Capturing moments

Chris focuses on more than just capturing a nice photo, he is all about capturing moments and emotion. He is absolutely amazing to work with; Not just a great photographer, but a genuine and caring individual that we had the pleasure of getting to know during our wedding day. Some people may wonder about him being a one-man show, but I assure you he is basically a photo-ninja and will be everywhere you need him to be. If you are lucky enough to hire Chris for your wedding day, you will not be disappointed!!!

Finding a superb photographer was #2 on our list (finding a place to actually get married was #1). As outdoor enthusiasts that spend more time behind a camera than in front of it, we were a bit unsure what to do, so much so that we skipped an engagement shoot altogether. We also wanted to find a photographer that was less focused on us (we’re not really “portait” people, if you couldn’t tell), and would include the incredible beauty of the place where we got married. I wore hiking boots for the photos, and I am very glad that I did. Chris had us climbing all over the rocks and cliffs around Black Rock Oceanfront Resort, and the photos we got made everything worth it (even the blazing heat that day). Chris was nice and bossy and told us exactly what to do and how to pose so we didn’t look like the completely awkward goofs that we are. He shoots so many weddings down in the area that he knows all the great places to go, making our job easy, especially since we hadn’t been out there ahead of time to scope out spots!

Chris is so easy going and exceptional to work with. He was always quick to answer any questions I had and eager to ensure we got exactly what we wanted on our wedding day. The quality of his photos for both our engagement session and wedding was outstanding.... my husband and I cannot be happier. His prices are also very reasonable. I highly recommend Chris' wedding photography services!

Chris's photos were absolutely stunning! He offered very reasonable rates especially for the calibre of photographs he takes. He has a great reputation on Vancouver Island and is able to travel almost anywhere in Canada to take photos.

AMAZING. We knew looking at his portfolio that he was AMAZING, but we had no idea we would have so much fun doing it, and that ALL of the photos would be to that caliber. I love our photos, and I will cherish them forever. Chris was also very good at communicating with us - responding promptly and with a sense of humour. He was so professional once he arrived onsite - all of our guests were talking about him. I can't say enough good things - look him up and you'll see he's only been reviewed 5 stars.
