For the classy, southern bride who is full of joy and has an unmistakable love for her fiancé.

WEDDINGS

NAVIGATE

FROM BRIDE-TO-BE TO MRS.!

the process

1. Consultation & Booking

I have a goal to either meet with, or talk over the phone with every bride-to-be before booking! This ensures we'd be a great fit, and allows me to learn more about you and your story! If we want to take the next step, I'll send a deposit & contract over to make it official!

2. Engagement Session

I include a complimentary engagement session with my package for a few reasons! It allows you and your love to feel more comfortable in front of my camera, and is great practice for the wedding day since we'll do the same poses! It's also a chance for me to get to know you two as a couple even more, and serve you better on your wedding day!

3. Timeline Planning

After shooting weddings for 4 years, I've learned how much time spent on each area of the wedding day is best for photos for the flow of the day! I'll walk you through your custom timeline to allow for a smooth wedding day, and time for gorgeous images to happen!

4. Wedding Day

WE MADE IT! You'll be all set on your wedding day since our timeline will be set, you'll have a guide from me on what to have ready when I arrive, and it's time for you to get MARRIED! I'll be with you every step of the wedding day, and will be sure to give you a big hug when I arrive (and when I see you after you're MARRIED!)!

5. Online Gallery

I ask for 5 weeks, and I'll have your online gallery to you! I go through the thousands of images I take, and select the best ones for you so you aren't scrolling through duplicates or photos that need some changes! After I edit your images to be sure they are light, airy, and elegant, I'll upload them to an online gallery that's available for 10 years, and allows you to download all the images at once!

6. Album Design

You are able to add on an album at any time during the process! My albums are high quality and custom! I'll let you know when the album will be ordered, and send a proof of the final album allowing 2 rounds of edits so you get exactly what you're hoping for!

what the christa rene brides are saying!

the reviews

OH MY OH MY WE LOVE CHRISTA!! Just 6 days after our wedding we had a full gallery of pictures to swoon over as we wrapped up our honeymoon. It's one thing for us to have loved our photography experience, but it's another when you have family and friends who rave about the photographer. Her job became so much more than snapping shots of us dressed up, she truly took care of us! All the way down to putting my shoes on and helping me with my hair! Christa has customer service as good as Chick-fil-A :) She went above and beyond, and asked me "how are you" more than most of my friends. Not to mention, her work is flawless. Our pictures are elegant, classic, and capture beautiful moments of the day. Hiring Christa was one of our most confident decisions through the wedding process and she is well worth the investment!

Working with Christa was the absolute best. She is the sweetest person ever and she truly cares about you through the entire process. You are not only her client but her friend as well. We were able to take both our engagement and wedding photos with Christa as well as my bridals. Through each session and the wedding, Christa was full of joy and you can tell she loves what she does. Through the heat on our June wedding, she never once complained but instead tried to make the photo process as smooth as possible. We are truly blessed to have worked with her and by the way - she takes amazing photos! Go with Christa - she's the best!!!

We could not have chosen a better photographer if we tried!! Christa is the best hands down. Her personality is infectious, and her skills are bare none. She has the kindest heart and skills that match . You will not regret hiring her for her your big day!!! Even my husband said pictures were painless!

WE absolutely LOVED working with her. From the very beginning, I could tell that she was organized, responsive, and attentive to details. Christa reached out to me multiple times throughout the months leading up to the wedding to make sure things were going smoothly and all questions were answered and even took me out to coffee on more than one occasion to check in with me. Christa truly goes above and beyond in her service. Early on, she sent me a beautiful package with her wedding guide and a handwritten letter and other personalized gifts. I went back to that wedding guide multiple times when I was planning my wedding timeline and so much more. Lastly, I cannot leave out that we received our wedding photo gallery within a couple weeks after our wedding!!!!! You seriously can't beat that. Christa made sure that we were taken care of - before, during, and even after our wedding. I'm so glad we chose Christa to be our photographer and know that it was well worth the investment for beautiful photos that we can always look back to for a lifetime. Highly recommend!!

Christa was such a pleasure and joy to work with and my husband and I are so glad she was a part of our big day!! She is one of the most professional people I have ever met but also brings humor and kindness to her work. She was on top of everything every step of the way and was always available for questions, big or small. My husband and I loved working with her throughout the wedding process and made us both feel comfortable. And her pictures are simply AMAZING!! After looking at other rates for photographers we thought that Christa also had the best value at the absolutely best quality. If anyone asks me for an opinion for wedding photographers, my response will always be Christa Rene!!

It takes a LOT to plan a wedding! That is why my desire is to do more than simply show up on the wedding day. I make it my goal to help each bride throughout the whole process of planning her wedding. 

I want to be a support and friend by building relationships with my brides and being available to help in any way I can. Whether it's meeting for coffee, or a phone call at any time throughout the process, my brides get top priority! I want to be sure I do my part to make sure they are as prepared as possible for the wedding day. 

I view it as an honor to capture the first moments of a couple becoming husband and wife and to preserve the memories of that day. Thank you for considering me to capture the light, joy, and elegance of your wedding day!

MY PURPOSE

these publications

as seen in

Christa books weddings for brides she believes she'd be a great fit working with! She seeks to provide the best experience she can for her brides as the lead photographer. Wedding packages include a complimentary engagement session, 8 hours of wedding day coverage, an assistant to the lead photographer, and high resolution digital files. Albums & additional coverage are √°-la carte.

Christa also offers an option for brides to book weddings under her associate photographer, Morgan. This allows Christa the privilege of working with more brides through the planning process, but Morgan is trusted with the role of lead photographer for the engagement session and wedding day! The same items are included with this package as listed above. The images are edited in Christa's signature style, and both Christa & Morgan are readily available for questions along the way!

To learn more about either of these options, contact Christa to inquire!
