Chris received a degree in civil engineering from the University of Washington and after very quickly realizing he was not passionate about it left the field to find a career he was excited about. Chris had already been an avid landscape/ski photographer in his spare time which filled a creative need he had always possessed. After quiting his job and moving to California for a short time, a friend recommended he photograph weddings. Chris was reluctant at the suggestion but assisted on one and was immediately hooked. He assisted on his first wedding in 2002 and has been specializing in wedding photography ever since. He continues to love the artistic path he took.
Christopher Gendron Photography does not want couples to stress about choosing the right package. Instead, he wants couples to focus on choosing the right photographer. This is why he keeps his package simple yet easily adjustable if necessary. He doesn't want couples to feel like they are being nickel and dimed. Chris wants them to know that they are put first as it is their show, not his. His basic package includes:

Incredible! Couldn't ask for better!
Chris was absolutely amazing! From our first meeting he was incredibly friendly and professional; he put us at ease and helped guide us through the whole process. Having the engagement shoot included allowed us to get to know Chris and become more comfortable in front of the camera before our actual wedding day. As a bonus, Chris is a great skier, so we were able to have our engagement shoot at our happy place: on the ski slopes at Crystal Mountain.
The day of the wedding, Chris and his assistant were right on time and jumped into shooting without distracting us from our preparations. They seamlessly blended into the day and provided us with many beautiful candid shots, as well as the planned shots we were hoping to get. As wedding experts, they even helped us with logistics that we had not planned for, like attaching my bridal veil and accurately filling out our marriage certificate (bonus!).
We got our pictures back less than 6 weeks after the wedding and were incredibly happy at how amazing all 2700 pictures were! We definitely have our work cut out for us to narrow down which pictures we want to print. Overall, we were thrilled with Chris's energy, organization, and talented photography skills! Hire him; you won't regret it!Sent on 01/25/2020

Fun and relaxed
We hired Chris for our August 15th wedding after our first photographer wasn't able to due to the virus. He was absolutely wonderful! He was very responsive to my emails and questions. He was very easy to work with. We enjoyed his fun personality and flexibility. He was willing to go to several locations, including my in laws for a little gathering after since we couldn't have a reception. We had a great time taking pictures, he made us feel relaxed and encouraged us to be ourselves. He is great at taking candid photos. He really gets into his work and you can tell he enjoys it. He climbed on a railing, got a bit wet in a creek, and got into the trees to get beautiful shots. Our pictures are gorgeous. Everyone from the wedding really enjoyed him and still talk about him. I really liked that he is unlimited time so you don't have to feel constrained. He took over 2,000 pictures. He really made our day wonderful in the midst of a lot of challenges with the virus. We would definitely recommend Chris to anyone.Sent on 09/13/2020

I'm sure as a nervous bride you have read a bunch of glowing reviews for photographers. But I have to say with Chris, NOTHING is exaggerated. He was hands down my best, and well worth the money, expense. From our engagement session that left us with TONS of stunning pictures to use to our actual wedding day, everything was perfect. He came well prepared, with a plan and several back up plans and made me feel beautiful and my husband comfortable. Worth EVERY PENNY. Stop looking at other photographers and just hire Chris. You will not regret it.Sent on 07/31/2019
