Frozen in Time

Portrait + Wedding Photography for Your Special Moments


My Story

CJ started his first photography business in 2014 when he snapped a picture of his childhood dog Oreo. Now that she has passed over the rainbow bridge, photos mean more to CJ than anything else. The right photos can remind us of special moments, and even the mundane ones that become special later. His photos attempt to capture those who live enthusiastically and with love. I believe the ordinary moments come to life so much more behind the camera, and trapping those moments is why we are here. 

I love taking clients for a cup of coffee and discussing what makes them unique and how we can work together to create lasting memories. 

Come and tell me more about yourself! I can't wait to meet you.


We are so glad you're here. Since this company (formerly Christopher Edwards Photography) was founded, my focus has been on capturing genuine, meaningful relationships. Whether that is an engagement shoot, family photos, or pics with your best friend, each is special in their own way, and I would love to learn more about you so I can photograph your relationship. Contact me for more info!


Our Clients Love Us!

CJ was the best person we could have hired to take our pictures! He was flexible and truly cared about the vision I had in mind. The pictures exceed every expectation I could have ever had! I'd recommend Christopher Edwards Photography to anyone.

We hired CJ for our family reunion. He showed up on time and even stayed a little longer so a late joining member could be included. I wholeheartedly recommend him. Courteous and professional.

I love CJ! He works his hardest to make every photo perfect and exactly what you are looking for!
