Above and Beyond!
Charisma did an outstanding job for our June 2019 wedding! From the very beginning we knew Christina was right for the job. We met with her prior to signing the contract, and she was sure to go over every single detail and answered any question we had. After signing the contract, we picked a day for engagement pictures and Christina offered multiple different locations of great spots to take photos. It was so much fun getting to know her during our session and we enjoyed those couple hours! The turn around time for receiving our engagement photos was extremely quick and they turned out great! Once it got closer to the big day we met another time and hashed out all the details for the day of. We went to the venue and she mapped out places to take pictures and then we made a very detailed list of what photos to take and who would be in them. Christina brought this same list the day of the wedding and would check off each photo after we took it. I loved this because it ensured we got all the pictures we wanted and everything was so much more organized! Chris and Christina were a great team and literally captured every minute of our big day. They were so much fun to work with and we couldn't have been happier. The photos turned out amazing and have received so many compliments from friends and family! I also want to mention that the gallery Christina uses to upload pictures is very user friendly and so easy to share! We are so thankful for Chris and Christina and could not be happier with how well our pictures turned out. Documenting our big day was extremely important to us and they did not disappoint!Sent on 08/06/2019

Beautiful Images and Easy to work with!
Christina and Chris are truly the dream team. They were so fun to work with and made us feel so comfortable. Sometimes it can be awkward getting your photos taken (something I didn't think about before) and I was so thankful that Christina made us feel natural. She is quick to help with posing and we never stood there with no ideas on what to do. Not to mention, the photos turned out AMAZING. I've literally looked through them a million times and I feel that her style is truly timeless. It is fun to have "trendy" photos taken, but I know that I will look back on these and I won't be like, what was I thinking?! haha. I couldn't reccommend her more and look forward to maternity and family photos with her in the future!Sent on 08/19/2019
Charisma Photography's reply:Thank you Jourdan for the sweet words! The images of you and Tyson are still some of my favorite I've taken!! :)

Friendly and great photos!
Christina and her husband are such a great team to work with! She is so easy to talk to, it was like talking to a friend after just meeting. The day of our engagement photos there was a huge storm that came through, even tornado sirens were going off, but we waited it out and ended up taking great photos! Minus a little humidity, I thought the rain and puddles added some extra character to our photos. On our wedding day, she was amazing! She worked well with our videographer and treated everyone so with kindness. She knew our venue, so she already had the best spots picked out for photos which made things go so smoothly. She has such a great eye and creates amazing work! Thank you so much for being a part of our big day and capturing it so beautifully!Sent on 10/30/2018
