Starting with a detailed eye, to spot each moment; from the artistic ripples of a veil, to the precise peak of joy and applause at the ceremony. Our approach to telling the story of your special day is not with words, but with carefully captured moments that are fleeting to the eye.

We do not want to miss a moment of one of your biggest days in your lives. From the beginning during the bridal preparations and throughout the reception, our lead photographer, Chris always immerses himself into your event, watching for the right moment to artfully document your special day.

Our approach is simple, in a humble sense, we document your event in the manner of a journalist trying to tell a story that will become history. Our emphasis is, unobtrusively, we fit ourselves into your shoes and together we create an everlasting storybook that you can connect with.

Based in Toronto, ON., Chris has been photographing portraiture and fine art until naturally evolving to photographing weddings. In the recent years, Chris has been shooting digitally and developing a proprietary process akin to a traditional darkroom, to produce photos of a fine art calibre.

Chris is a member of DWF, and has also been a photographer for CCCYC special events, and as an event photography director for various concerts and independent bands featured in Toronto. Read less

Chris was our photographer for our wedding, and we feel extremely lucky to have him as a part of the biggest day of our lives. Chris' work is very unique and he has a special ability to capture and reflect our joy in the most natural way. Chris is also very knowledgeable and he gave us a lot of advice from planning to execution. I would highly recommend Avant Documentary Photography to anyone who is looking for a photographer.

Avant provided above and beyond our needs and wants. They offered very useful advice throughout the entire year we were working with them. And needless to say, our photos came out more wonderful than we could have hoped for.

Avantdp really did a solid for us on our wedding. Chris was obviously passionate about his work and willing to experiment and do different things. He was a lot of fun and his unobtrusive style really captured the raw moments of our wedding day. He's always looking for ways to imrpove and to get a new angle. It was a pleasure working with Chris and my husband and I are really happy that he was the one that was with us on our day. :)

Chris at Avantdp has been awesome work with, he's always on time, actually early every appointment and is willing to go the extra mile for you as well (climbing, rolling around to get shots, etc).

I was referred through a friend but had a good feeling on our first meet and greet, he's not pushy salesman and lets you decide for yourself. His prices are very reasonable as well.

I would suggest visiting his website to see some more sample shots if his style suits you, but I have nothing but great things to say.

Chris is an awesome photographer. He is very professional and provides exceptional service. We got to know him through our meetings and became friends, which in return made our photo session very comfortable and natural. He is quick to respond to our questions and provide very informative answers while giving his professional opinions. Aside from photography, he has also gave us help with suggestions to other wedding related services. His work is unique and was great in capturing every moment of our day. We highly recommend Chris to anyone as he goes above and beyond anything you would ever expect.

He went above and beyond what was required by him. Thanks Chris for being our photographer for the wedding and becoming a friend.

Chris is awesome!!!! I still remember the day Johnny and I got married 1.5 years ago, Chris gave us exceptional service. His photoshooting was very professional on our big day. He was very fun, energetic, and very patient, he kept contact with me closely and always responded my questions fast. and the wedding photos turned out very beautiful and memorable.

Since my wedding day we still keep in touch. He not only treats his clients as “clients”, but also he treats us as his friends. He is definitely a great & professional photographer and a great friend. On our 1st year anniversary last September, Chris was very kind to take an anniversary photo session for us in a park, it was very special to Johnny and I, Chris listened to my ideas and also offered his professional opinions which we appreciated a lot, the photos turned out very beautiful.

Johnny and I would definitely recommend Chris to any of our friends. He is a great photographer =)
