Christman Photography Review of our engagement and wedding

Where to begin…the winter of 2020. I got engaged and out of nowhere I was throwing our names around to win an engagement session giveaway with any photographer (it was around Christmas time hence the reasoning for the giveaways). Then one morning my mother-in-law sent me a Facebook engagement session giveaway with Christman Photography. I read the recommendations and all I had to do was tell my husband and I’s story. So that is what I did and within the next couple of days we had a zoom meeting with Preston Christman. We got to know each other and everything Christman photography had to offer, and we were one in many people who put our names in for this giveaway, so we thought there was no chance we were winning. But we watched the live feed of Preston and his wife Laurette announcing the winners of the giveaway and we were selected. We were so excited to being able to work with such a fun person from the first encounter we had with Preston over zoom.

We ended up having our engagement session on October 2021 at Lockridge Park. We have never been to this park before, but I wanted a fall themed engagement session, so I trusted Preston Christman with giving me a couple options to pick from and I was stunned with how these pictures turned out. Anyways on first official in person encounter, Preston and Laurette were warm and welcoming people. Throughout the engagement session we had many laughs with our dog Max, leaves being thrown, Preston getting his butt wet for the perfect picture, and even Preston helping Bryce by holding his hand and teaching him how to hip bump and swing, you had to be there. We had such a blast and once we got a preview of our pictures, I knew right away that I wanted to book them for our wedding. Even after looking through Christman Photography on Facebook and Instagram it just made me feel even more confident about picking them to capture our big day. So, I made sure to secure my spot with them for September 2, 2023, since I knew if I didn’t secure our date sooner than later, I might have missed our chance and I’m glad I did not!

Now was the fun part planning how our wedding day would be planned out. We had a one-on-one phone call with Preston and Laurette to discuss the time frame of our wedding to make sure we captured everything we wanted to for our special day. We were able to plan everything the way we both pictured it and the photos at the end did not disappoint and it was planned and captured above our expectations. Before, during and after the ceremony the pictures that were captured seem magical and don’t seem real, they are breathtaking. From the pictures at our houses with family and friends to the church ceremony and the many people that came to celebrate with us. Then the pictures taken in Centralia, PA and at the Cardinal Brenan school grounds make it seem like these places are not even real and they just blow us away. We had so much fun dancing the night away and even had our special last dance together captured forever in picture.

Next on our wedding adventure with Christman Photography was planning our wedding album. We thankfully had a couple weeks to look through the pictures and know what we wanted in our album. So, we took our trip to Preston and Laurette’s studio where they had our album pre-made through the computer and took us on our journey through it via slide show with our first dance song in the background which made me a bit teary eyed reliving the moments shown on the screen. Afterwards we were able to customize the album how we wanted by removing and adding pictures along with the placement of pictures which makes it bittersweet that we can create our album how we want together with Preston and Laurette. We even got to customize everything from the cover to the color and all. When all was said and done, we decided to go back down to their studio to pick up our album in person. We were blown away by how incredible it turned out. Overall, I am so happy we decided to use Christman Photography for our engagement and wedding journey and hope they will come along for the ride for many more sentimental moments we have throughout the years. So, if you are looking for a photographer, I highly recommend Christman Photography you can check them out on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, or their website you will not be disappointed.

An integral part of our special day

The Christman's were more than just photographers for us. They helped in building the excitement for our special day before, during, and after the event. They spent time with us, got to know who we were as a couple, and will make sure to reminded us that the process should be fun and enjoyable more than anything. During our wedding, they were a large source of our joy and among rush of the day's events, they often pulled us aside for little photo ops where we could just focus on one another. In many ways, those little respites for pictures were some of our happiest memories of our wedding and it would not have been the same had they not been part of the day. When all was said and done, we felt like we had friends with us and not just photographers. They have an amazing eye for good photos. We've gotten many compliments on how beautiful the wedding photos turned out. Our wedding album is beautiful and we have many photos that bring us back to how we felt that day to enjoy for a lifetime. We would easily recommend the Christman's for anybody looking for high quality wedding photos, fun and stress free photo sessions, and adding personalities whom bring light and joy to your special wedding day!

Summer Solstice Elopement

My hubby and I planned our elopement and found the perfect spot to get married - Columcille Megalith Park and we needed a photographer.
From the first email and first call we knew that Christman Photography was who we wanted to shoot our special day.

We loved working with them and they made our magical day even more magical.

A dream to work with and you’ll be even more happy to see the photos! Seriously as an artist myself I am not always impressed with photographers but these photos were honestly breath taking and beautiful.

