Chrisman Studios started as Ben Chrisman Photography in 2005 – with a young, former newspaper photographer working out of a tiny studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico. From there, Ben went to San Francisco with Erin, and that’s where Chrisman Studios really began. 

Ben became a wedding photographer to show the world that wedding photography 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 based in Charleston (Erin and Ben), San Francisco (Ryan), Santa Fe (Vlad) and a little town outside of Venice, Italy (Mauricio). Between the five of them, they speak six different languages and have photographed in over 30 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.
