Hi, my name is

Chris Walter

Wedding and Family Photographer

About Me

From the western suburbs of Melbourne, I grew up absorbing stories and memories as told through the lens of a slide projector. My grandma's vivid narrations and the shared joy of reliving moments as a family instilled in me an appreciation for the power of photography. This passion, coupled with my inherent creativity as a musician, led me to transition from a hobbyist to a professional photographer.

Though I hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychological Science from Swinburne and a Masters in Teaching from Curtin University, my heart has always resonated with the rhythm of shutter clicks. Founded in 2020, Chris Walter Photography is a reflection of this passion.

Specializing in bespoke wedding photography and vibrant family/newborn shoots, I prioritise people above everything else. Every photo session is a unique story waiting to be told. I believe in capturing raw emotions over staged moments, and this authenticity is evident in every snapshot.

What sets my work apart is the heart and soul poured into every project. Your special day isn't just another date on my calendar. It's a day filled with moments that I cherish as much as you do. While awards and accolades might define success for many, for me, it's the smile on my clients' faces and the joy in their voices when they relive their memories through my photographs.

Integrity, authenticity, and respect are the cornerstones of Chris Walter Photography. These values not only influence the photographs I take but also the way I conduct my business. From the initial consultation to the final product, every interaction is guided by these principles.

As I look to the future, I envision Chris Walter Photography as a holistic platform, celebrating and bringing families and couples closer together, one photograph at a time. Whether you're marking a milestone or celebrating love, I'm here to capture the essence of the moment, giving you memories to cherish for a lifetime.

Outside of work, I'm an ardent musician and an advocate for community engagement. One of my most treasured feedbacks came from Emma and Jake, who once said, "You didn't just capture photos; you captured moments, emotions, and stories." And that's precisely what I aim to do every single day.

Join me in this journey of capturing life's beautiful moments. Let's create memories together.

“We were blown away with our photos from Chris’ shoot. They were breath-taking and we’re having a hard time trying to choose which ones to frame! He made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and captured the emotion perfectly. Highly recommend!! Thanks so much Chris!”
