Christopher was an absolute pleasure to work with! He was very professional and responsive during the process. He answered all of my questions, and delivered the photo quickly upon receiving the payment. The photo is great quality and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect model to fit my series.
I can’t wait to work with Christopher again in the future!

Chris is a delight to work with. He is professional, responsive, and friendly. And he always answers my ridiculous questions. If he has a model he thinks I might like he always reaches out and lets me know, which I really appreciate. I wish there were more like Chris in the world!

Christopher John was a delight to work with. He was a timely communicator, kind and answered all questions I had. The photo was wonderful quality and absolutely perfect for my character as well as a perfect start to the series. I would recommend him to other authors and would definitely use him again! Thank you for being a kind human being in this crazy world, Christopher!

Love, love, LOVE working with Christopher for book cover photos.
First, he’s just genuinely a nice guy. But also, incredibly helpful. It can be overwhelming looking at dozens of galleries, but Christopher is always willing to help me narrow down my choices if I give him a starting point of an age range, general look/style or single/couple photo.
His prices are competitive, and I know his models (and Christopher) are getting paid fairly for their work.
Christopher also does a fantastic job helping to promote the authors who buy his images, and he’s genuinely thrilled whenever a book with a CJC Photography image is released to the world.
I can’t say enough good things about my experiences with CJC Photography, and I hope to be able to use his images for many more books to come.

Christopher is a pleasure to work with. He’s great with communication and his pictures are great. I have worked with Christopher on four of my books and I love the personal aspect of working with him. He takes the time to share the book cover on social media with his followers and interact with everyone. When I am at signings, everyone comments on the book images and I can’t brag about him fast enough. Thank you Christopher!! Maybe one day we will meet at a signing!

I purchased a photo for a book cover from Christopher John and he was very professional and responsive during the process. He answered any and all questions quickly and delivered the photo promptly. The photo is of amazing quality and it’s unique, which makes a beautiful book cover. He also shared the promotion when the book cover was revealed on his social media to help it get more exposure. I would definitely recommend this photographer and I would absolutely purchase another of his photos.

I purchased an image from Chris last year and had to redo the entire series to do the photo justice. The image was well received by my readers, and matched my characters perfectly. Chris is easy to work with and provides a professional service. Any time I’ve had a question, he’s been there to answer. Our collaboration was a great experience, and I’d recommend him to any author who’s looking for a stunning image for a book cover or teaser.

I first heard of Christopher through my friend Claire and started following him. Boy, am I glad I did! His talent and creativity brought so much MORE to my creative process and I fell head over heels for his vision, his professionalism, and his help in navigating purchasing my first (but not my last) custom image from him. Half the time I’m ready to hand over my wallet so I can get all of the amazing images he posts! Not only is he an amazing photographer, but he’s constantly communicating about what else I might be looking for and I absolutely adored the commentary I got as he read through the book! 🙂

I love working with Christopher! I’ve bought several photos from him, and the process was smooth and easy! I told him what I was looking for, and he directed me to the model that was perfect for my project. He has so many great photos that it is easy to get lost trying to find the perfect shot. Not that it is a hardship to look at all the beautiful models!!! Christopher is an amazing photographer and a great businessman. Working with him is an absolute pleasure. I will be back for more!

I love working with Christopher! He’s a consummate professional, always willing to go above and beyond to connect you with the perfect image for your project. He also goes above and beyond to promote the authors he works with, and he’s always asking for author input in his artistic choices. His brand is unfailingly positive and upbeat, and his eye as a photographer is excellent. Most importantly, of course, his photos sell books and make readers happy!

I had the pleasure of working with Christopher last year. He was amazing and professional throught the whole process from setting up the shoot, to shooting, to following up and promoting all of the images.

Working with Chris was a lot of fun, and he is a true professional, in how he runs his business and brand.

