About

On WeddingWire since 2010

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鈥檛 be stylized shoe pics or a close up of your cake.

You鈥檒l 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鈥檛 just about a schedule of events, making sure your groom鈥檚 socks match your garter, or even making sure the DJ doesn鈥檛 play the Macarena (no matter how many times Aunt Susie requests it).

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

I鈥檓 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鈥檛 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.

Thank you Chris

I don鈥檛 even know where to start when saying how great Chris was as our wedding photographer. First of all, Chris is a TRUE professional at everything that he does. I鈥檝e seen so many professional photos where there is too much flash or somehow the lighting is off but Chris absolutely NAILED IT with all of our photos, even in challenging lighting indoors, outdoors, low light, etc.I don鈥檛 know how he does it! In addition, he has an excellent eye for locations to take photos and how to help me and my husband pose for absolutely beautiful and natural-looking photos. His editing was also great and it was super easy to access our photos. I can say that he is a truly skilled professional in every aspect of what he does.



In addition, Chris is an incredibly kind person and was SO pleasant to work with. Not only did Chris work very closely with us leading up to the wedding to fully understand our vision, he was also SO great to work with on the day of and he got my husband to smile and pose for lots of photos (which is a huge feat in itself, he usually is over it after a few minutes). As part of the wedding package, Chris offered an engagement photo shoot, which we did at Green Lakes State Park, and these photos came out really really incredible. Also, it was great that Chris taught us how to pose so we would not feel awkward posing for photos on our wedding day and ensured that our wedding photos would come out great as well.



On the day of the wedding, Chris was super accommodating about making sure we got all the family photos and portraits we wanted. He made sure everything went seamless and like I mentioned he made sure our pictures came out absolutely incredible.



Lastly, Chris has an excellent reputation in the local wedding industry - literally every other vendor I worked with (from the florist to wedding planner to makeup) asked who my photographer is and said "OMG you are so lucky, Chris is the best!!" It was so great to see that everyone who has worked with him can see how excellent his work is.



Once again, I cannot say enough good things about Chris. He was amazing to work with and our photos came out so incredible.



Thank you Chris!!!!

Wonderful Experience

Chris at The Story Photography was amazing to work with. We got married at a historic theater which made lighting tricky as there was no natural light. Chris did such an amazing job with our pictures, especially given that unique situation and we were so happy with how all of our pictures came out. He is clearly passionate about what he does and has a ton of experience to back it up. The candid moments he was able to get on camera were amazing too...he went above and beyond! Chris collaborated so well with us to make sure that our vision from our engagement photos through to our wedding day photos were exactly what we wanted. We would highly recommend him!

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.
