My name is Chad Ainsworth, and I really love what I do. When I originally started out in photography, my interest tended to gravitate more towards commercial work because it seemed more glamorous and exciting than shooting weddings. However, over the past few years, I have grown to absolutely love wedding and engagement photography more than anything else I do. If I shoot a photo for the cover of a national magazine, that's great for that month's issue, but then it's gone forever and will probably be forgotten about within just a couple months. If I photograph someone's wedding, the most precious day of their life, that person will cherish those photos forever... hanging them on their walls and setting them on their coffee tables for many decades to come. If I were to die tomorrow, it's utterly amazing and incredibly humbling to know that the work I've done will serve a meaningful purpose for many years beyond my existence. Nothing can be more romantic and inspiring to me than that!
I met my beautiful wife back in college, fell fell in love, got married, and the rest is history! We just had our first baby and we are loving every minute of it! When I'm not on baby-duty, I enjoy riding around dusty backroads on my Harley-Davidson Iron 883 motorcycle. In short, I'm a denim & leather wearing, Harley riding, coffee drinking, hockey loving, family-centered father & husband.
I'll be looking forward to hearing from you soon regarding your wedding, but for now please take a gander throughout my website and check out some of my prior work. Thank you for having interest in me as your potential wedding photographer!