If you plan on Eloping we highly recommend! Especially if you are self uniting! 🖤

Preston Christman
Preston Christman

Hey there! I grew up in Catasauqua, PA, in "small-town USA." After high school, I had a few odd jobs to pay the bills but didn't know what I wanted to be when I grew up. A few years later, I decided to enroll in a local technical school where I majored in criminal justice. During this endeavor, I quickly realized that I didn't know where I wanted to land after graduation. However, I did know that I did not want to be a police officer, work in a prison system, or pursue law. Soon after graduation, everything changed when I purchased and held my first camera. I wanted to learn as much as possible about this mechanism and unleash its potential. It soon became clear that I wanted to capture the memories of my friends and family. Soon after that, I could offer my eye for photography to everyone. Candid moments are my absolute favorite to capture, as they share your true emotions at that very second. My wife, Laurette, is my partner in crime. Together, we make one heck of a dynamic duo. Laurette offers a creative eye, bold ideas, & is the detail QUEEN! Altogether we help to make your experience personal and unforgettable.

Fun Facts 🍺

~Stouts & Sour beers are my absolute favorite. ~On Laurette and I's first date, I was so nervous that I commented on her shoes after we hugged each other. ~Coffee. I kinda need this. ~I occasionally dress up as a Stormtrooper for various charity, sporting & comic con events. I guess you can call me a Star Wars fan. ~I can't swim to save my life. No, REALLY, I can't swim. ~I am deathly afraid of spiders and scare easily. ~Our furbabies Chester, Jade, & Honey are life!

Why hello there!

So you wanna know a little about me, eh? Well, grab your favorite beverage and a bowl of snacks because you are in for a ride! I grew up as a small-town girl with a BIG heart for arts and crafts of all kinds. I was a dancer almost all my life and even began instructing at the age of 12. You name it, I danced it! From hip-hop to gymnastics and jazz to tap. I poured my heart and soul onto that dance floor every chance I was given. Believe it or not, I didn’t always know that I had the creative eye and intense passion for photography like I do now. The more Preston would photograph, the more I couldn’t wait to meet the amazing clients he always boasted about. I wanted to be hands-on, interactive, and help with his business at any open opportunity I was given. I’ve been working in the medical field for nearly 10 years and was also continuing my education to pursue a nursing degree. At the beginning of 2021, I was accepted into a nursing program and given the chance of a lifetime, or so I thought for many years. After what seemed like months of inner conflict, I came to the realization that I needed to do what truly made me HAPPY. I declined acceptance to the program and decided to dive headfirst into Christman Photography. I’ve always carried the passion for taking care of other people and this new journey will allow me to do just that. If you made it this far into my autobiography, thank you for taking the time to get to know me! I really look forward to getting to know you and capturing your unforgettable moments!

Fun Facts 🍷

~Hot lattes and wine give me life. ~Preston and I performed a surprise dance at our wedding that included a lightsaber battle and rump-shaking. ~I love creative writing and bringing words to life. ~We have 2 feline furbabies, Chester and Jade, who I love more than life itself. ~I am a lover of all animals but have a small obsession with otters and pigs. ~I've been told on many occasions that I should be a stand-up comedian. Ha!

Hey There,

I'm Jo Robertson, Preston & Laurette's Virtual Assistant from the UK, I'm so excited to be here!!

I'm a welsh 40-something-year-old mum, wife, owner of a very cute beagle, and a Birth Photographer who lives in a small seaside town called Porthcawl in South Wales, UK. Many moons ago... I studied photography at University and have dabbled in lots of photography genres but black-and-white documentary photography has always been my go-to and love. Throughout my early twenties, I hopped onboard a cruise ship as a photographer and traveled the world, it's where I met my husband. After cruise ships, I worked for a short time with the local press and eventually ended up working in a photographic lab for the police (long story!)

I feel so honored to be part of Preston & Laurette's dynamic, super-talented, awesome duo and I can not wait to help make your journey with Christman Photography a stand-out, fun, and mega-memorable experience!

Fun Facts 📚

I'm OBBSSEED with Antiques and anything vintage and flea markets are my happy place. I'm a huge David Lynch fanatic and a massive lover of old-school Horror films. I wear my socks inside out 99% of the time (except when brand new) I have far too much sugar in my tea but love a good cuppa. Buying photography books is a weakness of mine and visiting galleries and museums is a favorite pastime. I love all things art-related, cinema, theatre, poetry, and music. I host a podcast called The Adventures of a Birth Photographer and finally, I relish steaming hot baths and jumping into a freshly made bed at the end of the day! I can't WAIT to connect with YOU!!
