Started shooting digital in 1997 and never looked back at film since. Photography is a passion, a creative outlet, and a satisfying business full of opportunity. I love people, and feel that engaging with people personally makes for stunning, real photography. Interaction is key to setting subjects at ease, and capturing fleeting moments in a natural, beautiful way.

I am a husband of a loving, amazing woman, a father of two beautiful girls, and a creative professional with a passion to please. If I could pay the bills with the ear-to-ear smiles and compliments from my clients, I'd work for free :)

I'm a gadget-loving, technology geek. But I'm also a compassionate human-being lover. Put the two together and you get state-of-the-art images that will provide meaningful enjoyment for a lifetime.

Chris is really good at what he does, and he's not shy about showing it off on his website. You can see the quality of his work by browsing through all the amazing pictures on his portfolio. He is very laid back and willing to work with you. I can't wait to see the images he'll be able to capture at my wedding.

I can't begin to tell you what a fantastic decision it was to hire GoodEye. He was referred by our wedding coordinator, Denise Addesso, and he was one of several EXCELLENT recommendations. When we saw his work on his webpage, we knew he was the absolute best. Not only was he the best in regards to sheer talent, but he was truly a delight to have around for both the engagement shoot and the wedding as well. We had such a fun time getting ready and he got some incredibly clever shots (including a stuffed otter wearing my wedding shoes- one of my favorites, and perfect for an aquarium wedding!). His sense of humor is a delight, and will certainly calm any frantic bride! Also, turnaround time was superb. We didn't expect anything for months, and he got us everything in about 2-3 weeks! Highly, highly recommend!!

Our process for choosing a wedding photographer was simple: We picked ten highly-rated local photographers on Yelp, loaded their portfolio galleries from their websites into ten tabs in a web browser, then just compared photos. The results were illuminating:

Four of the photographers showed what we would call mediocre photos in their own portfolios. Some seemed not to have a very good "eye," or sense of what good photography is. We ruled them out immediately.

Another four showed very stylized photos-urban, trendy, chic, grunge, edgy, etc. This is not bad, it's just not what we were looking for.

Two of the galleries were quite good-filled with quality photos. But just one stood out as truly excellent-GoodEye photography. Chris was the only photographer we contacted, and we feel lucky that he was able to shoot our wedding.

Chris knows exactly how to shoot a wedding without being obtrusive, but still getting excellent shots. He sent us guides in advance to help us plan. For example, he suggested we put together a shot list of wedding party and family groupings that we wanted, and appoint someone to gather those folks. He shot the entire list in about 20 minutes after the ceremony, so that we could all get back to the reception. Greatly appreciated!

Chris was so unobtrusive, we sometimes didn't know where he was. But he was always somewhere where something interesting was happening, getting great shots.

Finally the results were fantastic. He got all the classic shots that everyone wants, but also delivered a large number of romantic, casual and just plain fun photos on his own. We've been going through all the photos over and over, noticing new things every time.

We are extremely pleased!

Chris recently shot our wedding at Byington Winery. He was so much fun to work with, before the wedding, during, and afterward, through to the finished product. The images we received captured the event so perfectly and were just stunning. It was obvious that all of our guests felt comfortable with him, enabling him to be able to capture smiles, laughter and so much joy at our event that going through the photos brings tears to my eyes. The end result was above and beyond what I could have imagined. He knew just the right interactions to watch for and to capture among our guests. We didn't plan to order an album, but now, I know I have to let him work his magic on a coffee table book for us. He is fabulously professional, fun, and obviously very technically skilled with the camera and his tools of the trade! You won't find anyone better!

My bride and I were very pleased with Chris in all aspects: quality, professionalism, speed, communication, promptness, and very easy to work with among others. Most of all he is able to get the shots quickly and let us and our guests enjoy the wedding without everyone feeling like they are doing photos all day. He is also able to capture at all the right moments but somehow never seems to be in the way of the wedding activities. The engagement photo session was also top-notch. As the saying goes, "you get what you pay for". While Goodeye is not inexpensive, Chris delivers excellent quality and results.

I found GoodEye through Yelp and now it is the time to feed Yelp ;-)

I browsed 20+ photography on Yelp that rated about 4. They all looked very nice and professional. While exploring the photos, Chris's photo captured me. It is like choosing the wedding dress, though all of them looks pretty, when you find your dress, you know that's the one!

So I followed my heart and booked the session with Chris (he has a calendar page on his website and you can see he is VERY BUSY. So, book ahead!! ) . You can barely notice when he took the pictures so they looks very nature and organic,which is exactly what I am looking for. I am really glad that I invited Chris as my photographer for my big day!!

PS: I received my photos yesterday and I wasn't expecting to see them in 2015 based on Chris's calendar! Best Xmas gift ever!!!

My husband and I are extremely happy with Chris and his talented work. He captured many details of the wedding and ceremony that we didn't get to see. It was such a pleasant surprise seeing those moments on in his work, which stirred up the same happy emotions as our wedding day. Thank you Chris! See you in Carmel again on our 10th year wedding anniversary!!! :)

My husband and I were extremely happy with Chris as our wedding photographer! In looking for a photographer, I wanted to make sure to find someone who could capture great formal portraits as well as great candids. GoodEye Photography + Design was on the list of preferred vendors at our venue, The Bridges Golf Club in San Ramon, and we really liked his portfolio out of the many we reviewed, so we feel incredibly lucky that Chris was available for our wedding date because he did such an amazing job! We planned our wedding in a relatively short time period (four months!), so we were thinking of skipping engagement photos, but Chris encouraged us to try to build these in as practice for the big day, which we were really happy we did. The photos he took of our engagement session and our wedding day turned out so beautifully ... I wish he could've been around for the proposal! ;) Chris is extremely professional, organized and artistically talented, but also super laid back, flexible, and easy to work with. He even texted us a few select shots the day after our wedding to give us a quick sneak peek, which was really awesome. I would recommend him to anyone, and if we have future photography needs, we would love to hire him again!
