Christi was absolutely wonderful to work with! If I had to plan a wedding a million more times - I would pick her every time. I didn't have a wedding planner, so Christi went above and beyond to guide me through the day-of process and helped me build a timeline to go off of. She... Read More did a really good job getting the cliche shots that the parents love without being cheesy (my fear). But she also put her own personal touch on the photos, while at the same time making sure that our personalities (and our geology background - FYI rocks and minerals make amazing pictures with rings and invitations) shine through. She also made sure to capture those really special candid moments. Brian and I aren't the best models, but Christi made us feel super comfortable and helped us through the not-super-posed poses. Christi just has an amazing eye for wedding photography, and will get some super unique pictures that you didn't even know you wanted! We are over-the-moon happy with our pictures and we HIGHLY recommend her - Thanks Christi!

I can't say enough great things about Christi and her work. She photographed our wedding as well as engagement and boudoir sessions. She was so easy to work with and was quick to respond to any questions I had. Christi and her husband drove out to our grandparents' house for...

I will cherish my photos forever and would recommend her a million times over!

I could go on and on about how much we loved Christi. I found her website and emailed her immediately to meet in person. After only a minute of meeting with her, I knew she was THE ONE! She was sweet, genuine, and had incredible ideas. I felt confident she would capture my day... Read More exactly how I had envisioned. I asked her to move our scheduled engagement pictures up by several weeks so I could use one of the pictures in our Save the Date, and she made it work AND got our photos back to us in record time.

I loved having her be apart of our wedding day family. And, our pictures. They are above and beyond what I was expecting. She really did an incredible job. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer and can't wait for Christi to continue to capture our life's moments.

Christi Chambers

Photography is in my blood, I guess. I'm one of several professional image-creators in my family, & for the first half of my life, I insisted that I would never become a photographer. Then one day in college, I picked up a camera and took a picture of a ladybug. Now, with 11 years of professionally documenting weddings under my belt, I'm married myself, and we have the craziest, sweetest two-year-old daughter you could ask for. In my spare time, you'll find me having deep conversations with my daughter about why airplanes don't flap their wings or enjoying a killer glass of wine with the hubs.
