Testimonials

Christopher String is a sincere pleasure to work with. Upon meeting him, he really makes whoever he is photographing feel at ease, and directs his subject in a very fluid manner; his photos are exquisite!

Each album I’ve seen of his tells a candid story and steers clear of the traditional “posed look.” As a wedding/event planner in NYC, and someone who interacts with photographers on a frequent basis, Chris is at the top of my list of favorites and I would recommend him to anyone. I knew I could trust him to capture the day in the exact narrative I was looking for, and sure enough, he did just that.

From Amy (née Morimoto) and Erwan Bonnaud’s Wedding

Since I first shot with Chris in 2011 for Judith Ripka he has remained one of my favorite photographers. Not only for his signature style but because of the vision behind the lens. He always pushes me to take things further than just a basic pose, all while gently directing and coaxing out the best side of me. You will be given your most flattering, and timeless pictures with Chris. He is professional, reliable, and an artist in every sense. You can also expect a finished product in a timely manner.

From Megan McInerney

“I went with Christopher String Photography for my wedding last month. He much surpassed me and my husband’s expectations.  Not only was he confident behind the lens, he also made us feel comfortable while taking pictures that reflected moments in time and our personalities.  As an expecting bride, I felt beautiful and proud of the photos themselves.  We are satisfied with the service, experience and product.  I would definitely recommend Christopher String Photography for any event.”

About

About me:
My name is Christopher String and I am your photographer, by the end of all of this we’ll be more than just two strangers. We’ll be two people connected by hours of creating something new and exciting together!

When not in front of the camera I am always trying out new hobbies and seeking new ways to challenge myself.
One of my latest efforts to give back to the community is a project I’m fond of called, Phillysurfcrew.org, an organization dedicated to promoting stewardship of the environment, passing the love of surfing onto others through teaching, and driving community engagement through outreach and collaboration.

What kind of photography do you do:
While it might sound like a catch-all, I really do enjoy exploring photography in many of its different forms and focuses. From photographing children for acting and modeling headshots to travel photography (new to me!), down to weddings and surf photography there are so many different directions to take and I’m intent on exploring all of them. For those of you with a project that’s kind of out there or unorthodox, I’m always interested in being a part of it! Out of the box assignments pique my interest and provide a challenge that really drives innovation!
Let’s create:
Whether it’s elevated lifestyle and fashion photography, a wedding, or even children’s photography you can depend on myself and my team of second shooters to create images that will travel with you for the rest of your life and generations to come. I pride myself on blending a fashion forward eye with elegance and natural emotion to create imagery that showcases intimacy, personality, and depth.

Join me while we create something new!
