Holmes Photography is AMAZING! During our wedding, I had countless people
come up to us and tell me how much they enjoyed our photographers. They
complimented how they were never in their face, they just blended in with
our families, and never intruded on any person's personal space. Now that
we have our photos, we couldn't be happier. They are GORGEOUS! And this
whole PASS site makes things incredibly easy for people like us, who now
live in Virginia, have family in Michigan, Illinois, Alabama, and all over
the place. Not to mention friends as far away as Alaska. All in all, Holmes
Photography did an amazing, professional job. If I had to do it all over
again, I would use them in a heartbeat!

Holmes Photography was so great to work with! They were able to capture
every magical moment of our day through all of the pictures they took. We
couldn't be happier!!
Jessica & JC Schumacher (Wedding Photography)
Chris was absolutely amazing! My husband and I were very satisfied with how
courteous he was and so willing to help. He made our big day an
unforgettable one. Definitely going to have him do future photos!
Chris and Martha (Wedding Photography)
Not only did we hire Chris as our photographer for our wedding, but we also
were married in their beautifully restored Bridge Street Wedding Chapel.
They were very knowledgeable, helpful and laid back during the entire
wedding day. By hiring Gay & Chris you are sure to have all of the
important moments covered both with the guys and the girls being
photographed while getting ready for your big event. Even though there were
two photographers present throughout the day, I really didn't even notice
they were there most of the time! When I looked back at many of the
pictures, I don't remember being photographed and I think that is a
testimony to their professionalism and years of experience! They captured
so many great moments that I am having a hard time narrowing down my
choices for my wedding album--what a great problem to have! I would highly
recommend them to you!

Holmes Photography did an incredible job with the photos for my wedding AND
with managing the relationships involved. They were calm, respectfully
directive, creative, dependable, and talented. I would HIGHLY recommend

Chris has a great eye and knows how to capture the moments un-staged and
unique. We hardly knew he was there except for the photos we wanted
portraits of with family. Definitely contact him if you want to capture any
precious moments in your life!
Smallwood Family (Child Portrait Photography)
Taking photos of a 2.5 year old and a 2 month old is, let's be honest, kind
of a pain in the rear. Nothing about kids that age is predictable. Despite
the subject matter challenge, we ended up with a couple really good shots
of our little ones. Chris is an experienced professional and I definitely

