we're the team that has your back

Guided by our passion for the craft, we want to help you discover your own style & identity as a couple. 

Ever since I was a kid I've been obsessed with capturing images. I was the kid always making skits & home videos with my friends and sister. 

When I was 12, my grandma gifted me my first "professional" camera. I was 18 when my aunt invited me to help her photograph a wedding. There was a moment during that reception where I captured a hug between the groom & his new stepson. That's the moment I realized the importance of photography. 

From then, I continued shooting weddings throughout my time in film school. I wanted to learn everything I could about visual storytelling. I met some great people during my time in college- including my freshman year resident advisor, Tyler. Eventually, he would become my best friend and coworker when we were hired at a media company together. 

Working within my career field, alongside my best friend, felt like a dream come true. But then, in 2022 I unexpectedly lost my job. It felt like a disaster. My wife & I sat on the couch that day & just wondered what we would do next. With nothing left to lose, we decided now was the time to start my own team. We wanted to build something beautiful out of the wreckage. That's where Shipwrecked Creative came in. 

Hey, I'm Chris

"We had a great time shooting our wedding with Shipwrecked!" 

Chris was professional and fun. He kept up good conversation with us so we didn't feel awkward posing, and did a great job working with all of my nieces and nephews (15 kids is a lot to wrangle). 10/10 would recommend!
