Lifestyle sessions are meant to capture families, seniors, and couples in their element. Whether hiking outdoors, baking cookies and playing games in the comfort of their home, or taking a day trip to a favorite coffee shop, I'll be there to capture grandma's new favorite photo, a new canvas for the wall, or the social media post of the year. Sessions range from half an hour to two hours, and are carefully curated to fit the desires of the client.
Years ago I had a photographer capture my man and I enjoying some time together in the midst of our daily routine. When I looked at the photos, I couldn't believe the intimacy and emotion that was captured that I had honestly looked right past, even as I was experiencing it. Sometimes it's so easy to forget to see the magic in the patterns of day-to-day living, but it's so important to cherish and recognize these moments. My "Date Night Adventure" sessions are to help you do just that. You'll fill out a survey describing a bit about who you are and what you like to do, and I'll plan a massively exciting date. You'll get to enjoy a spontaneous day/night out (food and an activity) while I discreetly capture your relationship in photos that you will treasure forever.
I hear you're getting married?! Well that's pretty cool because I just so happen to LOVE capturing love. In fact, I can't think of a more substantial honor than celebrating with you fine folks and your closest friends and family. Booking with CHP comes with the promise of certain adventure and a peace of mind; my goal is to capture your day from the inside out, helping to foster and document the genuine interactions that make your love unique. My style has been described as earthy, authentic, intimate, and cinematic, so if those are some words that come to mind when you're picturing your dream wedding, certainly get in touch. Each of my collections come with a complimentary engagement session, a second shooter, and a date to Chipotle (on me, but I'm third wheeling it!). Oh, and one more thing- I have a special place in my heart for educators and first responders, so definitely mention if you fit in those
Christie is not only an extremely kindhearted, genuine, and passionate person, she is an exceptional photographer with great talent, professionalism, and poise. Asking Christie to photograph our wedding this summer proved to be a fantastic decision, as she exhibited such patience and care while shooting our wedding. Despite our wedding day stress, she always kept her cool and knew exactly what she was doing at every moment, making us feel comfortable and confident. She also shot our engagement photos, and my husband and I felt so at ease with her as she talked with us, showed an interest in us, and took very flattering photos of us. During the wedding everyone, various members of my wedding party and guests told me how impressed they were by our photographer, and the photos from the day speak for themselves.
Christie is incredible to work with. From the first time I spoke with her, I knew she had to be my photographer! She listened to my vision (and all my other ramblings), and never tried to steer us in a direction that wasn't true to us. My husband hates having his picture taken, and she did an unbelievable job making our photo session fun and natural, encouraging us to be as silly or serious as we wanted. I never wanted overly staged photos, and Christie is SO good at capturing the real, authentic moments. When I looked at my pictures, I genuinely felt like I was reliving the day. I could literally feel the joy. I think one of Christie's greatest skills, besides being be best photographer, is being able to gain a deeper understanding of who a couple is in an impressively short amount of time. She felt like a friend at our wedding, and it showed it in our pictures.
Wow. If you want the BEST experience for your wedding, hire Christie! From the moment she meets you, you know that she cares so deeply about humanity and, more than that, about you and your wishes for your photos. She is so professional in terms of staying within time frames and being thorough, yet efficient, while also making everything about your day personal and laid back. She has an incredible artistic eye, and will give you exceedingly more of herself than she charges for. She is one in a million, personally and professionally, and will make you and every part of your wedding look phenomenal. I couldn't recommend her any more highly! We were so thankful to have her photograph our wedding day!
I contacted Christie for some pictures to use for my music projects and I am so happy with her work and vision! Not only is she a sweet and friendly person, but she is incredibly talented! I love the pictures she took and I love how comfortable she made me feel. I really don't care to have my picture taken, but I am so pleased with my shoot with Christie. She is very professional without making the shoot feel high pressure - but the results are wonderful. I LOVE the colors and lighting she captures... it is just beautiful. I would HIGHLY recommend Christie for any of your photography needs.
Christie and her second shooter, Kelsey, did an absolutely fantastic job as our wedding photographers! The pictures they took were gorgeous, and they were both an absolute pleasure to work with. Before we began, Christie made sure to ask me how I wanted to look in my pictures, the shots I really wanted, and what I wanted the schedule for the day to look like. She kept me calm and laughing the whole time, and her primary concern was to give us the best wedding day possible. It showed in the pictures! They are so natural, and she managed to capture the love that everyone felt on that special day. Pricing is very fair, picture turn-around time was excellent, and she is such a kind person. I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out, and I'm so glad we got to work with her and Kelsey!

I wish I could give Christie a hundred star review and not just five. Christie will bring such light into your life from the first time you talk with her, to the first time you meet her, to the big day where there is nothing but joy, love, and excitement pouring out of her, to weeks after your wedding day when she is working on your gallery and is just as excited to relive the day all over again as she is editing photos. This is a woman who truly loves her job.
From the moment she and I chatted about being our photographer and we made it official with a signed contract, it was like God was looking out for me. From the beginning I kept telling Christie that she was the most important person to me on my wedding day, and boy did she live up to my expectations; she actually exceeded them! Since the day she agreed to photograph the wedding she had been with me every step of the way, making sure we had everything perfect for the wedding.
We had such a blast that day with surprise first looks and blue grass jam sessions up in a field, to tandem bike riding and late night sparklers...the best part being that it didn't feel like we had to work hard at posing for the multitude of photos. It felt completely natural. Christie had no problem getting into weird positions like straddling me to get over head shots or lying on the ground between me to get shots of us looking down at her! I truly can't pick a favorite photo because I love all of them; the romantic ones, the funny ones, the candid ones and the ones we planned. They are all stunning and bring out exactly who Todd and I are together! We were a match made in heaven, and I mean Christie and I (haha)! She is such a beautiful soul and I'm so happy that I not only had a perfect photographer, but I feel like I've made a friend!
