I LOVE my wedding photos, and I'm so happy! I am the happy bride from my (Sunday) Wedding, July 12, 2015.

I had researched photographers online, for many months, and by far Chris McGuire's photos stood out to me. (I just had to have his talent, and I'm so glad he was available for our wedding date).
To capture a "once in a lifetime" day, you want nothing more than someone that you feel at ease with. To surround yourself with such an easy going, and professional guy, with great skills, is priceless.
Chris is a super sweet guy, so easy to work with on the day of, and very prompt responding via email.
I can't gush enough. Chris is great.

I have a Happy Husband too, he is happy with the photos, and happy that I'm happy.

I have a passion for photography, so I spent a lot of time scouring the internet and interviewing potential wedding photographers to find the right one. We decided to go with Chris McGuire Photography because his portfolio was stunning and he was very knowledgeable (and not to mention easy going), and our expectations were beyond exceeded.

I have many positive to things to say about our experience. First, his professionalism was top-notch. Chris and his assistant showed up dressed nicely in black and were extremely polite to my friends and family. He let us 'act naturally' and therefore we have so many amazing candid shots in our wedding album. When we needed to move 200+ chairs on the fly so that we could get the perfect shot, Chris and his assistant were the first ones to lend a hand. They also did SUCH a good job of capturing us in the moment at the reception - I never knew he was there! Also, he had a plethora of very expensive professional equipment strapped all over his body along with lighting equipment that he navigated around like a ninja. Impressive.

Second, the pictures are such a beautiful reflection of my memory of our wedding day. The quality is, again, top-notch. They are clean, crisp, clear, perfectly exposed, with such minor processing. Though, beyond the photos being technically nice, they tell such a true story of our day and not a single moment was missed. You can't put a price on that.

And last. Our estimated turn around time to get the photos back was 8-10 weeks, which is pretty standard from my understanding. We got ALL of the images back in less than one month!!! I was blown away. They sent us a very nice personalized disc in a custom jacket, too.

Bottom line, your wedding photos are the only thing that will allow you to relive the best day of your life. The whole thing seemed like such a blur, so I am beyond grateful to have such an exquisite record of that day in my personal history. Thank you so much Chris!

Working with Chris was fantastic - he really listened to my vision and was able to tell our story beautifully. Candid shots of our friends and family were really important to me and he executed them beautifully and able to really capture the feelings of love and the spirit of family on our wedding day. I would highly recommend working with Chris.

Chris is amazing. From the moment we first met and said hello to him to the last minutes of our wedding day, he made this experience a lifetime memory. Chris felt like a long time family friend and not just someone we hired to take photos. When we ran into many unexpected events out of our control from last minute venue changes to family emergencies and Chris was always more than willing to make things work for us with no hesitation at all. His communication, professionalism, EVERYTHING was 100000%. He exceeded our expectations way above and beyond. Our engagement photos and wedding photos are beautiful. His work is one of a kind. We look forward to working with Chris when we start a family to take our family photos and more! We recommend him to EVERYONE we know! We truly love Chris and his work. We're so grateful to have met him and can't wait to work with him again in the future. Chris is the man, hands down! You won't be disappointed!! - Nika + Russell Israels

I contracted Chris McGuire about 7 months prior to my wedding. He responded to my inquiry within 4 hours, and immediately included his price list and package options. He made sure to follow up with me within the upcoming days asking if I had any questions, and was more than willing to work with us and our budget.

During the planning process he sends very helpful planning sheets with examples of day-of schedules so you have a clue on how much time to allot to pictures.

We did not do an engagement session, so the first time meeting Chris was the day-of. He was open to Facetiming two weeks before the wedding just to go over some details and get to know each other.

The day of he was incredible. He showed up an hour early just to scope out the location. I did not have a first look spot picked out and he sought this out for me and coordinated the whole thing. He made sure we stayed on schedule without being overbearing at all. Was very professional, easy going, and courteous the entire day. He was even open to showing us some of his shots throughout the day - which some photographers do not do.

He brings an assistant who is primarily there for lighting. I've been in other weddings and no professional lighting or reflectors are used. Chris used these on 90% of this photos, and you can tell the difference.

He said his usual turnaround time for edits is 8-10 weeks. We had ours back in 4. It included over 700 shots. They were AMAZING! Better than I was ever expecting - and I had high expectations. He didn't miss one shot that I was hoping to get, and did an impeccable job at capturing our special day. I am so happy we chose Chris as our photographer, and hope that many other couples do the same!

The Absolute BEST!!!

After looking through some of the photos that Chris had done of weddings in our area, I knew that we had to have him photograph our wedding! Being a perfectionist myself, I wouldn’t have been happy with anything less than the best. Chris exceeded any expectation that I could have ever had for our photos and gave us hundreds of images that allow us to relive our special day over and over.

Chris was extremely professional and was always at the right place at the right time. There was not a special shot or moment that was not captured. He made everyone at ease and made the process of taking thousands of photos a fun part of our wedding day. He has a great eye for capturing the perfect shot and unique angle. He was even open to trying my ideas for some photos and made a special point of covering everything we had talked about.

We received our photos less than 3 weeks after the wedding, with a sneak peak just 4 days after!! Chris was prompt, professional, and an overall joy to work with! If you want the best, you have to go with Chris!

My husband and I are so happy that we chose Chris McGuire to be our wedding photographer! We can't imagine a better person to have captured all of our special memories from the day. He was so invested in making sure that he knew about all the details of the day, so that he would be ready to take pictures of everything. He was so easy to work with and made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. Even my husband, who doesn't always love his picture being taken, often forgot that he was being photographed and we ended up with some of the most amazing pictures!!

We live out of state so Chris was excellent at meeting us the first time over Skype to introduce himself. He also talked to us many times on the phone during the planning process, about not only our wedding photography, but also weddings in general. He was able to give us advice about other local vendors that he would recommend and how the timeline of the day should go. He was able to provide us with so many extra tips and pieces of advice!

He also was amazing at getting the pictures back to us sooner that we would have thought possible. We got a few sample pictures just a few days into our honeymoon and got the rest about 5 weeks later! We couldn't be happier with how they turned out. We absolutely love our pictures and especially love how he always captured the memories in a natural way, with nothing ever seeming too posed. We plan to print up a ton of them and also give some pictures away as gifts. He also makes amazing photo album keepsakes of the day and we can't wait to get one of those either!

Overall, we couldn't have been more happy with our decision to use Chris McGuire as our wedding photographer! We loved working with him and would strongly recommend him to any other couples looking for the best wedding photographer around!

Chris was an amazing photographer! He did both our engagement and wedding photos and they both turned out beautifully. I am still struggling to decide which ones to have printed because there are so many great choices. Having Chris as our photographer was one of my best wedding decisions I made. He made our day so easy and in the days leading up to it. Thanks Chris for your hard work and for capturing our beautiful (somewhat windy) day!