Working with Chris is always a fantastic experience! I’ve purchased four of Chris’s images for book covers and each image is high quality and perfect. I had a specific request for an image, and Chris went above and beyond in helping me. I can’t thank him enough for his kindness and his willingness to help indie authors achieve stunning images for their covers.
He always replies promptly and answers any questions you have cheerfully and thoughtfully. He has a diverse group of models for his images, and he’s always open to suggestions from his clients for different looks and poses.
I love working with Chris, I love the photos he captures, and I cannot recommend CJC Photography enough.
On Saturday, February 12th 2022 at 10:10 am, Anna Blakely said:
I chose to use two of Chris’s images for book covers in one of my new romantic suspense series. Both images were well-received by my readers, and they matched my characters perfectly. Chris was a joy to work with and always happy to answer my many questions. Our collaboration was a great experience, and one I’m sure will be repeated in the future!
On Friday, February 11th 2022 at 2:02 pm, Anya Summers said:
I produce multiple titles a year and as an Indie author trying to find the right image can be quite daunting. But Chris makes it easy to find spectacular images to add to my book covers. Chris is fantastic to work with too. If you’re looking for high quality images, I highly recommend working with Chris.
On Wednesday, February 9th 2022 at 12:12 pm, Avery Samson said:
I first reached out to Christopher while looking for a cover for my second book. Being very new in the world of self-publishing, I feel it was one of my best decisions. The photos are always beautiful and high quality. Christopher is a true joy to work with, always kind and helpful. His going above and beyond is what has kept me coming back. I look forward to many more years of working together. Do not miss out on everything CJC Photography has to offer.

I have seen many images over the years from Chris that have interested me, but a year ago I saw one and the story came to me. I purchased it and couldn’t be happier with it (and the story I wrote). I’ve had the pleasure of meeting him in person too at an event. He’s friendly, professional, and I highly recommend.
On Tuesday, October 12th 2021 at 8:08 am, Lynn Garcia Carmer said:
I love my cover! And that’s all because of Chris and CJC Photography. The process was seamless and drama-free. I met Chris at a conference and shared I needed an Afro Latino hero for my newest cover. He found an amazing model for me, held a shoot, produced an amazing photo–and did it all in record time.
I couldn’t be happier.
I highly recommend working with Chris.
Don’t sleep on CJC Photography!! <3
On Monday, October 4th 2021 at 7:07 pm, Jeris Jean said:
From an author’s perspective, I think Christopher is amazing. There are always gorgeous images to choose from – so much so that I want to create characters just to use the book cover photography at times!
Not only that, he’s always quick to respond to questions, provides excellent suggestions based on what I’m looking for, and is just delightful to work with overall.
Talented and organized and fantastic energy. Highly recommend.
On Monday, October 4th 2021 at 4:04 pm, Jeff Violette said:
I have been fortunate enough for the opportunity to work with Chris 3 times now, doing both solo, and couple/due shoots with him. He is extremely professional, and is an incredibly talented photographer. He is easygoing which makes shooting with him feel very natural, which shows in his work. He understands that it is a collaboration, and he is always open to any ideas that you have that you would like to capture. I consider myself lucky to have worked with Chris 3 times so far, and hopefully many more shoots to come!
On Saturday, October 2nd 2021 at 6:06 pm, Emily Gray said:
Before I met Christopher, I was using stock images for my covers. Christopher was recommended to me by a fellow author and friend. She encouraged me to see what he had to offer, and honestly, I was blown away by the level and variety of fantastic images and models on his site. His photos speak for themselves. But what makes working with him such a wonderful experience is Christopher’s commitment to his customers. He goes out of his way to connect and interact with them. His professionalism and amiable nature make him a joy to work with and will keep me returning to him for my photography needs.
On Thursday, September 30th 2021 at 3:03 pm, Ethan Kidd-Oyakhilome said:
I met Christopher through Instagram after seeing a bunch of work he had done with some friends of mine. We spoke and he mentioned that he had a few ideas but wanted to wait for just the right moment…
Fast forward a little bit and he contacted me saying the time was right. We had an amazing shoot and as of my time of writing this I am now on the cover of 3 publications coming soon!
Christopher is an artist who knows exactly what he’s doing. If you’re fortunate enough to work with him than know that you’re in very good hands
On Thursday, September 30th 2021 at 11:11 am, E.H. Lyon said:
I’m extremely lucky that I’m covering an entire upcoming 4 book series with CJC photos, and it completely makes the stories come alive. Christopher was super patient while I went through his insane collection of photos, and it was a hard task as there are so many great photos and looks to choose from. Not for the faint of heart either. Have you seen the models he uses? It was also so refreshing to have easy-to-sort through shoots and super-fast response time, everything a complete breeze. Plus Christopher is just a pure delight to work with and so involved in the Romance book community which are all complete bonus points.
On Wednesday, September 29th 2021 at 6:06 pm, Linny Lawless said:
I’ve been fortunate to meet Christopher at a book signing event in 2018, and it’s been a great pleasure to work with him ever since. He has that warm smile, friendly personality, and charm. I don’t usually like to be in front of a camera, but I felt comfortable enough to have Christopher take some photos of me. I’ve worked with Christopher several times with having some of his gorgeous models grace my book covers and I’m looking forward to working with him again in the near future.

