My name is Chris. I love being a photographer and videographer. I think I might be as excited about a wedding day as my brides and grooms are. I love that I can do this for a living and help support two wonderful children including a special needs child. Capturing such wonderful human emotion is one of the most rewarding parts of my career, and thus my life. I feel incredibly lucky and blessed to have the opportunity to do what I love and am passionate about for a living. In addition, I've been able to put together an amazing team of people.
Before starting Fantastic Photography in early 2017 I worked under the management of H Squared Photo and Video. The owner and videographer became suddenly disabled and moved away with family to help take care of her. One of her lifelong friends, Kurt, continued helping by becoming my assistant. I took over the website and photography division to continue support for previous clients and I also had to purchase new equipment to fulfill the video jobs that the owner of H Squared had yet to shoot while she finished editing her existing video jobs.
Our business was founded on a passion for photography and videography and a desire to put the customer to the forefront, ahead of profits, and focus on the artistic side of the products we provide.

Chris (Lead Photographer)
Though we are a separate legal entity, Fantastic Photography took over where H Squared Photo and Video left off. Using the same primary photographer, we continued the passion, effort, vision, and support for previous clients by taking over the gallery hosting sites, review sites, and everything else we could to maintain services for previous clients.
We now offer highlight videography as well. I have long had a passion to capture videography as beautiful as my photography, as you can tell by viewing my very first highlight video: Click Here. You can see other videos here.
