New Orleans is a place, that for some reason I never really had visited.  And where every single person I met was just plain down to party. With half of Marybeth and Nathan’s wedding attendees coming from the area, you better believe that I was surrounded by the kindest, rowdiest, funniest group of individual personalities […]

  When other photographers write you, asking you to shoot their wedding, its easy to get a little nervous worrying that you’ll live up to their standards. When said photographers then ask you to travel 16 hours and join them in Southern Spain for a once in a lifetime experience, its easy to blackout on […]

Aguas de Villaharta Wedding in Cordoba, Spain :: Natalia + John

  So something happened a few weeks ago… something so unreal that when I found out I literally screamed like an 11-year-old battling puberty; an 11-year-old who happened to be holding a scolding hot cup of coffee.  Said coffee found it’s way straight to my lap after my body suddenly convulsed upon reading that I […]

Rangefinder Magazine’s 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography 2017

  Talk about a wild wedding day where the entire family… scratch that, the entire neighborhood comes together for one heck of an event! I should back up to begin with the location.  One in which I never knew existed. James’ family owns a house 3000ft above the Palm Springs/Coachella valley, within a (secret) neighborhood […]

Palm Springs Desert Mountian Wedding :: Hilary + James

  I preface with this… Bali has my soul. Just looking through these as I’m posting, gives me severe “post trip depression”. But it’s all good, the wife and I plan on moving there in a few years… right babe?? We arrive minutes before sunset in Uluwatu at the impossibly cool, cliffside Uluwatu Surf Villas… […]

Left My Heart in Bali

  Anna, a genuine mermaid and John, a gentlemanly secret agent, got married. There was a very cool flower crown, a mariachi band, ballerina inspired dress, we were in the Keys, smiles for days. The venue was called La Siesta Resort… the party was quite the opposite. Look…

La Siesta Islamorada Wedding Photography :: Anna + John

  Always the photographer never in the wedding… Well that’s not entirely true here.  Last month my younger brother FINALLY married the sweetest little lady on the planet… years in the making, one awesome night. With best man responsibilities on the evening’s horizon and an inner wanting to be fully present in the moment, I […]

B&W Disposable Camera Wedding Photography :: My Brother

  The story I could tell you regarding the paths these two have taken in life to finally meet in New York would be too long for words and almost too amazing to believe.  From escaping a country for freedoms we stateside take for granted, Zorik and John arrive now in Palm Springs to confess […]

Palm Springs Wedding Photography :: Zorik + John

  Well… a few people back in Florida have been asking me, “Hey Chris, why the move out west to become a California based photographer?”  Aside from the obvious reasons of adventures with my wife and epic surf… it’s what you see in these coming photographs roaming around the Joshua Tree desert. Kudos to Ben […]
