12 Years of Receiving WeddingWire’s Couples’ Choice Award!

FEELING VERY GRATEFUL TO WIN THE WEDDINGWIRE COUPLES’ CHOICE AWARD FOR 2023!

I take pride in having built my business on artistic excellence. I’ve always been determined to be the best photographer I can be. The wheels of my mind are constantly turning with ideas on how I can create richer photos for my clients.

I’m going to be honest: the pandemic rocked me and my business to its core. For months I didn’t focus on photography or art. I was home, not behind the camera, and all I could do was keep in communication with my wedding clients, be a sounding board for them, offer my expertise and a shoulder to lean on in the uncertain time.

Through this shift, my relationship with my business was totally transformed. Instead of measuring my worth on my art or achievements, I found satisfaction in making deeper relationships with my clients.

So, receiving WeddingWire’s Couples’ Choice Award for 2023 is extra important to me.

WINNERS OF THIS AWARD ARE SELECTED BASED ON 5-STAR CLIENT REVIEWS AND HEARTFELT TESTIMONIALS.

And while it’s always amazing to hear that my clients love their pictures, it’s even more meaningful to hear a client reflect about the way we made pictures together.

A lot of the feedback I’ve received from my clients in the past few years mentions things like patiencekindness, and calmness. These are some of my biggest core values as a person, a wedding photographer, and a business owner.

That is what put the biggest smile on my face when I heard this year’s WeddingWire news.

“Christopher and his team are incredible. Not only did they make us feel calm and confident on our wedding day, but Christopher was also excellent about routinely communicating with us the whole year leading up to our wedding. Christopher is thoughtful, creative, and kind. The pictures are gorgeous. He captured our wedding beyond anything we could have imagined. We are so thankful we chose Christopher as our photographer and videographer for our wedding!”

– Margaret, Bride

“Christopher was amazing to work with. He was invested in us as individuals and did an amazing job keeping us at ease– even during the chaos of a wedding. It’s evident that he genuinely cares about his clients. Not to mention, the quality of his pictures are amazing. It has been my experience that he avoids trends and takes and edits timeless photos. Our experience working with Christopher was one of comfort. We would recommend him to anyone.”

“Christopher and his team were a dream to work with!! They did both photo and video for my husband and I on our wedding in October. Not only was Christopher extremely responsive during our planning process (always quick to jump on a call or send an email helping us with any questions we had), he worked with us to make ALL of our visions come true. On the day of, his team was not only early, but they also were enthusiastic and ready to go. They scoped out spots to make portraits ahead of time since they had not been to the venue before, and they made all of our portraits fun and easy– we even finished them ahead of schedule! They were not invasive or pushy in their process, but instead gave suggestions and helpful directions to ensure our pictures turned out beautifully without putting too much pressure on us to do things out of our comfort zones. During the party, it was as if they weren’t there! We could see from cell phone footage after the fact that they were always around us, but as far as we were concerned, they were out of our faces, allowing us enjoy the party, which was a huge priority for us. I cannot thank them enough for making our day stress-free and adding to the fun. HIRE THEM!!!!!!!”

“Christopher was a pleasure to work with. From the start of our planning with him, he was nothing but professional and easy to work with. He brings a personal touch that we didn’t see with other photographers we were originally considering. We did an engagement shoot together and it really helped us feel comfortable with Christopher (not to mention good practice for two people who don’t like being in front of camera)! The wedding planning was seamless – just a quick call to go over the details, and he had what he needed. It also helped that he’s extremely familiar with the Berkshires and the venues/vendors in the area. He is truly an expert and was able to coordinate with our event/catering company with help from prior experience. If you are having a wedding in the Berkshires, you’d be hard pressed to find someone more plugged into the area than him. The wedding day was perfect. Christopher and his second photographer Sadie were a joy to work with. They knew exactly where to be and made our family portraits easy, which can be tricky with larger families, or just many different personalities. Finally… the photos themselves. They are truly perfect, capturing the beauty of the venue and everyone looking their best. The portraits were excellent, but the candids and little moments that you really want to capture are what really stood out. These are photos that we will have for a lifetime, and we cannot thank him enough for that. Do yourself a favor and work with Christopher!”
