Christopher H Photo - Film Photography in New York City
The early morning horizon was starting to blaze a deep red glow as I stepped onto the floating dock. This was my second light show this morning, having been treated to the lunar eclipse on my drive up to the Highlands. It was a crisp morning with winds…
Mercedez and Dymir - in the Sunflower Fields!
September is sunflower season! And as I shoot my way through the hot summer months, I start to look forward to cooler shooting days. When I first met up with Mercedez and Dymir to talk about their wedding day, Mercedez told me (and Dymir) that she had one non-budgeable request…
Christopher H Photo - June Photo Feature!
June 15, 2023
June is blueberry season in southern New Jersey!
Southern New Jersey’s sandy soil is perfectly suited for blueberries. I’ll find both lowbush and highbush blueberry plants pretty much everywhere when I’m out hiking in the Pine Barrens. A couple of my hikes will actually pass right through…
Fari and Jerrell - at Blue Heron Pines
Fari contacted me all the way from Washington state about her and Jerrell’s wedding. They were planning a wonderfully intimate summer wedding at Blue Heron Pines golf club. The running joke we kept referred to how cold, blustery, sleety and miserable it was on the day we met in February…
Christopher H Photo - Film Photography in Washington, DC
March 26 2023
I had an awesome March 26! I took a train ride; I haven’t done that since pre-COVID. I took the Hasselblad out on an adventure; I’ve only done that twice before, and one of those times the camera locked up on me 8 frames in. I took…

My photos were featured on the Kodak Professional website and social media sites again! Check out the individual photos further below…
I use Kodak film exclusively. My refrigerator crisper drawer is full of Kodak film (yes, literally.) I was actually starting to plan out a few film…
Lauren and Steve - at The Madison
The Madison is like a second shooting home to me, so I was so happy when Lauren and Steve contacted me for their October wedding! Autumn days are the best for weddings, with cooler temps and crisp air. Lauren and Steve had a crystal clear, blue sky day to top…
Irem and Chris - at Laurel Creek Country Club
When I first spoke with Irem and Chris, Irem mentioned to me that family photos were very important to her. As we moved further into our conversation, I also found out that getting a lot of family photos was a priority because her family was coming to the US from…
Christopher H Photo - Film Photography in the Smithsonian
April 3 2022
One of my favorite museums is the Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum annex - the Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia. If you think the National Mall Air and Space Museum is impressive, then you’ve got to see the Chantilly, Virginia exhibit.
I think it was way back in…
Te’Anna - Winter Wonderland Portrait Session
When I received the call from Te’Anna’s mom last February, asking if I could photograph a Portrait Session for her birthday, I was thinking we’d wait until spring. Nope - she was ready to shoot! So, we planned for a day the very next week. Little did I know, we’d…
