About Jeff

There is something truly amazing about the mountains and landscapes in which we live. My passion for capturing your special moments drives me to incorporate you, your friends and family, and these landscapes into photos that will bring you back to that day each time you look at them.

About Jeff Chrisler | Owner + Lead Photographer

Hi, I’m Jeff with Couloir Creative Photography. I photograph mountain weddings in amazing locations across Colorado and stunning destinations throughout the world. I love helping couples feel comfortable in front of my lens. Making a connection with you via an engagement session or grabbing coffee (or a beer!) is important to me. This connection allows you and your fiance to open up and show the love you have for each other, and in turn allows for the real, authentic to come through in my photographs.

Having been married and feeling the pressure and awkwardness without much guidance to look my best in photographs, I absolutely love helping couples with poses. Everyone wants authentic and candid shots, but oftentimes couples need some to a lot of help. I’m happy to help you feel comfortable and look your best by having a ton of poses in mind and how to get you there. After that, you’ll be surprised how you start to break out of those poses in fun ways and those in-between moments become magic when I capture them.

Lastly, we all want an amazing weather and stunning spots to shoot on your big day, but sometimes that just doesn’t work out to perfection. Tough moments breed creativity though, and I enjoy making even a random corner, dim lighting, mirror, or puddle a moment to create a photograph you’d be happy to hang on your wall. Double exposures, using prisms, and off camera flash also enable me to create a lot of unique photos for your big day even if it’s a stormy one.

Thanks for reading a bit about me and my work – hope to talk to you about your wedding sometime soon!

I loved every moment of working with Jeff leading up to and during our wedding. His eye for getting the shot, friendly and comfortable personality, and attention to detail made him a perfect fit for our wedding photographer. What I appreciated the most about Jeff was how comfortable he made me and my husband feel while he was photographing us. It was not easy for me to have that much attention and focus as a bride and Jeff put me right at ease in a way that felt very safe and personal. His editing and touching up of the photographs after the wedding was beautifully done and I would recommend him to any of my family or friends. Thank you for being a part of such and important day in our lives Jeff!

We absolutely loved working with Jeff! We couldn't be happier with how our pictures turned out, so much better than we could have ever imagined. So many people have told us we need to submit them to a wedding magazine. Jeff has such an ease about him and has a way ofcatching the candid and sweet moments. We also appreciated how well he captured both people and landscapes. We had our wedding outside in Rocky Mountain National Park in the middle of March and he was totally on board for any weather or conditions--we needed someone who was along for the adventure. We are so grateful for the memories he captured.

Amazing photographer. Jeff shot our wedding in Crested Butte, Colorado this summer. The pics he took were absolutely stunning. Jeff was easy to work with and would always respond super fast to text or calls or emails. Would recommend him to any of my friends or family!
