Chrissy is the BEST!
Chrissy was amazing from the beginning to the end! My husband and I can be somewhat camera shy and Chrissy's enthusiasm, energy, confidence helped to drew us out of our shells. When we first met her for coffee, we clicked right away, and I knew this was someone I could trust to capture my wedding day. She loved all of our wedding ideas and made suggestions along the way so that our day could be the best. We did our engagement shoot with Chrissy at the UC Riverside Botanical Garden (we wanted a desert look), and it really helped us to get to know each other and become more comfortable posing in the front of the camera. Chrissy gave us directions, but everything felt natural. The pictures came out gorgeous! The album with our engagement pictures is proudly displayed in our home, and all of our family and friends compliment the pictures when they look through it. In preparing for the wedding, Chrissy had a detailed questionnaire to help know what specific things we wanted - it included lots of things I wouldn't have thought of! We opted to do a first look before the ceremony, and I'm thankful we did because it gave my husband and I time to have pictures of just us. Chrissy made taking the bridal party pictures fun (from the groomsmen tossing the groom into the air to us gals strutting toward the camera) and the family pictures efficient (we both have somewhat large, and on my side, loud, families - she made everything go smoothly). We got our final gallery of pictures around a month after our wedding (much sooner than expected - especially during peek summer wedding season), and every picture highlighted and captured the love and celebration of the day. I'm incredibly thankful to have found Chrissy! If you're looking for a dedicated, enthusiastic, professional, and amazingly fun photographer to work with, Chrissy is the one!Sent on 08/25/2019

Best kept secret!
Where to even begin! If you don’t even consider hiring Chrissy you are seriously missing out. Not only on having a great vendor, getting great photos, but having a lifelong friend! Everything about our experience with Chrissy was over the top epic! First off our first chat solidified that she was going to be the one to be there on our special day. We immediately bonded over life, love, friends and more! Our engagement shoot felt like more of a date night than it did getting the traditional “awkwardly posed” engagement pictures. And our wedding....from the second she walked in the door to the second she packed up and left for the night she was there to not only capture our night, but keep the groomsmen in check, make sure I was taken care of and the list goes on. I’ve been in a lot of weddings which also comes with being photographed by a lot of photographers. Hands down the most comfortable I have ever felt and the most GORGEOUS I have ever felt in photos. Not only does she return photos super quick so it makes you relive your day over and over, she has such a unique style it makes you crave more! Our photos are already hanging on our walls and we will forever be grateful to the wonderful person she is!Sent on 06/12/2019

Will make your dreams come true
Where to even begin on how AMAZING this woman is. From her portfolio and our first chat, I knew she was the one. She was exactly what I was looking for, but I had no idea how perfect the experience would be. She is so easy and fun to talk to, responds right away and will listen to your creative or crazy ideas-as mine were! The photographs she took are so priceless and irreplaceable to me, that I feel forever indebted to her. She not only gave me the best gift I’ve ever received (GORGEOUS photos of my Husband and me, and a photo of my Father and me that makes me cry every. single. time.) but also was an amazing friend to me on our day. She felt like part of the family. She will get to know you, and from there work her magic to capture YOU. I promise you will walk away with memories of your wedding that exude raw emotion and perfectly capture every moment. And you get to keep that FOREVER.Sent on 05/30/2019

Chrissy was amazing to work with! Her photos are beautiful and all the subtle angles well thought out. Chrissy tries out loads of positions in order to get the most out of a shoot. We were really impressed with her photographs and wish she lived closer so we could work with her more frequently! You will be very happy with choosing Chrissy as your wedding photographer!
Chrissy has this magical ability to bring her shining personality to the table--making you laugh and feel so comfortable in your own skin--while still allowing her clients to shine bright in the spotlight. She is vivacious, kind, and is crazy talented. Her stunning photography speaks for itself.
Chrissy does such a great job! All of her picture are amazing!! She pay great attention to detail by having her clients pose in the most flattering ways, but also capturing all those candid moments between the bride and groom that show the natural love and excitement on your special day. She also makes sure to capture all the little details from flowers, to rings, to place cards so that you can remember your special day forever.
