For the wildly in love
& adventurous souls.
Most people would describe me as laid back, super friendly and someone who thrives off celebrating life's big and little moments! You know, the type of person who LOVES celebrating peoples birthdays, job promotions, baby announcements (obviously weddings!!) and literally anything else under the sun, Im that girl cheering you on! So you better believe I'll be your ultimate hype girl when it comes to your big day! I have super big heart, and love making people feel welcomed, included, comfortable & special. That being said, all types of love are welcomed and accepted here no matter your race, religion, sexual orientation, etc.! With a big heart comes a sensitive soul, so don't be surprised if you catch me tearing up during your vows or while your best friend makes there toast. Im an introverted extrovert, I love being social and meeting new people but I'm never the loudest person in the room. I will gladly give you and your loved ones prompts and keep your wedding party in check without being crazy over the top in your face 24/7. As much as I love a semi curated moment, I enjoy capturing moments as they naturally unfold, so I make sure to give you that space to allow those magical moments to happen. When it comes to portraits, stiff and super posed isn't my vibe! I use playful prompts that bring out your natural emotions and create effortless movement in your photos. Capturing moments you'll want to relive for the rest of your life!
whats my vibe?
WEDDING DAY IS HERE! I cant wait to help you feel and look your best! After you've had the most AMAZING day ever, you'll head off to your honeymoon and Ill begin the editing process! A sneak peek of 50-60 photos will be edited and delivered within a week fo your wedding day!

About 2-3 months before your wedding, Ill reach out to you to help build out your picture perfect timeline! This will include going through your family photo list, and bridal party shot lists. Once Ive gathered some more detailed info from you, Ill build out your timeline to reflect the photos you want captured! Making sure we block enough time to capture your dream shots is what makes for a laid back, stress free day!
I love capturing engagement shoots for my couples!! These take place Monday-Friday typically an hour before sunset or at sunrise. Not sure where to shoot? Don't worry Ive got you covered and can suggest some of my favorite locations as well as outfit inspo if you're struggling with that you should wear.
Once you pick a wedding package, Ill send over a contract and invoice for your deposit.

Head on over to my contact page and submit an inquiry! Let me know your wedding date, location and of course I want to hear all about you & your significant other, the more details the better!! Im more than happy to answer any questions you may have at this point as well!

“With her incredible talent aside, she is an absolute joy to work with.”

“Hiring Chris as our wedding photographer was the best decision I ever made. If I could go back and do it all over I would hire her every single time. She is the best of the best. She conducts herself with such confidence and has that natural eye for all the perfect shots you have always dreamed about..."
“Chris was amazing!!! I was nervous I was going to be awkward as I'm not the picture taking type but she made me and my fiancé feel so comfortable & confident. The pictures came out so beautiful, she has such a great eye for amazing shoots/backgrounds. I highly recommend!”
Some of my favorite photos are the ones where you can feel the emotions pouring out of the picture. Maybe its the single tear rolling down your significant others cheek as they see you for the first time, a huge laugh you let out listening to your maid of honors speech or the deep embrace from a loved one congratulating you after you've just said "I do". Regardless of the moment, I love to capture those moments full of raw emotion, because I fully believe a picture has the magical power of letting you relive the feeling of the moment in which it was taken in.
Im an expert at wedding day timeline planning, (but lets be real, sometimes life happens and things happen out of our control) when thats the case, I keep things calm, cool and collected to keep the day stress and worry free. I want you to be as relaxed as possible, so when it comes to photos and making sure we capture everything on your wish list, I got it covered! I will troubleshoot, brainstorm and prioritize the shots we need to get done, photos will be the last thing you'll have to worry about.
Not sure what to do with your hands?! Hate feeling awkward in front of the camera? I GOT YOU!! My approach to photography is a balance of capturing moments as they unfold, and creating opportunity for those raw emotions to come out through playful prompts while still grabbing a few of the classic portrait shots for nana.

You are wildly in love with your significant other and want a stress free wedding day when it comes to getting your photos taken.
You would consider yourself laid back, easy going, and a go with the flow type of couple! Wedding days require us to be flexible and things don't always go as planned, but you aren't going to let a little rain ruin your day. You make the best out of any situation, as long as you are together there is no storm (literally or figuratively) that you cant conquer and nothing is going to stop you from having the best day ever!
You value photos and want to prioritize taking time on your wedding day to capture meaningful moments and shots.
You are wanting instagram worthy photos with a mixture of timeless classic shots.
You love being outside! Shooting outdoors is my jam and I specialize in natural light photography. You are wanting that natural warm golden glow in your photos.
I book weddings & elopements anywhere between 6 months-1.5 years in advanced! Engagement shoots book 2-3 months in advanced and take place during the week days m-f typically an hour before sunset or at sunrise.
Wedding photos are delivered via an online gallery about 6-8 weeks after your wedding date. 4-6 weeks for elopements and 2-4 weeks for engagement sessions.
For reference I shoot about 80% of my weddings solo, Im super comfortable shooting a wedding on my own! That being said, there are certain situations in which I do think its necessary/beneficial! One example being during getting ready photos, if you and your partner are getting ready at two seperate locations driving distance apart, its a good idea for me to have someone with me to keep things moving and on track! Send me and email about this and we will chat more why you may or may not need one!
Within a week of your wedding I send over anywhere from 50-60 sneak peek wedding photos to give you a taste of your full wedding day experience, that way it holds you over until I can deliver the whole gallery 6 or so weeks later!
I enjoy smaller more intimate settings when getting to know people, which is why I really love getting to know my couples during their engagement shoot! This also gives you chance to get out any camera shy jitters, get a feel for how I shoot and what to expect on your wedding. Plus you get AMAZING photos of you and your significant other that can be used for save the dates, holiday cards or my personal fave the gram! Engagement shoots are complimentary when you book a wedding package! Travel fees may apply.
