Chris Graamans took our wedding photos and we could not have been happier! The photos are stunningly beautiful. He captured so many moments, not just of us, but of all of the people in attendance during the wedding and the reception. So in the photos, we got to see what other people were feeling. Seeing the joy on the faces of our friends and families made the day even more special for us. Chris really captured the moment (the many moments), allowing us to relive it often. Also, he was so easy to work with. Friendly, kind, unobtrusive and above all, very professional. Great photos -- great experience all around. - Lisa, wedding client

I highly recommend Chris! I love his photos of our wedding -- they are beautiful and truly capture the mood and essence of this very special time. Also Chris provided the edited pictures to us in less than 3 days after the wedding and they are exactly what we wanted. I found Chris to be extremely easy to work with as well as professional and wonderful while interacting with all the people who attended our wedding. He showed up early for the shoot and took hundreds of photos. He was amazing in how he "worked" our event, moving constantly but unobtrusively. Many people commented to me during the reception on how impressed they were by our photographer ... We were extremely pleased with our wedding photographer Chris Graamans and highly recommend his services.

Chris is extremely professional and the best at what he does, at a price much lower than his competitors. I would highly recommend Chris for any photography session, no matter the occasion. I wish him all the best in his future endeavors. - Benjamin, engagement client

Chris took the photos at our wedding and reception. We had a meeting with him before hand where we discussed what would be important to us to capture on film. Chris was amazing in how he "worked" our event, moving constantly but unobtrusively. Many people commented on how he seemed to be everywhere during the entire time. He provided us with edited pictures in less than three days and they are exactly what we wanted. Chris has a professional manner and is highly regarded for his skill in our community. We will always be grateful to him. - Bette, wedding client
