Amazing photos, impeccable service, sane pricing. I am passionate about providing these three things to every client. I don't settle for simply "satisfied" clients. My goal is to exceed your highest expectations. Your wedding will be an incredible experience, and my job is to make it even more memorable.
One of the most important decisions you'll make when planning your wedding is choosing the right photographer...I'm a little biased of course, but it really is true. You want someone who is professional, creative, fun, and most importantly, a good match for the type of wedding you and your fiance envision. You will see your photographer more than anyone else that day, so you definitely need to find someone you both will enjoy spending time with!

When I'm shooting, I am constantly striving to capture each special moment in a striking and unique way. I understand and respect the fact that these images are a permanent visual record of your big day...a record that you and your family will return to again and again for decades to come. Your wedding will be special, and the memories of your day must be preserved in an equally special manner.

As for your investment in photography, I prefer to keep my rates and packages as flexible as possible. All weddings are unique, and different weddings require different types of photographic coverage. My average rate for wedding coverage is typically in the $1500-$3500 range, depending on various options including the amount of photo coverage, types of prints and albums, digital files, etc.

In addition to photography, I also have a background in architecture and graphic design. I rely on this art and design experience when I compose each shot, and when I patiently anticipate the perfect instant to capture those special moments. My goal is to rise to the ever-present challenge to stay focused and ready to create images that capture the unique nature of your big day.

We hired Willie for as our wedding photographer. From our first initial consult, we knew he was perfect. It was so comfortable with him, not awkward like working with strangers can be. We had our engagement session downtown and he captured some amazing photos. During the wedding day, he got all shots that we asked for and also added his own ideas which were perfect for the group. We just received our online gallery from our wedding day as well. The pictures were breathtaking. We would recommend Willie to anyone who is looking for an amazing, down to earth photographer!

Willie was super easy to work with and was always in contact with me. I knew from the first time I talked to him that working with him would not be work! He was great, and so was Rachel, our second photographer. Willie takes great photos and is a really nice person!
Thanks Again,
Al & Nick

We hired Willie Chandler for our wedding after reviewing several different photographers. We chose him because we loved his style (straightforward, natural, yet unique) and because he was recommended by our venue. He was flexible in offering us a package that fit our modest budget but he provided us service as if we were spending a million dollars. Wedding professionals are busy people, and Willie always returned emails promptly and was happy to work at the tiny details that don't occur to you until 48 hours before your wedding day. Of course, the most important thing is that we love our photos. Your wedding will go by in the blink of an eye - making an investment in a good photographer who will work with you is key.

I am so thankful we did our research and found Willie to capture our wedding day. He was always quick to respond. He also let us organize our own package to cater to exactly what we wanted, and therefore, only pay for exactly what we wanted. He is so talented and creative. He got some great shots and we have received so many compliments on the photos. Not only can he take amazing photos, he has a wonderful personality and it was such a pleasure working with him. Look no further! He is sure to exceed your expectations.

We hired Willie to be our engagement/wedding photographer and we could not be happier that we did! Willie was very responsive and easy to work with. He has a wonderful eye for photography and has great ideas, but was also flexible and willing to work with any special requests or ideas from us. He is very professional, but also friendly and able to connect with everyone and put them at ease. We received many compliments on the photographs, but also from our wedding party and guests that he was a great addition to the whole day!

Willie is a fantastic photographer and very affordable. He responded quickly to all my questions prior to my wedding. At the wedding he had everything photography related so all we had to do was enjoy the day! The pictures turned out beautifully and I received them right away. One of my friends who is getting married saw my wedding album and is now looking into having Willie do her wedding.

Easy 5 stars, great value. Willie was great, very professional and got some great shots for our wedding. We had guests mention that he was a great guy. He even went and grabbed a couple drinks for my wife and I, which was above and beyond the call of duty. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.

Willie was a great find as a wedding photographer--he was super flexible, listened to me when we discussed the look and feel I would like for our photos, got a wide array of images, and dealt with all our family "photographers" who kept getting in his shots. The pictures came out great, even better than I'd hoped! He's a friendly guy and we very much enjoyed getting to know him for this event! The engagement images that we took previous to the wedding were great and now we have lots of photos of us to share with family and friends. The wedding was well-preserved in picture form, and we are very happy with his professionalism and quality. Compared to some other wedding photographers I've seen, Willie is a top-rate photographer, and I totally recommend him!
