Experience

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.

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!

Amazing Photographer! You need him!

Chris is the literal best photographer a bride could ask for! Don’t waste your time on anyone else. He was by far my favorite vendor! I can’t say enough about him. If you want a specific shot, he will get it done no matter what!

Great Photographer for your wedding

Chris was super great from the start. Very good and open communication as far as expectations from both parties. He always responded and addressed my concerns. On our wedding day he came early, and was very professional the entire day. He's very knowledgeable about lighting and angles. He went above and beyond for us on our special day and after. We got our photos back fast, within a month and they're perfect. Highly recommend him to anyone in the Knoxville/ Gatlinburg area.