It has been an absolute delight to work with Christopher on licensing images for covers. He has an amazing eye and his work is always top of the line. The variety of models he works with is always stellar. But what makes working with Christopher the most amazing experience is how wonderful and kind he is. He works so hard for his authors and his models, and really takes that extra step to go above and beyond. I know I’ll be working with him for a long time to come, and I always recommend him to anyone looking for exclusive images. Thank you for all you do Christopher!

I had a blast working with Christopher John. He had so many photos in his portfolio that fit my story that it was hard to pick one. I literally fell in love with the one featuring Alex that my publisher and I chose. Plus, I didn’t expect he was SO nice and lovely to work with. I Highly recommend him.

Christopher John is so easy to work with. He’s responsive and helpful in leading authors to the model or pose that most fits their vision. Of course, a plethora of gorgeous models is helpful, but his talent and vision for poses lets them shine and fills the needs of authors like me. He also supports authors after the sale on his own platform. I will be a repeat customer and recommend him to other authors.
On Tuesday, April 6th 2021 at 7:07 pm, Jeanne St. James, USA Today Bestselling Romance Author said:
As an author, it’s important to pick the right model and the right mood of a photo to represent our character/story. We also need to pick the right photographer since they become part of our publishing team. Chris not only does great work, he’s an absolute JOY to deal with. My most recent book has one of his photos on the cover and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again (and again). I don’t think twice about referring him and his work to other authors.

He knows what his client’s interests and needs are, and goes above and beyond to make their cover dreams a reality. He supports his authors whole heartedly, and is just a decent human being I love working with and supporting with my business. I will partner with CJC Photography many more times in the future.

On Thursday, November 14th 2019 at 8:08 pm, Susan Alexander said:
As an author, covers are super important. We need to convey the essence of the story from the cover. It’s our best tool for a reader to decide whether or not to look further or buy the book. And Chris does a fantastic job of capturing the mood of a couple or a model, the lighting, and the pose. So much goes into getting the shot right. I’ve been more than pleased with Chris and I highly recommend him. He takes his business a step beyond just the photography and works with authors to help promote their work, and he loves what he does and I love working with him.
On Monday, November 11th 2019 at 12:12 pm, Kristine Dugger said:
What can I say about Chris? I absolutely adore him. I have been wanting to work with him for sometime. I would search his gorgeous pictures to see if one met my theme for my books. And then it happened, I found several excellent picture that fit my character. It was a super hard decision. Chris was very patient with me. Choosing a picture is not a simple process. I finally decided on a picture and he worked with me on a payment plan. This is where he was even more patient with me. I tend to be flighty sometimes. His little nudges about payment were greatly appreciated. He understood my crazy life of an author/mom/dietitian. Once the picture was paid off, I got the picture sent to me in no time at all. Then when the book was published, he shares everywhere he can. That is much appreciated. I would love to work with Chris again. Trust me, I stalk all of his posting of his pictures.

Chris is such an easy photographer to work with. He sends photo files in a very timely manner and even offers payment plans. He is also very accommodating to what the author is looking for in regards to models, poses, and even what the model wears. I can let him know what I’m looking for with a cover concept and within minutes, he has a few models for me to take a look at. He is simply a joy to work with!

It was a year ago that I connected with Chris. My first book was just published with his amazing photo on the cover. I can’t say enough wonderful things about the process with him. He made this first time author feel comfortable. We have become friends and I have made two more cover selections for upcoming projects. His creativity sparks the same in me. I love working with him and am excited to see what collaborations we can do in 2020.

Christopher was an absolute sweetheart to work with and so was Jamieson. This is my first project with Christopher and I can say it won’t be the last. He went above and beyond to meet the needs of both Ann Lister and myself for our upcoming project, making something that can be rather stressful to be exciting and fun.

