Soft, Real, & Nostalgic

Want beautiful photos without turning your big day into a photoshoot? Let's chat :)

Hey, friend!

First thing you should know: I'm a wedding & elopement photographer based in Oklahoma, traveling anywhere.I specialize in true-to-life, timeless images that help you remember how it felt. My goal is to help you and your partner relax and enjoy yourselves, so you can focus on celebrating your love, instead of thinking ‘What should I do with my hands?’To ensure I can dedicate the time and attention you deserve, I only work with 30 couples per year. This allows me to capture your unique love story while ensuring a personalized experience.If you’re looking for real, emotion-filled photos you can obsess over for years to come…

We have done a lot of couples photoshoots and have a high standard and working with Christa not only met those expectations but also went above and beyond! From the beginning stages of communicating and logistics through to receiving the final images - everything was smooth, professional, and enjoyable. We had such a blast working with Christa and she really captured the essence of our love and relationship. Her editing is unmatched and the pictures are showstoppers. If you have the chance to work with her - BOOK ASAP! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼-Allie & Joe

Does this sound like you?

Are you into soft photos that help you remember how it felt? Do you value timeless essentials AND artistic expression? Do you want photos you can obsess over without making your whole wedding day about getting the “right” photos? Keep reading :)My job is to bring peace to your wedding day. To allow you and your partner to live fully in the moment and to capture those moments: the big ones & the small. To tell your unique story, I take into account everything we talked about prior to your wedding day so you receive a gallery that feels like YOU.My approach lies at the intersection of two simple ideas:1) Your love story doesn’t need to be staged. It’s beautiful as is.This means I'll capture your wedding day as it naturally unfolds, without forced poses or unnatural situations. I want your photos to reflect the real you and your partner, and the real love you share.2) You deserve to look & feel your best.I once had my photos taken only to realize later that I was hunched over for 80% of the shots. Yeah, not fun… I want you to look back at your wedding photos and feel absolutely gorgeous & 100% you.Sound about right?

Example Wedding Gallery

Best photographer around!! Had so much fun shooting with her and the pictures turned out great! I’d give her 6 stars if I could!
-Allie & Zack

Ben and I had so much fun during our shoot in Nashville with Christa! She was open to the photo ideas we had and problem-solved when our location was too crowded. Christa made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and was a joy to work with. Not to mention, we love the photos!!
-Mia & Ben

"Christa was so kind and made us feel comfortable the entire session! She knew exactly what she wanted out of each frame and asked us if we had any poses that we would like to do! We really enjoyed our time with her, book her for your photo needs!"
-Joslyn & Collin
