Weddings


Jenn – Chris is the best photographer money can buy, and yet his wedding packages are a freaking steal. Where to even begin? He traveled a little over 50 miles to take our engagement photos on location at our alma mater and didn’t nickel and dime us for it. The photos were beautiful and promptly delivered. Chris is such a lighting and camera geek (and I mean that in the best way) that you end up high quality photos from the start that don’t really need any touching up. He has great inspiration and vision when deciding how to set things up to create a beautiful and memorable photograph. He showed up early and stayed late with us all day and captured everything start to finish, he even came to the rehearsal just to be ready. I could not believe he photographed every single person in the receiving line, how great to have a memory of every person that came to support us. To my surprise, I woke up the next day and he had already tagged a bunch of photos of us on facebook for our friends to see. What immediate gratification! He had the full batch of 1600+ photos ready the day after that. I could not believe how quickly he turned the photos around and had them to us. I will undoubtedly find excuses to have photo shoots with Chris in the future, what a great guy and an even better photographer.


Nichole – Chris captured everything from the start. From engagement photos, bridal portraits, to wedding ceremony and reception. He traveled all the way to Washington, DC for both the bridal ports and the wedding. I felt better knowing I had a trusted photographer by my side during such an important event. I couldn’t imagine using someone I didn’t feel comfortable with. Everyone loves the work he does and I am proud to showcase his photos while recommending him to friends and family. I couldn’t ask for more. He is great at improvising and pushing through tough spots just to get the perfect photos. Nothing will get in the way of what he envisions and the results are always amazing!


Sarah – I cannot say enough good things about Chris. We are so glad we chose him as our wedding photographer. All of our pictures were just amazing, we were seriously blown away. He is such a great person to work with, super friendly and always responding quickly to communication. He will pretty much do anything to make sure his client is happy. You can tell he really has a passion for his work. He is also very reasonably priced. We originally intended to go with the bronze package but after meeting with him we decided to upgrade to silver and that was definitely the right choice! It’s really a good value for all the things that are included. The beautiful album alone made it worth the upgrade. Long story short, hire him, you will not be disappointed!


Elizabeth – Chris was the perfect photographer for our entire wedding process: engagement shoot, bridal portraits, and wedding day – indoors, outdoors, when the fire department showed up – he always captured the emotion of each moment beautifully and perfectly.


Jessica Houghton – Chris Florio photography is the most memorable wedding gift you and your fiance can give one another! His photographs are absolutely breathtaking! He is incredibly talented and most importantly works with you to be sure that you get exactly what you want on your special day. I recommend him without hesitation, I guarantee you will not be disappointed!


Marissa – Simply put – wow. Chris was so amazing. He was by far the most affordable photographer and also delivered the MOST VALUE. He kept in touch with me the moment we booked him; we had severl lunch meetings to discuss what I was looking for. He did our engagement photos and our wedding photos – over 2500 pictures! If you are looking for an attentive vendor who genuinely cares about delivering quality photos, Chris is the photographer for you!


Robert Clinton – Chris did a wonderful job of documenting our event. The bridal photos are incredible! I couldn’t have asked for a better final product.


Polly Fowler – One of the best decisions I made was to have Chris be the photographer at my wedding. I have never seen someone work so hard to capture every important moment. Not only was he great with the photos he was also very understanding of the occasion and a pleasure to work with. I’ve already recommended him to many of my friends and will continue to do so. Thanks Chris 🙂


Vanessa Huther Tomzak – My husband and I had the pleasure of having Chris Florio do our engagement and wedding pictures. We had a lot of fun and love our pictures. He made us feel comfortable so our true selves came out in our pictures. Our family and friends raved about our pictures. We recommend him for any photograph needs you may have, whether it be a portrait or an event. We appreciate the portraits, as well as the group candids. Chris was laid back and very accomodating. There were certain things we wanted and he made sure to meet our needs and took some very special shots of us. We were very pleased with his professionalism. Thanks Chris!


Hannah Kottraba – Chris and his crew shot my wedding and they really went out of their way to make everything perfect! He and his crew took the time to come to the rehearsal dinner and take pictures and was with me all day of the wedding. I could not have asked for a better photographer or wedding pictures!! Chris was so creative and very easy to work with, and he always made sure I was comfortable and having a good time! Great work!!


Amanda Osborne Cobb – Chris did an excellent job on my wedding photos. He was very creative and great to work with!


Elizabeth I. Burnham-Wagner – Chris captured our wedding memories beautifully and we get so many comments on our wedding photos! He used the scenery to take creative and fun pictures. He even was able to have photos ready to view while we were on our honeymoon! Fantastic and fun photographer!


Melanie Johnson – Chris did a very professional job photographing our engagement, wedding, and my bridal portrait. He was prompt and reliable and had excellent equipment, including lighting when needed. I have noticed that some photographers can be intrusive but Chris got excellent shots without interrupting the natural flow of the day to do extensive poses. You are in good hands with this photographer.


Adair Thaxton – Chris photographed my wedding, and did a wonderful job. He was very flexible with us and attended anything we asked him to – more than I had expected! He was professional, easy to work with, and the photos turned out beautifully.


Keri Rehm – Chris was a great photographer! He wasn’t at all pushy (a trait my BMs said was rare), and he took some very creative shots that highlighted all of the work that went into my and my husband’s special day. Chris was there at 8 AM to photograph us getting our hair and makeup done, and he stayed through the reception and even took some shots after!

My family and I were really happy with what we payed for, He was professional, flexible, and super nice!

