Congratulations on your engagement! It’s a very exciting time for you right now, and you have a lot of work ahead of you. One of the most important decisions you will have to make is choosing a wedding photographer.

Today’s bride and groom have access to many photographers, and it’s important to find a photographer whose style you like, and someone who will do everything they can to make sure your photography is one thing you won’t have to worry about on your wedding day.

When you hire Chris Diset Photography, we start working long before your wedding day. We contact other wedding services to find out about the day’s events and design our photography to fit a timeline that is suitable for all involved. This includes the ceremony and reception venues. And if it is a venue that we haven’t shot before, we will tour the facilities days before your wedding.

You may also have an engagement shoot before your wedding day. This is a great way for you to get to know your photographer, and for your photographer to get to know you. It will also supply the images that may be used in your guest signature album.

Be assured that Chris Diset Photography arrives at your wedding with a plan. There is a specific set of creative shots that will always be taken, so you can be sure that your images will tell a story from beginning to end. In between those shots is where we separate ourselves from other photographers. It’s the moments. It’s the smiles, emotions, reactions, and interactions of everyone that you might miss. Those are the images that you will look at in 20 years, remembering how good you felt and how much fun you had on your wedding day.

Chris Diset Photography uses only the best, professional grade equipment and carries extra equipment so if there is a mechanical failure, we won’t even miss a picture.
We are still not done even after your last dance – that’s when the editing process begins. Back in the studio, your images are uploaded for editing, and copies of the originals are stored on an external hard drive, as well as an offsite location. Color and contrast adjustments will be applied as needed, images may be cropped, and special treatments like black and white conversions, may be applied to some images.

Once the editing is complete, your high-resolution images will be burned to a DVD that will be sent to you. You will have ownership of these images for printing and distribution to friends and family. Copies of your images are also stored at the studio for 1 year, in case you require additional copies.

Once you have received your disk, usually 2-3 weeks after your wedding, you will also be able to visit a password-protected website where you can view, order, and share these images electronically with anyone you choose.

Your package may also include a flush mount leather bound wedding album, and you can choose the images to be included, or you can have Chris Diset Photography choose the images that best tell the story of your special day.

Also available for your wedding package are enlargements and custom framing, parent albums, press printed photo books, gallery wraps, and digital slideshows.

We hope this little introduction has answered some of the questions you may have about our services, and we would love to meet with you to further discuss your wedding. Read less

Chris and his assistants captured all the moments I'd hoped for and more.... Since my wedding wasn't during high wedding season, he was willing to negotiate with me on price which was a big help for us. Before the wedding when things weren't running on schedule, Chris' assistant was compassionate, kind, and patient with me as I hurried to get ready. The pictures came out fabulous and Chris sent them to me on USB flash drive. He took so many wonderful pictures and was very professional and instructive at posing us for the best shots. I would highly recommend Chris Diset Photography!

I was really impressed with Chris & Debra at Chris Diset Photography. They were more than willing to shoot our engagement pics in an outdoor, crowded, hot location for roughly 3 hours; and our photos ended up great! On our wedding day, they were on time, professional, and gave us a TON of pictures. Chris also knew I don't like anything over-edited and that I wanted a large selection of pictures, and I was impressed with the image quality as nothing looked like it had been edited - it all looked natural! I would definitely recommend Chris to anyone who is looking for photography for any occasion.

Chris Diset is awesome! He is professional, friendly and definitely an artist. When we first met Chris, my husband and I found him very comfortable to talk to. It was very easy to work with him, and you can feel his enthusiasm for his work. Our engagement photos were amazing and we are still getting comments on how beautiful they are. On our wedding day, we had a team of three with Chris leading the team. They were prompt and started immediately in capturing all the details and every single moment. They really did a wonderful job documenting our special day. We recently received our wedding photos and they are stunning. Chris is quick with getting the photos out. We have a lot of friends that have gotten married and it took such a long time for them to get their photos. We highly recommend him.

