We had the best time shooting wedding photos with Chris! His pictures turned out AMAZING and we couldn't be happier with them! He was so great and fun to work with which is what we really wanted! We are so thankful for the beautiful pictures he took for us. If you need an AWESOME, talented, fun and overall fantastic photographer, Chris is your guy! Thank you for everything! - Soleya

 

Chris did an outstanding job on our wedding photos! We wanted to take photos with our wedding party in nature in a unique place before our ceremony, and Chris came up with the perfect location and facilitated everything for us - he even led the way for our limo driver to get there! Chris was very detail-oriented and included so many thoughtful touches throughout the day - he had a crochet hook handy when my mom was buttoning my dress, he got my husband and I refills on our drinks when they were getting low during the reception, used a vintage Polaroid for a few special moments, fetched a microphone for me when we wanted to say thanks to our wedding guests...and all of this is ON TOP of taking absolutely gorgeous photos of the entire day! The photos were delivered very quickly digitally, and we had a lovely little package waiting for us in the mail when we got home from our honeymoon with the flash drive, a few little prints, and the polaroids. We are so happy with how everything turned out, and I can't recommend Chris more! - Cindy

 

WOW! Best photographer ever. Chris did both our engagement and wedding photos and I couldn't be happier with the results. We got so many amazing photos and he was so so fast getting us our pictures back. Chris is super easy to be around and made getting our photos taken extremely fun and not awkward at all. Seriously can't say enough good things - would recommend him to anyone. - Kelsey

 

Chris was amazing! From our intitial contact to the day of he was a pleasure to work with, friendly, and clearly very talented. Along with his second shooter (and beautiful fiancé) Lauren, he captured our wedding and bridal party on a very cold Sunday in mid December. I remember thinking at time you would be able to tell how terrible the weather was in the pictures but he kept us all moving and laughing so much that our outdoor pictures are absolutely stunning. His use of lighting and nature really shone through, and the setting looked magical instead of miserable. One of my favorite things about my wedding is that I can look back at the beautiful, detailed moments he took and feel like they could not be any better. Better yet, we recieved a super cute little package with a USB, some Polaroids he took the day of, as well as some gorgeous high quality prints on Christmas Eve! Not even 2 weeks after our wedding! Needless to say. Best. Present. Ever. He is truly a joy and a joy to work with. - Bre

 

I truly cannot say enough outstanding things about Chris - he and his wife, Lauren, gave Brandon and me the gift of THE most incredible engagement and wedding pictures that we could have imagined! He was extremely kind, considerate, and the perfect combination of easy-going yet able to keep the often hectic wedding day photo schedule on-task and on-time. His photographs are beautiful and unique, and he has a flare for the outdoors that is revealed in every photo he takes - this was just perfect for Brandon and me. He made us feel so comfortable from Day 1, and was truly invested in us and in capturing every moment of our engagement and wedding day in the most beautiful way. We couldn't be happier with our photos, and recommend him highly! - Michelle

 

Chris and Lauren were amazing to work with! Not only were our wedding photos gorgeous, but we have found a photographer for every adventure in our life. You will not be disappointed! - Natosha

 

Chris' work is phenomenal. He goes above and beyond to make sure you have the best pictures! My husband and I are so please with how our pictures turned out and can't wait to hang them up! - Katie

 

To start, Chris is AMAZING!!! He was so accommodating especially being called on short notice, which was 45 days before our wedding that was in Dallas, TX. My brother referred me to him and we couldn't have been happier with our choice! We feel that Chris and Lauren captured all of the highlights of the day and are seriously 2 of the sweetest people you will ever meet! Our wedding had around 150 guests, we were in 3 locations, and they were there every step of the way - even during a fire drill evacuation during the reception. Chris & Lauren truly want you to be happy and they are just AWESOME. Another really cool detail that he did was "kodak" moments of the day. This was so unique and just another awesome keepsake for the happiest day of our lives :). There aren't enough words to say just how grateful we are and how talented Chris and Lauren are...thank you all so much for an absolutely amazing day!!! - Sarah

 

Chris was so amazing on our wedding day! He was kind, patient, and kept everyone calm!! We cannot thank him enough for his sweet presence on our big day! - Brooke

 

Chris and his wife captured our wedding day and did an outstanding job. They are extremely professional and worked very hard to get all the pictures we requested from several angles. They had plenty of ideas for poses ready when we weren't sure what to do. The finalized pictures were even better than we could have imagined! I would hire them again without hesitation. Their pricing options were the best we found and the quality was at the top of the industry. - Garrett

 

Chris and Lauren were amazing. They were hands down the best vendors at our wedding, even my guests repeatedly commented on how awesome they were. Very easy to work with and the photos turned out amazing! I got so many compliments on them and we absolutely love them! I can't wait to print them off and hang them around our house. We highly recommend them! - Amber

 

