Being a photographer myself, all throughout the wedding planning process, I was constantly asked, “But who is doing YOUR wedding photos?” From the second we were engaged I knew what the answer to this question would be. A husband and wife team from Warwick whose photos I had seen on countless friends’ Facebook pages. Their photos were magic, and I looked to them for inspiration in my own work. I was sure from the beginning, that we were in good hands with Chris Carter Photography.
When we had our engagement photos taken, it was springtime and they brought us to a beautiful location that was in full bloom. They worked so well together and made us feel very comfortable being in front of the camera. They were creative yet diligent and we got through the session feeling confident with how the pictures turned out. We quickly received previews and soon all of the photos and loved every single one. We were so excited to work with them again at our wedding!
Then the wedding day came, and I was able to relax knowing they were photographing our special day. Even though I wasn’t allowed to pick up the camera, I didn’t have to worry for a second with them behind the lens. Everything flowed so naturally, and they had constant communication with each other, discussing lighting, positioning, etc. Watching them work made me proud to be a photographer.
We received previews a few days later and we were just blown away. They captured the essence of the day with each photo. And these were just the previews! We are so happy we picked you two for our wedding photographers, and we are looking forward to working with you both again in the future. I would recommend Chrissy and Christian to ANYONE who is looking for photographers. You will not be disappointed. They’re simply the best!

STOP! If you have been searching high and low for the best wedding photographers– stop looking! Chris and Chrissy are literally THE only dynamic duo you will need when it comes to wedding photos. To start, I planned our NJ wedding from Miami and hadn’t met Chris or Chrissy until about 2 hours before our ceremony. However, from the moment Chrissy walked in, I felt a weight lifted off of my shoulders. It’s difficult to describe how she and Chris handle everything so well. Our bridal parties and families have a lot of personality and both Chris and Chrissy were not only able to “hang” but they made sure everyone was having fun while getting the job done.
I can’t neglect to mention that we were blessed with a 90 degree fall day and as we ran around to take photos everyone was sweaty and some of us (cough groom cough) started to get a little cranky. Chris and Chrissy were not only patient but managed to sneak in great shots as we made our way back to the AC.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about these two. Their presence made me feel at ease and for the most part I never even knew they were there.
Mr. & Mrs. Sanchez
Chris and Chrissy are an absolute pleasure to work with – the epitome of a dream team. All of their photos and the photo albums they offer were enough to reel us in. Their packages offer a nice variety and are beyond fair – let me rephrase – they’re a bargain for the area and amount of talent and care you are receiving. We met Chris at our Engagement shoot and he was great! We’ve never had professional photos done and were a bit stiff in the beginning but he helped direct us and make us so much more comfortable in front of the camera. We were SO pleased and excited to work with them both on our big day. They always say something will go wrong on your wedding day and to expect it to and roll with it. We had no idea if the limos would arrive on time or if any of our guests would cancel last minute – we had no idea that the DJ would end up playing the wrong version of our first dance song that we had learned moves for and we would just roll with it and improvise hand-in-hand…. But we did know that it was our wedding day and we were so overwhelmed with excitement and joy that our day had come, and we felt so lucky to have found each other and to be there soaking in every moment with our loved ones. And the entire time, we had ZERO concerns about how great of a job Chris and Chrissy would do, and we were so right! That’s the feeling you want with your photographers, and ours were ready to capture our special day and reflecting all that went with it. They always kept the mood light while still being professional and making use of every second. Within minutes Chrissy somehow knew the name of everyone in the bridal party (and it was large!), as well as our immediate family – so impressive! They constantly were communicating to each other about poses and adjustments, and they are SO talented with knowing how to capture lighting and angles just right to incorporate the scenery just as much as the couple for all-around great, natural photos (never forced/cheesy). We appreciated how they kept both us and our vendors on time and moving along so that everything would flow nicely and on time. Our wedding preview photos were exquisite quality, such a great selection, and literally posted a day and a half later, right before we left for our honeymoon! We cannot wait for the rest of our photos and cannot recommend Chris Carter photography enough – they will put you at ease with the entire process and you can expect nothing but the best! We hope to be able to have the chance to work with them again sometime in the future. We’d give them 10 stars if we could 😉

Wow! Chris and Chrissy are a bride and groom’s dream photography team! I met Chrissy for our initial meeting, and right from the start we connected; she is so personable. After seeing the duo’s work, we knew we were making a great decision and we were going to get quality shots, that fit our style and taste. We had our engagement shoot with them months before our wedding day, which allowed us to get a feel for what to expect on the big day. The way they work together is effortless, and they create amazing shots, capturing the light just right, the environment around us, and making us feel super comfortable. Flash forward to our wedding, and it was even better. Completely professional, they made sure the process of getting all the shots we needed went smoothly and effortlessly. And the pictures turned out spectacular as well! We cannot recommend them enough!

“BEST WEDDING VENDOR EVER!!!! We used Chrissy and Christian for our Engagement photos and our Wedding, it was the best decision we ever made. They are an extremely talented husband and wife team who work together to make sure every small detail is exactly what you want. What set Chrissy and Christian apart from other photographers (and other wedding vendors for that matter) is that they are the most sincere and down to earth people ever. Unlike other photographers they won’t tell you how amazing they are, they don’t have to, their work speaks for itself! And they don’t have the ultra intimidating massive ($$$$) packages that confuse you. They have a very straight forward pricing system, in fact you can see it on their website right now, unlike other photographers that make you meet with them in person before they will tell you anything at all.
In addition to their amazing talent, they have unheard of customer service. They were the only vendor throughout the whole process that didn’t stress me out. Their communication was almost instant and they were super accommodating.
They were so fantastic at organizing all of the photos on our wedding day. They made the “traditional” posed photos fun and different, and even had my 3 year old nephew smiling in every shot! I have been in several weddings over the years, and I have never worked with photographers who blended so well with the bridal party…and then blended in at the reception. You didn’t even know they were there, but they seemed to be everywhere capturing special moments all evening.
We have only seen a few preview shots from the wedding so far, but they are all phenomenal! I cannot wait to see all of the photos…my only concern is how we will narrow it down enough to make an album that isn’t 1000 pages!
If you are looking for a photographer to capture any special event, you don’t need to look any further. Chrissy and Chris are THE BEST. I look forward to working with them again in the future!”

