- The Studio
Congratulations! Thank you for considering Christian Oth Studio. Our Expert Photographer rates start at 8,000 USD. Each wedding is unique and we look forward to learning more about yours.
Q. How do I choose the right photographer?
In the photographer’s section, you can find a sample of each individual’s work. Browse around until you find a photographer whose images speak to you.
Q. What is your photography style?
We use a natural shooting style. We watch your story unfold and capture all its flavors: the quiet moments, stunning details, unique personalities, and the couple, of course. We won’t run your wedding or ruin it with long set-ups or stiff poses. Above all, we never harass your guests with posed table shots. We get the classic shots you seek in a fresh way.
Q. How much coverage do I need?
That's entirely up to you. The amount you need depends on your schedule and the events of the day. We recommend a minimum of 8 hours of coverage to ensure that we capture the flow of the day in true photojournalistic style.
Q. Will I need more than one photographer?
We are very good at working in teams. If the wedding is larger or more complex a second photographer becomes the logical choice. As weddings are celebratory and often spontaneous, truly memorable events may happen simultaneously at different locations. The 2nd photographer offers not only another perspective, but a more comprehensive coverage.
Q. What type of albums do you offer?
Our album designs are very distinctive and we have a professional designer on staff who will work with you to produce an album that will ultimately stand the test of time. We work mostly with Queensberry of New Zealand who are known for the finest albums in the world.
Q. Are you available for our date?

Q. Do you photograph other events?
Yes we do. We do bar/bat mitzvahs, rehearsal dinners, engagement photos, children’s portraiture and any other large event or party, personal or for business. Please contact the studio for rates.
Q. Will we meet with you before the wedding?
We strongly encourage a personal meeting at the studio to meet your photographer. Please call our studio manager at our Chelsea studio to schedule an appointment. For our international clients: please call the studio and we will arrange a phone/skype/video interview with your preferred photographer.
