About

$4,000 Most Popular Price

Most days you can find me reading memoirs, drinking tea and honey, and snuggling up next to my husband for an episode of Seinfeld. I am a big nature lover and enjoy hiking on the weekends. Luckily the Bay Area is full of local parks and trails to explore within just 30 minutes! I am passion-driven, an indie-music lover, a wife to my amazing husband, Cameron, and a homebody. People often refer to me as a jokester and a loyal friend. I love serving the world by capturing stories of people madly in love, and creating beautiful imagery that’s enjoyed for generations.

My approach to photography is two-fold. I love to mix photojournalism and beautifully composed portraits. I love to capture your day as it is unfolding – laughter with your girls getting ready, the tear in the groom’s eye when he sees his bride for the first time, and parents boogying down on the dance floor! I also create beautiful portraits with my couples, guiding you in to natural poses so you look your best, but giving you actions that create movement, freedom to be yourselves, sharing a laugh, and capturing real love between the two of you. Let’s be honest, being in front of the camera can be nerve-wracking, and I make sure you shake off those nerves, have a good time and let your true selves shine through. If you struggle with not knowing what to do in front of the camera, I’m here for you!

I was once in your shoes – being a previous bride myself, I know what you’re going through! I’m there for you every step of the way, providing you valuable information to get the best photos on your wedding day, helping you with timelines and other considerations. I’m happy to help my couples in any capacity, not just with regards to photography.

    Christy is outstanding! Highly recommend.

    Christy was recommended to us by a friend who has worked with her a number of times. After our initial call, I knew that we wanted to work with Christy. She was so friendly, organized, and you could tell it was important to her to help get her clients everything they were looking for. We first had our engagement photo shoot and it turned out beautifully. For us, it was awkward to be photographed, but with Christy's friendliness, "what to expect" booklet, and direction they turned out beautifully. In preparing for the wedding, Christy and I chatted quarterly and in the months leading up to the wedding, she shared a comprehensive wedding booklet. This booklet was super helpful in making decisions around the timeline, whether to do a first look (she convinced me we should and boy was she right), and many more things. On the day of the wedding, Christy was prompt, decisive in her locations, direction, and needs. As we were shooting the family photos, things got a bit hectic in keeping people there, but Christy maintained her professionalism, kept to the timeline and shot list, and continued to see through what we had envisioned. Overall, the photos turned out beautifully and they were so fun to go through, share with family and friends, and captured everything the day meant to us. I highly recommend working with Christy and am so thankful to her.

    Highly recommend Christy!

    We booked Christy for our wedding photography - wedding was 9/15/18. Christy was AMAZING to work with from beginning to end! She was super easy to communicate with and it was effortless to set up a time to meet with her in person at a local coffee shop. She took the time to really understand what we were looking for in a photographer. We ended up doing our engagement photos in San Diego, but Christy was very flexible and we were able to use the credit with her for a 2nd shooter on the day of the wedding. I forget her name, but the 2nd shooter was also super friendly, fun and a great person to have around on our wedding day. On the day-of, Christy was on-time, super bubbly and friendly, but also blended in so we didn't always feel like we were being photographed. We got our photos back a few weeks ago and we LOVE them! She captured so many great moments, and her eye for photography is amazing. We've gotten so many compliments. We would absolutely recommend Christy to anyone, and would use her again for family photos in the future if she was available! We can't recommend Christy enough!!!! Thank you Christy!

    best photographer!

    I could not have picked a better photographer for our elopement in Yosemite! Christy was so down to earth and helpful leading up to our destination elopement. Not only did she help us plan, but she took care of the photography permit, and knew of all of the best locations to take us for epic photos! It was like bringing along a friend as a third wheel to our wedding, and we definitely became life-long friends! She had us playing around and having fun, which made for the best photos I've ever taken with my husband. We felt incredibly nervous being in front of the camera at first, but she made us feel so comfortable within the first few minutes. When we got our photos back, we could not believe how INCREDIBLE they turned out! I will treasure them forever, and I can't recommend Christy enough!
