CHRIS WALTER PHOTOGRAPHY

Tell us about your business?
I am Chris Walter, the proud owner and lead photographer of a premier wedding photography business in Geelong. With years of experience capturing the most precious moments of couples’ lives, I have honed my skills to deliver timeless memories that families cherish for generations. My commitment to quality, attention to detail and passion for storytelling through images sets me apart in the industry.

What would you like couples to know about you?
Beyond the lens, I am someone deeply passionate about love stories. Every couple has a unique narrative and I consider it a privilege to be chosen to document their journey. I approach each wedding with an open heart, ensuring that the essence of the couple’s bond shines through in every frame.

Where are you based?
I am based in Werribee but my family lives throughout Geelong. I love Geelong because it is truly a place that offers a myriad of scenic backdrops perfect for wedding photography.

Do you travel for weddings and is there a travel fee?
Absolutely! While Geelong is my home base, I love capturing love stories from all corners of the world. Depending on the location, there might be a travel fee but I always ensure transparency and discuss any additional costs upfront with the couple.

Are you familiar with the local wedding venues?
Indeed, I am! Having worked in Geelong for several years, I’ve had the pleasure of shooting at most of the local wedding venues. This familiarity allows me to recommend the best spots for photos and anticipate the unique lighting and logistical challenges each venue might present.

Do you shoot alone or do you have a partner/team?
While I am the primary photographer, I often work with a talented team of professionals, especially for larger weddings. This ensures that no moment goes unnoticed and that we capture multiple angles and perspectives.

How would you describe your photography style?
My style is a blend of candid moments and artistic compositions. I believe in capturing the raw emotions and spontaneous reactions and I also take the time to set up beautiful portraits that showcase the couple’s love in a timeless manner.

What inspires you?
Love, in all its forms, is my greatest inspiration. Witnessing the union of two souls and the joy it brings to their families and friends is a constant source of inspiration. Additionally, the ever-changing landscapes of the Geelong region and the unique stories of each couple keep my creativity flowing.

What motivates you to do what you do?
The smiles, the tears of joy and the heartfelt thank-yous from couples motivate me every day. Knowing that I play a small part in preserving memories that will be cherished for lifetimes is the greatest reward.

How long before couples can expect to receive their gallery of photos?
I understand the excitement couples feel post-wedding, eager to relive their special day through photos. Typically, couples can expect their full gallery within 6-8 weeks. However, I always strive to provide a few sneak peeks within a week of the wedding.

Share with us your advice to couples getting married?
Embrace every moment, both the planned and the unexpected. Your wedding day will fly by but the memories will last forever. Trust in your vendors, especially your photographer, to capture the essence of your day. And most importantly, focus on the love you share and the commitment you’re making – everything else is secondary.
