Hi, I’m Chris! I live in Columbiana, Ohio with my beautiful wife Katie and two amazing kiddos, Cana and Corinne. I am a man of many hats. I serve at a church, photograph weddings and tattoo a bit on the side.
Wedding photography was not my goal when I first picked up a camera, it was really something I fell into, but over time as photography has gone from a hobby to a something that I spend a lot of time doing, I have found that I love every minute of photographing weddings.
I love weddings because I get to tell the story of your wedding day, and I think the most important parts of that story are people’s natural interactions. I won’t tell your dad to give you a hug and a kiss when he sees you in your wedding dress for the first time, but I will be there to capture it when it happens. You may even think that I missed it, because I’m sneaky like that.
Being able to give people photographs of their special moments is why I love what I do. No matter where you live, I’d love to hear from you.
