Weddings in Lake Tahoe :: Lake Tahoe Portrait and Wedding Photographers

Wedding Photography Background

Initially studying photography in his highschool years, Chris Werner has spent the past 15 years traveling and photographing people and places all over the world. In those days, digital photography had not even been introduced on a mass consumer level; film photography was the standard. Clicking the shutter was just the beginning. Once the film had been exposed, the negatives had to be developed in a darkroom. Once the negatives had been developed, they were placed individually in an enlarger and exposures were made on photographic paper. Then each exposed sheet of photographic paper had to be developed in a series of chemical baths. Although the process was time-intensive, laden with chemical-intensive steps and always subject to user error, great satisfaction could be had from a finished print. Although digital photography is the accepted standard today, having a background in film photography only adds to a deeper understanding of the photographic process and the history of the art itself.

Photojournalism and Wedding Photography

Having grown up overseas-and in the course of extended sojourns abroad in later years- Chris has photographed people, places and landscapes from the common to the exotic. From subject-aware headshots to candid, photojournalistic style portraits, he has discovered that of all his subjects, people continue to be a favorite. When you spend enough time in a foreign place, the exotic becomes more common. When you realize that the shift in perception is just a function of perspective, you begin to find the exotic in that which is normally familiar. This is where a wedding photographer's eye is developed.
