Christa is an absolute gem to work with and I couldn't be happier with our photos. She always responded immediately, no matter how many questions this crazy bride had! She also did an amazing job of dealing with our at-times crazy family members at the wedding :P She has a true gift and I would (and do!) recommend her to all of my family, friends, and any stranger I meet. I'm over the moon at the final product but that is just a small part of it - Christa was amazing the whole year and a half leading up to our wedding, from engagement photos to questions immediately answered any time day or night to the wedding day to our pictures. Thank you Christa!!!Sent on 06/09/2018

Highly Recommend ~ Nothing short of Amazing!
Christa was amazing throughout the whole process. She answered questions I had throughout the journey. When she showed up for the wedding she was well organized and ready to hit the ground running. She was very sweet and professional. She made taking pictures easy and didn't waste any time. She was all over during the reception making sure to get all sorts of shots. My husband and I loved working with her. What we saw so far is amazing and cannot wait to see the rest!! I would HIGHLY recommend her!Sent on 07/28/2019

Christa Rae Settle is the BEST photographer. She is so calm, easygoing, happy, positive, and professional. She gets along with everyone, and handles family dynamics well. She was very approachable when we had questions, never making us feel like we were asking too much. She also is such a talented photographer, capturing all of the moments and emotions of our special day so perfectly. We loved her natural, genuine style of photography. Our photos turned out too good to be true! We would hire her again in a heart beat, and hope to have her photograph more special moments in our lives! Can't recommend her highly enough.Sent on 08/13/2019
Discounted wedding photography packages are available to off-season weddings (January, February and March 2020 & 2021).
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.
