Hi, I'm Christine, a wedding storyteller
You have found the one and I want to tell your love story - the details, the moments, the genuine emotion of your wedding day, in beautiful handcrafted images.
When I'm not eating cake at a wedding reception with one hand and my camera in the other, you might find me in a field with horses, or wrapped in a knit blanket at my computer editing beautiful weddings in Seattle or from far and wide. I also love to go for a walk in the forest with my Boston Terrier - Wilson, or explore a new hiking trail with my husband.

Do you pose people for portraits?
Yes, I do provide direction. The details and the connection are all about you. I work with your natural chemistry to make you feel comfortable and look great.
I feel awkward in front of the camera, can you help?
Of course. I tell the best bad jokes. I have a very natural, laid back working style to help you feel like you're just hanging out with a friend, yet I can wrangle a large group of extended family with ease (and more bad jokes). You'll be smiling and laughing (most likely at me) in no time!
Do I get all of the photos you take?
All galleries include each image that meets my professional standard. What you receive is a finished product. Not 100% of images taken, but 100% of the best images. Personal printing rights are included with your wedding package.
I don't want my images to be displayed publicly - is that something you can do?
Yes. You may request to have a fully private gallery and that your wedding not be displayed in my portfolio and other marketing materials, but, because my business is dependent on showing my most recent work to potential and future clients, an additional $1000 fee will be added to your package cost to compensate for the opportunity to use that work to represent my services.
Do you work with a shot list/photo requests?
Yes, in fact, I send out a photo request document to my clients a few months before the wedding so they can let me know the details, images, and family groups that they want captured on their big day! It also helps me to address possible scheduling conflicts and any other family info I may need to know before the wedding day so that I can give my clients the best possible service. I do however ask that clients refrain from requesting broad stylistic and artistic concepts, as they may not be consistent with my work or working style.
Every wedding, every day, every venue and every person is a blank canvas. My style is a mixture of what I see and feel, and what you see and feel on your wedding day. Part photojournalism, and part glam. I find the beauty in my surroundings and capture it.
