Interestingly enough it was Chris's work that ultimately lead us to getting married in Wilmington. We were searching the web for places and ideas when we ran across Airlie Garden photos that Chris had taken. We set up a short trip over the holidays to visit Wilmington and Chris was very accommodating to meet us at his studio that weekend. The quality of his work is exceptional but that probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind as odd as that sounds. The most memorable thing about Chris was the overall experience he provided throughout the entire process. From the moment we met him we really felt as if we have known him forever. Given the general stress, excitement, and complexity of planning a wedding he really puts your mind at ease with his ability to walk you through the process and offering up many ideas and approaches that will work for you. The reality is that most people don't really know what they want and he was certainly able to map out a plan, approach, and package that worked for us. We rated him a 5 out of 5 across the board without hesitation. The quality of his work (pictures) is impeccable from clarity, variety, and really being able to capture the essence of the day...not just lining up and snapping pictures. Chris was always easy to get in touch with before, during, and after the wedding and his professionalism and flexibility were also top shelf. He tirelessly worked with us to get our photo album and canvas portraits to be exactly what we wanted and he did not stop until we were 100% satisfied. One might think you would pay a fortune for this level of service but his prices are also very reasonable and he also was willing to customize a package and price for us since we had a small and simple wedding. Without hesitation I would recommend Chris for a wedding or any special event that you would want high quality pictures to enjoy the memories for a lifetime.
