love is love

it doesn't matter who you are - love, joy and adventure belong to everyone

I firmly believe in equality for all, science matters, and following Leave No Trace.

My full day and multi-day packages include a stunning handcrafted fine art wedding album you can thumb through and share your story for years to come. Your photos aren’t meant to stay on your computer in a folder that you never open again. What is the whole point in hiring a photographer in the first place? It’s for you to be able to reminisce and revel over the incredible way you chose to celebrate your future. Together we will design a custom family heirloom that will forever bring you back to all of your feels. 

And don’t worry… I will help you every step of the way! From the initial design to helping you choose between cover material options, fonts and colors and even a keepsake box. Your wedding album will be something you will love forever.

Mini packages may add an album starting at $1200.

You won't find many (or any) photographers that also include this...  

and if all that sparked joy... it get's better!

DO BOTH!

My packages are designed so you can get creative with your time and customize your own experience. You only get married once! So let’s aspire for what will bring YOU the most joy, the most adventure, the most laughter, the most LIFE!

Your entire day should be about maximizing joy, comfort, and excitement. Heart stopping photos are just that sweet bit of syrup on top. So if you’re feeling stuck between a warm, intimate party with loved ones and an adventurous excursion with just the two of you - don’t be.

Her calm and fun-loving demeanor MAKES IT EASY TO JUST BE YOURSELF. She is extremely professional, organized, and well-prepared leading up to the day of your event. I can't recommend Christina enough, and my family will be asking her to take more photos as we grow in size over the coming years. THANK YOU, CHRISTINA!

Christina is seriously the most friendly and helpful person we had the pleasure of working with. She really took the time to get to know us, our wedding details and our expectations. our wedding was completely DIY, so she helped us build a timeline and really hammer out the final details that ultimately led to the most PERFECT day. my husband and I could not be happier with the final gallery. Christina was able to capture the spirit of the evening as her work is truly stunning. Overall, it was just a fun, easy, and exciting experience! Definitely recommend!

Christina was WARM and WELCOMING from the beginning. She captured our elopement in Lake Tahoe, CA, Lakeside on a dock. Her artistic eye and creative intuition enhanced our vision immensely. We can be shy, and SHE HELPED US FEEL COMFORTABLE AND NATURAL. Christina documented the sweetest moments with my husband and I, in such a timeless, candid way. Thank you!! Don’t hesitate, just book her!

We were so at ease after we hired Christina. She was sweet, thoughtful, supportive and fun! Our day of experience was easy, and Christina is why. She PLANNED WELL, was so PATIENT, and GENUINE. She made me and my family and husband comfortable throughout our time together. WE COULDN'T HAVE BEEN HAPPIER. Christina was the best decision we made for our day! We love our photos more than we could have imagined. She made our intimate wedding appear glamorous in all of the right ways, and captured so much love. Hire her and don’t look back. You will be so grateful!

You won’t find a better photographer! Christina was so sweet and personable. She made sure to get all the photos I specifically asked for and added some of her own flare that turned out so beautiful! I feel so lucky that we had her capturing our elopement day with our loved ones. I cannot thank her enough for our STUNNING PHOTOS!!! Take my word for it (And I’m a bit of a photo-snob) Book this lady!!!

The day of, she had so much ENTHUSIASM AND WARMTH it made it easy for us and our guests. We got a sneak peak just days later with the best photos! The final gallery had so many more photos than I expected. So happy to work with her!