Chris is an amazing talent and a joy to work with. I met Chris at a Toronto book signing four years ago and wanted to work with him immediately. I found him to be charming, fun, and a true professional. Four years and seven covers later, I can still say the same. As an author, you can trust Chris to make your vision in the pages come to life on the cover. Check out his extensive portfolio and see for yourself.

Chris has the eye of a tiger and a hawk combined. He knows exactly where, when, and how to make a picture to the best of its abilities. He knows how to work a camera better than I know how to work my own phone. He has a vision for every shoot i’ve done with him and he has beyond succeeded. Hands down best photographer I’ve ever met and worked with. Not only is he amazing to work with, he’s the Michael Jordan of photography.

I LOVE working with Chris! Got to know him through a recommendation through another photographer and suuuuper glad I did. We got 5 covers together and that’s hopefully just the beginning! I always feel comfortable around him and never pushed to do anything I don’t want to. Wonderful human being inside and out.

I’ve seen Chris’s work out there for quite some time now and come to know many friends that have worked with him. I’ve heard nothing but positive things and had been dying to work with him!

Very professsional, amazing talent, and very kind and friendly! Whether you’re an experienced model or it’s your first time shooting you NEED to work with CJCPhotography!

I’ve been shooting with Chris for almost a year now and each time we get more comfortable and produce better photos. We’ve already got 5 book covers in the making and we are still climbing. I met him through our mutual friend, Brock Grady, and shot with him in Miami as well as Tampa!
He’s a very nice guy and is always prepared with clothes to style and ideas to shoot. It’s always a pleasure to work with him and I hope we continue to make book cover magic together.

Chris is such a wonderful talent!
His eye for portraits is effortlessly deep. His work is consistently full of emotion and depth; his edits are always crisp, eye catching, and lingering <3
He is SUCH a sweet soul to be around—he has a light energy about him that radiates to those around him, making working together feel like fun, not work.
10/10 would reccommend

I’m only on my third photo from Christopher and I’m addicted!! He knows exactly what I need and how to deliver. He is patient and friendly when it comes to the business side of things. But–the pictures! He is able to get magic out of these beautiful people. They may be photogenic but he brings something extra out in them–extra smile, smolder, and ab definition.
You won’t be sorry did business with Christopher, he’s a delight!

I never know exactly what I’m looking for when I want to purchase an image for one of my book covers. I have a loose idea but I really need an image that sparks a feeling. The feeling that it was made for one of my books. Christopher has the ability to shoot an image and always ignite that feeling for me. His undeniable talent is showcased in every single image that he produces. At times it’s often difficult to choose just one image. I am so thankful to have a CJC image for one of my books and cannot wait to have many more. Not only will you get a photo that is incredible, but you will also get next level customer service and friendship. Here’s to our first cover together and I look forward to many more to come!

I’ve just bought my seventh photo from Chris and from the first to the last, he’s been an absolute dream to work with. Responsive, professional, and a superb photographer to boot!
When I needed a redhead, I turned to Chris. At times I thought I’d never find what I was looking for but Chris would not give in until he’d found the perfect model for my book cover – and boy did he! The custom shoot we did together was awesome and so much fun. Chris kept me informed the whole way through, sending pictures live from the shoot so I could have input into what I wanted.
Highly highly highly recommend.

I’ve enjoyed working with Chris on photographs for my upcoming book covers. He’s always friendly and has taken the time to get to know me.

WOW! That’s the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the first photo I ended up purchasing from Christopher at CJC.

I look forward to working with Chris on future projects. He’s got a great eye for detail when it comes to his shots. Well worth keeping an eye on all his current shoots.

His photos are top notch and high quality. Don’t be afraid to ask him anything. He’ll help you make the best decision for your book cover.
I would most definitely buy other shots from him in the future.
He goes above and beyond by promoting the authors and models he works with. You will not go wrong choosing one of his shots for your book cover.

CJC – Christopher John is Amazing! I didn’t even know I was looking for an image for my Love Divide cover. Actually, I had a stock picture all ready to go, but a couple PM’s later, I knew I had to have one of his.
Not only is Christopher John crazy talented, his ideas are unique and inspiring. Perfection caught in a moment.
Friendly, honest this guy is nothing, but professional. A photographer who not only cares about his models but takes pride in each and ever photo. Following the process and supporting the author along the way.

