I wanted to take the opportunity to thank Christopher William for taking our family photos. We truly enjoyed the experience. I was worried that taking family photos on a school night at dusk in Washington, DC would be a challenge for both my 3 year old and my 8 year old. But Chris made it fun! Everyone really enjoyed being in the city for the family photo adventure!
Chris did an amazing job taking so many candid and beautiful photographs of our family in front of the Capitol building. We had a difficult time choosing which photos were truly the best. Luckily, he was instrumental in providing feedback on each of the photos. He helped us narrow down our list to the best photos of the photo shoot. The editing of
each individual photo was outstanding! After we selected the best photos, Chris also helped us create beautiful canvas prints. We placed them in our hallway in our townhouse. They are a great reminder of how much fun we had in DC taking our family photos! We would highly recommend Christopher William Photography to other families that are looking for the perfect candid photos! We know that other families will certainly appreciate their photos for years to come!!
My brothers and I wanted to give our parents a picture of all the grandchildren as a Christmas gift. Chris was very flexible about working out a time that would accommodate all three families, which is not easy. He also faced the challenge of the age range of the kids (6 months to 17 years) with ease! My brother and his fiancée were so pleased with both the quality of the pictures and Chris's relaxed manner, they hired him to be their wedding photographer as well. My parents loved the pictures and my sister-in-law and I both used the pictures in our Christmas cards.

We are so happy we found Chris to take our daughters 1st birthday photos! The original date was rained out. Chris was very flexible and acommodating to change the date and time even with his busy schedule. He worked around my daughter's nap schedule and was able to take some beautiful photos! I love how he captured our precious family moments and the details in his photos are amazing. He made our family feel comfortable in front of the camera and Chris was even willing to lie on the wet ground to get the best shot. I have recommended him to all my friends and would love to use his services again in the future!

Christopher William captured our family's genuine character in stunning images during a candid portrait session in a Capitol Hill park last Fall. Our photographs are priceless documentation of our young children's spontaneous joy, yet there's an essential quality that conveys just enough of the "it only took us two hours, a string of maniacal tantrums, three outfit changes, and more than a couple lollipop bribes to get here this morning" context to differentiate Christopher's product from those stock photos that come with the frames. Nothing is over-staged. No goofy poses. No insincere expressions. Christopher's photography looks like what you wish your iPhone camera roll looked like. And he is really personable, easy to work with, and transparent. Highly recommend!

We hired Christopher William Photography for our daughter's Quinceanera celebration. We've seen some really disastrous attempts at photography and heard terrible stories about photographers that never actually produce any of your pictures. But as soon as I spoke to Christopher, he put my mind at ease. I knew that there would be nothing to worry about. He was very professional and willing to accommodate all our needs. He was there early, which was amazing from Arlington to Stafford. He made guests, adults and children alike, feel comfortable with having their pictures taken. Our photos turned out absolutely stunning and captured beautiful moments. We will definitely be turning to Christopher for future events and family photos.
It's been a couple years since our wedding. We made so many memories that day and Chris's photos capture those memories perfectly. He knew that we wanted more candid shots -- rather than posed ones -- of our guests and the two of us throughout the day. He was able to produce exactly what we wanted and delivered the final photos in a timely manner. Not only did he do an excellent job, he also mingled well with our guests, going unnoticed as the "wedding photographer." We were so pleased with his work that last year we commissioned Christopher William to take photos at our friends' 50th birthday party. Once again, we couldn't have asked for better shots. Bravo to him and his art!

We chose Christopher William Photography because we wanted to get a memorable family photo for the kids' Grandparents as a special present. And that's just what we got! It was wonderful working with Chris! He gave us a couple of venue choices and a TON of beautiful pictures to choose from. We have three children and a dog, so it's not the easiest group! A few days after the photo shoot we received digital copies of all the photos. It couldn't have been easier! If you're looking for a family photographer, we recommend Christopher William!

Chris is a great guy and he takes beautiful photos. From start to finish, Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with. From putting our entire family (even our little guys!) at ease throughout the relaxed, easy photo shoot, to carefully selecting and editing proofs for our review, one goal animates everything he does -- his clients' complete satisfaction.
