Hello! My name is Chris, and you probably already know I'm a wedding photographer based in Providence, Rhode Island. Here's a bit more about me:

I first started taking photos for bands when I was in high school, and eventually I had the opportunity to put my love for photography together with my urge to travel by touring with several throughout the US, Canada, and the UK. During that time, I did a lot of traveling, and more importantly, a lot of learning about adapting to difficult situations. 

Eventually, I felt like I needed to devote more time to the places I traveled to, rather than just one day in a new city before moving on to the next one. I shifted my focus to the outdoors and took to the road to see as many of the national parks in the US that I could between 2013-2014. I still have a bunch on my list, and continue to check new parks off each year. If you'd like to see some more of my travel-related work, head here.

Throughout the last 10 years, I have had the honor of working with a range of different clients both locally and globally. Some of my work has been featured by magazines and platforms likeTravel + LeisureCNNDesign AglowGobe MagazineField MagPOSI+TIVE Magazine, Instagram, Rhode Island MonthlyThe Providence Journal and more. Travel is my favorite subject if you couldn't tell, followed closely by coffee, and I'm always open to a good conversation about either!

I am available for weddings, elopements, engagements, portrait and select commissioned work worldwide. Feel free to reach out at hello@chrismongeau.com with any inquiries or to just say hello.

Never stop learning.

Education is one of the most important components of my life. I don't think any of us can be the best versions of ourselves without some outside help, critiquing, and a constant drive to learn more. While I'm pretty confident behind a camera, there is so much about running a business that demands multiple lanes of knowledge. I reinvest in myself because I want to be someone who does have all of the answers for my clients, someone who can adapt and shift focus in a moment's notice when needed, and someone who isn't afraid of challenges. Apart from personal business coaching, I spend most of my free time reading. 

Having recently been a part of a truly life changing business coaching program with the legendary Jai Long, I highly recommend checking him out if you don't know who he is. His podcast and the community he's built within the wedding photography industry is unlike anything else that exists and I think anyone can apply the important mindset tactics he discusses to their own life and endeavors.
