Belle Plaine Minnesota Wedding Photographer Christa Reed

Photography is not simply a career for me, but a calling, and a huge part of my life.   

I believe you should enjoy being in the moment and let me take care of your photography.  I have the experience to find solutions to your photography challenges, be it a dark wedding venue, unexpected weather, very active children, or a hectic schedule.  I want to turn the fleeting beautiful moments of life into lasting pictures for you to hold close.


• Are you experienced?

Yes. I started my business in 2012 with the goal of making clients feel comfortable and joyful in their pictures. Before that, I was a photographer at a corporate studio. So, I've been a professional photographer for over a decade.

• Where are you located?

My home base is Belle Plaine, Minnesota, south of the Minneapolis St. Paul area. I travel for weddings & portraits in the Twin Cities, including Stillwater, Mankato, St. Cloud, Duluth. I will also travel in the continental United States, so if you're getting married someplace not traditional, like a national park or the mountains, I can get there.

• What do you do outside of photography?

Well, I'm constantly doing photography. It's a full-time job. I'm also the parent of a really awesome teenager and have two cats.

I love to road trip when I can. Sometimes just up north for an overnight, sometimes farther to places like Yellowstone.  I also enjoy reading, hiking, bonfires with friends, experimenting with new recipes, and listening to all varieties of music.

My husband and I were married in October, and we could not be happier with the work that Christa did. Everything from the initial engagement photo shoot to the end result wedding photo album turned out amazing, with both the quality and quantity of the photos being fantastic. Christa was flexible in planning meetings and willing to meet us close to our home. She was also very friendly and easy to work with and had great ideas for photos to be taken. Throughout the day, Christa and her assistant took time to photograph guests as well as props and other details (such as my flower bouquet, decorations, champagne bottles, groomsman’s gifts, etc.) that will be great to be able to look back on and remember in years to come. Christa’s main goal was clearly our satisfaction, and she definitely has a passion for photography. I would definitely recommend her for any type of photography, as she went above and beyond to make our experience working with her a positive one.

Andrea & Luke

Thank you so much for being such a special part of our wedding day. You did a wonderful job capturing such great moments of our special day. It’s a lot of fun to look through the photos and see all the details we brushed by during the busy day.
