Chris and his wife, Jen are simply amazing. They do the best work in the area, if not in New York. He does whatever he can to get the best shots, whether it be jumping on random pieces of furniture or standing in the rain to get breath-taking photographs. They will not disappoint you. His photos go above and beyond your expectation. He also worked with my crazy idea as my first look in a blow up dinosaur costume, which he even made THAT look amazing.

Go with your gut
The main thing i can say with hiring a photographer is GO WITH YOUR GUT. I hired a photographer ( not chris) when I first got engaged who was highly well known and popular and had a low price in the photography world. I wasn’t truly amazed by his photos they were just par and had no editing to them. I used him for an engagement shoot and from the second we started the shoot his energy was very rushed and anxious and i got a pit in my stomach about hiring him. Once we got the photos back I decided I did not want to work with him and so I had to go back to the drawing board. I found Chris but figured there was no way I could afford someone who had photos with as nice of quality as his. I messaged him on Facebook just to check and he was a bit over budget I told him unfortunately I could not afford that and he replied “that’s my off season I can work with that”. My mouth dropped and I ran around cheering. A few weeks later my fiancé and i met with him and he was the complete opposite of the previous photographer I had hired. He was SO relaxed and comforting. He just knew what he wanted to do and he didn’t try to sell us anything or tell us any lies and i booked him right away. He shot our wedding last Saturday and i am not lying when i tell you except for staged photos i NEVER saw him (which is a HUGE positive). I don’t remember seeing him walking down the aisle, during the first dance, nothing. But all of the sudden he uploaded these INSANE photos that he took that according to all my friends and family are “award winning”. And not only that but he had 30 photos uploaded in 3 days after the wedding! The morning after we were at breakfast and got 4 photos! Tell me a photographer that gives you photos that quick! It was chilly the day of our wedding and he consistently asked me if i was too cold and wanted to go inside. He made all of our private photos and family photos extremely quick and everyone loved him. I cannot say enough about the kind heart and talent this man has. He is worth EVERY penny.

Chris and Jen’s photos of our wedding are so much better than I could have ever imagined!! They were able to capture every nuance of the emotion and the meaning of the most perfect day ever. I love every image! Their professionalism and talent are exemplary. I cannot adequately express how much I appreciate all the work they did the day of the wedding and since to produce such beautiful images. Chris and Jen worked seamlessly with the other vendors to be present for every important moment while not making their presence felt. The candids were truly candid and the more formal poses were fun and easygoing. We couldn’t be happier!
Chris Sawicki is regarded as one of the top photographers in Upstate New York...and with good reason! I have worked with Chris on multiple occasions and he is very knowledgeable, talented and an all around fun guy! I would HIGHLY recommend him for any occasion... wedding, engagement, modeling shots.... He does it all beautifully!
Chris Sawicki is a really amazing photographer, and a really great guy to work with. I have worked weddings with Chris, he was very professional and easy to work with. He got all the shots - and even took the time to do some really innovative and different shots using different lighting. He did a great job.
Chris takes amazing pride in his work and it show with every click of the shutter! You won't be disappointed!!
