  • Where to even begin - Channing is simply the best. He captured every moment of our day but never was disruptive or "in the way." We equally love our portraits, candids, and other pictures of our guests dancing the night away. Channing was so great to spend time with during our engagement and wedding photoshoot, which can't be underestimated. We would hire Channing again in a heartbeat!

  • Channing is that perfect combination of talent and calm professionalism that is incredibly valuable in a good wedding photographer. He arrived early to scout out the location and get a feel for the flow of the event, he was super attentive to the entire wedding party without having an overpowering presence, and he worked super efficiently so everyone had time to enjoy cocktail hour. His work is gorgeous, and he does a beautiful job of capturing unscripted moments. Highly recommend him!!

  • We highly highly recommend Channing to all couples searching for a wedding photographer. My husband and I were both a little nervous about being in front of the camera on our wedding day. We were looking for a photographer who could capture the day without being too intrusive. We also wanted a photographer who would make us feel comfortable. Channing truly went above and beyond - from our first meeting, engagement shoot and wedding day! We're so thrilled with our wedding photos. My mother-in-law summed it up nicely when she said "every photo looks like art!" It's true, Channing is so talented and has such a great eye. Every time I look through our album, I see a new details - something that I missed before. I feel like the day was so well captured - we have so many wonderful candid shots of the day that capture us and our guests so perfectly. Not only that, we now have amazing family/friend/couple portraits too! We also did an engagement shoot with Channing which was so fun and I highl... Read more

  • It is rare that you find your wedding photographer 9 years before your wedding, but I did. I found Channing online when I was in college and super into wedding photography. At that time, I had commented on his blog about how I wanted to pre-book him for my “one-day” wedding. And boy was I lucky that he was available for our September 2018 wedding. Channing is a true professional, the best of what I have seen out there for documenting such an important life event. Our experience with him was unparalleled. From meeting with him months out and chatting through our hopes and requests, Channing made us feel like every idea we had was fun and he attacked it with enthusiasm! He was quick to respond and made the experience feel so personal, down to his handwritten thank-you note to our mailbox thanking us for booking with him. On the day of our wedding, Channing was a ninja. He was everywhere and nowhere at the same time; if that’s possible. He integrated so well with our groups that it ... Read more

  • Channing is absolutely wonderful! He captures photos and details that you would never thing of. For example, he took a photo of us dancing and in the background he even captured my parents smiling from ear to ear, an amazing photo!!! He remains calm despite all the chaos of all our family members and requests for posed photos. Channing really spends time to get to know you before the wedding; even though we lived far away, he took time to FaceTime us several times to ensure we were comfortable and all set to go. We never felt that he was ever in the way and yet still captured everything. He is so caring that when my grandma passed away I texted and asked if he could send us some photos with all of us...literally the next day he had them all edited and emailed them, this meant the world to us!!! We received our pictures so quickly and SO PLEASED with all of them!!! Highly recommend Channing, you won't be let down!!!

  • Channing photographed our June 2017 wedding and was absolutely incredible. Channing has a uniquely calm, gentle and easygoing presence, and as a result, he is able to capture all of the subtle and emotional moments of your wedding day. We loved working with him and having him around, and the pictures we received far exceeded our expectations. They're simply magical. Friends, families, and even wedding vendors have asked for copies of his pictures. Thank you for sharing your talent with us, Channing!

  • We fell in love with Channing's photos after looking at his portfolio and we immediately knew that he was the one for us. He was able to capture so many emotions and special moments on the day of our wedding and the night before. He photographed our large, colorful and rowdy Indian wedding like a pro. We're so grateful for the photos and lifetime of memories he captured - they still take our breath away a year later. His style is very low-key -- he instantly made us feel comfortable with him and he blended into the background. We have no idea how he was able to get some of the shots that he did. He's a very special and talented photographer - we wholeheartedly recommend him.

