About Me


I’m Chris, owner and lead photographer/editor/web designer here at 2thirtyone.

A little about me: I’m 33 years old. Born in October. I have a mild obsession with gadgets and technology. I have two cats, Gizmo and KitKat. I’m a Northern Michigan native, but spent some years traveling around to experience new places. Traverse City is an amazing blend of art, food, local culture, urban, rural, and nature and I couldn’t think of a better place to live. Oh, and my family is nearby!

About my photographic style: I mix classic style and fresh trends. My photographs are artistic, timeless, memorable, and emotional. My photos show my clients personalities and tell their story from my perspective behind the lens. At the end of the day, my clients are the reason I became a photographer. I meet new people, see new places and share in one of the most emotional and special days of their lives. Being able to capture it all and tell a story that they can share with their family for years to come is something special. That is what makes me love my job.
