resulting in you feeling much more comfortable in front of the camera come your wedding day, and plenty of gorgeous photos.
over lattes & croissants (or perhaps sangria and pizza?) I'll help you put your basic timeline together & spill all my best advice to help your day flow smoothly and allow for the best possible photos.
I hand-edit for optimal exposure, color, and tone. Your photos are never outsourced for editing; each of them remain in my care from capture to completion.

is in my blood, and is always welcome! I'm happy to create a custom quote for you.
Your high resolution photos will be delivered through a sleek, private online gallery.
Beautiful viewing, simple download, and convenient archival print ordering.
I'll have your engagement photos to you within 4 weeks, and your wedding photos within 8 weeks. They'll be high resolution, and in a mix of color and black & white.
For an 8 hour wedding, you can expect about 350+ images. However, this number will depend on your unique day!
There's an idea floating around that you need a second photographer, and it's simply not true! One photographer can absolutely provide adequate coverage of your day. My couples
have all been beyond satisfied with the 350+ photos and various angles I provide working solo. You can rest assured that when you work with me, you'll receive both beautifully crafted portraits and plenty of candid, heartfelt moments you probably won't even notice me catching.
Okay, so this isn't that frequent of a question...but it still deserves addressing! While I love Pinterest (and let's be real, who doesn't?) here's the thing: the reason so many of those wedding photos are so beautiful is because they're of real moments, not replicated poses.
The magic (& those pinterest/magazine-worthy photos) will happen when we're focused on capturing you, naturally. They won't happen (and I'd be doing you a disservice!) if we spend our time trying to fabricate something else.
Absolutely! It can be exchanged for a boudoir session, bridal session, perhaps a 1 year anniversary session down the road? If you can dream it up and it involves 2 people or less, we can make it happen!
"CHRISTINA WAS A DREAM TO WORK WITH."
"Being a photo lover, I felt it was very important that we found someone who was close in spirit- someone who understood Cam and I and our outlook. Christina has a gracious way about her and a keen eye for capturing authentic moments. We love that our photos speak. They speak of movement, genuine love, and natural beauty. We can hang these sacred moments up on the walls of the home we created together and not be ashamed. She made our day about us. It was not awkward in any way. Keeping in mind the natural tones that surrounded us on our day while editing, she added value to our photographs instead of taking away from them. Her fine art approach really sets her work apart. Christina truly has a gift and is passionate about her work and her brides/couples. What she creates moves others to follow and want to know more. I'm so grateful for the way Christina views life and love--taking in each moment...with [her] view, our story could not have been told better. Forever grateful. "
"WHERE TO BEGIN!"
"When I first met with Christina, I knew we would instantly click. First of all, photography aside, she is without a doubt a very genuine, thoughtful, and kind person. Her gentle spirit makes you feel like you can be honest and be understood. She cares deeply about you, your significant other, and your story... I was instantly blown away by her attention to detail and her confidence in getting the job done. It amazes me that she works alone and gets all the incredible shots that she does! Something that I appreciate about her so much is that she isn't afraid to step in when she needs to, but is also completely confident and comfortable with stepping back and letting people be themselves. This was important to me because I wanted all the special moments and gazes and emotions captured, but I didn't want to be distracted on our wedding day or be too "posed." She did a phenomenal job and I trusted her throughout the entire process. She exceeded all my hopes for our pictures!!"

"WORKING WITH CHRISTINA WAS A DREAM!"
"From the moment we met, I really felt like she wanted to get to know me as a person and as a bride. She answered my hundreds of questions, provided excellent insight as a recent bride herself and as a wedding professional, and truly gave us the most amazing pictures!"
