Chris and Olivia, owners of Chris |N| Creative, photographers, photojournalists, husband and wife, parents, and hopeless romantics. Yup, this is who we are and we’re proud of it.

We are visual storytellers, and our favorite stories are...*drum roll*…love stories. We absolutely adore getting that first message from a couple who just got engaged and is looking for the perfect photographer for their BIG DAY. It’s so exciting! We love getting to know you, your style, your personality, what you want and what you’re looking for. We always keep our fingers crossed our couples contact us early so we can accommodate their date and hopefully shoot their engagement session too (because, yes! we want to be part of the full story if you’ll have us).

We provide beautiful, timeless engagement and wedding photography and always give you our undivided attention, care, time and genuine enthusiasm. It’s as much about the end result as it is about the experience.

Our work is not about Photoshop manipulation, but about the candid, raw moments and emotions that make your story unique and your wedding day special. The smiles, happy tears, embraces, kisses. The first look. The first dance. Your friends. Family. We are there from the beginning until you leave, and with every photo we take, and every moment we capture we add to the story you will cherish forever and proudly share with generations to come.

We can’t wait to tell YOUR story!

We are so glad that we had Chris and Olivia as our wedding photographers! From the first time we talked to them, they were professional, fun, and so helpful for our entire wedding planning process. We couldn’t be happier with our photos and we are so glad we had them as our photographers! We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a great experience and gorgeous, elegant, real photos.
