Not afraid to think outside of the box? Do you love to be outdoors? Thinking of hiking to the top of a mountain for your engagement pictures? I think we may be a good fit if the answer is yes. All that posed stuff isn't really for me, I want to capture the genuine moments and the raw emotion of your day. I am looking for the unique client, the ones who aren't afraid to get their dress a little muddy or feel the wind in their hair, the ones who want to take a risk and do something out of the ordinary. My goal is that years from now, even your friends and loved ones who could not attend the wedding will be able to feel the emotions of your wedding through the images I create.


Chris is a country boy at heart, was born and raised in the woods of Maine, has a degree in photography from RIT, once worked on the Appalachian Trail and lived in a tent for six months as a backcountry ranger, enjoys cycling and disappears during the month of July for the Tour de France, loves music and thinks he knows how to play the guitar. He believes the key to happiness is directly correlated to the number of adventures one has. His editorial work has appeared in numerous publications including Outside Magazine, Backpacker Magazine, National Geographic Adventure and Downeast Magazine. Chris is New England based and available for wedding and editorial assignments worldwide.