I’ve gotten a good line up that I am proud to have grace the covers up my upcoming books. I also love how he sees a shot and just knows it will work for something I’ve mentioned in the past. He has a great eye for detail and I can not wait to show off his fantastic work to all!

I got to know Chris online quite a while before I purchased a cover image from him. During that time I found his professionalism and work ethic to be second to none. This and his incredible talent helped me to decide to collaborate on a book cover and I’m so glad I did. The image I purchased was perfect for my Paranormal Romance. I’ve always found Chris to be highly responsive to messages and very helpful. Not to mention that he is just an all-round good person.

I would like to start by saying that Chris has most definitely made a tremendous impact on my modeling career. I have shot a couple times with CJC and every single time we get better and better. Most comfortable, relaxing and unique photo shoot i have experienced in my career. We’ve become great friends through the industry and i can honestly say its been a pleasure!

I met Chris for the first time while he was in Tampa this year. We scheduled to meet and shoot for the first time on the same day. Before he came down we developed a good relationship through social media and I was certain he was an all around great person. Despite the harsh conditions we experienced during the shoot, Chris found a way to make it work and produce some amazing footage. I can’t wait to shoot with Chris again next year.

Together we have created a multitude of different published work that varies from book covers to magazine publications. Not only is Chris one of the kindest, most caring individuals I know but he is also incredibly creative, comforting and not to mention hilarious. Chris makes sure that every one of his clients has complete creative freedom and is willing to do whatever it takes to make sure they receive the shots they are looking for. I know that big things will happen for Chris in his future career and I am blessed to have gotten the chance to work with such an incredible photographer.

I first talked to Chris about shooting years ago. So our first shoot was years in the making, you could say. But, man, it didn’t take long after that first shoot for us to shoot again. What can I say? The shots are some of the best I’ve ever had. From the headshot’s I can hand to casting directors to the super-‘modely’ underwear photos. My only regret is that we didn’t shoot sooner! Chris’ biggest strength is making a lot out of nothing. Whether it’s a plain black backdrop in his house or some stone steps at an old mossy outdoor theater. Your shots with Chris are always going to be of the first you show to anyone.

From the first time I had met Chris, he was a very positive, nice, fun guy to work with. There was not a time during which we shot, where I felt uncomfortable. The more I got to know Chris, the closer we had even become as friends. He is a really good guy who happens to also be an incredible photographer. While aiming to develop new heights in my modeling career, I hope Chris is a part of every step I take and only continues to grow and expand his work to which I already find so amazing. I recommend any person to not hesitate working with him.

Chris and I have known each other for quite a long time now. He was an emerging and aspiring photographer out of Boston and I was out of Florida. We set up a shoot in Miami and the rest is history.
We have shot numerous times in different cities and have 8 covers together so far. I have even shot him as a model for a cover. We have built a greatly successful business relationship and I think we are just
At times like these, words don’t do justice to what the mind thinks about someone. However, I will try to make the two match as close as possible.
I am a firm believer that success goes much passed that of awards and monetary gain. A great portion of success relies on the character of the one has embarked on the journey. Christopher embodies the essence of a humble yet confident person who is motivated to do what it takes to become great while staying true to himself and his values. His mind is sound and his actions do the talking. He is one the hardest workers I have seen in a long time. The effort he puts into honing all of his skills and even getting out of the comfort zone to acquire new ones is a sight to be seen. He is a force to be reckoned with. I have no doubt in my mind that he can accomplish anything he wants to do.
I am really proud of what we have accomplished so far and it only makes me that much more excited to see what even greater things we can do in the future.

I’m a firm believer that everybody comes into your life for a reason whether that reason has meaning behind it, or whether it is simply by chance. If it wasn’t for my older brother (David Santa Lucia) for heavily convincing me to participate in his photoshoot, then I would’ve never had the opportunity to shoot with Chris. I had absolutely no idea I even wanted to become a model until I realized how adept Chris was at capturing the perfect images. Right off the bat, Chris emitted a strong sense of friendliness and gave off an intuitive persona where he gave me the impression that he was an expert when it comes to capturing high quality images. Lets just say whoever Chris shoots with is well-taken care of. It is a privilege to shoot with Chris because his images are superb and are as professional as it gets. He supports anyone he works with and makes a genuine effort to stay apart of their lives. Once you’re done shooting with him it simply isn’t the end, but rather just the beginning. I keep in contact with Chris almost on a daily basis and the positivity that surrounds him is boundless. I am more than happy to say that I am extremely blessed to have experienced my first photoshoot with such a great photographer, who works very hard and is persistent with the work that he does.

