Christa was so professional and wonderful to work with! She did our engagement photos, wedding photos and now creating our wedding photo albums. She beautifully captured our day and we are so grateful she was our photographer.Sent on 04/09/2020

Would recommend to anyone!
Christa is an incredible photographer and we are so happy we booked her to capture our wedding and engagement photos. My wife and I weren’t quite sure what to expect taking a bunch of intimate photos in front of a stranger, but Christa made us feel comfortable and like we were with friends. We are the most impressed with all of the small moments Christa captured of our friends and family. She was super prepared, having our timeline down to the minute, and was flexible when things inevitably changed during the wedding day.
She was very quick to respond to our questions and usually got back to us the same day. We received a sneak peek within 24 hours of the wedding and engagement shoots, and had over 1000 photos of the wedding within two weeks! We have been recommending her to all of our friends getting married in the area, you are in good hands with Christa!Sent on 03/25/2020

I will recommend Christa 1000 times over!
Christa was our very first vendor that we booked. She would always answer all my questions so quickly, she was essential in helping me create a timeline for the wedding day, and she made us feel on top of the world. From the very beginning we had Christa climbing onto of crazy obstacles and standing in the freezing cold for us. She did all of that with the biggest smile on her face. She made sure she captured the best photos for us. We really felt like we made a friend out of Christa, someone we will always cherish for being such an ESSENTIAL part of our wedding. The engagement photos were absolutely fantastic and the sneak peeks that we received already were breathtaking. Please do not look any further, Christa is the photographer you need for your wedding. Once you book with her, you do not need to worry about anything else. She was the ONLY vendor that I could say that for! Thank you Christa!!!!Sent on 11/19/2019
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.
