A Midwest fine art wedding photographer serving couples more passionate about their marriage than their wedding.

I’m a student of photography, the world, and The Word. Natural light makes my heart sing, breakfast dates are my jam (get it?), and my former camp crush is now my new husband (!). I call the Midwest home, but I’ve left my heart all over the world and would love to travel for the rest of my days. If I’m not on an airplane, you can find me at an outdoor cafe, on the shores of Lake Michigan, or picking wildflowers on the side of the road.





i'm christa

we were together. i forget the rest.

my lifetime

Sure it hasn't all been perfect, but I've been blessed to live an incredibly full life thus far. In my own experience, I feel like I know a person best when I watch their eyes light up as they discuss a passion of theirs or recount a favorite memory. So here goes: some of all time favorite moments.
