About

$4,300 Most Popular Price

Sharing photos right after your wedding. Looking back while toasting a decade. Or telling your kids the story of Mommy and Daddy. Your favorite photos won’t be stylized shoe pics or a close up of your cake.

You’ll linger over that look on his face when he first saw you as his bride. Your parents welling up with happy tears as they watched you say your vows. Those first stolen moments as man and wife (how did that stealthy photographer find you? But you are so glad he did.)

Your wedding day isn’t just about a schedule of events, making sure your groom’s socks match your garter, or even making sure the DJ doesn’t play the Macarena (no matter how many times Aunt Susie requests it).

It’s about those invisible moments that connect us with the people we love.

I’m Chris from The Story Photography.

And I specialize in capturing emotions on your wedding day. When you remember your wedding, it will be about more than just how you looked. It will be about how you felt.

Your favorite pictures aren’t the formal family portraits where everyone is wearing matching shirts and sitting perfectly still.

Your favorites are that pic of Dad as he fell in the pool. That perfectly timed shot of the time you made your friend laugh so hard she fell off her chair.

Your best memories are the candid moments in life. I capture those teary, happy, silly, candid moments from your wedding that will fill your heart when you look back.

    Exceptional and Incredible Photographer

    We met Chris back in 2019 when we booked him for our wedding. The entire planning process with him was phenomenal. He helped us navigate our postponement with ease, handled challenges from others with grace, and kept me calm throughout the entire process. He showed up at our door ready for our wedding and did an exquisite job. He was calm, attentive, creative and made this nervous bride feel at ease. After our ceremony he brought us over to the lake for some scenic pictures of just the two of us and it was great to have a few moments of quiet, which I think Chris knew we needed. He captured the entire day beautifully and with such grace. He truly kept me and my husband feeling so calm and happy that day and we can’t thank him enough for all he did to make our day feel so special. Thank you, Chris!

    Captured The Magic Perfectly!

    Chris went above and beyond our expectations as our wedding photographer in Ithaca, NY. It was incredibly easy to set up communication with him months before our wedding, especially as we planned our wedding 100% virtually.

    He was very knowledgable about our venue, and was accepting of our requested shots throughout the day, while having his own artistic suggestions. His photographs captured the magic of the day (and then some), while his editing style kept the photos looking natural, but refined.

    He blended into the background during the day and wasn't a distraction for us or our guest at the ceremony or reception while capturing every moment and the energy of the day perfectly.

    Most importantly, he was prompt with getting the prints to us just a few weeks after the wedding.

    Chris is absolutely the best!

    Chris was truly the best, we absolutely loved our experience working with him! He captured all of the big and little moments and emotions from our wedding day, and I'm still pouring over his beautiful photos.

    He was extremely organized and responsive leading up to our wedding - even when we had to change our venue three weeks beforehand due to Covid.

    Like a lot of men, my husband wasn't sure about the idea of a photoshoot, and Chris had immediately put him at ease and made it fun.

    We especially appreciated his professional, calming demeanor during such a busy day. He also turned around our photos very quickly, so we were able to see them during our honeymoon!

    Thank you so much Chris, we loved working with you!

You can see from Chris's website that he does some of the finest work around, and you can get a sense of the type of person he is. I can't stress to my clients enough how important it is to have not only a photographer who is skilled but also comes with character and sensitivity. This is soo important! Emotions run high on a wedding day and having a level headed, kind and workable photographer is essential. You'll find that and more in Chris! He's a delight to work with.
