Chris Schmitt Photography is an award winning studio based in Thousand Oaks, CA. Chris and Andrea are a husband and wife team who just celebrated their 11th year anniversary this year in Maui.

They are best known for creating stunning images that have that extra 'WoW' factor and for capturing real moments and fun candids of friends and family on wedding day. "We actually do things a little different from most! For instance, for the getting ready part of wedding day, you'll usually find Andrea hanging with the guys getting them to do fun and often off the wall things while Chris is photographing the important details and having fun getting 'artsy' with the dress hanging, jewelry, bouquets and capturing candids with the girls.

Together it's a great balance... and in the end our clients are left with an awesome blend of styes that tell the complete story of their wedding day."

Chris and Andrea love to travel and have had the pleasure of photographing destination weddings all over the world including Australia, Europe, Mexico,the Carribean and Hawaii. Their work has been published and featured in numerous wedding magazines,wedding blogs and websites and T.V. shows including the 'Today Show' and 'For Better or For Worse'.

They also own a successful portrait studio in Moorpark where they specialize in boudoir and fashion photography.



Chris, Andrea, Sawyer and Siena

Chris is the best! He is so easy to work with and so fun! From the day we met him my husabnd and I knew he was the photographer for us.. He is so attentive and so flexible, he even traveled to SB for our engagement pictures! The day of the wedding was perfect. I had no care in the world knowing he would get it all done, and let me tell you he captured our day perfectly. I never even know Chris was there, he blended in and I never felt like i had a camera in my face.. I look at my engagment and wedding pictures daily and fall in love with them all over.. Do yourself a favor and give Chris a call, better yet- BOOK HIM!

I will never use anyone other than Chris Schmitt Photography for my events, and we do a lot of them! I had to pick one date for this review, but, we use them all throughout the year! The work that they do is amazing and they capture every moment and detail in a unique and creative way that seals the memories for eternity. Chris and his colleagues are professional, easy to work with, and always adored by the guests. I would recommend no other than Chris Schmitt Photography....

One of the things at the top of our list for our wedding was to find an great photographer. When we hired Chris, we did just that. Chris also shot our engagement photos and I couldn't have pictured anything better then what was captured. He found the perfect location and made us feel so comfortable during the entire shoot. We were beyond happy with how they turned out.

Now onto the wedding, I don't even know where to begin. Chris and his lovely wife Andrea showed up to the venue on the wedding day and got to work immediately. I knew instantly it was going to be magic. They are the perfect team, Andrea and the groomsmen had a blast during the "pre-wedding" stages and Chris was great to work with the girls. They both captured so many amazing candid shots that we are ecstatic about. Thank you both again for helping make our day so perfect and for the best gift of all, capturing a lifetime of memories!!

My husband and I had only one rule for our wedding photographer. No cheesy pictures. Chris totally got us. Our wedding photos are the best photos I have ever seen. Chris was able to capture the split-second moments that made our wedding unique. It's too bad he left minutes before I fell on the dance floor.
Before our wedding, I sent Chris some photos I had seen online and liked. Chris helped us recreate those photos organically, without awkward, forced posing, or comments like, "oooohh yaaaa...right there." Not to mention, Chris is super good-looking. I mean, who can look bad when a stud is taking your picture?
Chris was funny, professional, collaborative, punctual, attentive, honest, creative, friendly, and patient. He was also able to answer my mom's 4589745089548094578754 questions, half of which were questions he had already answered...7 times.
If you are looking for a photographer who can make all your dreams come true, look no further. Chris Schmitt is obviously the best.

Chris Schmitt photography is absolutely THE BEST! We hired him to do our engagement shoot, a sexy boudoir shoot, our wedding, and a 'trash the dress' shoot after the wedding. Neither my husband nor I consider ourselves to be very photogenic, but Chris really surprised us and was able to get tons of wonderful photos. The hard part is narrowing down which ones we want in our album, they're all so good!

Chris listened to what we wanted and he more than delivered. He made us both feel so comfortable and we had a ton of fun on all our different shoots with him. In fact, when we were on our honeymoon, at one point my husband and I looked at each other at the exact same moment and said "I wish Chris was here to capture this!"

He's so easy going you can't help but relax and enjoy yourself and the results are amazing. He's a true artist and is a master of his craft. I wouldn't even think of using anyone else.... we wanted our photos to be truly beautiful, a little more on the artistic side and we wanted some cool edgy shots and Chris totally nailed it.

Chris Schmitt Photography is definitely the way to go! There were so many great shots to choose from, it took forever selecting the ones we wanted for our album and portraits.
