Chris DePolis is a seasoned veteran in both the Wedding and Real Estate venues. He recently moved from NJ to SW Florida and is currently shooting for several companies locally. Being in the "Sunshine State" has afforded Chris the opportunity to work year round as apposed to just seasonally. The big blue skies, billowing white clouds and beautiful sandy beaches provide the all-year-round perfect backdrop for any photographic event!
I love the interaction of people when they are in a happy festive mood... To be able to capture the emotions when they occur in a relaxed, natural setting, is just thrilling to me! I am really good at making people feel comfortable in an otherwise tense situation. I know that standing in front of a camera is sometimes intimidating and it's hard to be yourself... I do have a gift in making you relax and enjoy the moment. That comes from experience and knowing human nature... And when that special moment occurs and we can capture it... That's when the magic happens!
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done mostly large events such as wedding, corporate, birthdays, sweet 16's, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, retirement parties, concerts.... the list goes on. Basically, people getting together to have a great time!
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I have been the "top gun" photographer for several wedding studios throughout the years. I like to do my best and give my all at each and every event. I treat you like you were family... and feel, by the end of the day, like you truly are!
A fun fact about this photographer
I am also an accomplished musician. I play the trumpet and made a co-career out of playing music. What a joy to entertain and bring joy into peoples' lives!
