What we do.

People ask me all the time, "Chris, what exactly do you shoot?" I think for a second, then decide to list the things I don't shoot, because it's... shorter. To give my clients a fresh look of what I've been up to, I start out each year with a gallery like you see below, whittling down a whole year's worth of work down to exactly one photo from each shoot last year. So, what you see below is a snapshot of last year's 240 photo sessions, from simple headshots to full wedding days. If you like what you see, discover more about my services at one of these three websites, or browse full sessions by category. Find out for yourself why people choose GoodEye™

About GoodEye Photography:

Chris Schmauch here, owner of GoodEye Photography. I shoot all kinds of subjects throughout the year   – 25 to 35 weddings, lots of family portraits and plenty of commercial / corporate / lifestyle photography for the business community (well over 200 shoots per year). It doesn't matter if I'm shooting food, little kids, or huge weddings – I love it all! And I prefer being busy throughout the year so I stay on top of my game.

Santa Cruz Wedding Photography:

Because we live here, we shoot weddings in the Santa Cruz / Monterey / Carmel area, but also find ourselves in the greater Bay Area (and beyond) for our wedding clients.
