Chris Genovese is everything you want in a wedding photographer and then some. From our initial phone call to the last shot on the wedding day, he was phenomenal. He was extremely professional, knew what he was talking about, and made sure we knew exactly what we were going to... Read More get. We didn't actually meet him in person until our engagements but he was so friendly and made us feel very comfortable throughout the shoot despite having just met. Those pictures were amazing and the work he and Lauren did for our wedding were absolutely stunning! I can't stop looking at the pictures; every time I go through them I love them more and more. They were able to capture every important moment of our day without being in the way. You will hardly know he's there! You can feel the emotions of the day through the photographs. We couldn't have asked for better and can't thank them enough! We loved working with him so much we recommended him to my brother-in-law and his fiance, so we have the pleasure of seeing Chris again in January! All in all, if you want beautiful pictures and a photographer with a fantastic personality, look no further. This is it.

Our wedding day was even more perfect & thanks to him & Jenny, our day was captured beautifully! Jenny was just as amazing and so easy to work with! Not only was she providing exceptional photography, but she was so sweet to continuously check in with me & make sure I didn't need anything prior to my ceremony!

Genovese Ashford was wonderful! Our wedding was 6 months ago in Houston and I have finally found the time to sit down and write reviews for all of our wonderful vendors and awesome photographer. Our photographer was Chris and he did our engagement photos, my bridals and our... Read More wedding day. My husband and I live in Chicago but are from Houston so decided to have our wedding in Houston as it was much more convenient for our friends and family (plus I wanted a winter wedding which is not ideal in Chicago). Needless to say traveling back and forth for wedding planning and pictures was quite a challenge and we both had very restrictive schedules, but Chris was so flexible and accommodating and happily worked around our busy schedules. He even shot my bridals the week of Thanksgiving since it was the only time I could be in town before the wedding but after my dress was finished in alterations. We were very happy with our engagement photos and they made for a great save the date! What ultimately convinced me that I had chosen the right photographer was when I saw my bridal portraits. I have never liked how I photograph (regardless of what other people tell me) so I was nervous about having so many individual pictures of myself and was worried that no matter how beautiful my dressed looked I would still not love how I looked. Well, I could not have been more wrong. I can honestly say I loved every single one of my bridal portraits, they were gorgeous! I don’t know how Chris did it, but I could not have been happier. The pictures showed off my dress, veil and bouquet beautifully but also captured my personality too. As far as the wedding, Chris and his assistant were just as great then. I have pictures of every single significant moment and didn’t even notice them during the ceremony but the pictures were all wonderful and really captured all the emotions and fun of the wedding. We ended up with over 700 from the wedding and narrowing it down to 100 for an album was beyond difficult. My mother has already ordered some portraits and an album and the turn-around time is so quick compared to what I expected which is great and the quality is great too. We had a great experience and would absolutely recommend Chris and Genovese Ashford Studios to any couple for their wedding!

You almost didn't know they were there sometimes as they stayed out of the way and focused on capturing each part of the day....the getting ready, the ceremony and the reception. We were blown away when we got our pictures back. I love all of them and I wouldn't have changed a thing! My only problem now is choosing only a select handful to put in an album. Thanks Chris and Lauren!

Chris and his lovely assistant covered our engagement and wedding absolutely FLAWLESSLY. Chris is the most down to earth and personable photographer you will ever meet. I'm so grateful to have found him. I'm obsessively neurotic about photos taken of me (professional... Read More selfie-taker, admittedly) and he helped me to feel comfortable in front of the camera for the first time in my life. My only regret is that I didn't book him for a bridal session (already saving up for a post-dated shoot, I love our photos THAT much!!!) He was down for all of our ideas concerning the engagement shoot in the Heights and is very versatile in any location. Our wedding was very diy- he provided guidance and suggestions that were super helpful and resulted in fantastic shots. They were even up for shooting the metal band that played our wedding! Those ended up being some of our best memories of the evening and I'm so happy to see they were enjoying themselves while doing such amazing work. He was our favorite part of getting married besides, you know, the whole being in love and finding your soulmate thing. I want Chris to shoot my entire life, I cannot recommend Genovese-Ashford highly enough! Everyone is raving about these photos! THANK YOU!!!