  • After I saw a friend’s wedding photographs, I was certain I wanted Channing to photograph our wedding. From the moment we first spoke with Channing over the phone, it was clear that he was going to be a professional, organized, and calm presence throughout the planning process and on the day of our wedding. Throughout our wedding day, Channing felt like a friend we’d invited to the wedding - he was able to connect with our families instantly and make everyone feel comfortable, which made for genuine moments he was then able to expertly capture. We received our photos VERY shortly after our wedding and have been in complete awe ever since - he captured so many beautiful, short-lived moments that we can now hold onto forever.

  • After looking at many hobby photographers turned wedding photographers (which isn’t a bad thing at all), Channing’s level of photography is evident. While looking at his photos via his blog, we knew we wanted him to photograph our wedding. He has experience in taking photos for newspapers and magazines. He has the ability to take creative photos that show emotion. Not so much posing, but many candid photos shot in interesting ways! We first met with Channing at his studio in Arlington. We talked about his packages, and availability, etc. He was professional, and genuinely a nice and cool guy! We were also able to look at some wedding books he made for his clients. After meeting him, we sent him a deposit check as soon as we could. Channing shoots weddings solo, and he said that he can pretty much capture every single guest at least once. He showed up to our wedding location promptly, or even earlier I believe. We communicated via email for the schedule for our wedding day so he kne... Read more

  • We had nothing but a wonderful experience working with Channing. He was a pleasure to work with and really took the time to understand what kind of photographs we wanted for the wedding. His photographs come across as unscripted and really capture wonderful moments from the wedding night. While he is more than happy to do the typical portraits with family members, what really struck us was how well he could capture an emotion or small detail from of our wedding in such a powerful way. He also managed to make himself invisible. We have all been to weddings where it feels like the photographer is in the way of everything. Not the case with Channing. We could not be happier with our photographs and the service that Channing provided. We would highly, highly recommend using him to capture your wedding.

  • Channing Johnson was absolutely phenomenal. He has such amazing talent and is so wonderful and accommodating to work with. His photos are stunning, and my family and I have spent hours laughing, crying, and poring over the six hundred photos he sent to us (less than three weeks after the wedding, no less!). What a wonderful man and an amazing talent.

  • If I could give Channing 10 stars on a 5 star scale, I would. He was phenomenal! To begin with, he is super professional and organized. He was always very prompt in getting back to us, and maintains a very clear website for reviewing your contract/payments, as well as (now) for looking at and ordering photos (as part of the package, you are given cds with all of your high resolution prints so you can print them yourself, but he can print them for you for a fee). He is also very personable, so though I'm not much for being in front of a camera, I felt very at ease with him (it was a bonus that he didn't have us doing all of the typical forced, cheesy poses that many wedding photographers employ). Aside from being wonderful to work with, as a photographer, he really is just beyond compare. He is trained as a photojournalist, so he's always looking for the moments of action and/or emotion during the wedding, not just taking snapshots of the predictable "dress on the hanger", or the contr...

  • Channing is brilliant photographer. He has a photojournalism background and knows how to capture the essence of the event. Every shot came out beautifully. My wedding photos look like they belong in a magazine spread. Everything looks amazing. Channing has a wonderful personality. He made me feel at ease with everything leading up to and the day of the wedding. I highly recommend him.

  • Channing was remarkable. Such a nice guy. He was so easy to work with. Pictures are what you have to remember your wedding when you are 80 years old and looking back on the past. I loved every picture he took. He is brilliant. He captures everything you want and more. My wedding day went so fast and it was so nice to look st my pictures and remember the moments and the ones that I didn't remember haha. Thank you so much for helping make my day perfect.

  • The photographer is probably one of the most important vendor choices for a wedding and one of the more expensive. At any rate, Channing is a steal. He is a truly gifted artist and is humble to boot! His photographs from our wedding are displayed on our church's website, our transportation company's website, one of our credit cards, and on the walls of our home as well as our the homes of our family and friends. He took a tremendous amount of photos, was able to really self-edit the collection to capture our essence and our narrative, and we still ended up with SO MANY amazing photographs! We are constantly looking back and wondering who these beautiful people are! It's amazing to relive the moments... the cranky family member who Channing caught letting loose on the dance floor, the friend of the family that made a funny face after having one too many flutes of champagne, the Boston skyline out the window at sunset, the tears on parents' faces, the reflections in windows as we w...
