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

“One of the easiest decisions that we made regarding our wedding plans was to choose Christa as the photographer for our wedding! We were terribly impressed with the photographs in her portfolio but her background in photographing and capturing such incredible moments at concerts and live music performances convinced us that she was the perfect shooter for our special day. We had a terrific initial meeting with her and told her that we wanted her to photograph our wedding before it was over. In addition to how easy she made the whole process of planning our shoot, she was also enormously helpful in planning several other aspects of our wedding, even recommending some other vendors that we ended up using. On the day of our wedding, we did a first look and Christa created some gorgeous shots of us at the Maryland State House, on Francis Street, Main Street and at the City Dock. She did a wonderful job of making the process easy and fun! Once we were at the venue, she faded into the background to capture some wonderful moments during our ceremony and then did a fantastic job of corralling family and friends for some beautiful portraits just outside our venue, the Powerhouse Building on West Street. Once the Reception began, she was capturing the more significant highlights of the evening while also discovering a lot of smaller, more intimate moments between us and our closest family and friends. We were very impressed when we saw the preview shots that she sent us the week after our ceremony. This couldn't begin to prepare us for how astounded we were with the quality of the pictures we saw once she had completed her editing process! We have already looked through the album multiple times and it has been like reliving our wedding day all over again! We were beyond pleased with the spectacular job that she did in documenting the most important day of our lives and have already discussed working with her again!”

From the moment we met Christa and went through her portfolio to getting a sneak peak of pictures the day after our wedding, we were absolutely thrilled with her professionalism and amazing work. Christa took amazing picture of us and our dog at both the engagement shoot and wedding. She was also very patient with our friends and family that were always missing when needed for pictures. You will not be disappointed if you choose Christa. We received over 900 pictures from our wedding day about two weeks after the wedding and we are having a very hard choosing which pictures to print or make albums with because they are all perfect moments from our day.Sent on 04/18/2019
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.
