Hip Hop & Contemporary Dancer
My first photo-shoot with Chris was nothing but a fun and collaborative experience. I find dance photography to be a very intimate type of shoot, as the photographer must understand the way each particular dancer moves and capture them in their finest (and sometimes most vulnerable moments). Chris was sure to make sure he knew me as a person as well as a dancer when we met and I couldn’t appreciate that more. One of my favorite things about dance photography is when a person has the chance to learn and grow with her photographer. I had the pleasure of shooting with Chris when I first began my dance shoots and I have followed his work ever since. We’ve watched each other grow in our fields and I cannot wait to work with him again!
Working with Chris, from Truth and Love Photography, was such an amazing experience. He was very attentive especially when I was confused, he was always understanding and willing to help. During the photo shoot, he was good at knowing how he wanted the images to look. He had an overall positive vibe and humble spirit. I definitely recommend him for any of your photo shoots. He is the real deal. I look forward to working with him again soon.
Shooting with Chris was very easy going. I never met him beforehand and he immediately made me feel comfortable when we started. He gave me a freedom to explore and really show off my personality in the photos. I'd say the biggest gift Chris has when it comes to photography is genuinely grasping an individuals personality and bringing out their best self. He puts a lot of truth and love into what he does and gets the same in return.

I met Chris for the first time on a sunny day during the spring. I told him I needed head shots for an audition and he recommended shooting at Pier 63. Chris is one the best communicators I have met hands down. He took the time to get to know more about me and what I want to exemplify. During the photo shoot he was clear with the direction and very encouraging. I look forward to working with him again and I am positive Chris has a bright future ahead of him.

In my experiences with various photographers, Truth and Love Photography is a very unique experience. There's a sense of collaboration with direction and an amazing sense of comfort. As a dancer, Chris really works with you to find what looks best for you. He works with your personality and try's to capture you in your most natural form.

I have had the pleasure of working with Chris more than once and each time we shoot the photos are better and better. He is one of the first photographers I have ever worked with in the city and it is awesome how he actually takes the time to get familiar with you and your comfort level before each shoot. In my opinion this is a great way of building both the photographer and models confidence during the shoot! As far as post-shooting he is very prompt with returning your photos back to you and keeps you updated! Thank you so much Chris for being awesome, and I am glad to call you not only my photographer but my friend!

Loved working with Chris - knows exactly the shots he wants as well as the locations. Had a short & sweet shoots but we were able to capture quite a few variations in a short time. Would love to work with him again.

I've worked with many (many) photographers and I have to say I had a great experience shooting with Chris. I can't say that about every shoot. Chris was very personable, took time to get to know me, shared his knowledge of photography with me, asked me lots of pertinent questions, etc. In addition, communication leading up to the shoot was great -- I knew what to expect, what to bring/wear and how long the shoot would be. Laslty, he took some amazing photos -- so many great shots, it was hard to choose my favorites. He also picked a great location to shoot. It was a pleasure meeting and working with Chris and I wish him the very best in his career. I know he will go far!

Sometimes a brand can clearly express what their passion and prime focus is in the marketplace. Chris Disla is one of those influential rising leaders and superstars in the photography business that I have gotten the chance to be photographed by over the course of the past 5 years. Seeing the development from our first photo shoot up to our most recent, the quality and mastery Chris has given to his art and the mechanics behind the lens you can tell this is the path his life was meant to be on. I honor the story he works to express through his photos, and the truth behind it. Chris has been a man of truth with a loving heart and soul. So if I'm choosing anyone to capture a moment in my life, I'm choosing Chris every single time.

Thank you Chris for your patience, skill and kindness. Chris was very professional and easy to shoot with. It is not often that photographer asks for a true collaboration and it was so refreshing to have someone genuinely want my opinion. He was considerate and funny. A wonderful person with a great personality and an eye for photography. He was quick to return edited images and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Chris. I look forward to shooting again soon!
Chris was such a joy to work with. He was professional and easy going the whole time; from the day before when we set up our specific meeting space, through the shoot and following the shoot he was clear and generous in sharing his photos. I definitely would recommend working with him to everyone!
