Chrisman Studios began as Ben Chrisman Photography in 2005 – with a young, former newspaper photographer working out of a tiny office in his house in Santa Fe.
Ben became a wedding photographer to show the world that wedding photos could be edgy, sexy, funny, honest and full of life, and could stand alone as works of art. Between then and now, Ben has grown his modest business into Chrisman Studios, a collective of four photographers (Ben, Erin, Mauricio and Ryan) and one videographer (Vlad) with offices in Charleston and San Francisco. Between the five of them, they speak six different languages and have photographed in over 20 countries. But there is always more to see, learn and experience. That’s what they love about their jobs.
Whether photographing an elopement in Mexico, a small backyard wedding, or a 500-guest soiree in the city, our team always has three main goals for your images – to celebrate your life, make your parents proud and your friends jealous. We’re always available to talk and the number right to our desks is 415 741 1443.
