NOW BOOKING 2024 WEDDINGS

Since childhood, I've been obsessed with capturing life's fleeting moments. Life is a unique experience full of beauty, and photography has the power to preserve these unfolding memories. As your photographer, I'm dedicated to capturing genuine moments – stolen glances, laughter among friends, connections, PERSONAL love, and organic moments. My goal is for your love to deepen as the sun sets on your special day.

What sets me apart is my dedication to getting to know you, ensuring a genuine portrayal of your day. I limit the number of weddings I take each year to provide the highest level of service. I am here to understand your vision, assist with planning, and seamlessly attend to every detail throughout the day, finding fulfillment in serving you.

If you are wanting a photographer who will cherish both the grand and in-between moments, and someone who genuinely cares about you and your love story - your search ends here.

Let’s frame your memories + love together.

photography is an investment, and i want you to know i'm invested in you, too.

I believe in capturing you as you truly are

ABOUT capturesbychristi

more than just your photographer

I am your location scouter, weather watcher, tissue holder, dress button-upper, tide-to-go stick holder, timeline planner, calm advocater, water provider, dress flufferer, tie straightener and more. This is because I care for you and your experience. 

get in touch

I am here to glorify God and love others. Through and through I have always been a laid-back person. I feel God designed me to be a source of peace and encouragement for couples while showing them the love of Christ.

As a photographer - if I can help people better experience their once in a lifetime moments - that brings a joy I cannot describe. I value connection, authenticity, transparency, joy, and creating an encouraging atmosphere for everyone - regardless of their background or if their beliefs are the same as mine.

the why behind what i do

My goal is to authentically capture your essence, blending traditional poses with prompts inspired by natural movement. I observe your natural interactions and aim to facilitate an effortless connection, guiding you through prompts that feel genuine and natural.

Relax; no need to worry about hand placement or poses. I balance guidance and letting you be in the moment, ensuring a smooth flow and giving you space to cherish each other. Your vision and meaningful moments take precedence. While trends may come and go, my commitment is to capture your love in a timeless manner.

My approach is about encouragement, creating a gallery that is timeless. It is my passion to document who you truly are in an authentic, personal, and intimate way.

QUICK FACTS

FOR THE SKIMMERS

- joanna & ryan

Christi perfectly balances fun and professional, and her joy and gratitude for this job made taking photos with her so easy. She made a point to get to know us well before our big day to ensure that our photos were the vibe we wanted and reflected our relationship well. I would recommend Christi to anyone looking for a servant-hearted photographer to beautifully and authentically capture you and your special moment.

Communication was seamless and she checked in with us leading up to our wedding date asking if we needed any support. Christi made us feel so good, within minutes of working with her we felt so comfortable and at ease. She perfectly captured the feeling of our wedding so seeing our wedding gallery felt like reliving the day. I seriously cannot stop looking at the photos. It was everything I could have imagined!
