Chris Nachtwey is a artistic wedding photographer based in Connecticut. Creating wedding photography for the modern couple. Chris is available for weddings in the United States and Internationally. 


Q: What's your wedding photography style?

A: I approach weddings as a storyteller, telling your story as it unfolds. My style is unobtrusive and photojournalistic in nature, with a touch of classic imagery when the moment calls for it. I'm one of those photographers who lives to capture the special candid moments throughout the day, classy family formals, and amazing images during a beautiful sunset, in the rain, or during a snowstorm. I'm not one of those photographers who will come up to you during the first dance and say, "Look at the camera and smile!".

Q: What's your editing style?

A:  I edit for clean, vibrant color images, and contrasty, moody black and white images. 

Q: Do you work with a second photographer?

A: I sure do! Every wedding collection includes a second photographer.

Q: DO YOU offer engagement sessions?

A: Yup! All collections include a complimentary engagement session.

Q: Do we get digital files?

A: Absolutely. I've always done this because I think it's important for you to have those images to use, print, and share.

Q: How are files delivered?

A: I use to send them to you on a USB, but times have changed. You download your high-res files directly from your private online gallery now. That way you can save and back them up anyway you would like. Online download also makes it a lot easier for family and friends to download the photos they would like if you share your gallery with them. 

Q: when will we receive our photos?

A: I always say within 8 weeks just incase I'm busy. Usually, it's much sooner than that, more like 4 to 6 weeks. I will post a few teasers on social media within a few days of your wedding. That way you can showoff how awesome your day was while I work on the rest of them. 


A: Yes! Most collections include a wedding album. To me a wedding album is truly your first heirloom as a new family and I'm a strong believer that every couple should have an album to remember their day. That's why I only offer the highest quality, built to last, professional albums, that only professional photographers have access to.


A: Yes! You can order prints directly from your online gallery, and so can anyone you share your gallery with! My professional prints are beautiful, and shipped directly from my trusted professional lab to your doorstep. 

Q: I'm getting married out of town, do you do destination weddings?

A: Yes! I shoot all over New England and beyond. Let's chat!

Q: We're really interested, can we meet you first?

A: Absolutely, you're more then welcome to visit my studio in the historic Velvet Mill in Stonington, CT to chat. I'm also happy to meet via FaceTime, Skype, or chat on the phone. Whatever works better for you, is cool with me. 

Q: Is this your full-time job?

A: Yup!