Beautiful and could not be any better. Quality photographer equals quality
results. Directory proves that point!
Amy Burton - Tate at 2 (Family and Child Portrait Photography)
Chris Holmes is easygoing, fun and has a great eye for getting the pics you
wouldn't think of. Our two year old tends to be pretty skeptical of
photographers, which makes photo shoots hard on my husband and I -- we
usually end up being stressed and sweaty by the end of it, praying we got
at least two or three good ones! Not this time...Chris was looked at by our
son warily upon arrival, but within minutes he'd made our son comfortable
and ended up getting so many great photos that truly captured the essence
and personality of the toddler we know and love. I give ten stars, two
thumbs up -- you can't go wrong with Holmes Photography!
Kathy & Dave (Wedding Photography)
Chris is wonderful to work with. My husband and I rented the Bridge Street
Wedding Chapel for our wedding and hired Holmes photography to capture our
special day. They did just that!!! We have lots of beautiful pictures to
choose from. I recommend Holmes photography to anyone needing professional
Chelsea Bonofiglio (Senior Portrait Photography)
Holmes Photography was an exceptionally wonderful experience. Chris was
very flexible in the various places my daughter wanted her senior pictures
to be taken. His expertise and eye for lovely backdrops, lighting, and
poses made for wonderful shots. He is very patient and relaxed as this was
my daughter’s first experience with a professional photo shoot. At no time
did we feel rushed or like we were just another client. Prices are very
reasonable and for the professional quality of product and service the
prices are actually unbeatable. He even allowed my daughter (future graphic
artist) to design a few of her own green screen shots. We are very pleased.
We will use Holmes Photography again in the future for other family
shots... you should too!
Kathy and Becky Family (Family Portraits)
What a fun photo shoot! Our usually camera shy toddler didn't even realize
she was being photographed. Great people to work with and what a relaxing
setting! Will definitely use them again.
Exellent Work & Excellent Service!
Our entire experience with Holmes Photography was easy and enjoyable! It started off wonderful during our engagement session, where Chris and Mary were able to make us feel comfortable and capture us truly having fun. Neither of us were accustomed to having lots of pictures taken, but Chris and Mary chatted with us during the session, making everything look very natural. My husband and I were really flexible on where the pictures would be done, and the choices that were recommended fit us perfectly. We loved the pictures so much, that we decided to do a majority of our wedding pictures in the same locations! We had just as positive experience for our pre-wedding planning and working with Holmes Photography both for pictures and for their support with the chapel. They were very supportive of our relaxed approach to planning and offered suggestions along the way. I was particularly impressed with their ability to capture the fantastic pictures of all of our nieces and nephews. At the time, we had 8 young nieces and nephews as the flower girls and ring bearers. They managed the chaos so well! The pictures of the kids during the ceremony will be some of our favorites for years. I can't speak highly enough of the pictures we have of our wedding. Holmes Photography didn't miss any of the groups or actions we had requested. They also surprised me with pictures that I wouldn't have even requested. We have such a perfect timeline of our entire day, really captured all the best moments! Whenever I have shared pictures from Holmes, I get rave reviews and people are continually impressed with the quantity and quality. After the wedding, Chris still supported us with our relaxed approach to ordering our album. We hadn't been in a rush, and he stayed on top of helping us on each step (he was more proactive than we were!). We really enjoyed working with Holmes Photography for our engagement session and wedding day! Thanks!!
High quality service
Would highly recommend Holmes Photography. They are personable and friendly. We felt comfortable with them taking pictures of us all day. Engagement and wedding pictures turned out better than expected. They were very flexible and accommodating to our schedule. They were even patient and managed to get pictures of our constantly moving hyper dog! I would recommend them for any of your photography needs.
High quality, great service, attentive
I first met Chris at the Lansing Bridal Show. I booked that day. My husband is a farmer and Chris was very willing to work with us on our engagement pictures, especially when they turned into a winter session and we had to wait for the snow. He also was willing to come out to the family farm to take these pictures. Then we had to move our wedding up by a few months and Chris worked with us on that. It was very important to us to have him for our wedding. He arrived prior to the ceremony along with Mary. They were able to get candid pictures of us getting ready. After the ceremony, we had a large bridal party and a lot of family shots. He also was willing to take pictures at the family farm again (these our some of my favorites). We loved having two photographers for the day and getting candid shots as well. My husband and I both think we take horrible pictures and we love the pictures they took. I can proudly display our wedding pictures which to me was one of the most important things. I would highly recommend Chris and Mary and plan to book them for future needs.
When we first met with Chris, he was warm, friendly and full of experience. We were not disappointed. Liz and Karah were wonderful. They were friendly, helpful and respectful. I asked that some items and some different photos be taken while we were getting dressed, etc and they were most accommodating to my requests. We took some fun shots along the way too. We have now reviewed our photos, they are high quality and very professional. The only thing I would say is that we could have had more close up shots of the bride, groom and bridal party, but in looking at the photos, I know they were trying to include background such as the stained glass or my dress or the lake as the golf club. All in all, I would say this was a very positive experience for us and our special day.
Chris is great!
Chris is very easy to work with. He is very accommodating to quick scheduling and does excellent work. I would recommend him to anyone!
Professional, personable and fast!
We contacted Chris @ Holmes Photography for my son's Senior Portraits after asking around and contacting other photographers in the greater Lansing area. We felt Chris was the best choice for us-- close to home, fast service and options to be as detailed or as simple as we felt comfortable with. Chris greeted us when we arrived and put my son at ease about "posing" for pictures. Chris listened to both of our ideas and explained the process to us. We completed our studio session quickly and comfortably and look forward to some outdoor and special locations soon!
Thank you for the awesome photos and with a deadline. I appreciate it!
High quality service, professional and friendly!
Chris Holmes came to photograph my daughter's sweet 16 birthday party and I can't begin to say how happy I am with the results! He made everything so easy for us so we were able to relax and enjoy the event. The photos were amazing, fun, beautiful and Chris was so nice and professional! Having this milestone captured by him was priceless! I would highly recommend Holmes Photography!
Talented, patient and great to work with!
Chris shot professional portraits for over 100 of our employees. He accommodated our multiple office locations and employee schedules to shoot our employee headshots. The pictures turned out so well that almost all of our employees requested copies! Chris is very responsive, always answering my emails within 24 hours, was always on time and finished our massive project on a very timely basis. If you need a professional and kind photographer that delivers great results, use Chris Holmes.
