Hi, I'm Chris.

... and I take pictures. I am a coffee junkie and a photography addict. I am a hybrid photographer, capturing both photographs and video simultaneously as one person. That sounds like a lot of work, and before you ask, yes it is!

More than that I am a storyteller. I have a passion for photography and cinema, and a degree in photojournalism from the University of Florida. MY mission is to provide you with the highest quality digital media that I can to best tell your story.

I look forward to telling your story.

The Camera

Something magical happens whenever I pick up a camera. I don't really know how to explain it, but the feeling that I get is surreal. The camera is this amazing tool that opens doors and allows us access to people, places and moments that we would never otherwise see. Often times it takes us places that we could never go without it and somehow legitimizes us and gives a purpose to be there. To document and to tell a story, even if the story is personal and for the photographer's eyes only. I cant even begin to express my gratitude for all of the people that I have met, the places I have gone and the moments that I have witnessed because of my camera.


Michelle and Michaell

“Chris is absolutely amazing!! He did our engagement pictures as well as our wedding pictures. He not only takes breathtaking pictures, but is genuinely honest. Going through our online gallery of pictures, we have a roller coaster of emotions because he captured beautiful candid moments. Years to come, we will be able to remember our magical wedding day, through the beautiful pictures that he took. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Chris!!”
