Hey, are you new here? Welcome!

 

my name is chris and I
love my F–ing job.

Chris Schmauch and his wacky family circa 2016 by Sam Fontejon

Boom. I said it (sorta). Sorry if you're offended, but it's true – and I hope it shows in my work. If you're getting married and don't want to stress about anything to do with photos, you've come to the right place. I get hundreds of wedding inquiries every year, but can only work with 25-35 of you (max), and we tend to book up early (check your date).

I promise to be straight with you every step of the way, communicate quickly and effectively, and deliver nothing short of the best experience you can possibly imagine before, during and after your wedding day. I want to be your photographer for life (is that creepy?). 

Intrigued? Feel free to connect with me right now.

My personality is all over this website, and I have tons of info for you – I recommend you keep scrolling down this page for an overview of our services, then jump to FAQ since you probably have no idea what to ask your potential wedding photographer. Check out recent work on the blog, or hop over to www.GoodEyePhotography.com to check out hundreds of real, full weddings.  You can jump straight to pricing, but I only offer preset packages for surprise proposals, engagements & elopements.

I care enough to make time in my schedule (away from that crazy family above) for you. I want to get to know you and your fiancé. I want to find out what's truly important (and what isn't), because I only offer custom wedding packages for seriously interested couples. If your primary consideration is price, and you're comparing photographers on a spreadsheet instead of making actual human connections IRL, I'm probably not the best fit for you.

Still here? Scroll on down to wedding town...

Play this video, it's neat-o!

It all starts on bended knee...

...and now it's time to find the perfect photographer to capture everything that makes you as individuals and as a couple unique. Someone that sees the world like you do, and effortlessly captures everything you care about – from the smallest nuanced details to the grand, once-in-a-lifetime moments.

We're so glad you found us.

Engagement

Engagement


 

Practice makes perfect

Even if you don't need engagement photos for any practical reason – like save-the-dates or to display at your wedding, we believe it's super-important practice to have with your wedding photographer (just like you'd have with your hair and makeup professionals).

We make it super easy to "say yes" to engagement photos. We know you're probably not a professional model, and maybe even uncomfortable in front of the camera. That's reason enough to spend a couple hours walking around a gorgeous, natural setting (we know lots of 'em!) – getting to know your photographer and finding out what poses are most flattering and fun. Plus, we are highly directive during the shoot, telling you exactly what we want you to do every step of the way.

After the session, you'll realize it was actually a lot of fun – and when you see the results, you'll be blown away at how good you both look, giving you tons of confidence going into the wedding day about what we can all achieve together!

Wedding Day


 

Complete coverage by pros who love what they do

Every step of the process – from the first inquiry into your date to the delivery of your final wedding files and album – will be friction and stress-free. We have the kinds of personalities that embrace challenges, shrug off stress, exude genuine kindness and respect, believe in the power of love and most of all, know how to capture any wedding, anywhere, with anyone – in the most creative, timeless and powerful way. 

If you like photos that are directed (but not posey), vibrant and full of depth, intimate and expressive, contemporary (yet timeless) – then you've come to the right place. We have established a consistent, mature style in both the capturing and editing process. This means we're confident showing you full past weddings, proving we can capture magazine-worthy pictures for any bride-to-be, no matter what.

We like to have fun with our clients; happy people are at ease in front of the camera – and our good-natured attitudes are reflected in the subjects of our photos. It just shows that when you love doing something, the results will speak for themselves. We hope to do this for you.
