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.

My husband and I are SO glad we went with Christopher Gendron Photography! Chris was clearly the best choice in terms of price, talent, professionalism, and personality. Overall, we couldn't be happier with our wedding photographer!
With Christopher Gendron Photography:
- You get all rights to all of the pictures he takes
- You get a look book of all the pictures he takes
- The price is AMAZING for what you get (no limit to pictures he takes, all rights, no limit to time, no limit to locations)
- The quality of his pictures is top-notch!
- He's professional, and really easy to work with!
From the first meeting, we knew that he was the perfect choice. We got along great, and he was always quick to answer any questions. He scouted out our location to find the places we wanted to take pictures. He's great at suggesting poses based on your personality. He really goes the extra mile to make sure he captures you in your natural form.
I was a hot mess and didn't feel as prepared as I should have, but Chris took over and took AMAZING pictures! He showed us some of the shots he took when he was taking them the day of the wedding! He's so talented! He uses natural light to his advantage and goes the distance to get great pictures! He showed up earlier than I asked and was there to take pictures to the end. He was like a ninja! You hardly realize he's there taking pictures!
Best of all, I have rights to ALL of the pictures he took!
I highly recommend Christopher Gendron Photography. You won't be disappointed by the quality of work or value of what you get. I can't imaging any other photography company taking my wedding pictures.

Chris is so gifted and a true professional. We loved his online portfolio, and as soon as we met up with him, we knew we'd found the photographer for our wedding. His responses were prompt and clear, his prices are incredible for the value you get (all day, assistant photog, unlimited locations, look book, rights to all photos), and best of all, the final result was simply stunning. It was everything we wanted. Chris skillfully guided us to beautiful locations and poses so that we would have the perfect wedding memories together.
I want to share another personal story that makes Chris so special. In the run up to the wedding, my dad was becoming increasingly ill with cancer. The date was already locked in on the earliest day we could manage it, and we weren't sure if he would make it. My family came up with the idea of doing a portrait session with just me, my fiance, and my parents. I explained the idea to Chris and he not only drove from Seattle to Milton to make it happen for us, he captured 200+ beautiful shots and turned them around for us in just a couple days -- and he only asked for gas money. This meant so much to me because we were able to get photos of dad "walking me down the aisle" at our special photo shoot. On the day of the wedding, dad escorted me down the aisle in a wheelchair, and we're so happy to have both of these gorgeous sets. Chris was on top of every special moment throughout the day, providing us even more beautifully captured photos to cherish. I can never thank him enough for these priceless gifts.
Chris has my strongest recommendations in every regard.

My husband and I loved working with Chris!! We did our engagement photos and our wedding photos with him. He is so easy going, makes you feel good about yourself, and has an eye for unique and beautiful photos! He was great at communicating through out the whole process. He was professional and fun to be around.
He was super flexible! We lived far away from where he was located but he never had an issue meeting us where we wanted. When we scheduled our engagement session the first time it ended up pouring down rain. He said if we were down to do our session in the rain he would be a trooper with us which I thought was awesome he would get rained on for us. Luckily my husband was not wanting to do pictures in the rain, although they probably would have looked awesome. We ended up having to reschedule for another day that wasn't scheduled to rain. He drove over an hour to meet us but had to drive all the way back home and he was so nice about it, even though I felt super bad. :)
He was very quick with getting pictures edited and back to us in a timely manner. I cannot express how amazing this man is! The day of our wedding he came bright and early to my hotel to take pictures of the girls and I getting ready. He then drove to the venue and continued snapping pictures away. He also had a second photographer which I thought was great for capturing all of our special moments. They did an amazing job! I loved every moment of working with him. If I had to choose a photographer again for whatever reason, I would choose Chris every time! Words cannot express how great he was in every single way! THANK YOU CHRIS for everything you did for us. Literally EVERYTHING.
