HIGHLY RECOMMEND! If you're looking for a laid-back-yet-super-detail-oriented-super-sweet pair of photographers - Chris and Kristy Photography is definitely the way to go! They took unbelievably amazing pictures and played such a huge role in contributing to the chill, super... Read More happy vibe that was our wedding day. We weren't super picky about anything we wanted for the day and they did an awesome job getting so many wonderful shots. They also have an amazing magazine they created to help you plan - and since I (the bride) didn't have a personal attendant it was really important for me to have everything laid out for the day and I most certainly wouldn't have done it as well without them! They are reasonably priced and produce such high quality work. ALSO we got our pictures back in less than 4 weeks - which is amazing because you get so antsy to get those back after your wedding day - I mean, can't you just relive your day everyday until the end of time?? Well, I guess the answer is yes if pick this amazing pair of photographers! They do provide you with a 90 day window to get your photos back to you, so I suppose not everyone can expect this, but it was a GREAT surprise for us!! The flash drive you get with your pics is amazing/adorable - which was yet another way they showed us how thoughtful they are and that they truly care about the work they are doing and the role they play in one of the biggest/most important days of a couple's life. You'll be so happy/satisfied/ecstatic (any other positive words you can associate with the way you can feel about your wedding pics) if you pick them - and you should!

Chris and Kristy were one of the BEST choices we made for our wedding! From start to finish they were completely amazing! They really made sure to get to know us and what we wanted before our wedding. They also looked at all of the places we were going to be before the wedding... Read More which was amazing of them! When our big day finally rolled around they made it so everything went smoothly. We were a little nervous about how the weather would be especially with a winter wedding, but they used the beautiful fog from that day and we could not be happier. The entire day they did everything they could to make sure we were happy and captured so many beautiful moments! Looking back through our pictures lets us relive our special day over and over! We would recommend Chris and Kristy to anyone looking for an outstanding photographer! There are not words for how grateful we are to have had them on our big day! Thank you so much Chris and Kristy you are by far the best!!

We wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend Chris and Kristy Photography for your wedding day. First, the planning phase was easy and actually quite fun; they are very professional and organized. We planned from out of town, but they were flexible and met us when we could... Read More visit. On our wedding day, they were friendly and efficient ALL day (and it was a long day!). We got married on NYE in Minneapolis, so it was a LITTLE cold outside, but they made it work and took gorgeous photos outside in the snow. We had friends and family comment about how excellent Chris and Kristy were in that they seemed to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time (taking photos but not interrupting the moment). They captured not only beautiful portraits but also moments of laughter and our personality as a couple, as well as our friends and family. The final product--our wedding photos--we are absolutely THRILLED with them. Would it be too much to get them ALL printed? But seriously, we highly recommend Chris and Kristy and plan to recommend them to everyone we know, so do not wait or hesitate--book them!

Chris and Kristy were amazing photographers. I had the unique need of remotely planning my wedding from Hawaii- they were both very accommodating and personable about the long-distance communication and time difference. I also very much appreciated their realistic, honest... Read More approach. My husband and I were set on not doing a first look- this, however, created a very tight timeline. They were very honest about the possible limitations, and were champs about getting the shots we requested and working around said timeline. The photos themselves were beautiful. My husband and I were paging through then together on our laptop when the finished product was sent- I couldn’t stop crying, it was so accurate to the feel of the day. They did such a wonderful job capturing moments, not just portraits (although we loved those as well). Thank you for using your talents to capture the most joyful, memorable day of our lives, Chris and Kristy!! Mahalo!

Seriously, don't even bother looking for a better photographer! Chris and Kristy were absolutely fantastic photographers for both our engagement shoot and our wedding! They provided us with a wonderfully put together magazine they made with TONS of information and tips about all...

It was so great to be able to reference it throughout our planning process and it kept up from having to bother them a million times.

We really enjoyed working with them and would recommend them to anyone!

Chris and Kristy were amazing! We planned our Minneapolis wedding from Chicago, and they were so great with communication via Skype and email. I felt like we knew them already when we met them for the first time. My family and wedding party LOVED them on the day of the event --... Read More and we obviously did too! They made everything low stress and were so relaxed. We were sad to see them go at the end of the night! They were also amazing after the wedding in that our families were hoping to use our wedding photos as Christmas cards and they rushed to get them done for us! They even managed to have all the children (toddlers, in fact!) smiling and looking at the camera in the photos. I would recommend Chris and Kristy to anyone and am very excited for them to be the photographers for my sister's New Year's Eve wedding this year! Oh, and how could I fail to mention - their prices were SUPER reasonable. I believe I forgot about how amazing their prices were compared to the competition because their quality was unforgettable. We had a noon wedding, so had a long shoot for them to tackle. Chris and Kristy are top notch, quality people and photographers, and were magically within our budget.

What can we say about Chris and Kristy?! Fabulous, FABULOUS photographers.
