Chris and Olivia are the best! Working with them was such a pleasure; they were very responsive, flexible, and professional, not to mention knowledgeable, funny, great to have around when things got chaotic and panicky on our wedding day due to some last minute changes (thankfully they kept their cool and helped us keep everything on track and have a perfect wedding day), and best of all, our engagement and wedding photos were ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. We were so lucky to come across them! I will absolutely use them again for any of our other picture needs (baby photos one day soon, we hope!). Their prices are also very reasonable (I would say below average in the Bay Area) which came as quite a surprise for the quality of their work and their experience so that’s another great thing about them. I absolutely recommend them to all future brides! They are simply awesome!


A friend of mine who had her wedding two years ago recommended them when I wasn’t making any progress with finding the right photographer for us, and she only had super positive things to say about the whole experience and the quality of their work. So I contacted them, hoping they’ll have our date available. Luckily, they did. And I’m happy to say she was right. We truly loved working with Olivia and Chris for our wedding photography. They were the only photographers I contacted (and I reached out to quite a few before them) who showed a real interest in us, what we want, who we are and also offered to drive wherever we were and meet in person. Olivia came to Monterey because I was juggling work and wedding prep and was short on time; that’s quite a hike since they’re from San Jose. Our face to face meeting was great. She’s personable, fun, relaxed, yet professional and so on top of her game. I was impressed. We had our engagement photo session in Carmel, and they both made us feel so comfortable and at ease that day. And the photos which we used both for 'save the date' and at the venue turned out better than we could’ve hoped for. On the day of our wedding, they arrived at the venue before they were supposed to and all through the day did a great job taking not just all the photos we wanted but also much more than that. And although they were there for every single moment of the day, they weren’t intrusive or in people’s faces. We trusted them 110% with the whole process, and I’m glad we did so. When we received the pictures, a few weeks later, both my husband and I, and my parents who got to see them right away, were all so happy. They look amazing! Now I know why everyone is excited to work with them!


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 did the engagement shoot with them and couldn’t be happier with the results. Their emphasis on gorgeous lighting and natural, candid “real” photos drew us to them, and they exceeded our expectations. The photos turned out as I was hoping they would – beautiful, elegant posed photos and moving, candid photos that captured the fun and emotion of the event with our family and friends. Beyond their photography skills, they are an excellent asset while planning the wedding. In building our photography timeline, Olivia & Chris helped me frame my full day timeline and were invaluable for questions that I had throughout. 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.


Chris and Olivia were our wedding photographers and we’re beyond happy with our experience with them and the quality of their work. Top notch! Finding the right photographer for us was a bit stressful since there are so many and they all seem fine, but we were so lucky to have found Chris and Olivia because they understood exactly what we were looking for! After exchanging a few emails and getting a really good feeling about them, we met Olivia to chat about what we were thinking of and we left that meeting convinced we could trust them with the entire thing and not worry about anything! We were interested in more candid than posed shots (although we knew we probably had to do some posed shots because our families wanted to), and they delivered! Their photos were gorgeous, light, airy, elegant, fun. Both Olivia and Chris were complete professionals throughout the day, and so friendly and patient when getting all the family shots done. We had multiple people comment on how great they were, including some who are quite hard to impress. My husband’s parents loved them so much at one point during the evening they asked for a selfie, which they graciously and happily obliged! We highly recommend Olivia and Chris. They are fantastic and you won't be disappointed!


Olivia & Chris were truly the perfect photographers for us. They captured such beautiful, artsy pictures yet were unobtrusive and fun all at the same time. They’re such professionals and made us feel at ease every step of the way. Thank you so much, Olivia & Chris! Love you!


Chris was remarkable! Not only was he completely attentive to every situation, but he brought style and uniqueness to the shots. He knew when to guide us, but also when to just take advantage of the surroundings, light and just what was happening around us. We had ideas he easily accommodated and then he brought things to the table that we would’ve never thought of. And as a result, our wedding album is a total success! Above and beyond what we had hoped for. If anyone has even the slightest doubt about who might be right for shooting their wedding, I can assure them that Chris is beyond capable, and they'll enjoy every moment of working with him, and in the end, they will have the perfect memories to admire for the rest of their lives!


Chris and Olivia are incredible! Not only is every single one of their photos stunning, but they are also incredibly friendly, warm, responsive, detail oriented, and supportive throughout the entire wedding planning process. I would recommend Chris N Creative to everyone and anyone ten times over! THANK YOU, Olivia and Chris, for truly capturing the magic of our wedding day and our love story!


There are not enough good things we can say about Chris N Creative. My husband is quite camera shy, so we hesitated about hiring professional photographers for our wedding. Luckily, we found Chris and Olivia and we’re so thankful and happy because of that. They are professional, warm, make an awesome team, have an infectious enthusiasm and positivity and they were so friendly and easy to work with. Although they started off as our photographers, they ended up being our friends. And the photos…simply gorgeous! They really tell our story and we couldn’t be happier. Hands down, the best experience we could ask for. You have to have them at your wedding. We’ll recommend Chris N Creative to everyone we know.


We are in love with Chris & Olivia! They are top notch professionals and the greatest people we've ever met. We received the photos very fast! Great quality pictures. We totally recommend them! You've made our lives and our memories more beautiful than ever! Love you guys!


Chris is an absolutely amazing photographer and an incredibly kind person. My husband and I loved working with him and Olivia! They were prompt with responses right from the beginning and so easy to work with. The day of, Chris did a fantastic job capturing both candid and posed photos that still make me smile whenever I look at them. I could not recommend Chris as a wedding photographer enough!


If you are looking for a wedding photographer then look no further than Chris! He was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. Professional, efficient, friendly and, most importantly, took the most fabulous photos. The photos tell the story and bring back every feeling of a wedding day and we look at them feeling laughter and tears. Outstanding communication, quick turnaround and near 1500 shots of pure gold that we will treasure forever. I can’t recommend Chris enough! Thank you, Chris Neacsu!

Chris was fantastic for us. He was kind and understanding of crazy last-minute changes in our schedule. He captured some amazing memories. We’ve used him for other personal family photography and even hired him for real estate photography. He’s a wonderful and caring photographer! I highly recommend him.

If you are looking for a photographer to capture the true essence and catch the perfect day, then look no further. Chris is extremely professional. He has an amazing talent for capturing moments, exactly the way you would want them to be captured. We are so glad we found you. I'm the person who has high expectations, but you did a great work. I highly recommend for a great experience.

Chris is one of the kindest and sincere people I know. He is always trying to bring out the best in you. We became really good friends right from our first interaction. I have worked with many photographers and when other professional photographers see The photos that Chris took of me, they always have something positive to say starting from his sense of color to his understating of lighting. The best thing about Chris is that he will become your friend and he genuinely cares about you as a person which I feel is the strongest trait of a photographer because it makes you feel at ease and your expressions become effortlessly cool and natural!


It was a pleasure to work with them and we'd highly recommend Chris and Olivia! During our wedding last year in June they communicate so great and you could trust in them in seconds. We were very blessed to have worked with them and encourage anyone to do the same. We absolutely love our photos! They were able to capture all our emotions and they will have our gratefulness for our life. Thank you guys for the awesome photos, professionalism and for the moments! You gave us great memories!

- Anne Marie

I highly recommend Chris and Olivia! They recently photographed our wedding and the sneak peek they sent us the next day took our breath away! They're so creative and fun to work with, I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures. I’d recommend them a thousand and one times over (actually, already did. My sister-in-law just got engaged!)
