Hi, I’m Chase. I want to give you beautiful photos to keep and share.
I live in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island in Washington with my girlfriend Emma and my dog Carlos. I have one sister, my dearest Devon. I was born in Toronto and have lived in New York, Indianapolis, Dallas, and Los Angeles.
I find authenticity and beauty in documentary photography. I want you to recognize and appreciate yourself and your loved ones in my photographs.
I love weddings. I will go anywhere to photograph them. I will probably cry at yours. I also love to play the harp, ride my bike, and watch movies. I'm always excited to hit the road and shoot from coast to coast, from big cities to small towns. So whether you need a photographer for a local project or you're looking for someone to capture the essence of a far-flung destination, I'm here to help.
I understand that many people are not comfortable in front of the camera, but I promise to make the experience fun and joyful. I prioritize making my clients feel comfortable and enjoy the experience of being photographed.
My work has been featured in The New York Times, for Universal Music Group, and for Mason Jar Music.
I was trained at the Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at NYU Tisch (BFA 2018).

I owe a lot to Kim Bamberg. Many of the weddings you see on my website are the result of my second-shooting for Kim. She is kind, brilliant, talented, and very funny.
Emma and Wiley are geniuses with beautiful visions and a beautiful place. I was fortunate to photograph their wedding at their own venue.
Kathryn and Roberto have extremely good taste and are dedicated to bringing the community together. Their store is very good. I like chocolate with hazelnuts in it.
Annabella Boatwright is a brilliant, thoughtful, and endlessly inventive artist. She is a skillful painter, carver, and printer, and is available for commission. She designed my logo!
Jon Seale is a generous, clever, and wise man who will mastermind an adventure through the city just for you, or produce your next record.
Nick and Jamie are two cool guys with an awesome van and all the good stuff. They are highly experienced event managers and care deeply about their work.
