Amazing photographer and person!
Christa was fantastic! She has a calendar online which makes scheduling meeting with her so easy! She was right on time for all calls and early the day of the wedding. Christa was polite, professional and super accommodating to me wanting to get as many photos done prior to the ceremony. Even on a VERY hot day and with a rather annoying groomsmen Christa and her team were great! She even sent us a few sneak peek photos the next day and i loved them! Highly highly recommend!

Christa photographed our engagement and our wedding, and she is fantastic. Wonderful pictures at a great price. We had to reschedule because of Covid, and Christa was proactive, professional, and extremely helpful the whole time. Cannot recommend highly enough.Sent on 06/25/2021

OUTSTANDING- one of the best decisions I've made
I knew that the photography was going to be very important to me when I first started planning for our wedding and booking Christa truly exceeded my high expectations for beautiful images. Christa did photos for our engagement as well as for our wedding and she was truly exceptional. Not only are the images she shot remarkably beautiful but she was a BREEZE to work with. When other vendors would take days to call or email back when I asked a question, Christa would respond in minutes. She was professional and clearly very organized which made the wedding day photos run smoothly for all the many people involved. She had an impeccable attention to detail while also being personable and laid back with my bridal party. I know we will cherish these images from our engagement session and our wedding for the rest of our lives. I truly can't recommend her highly enough. From start to finish, hiring Christa was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding.Sent on 11/04/2020
Engagement sessions are a complimentary add-on in select wedding collections if you would like to have one photographed!
Team of Christa Rae Photography
Owner & Photographer
I am an Annapolis based full time wedding photographer! Wedding photography is my full time career and passion, and I dedicate myself to 30 - 40 couples every year, giving each couple the personalized service and amazing experience they deserve! I strive to be friends and fierce cheerleaders of my couples, because you should not only love the photos your photographer produces, but also love the person behind the camera.
My love and passion for photography began about 15 years ago when I picked up a camera for my high school's newspaper. I fell in love with capturing people and moments, and I knew immediately that I was going to college to study photography and I started dreaming big.
After graduating from Towson University in 2012 with my B.A. in Art + Design: Photo Imaging, Christa Rae Photography, was born.
Since 2012, I have photographed over 200 weddings in my 9 year career as a wedding photographer.
Some of my favorite things: The Office, Parks and Rec, The Vampire Diaries, Jonas Brothers, Foster the People, traveling, Korean BBQ, seafood, being at the beach or poolside, attending concerts, and coffee shops.
Christa is lovely to work with and takes amazing photos! We worked together a couple of months ago and we worked very well together. She was wonderful with the couple and their families, working with them to make sure those special pictures were taken and moments captured so they can and will be able to have those memories of their beautiful wedding day!
Love, love, love working with Christa Rae Photography, their style and images are always perfection!
If you're looking for a genuine photographer, a true and passionate professional, who can depict and document pure emotion from her subject(s)...whether it be a newly engaged couple, newlyweds on the biggest day of their lives, a firstborns first moments on film, a headlining band or artist making their way on tour...Christa is your person. After working with her in the industry, and getting to know her on a personal level...she's the real deal.
