( reviewed on the Knot)

Christa was wonderful to work with and her work is gorgeous! She made my fiancé and I feel completely comfortable while taking our wedding photos. The photos are reflect us and our relationship, but she made them so much better with unique shots and an artistic lens. They truly look like art, she clearly has an eye for color and staging when we were just a mess of emotions. Our wedding photos made so many family members cry and we will treasure them forever thanks to her hard work and expertise. Thank you, Christa! Also bonus – Christa arrived early and stayed late for us, plus we got our wedding photos so much faster than other couples I know!

Benefits of booking:

My mission is to support and celebrate you with wedding photography so you get:

  • Engagement/pre-wedding photos- experience what photography is like with me before your wedding.
  • Personalized photography planning with a wedding timeline & family portrait list- so you know what’s happening when
  • Clear rescheduling policies included in your contract
  • easy to access online documents
  • A dedicated photographer with 10 years of real wedding experience

Wait: What if you feel awkward in front of the camera?

Every single person I photograph says this. Every. One.

It can be stressful to think about your portraits. But here’s the truth: You and your partner are amazing and beautiful and so good together! And that’s a big part of what makes your pictures beautiful.

The other part comes from working with an experienced photographer who will put you at ease.

We’re going to talk, we’re going to laugh, I’m going to keep the poses spontaneous and natural. That free engagement session you get will help you get to know me so I won’t be a stranger with a camera. You’ll feel awesome about your pictures!

A little about me: Nature is my refuge.  Hiking, road trips, rock hounding, and bonfires under the stars. I’m mom of 1 teenager and 2 cats.   I’m fueled by lots of coffee, books, documentaries, family time and singing out-loud to my favorite songs in the car.

I started my wedding photography business in 2012, and am celebrating 10 years of weddings! Woo!!
