About Chris...

Thank you for considering me for your wedding. It's humbling that clients invite me into their lives on such an important day. I believe in stellar customer service from start to finish, and making the best pictures possible for my clients without being intrusive (count the ninja references in my reviews!). I like authentic moments that tell the story of the bride and groom on their big day--those little intimate fleeting moments that pass so quickly. My goal is to provide pictures that will take you back to those moments any time you look at them in the years to come. I am based in Washington, Illinois (just minutes outside of Peoria) and serve the entire Central Illinois region and beyond--including Peoria, Bloomington, Champaign, Springfield, Metamora, Quad Cities, Chicago, and St. Louis.
