Chris Ware’s clean and sophisticated wedding photography arises from his background as both an environmental photographer and a photo-journalist. Chris’s work has appeared in the New York Times, Sports Illustrated, ESPN, Parade and Westchester Magazine. He is an award-winning photo-journalist, with a master’s degree in photography from Syracuse University.

Photo-journalism skills are critical in wedding photography because Chris uses those professional skills to capture genuine candid moments, the truth of the day in a non-intrusive way. Photographs emerge of people enjoying a special day, a day no one will forget.

Chris learned some of these skills as a photographer with the U.S. Navy and his current position as a photojournalist for the News Time in Danbury, CT. Since Chris works as a photographer on a daily basis, it helps train him to be ready when the moment arises. They’re here and then they’re gone forever.

That natural approach to photography is what Chris calls environmental portraiture. He sees the couple and their family in a real setting, capturing true moments. That warmth will lead to a collection of candid moments captured one after another to document a warm and special day.

Chris photographs only 20 weddings a year making each one unique. Chris’s other work, editorial and commercial photography, form an encompassing circle with his wedding photography so that each aspect of the work improves the others. Read less

From the first time we met with Chris, we knew we had made the right decision. He took the time to get to know us, and what we wanted. The day of our wedding, Chris was just amazing. He acted very professional, and at the same time acted like he really cared about our wedding and the memories we would have. From the silly things, like reminding me to pick up my dress while walking on the grass so it wouldn’t get stained, to going out of his way to get just the right pictures of our one ring bearer and four flower girls (ages 1-5, not an easy task!), Chris was just amazing! But words can’t describe just how impressed everyone was once we got out pictures, just breathtaking! We did pictures before our ceremony at a rock cliff overlooking the ocean, as well as at an old lighthouse. These pictures far exceeded our expectations, and everyone that has seen them has commented on just how great they are. We can’t thank Chris enough for all of the effort he put into giving us pictures that truly captured our wedding day.

Chris was absolutely outstanding to work with! I knew as soon as I met with him that I wanted him to photograph our day. Leading up to the wedding, he was always quick to respond and extremely helpful with anything I asked of him. He has such a pleasant demeanor and is so easy to work with. He is also extremely prompt. I have been able to view my online gallery less than 2 weeks after my wedding.He is a true professional.
In terms of his skill level, I couldn't be happier with the work he has done for us.Chris has an amazing eye for detail. Many guests remarked that they were surprised by some of the images he captured because he was so unobtrusive that they didn't even realize he was around!
He captured all the amazing memories of our day from the smallest details to the largest ones. He took such care to ensure that our photographs would be something we could always cherish and he did not disappoint! Chris really was a great find and I feel lucky that I came across him! I am a huge fan and would highly recommend him.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Chris! From the moment my fiance and I met him, we knew he was the photographer we wanted to work with. His calm, pleasant personality is exactly what you want in a wedding photographer. Throughout the planning process he was responsive and organized and on the day of the wedding he really shined. He remained calm and focused amidst the craziness of our wedding and his pictures were outstanding. He managed to capture all of the sweet little moments of our wedding and his photos clearly show the emotion of the day. Many guests told me after the wedding how much they liked working with him. My mother even told me that she didn't even notice he was there during the reception, which is exactly the way we wanted it to be! Chris is my number one favorite vendor from my wedding and I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat. I want to get married again so that I can hire Chris as my photographer.

We really can’t say enough about what an amazing job Chris did photographing our wedding! His work is truly beautiful, and he is so nice and easy to get along with, which is very important considering you basically spend your entire wedding day with your photographer. From our first meeting through the end of our reception Chris was a consummate professional. Chris was completely unobtrusive at our wedding, we hardly noticed him most of the time but based on our pictures he was everywhere! We even had a couple people in our wedding party tell us they wish thee knew about Chris before their weddings because they definitely would have hired him. We’ve gotten countless compliments on our pictures. Chris captured our day perfectly, every time we look at our pictures it's like we get to relive the whole day. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. We can't wait to have another event for Chris to photograph!

Chris is fantastic! Not only does he have an amazing eye for still images, he has a flair for capturing the spirit of the event as well. We were thrilled with the way our pictures came out--he found all the right moments. We received both color and black-and-white printouts of the shots, but his colors are so vibrant and perfect I would have been happy with those alone. Throughout the evening, he checked with us and showed us the shots in the digital camera to make sure we would be satisfied with what we were getting, and we got all the shots we wanted. After the wedding, our pictures were finished at a speed that would make other couples jealous. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again for my next occasion.

Chris photographed my May wedding in Westchester and he did a beautiful job! I have received dozens of compliments on the photos. His work is clean and thorough (he managed to get nearly all of my 130 guests in at least one shot). He took the perfect combination of all typical yet important pictures (first dance, cake cutting, bouquet toss, etc) and of candids. He is very nice, responsive, and easy to get along with, and his passion for his craft is reflected in his work. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone in the area looking for a wedding photographer!

Chris was amazing! He made our day that much more special. His demeanor, professionalism and quality of work were first-class. We are constantly told how wonderful our photos turned out and we know that this is due to his exceptional talent. Chris never interfered or distracted us, our wedding party or any of our guests from the celebration. After recently attending three weddings where this was not the case, I realize how valuable his style was. We will definitely call upon Chris to document the next important event in our lives!

From the moment we met Chris, we were both convinced that we would have to look no further, we had found the perfect person to capture the happiest day of our lives. Chris is not only a wonderful photographer, but also a great person. We had the pleasure of working with Chris to create a series of moments that we will be able to look back on forever. Chris worked with us to truly get a feel for the kind of wedding memories we wanted to create. His cost is extremely affordable and the value for the cost was by far the best out of all the photographers we met with. I would recommend Chris to anyone!

Chris photographed my wedding in September 2009, and I would highly recommend him to any brides-to-be in the New York City area. Chris is so relaxed and easy to deal with. I never felt ANY stress about the photography at any time because Chris always made my husband and I feel at ease. The day of the wedding, he was calm, professional, and a lot of fun to work with. All of my friends and family loved him, too! Our photos were ready two weeks after the wedding, while some of my coworkers whose weddings had been before mine still didn't have their photos. And the photos looked great! I would definitely recommend Chris Ware. He's the best!
