Using pictorial photojournalism, documentary photos composed with an innovative style, Pilster Photography strives to take photos outside of the box. We work hard to create images you might not expect.
We realize how important your photography is, so on your day Pilster Photography does not have a set clock or a set amount of images taken. This is our philosophy, because you never know when that special moment is going to happen. We want to be there with your bridesmaids when they are bringing you coffee in the morning, or at the hair salon as you enjoy a moment with your mom. We will then stay until you load up into a carriage and are whisked away to your honeymoon.
For over seven years Chad has documented people's lives as an award-winning photojournalist. He has had work published by the Orlando Sentinel, USA Today, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Associated Press, Daytona Beach News-Journal, and more. Currently he is a member of the National Press Photographers Association, and the Wedding Photojournalist Association.
We are located in Central Florida, but available to travel anywhere in the world. Please inquire!

If you are not the type of bride who is looking for boring, traditional wedding photos then Pilster Photography is the perfect company for you. I worked with James and Chad. They were very friendly yet professional and as soon as we met I was immediately comfortable with them. As they were shooting you could see their creative mind at work. While most of the photos they took of the bridal party and evening were artistic, they were more than happy to take traditional pictures of the family (for those family members who have to have them!). I will definitely be working with them for future shoots!Sent on 02/03/2013

Chad is absolutely amazing! He is so creative and can find an amazing shot in any surrounding. He isn't one of those boring photographers who takes all the "normal" wedding photos. He makes every shot interesting and original. He is incredibly professional and easy to work with. I am in love with all of my engagement pictures and can't wait to see my wedding photos. I would highly recommend Chad to anyone!Sent on 06/26/2012

Finding a photographer that you love is not an easy task! I have had many friends and family members stress over this part of their wedding. Luckily, we found Chad.Sent on 05/17/2012
Chad Pilster is extremely talented and a true professional. We felt at ease the first time we met Chad at our e-session. He worked with us in the months prior to try and find a setting and a theme for the pictures that was truly unique to us. He put us right at ease and did a wonderful job.
Our wedding was exactly the same. Chad was a breeze to work with. He was on time, made everyone comfortable right away and had some great ideas. During the reception, he and James were everywhere and nowhere all at the same time. We hardly noticed them, as we were all having a blast, but the shots that they took are stunning. My Mother-in-law said it best when she said, "These aren't just pictures. These are works of art." She is definitely right about that.
Chad is easy going, incredibly talented and professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants unique pictures that they will cherish forever.
If you are looking to create a story from your wedding photos then Chad is the photographer you seek! He is creative in a way that is so unique. You can tell he searches out of the box for new ideas to capture the big moments on your wedding day.
We love Chad. He has a great passion for what he does. We love to look at his work. He has worked hard in our industry and we endorse him. Thanks Pilster Photography! Geona
