I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Milwaukee.
My style is fresh, colorful and full of beauty.

Weddings & Portraits

My photography style is simple, sharp, high-contrast and vibrant. During the course of a wedding, I shoot photojournalistically, but I also direct bridal and formal portraits to ensure we capture the best images from your day. See the Portfolio »

Hi, I'm Chrissy!

I have a thrill for life, love of food and addiction to chai lattes. I read myself to sleep every night and dream of someday my daughter telling me that I am the greatest woman she has ever known. read more »

We really enjoyed working with Chrissy. She was very responsive to any questions, emails, requests, etc. She is extremely organized and well planned. We had done an engagement session prior to the wedding so we felt comfortable with Chrissy the day of our wedding; however we had never met the second shooter who also turned out to be amazing. They worked well as a team and put us all at ease. Our photos turned out beautifully and captured some moments that we didn’t even know had happened

Chrissy was great. She goes way beyond what is expected. Her pictures turned out great. She made everyone feel comfortable while she was taking pictures and blended in the background when needed. When looking at all the great pictures, we constantly remarked that we couldn’t remember Chrissy running over to that spot during the ceremony (and she also seemed to cover an impressive amount of distance in short time spans). Overall, highly-recommended.

Chrissy made an amazing first impression (and she never stopped). When we first started searching for photographer, videographers, and DJs; I emailed probably over a dozen different vendors. She made the strongest first impression. From the very start she was very personable. She wanted to know our story, how we met, how long we have been together, what our plans for the wedding was, and what our photography style was. She did an amazing job with the engagement photos. Everyone loved our engagement photos and the save-the-date card. –“Amazing’, “Best we have ever seen”, “Wow”—She loved our special movie style poster request and was happy to accommodate. She did an amazing job at the wedding. Everyone loved her. She was very professional and worked well with kids and large families. Her photos were beautiful and told a story. She also got along marvelously with our videographer and DJ. They did everything they could to work together to make sure things went smoothly. Collaboration! From what I hear, they were all impressed by each other that they are recommending each other!

Everything that Chrissy did for us was amazing! She truly went above and beyond the call of duty for a wedding photographer. From going out of her way to get our engagement shots done, to sending us a special package a few weeks before the wedding, to sending us a text message the night before our wedding wishing us well for our big day – she really went the extra mile to let us know that she cared about our wedding. I could go on and on about what a great job she did! While we haven’t received our wedding photos yet (it was just 2 days ago – but I wanted to give her the review that she deserves as quickly as possible), I’m 100% confident they will turn out amazing just like our engagement pictures did! Thank you for everything, Chrissy! I highly recommend her for your wedding!

Chrissy was referred to us by a co-worker and was everything we’d hoped for and more! Not only were our wedding photos amazing, but Chrissy was so easy to work with. She was great at explaining what her role as our wedding photographer would entail, quickly responded to our questions and concerns, and kept us track during the day of our event. She was so friendly and even asked to meet with us before we considered hiring her. Never once did we feel under pressure! One of the things we liked best about Chrissy was that she captured that natural beauty of our wedding day. Her photos were quality and yet we didn’t have to hold any uncomfortable poses. It was truly a pleasure working with Chrissy and we hope to work with her again in the future!

We were so impressed with Chrissy and couldn’t have made a better choice for our wedding photographer.  She was up for anything when it came to our engagement photos and they turned out amazing-she made us feel so comfortable too.  She was also wonderful with our daughter and had so much patience with her.  When it came to our wedding day she was so organized, kept us on track with time, and we couldn’t be happier with our photos.  We had a large wedding and she was able to get candid shots of so many guests –and was so professional even while being pulled in multiple directions by people wanting their photos taken.  We can’t say enough good things about Chrissy Rose Photography and would definitely recommend her!

I am a wedding planner and I worked with Chrissy for my client’s wedding. She is such a wonderful photographer to work with. Very professional but also very personable! She is also really accommodating. For their engagement session, they did it in a snowstorm! And it turned out to be gorgeous! Also I have never seen a photographer slide under a huddle to get a great picture from the floor! Oh and I can’t forget to mention that I love her work! She is very artistic and has a great eye. My clients could not be happier…she made it so comfortable for them and they love their pictures! I look forward to working with her again.

