As a dorky middle school girl with braces, I thought I was going to be a poet. Yep. It's true. I filled tons journals with laughably cheesy poems. 

Time passed and my interest in writing haikus faded but my love for discovering and documenting beauty did not. In fact it only grew. After being paired with a passion of photography, I decided to make it my life's work to capture beauty and offer freedom in the process. 

That was 10 years ago and my passion has only been kindled by my degree in Fine Art Photography, the two years I spent interning and shooting for high-end wedding photographers, and the four years I've been photographing my own sweet couples.

I still cry at every “I do”, cheer with every kiss, and make every client a friend. And am ever more passionate about giving my couples the freedom to be themselves, to be in the moment, and to savor their memories for a lifetime.

And I have an embarrassing confession:

Behind the Camera

I'm Christa!

Hi friend, I'm Christa! 

I've always loved travel and adventure but as I've gotten older have loved tending to and creating a beautiful home. I don't think one has to eclipse the other!

believe that being a homebody + a travel lover are not mutually exclusive

Being out in my garden and reading my bible is something I need every day to feel like a thriving and anchored human.

I've loved reading since I was a kid! I'm always ready three different books at a time. To me a light read is 400 pages and anything less is almost not worth the emotional investment.
