about chris

Thank you for visiting my website. It’s humbling that clients invite me into their lives to document their histories and tell their stories.
 
I have a beautiful family–my wife Megan and I had our first date as freshman in high school and now we have four sons that amaze us every day.

I specialize in people photography. Real people… Minimal posing…. Authentic moments…

I am available for weddings, events, portraits, editorial and commercial assignments. If you’re looking for a photographer, I’d love to hear from you.