You’ll meet a lot of people out there in the world and consciously or subconsciously file them into different categories – let me help you… make sure you hang onto Chris.
I met Chris a few years ago while living in the Northeast, and we never had the opportunity to work together directly until very recently in Miami. I had moved south and Chris just happened to be in town and booking up his schedule rapidly with shoots, and we were able to connect and see if we couldn’t get something to come together.
I was a little hesitant at first, not due to anything other than my own having taken a long time away from being in front of a camera, but damn, we were both a little surprised! With many photographers, I feel like it takes a shoot or two to warm up, but not with Chris. He’s a super kind guy, very genuine, and he has the eye for a viewfinder and the success to prove it.
Together we locked down a book cover, pending release (as of 10/12/15) and a few AWESOME portraits to hold highlight spots in our portfolios.
If you have the opportunity to do so, definitely get into this guy’s light. 😀

He always creates the best images making whoever is lucky enough to be in his lenses look amazing . He is a very talented photographer in my eyes and I really enjoy working with him . He also supports his models in their lives without asking anything in return . He isn’t just a photographer, but a great friend who will support everyone he meets . I’m very thankful for working with him and for all the support he’s given me .

I am so grateful to have been able to work with Chris when he visited Miami, FL. He is so easy and fun to work with. In the end that’s the true recipe for great photos. After two shoots we’ve landed multiple book covers. His work just keeps getting better and better. I love it!! I can’t wait to shoot with him again!!

Chris was very easy to work with, there was never any pressure to get the perfect shot, the perfect shot would just happen. Although he likes to have fun, it is in the most professional nature, he was always asking for collaboration from me as well which provided for a much more creative atmosphere between the two of us! I can’t wait to work with him again!

I am an author who has used CJC Photography for two book covers now. Christopher is not only a great photographer but an awesome person. If you are looking for high quality, amazing images, from a professional as well as a genuinely nice individual, then you’ve found the right person by choosing Christopher. I look forward to a long author/photographer relationship with CJC.

I think the first time I talked to Chris was through model mayhem a couple years ago. We had always talked about shooting and we just never could find the right time to make it happen. Finally this past winter we were got to meet up in NYC. I truly enjoyed my time shooting with him. He’s definitely one of the most friendly and easy going photographers I’ve shot with. His photography speaks for itself as he continues to land book cover after book cover. He even was able to hook me up with a book cover job, which we shot in New York and turned out awesome.

Chris was amazing to work with. Very respectful and mindful of both what I wanted the images to look like and what the potential for the should could be. He had great ideas, and all the images that I got back were beyond my expectation. He is a true professional. Would definitely work with Chris again!

Chris was great to work with! He was very easy going, but still focused on great images. I was very comfortable shooting anything he had in mind. He had great ideas. I would definitely love to work with him again and recommend him to other models and anyone who needs a photographer! I hope to see you on set again, Chris!

Chris is a true pleasure to work with as he is efficient, creative, and prompt. Three traits I absolutely seek when hiring vendors and/or resources for my custom invitation and event planning business. I first hired Chris in 2012 to do a photo shoot of my custom invitations and stationery for my future website launch. I was more than overjoyed with the photos he captured. Chris can do it all — from inanimate object to model! My business’ website will officially be launched in September 2014, and I have Chris to thank as a fellow entrepreneur, friend, and creative for inspiring me to never give up on my dreams and talent. I unequivocally offer my highest recommendation for Chris and CJC Photography. We will continue to do business for years to come!

Chris has been incredible to work with! Having never met before our shoot, he made me feel comfortable and we could easily converse. His work and creativity has led me to getting some great exposure from Boston to NY, online and in magazine. I definitely look forward to working with Chris again!

Chris is not only a fantastic photographer, but he is also one of the nicest people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and working with! During my shoot with Chris , he made me feel comfortable and relaxed which you don’t always get from other photographers. The shots he took of me just blew me away and I cannot wait to shoot with him again!!

We really enjoyed working with Chris and are extremely happy with our engagement pictures. Chris made the process so easy and gave us the flexibility to choose the locations and poses where we felt most comfortable. As two “camera shy” people, Chris ensured that the entire photo shoot felt so natural and effortless that we barely even noticed the camera. All of our family and friends were excited to receive our pictures as gifts and we look forward to working with Chris again in the future.

