Hey you! My name is Chris Stiles from Photography Stiles. I run a dedicated wedding and portrait photography business located in Rocky Hill, Connecticut. My skillset isn't just photographing but ranges from helping the wedding venue coordinator make a game time decision on rain for your outdoor ceremony, (I have fancy/nifty paid radar apps because I'm also a weather geek...no really I do ask!) to rallying the crowd for family portraits because my wife and second shooter extrordinaire was a camp coordinator/counselor for years! You'll find us on the dance floor tapping our feet away beside you because we had a fully rehearsed dance routine for our own wedding! But most of all we want to capture every single moment that you spend glowing on your wedding day! We both love spending our time together laughing at shows like the Big Bang Theory, or trying new (and old) resturarants because we are definitely foodies. Give us a bottle of wine, cozy blankets on the couch with a roaring fire and we have one of our favorite date nights lined up. We also love this job SO much because we are excellent listeners/observers and take to heart every couple we meet. From the engagement session where we get to know each other better, to the big wedding day we love being a part of every moment and emotion throughout. The BEST part is seeing the photos on the computer load up on the first night after the wedding!
Kelley and I are the passionate duo behind this professional wedding business. I've have always loved photography specifically capturing the sky and chasing storms, but it wasn't until after college I fell in love with wedding photography. I enjoy telling stories through my lens to make the most out of every photograph taken and have been pressing the shutter button since 2012! I've had education from some of the best local experts in the field whether that's how to deal with lighting in dark venues, or how to pose a crowd of bridesmaids/groomsmen when everyone is getting rowdy from the excitement of the day. I continue my education continously as the learning curve never ends in Wedding Photography! Kelley acts as my second shooter and assistant for times like where extra lighting is needed on that dance floor to capture those moves in the perfect spotlight (before and after it gets a little crazy). If we're together while the bride is getting her wedding dress on and it's time to photograph those lovely portraits that are going to be memories for a lifetime, one of us acts as the 2nd pair of eyes making sure EVERY detail is lined up. Kelley and I walk into every single wedding and remind ourselves how important all of this was on our wedding day!
I am happy to create a custom wedding package just for you to make your day everything you envisioned it to be. We only shoot one wedding per day, to give you the attention you deserve. Additional services include:
In addition to shooting your wedding day, we find it extremely important to include an engagement session as this is a fun, relaxed way to get in front of the camera together so it's one less thing to think about on your wedding day! Not to mention we love to see what you're going to use as your save the date photo! Additional services include:

Have you ever met someone and known right away that they were going to be someone incredibly important in your life? I mean, we're all looking at wedding photographers, so I would assume so, but I mean in strictly a platonic way. That was the feeling when Chris was introduced into our lives and we have Facebook algorithms to thank for that. From Day 1, he made us feel at ease and embraced our quirks amazingly. He is so, so responsive and I can't say enough about how great that has been during this global health crisis. We ended up having to reschedule when we actually got married (from September to a Zoom ceremony in May) and he not only made the time for us to take photos of our Zoom ceremony but was incredibly empathic about the whole thing. When you've been dreaming of your wedding your entire life and then it gets thrown upside down, it meant the absolute world that Chris was able to not only be there to document it but that he truly cared about our happiness and well-being. I can't wait to work with him in the future and I hope you'll do the same.Sent on 05/27/2020

Our experience was just amazing! My fiance is not one for photoshoots but Christopher was awesome about making us feel comfortable. I loved the entire time we were together! He captured exactly what I had pictured. I would recommend him to anyone that is looking into needing engagement/wedding photos. 5 stars for sure!!Sent on 03/31/2020

Amazing experience! Chris did our engagement photo session and he made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. He encouraged us to experiment with silly, fun, and sweet, romantic poses and helped us when we needed inspiration. We picked a really unique location with dim lighting, and he embraced the challenge and made us look awesome! He reassured us that we were “nailing it!” and the photos were living proof! Speaking of, we got our digital photos back in just over one week!!! Highly recommend Chris - you will thank yourself for choosing Photography Stiles for your special events.Sent on 11/27/2019
