Three Kinds of Freedom

02

Make yourself at home! 

Welcome

01

And I'm the kind of photographer who can give you an experience that allows you to be free. Free to be fully in the moment, free to be yourself, and free to savor your memories for a lifetime. I do this by being your friend and caring deeply about you as a couple, not just as a bride and groom. Read on to learn more about this experience!

Hi, I'm Christa!

Even though your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, your memory of it will inevitably fade. The heart of your marriage should not grow common place but treasured for a lifetime.

I enable my couples the freedom to savor their memories.

This is made possibly by documenting their wedding in a timeless and authentic way.

Free to savor your memories

No. Three

A wedding day only happens once and it flies by astonishingly fast. That is why you should spend it soaking in every last bit instead of being stressed and rushing from one thing to the next. 

I allow my couples to the freedom to be in the moment. 

I educate each of my couples how to eliminate stress and guide them through the day.

Free to be in the moment

No. Two

Beautiful and meaningful images can only be created when the subject is comfortable and almost forgets themselves. When it isn't about the photo itself, but about telling a story and capturing a moment.

I give my couples the freedom to be themselves.

One of the many ways I do this is by getting to know them as humans not just them as a bride and groom. 

Free to be Yourself

No. One

Your 

Freedom

Awaits

I've had the privilege of having my work featured many times in the last couple of years. It is truly humbling and would not have been possible without my amazing couples and their awesome vendors.

"Her photography is 100% worth the investment—take my word for it!"

Christa was our wedding photographer two years ago and we cherish the photos so, so much. Christa works with a refreshing balance of being highly personable and totally professional, and she actually makes it SO possible to be comfortable and natural in front of the camera. She goes above and beyond in communication and organization, which as a bride and groom you will more than appreciate.

Daniel + Kelsey

"Christa's images really captured us and our relationship."

We were so thankful Christa was our wedding photographer. She went above and beyond to communicate things well (and in a timely manner) while keeping such a beautiful, relational quality. She definitely became a friend of ours by the end of this journey. She has such a gift of putting her clients at ease, making them feel beautiful/handsome and like they can be silly and be themselves in front of the camera.

"You will NOT be disappointed with Christa - She is amazing." 

Christa was so accommodating and flexible from beginning to end. It's also obvious that she truly cares about her couples on a personal level. Christa's sweet and encouraging personality really allowed us to loosen up and relax-- five minutes into the session we were genuinely laughing and having a blast. Her photos are top notch, she's professional, and accommodating. We LOVE all of our photos and will use her again in the future!