Looking at all of Chris' photos, you really hope that your wedding photos turn out just like that. We got our wedding photos today and they are even better than I had hoped. Chris and Lauren were awesome and flexible the day of the wedding and so easy to work with! I genuinely cannot say enough good things about them and their work. - Hannah

 

Chris is incredibly talented. He shot our engagement & wedding photos and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. 5 stars for sure. - Mark

 

Chris was amazing, and we are so glad we chose him to shoot our big day! He was completely accommodating and easy to communicate with from the beginning, and made us and all of our family and friends feel very comfortable. His work speaks for itself, we love how naturally and beautifully he captures everyone, especially outdoors. To top it off, he got all of our photos back very quickly. Thank you, Chris! - Anna

 

Where to even start? I can't say enough good things about Chris, from engagement pictures to the wedding, not only are they some of the most beautiful images I have ever seen he has been incredibly flexible, calming, and comforting to work with and just down right fun!. We had to reschedule our engagement session not once, but three times because of weather. Once it was finally nice outside to take photos all the waterfall places I wanted to go had dried up, what did he do you ask he scoured Springfield and found an overflow damn type place where we almost got killed by a water moccasin all to get the "waterfall" picture I wanted. Then comes the wedding day, storms, hail, tornado warnings oh and did I mention an outside wedding! But he helped keep me calm and still captured the most beautiful images possible! Thank you Chris!!!! You rock and we will never forget you! - Krystin

 

Chris and his wife just did our wedding this last weekend at the Savoy Ballroom. They were both super great to work with and are up for anything. Sometimes pictures can be awkward but they make everything comfortable and fun! He shot our engagement pictures in the fall in Arkansas and we have loved working with him, we cannot wait to see our wedding photos, they will be wonderful! - Dalton

 

Chris is incredibly talented, and more than that, just a genuinely great human being. There are a lot of photographers out there, but very few of the caliber of Chris. I highly recommend him! - Joe

 

Amazing proposal and engagement photos! He went above and beyond and even hiked through a river and up a mountain for some amazing pictures! - Melonie

 

Chris did both our engagement shoot and our wedding shoot. He's a natural who has great spots in mind and even drove an hour and a half to get to our family farm. He's a funny guy who enjoys cracking jokes with his clients and can always make the smiles in your photos natural because of how much fun he creates during the job. I'd recommend him to anybody. - Adam

 

I was so excited to find Chris! We booked him and a second photographer for our big day (Lauren).
Besides him and Lauren being adorable... they took awesome photos and are amazing at what they do! We are so happy they captured our big day for us to always have.

 

Thank you Chris and Lauren! I can't wait to have more photos taken by you! - Katie

 

I cannot wait to show everyone our pictures tonight at our reception! Chris exceeded my expectations & really made my family feel special! He was so easy to work with; My family is still complementing how much they liked him. I didn't know the 1st thing about getting a photographer & he came highly recommended. I was able to relax & just let him do his thing! From the lighting, to my dog, to my crazy chickens photo bombing... He captured the most perfect day in the perfect way. - Katherine

 

Chris has an amazing ability to capture light in a way that amplifies his pictures. I would greatly recommend him for any event. There are few photographers that are born with this type of ability. You will not be disappointed. - Dan

 

We can not say enough good things about Chris. Wedding photographers are very important when it comes to a wedding because that's all you have to look back at to relive your big day. Our wedding planner Allie recommended Chris. I knew from the moment I contact him that we made the right choice. He is very easy to work with and laid back which is just mine and my husbands style. I was so happy to not have to worry about what pictures we wanted taken the day of the wedding. I had sent Chris my Wedding Photo Pinterest board and he took the time to download it to his phone so he was prepared the day of. We just received all of our photos from our wedding day back and we are IN LOVE!!! They turned out way better then we could of ever imagined. Our daughter was very tired the day of our wedding and we were worried we didn't get any good photos with her but we sure were wrong! We got a ton and we are so happy about that. Chris was EXTREMELY patient with her. Every last detail was nothing less than perfect even down to the delivery of our photos yesterday. We can not thank Chris enough for capturing our big day and for all of the beautiful photos we will cherish forever. You WILL NOT regret choosing Chris to be your wedding photographer!!!!! - Angelea

 

We can't say enough about Chris and Lauren and their amazing photography skills!! Our wedding was one of three over Labor Day weekend, but they made us feel incredibly important and special. They were polite (and also quick and efficient) with our families (which can be a challenge with our large group), helped with props and moving us around the wedding venue, and were just an overall light throughout the day. If I had a question or concern, they were quick to respond and either take care of what was needed or find someone who could. And that's not saying anything about the photography itself! Our pictures are more beautiful than we imagined they ever would be - and we had high expectations. Chris and the memories he gave us were worth every bit of the investment! Thank you again, Chris and Lauren! You were awesome, and we can't recommend you enough!!  - Brittni
