Featured Engagement Sessions
What's up guys? Thanks for checking out my work! About sections are always hard to write, but here we go.... First and foremost I'm a husband (love you April) and father to one super cute daughter (love ya Autumn). The three of us and our silly rescue pup Brady live on the shoreline in Groton, CT. April and I both grew up a few towns over and even dated in middle school (that first time around didn't work out tho..lol). A few years ago we bought our first house and now we're happy to call Southeastern, CT our home. My photography style is a little artistic/edgy, candid, a little classic when the moment calls for it and really just capturing my couples having a ton of fun.
- I worked at ESPN for 6 years before taking the leap of faith and becoming self-employed almost 5 years ago.
- I was a regular author for slrlounge.com, one of the largest photography education websites in the world. I wrote 3-4 articles a week for over two years.
- I've shot over 100 weddings and counting.
- I use to brew my own beer and one time the bottles exploded during the fermentation process..lol.
- I love craft beer, especially IPA's. I love Beer'd, Trillium, Treehouse, and so many others.
- I've loved the Green Bay Packers since I was about 5. I'm even a shareholder.
- I'm a avid fisherman, especially surf fishing and out on my families boat.
- I love to snowboard.
- Reeses Peanut Butter Cups are my kryptonite (I just can't say no to 1 or 2 or maybe 3).
- Oh I shoot Nikon if you were wondering.
Heirlooms Made Here
Heirloom Leather Wedding Albums
"Your wedding was so beautiful, can I see the USB drive?" -Said no Grandma ever
A wedding album is truly your first heirloom as a new family and I'm a strong believer that every couple should have a real heirloom quality album to remember their day. Check out the video below to see one for yourself!
What couples are saying about their album and some photos they've sent me
"Sitting down with Chris to build our wedding album was a great experience! Instead of going back and forth over email or Skype, we were able to relax with some refreshments at Chris's home office and review the album together. Not only was it great to catch up with Chris after the wedding, but it also made the whole decision process much easier! Working together to build the perfect album was fun, and it was great to work through it in real time with Chris there to give us recommendations. Once we agreed on the final lay out, Chris was able to order it and the album came in the mail quickly and was delivered right to our home. We are so pleased with the final product! Thank you Chris!" -Alex and Russ
"After seeing all of our amazing pictures taken by Chris we had no idea how we were going to choose pictures to put into our album to tell the story of our day. When we met with Chris at our album viewing party we could not have been happier with the layout that he had put together and the pictures that he had chosen to perfectly show the highlights of our wedding. Chris was easy going during the viewing and allowed us to make any changes in pictures that we wanted and was able to quickly add them to the layout to show us how everything would look. We could not have asked for a better wedding photographer in the entire process from engagement pictures through putting together our album. We will cherish our wedding album for years to come." -Stephanie and Rob
