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 »

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 »

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 »
