ability to create stunning photographs of any subject & inspires others in the field.
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!