Chris photographed my wedding last Oct. 4, 2013 and he did such an amazing job!! I am so happy I reached out to him! He replied to my email almost immediately. He was so easy to work with! He put both myself and my hubby at ease at our initial meeting. His photographs are photojournalistic style. He arrived early at our wedding site and captured all the photos listed on the photo list that I sent him. His attention to detail was impeccable! He was such a stealth photographer during the ceremony that I was amazed at the photos he took. He even suggested that we take photos after everyone left of just my hubby and I (eventhough it was well after the allotted time). I got my photos approximately 4 weeks after the event. The photos looked fabulous! I wholeheartedly recommend him to any bride looking for a photographer to capture the best day of her life!

OMG CHRIS! My pictures are stunning! Everything I wanted to remember is captured in these pictures. The smiles, the love and happiness, the beauty of the venue and the joy of being married. As a bride, the wedding day goes by so fast, but looking back at these pictures slows it all down and lets me re-live the moments that will stay with me forever. Chris really takes his work seriously, but still allows you to have fun on your big day, and makes sure that you can really smile and enoy yourself. He was so patient with my family and the wedding party, and he made sure to get all of the detailes that we put so much time and effort into. Even when other people were taking pictures of us while he was taking pictures, he made sure to remind us that we were paying him to do this, and to get any pictures we wanted. So if my Husbands uncle wanted a picture with us, Chris would take it for him on the professional camera. We had such a good experience with Chris.

What can I say? Chris was absolutely incredible. I remember telling Chris "I don't know much about poses and photographs so please take over" lol! and that's exactly what he did! He made me feel at ease as I saw him taking all sorts of pictures and leading us with different poses and ideas. He is so outgoing and professional. He was fun and flexible when taking pictures. He made me feel comfortable right from the start and always made himself available throughout the process. His pictures from his website look absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to see mine. Excellent job to Chris and his assistant! Very satisfied bride :)

We found Chris through a referral from another vendor, and could not have been happier with his services. He was so professional from the get go. His prices were reasonable, and he was more than accommodating to my fiancee and I.
We wanted to do our engagement photos at two different locations, one being Disneyland (which is where we got engaged) and he was more than willing to do that with us. He even came to the rehearsal dinner and took photos there.
The fact that these photos are forever is something that you really need to focus on when planning your big day. Chris was more than we could have ever dreamed of, and our photos are exquisite.
Look no farther ... Chris Diset Photography is the only way to go for your big day!

Chris Diset Photography shot our wedding back in July. Not only are they professional, they are also fun to be around. I had been a groomsman three times prior to my wedding. Every photographer that I dealt with in those weddings was pushy and only worried about getting their job done. Chris Diset Photography takes their time and makes sure that they get the shots that you want without speeding things up.

Chris Diset met with my wife and I several times before the wedding. He agreed to meet with us at our location a couple weeks prior. He walked around with us, mapping out the shots that we wanted and the ideas that he had. He showed up to our wedding with a plan, and it was executed very well.

The albums produced by Chris Diset Photography were amazing. Chris sent us his version of how the albums should look, but allowed us to make as many changes as we wanted. We went back and forth a couple times and ended up with the perfect product.

Think of Chris Diset Photography whenever you need professional photos done. Not only do they take gorgeous pictures, you will have fun while they’re taking them.

He was in and out it was like you didn't know he was there. He did out engagement shoot as well as our ceremony and reception. His helpers were great and funny. We loved him!

Do yourselves a favor, and go with Chris Diset photography. Our pictures are so incredibly gorgeous that everyone is raving about his work. He and his assistant Joelle were so helpful and attentive on the day of the wedding, and they really are extremely talented artists. We can't imagine having another photographer. We were planning our wedding from DC, so we only spoke to photographers via phone. My husband shopped around a lot, and our personalities just clicked with Chris. I can't say enough about how great they were on the day of the wedding. My friends from the east coast are sad that they can't find a photographer like this! Take advantage of your location and get Chris Diset Photography to photograph your location!

I can't even begin to describe how happy my husband and I are with Chris's work! He did our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos and surpassed or expectations in the quality and talent that he delivered!! He was fun to work with gave us more photos than we could have dreamed of, caught every special moment and then some, and truly did an excellent job. We interviewed several photographers and checked references as well. Chris not only has the best body of work, but all his references said the same thing...AMAZING, and now I can confidently agree with that! Thanks Chris for giving Chad and I such amazing photos that we'll cherish forever!

