  • Chris was absolutely wonderful!! He helped us to feel and look natural while posing. He was quiet and un-noticeable during our ceremony and that was really important as we were married on the family charter boat. He made our engagement photos look absolutely amazing and we cannot wait to see how our wedding photos turned out. I would recommend him to anyone in need of any type of photography.

  • We are so happy we ended up going with Chris & GoodEye Photographer for our wedding at the Perry House. We did an engagement session with Chris, which was a great experience as it got us the opportunity to get used to working with him (easy!) and we ended up with awesome pictures to use for our invitations and website. Chris was critical in helping our wedding go smoothly - we felt like we were in excellent hands the entire time. We had multiple people (especially family) tell us how much they liked the photographer! We especially appreciated how he helped us get through the family formals quickly so we could rejoin the cocktail hour with plenty of time before dinner. And best of all, we ended up with over 900 edited photos delivered to us only two weeks after the event! Chris captured so many moments beautifully and we couldn’t be happier with the results!

  • I cannot say enough good things about Chris! He photographed our wedding in October and engagement photos in April. If you are in need of a photographer for any event, I highly recommend Chris! His artistic eye is fantastic! I absolutely love our photos! We lucked out that the weather was great on the day, but it just made the pictures even more wonderful. He is very easy to work with and communicates with you throughout the entire process.

  • I would definitely recommend Chris for your photography needs. He is easy to communicate with and is proactive in providing you with all the information you could possibly need without even having to ask. We ended up with over 1,000 edited pictures from our wedding day. I got many compliments from guests about how he was able to capture every moment, they never felt like he was in the way, and he was relaxed and professional. We will enjoy our pictures for years to come.

  • Chris took our wedding photos (and my sister's too!). Chris is so easy to work with and captures so many beautiful moments. He takes time and is patient with adults and children as they gather for the large group photos. Thank you Chris!!!

  • We selected Chris of GoodEye Photography for or beach wedding ceremony and reception on March 17th, 2018 at Manresa State Beach. Right from the start Chris was very responsive and professional. He took the time to meet with us on several occasions and went through the whole process. On the day of the wedding he showed up promptly and immediately started taking photographs. Chris didn’t miss anything and captured far more than we expected. His creativity is second to none. We are absolutely pleased with his work and are glad we selected GoodEye Photography. Thank you so much Chris for all you did to capture our special day.

  • Chris of GoodEye is the most amazing photographer ever!! When looking for a wedding photographer, we reviewed different portfolios. When we came across Chris's website and body of work, we were mesmerized. His photographs blew every one else's out of the water. Just from his photographs alone, we knew Chris was the photographer for us, which was only solidified further when we met him in person. Over tea at a half-way point (which Chris treated us to generously), we bonded over the Santa Cruz area, pets, and the importance of family-first. Not only is Chris an uber-professional (creative, responsive, organized, flexible, experienced, interpersonally savvy), but he is an incredibly genuine, warm, thoughtful, and easy-going person. We did a mini-engagement shoot at Capitola Village and Chris made us feel so at-ease and interjected fun into the shoot. Literally 30 minutes after the shoot, he texted us a few sneak-peeks! He sent us our engagement pictures about a week later and our jaws dr... Read more

  • My wife and I got married on June 25, 2017 at The Meritage in Napa, CA and Chris was our photographer. I used to be a wedding photographer in WA and finding the right photographer was always something important for my wedding. After hours of searching and meeting with many photographers, I knew we had found the one when I received an email back from Goodeye and it was full of sarcasm and little hints at his personality. After meeting with Chris and seeing his work, I knew we had found the one. His use of lighting and speed made us confident in his abilities to immortalize our special day. Chris worked with us to get the package and price that was best for us and only 4 weeks later we received over a thousand well shot photos. I will definitely be referring Chris to anyone I know in need of a photographer in the Bay Area. Thanks Chris! Love Nathan & Kayleigh

  • I literally cannot say enough good things about Chris. From the moment we met him to discuss our wedding shoot, he was incredibly thorough, up-front, and professional. He got us our photos extremely quickly (over 800 in about a month), and they're STUNNING. Many of our guests commented on how gentle and professional he was in taking pictures of guests, and everyone in the bridal party was impressed with his efficiency and skill. Everyone loves the candids (and there are many)!

  • Chris is really good at what he does, and he's not shy about showing it off on his website. You can see the quality of his work by browsing through all the amazing pictures on his portfolio. He is very laid back and willing to work with you. He delivered a great mix of classic and candid photographs. We loved so many of them that we spent hours trying to decide which one to send along with the thank you notes! The price tag is high, but it's well worth it.

  • I can't begin to tell you what a fantastic decision it was to hire GoodEye. He was referred by our wedding coordinator, Denise Addesso, and he was one of several EXCELLENT recommendations. When we saw his work on his webpage, we knew he was the absolute best. Not only was he the best in regards to sheer talent, but he was truly a delight to have around for both the engagement shoot and the wedding as well. We had such a fun time getting ready and he got some incredibly clever shots (including a stuffed otter wearing my wedding shoes- one of my favorites, and perfect for an aquarium wedding!). His sense of humor is a delight, and will certainly calm any frantic bride! Also, turnaround time was superb. We didn't expect anything for months, and he got us everything in about 2-3 weeks! Highly, highly recommend!!

  • Our process for choosing a wedding photographer was simple: We picked ten highly-rated local photographers on Yelp, loaded their portfolio galleries from their websites into ten tabs in a web browser, then just compared photos. The results were illuminating: Four of the photographers showed what we would call mediocre photos in their own portfolios. Some seemed not to have a very good "eye," or sense of what good photography is. We ruled them out immediately. Another four showed very stylized photos-urban, trendy, chic, grunge, edgy, etc. This is not bad, it's just not what we were looking for. Two of the galleries were quite good-filled with quality photos. But just one stood out as truly excellent-GoodEye photography. Chris was the only photographer we contacted, and we feel lucky that he was able to shoot our wedding. Chris knows exactly how to shoot a wedding without being obtrusive, but still getting excellent shots. He sent us guides in advance to help us plan. For e... Read more

  • Chris recently shot our wedding at Byington Winery. He was so much fun to work with, before the wedding, during, and afterward, through to the finished product. The images we received captured the event so perfectly and were just stunning. It was obvious that all of our guests felt comfortable with him, enabling him to be able to capture smiles, laughter and so much joy at our event that going through the photos brings tears to my eyes. The end result was above and beyond what I could have imagined. He knew just the right interactions to watch for and to capture among our guests. We didn't plan to order an album, but now, I know I have to let him work his magic on a coffee table book for us. He is fabulously professional, fun, and obviously very technically skilled with the camera and his tools of the trade! You won't find anyone better!

  • My husband and I got married on 9/3/2017 at Testarossa Winery in Los Gatos, CA and Chris with GoodEye did an AMAZING job. We don't have enough good things to say about our ultimate experience. Chris was with us through every step of the planning process making recommendations on timelines for the day as well as various shots that we may have wanted to consider adding (such as formal shots we may have missed). He even included a complimentary 30min 'engagement shoot' to get to know his style prior to the wedding (which we highly recommend). Chris was very personable and professional. He helped to really bring the day together and his turnaround time was incredible. We had access to our photos within two weeks of the wedding! He processed and touched up everything with great attention to detail and organized everything on his site to make it easy for us and our guests to access and download. We highly recommend working with Chris and GoodEye Photography!
