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!

I was SO at ease about my wedding day because I could tell she knew exactly what and when things needed to happen! You can tell she just LOVES what she does. I've been married almost 2 months now and have looked through all the pictures dozens of times but can't get enough!

FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, I COULD TELL THAT SHE WAS ORGANIZED, RESPONSIVE, AND ATTENTIVE TO DETAILS. CHRISTA TRULY GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND IN HER SERVICE. IT WAS WELL WORTH THE INVESTMENT FOR BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS THAT WE CAN ALWAYS LOOK BACK TO FOR A LIFETIME.

CHRISTA WAS ON TOP OF EVERYTHING EVERY STEP OF THE WAY AND WAS ALWAYS AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS, BIG OR SMALL. SHE WILL DO EVERYTHING SHE CAN TO MAKE THIS THE MOST SPECIAL TIME OF YOUR LIFE.

ESTATE & MUSEUM WEDDING

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 and donuts 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 my brides 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!
