Besides running a full-time Wedding Photography business, I'm a professional freediver and have even competed on the USA Team!
Anyone who takes a freediving course learns that it's not such an adrenaline sport after all. It's about learning how to know yourself and how to relax completely. I'm not very meditative. I'm not very good at yoga. 

I just love being in the water and that's why I do it. 

I hope that as you are planning this huge day in your lives, you and your partner get to lean into your passions too. Doing things you both love, inviting people to celebrate you and everything that makes you awesome together!

I welcome working with everyone who cultivates magic in their lives: Magic trips to the beach, catching a beautiful wave, reading Harry Potter, watching Lord of the Rings, sipping the perfect cocktail or sliding down a perfect powder mountain.

And I of course have a special place in my heart for my salty, toes in the sand mer-people!

That's crazy

I'm a person of many passions. I grew up spending time by the beach in carmel by the sea, so naturally photography and a life long love of the ocean are two of mine. 

Let's make magic.

How long can you hold your breath?

You can trust when all is said and done you're going to have a gorgeous, colorful gallery filled with all the photos you care about and stress-free memories of the amazing party you threw.

Here's the thing--when you prioritize having fun on your day, you can see it in your photos. No fake laughs, no awkward posing, just movement and cuddling and hanging out together.

I'm about guiding you through portraits so that instead of feeling self-conscious taking photos, you are actually just in the moment having fun with your S.O.

I'm about planning your timeline together so we can get you to your Cocktail Hour.

I'm about Efficient family photos--having a plan going in and using my Production Manager skills to wrangle.

I'm about saying "hmm maybe not" or "hell yes!" to stepping away from your reception for sunset photos based on whatever you feel like in the moment.

If you want stunning, lively and colorful photos that show what a great time you're having while you focus on the party, I'm there!

"The pictures are absolutely stunning. They are all so beautiful and we get compliments on them all the time."

As a bonus, Christina is so great to have around during the pre-wedding pictures (and craziness). She is sweet and professional. Her calm and positive attitude was great for the day of. At one point she even tracked down some champaign for me!

""Christina was amazing from start to finish!"

She was generous about her time and was gracious with helping us capture really epic shots from a difficult location. Thanks for hiking with us and taking the time to learn about our relationship.
