Since Chris Leavitt Photography was founded in 1973, I have met with every couple to help plan their wedding day. Yes, I do take wedding photography seriously. These are the images that will bring back your fabulous memories for the rest of your life!

Let's set a time to meet and talk about your wedding. Some wedding dates can book full a year or more in advance, so it is important that we get together soon. Weekday, evening and weekend appointments are available, and I will find a time that works for your schedule.

Chris Leavitt

Chris Leavitt has pursued the art of photography since his early school days. The northwest Washington native began his professional career in 1973, and now specializes in portrait and wedding images created on location in the U.S. and Canada.

These images hang in homes around the world, with the Chris Leavitt signature in the corner. The creative process begins long before Chris picks up the camera. Extensive time is dedicated to each client for planning and consultation. All aspects of the portrait session or wedding day are discussed including location, cosmetics, and attire. Colors are chosen to complement the decor of the rooms in which the images will hang.

Chris Leavitt's goal as a portrait artist, is to create images full of personality. Unique images that speak of life-style, relationships, and love. His ability to work with his subjects and create these lasting images is truly a gift. Let him share this gift with you!

From Our Website

But that doesn't mean he's old and stale. On the contrary. Chris was doing cool effects like selective color and framing images using "the rule of thirds" (you'd be surprised how many images you really love use this) before it was cool. This, in fact, makes him hipster. What it does mean, though, is that you aren't getting a fly-by-night outfit or your crazy uncle to capture the most important moments of your life. You are getting a tried and true artist who knows a great photograph, and knows how to coax the things that matter most to you into your portrait.

The links on this page will show you the variety and creativity that are possible in the different styles and subjects of portrait art. But one thing they all have in common is that they are an authentic peek into their subjects' lives, loves and personalities. Take a look and see what we mean.