Chris is an amazing photographer! He really tries to get to know you..he emailed my husband and I a getting to know you questionnaire before we had our first meeting to get an idea of our personalities..which I loved! I fell in love with his photos after viewing his website, and then once I talked to him on the phone, and finally met with him in person, it was a done deal! He is very passionate about what he does and I found that quite refreshing! So, if you want to get great photos that you will love for a lifetime, definitely check out Chris Diset Photography! You will not regret that you did!

Chris was amazing! When he went to meet him we just clicked immediately and knew that he would be perfect to photograph our wedding. He was always willing to answer our questions and was able to offer his expertise so we could get the most out of our day. He did such a good job at the wedding that I did not even realize he was there, but he was able to capture some of the best moments which I will now remember forever. Everyone that has seen our photos asked who did them and just raves about how good they all turned out. I definitely recommend him!

Chris shot our engagement session and wedding, and we could not be any happier with the results!

Aside from his most obvious qualification, talent, he and his assistant were professional, on-time, and very easy to work with. Most people really don't have that much experience being in front of a camera, but Chris' easy-going style made it feel natural.

My wife and I went through a very extensive photographer search, and Chris was far and above the best choice. There are a lot of photographers out there that are difficult to talk to, difficult to work with, and believe me, on your big day you want the guy/gal to be virtually invisible. Chris put up with my neurotic camera-geekery prior to the shoots, and was patient in dealing with our groom/bride-zillaness :)

Beyond the personal touch, he's just such a talented photographer -- just look at the samples of his work. His equipment is top-notch, but even top-of-the-line equipment is pointless in the hands of an amateur -- Chris is a pro in every sense of the word.

He was quick in turning-around our work (everybody has heard horror stories of photographers taking months or even a year in getting your pictures back to you), and accommodated my quirkiest requests.

One bit of advice: Of all things wedding-related, **don't skimp on your photographer**. The day will be a blur, and your most treasured memories will be in the form of your pictures. You won't care if your invitations are a bit cheaper, or your ring is a little smaller -- hire someone like Chris Diset and your memories will be in good hands -- ours were.

(I know I sound like a shill here, and granted, most people have only one experience with a wedding photographer -- either horrifying or wonderful -- but my experience was a wholly positive one.)

EDIT: feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our experience with Chris!

Chris was my wedding photographer and I couldn't have asked for more. His pricing is excellent
and he was very easy to contact. We were able to talk before the wedding about my expectations and what I wanted out of my day. I got everything and more! Chris took so many pictures and we got so many excellent pictures. He also was very friendly! However what was the best part was Chris was professional and nobody ever knew he was there. He did a great job during the ceremony with being very "hidden" but with great shots. If you're looking for someone who is professional, fun, will listen to what you need and is also very modern then Chris is just the photographer for you!

My Wedding Planner and I met with Chris and right away he worked with us. He answered all questions I had and gave us the run down on what to expect. He was very flexible when we had told him what we were looking for. He introduced us to one of his assistants at that time Shauna Couri, who took our pictures!! She did amazing work and everyone was pleased. I would recommend Chris and/or Shauna.

I'm a big fan of Chris Diset. His work speaks for itself. He is professional and at the same time, a lot of fun. He goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable, especially if you're anything like my husband and me, who don't like having our pictures taken. He's got a lot of great ideas. Also, my husband and I were surprised to find that during our vendor search, many of them wouldn't budge on prices and packages. Chris worked with us to pick the package that worked the best for us and our budget. In other words: he's pretty great.

Chris Diset and his associates were such a pleasure to have as the photographers for my wedding. They were so personable and easy to work with. Upon my initial consultation with Chris, we had such a connection, I felt as if we had known one another for years. I knew he was the photographer for us. The night before the wedding, I had asked him to come earlier than originally planned and he responded immediately that he would be there and only needed to know what time I would like him there. And there he was bright and early the next morning. After the wedding, he posted our proofs before my husband and I even returned from our honeymoon. His turn-around time was completely unexpected and impressive. Not to mention how beautiful the images all are. He definitely is a talented photographer and I am so glad that we available for our date. You really can not beat his value either. It was worth every penny. I can not wait to get our album. But unlike others, he is actually waiting on us to select some of our favorite photos for the album and not us on him. If you are looking for a wedding day that runs smoothly without any problems, I highly recommend Christ Diset Photography. The only thing I would have changed was that I would have hired him for the entire night.
