You will receive your photos in a carefully and thoughtfully edited, high-quality and beautifully curated gallery. I have photographed 200+ weddings and I love capturing the many emotions, events and details of your wedding day so that you can relive the precious moments for years to come. I provide each of my clients with personalized service and the pleasant, enjoyable experience that each of you deserves!

In 2012 I started my photography business upon graduating from Towson University with my B.A. in Art + Design: Photo Imaging.

For couples getting married at the Naval Academy, I am an Approved Business Partner with the NABSD.

    Fantastic Photography

    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.

    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.

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.
