I'm like the wedding-photographer equivalent

I’m hustling to make sure your day is one to remember. And if it’s still a little hazy? Well, I’ve got some photos for that.

With me, you’ll get a dynamic mix of candid and posed shots that capture the energy, atmosphere, excitement, nerves, and frame-worthy moments of the day. While there won’t be any stray hair ties on your wrist or beer cans in the background, there will be a sense that I was there for every intimate moment, especially the ones you thought I wasn’t watching. 

Wedding photographer by trade and 

By nature

From being a stand-in bridesmaid,

 to covering for you when you need a moment,

I’ve read enough. I’m yours.

a personality pic at its finest



Less than a mile away

In a previous life I was: back-up singer for Phoebe Buffay and songwriter for Smelly Cat

I love love almost as much as I love: a movie night in with games.

On a Saturday at midnight, I can be found: shooting a wedding farewell or singing my heart out at karaoke with friends.

If people were games, I’d be: The Settlers of Catan

If I had to choose between ceramics and cooking, I’d say: how dare you.

I’m torn between: a horror movie and a rom-com.
My secret party trick is: my bad puns… ask your mom.

this is what our bio would say if there was a tinder for wedding photographers. which way would you swipe?? ;)

chris, you're up

He’s the one capturing your video

I grew up with parents in the film industry and always had a love of video — just don't ask to see the embarrassing films I made as a kid.

My documentary-style approach means I'm constantly looking for the details people miss. I'm there to help you be the stars of your own movie, where from the front row, you'll rewatch your incredible day all over again. Discretionary popcorn is advised.

To this day I'll sleep anywhere for the sake of being with nature, whether it's camping in the summer or sleeping in my RAV4 with my snowboard in ski season. When I'm not chasing powder, I'm chasing ultimate frisbees.

Hey! I’m Chris. I was born and raised in New York though I spent 7 months hiking the entirety of the Appalachian trail so you know I’m up for anything.

Peep the pup

We're kind of big dog people

For us, photo & video act like a touchstone to memories we might otherwise forget. Helping you share them with others is just another perk that gets us up in the morning.

We know it can feel WEIRD being in front of the camera - there's a reason we're on this side of them! We will be leading you through poses, making sure you’re feeling comfortable and confident — but never cheesy. Let’s leave that to the grazing table.

tell us more about how we work with you

"I cannot thank you enough for capturing our wedding day so perfectly!!!!! WOW WOW WOW!!!"

 I have been reliving our wedding day through these photos — every laugh, interaction, and happy smile was captured with candid honesty. I truly can’t share enough positive notes that convey how great of a choice we made when hiring you. Your style, fun and fabulous personality, and organization approach was EXACTLY what we were looking for.

"Annaleisa is simply the best."

Our day was pretty wild, we had pretty crazy weather. We had hurricane winds that broke decorations and changed our plans, but throughout it all Annaleisa was calm and with such high spirits. I was so nervous that we didn't get a single good picture through shivering and even bleeding but Annaleisa is incredibly talented and we have hundreds of breath-taking photos to choose from!Annaleisa was the only person at our elopement due to the pandemic and she made us feel so comfortable and truly added to our day to make it special! My (now) husband and I hope we are able to visit Colorado again and have a chance to do another session with Annaleisa in the future!

"We had a perfect experience with Annaleisa from start to finish!"

Not only is she incredibly talented, she is also a total pro and makes you feel like you've known her forever! She did both our engagement photos and wedding photos, and although neither of us actually enjoy having our photos taken, she made it painless and fun! We cannot recommend her enough!
