Jeff Chrisler. Photographer.
Photos ALWAYS TELL A STORY.
Couloir Creative is, me, Jeff Chrisler. I'm a Colorado based wedding, portrait, and adventure photographer. I love telling a story through capturing a couple showing their love and laughing together, the light on a mountain, or a climber pushing through a tough section of rock.
I've been shooting for over ten years, and have a knack for editing and post-processing. My location for shoots is usually in the mountains of beautiful Colorado, but I travel for destination weddings and back to the east coast as well.
Shooting Style - It's About You.
I pride myself on making a shoot comfortable even when my camera is pointing or just disappearing and letting a couple enjoy some special moments together... while my shutter is held down. I will let you do your thing and document the real moments, but if you need help I'll step in.
I’m not into setting up certain canned poses and making you look like someone that you’re not. In order to shoot unique and different photos, I simply capture your unique relationship and ensure you feel comfortable. Sure, I'll make a few suggestions, but overall these photographs are all about you and I don't want to change that.
A few random facts about me
- I love the outdoors - runnning, climbing, biking, and skiing... it's awesome to be outside in our great state of Colorado and I try to get outside as much as possible
- I am a sap at heart; witnessing love between two people is definitely an amazing thing to see
- I am a pet person; dogs, cats, fish... you name it, if you have one and it's important to you to be in some photos, I'd love to hang out with your special buddy
What's with this Couloir thing?
It isn't a fancy way to spell color.

I have always been infatuated with mountains. Couloirs are a part of their stunning beauty and as a skier they can be the most gratifying terrain feature to ski. Fortunately, couloirs are an amazing background feature for portraits as well.
