  • Chris was great to work with and made both of us feel very comfortable on our wedding day while taking tons of photos. Neither of us are very comfortable "modeling" for photos and Chris was very helpful with direction for posing etc. but definitely not too controlling either. I love the way all the photos turned out with the editing style and everything. We got all our photos back about a month after the wedding date, with an easy to use link to view everything online.

  • Chris has been incredibly flexible with all of the covid craziness and us having to change locations and add a videographer. He took everything in stride and captured our day professionally and we can’t wait to see all of the images!

  • I had the pleasure of working with Chris for my own wedding last month, as well as my sister's wedding earlier this year. He is truly amazing. His work is beautiful and he's so flexible and easy to work with. I would 100% hire him again for any photography needs and I will definitely recommend him to anyone I know. Chris is professional, but very personable. My family and my husband's family are both super awkward and absolutely UN-photogenic. We have never been able take nice photos because someone always manages to ruin it. Chris was able to make us all feel comfortable and look great in every photo, especially the portraits which I was most worried about (it is just so hard to fake smile for the camera!). He knew exactly how to pose us and get us laughing/moving so that everything seemed natural. On top of that, his work is beautiful. The photos turned out even better than I could have hoped for. We gave him free reign, and he was able to envision and direct us to get some stunn... Read more

  • Words cannot express the emotions I felt looking at the amazing, artistic photographs Chris Howard created for me and my husband. He was responsive, professional and has an eye for beauty. We shared the same vision that we wanted to not only capture the day and take the regular compulsory photos but create art that would last a lifetime. Wow did we succeed. You will not go wrong working with Chris, he will listen to your needs and take your ideas and the feel you want and conceptualize them for you. I wish I could have had a whole day just traveling around and having photos taken with Chris that's how much I loved working with him and the quality of the photos I received.

  • Working with Chris was a pure joy. He is such a kind warm spirited soul with an amazing talent at capturing moments. He took our engagement photos and was our wedding photographer as well. Without a doubt would recommend him to friends and family.

  • Chris was a fantastic photographer for us! we did our engagement shoot and wedding photos with him and we could not be happier. It was raining up until the wedding ceremony and he was able to get the most beautiful pics. Our wedding was obviously very special to us and we completely made the right decision to have Chris Howard capture those memories for us.

  • We just received our wedding photos from Chris Howard, and think they are absolutely fantastic. We searched for a long time to find the right wedding photographer and we wanted to find someone that had the ability to capture the emotion of the event in a beautiful manner. When we looked through Chris’s portfolio we found his pictures not only aesthetically pleasing, but we felt as if we were physically there at the events he photographed because he captured the reactions, the excitement, and the emotions that flow through a wedding. Our wedding was quite tricky to photograph because both the ceremony and reception were held indoors at the Westin St. Francis. Compounded by the fact that it was also rainy and cloudy made us concerned that our photographs would be dim and lackluster due to the lack of natural lighting. Chris is talented at what he does because our photos turned out wonderful - very radiant and lively. Chris’s style of photography is journalistic, so even thou... Read more

  • Chris Howard did the photography for both our wedding and our engagement shoot. He is a very laid-back, yet professional worker. It was very easy to act naturally around him, and he was very good with staying out of the way of everything, yet somehow was able to capture every moment from the wedding. His photography and editing skills are top-notch, and we were happy with every photo we have seen so far. We ended up having a phone conversation during the week leading up to the wedding, where we discussed the different shots we wanted, the overall schedule for the wedding, etc. Chris is very meticulous when it comes to making sure he captures everything you want from your event. This was very much appreciated, and we were confident and at-ease during the wedding. To be honest, I only really saw him once during the ceremony, yet he was able to capture all of the important shots we wanted. Overall, we would highly recommend Chris for any photo needs (he also does family portraits). ... Read more

  • Chris was absolutely fantastic to work with. He always responded quickly to any inquiry and took the most amazing photos for our engagement photos and wedding photos! Everyone I have shown our photos to has raved about them and we can't wait to have our wedding album made to show them all off. Thank you so much Chris for doing a stellar job for our big day!

  • Chris from the get go was so wonderful. We were lucky enough to have happened upon Chris when researching photographers on Yelp and he was the first we went to meet. Upon ending the consultation we decided he would be the last, we had found our photographer. He was very professional, accommodating and understanding, and provided helpful insight along the way. The day of the wedding he was literally everywhere at once. Even our guests have been acknowledging how wonderful he was. We had a few scheduling blips and he still managed to get the shots he and we wanted.

  • Completely loved working with Chris! He is down to earth and makes you feel comfortable when taking photos. Since my husband I dont live in the Sacramento area, Chris was really flexible with us when we needed to take our engagement photos as well as meeting up with him before the wedding. He was really easy to get ahold of through email and phone, could not have been any better. He really takes his job seriously and wants to make sure that you have the best shot, which the pictures we have from our engagement shoot are amazing!!! His work is incredible and I cannot wait to see what our wedding pictures look like. If you want a photographer who is down to earth and really works with you to get the most amazing photo, go with Chris. You will NOT be disappointed!

  • Chris Howard is your man for photography. After searching for over four months and meeting with multiple photographers, I met with Chris. His professionalism, huge amount of talent, and amazing passion for his work immediately won us over! Despite never having photographed a Pakistani wedding before, which hosts tons of color and drastically different traditions as well as three separate events, Chris was knowledgeable, on point with his suggestions for poses, lighting and balance. His incredible flexibility with our religious and cultural requests was deeply appreciated and really allowed my family, my husbands family, and the two of us to be completely comfortable and happy; resulting in incredible photos!! He also does brilliant editing/photo shop to a final selection of photos and turns them into works of art. Chris has that magical touch you want for something as special as a wedding. His photos were beyond our highest expectations and will last as a lifetime of beautiful ... Read more

  • On March 20th 2020, my Fiancee and I decided to do a very small backyard wedding (10 people) amidst this COVID-19, we had planned on this date for years so there was no backing out for us. Chris Howard decided to cancel on us the night prior due to his wife having a fever. Understandable, but when we inquired about getting out $500 deposit back, he got nasty. His excuse then changed, saying it was against the law for him to leave the house and that we were breaking the law by having our wedding... In the end he canceled on us, keeping our $500 deposit. We were baffled by the lack of integrity this man has. I just hope nobody else risks this situation by hiring him after reading this.

  • Chris was hands down the best decision I made in planning our wedding! One of my biggest frustrations during planning was the lack of (or extremely delayed) responses from vendors! The first time I reached out to Chris via email, he responded within minutes, and with very detailed answers to my many very detailed questions. From my initial phone conversation with him, I knew were going to work together well :) And we did! We didn't plan on doing engagement photos, but Chris generously includes this in his very reasonable package prices. And although he was willing to be flexible, he encouraged this session as it would help us to be more comfortable on the big day. And he was right! He drove 2 hours on a Saturday to do our photos in an area that was special to us. And even went as far as going on an actual hike with us to find just the right location and lighting. On the wedding day I barely noticed him (in a good way)! In fact during my big entrance, I didn't see him and had a mo... Read more
