Testimonials -

Have taken MANY photos with Chris!! What can I say.....Amazing ART!! Chris made sure to get a wide variety of poses. He made sure my daughter was comfortable and at ease in front of the camera and made it fun for her. Once I saw the pictures I was so happy with the results. Instead of the same old poses Chris made sure to bring out my daughters personality and character in each shot. He was also very helpful with colors and accesories, making sure to notice qhat would work with each pose and look. I recommend Believe Photography 100 percent to anyone who want a quality, fun and eye catching Art!!

I have been to the National American Miss pageant for 3 years and every year Believe has incredible photos from it. Chris seems to know just the right place to shoot so that he can get the best angel to capture the one moment in time that only last for a brief second. I look forward to seeing his photos year after year and he never let's a sole down. I didnt know until this year that he doesn't charge for them and that means alot. I play around with photography and realize how much work it takes after the photo is taken and for Chris to provide all of his shots from NAM for free is incredible. His headshots are amazing as well and I only wish that we lived closer to have them done by Believe. I don't ever write reviews but I want to give credit to a place that is due. Thank you Chris for your hard work and dedication to our NAMily.

Chris has a special eye when it comes to photography! You will never be disappointed and he takes his time to get just the right photos. He goes the extra mile to make sure you get just what you are looking for. He works so great with the little ones having patients and making them laugh to get that true real smile. He is easy to work with and his communication is always great! He truly loves what he does and you can tell with the beautiful photos you get.

Great photos each and every time! I love Chris, he's a very talented photographer and as a photographer I see the detail and time he's takes in his work. I still haven't figured out how he gets the shots he does without sitting up front, but he does it.. Hes amazing!

I have followed Chris's pageant photos for years and I can say he is the best in the business at capturing the moment! His headshots are incredible and I love how he doesn't just take photos he actually brings them to life. He's great with little and older girls and this is something you don't see everyday. I wouldn't have anyone else shoot my kids pageant photos or headshots!

I had an AMAZING time shooting with Chris and I absolutely loved my hair and makeup Krystal did for me, she had me looking like a movie star ? They’re both very warm and kind people. They made me feel right at home and encouraged me a lot. Chris was very helpful in offering his professional opinion for my pageant headshots, and even helped me post. Krystal helped prep me on set which I found very helpful, to ensure the pictures to be perfect and no awkward hair in face moments. I truly loved their energy and it was a great price too. The quality of the pictures are beautiful and highly professional

I have absolutely loved working with Believe Photography as both a Director and a pageant mom. The stage shots they capture are priceless and a stunning remembrance of the special time each contestant is on the stage. Beyond that, they are extremely professional and very easy to work with. I recommend using them, whether you are looking for a photographer as a Director or as a pageant parent.

I have and continue to work with Chris on multiple shoots assisting with H&M over the years. His photography is beyond incredible, equally important to me is how he interacts with his clients and knows how to bring out the best in his client froml a seasoned modeling pro to the most shy. He is great at making everyone feeling confident and always leave having a FUN shoot. He truly has a passion and heart for what he does which

Chris takes his time and makes sure that each and every person he does photography for is happy with their results. He is patient, kind but most of all extremely skilled. I can't even begin to think of the times he has put things on hold to make sure someone who reached out last minute could have their photos done before their deadline. When this happens he still will take his time to get the right headshot even if it means being in the studio until 11 at night. On top of the photos he takes he spends a lot of time behind the computer editing to get the perfect look. He is a fun loving guy giving his all using a skill that he is passionate about and not only that this guy eats, sleeps and breathes pageantry! So, if he is at a pageant event best believe he is going to have his camera and will capture the most amazing shots of your child (or you). I look at his pictures and am amazed at how he captures some moments that you wonder how on earth did you know to snap a picture at that very moment. He donates his time taking the shots and editing them and passes them on for free. Now that is some true love to pageantry and the girls/families.

I need a photographer for my event at short notice. I needed ten headshots of my group and photos of the event in 2 days and Chris was there. He took care of everything and my group and I were very happy with his work. As a coordinator I don't always have time to do everything and trusting someone can be stressful. I am happy to give this reveiw because I don't know what I would've done without his help.

Believe Photography is amazing! Just one look at the photos that he took at NAM Nationals and you know they are top notch. The NAM national jr teen crowning photo is to die for and so clear you can see her tears.

I have followed Chris's journey of the arts since we were teenagers and I can't imagine anyone better with capturing the moment. He has truly been gifted with it and it has always been that way. It's no surprise that he has become one of the best photographers in the pageant business. Hes got my vote as well. He is more than talented hes gifted!

If I could choose one photographer to take my photos on stage or in a studio believe would be for both. Theres really nothing else to say but, beautiful and very talented. I don't think anyone he's ever taken photos of would disagree.

A couple of years ago I was told by a girlfriend of mine to look Facebook because she tagged a picture of my daughter on stage during the NAM National pageant. The it was! I didn't know who took it but I was so thankful! Later I realized it was Chris from Believe Photography. I messaged him and asked him could I buy it and Chris immediately emailed to me for free! This review is the least that I could do to show you my gratitude Chris. YOUR INCREDABLE! That was the last time she walked on stage before she went off to college and I have a beautiful memory hanging on my wall today because of you. Thank you

I nominated Believe Photgraphy because I have been watching his works for years on Facebook. I absolutely adore his event photos as well as his headshots. When I look at them I feel like I could touch the person they are so crisp. I am a big fan of photography and I wish I knew how he captures the moments and brings stills to life. He's incredible.

I have never been his client but I have seen his lovely work. He does the most amazing stage shots I have ever seen. I don't know how he knows when to push the button on the camera to take a picture because some of the photos he has taken you feel like you are there in person. Just like his coaching work with Believe Consulting I feel that this is the perfect name for a company because when you believe anything is possible.

I won my state and placed Top 3 in the Nation with my headshot! Chris and Krystal came out and took care of our entire group of girls and it really paid off. They are very professional in how they listen to your needs and I couldn't be more pleased with the work that they do in all aspects. Chris's photography style is incredible and amazingly sharp. Great quality, price and service has sold me on being a customer for years to come.

Believe Photos are amazing!! There are a lot of photographers out in the industry, but the clarity and pure ability to capture moments is a skill that I think you were born with. The professional way that he deals with people is great as well, I even received my proofs by the time I had gotten home from the shoot. My daughters really look forward to our shoots now the we have them taken by Chris. Two of my girls are competing next year and we look forward to working with Believe.
