We love photography! This is one of our greatest passions and we are excited to share it with you. We shot our first wedding in 2004 and were immediately hooked. We have been blessed to have some of the greatest photography mentors on the planet. We are always growing and always changing to be the very best we can be.
There is something incredibly special about the wedding day. A day much dreamed of and planned for, with no chance for "do-overs." It has to be right the first time. Of all the people we have the opportunity to shoot, our absolute favorite is the couple. Too often, the love and romance that brought these two individuals and their families together can get lost in the stress of the wedding day. This is where we come in. We love to interact and create a relaxed, fun environment. That really is one of the big keys to getting awesome images - you have to be relaxed and having fun! We want you to have a great experience on your wedding day. Our goal is to produce breathtaking images of the most special day of your life-artwork that you will treasure for a lifetime.

*Feel free to click on my username for several photos done by Chris and Julie Sharber at our wedding*Sent on 04/27/2010
Chris and Julie are an amazing husband and wife team - having that dynamic I feel makes all the difference in how they work together to create their images, especially at weddings where the event is all about a newly wed couple.
My husband and I were ready to book them after our first meeting, which had followed a series of meetings with other photographers we didn't really 'click' with. They invited us into their beautiful home studio, answered all of our questions, and allowed us to look at more photos, prints, and slideshows than we could possibly remember. We were drawn in by their ability to capture both romantic images, and what I call 'the bigger picture'. Chris really knows how to walk far away from a scene and still tell a story, and we loved the prospect of having photos like that of our day.
Needless to say, our meeting with Chris and Julie inspired us to double our budget for photography!
They are very fun to work with, and have a passion for what they do. Our engagement shoot resulted in several beautiful images. One thing that sets the Sharbers apart is that they do have a very special and unique perspective; they don't simply copy what every other wedding photographer in the industry is doing. Their images are stunning and special - which is a testament to their skills as photographers.
On our wedding day they were professional and unobtrusive, working hard in the face of a difficult situation regarding weather (rain) and time (we were running behind). From looking at the photos they captured in the bridal suite, you would never know how stressful that final hour before the ceremony was.
In addition to all of the other beautiful images from our day, they captured a shot that we could not have even asked for - us standing in the meadow underneath a large view of the stormy sky and beautiful July flowers and green trees. That image alone was worth hiring Chris and Julie Sharber for.
After the wedding they invited us back to their home to see a slideshow of the best images, and after reminiscing about the wedding day my new husband and I spent the rest of the evening going through 100's of other beautiful, candid shots they got for us of our day.
Julie patiently and helpfully walked us through designing our album, a gorgeous and professional flush-mount leather bound work of art that sums up everything about our wedding day: we could not have asked for a more gorgeous addition to our home.
We can't thank them enough for all that they have done: if you are looking for unique, gorgeous, artistic wedding photography from one of the most welcoming couples you will ever meet, then I highly recommend that you consider Chris and Julie Sharber.

I am so in love with Chris' photos of my daughter Lindsay and her husband Justin. Chris knows just how to capture priceless moments in one shot; a moment that may only be here for only a split second and then gone. He is so enjoyable as a photographer and as a person; he knows how to bring laughter to a photo shoot and yet remains very professional. There is such an easiness about him that it makes having your photo taken an absolute joyful experience. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great photographer that delivers excellent photos and superb customer service before and after the shoot!Sent on 05/23/2010

Chris is an amazing photographer, and without Julie the final product wouldn't be the same too. Both work with a contagious joy and will make you feel easy in front of a camera.Sent on 01/27/2011
We love this couple. They did a wonderful job taking the pictures of our wedding, and our engagement.
Originally we thought that the price was high, and we found that it is high for the wedding market in general. To hire good professional wedding photographers is not cheap, at least it is a gift or given. But after several meetings with several photographers we went with Chris and Julie; we liked them and we loved their portfolio. It was the only portfolio we saw where we didn't see a picture we could say we could take ourselves. They showed us what we needed to see to feel comfortable and see this service as the investment that it is.
The wedding day goes by so fast that we (bride and groom) have flashes of memories and barely see it all. Only good quality pictures can help to recreate and catch what we couldn't in the spur of the moment. We love our pictures, we love our album, and they give us the original pictures of everything they shoot, so we own our pictures at the end.
Additional to the pictures, we made wonderful new friends.
Chris and Julie Sharber are top-notch photographers. They photographed a wedding for a couple who got married at Deer Creek Valley Ranch and they were true professionals - and a lot of FUN! They knew just when to take charge and orchestrate the guests for some fun group photos, and they knew just how to stay behind the scenes for some great candids. I highly recommend the Sharbers and I hope we get to work together here at the Ranch again SOON! Christian, Owner, Deer Creek Valley Ranch