Chrissy was the photographer for our wedding. Our pictures turned out amazing! We loved them and still do! She captured our big day and gave us perfect pictures to help us remember every moment. Thank you Chrissy for going the extra mile! Don’t hesitate to call her!

I am so happy I chose Chrissy Rose Photography for my engagement and wedding photos. She did an amazing job with both sessions and really made my (camera shy!) husband and I feel at ease in front of the camera. She was able to work within our budget and promptly delivered high quality, beautiful photos. Just a small snapshot of her professionalism: we only had an hour for photos between the ceremony and reception, and a few of the relatives were scattered, yet she was able to take charge, organize everyone, capture all the shots, while still keeping the mood light and fun. I highly recommend her and would chose her again and again.

I wanted three things for my wedding day: 1) End the day married to the love of my life. 2) Wear a beautiful dress. 3) Have AMAZING pictures I could cherish forever. After going through some of Chrissy’s photos, I completely fell in love with her work. After meeting Chrissy herself, I was one hundred percent sold. Not only did she take amazing wedding pictures, but the package included a free engagement photo session so we could get to know each other before the big day. She answered every question I could possibly come up with and doubled as “time manager” on the wedding day. I will be using Chrissy Rose Photography for all of my photo needs in the future and highly recommend her to anyone and everyone who wants beautiful pictures.

So many professional wedding photographers take beautiful photos, but few truly capture the love and personality of the couple. Chrissy “adopts” each couple as her own and brings a level of kindness and care to her profession that sets her apart. She was a joy to have around the whole day– always smiling and upbeat, despite what I know was a long day to be working. You won’t regret booking Chrissy! Beautiful photos, a wonderful woman, and a professional who honestly cares about her clients. See their engagement session »

From our initial conversations and planning, to the partnership established throughout our engagement session and constant communication, to the actual event and all of Chrissy’s creative touches…simply put…she was amazing!

Chrissy photographed a bridal shower for me and did a great job! She was so friendly to work with and never got in the way. The pictures are wonderful and I am so happy she was there to capture all of the detials!

The first time we met Chrissy was for our engagement photos and we were a little nervous. However, the moment we met Chrissy all of that was put to rest and we were instantly comfortable. Chrissy has a wonderful personality that makes working with her very easy and relaxing. Her playful attitude, creativity, and excellent attention to detail allow her to draw out great photographs. We are very pleased with Chrissy and can’t wait for her to capture our wedding day. See their engagement session »

Chrissy was an absolute joy to work with – creative, professional and inspiring! She captured my wedding day to the tee and literally handed me the perfect wedding memories. I cannot recommend her enough. I believe that wedding photography is a big decision because you are trusting your photographer to capture a moment in time that you and your fiancée have worked and planned for, sometimes years in advance. Chrissy delivered above and beyond anything I could have even hoped for! She hit everything on my shot list, and delivered hundreds of creative shots that only she could come up with. I highly recommend her work and would not hesitate to work with her again.

Chrissy was phenomenal from start to finish. We first met her through video chat (we planned our wedding from out of state) and we loved her right away. She was extremely organized, went through everything we could think of, answered questions we had, and left us knowing she was the photographer for us. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice. Anytime we emailed her a question leading up to the wedding, she would respond right away. She first took engagement photos for us the week of the wedding, and had them edited, finished, and ready to show us before our wedding day. The pictures were beautiful. The day of the wedding, with our stress levels maxed out, we never once had to worry about the photography. Chrissy was extremely calming, professional, genuinely nice, and efficient. The final wedding pictures we received were everything we hoped they would be! We highly recommend Chrissy!

Chrissy never stopped impressing us with her creativity and sensitivity to what we were looking for. Our pictures turned out AMAZING!!!! Chrissy was fantastic on our NYE wedding day. She and her assistant took care to catch all of those special moments for us with her creative touch. She even spent the ENTIRE day with us from the morning to the NYE countdown. Some of our favorite shots were the candid moments she caught during the reception. Chrissy did such a great job of knowing exactly what to capture without us having to “hold her hand” throughout the day! She comes highly recommended by us! See their wedding photographs »
