About Me

Christopher Messer

Hello! I am a photographer living near Nashville, TN. I started my journey of photography at 15, taking photos for fun. After a few years and about 50 weddings later, I have teamed up with my wife Sophia to tackle weddings from two angles.

I like to take a photojournalistic point of view when practicing photography. Photographing more of what’s happening, and not trying to orchestrate it. This led to me capturing a lot of true emotional moments, and I realized that is what I love about this job. Don’t worry, I will still pose you if you need help! My goal is to make my clients feel comfortable enough in front of the camera that they pose themselves, just some subtle direction here and there.

When I’m not photographing people, I love taking landscapes and street photography. Practicing these other niches of my craft has led me to become a better photographer all around. While landscapes make me slow down and focus on one shot, street photography helps me practice getting interesting and candid interactions with people. When I transition to shooting weddings, it is all about balance of these two things. I tend to be soft spoken, and very go with the flow. I don’t like to be in the way of anything, I am very detail oriented and I definitely try not take the attention away from the couple.

When I don’t have a camera in my hand, you can find me working around cars and bikes (my third love behind photography, and my Wife).

Some of my favorite images from all around the US. Even though its not weddings, couples, or portraits, I still draw inspiration from going on these trips. Composition is something I like to work on a lot and it’s usually my deciding factor on whether or not I should take an image. How can I bring your eye into the photo?