“Photos are so expensive, and in the Hudson Valley area, it’s difficult to find even a basic package by someone reputable for less than $5000. Enter Chris and Chrissy!
From the beginning, they were extremely approachable. My husband and I were living about an hour and a half from the area, and Chrissy was very accommodating about doing business primarily through phone and email–and responded to emails in no time flat! I was very concerned about how photos would come out because I was having a winter wedding where the default outside photos would not be possible. Also, my church is very strict about pictures and I was warned by other brides that the rules can be cumbersome for some photogs. Luckily, Chris and Chrissy had a great knowledge of both our church and our venue and had amazing suggestions for how to supplement for the outdoor pics that most people have at their weddings.
They really listened to what we wanted and were completely unintrusive on our day. They worked really well (and were very patient with) our friends and family who can be like herding cats and got the posed shots out of the way in a very efficient amount of time–we even got to go to our cocktail hour. The candid shots were the most important to me, as we have a pretty rowdy group of friends and family who know how to have fun, and the dance floor pictures really captured the spirit of our wedding, without there feeling like flashes were going off in our faces the whole time we were dancing.
The quality of our pictures, also, was incredible. I cannot begin to say how many people have come to me and said, just from the preview ones posted on Facebook, how beautiful our pictures were. My best friend is getting married in August and immediately scooped up Chris and Chrissy for her wedding the day after ours! I cannot wait to start putting our album together–the only con is that it will be so hard to choose which pics to add. We are incredibly lucky that such a kind, efficient, talented couple is working OCNY weddings! Thank you so much Chris and Chrissy!”
Mr. & Mrs. Galbo
“Chrissy and Chris were not only amazingly fun to work with but all the pictures came out perfectly! I looked long and hard for a photographer. This couple are real photographers…they don’t photoshop the pictures like other photographers…they use real techniques which adds so much to the pictures! They showed up on time and followed my very detail instructions perfectly! They placed themselves well at the church and the reception, they weren’t annoying or noticeable but were able to capture the day perfectly! Looking through the pictures was better than any video could ever be. Also, the price was VERY reasonable esp considering there were two of them (which was nice for pictures before the church since one could go with the boys and one with the girls). Finally, I never expected the actual photo shoot to be so much fun! Chrissy totally got me! My only regret is that we didn’t do an engagement shoot with them. I could go on and on…”

“We had the most AMAZING experience with Chris and Chrissy! They are the consummate professionals. They were always reliable and easy to reach with any questions I had – I never had any concerns about photos, I knew they would do an amazing job! I just got my pictures back recently from my May 25th wedding and they are STUNNING. They are truly gorgeous pictures and I am so amazed at how they captured not just the moment but the emotion and joy of the day. We will treasure our photos forever! One of the things I loved most about Chris and Chrissy is they will do anything to get the perfect photo. I laughed throughout the day as Chris crawled through bushes and trees and Chrissy made hilariously large gestures and motions to get my 2-year old niece laughing. As a result, we have pictures from stunning angles where everyone is laughing and smiling – they are so perfect! I looked for a long time at vendors closer to my location in Bergen County NJ and found that most of the photographers were either too expensive or didn’t deliver the kind of product I wanted. With Chris Carter Photography, we found the perfect match of an affordable, reasonable price with an incredible product that we are so proud to show off! I have absolutely no criticisms on Chris Carter Photography and HIGHLY recommend them to anyone getting married! You will not be disappointed!”

“My husband and I booked with Chris and Chrissy for our engagement photos and immediately fell in love. As a husband and wife team, Chris and Chrissy compliment one another. They are both so talented and work together to capture the most breathtaking and memorable photos. Although we adored our engagement photos and knew of their abilities, that still did not save us from the complete awe and satisfaction of our sneak peeks from our wedding photos. The uniqueness of their photos and the way in which they find a way to incorporate your personalities as a couple is just amazing. They have so much patience and are willing to listen to your feelings, thoughts, ideas, etc. With Chris and Chrissy, you know that you matter to them and that they will do anything possible to make your day beautiful and captured forever. We are SO happy that we found them and feel so fortunate. If you want quality and unique photos, with outstanding and caring people at a reasonable price, your search is over. Book Chris Carter Photography, you will not regret it.”
Mr. & Mrs. Dempsey
“Jane and I could not have been more pleased with the professional and yet so easy going photography team that Chris and Chrissy shared with us at our special day on West Point this past April 6th, 2013. Their quality work was very unabtrusive which made our day that much more special. One less thing to worry about, one less “box to check” on what can prove to be a hectic day. It was a true joy to have them as our photographers. Very highly recommended.”
Mr. & Mrs. Skow
“Chris Carter photography is a husband and wife tag-team, both of them photographers who will take the most amazing pictures of your event. From the first day we met them, they were very warm and inviting, but very professional and well organized. They showed us a portfolio of their previous work and from those alone we knew they were it! And the price is very reasonable, considering you’re getting two photographers.
At the wedding they showed up early and began taking shots, some posed and some candid. Aside from working very well with us, they have an amazing chemistry with each other as co-photographers.
Our experience with Chris and Chrissy couldn’t have been better! They are professional, accomodating to your preferences, and have a great mastery of their art.”
