Best Choice You Could Make

Amazing, stunning, beautiful, incredible, magnificent are all too cliche to describe Chris & Kerri Kruger’s work. From the first moment we knew that we had chosen the best photographers that Florida has to offer. Chris and Kerri made everything so seamless! They captured every... Read More moment of our day in a way that kept us at ease and in the moment. Both Chris and Kerri knew exactly when to make themselves present and when to be a fly on the wall. At times we didn’t even realize that they were capturing some of our most intimate and cherished moments. Chris knew how to engage our bridal party and capture candid photos with light humor. Both Kerri and Chris are true artists! I could go on for days in regards to praising their work. Make the right decision for your wedding choose Chris Kruger Photography. You won’t regret it!

Chris and Kerri are the absolute best!! They are so knowledgeable, professional and down to earth. They took the time to get to know us and our style in order to make us feel comfortable and at ease during our pictures. They are super fun and above all else their pictures are... Read More amazing! They provided a timeline for the day of the wedding and they were flawless in executing it. We had a lot of family portraits to take after the ceremony and they made sure we got all the pictures we needed. They really led the show the day of wedding making sure everyone was ready and where they were suppose to be for pictures. We cannot wait to see our wedding pictures which I know will be absolutely stunning!! I wouldn't go with anyone else for the biggest day of your life!

I cannot say enough nice and positive things about Chris & Kerri. They did the photography for our New Years Eve wedding and were amazing (we cannot wait to get the pictures). My wife and I were very worried about staying on time for all the pre-wedding photos but Chris+Kerri... Read More were amazing. Not only did they keep us on time, but they worked in enough time where we could relax for a little while (which was needed). Chris was also amazing in helping make sure my bow-tie looked perfect! Just seeing how the two of them worked, and how they had the vision and knowledge of where to take and how to have you pose was amazing. They also did a great job in communicating it! My good friend who was at the wedding is a photographer and they have used Chris+Kerri (should be the ultimate compliment in and of itself). If you need a team, choose Chris+Kerri and you won't be disappointed

Kerri was our photographer for our small Ft. Myers/Naples wedding, and she was just awesome! She took care of things outstandingly, and she made it easy and fun to pose, when we had to. We received our photos at the promised time and my husband and I cannot thank the Krugers...

We are obsessed with looking at them! We highly recommend this couple!!

The value for Chris' work is beyond what one can imagine. We had many obstacles out of our control (i.e., super windy, venue had to change ceremony and cocktail locations, etc.) during our wedding and he and his second photographer were very adaptable, professional, and overall... Read More fun to have around on a stressful yet magical day. The photos arrived within a month in a beautiful package and everyone commented on how amazing they were.

Lived up to Expectations

Reviewed on 8/13/2015 Chrissy D

My husband found CKP online and fell in love with his work. When I looked Chris up on TheKnot and Wedding Wire, he had only good reviews, so we hired him. Chris was AMAZING to work with. He has great ideas, and was also open to recreating some silly pictures I found on... Read More Pinterest. He was also fun to be around. You may not realize it now, but this REALLY matters. You will be spending a lot of time with your wedding photographer, so you better like him/her. We loved Chris. He was so funny, he will crawl around in crazy positions to get the best shot, and the pictures are amazing. If you are someone who likes super-edited photos, Chris is not for you. But if you want photos that reflect your day as it actually looked and felt, Chris is your man.

My Miami destination wedding was on 03/21/15 at the zoological park Jungle Island and I can not say enough good things about Chris and Kerri! As part of our package we received a complimentary engagement shoot that I originally intended to skip. My partner Matt and I aren't... Read More fans of having our photos taken but with some encouragement from others we decided to take up a short shoot with Chris while we were in town in October 2014. Chris was funny, personable and really set us both at ease. His directions on placement and positioning were fantastic. Matt and I both walked away from the shoot feeling good about it and having had a great deal of fun. The photos we promptly received a few days later were stunning. My favorite of the bunch being a candid one Chris snuck in while we were goofing around. In the days leading up to the wedding Chris and Kerri kept in communication and even provided us with a form to make sure all our photo wants in the way of formal family portraits were logged ahead of time. On the day of they arrived precisely on time and Chris even helped tie up my corset back and made a beautiful bow for my sash when my bridesmaids couldn't. My ceremony shots came out beautifully and so many small moments were captured in exquisite detail. Chris and Kerri were both delightful and we all had a great deal of fun wandering around the park taking photos. The photos arrived a few weeks later by mail in a USB stick wood engraved with their company name in a small velvet stack. Everything was phenomenal quality. TL:DR; In short, for the affordability of their packages, the great personalities and their dedication to their clients Chris+Kerri are for sure the photographers I will be recommending to anyone I knew getting married in South Florida.

It will be tough to find words to do justice for how amazing CK Photography is, but I will do my best.

Chris was very easy to work with from day one.

We could not have asked for anything better than the photos that we received from Chris.
