Sharing photos right after your wedding. Looking back while toasting a decade. Or telling your kids the story of Mommy and Daddy. Your favorite photos won’t be stylized shoe pics or a close up of your cake.

You’ll linger over that look on his face when he first saw you as his bride. Your parents welling up with happy tears as they watched you say your vows. Those first stolen moments as man and wife (how did that stealthy photographer find you? But you are so glad he did.)

Your wedding day isn’t just about a schedule of events, making sure your groom’s socks match your garter, or even making sure the DJ doesn’t play the Macarena (no matter how many times Aunt Susie requests it).

It’s about those invisible moments that connect us with the people we love.

I’m Chris from The Story Photography.

And I specialize in capturing emotions on your wedding day. When you remember your wedding, it will be about more than just how you looked. It will be about how you felt.

Your favorite pictures aren’t the formal family portraits where everyone is wearing matching shirts and sitting perfectly still.

Your favorites are that pic of Dad as he fell in the pool. That perfectly timed shot of the time you made your friend laugh so hard she fell off her chair.

Your best memories are the candid moments in life. I capture those teary, happy, silly, candid moments from your wedding that will fill your heart when you look back. Read less

Chris is the best!! I thought I would have regretted not getting a videographer to capture all of the moments but once I saw all of the pictures Chris took I was amazed at the story they told of my entire wedding day! He truly captured every single moment and I am forever grateful for that! Chris was amazing to deal with throughout the planning process. He provided me with all of the photos shortly after the wedding so I was able to enjoy looking at all of them on the honeymoon. I can't say enough positive things about Chris.

As cliche as this sounds, Chris 100% captured the most beautiful day of our lives. His professionalism, easy going manner and ability to just know the perfect picture really made it so easy for us. We can't thank Chris enough for documenting every single moment of our wedding. I'm still in awe that we not only have sooooo many beautiful portrait pictures but also how Chris captured every single crazy, funny and loving moment from that day. From the moment the bridal party started to get ready, to the beautiful boat ride after the ceremony, all the way up to the after party. Thank you Chris, we seriously can't thank you enough!

Chris was an absolute PLEASURE to work with. I can not say it enough. He came to Cape Cod all the way from NY to shoot our wedding. And he completely worked around our budget and our preferences. We are both more on the shy side when it comes to being photographed, Chris made us feel so comfortable and we felt at the end of the day that we had not only found a great photographer- but also a friend. The photos are another EXCEPTIONAL thing from Chris. From the engagement shoot to the wedding day pictures- I was blown away with his vision and the way he captured our special day. We wanted the portraits to be mostly candids and not take much time away from the wedding- Chris was amazing at creating a timeline so that we were able to make our cocktail hour. Completely blown away and would recommend Chris to any couple looking for amazing photos. Great guy, great photographer. You will not be disappointed!

Chris is absolutely fantastic!! He captures your entire day and other than the pre-ceremony photos, you would never know he is there and you are just in shock as you go through your photos wondering how he did it!!! I am in love with my wedding and engagement photos and would recommend Chris to anyone. Knowing that I will have these memories forever makes my heart swell with joy. The quality Chris provides in the photos is unbelievable. His photos help me relive the best day of my life every time I look at them :) which is quite often! Chris is extremely flexible and really does put you first for your big day. I never felt like he didn't want to be there or that he was rushing to finish at the end. He is passionate about what he does and you can just see it on his face when he gets that "great shot" how excited he is and just can't wait to show you. He arrived when we wanted him to and stayed until the very end when we had our sparkler send off. The photos are just incredible. Thank you Chris for everything!

Chris Szulwach, the Story Photography, will be our photographer for life. You will be inundated with reviews, and portfolios and fret over who one to choose. Relax. You found him. There are so many great photographers, no doubt. You want a photographer that will capture the essence of you, your love, and all the special moments that might go unnoticed, or become a forgotten memory if not captured on camera. Chris will capture them. There is so much happening on the big day that's it's impossible to see and absorb everything as it happens. You want photos you can proudly share far and wide, in cyber space, and on your wall space. You will get those, but you will also get a photographer who is extremely responsive, who will listen to your ideas and help make your vision a reality. Who will literally walk waist deep in a lake to capture a moment you envision. The only problem I have now is the long list of events I want him to capture for us. I wish we could bring him on our honeymoon!

Chris is excellent! EXTREMELY RESPONSIVE!! Not enough words to explain how awesome it is to send a message out to a vendor and have a near immediate response. And he follows up too if he doesn't hear from you, which is extremely key for someone like me who tends to procrastinate and was sooo disorganized when it came to planning my wedding... I was changing plans for pictures literally the day before my wedding and Chris was just like, "Ok no problem, changes made!" He is easy-going and excellent at what he does. My wedding photos are awesome, he caught SO MANY amazing candid moments, and so much of the laughter/fun that went on that day. I don't even know how we have so many different views of our first dance, between Chris and the 2nd photographer they literally hit every single angle possible! It's incredible. And our formal portraits are great too but I stupidly wanted to rush through all the posed group photos and family photos to get to the cocktail hour and the "fun", and he did exactly what I asked for, and now my only regret is not slowing down instead and getting a few more portraits/group shots! I have nearly 1000 amazing photos, and now I want even more haha, that's how great my photos are. And lastly, Chris is the definition of the word EFFICIENT. He had all of our wedding photos edited and uploaded to a link for us to view just 2 weeks after our wedding day, and he posts sneak peeks on his blog within days of the event. I have no idea where he finds the time. It took me 3 months just to sort through and post my favorite pics on Facebook! Overall, you're in great hands with Chris. He's everywhere at your wedding and yet you have no idea he's there. There are so many pictures but I genuinely don't remember seeing him outside of the formal portraits. He's like a photo ninja. Thanks again Chris for the excellent work!

Chris is an exceptionally professional, talented, and diligent photographer. Our wedding was on a Saturday in June and preview photos were posted the next day and we received our entire digital album on that following Thursday.

Chris made everyone feel comfortable and at ease as he worked and took unique and beautiful shots that truly captured "us" and our family. The happy tears, the smiles, and kids laughing are all now beautiful memories we will have for a lifetime. My husband and our family have been raving over every photo.

I cannot stress enough that if you're looking for a photographer, you've found him! The Costello's cannot thank you enough for these treasures!

Chris perfectly captured our wedding day and engagement. He was easily accessible and quickly responded to all of our emails. His turnaround time is awesome- he got our photos to us less about three days after the wedding! He has a calming presence, helping us relax in front if the camera and making us laugh. Also, when some of my family didn't show on time for photos before the ceremony, he was incredibly flexible and made the situation work to make sure we got our shots. More than anything, Chris took the time to get to know us and helped tell our story through his work.

Our friends and family cannot stop raving about how beautiful the photos are. He has a really incredible eye for great shots and works hard to capture all the candid, meaningful moments. In looking back at our pictures, anyone can see the emotion from our day.