It was a true pleasure working with Chris. I’m fairly new to the modeling world and he has taken time out of his day to help me to promote myself and push me toward bigger and better things. I truly look forward to working with him again and I would recommend him to anyone looking to work with a photographer of a higher caliber. Great photographer and a truly great guy.

Chris is one of the up in coming photographers in the industry. He will be a Mike Ruiz or a Luis Rafael in no time. If you want stunning images hit this guy up. Top notch, very professional and a hell of a guy to boot! Thanks for the great photos Chris. Hope to see you soon!

I have been doing shoots with Chris for the past year and he is a pleasure to work with. I feel very comfortable and can be myself the whole time. He is professional and we collaborate very well. His willingness to try new ideas and experiment is exciting and produced our nighttime pool shoot and Harley motorcycle shoot. I have been published in several magazines which I credit Chris for much of, including the cover of Smokescreen Magazine, and features in Next Level Magazine and Always Therro Magazine. He is motivated and is willing to work with your schedule. He recently did a senior picture session with my brother, within the circumstances I believe the pictures came out great! Chris made my dreams a reality using his professional and interpersonal skills. I would definitely recommend him as your next photographer!

Chris is a wonderful person, very easy to get along with, when hes behind the camera he creates remarkable and unreplaceable images. I have worked with many photographers and he is beyond the best, he goes the extra mile to help a person, as long as the model is motivated, he is motivated; which is hard to find. Beyond a photographer; Chris has became a good friend of mine and I recommend anyone who wants to get into modeling to work with him.

I’ve worked with Chris on numerous shoots. His enthusiasm and creativity make him so easy and enjoyable to work with. He always welcomes my input and we work really well together in collaborating ideas. He has gotten me published in a variety of fashion magazines and I always love the end product he creates. Check out his work- it’s all amazing!

i have done many shoots and modeling is a passion of mine, And when i say Chris is one of the best most professional photographers i have ever worked with i am not even a little bit short with the truth, first time meeting him and right away we shared laughs, makes you feel very comfortable and respected. i highly recommend anyone who is a pro in the modeling industry or who is just started out to work with Chris ! Before our shoot was over we were already planning another one, yes i can not wait to work with him again, Great photographer who puts passion into his work with also nothing short on giving the model everything they need to better themselves, Thank you Chris.

I’ve recently worked with Chris for the very first time without meeting him prior to our shoot. Chris was professional, friendly & creative. Easily meshed well with him and our pictures just go to show what can happen when youve got 2 minds on the same page. Can’t wait for the next shoot!

We used Chris over the summer for our family pictures with our then 7 month old son. Chris was professional and energetic. He was able to capture some great shots and even made sure he caught our baby smiling! We couldn’t be happier with the pictures we ended up with and we will certainly be looking to Chris for future family photo sessions!

Received our family photos from Chris today and could not be happier ! Chris was excellent to work with – professional, great sense of humor and very patient!
Would highly recommend his services for anyone looking for a photographer. My only problem now will be choosing what to frame for our mantel !

Chris has been a part of some huge milestones of my life and has captured each one of them perfectly. I have been able to enjoy and relax each one of my special days (maternity shoot, baby shower, newborn shoot, son’s first birthday) without having to miss one single moment. We started out as dear friends and now I admire him as an artist and hardworking professional. He will make each client feel comfortable and at ease and I promise you, you will be pleased with your beautiful photos!

Photographing with Chris was SUCH a great time! Thanks so much for everything! Chris does an amazing job, is extremely professional, and fun to work with! I thought almost two hours with a five year old, a nine month old, and a five month old would get the best of him… But the hours were full of laughs! Chris truly knows how to make everyone feel comfortable — and anxious people like myself are quickly satisfied with “sneak peaks” within 48 hours! I said it before, and I’ll say it again – HIGHLY recommended! I absolutely will be keeping in-touch for all my photography needs! My expectations were far exceeded – an my wallet, still very fat!

Chris is one of the first places I look for an exclusive photo – he’s a fantastic photographer and a wonderful person to work with. I love the diversity of his portfolio. He’s also wonderful about sharing my books with cover photos by him which is always appreciated. I’m always happy when I can get a new CJC photo!
