Your wedding is your story, and your wedding photos are the storybook you'll look back on for the rest of your life together. By choosing Chris Henry Photo, you'll choose to bring over 16 years of photographic storytelling experience to your special date, pulling from a mix of professional photojournalism experience and extensive studio portraiture.
As a professional photographer for almost 2 decades, shooting for newspapers and magazines in the mid-atlantic, I have taken home awards from Nikon, Photographer's Forum Magazine, the ACP, and Agfa Film.
Photography is the study of light; and this is where I take a different path in my work. I spend the week shooting corporate events, CD covers, editorial assignments, and sporting events for national and international publications. Understanding light is second nature, capturing light is old hat. I hold 4 degrees from Maryland colleges, including a BA in Photographic Imaging from Towson University, and an MA from the University of Baltimore Graduate School.
Your wedding is your story, tell it the way you want it to be told. I bring the insight of a trained photojournalist to the world of wedding photography, offering one of a kind portfolios and telling your story through a thousand images.

Chris did an excellent job with my wedding on 10/10/10. The whole process of setting up the photographer was made very easy and everything he did turned out perfect. He showed up on the day of the wedding early, he had a wonderful assistant and both of them made taking the pictures great without being intrusive and pushy. They took mostly candid shots, with a few ones that we specified of the family. The entire day was a lot of fun and we now have wonderful pictures to reflect back on. His prices are probably one of the best in Baltimore and believe me he is well worth every penny. I highly recommend Chris to anyone for any event.

Chris & his assistant did a wonderful job! All our guest raved about how fantastic our photographers were and we were so impressed how they were able to be there without us knowing they were there. We could not believe the amount of pictures that were taken, we had such a hard time choosing our favorites because there were so many wonderful ones to choose from. Looking back at my pictures I am able to relive every special moment because Chris captured them all. As I look though the images I found myself constantly saying "I'm so glad he got a picture of that". They were extremely professional, they were on time, prepared, did there job & promptly edited and published our images. He is extremely affordable and I felt very comfortable working with him. I have no regrets with using his services and if there is ever an occassion where I am in need of a professional photographer I will not hesitate to call him.

Although he was originally difficult to find online, I am so glad I stumbled upon his website. Chris Henry did an amazing job with our wedding photos. On the day-of he was professional and creative and we have beautiful images to commemorate our day. We were married on Halloween and Chris took the date into account while photographing, suggesting poses and providing us with unique shots. Our edited images were quickly posted on line and I already have my photos on cd, while friends married months ago are still waiting for their pictures. Chris' prices were extremely reasonable and he was willing to work within our limited budget. We are extremely pleased with the end results.

Chris did a fantastic job at our wedding! TThe pictures turned our great and he recreated any poses that we found and wanted to do for our wedding day. We really liked the pictures he took of the bands that he photographed so we were able to do some fun poses with the groomsmen. He wasn't easy to find since he didnt heavily advertise for weddings like other photographers but I am sure glad we did. He has many package options that fits any budget and he is every willing to do a custom package based on your wants and desires. My guests were impressed by his work and kept asking us where we found him. He had three printers going so guests could take pictures of the wedding day home with them. Can't wait to get our albums and see the rest of our photos online. Thanks Chris!

Chris did an amazing job at our wedding! The pictures turned out beautifully, and he quickly posted pictures on his website (a very convenient feature) and mailed out our CD in record time! I would definitely recommend him to other brides who are looking for great photography at an awesome price. He has so many package options that he fits basically every budget. My guests were impressed by his work and couldn't wait until he posted pictures online. He was very flexible in the type of photos that I wanted, we had a great mix of traditional shots, and a lot of pictures taken in the photojournalism/candid style.
