Chris Schmitt Photography is absolutely THE BEST! We hired him to do our engagement shoot, a sexy boudoir shoot, our wedding, and a 'trash the dress' shoot after the wedding. Neither my husband nor I consider ourselves to be very photogenic, but Chris really surprised us and was able to get tons of wonderful photos. The hard part is narrowing down which ones we want in our album, they're all so good! Chris listened to what we wanted and he more than delivered. He made us both feel so comfortable and we had a ton of fun on all our different shoots with him. In fact, when we were on our honeymoon, at one point my husband and I looked at each other at the exact same moment and said "I wish Chris was here to capture this!" He's so easy going you can't help but relax and enjoy yourself and the results are amazing. He's a true artist and is a master of his craft. I wouldn't even think of using anyone else.... we wanted our photos to be truly beautiful, a little more on the artistic side and we wanted some cool edgy shots and Chris totally nailed it.

One of the things at the top of our list for our wedding was to find an great photographer. When we hired Chris, we did just that. Chris also shot our engagement photos and I couldn't have pictured anything better then what was captured. He found the perfect location and made us feel so comfortable during the entire shoot. We were beyond happy with how they turned out. Now onto the wedding, I don't even know where to begin. Chris and his lovely wife Andrea showed up to the venue on the wedding day and got to work immediately. I knew instantly it was going to be magic. They are the perfect team, Andrea and the groomsmen had a blast during the "pre-wedding" stages and Chris was great to work with the girls. They both captured so many amazing candid shots that we are ecstatic about. Thank you both again for helping make our day so perfect and for the best gift of all, capturing a lifetime of memories!!

Beyond amazing photography! Chris Schmitt photography captured special moments between our family and friends so we can remember how incredible out day was. The pictures that they took of us (bride and groom) exceeded our expectations by a million fold! They were fun and were very engaging with us and all the guests! I can't say enough how gorgeous our pictures turned out! Everyone that sees them think they came out of a magazine!

The absolute best! They made our wedding day so special and were so fun to work with.


The pictures are beautiful! Chris really helped with the timeline for the day and they even stayed the extra hour (unpaid) to get a few more shots. If that's not going above and beyond what they were asked, I don't know what is!

We hired Chris Schmitt to be our wedding photographer and it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. 

The 3 top qualities I appreciated about Chris and his team were:

1) Absolutely gorgeous, world-class photography: Chris has an amazing eye for getting just the right shot/framing, the right lighting/setting, the right expression/feeling on the subjects faces.

2) Quick delivery time: Chris delivered a sneak-peak within a few days (so you can post on social media ASAP) and our full-set of pictures within 3 weeks of my wedding! I have had friends that waited months and months for their photos.

3) Easy to work with: Chris was very professional from beginning to end. He was extremely responsive and easy to reach, either by email or phone.

He has my highest recommendation and I would be happy to work with him again.

Chris and his wife Andrea were absolutely incredible to work with!! My husband and I (fiance at the time) were unsure about doing engagement pictures because we didn't want them coming out cheesy, but we were sooo pleasantly surprised when we absolutely loved every single picture!


Chris and Andrea were so much fun to work with on our wedding day-- they made us feel so comfortable and are such a lovely couple.


Our wedding party also loved them. They both have such an artistic eye and can make any setting look stunning. We are SO happy with our wedding pictures and had the most difficult time picking out our favorites because they were all so beautifully done.


We are very thankful to have had Chris and Andrea as part of our dream wedding day!

  • Do you have hourly rates?
    Yes $550/hr for Primary Photographer $250/hr for each additional photographer
  • Will you be the primary photographer?
    It depends on our schedule and your wedding date. Chris will always be the primary photographer when available first come first serve. When Chris is not available you will be paired with another member of our team to photograph your event.
  • Can we add an extra photographer?
    Yes of course! We are happy to put a team of photographers together to meet your imaging needs. Each additional photographer is $250/hr
  • I hate having my picture taken...Help!
    If I had a dollar for every time I've heard this over the past 20+ years! HAHA! You're not awkward and it's totally normal to feel a little self conscious in front of the camera. But this is your wedding day and these photos will live on forever. Hiring the right photographer is the key to ensuring you feel and look your best in front of the camera. We help you with posing and feeling confident in front of the lens. And if you are really dreading it I recommend a practice session by booking an engagement session ahead of the wedding! We make the experience fun and most of the time you won't even know we are there!
  • Do we get the digital images?
    Yes, our standard event coverage comes with the digital files included. We will color correct the images before delivery.
  • What is your photographic style?
    For the most part I would say my shooting style has roots in photojournalism - I like to focus on capturing real moments , natural candids of friends and family having a great time throughout the day. Not everyone feels comfortable in front of a camera, so even when I pose people I like to lend a helping hand in direction by leading with prompts, not forced posing. This is also true for the family formals. We make sure to help parents and wedding party look their very best. My editing style is bold and colorful. I also love to process a few key moments from your day in Black and White for that timeless look and feel. My style has elements of film simulation with texture and warmth and my goal is to enhance and process the moments of your day as they happened naturally with a beautiful warm and gorgeous tone.
  • What is your turn around time to deliver the files?
    Engagement Photography is a fast 1 week turn around! Wedding Day- A quick 3 week turn around is what it takes us to add the love and finishing edits to your gallery to ensure each and every photos looks amazing. We always try to do a sneak peek the week after your wedding day too!
  • Do you also provide event Videography
    Yes we offer several options. More info here
  • Can I make additional editing requests?
    The images featured in your gallery undergo light retouching and color/tone editing. The adjustments in tone and color reflect my distinctive artistic preference, and once delivered, they remain unaltered to maintain an accurate representation of my published work. Should you desire additional fine retouching, such as enhancements to hair, skin, background, or other alterations, these requests can be accommodated for an extra fee of $20 per image.
  • How long is our online gallery available?
    3 months to 1 year depending on your package. You will be able to download all the photos from the day we send you them and then continue to have access for the remaining 3 months- 1 year.
  • Do you offer Wedding albums?
    Yes we are a full service studio and design beautiful wedding album in several different popular styles. Our Albums page is here for more info.
