My photography is straight forward. No photoshop gimics or cheesy poses. I let the day unfold and capture great images of you, your family and guests. The setting you get married in is important to you and its one of the things I like to capture when photographing your wedding.

Chris and his assistant, LeAnn, did an amazing job on our wedding and engagement photos. We received over 700 pictures for our wedding, and they also created a slideshow with music you select with the most important moments of the night.

He was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Chris helped keep the wedding schedule moving forward and he was very flexible with all the last minute wedding changes we had to make.

Chris is OUTSTANDING! Lets start with the fact that when he took our engagement photos he had them edited, and sent to us in under 24 hours!! Not only that, but they were incredible shots. We actually had people ask if we were the people that came with the picture frame - that's how good these were. And then, there was our wedding. Chris was incredible communicative, completely on top of things, always on time, a VERY calming presence, and so incredible in his interactions with us, our family, and friends that it was like an old friend happened to be helping out as our photographer. Our wedding photos were impeccable. People have said that his photos should be used as ads in bridal magazines and I have to say, I agree! Chris gets fantastic staged photos, but he shines at the candids (which I was never much of a fan of until Chris - but now, I LOVE THEM!). They are some of my favorite most cherished shots, and each and every one of them is better than the last. Chris could NOT be better. Not only is he a fabulous photographer, but he's a great person to work with who very quickly becomes a friend! I cannot recommend him enough!

Chris was an absolute delight to work with. Throughout the entire planning process, he was very responsive, helpful, professional and fun to work with. On our actual wedding day, Chris and LeAnn fit right in--I hardly noticed they were around (in a good way!) They let the day unfold naturally and captured all of the special aspects of our wedding. We just received our video and photos and were blown away at what an outstanding job Chris did. He captured the emotion and feeling evoked throughout the day. I would highly recommend working with Chris.

We absolutely LOVED Chris and LeAnn. They were totally our style (laid back, easy-going) yet very professional. He made our wedding day exciting and relaxing, documenting everything from the wedding party goofing around on the beach and the groomsmen jumping over me off the sand dunes, to my now-husband and I walking through the woods soaking in the day. AND...he takes AMAZING photos! The angles and framing of the pictures are thoughtful and capture the moment so well. Of all the decisions to make in wedding planning, let this be a simple one to make...choose Chris Van Winkle Photography.

To say they were excellent would be a drastic understatement, and the feeling was mutually shared by all the wedding party and guests. From the start, their flexible and happy nature made it easy to relax in from of the camera. They utilized every second of the time they were there, without it feeling demanding or rushed. I did a fair share of research on different shots I wanted to make sure to get, and not only did they comply, but they also did numerous beautiful shots I couldn’t have even dreamed of! They were professional at all times, clearly practiced in their field, and I would recommend them to absolutely anyone.

They were awesome! Got back to us in emails and phone calls right away, had our finished pictures back to us in 3 weeks (which is amazingly fast). They were both cool and easy going. Pictures turned out great, and the video they made from our photos was the coolest thing we've ever seen. They got all the shots we asked for and a lot of really good candid pics as well. They were also very reasonably priced. I highly recommend choosing them for whatever occasion you are having.

From the moment we met Chris we were extremely pleased. Being out of state was not easy for us, but Chris was very professional and at the same time he cared like a friend, putting our minds at ease. He made us feel comfortable starting at the engagement session, all the way through to our wedding day. Chris and LeeAnn are extremely good at what they do and they enjoy doing it. Not only were we pleased, our guests raved about them as well. He captured the best day of our lives with tons of pictures and an amazing video! Chris does everything to accommodate the bride and groom. He never makes you feel awkward or puts you into any uncomfortable poses. He just goes with the flow, and fits right in with the party! Our pictures and video came out perfect, and we are so glad we found Chris. If you're looking for very talented photographer, we highly recommend Chris Van Winkle Photography!!

Chris and LeAnn were absolutely amazing!! They were professional, fun, and everything you would want in a wedding photographer. They captured every moment, and made sure that all of our guests felt comfortable. They were so flexible and easy going, but provided direction when we needed it. Chris understood the style we wanted and executed it perfectly. We are beyond happy with our pictures and have received so many compliments on them, as well as how much everyone liked our photographer. We will most definitely be recommending Chris Van Winkle Photography to anyone that asks. Thanks so much Chris and LeAnn!!