Lauren Light – I’m continually asked “Who shot my music video”, “Who too that picture”. They are usually amazed to find out all that talent is provided by FlorioPics.com . Chris is professional, timely, creative and most of all downright fun to work with. He took the spoken concepts and ideas we had, whether it was Video or Photography, and made them a real product that I am proud to show to everyone. Hire him; trust me you’ll be 100% happy you did!


Nikóla Hart – Chris is fantastic! What I appreciate the most is how knowledgeable he is about photography. It is obvious that he has taken the time to actually learn the intricacies of photography and the actual camera. He will not continue taking photos unless the lighting is perfect. His diligence shows in his incredible work. He is extremely professional and knows how to make a client feel comfortable. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I am extremely happy about the photos and will be using them to push my singing career forward.


The Kitchen Sink Fiasco – ‎Chris Florio at FlorioPics.com puts the pro in promo pics! If you’re in a band and want your band to look good, he’s the man to go to!


Megan Van Vleet – I worked with Chris Florio for my first professional photo shoot ever, and it was such a great experience. I was immediately at ease and felt very comfortable in the studio. We were able to capture some truly stunning shots and he made it into such a fun environment that it felt like the shoot went by so fast. In addition to the atmosphere he creates that makes it so easy to work in, Chris’ photographs really speak for themselves. He is technically and artistically gifted, and produces beautiful shots that leave a lasting impression on any viewer. I would absolutely recommend Chris Florio, and intend to work with him on many more occasions.


Commercial


Jennie Quinn – Chris has a phenomenal understanding of lighting and gets excellent shot time after time. His work exceeded all expectations and transformed this shoot into something extraordinary. The turn around was extremely efficient as well. Well done and a studio well worth referring to!!!


Greg Morrow – Chris did the first Official Photo-Shoot for THE ORIGINAL KING BUNGEE ART DECK-O Performance SkateBoard Deck Line & The OKB. Chris captured everything that I hoped for with our Spokesmodel Danielle Pearce. He is a true artist. Chris uses and manipulates lighting better than anyone I’ve ever seen or have ever worked with.


Beth Johnson – I’ve worked with Chris on several projects and he is always professional! He will go above and beyond to get great shots with props and his creativity! However, most of all he listens to what the client wants. His knowledge of lighting and photography is superior, and definitely makes him one of the best! Not to mention he can set up and break down the fastest I’ve seen at almost any location! He truly is a lot of fun to work with!


Ryan Turner Chris did a photo shoot for me back in January. His work is amazing. He is an expert at using lighting to make a shot really special. His contemporary style is a huge breath of fresh air compared to traditional photography. A++


Models


Raquel Williams – Chris is an excellent photographer! He has assisted me with many projects such as my modeling portfolio and even some video work. Professional, timely and creative, Chris is a joy to work with. He also has the fastest turn around time of any photographer.


Allegra L – I have never, ever been anything less than amazed with the results when I work with Chris. He’s not just a great photographer (with some of the best lighting techniques I have ever seen); he’s also a great artist. I’m constantly impressed with his creativity, his eye for beauty, and his determination to get the best shot possible. On top of that, he’s easy to work with and very professional, with a quick turnaround time for proofs and photos. I can’t recommend him enough!


Laura Paige – Florio is the best! Creative and professional. I wish all my photographers were like him!


Schaulis Fike – As an aspiring model, one must be picky about who they shoot with. Chris has been an amazing choice! He is a brilliant photographer; he’s fun, spunky, understanding, and just all over awesome. His work is inspired and fresh. He truly works with his subjects, within their comfort level, to achieve the best product possible. Not only all of that, but he’s become a close friend due to his genuine love for all and compassion. I’ve shot at all hours of the day and late night with Chris, and every shoot he’s been in a happy, positive mood, even if I may have been a little grumpy myself. We did a lunchtime shoot just days after I found out I was expecting my first child. Of course, noon in the Triangle in the dead of August isn’t exactly the coolest time of the day. Towards the end of the shoot, I began to suffer heat exhaustion; Chris instantly helped me to his vehicle where he turned on the AC and gave me plenty of water. Chris is, without a doubt, one of the best photographers I have worked with in my career. I look forward to working with him again in the future!


Alyssa Schuster – Where to begin? Chris is absolutely awesome. He’s such a great photographer in all aspects- the shots turn out great, he’s a really cool guy and fun to work with, he makes his clients feel comfortable with him, and he knows just what he’s doing! So far I’ve done two shoots with him and I haven’t been disappointed. He’s definitely at the top of my list of photographers in the Triangle area.


Alicia Betancourt – I first met Chris in March 2010 for one of his 365 shoots. It was my first time doing any sort of professional shoot as a model and was trying to build a portfolio. Chris is known for his professional and creative lighting techniques. From this shoot, I had quite a positive response and have worked on other projects since then. Many of my photos taken by him are frequently commented on and used for marketing for clients and as a marketing tool for myself. Thanks Chris for your long hours and dedication to your craft!


Sophia Nicholson – I’ve worked with Chris in several capacities over the three years I’ve known him, and his balance of professionalism and creativity is unparalleled. I can’t wait to see what he does in the future. Chris, let’s schedule those NYC shoots already!


ClaireBearx3 – I worked with Chris for my Pittsburgh Steelers inspired photoshoot and had a BLAST! He was totally professional while making me feel comfortable the whole time. The pictures came out amazingly well and I still wish we could have worked together again before I moved out to San Diego. Chris, if you’re reading this and ever come out to CA, we have to set something up!
