Everything you need to know!
Approach and style
I work hard to cater my photography to reflect YOU. I photograph in a variety of styles and offer a blend of candid photojournalism with timeless-but-funky portraits.
As a documentary storyteller, my goal is to capture the love you have for each other and and those around you. During portraits I always provide easy-to-follow directions so you and your guests will look and feel amazing! You're going to LOVE your wedding photos!
I photograph weddings in Victoria, BC on beautiful Vancouver Island. While I'm staying closer to home these days, I used to live part-time in Costa Rica and I traveled the world photographing destination weddings. If you're looking for inspiration for your own big day check out the blog.
After the last few years we've all learned the value of flexibility. That's why I make it easy for you to postpone or cancel if something happens and you need to change your plans.
Every wedding is unique and yours will be, too! That's why I create custom collections for every couple based on the kind of celebration you're having.
Collection pricing for local Victoria BC weddings begin at $4,950 for six hours, which is the perfect amount of time for photographing your your preparations through to your first dances and cake cutting. Elopements begin at $1,450 for 1.5 hours, which is the perfect amount of time for your ceremony + portraits.
How many wedding photos can you expect?
Rather than setting a limit of, say, 300 images in six hours... I leave no stone un-turned in ensuring your full wedding day story is captured. The minimum amount you can expect is a photo a minute, but 99.9% of the time it's considerably more.
My photo editor and I only remove photos if they're unflattering, if someone blinked, or if we've experimented and something didn't turn out. And if I've photographed in a flurry, then you'll receive the best of a sequence so you don't have a million photos that only change by a fraction of a second. The bottom line: We aren't going to remove a photo of your aunt just because we don't deem it "artistic enough."
I know how excited you'll be to see your images and I want to make sure you have professional images to enjoy as soon as possible. That's why you'll receive a sneak peek slideshow with highlights featuring about 40-70 images within a week of the wedding.
Then, when your collection is ready in about five to eight weeks, we’ll provide you with a personalized online gallery where you can download your images and share with your guests. Your loved ones can also help themselves to their own images, saving you the time and effort of making copies for others.
Let's make it official!
Christina and Derek were a dream to work with on our wedding day. Beyond their ridiculous talent and skill in capturing candid moments, they are kind, FUN, and have a gentle way to calm and lead you through the day. Christina has a way of picking up the slightest cues and adjusting quickly to make everyone feel comfortable. We hit the jackpot with these two. (and our guests were all blown away too)! - 8/21/2022
Christina did a wonderful job for our newborn lifestyle photos! We were looking for someone to capture our new baby in our home in a candid and natural fashion. Christina made us feel so comfortable, guiding us but capturing us in a natural way! We are blown away by her talent and will definitely be hiring her for family photos in the future 😊 - 7/27/2022
Christina is amazing. Her positive energy will bring out genuine smiles in you and your family as she finds creative and beautiful ways to capture you, just being yourselves. I love the photos Christina took of our family. She was professional and the turnaround time was super speedy. I will certainly book with her again and would recommend her to anyone looking for a family photographer. - 12/03/2021
Unreal! I could not be happier with my family's decision to ask Christina to take our family portraits. Not only is she a friendly and warm individual, but she is clear and prompt in her communications and an absolute professional. Christina made us feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, and was amazing working with our tiny children (1 and 3 years old... not the most obliging subjects!). The resulting photographs are gorgeous... they far exceeded my expectations in how they captured real moments of joy and intimacy (er, they had me in tears at work!). I absolutely hope to work with Christina again and recommend her in the highest terms possible. - 10/28/2021
Christina captured our moments so beautifully and the slide show made us cry and smile at the same time! Since we were having a small wedding and kept everything so simple, we only booked for 3hrs of her time. She was super quick and amazing at capturing details in such a short time! To be honest I was a little nervous about the photos before I received them because some of us, including myself, aren't photogenic and always put on awkward smiles when we stare at cameras but as soon as she sent us the sneak peek photos after just one week of our wedding my worry was instantly gone. We were oohing-and-aawing (lol) at the photos and some of my family and friends photos turned out like magazine-grade photos! I think she is more than a pro (she was so personable and understanding + flexible) and we all highly recommend her. I really feel proud to have an eye to see her fantastic photography skills through her portfolios in her website and reached out to her for my wedding. - 9/17/2021
Christina photographed our wedding many years ago and we just had our family portraits taken again with her. She is fantastic at what she does. It's not easy getting such gorgeous looking pictures that is so natural, especially with kids smiling, yet she manages to capture those quick moments and in such a perfect way. Thank you so much Christina! - 9/01/2021
Christina is a very talented and personable photographer. She made the whole experience so fun and made us feel at ease. We are in love with our wedding pictures and highly recommend Christina to everyone! You will not be disappointed. We will definitely use Christina’s services in the future for family photos. Thank you for capturing the essence of who we are and our special day! - 8/22/2021
