What Couples Are Saying...

"Chris was a true gem! From the moment I contacted him I could tell he was just a genuinely wonderful person, not to mention a talented photographer! We met in the early stages of our engagement and he was warm, welcoming, and obviously excited to meet us. He explained all his services and we agreed to book him. Not only did he photograph our wedding, but he did our engagement session (on my birthday no less!). My husband and I were a little skeptical about doing this, we always thought the engagement pics were a little awkward, but we chose where to do them and he wholeheartedly agreed! He made the shoot as painless as possible, he let us interact and just be ourselves. He captured our relationship effortlessly! Leading up to the big day, he kept in contact with me, asking me what pictures mattered on our day, what we didn't feel comfortable doing, and how he could make the day flow easily. When he and his team (which consisted of his lovely wife April!) showed up on our wedding day he made everything go so smoothly. He was like a ninja getting all those memorable shots! His second photographer was very gracious and clearly hand selected by Chris to work with him. I honestly can't say enough wonderful things about him, he is professional, but personable. My wedding pictures came out even more fantastic than I anticipated. I would HIGHLY recommend Chris to anyone looking for a truly talented person."-Mel

"Chris is passionate about his work and he is extremely creative, talented, and professional! I am ecstatic about the work he did for my engagement shoot and wedding! Now I can cherish these memories forever, and share them with my family!                                            THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!" -Nikole

"When my wife, Brit, and I were initially searching for a photographer we asked to meet with Chris first because he had a great portfolio.  After meeting him in person, I was so certain on having him shoot for our wedding that I declined to meet with other photographers.  What stood out to me about Chris was that he dispelled my preconception of wedding photographers as intrusive, and he took great pride and care in his craft that went beyond just working the camera.  During the wedding he blended in perfectly and captured beautiful, candid moments of us and our guests.  During the still shots, Chris was precise and detail-oriented and the results were fantastic.  I was very proud to share his work with our family. Working with Chris was one of the easiest and most enjoyable aspects of our wedding experience and I highly recommend his thoughtful and talented approach to capturing forever memories."-Nick

"Chris has an amazing eye for capturing that once in a lifetime moment that can be gone in the blink of an eye. Working with Chris - from scheduling the event to planning the "must-have" shots to executing the wedding ceremony, formal photos and reception through to supplying us with beautiful proofs and assembling gorgeous albums - has been the easiest and best decision we've made! Our wedding was a big deal to us and we wanted to make the best investment in the choice of photographer we could possibly make. The return on our investment has far exceeded our expectation. Chris and his team were excellent and went above and beyond to ensure our special day was captured in the absolute best possible way. Highly professional, extremely flexible, completely accessible and right on point with their execution, I would definitely recommend Chris Nachtwey Photography to anyone looking to capture the best memories for any special occasion." -Nancy

"For our wedding, we wanted not only beautiful formal photographs, but also gorgeous candid photographs that truly captured the feel of the day. Chris delivers both, beautifully, and with a warm and genuine manner. Chris was great at working with us to take our engagement photos in Boston, made the process very simple with his surveys, and was pleasant day-of. We connected with him personally right away, and we love the pictures we have." -Diana

"Amazing work. Each picture is beautiful and he and April worked efficiently to cover our wedding day but still allow time to enjoy it all! Thanks so much!" -Karin

"We were lucky to hear about Chris through a mutual family tie, and we're so happy that we did. From the first time we contacted him, Chris was supportive and helpful, and that continued throughout our whole wedding planning process. We were overwhelmed by how beautifully Chris captured our love in our engagement shoot, and then even more so when we saw our wedding photos. He perfectly captured the mood of our wedding day in both the formal and candid shots. We enjoyed working with him, and are looking forward to working with him in the future."-Amanda

"Photographs taken are stunning - we could not be happier with them!! Chris returned our emails and phone calls almost immediately and was able to accommodate our date/time restrictions. He is very passionate and creative with his work, which is clearly displayed in the wonderful photographs that were delivered. Additionally, he made taking photos, which could be extremely awkward, FUN! I would highly recommend him to friends and family - and will use him again in the future to photograph our family." -Mariah

"Chris Nachtwey Photography's work stood out to me amongst others which made me inquire. I couldn't be happier with my choice! My wedding photos are incredible, especially compared to other friend's wedding photos, and just others in general! Plus meeting with him was not stiff and uncomfortable, it was quite a pleasure meeting with him each time we needed to. I highly recommend him."-Jess

"Chris photographed our wedding in New York City and perfectly captured our day with images that we will cherish forever." -Allison

"Chris was awesome to work with. He was very professional and his assistant was on making sure that everything ran smoothly with our pictures. Even when I didn't have a timeline of my wedding, he sat down with me to plan out the day. He had me make a list of everyone/group that I wanted to take pictures with that day and was game to take pictures anywhere. Would so recommend him." -Veda
