about

raised in buffalo ny, I went to buffalo state college to complete my undergrad. while completing my bachelor’s, I met the love of my life at a local church service! she has been my partner in crime (and photography) ever since. other than being married and a father to two amazing kids, Isaiah & Harlow, I enjoy exploring the world and spending time with those who matter most. not to sound generic, but I really am an explorer by heart. i’m down to hike, bike, fly to the next destination wherever it may be, but if you ask my wife, i am prone to getting lost..

as a photographer, I’m about going against the grain. no cookie cutter shots. it can be hard to live in a world where being different sometimes means “weird,” but weird is good. we need more “weird.” i’m into the idea of standing out! inside & outside of a frame. that is one of the things I value as a photographer. we will work collaboratively to uniquely convey what you want to be remembered. your special day is as important to me as it is to you!

We loved working with Christian and Odyanna! They make such a great team. They made my engagement photo dreams come true without much (basically none!) direction from me! I can’t wait to see what kind of magic they work with our wedding pictures!

I can’t say enough good things about Christian and Odyanna! They photographed our elopement, and went above and beyond for us in so many ways. They got to City Hall early and were full of creative ideas on where we could shoot our photos. They even arranged for us to shoot in locations that we wouldn’t have otherwise had access to – and gave us VIP treatment all day! They make such a great team and really made us feel comfortable during the whole shoot. Both photographers were patient with us, and took time to talk us through the photos – even posing us if we needed extra help. That being said – I think their real skills come from being able to capture the natural moments that aren’t posed. Really, truly love all of our pictures – it was a struggle to pick out favorites because we loved them all! I would recommend them to anyone seeking heartfelt photos of their loved ones or a special day!

Christian Casillas did a beautiful job with my wedding video. Mr. Casillas & his wife were there the day of my wedding from the morning of to very end. He got footage of every aspect of my wedding. Working with them gave me peace of mind because I knew I would have a great video in the end. They’re very professional, sweet & flexible & will do anything to make you love your video, photos etc I’ve had photos done by Mr. Casillas as well and the quality of the editing is FANTASTIC. I watch my wedding video every single day because it’s just so beautiful ! If you’re thinking of hiring a photographer or videographer BOOK Christian Casillas Productions !! You won’t be disappointed ! The wait time to get back your photos & videos wasn’t long either & he sends you previews & runs things by you to make sure you’re satisfied with the work. Thank you again!
