The artist: Christine
I'm so glad you found me. I'm the worst at advertising and marketing and social media... so really, I'm really glad you found me!
I have photographed weddings since 2010. I started out as a second shooter and somehow ended up owning and operating a full time business photographing people like you. The business part is not my forte. It is not uncommon that I talk brides into booking less hours, but it is often the case that I lose track of time and stay longer than planned. I'm terrible with names but I get along with every body. I'm most often praised for how I handle large group portraits, stay relatively incognito and am seemingly everywhere at once.
My goal, as your wedding photographer, is to represent you and your event in it's truest form. I hope to interfere as little as possible, however I love taking portions of the day to stretch my creative muscles. I love when we can take short portrait sessions throughout the day, and capture the unexpected moments outside of a timeline. And I agree with your parents, the traditional portraits are important, too.
I encourage an engagement session, so you can get acquainted with my workflow, and you also get portraits in everyday attire in a location of your choice. But if you're out of town, and we can't make a consultation happen, I am praised for making couples comfortable even without having met them prior to the wedding.
From the moment you book my services, I will be there to answer questions about timelines, lighting, suggested vendors and ways to make the planning a little easier. I work with you up until the day of, making sure we have a plan for the best images and most fluid day. I can also stand back and let the timelines go to the wayside and embrace the unpredictable and spontaneous. Honestly, that's when the magic happens.
I plan to deliver images between 4-6 weeks, with a blog to showcase our favorites and an online gallery to share with friends and family. If you opt for the USB add-on, I'll treat you to some prints or trinkets in a lovely little keepsake box. I can't wait to work with you.
