I've always been the "friend with a camera," a passion I like to think i inherited from my grandad. my grandad documented nearly every family event, from choir and basketball games to weddings (where he'd sneak in his dslr). In his office sits his computer with gigabytes of photos from childhood moments and his closet stand rows of VHS tapes of family vacations and Christmases. His dedication to capturing these priceless memories was a gift. he was always present, supportive, kind, and a natural storyteller.

my grandad went to be with Jesus in December 2023. my heart behind what I do is to carry on his legacy and maintain and implement the heart and values he had in his craft with his cameras.

As your photographer, I'm dedicated to capturing all the moments, big and small. By intentionally limiting the number of weddings I take, I ensure the highest level of service. I prioritize understanding your vision and navigating the planning process, attending to every detail seamlessly.

If you're looking for a photographer who genuinely cares about your story, your search ends here.

photography is an investment, and I am fully invested to you, too.

I believe in capturing you as you truly are

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.

Christi was amazing in every way! She was able to command the day in the most respectfully! Meaning she was able to position everyone and made sure our needs were met to the best of her ability! Very professional and the photos are something that we will cherish forever!!

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!
