Documenting Your Wildest Adventures and Everything In Between

Hi, I’m Christie and I want to help make all your elopement dreams a reality. I believe that every couple deserves to have a wedding day that is representative of their love and personalities. So whether you want to get married on the edge of a cliff, at city hall, on the side of a mountain, or in a cabin tucked deep in the forest, I am here to make that happen for you and document every special moment.

Your love isn’t ordinary and your wedding shouldn’t be either.

Tradition isn’t for everyone and that is totally okay! Even more, your day should be a representation of you as a couple, not your parents or your great-aunt Sally. Let’s craft a day together that is unique to your love story and the things that make you happy. And don’t worry, if you aren’t the kind of person who hikes 10 miles for fun on a Saturday, I’ve gotcha! If an elopement in a library is more your thing or you just want to drive up to an epic view in nature, the options are limitless. From the planning process to capturing your entire elopement, this experience will be one you’ll never forget.

Timeless. Romantic. Warm. Emotive.

The moment you see each other for the first time in your wedding attire. The small glance you give one another as your best friend makes a toast at your intimate brunch. Your hands held tightly as you walk through the ancient redwood groves.

Storytelling is a huge focus on the day of your elopement. Sure, we get a good mix of those hero shots too…you know the ones. But making sure that the raw, intimate moments of your day are captured is just as important because they truly help tell a story that you’ll look back on for years to come. My style is warm and romantic with a hint of retro-film for a unique twist.

Specializing in elopements and intimate weddings, I am here for all the love! No matter what you look like or who you love, you deserve to have the elopement experience of a lifetime and I want to help you make that happen.

Let’s do this thing.

I don’t even know where to start, Christie was absolutely amazing!!! We eloped in the Redwood National Park on May 20th, 2022 and she made the whole day stress free and so fun! We started our day at our Airbnb where we had our first look, then we drove to the trail we picked out, hiked, exchanged vows, got pictures, drove to fern canyon, hiked some more, and ended our day at the beach where we had our first dance. Christie fabricated the most perfect timeline and OMG the pictures she captured, I could go on and on about!!! Months before we eloped she stayed in touch with us, video chatted, and got to know us. The amount of time she took to learn the little details we wanted to include meant a lot! She went as far as arriving to our location the day before we eloped and scouted out the whole trip, noting traffic delays and other things. I HIGHLY suggest her to everyone!!! So talented and so sweet!

I don't even know how to begin! I am beyond elated that we found Christie. My now husband and I eloped at city hall in Pasadena and we had Christie capture the day for us. From the beginning, she was so genuine and really wanted to take the time to get to know us as people and as a couple. By the time elopement day came around, we were so comfortable with her, and we honestly cannot believe how amazing every single photo turned out. They look straight out of a magazine. We haven't been able to stop staring at them since we got them! I can't recommend Christie enough. She was communicative, incredibly helpful with scouting the venue, got sneak peaks and our whole album to us quickly, and is just a really cool human being!

Christie is a rockstar! My husband was skeptical about an all day vow renewal but he was a changed man once we were done. We saw how much effort Christie put in to make every moment authentic and just perfect. She scouted locations prior and knew exactly the shots she wanted. She worked with us on poses to make sure we got the full experience and down to drive around to all the coolest; she does not skimp on any piece of the experience. She was an absolute dream with my daughter and managing a 7 year olds emotions when she is bored. I would absolutely recommend her services to anyone I know. Pictures like these have been on my bucket list and well worth every dollar. I will cherish these photos forever and ever and they are even more special to me because they have my daughter in it.

Christie was such a delight to work with. She made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable with our first professional photo experience. The shoot was fun, imaginative, and it helped my partner and I connect in a new way. I attribute that to Christie’s professionalism and her candor. On top of it being a wonderful experience on the day, the photos she took are an absolute dream. We get endless compliments on the pictures, and I have been HAPPY to refer her services. Thank you so much Christie!!

Where do I even begin?! Christie was our elopement photographer and we can't imagine anyone else to have captured our special day. She went above and beyond for us, as well as being helpful with choosing an elopement location even before we booked her. She is the most down to earth person and helped us through every obstacle we encountered. My wife and I have never had any professional pictures taken before so we were shy and didn't know what to do, but she guided us through it and made us feel very comfortable. Her work and style is done very beautifully and you can tell she takes her time with each and every photo captured. My wife and I have already booked her for another shoot and have 2 more in mind for next year. For as long as she's willing we will keep booking her for our future family shoots throughout the upcoming years. We love her and cant wait for her to capture our memories that will last a lifetime. :)

Christie was absolutely amazing to work with! She helped my fiancée plan a surprise proposal in the most beautiful location and was able to capture all the fun and positive emotions we were feeling so well. I have used the photos as screen savers, backdrops, and even for our save the date because they are just so breath taking. I’m so so happy my fiancée found her and that she was able to be our photographer. 10/10 would recommend for any photo shoot, but especially any in nature. She captures all the beauty around you as well as making you look good and that’s all you need in a photographer imo thanks so much Christie!

Rosalva G.

From beginning to end, Christie was amazing to work with! Before booking, we had a video call with her so that we could get to know her and ask any questions that we had. Right away, we could tell how passionate she was and knew she would be the perfect fit for our adventure elopement! After confirming all of the details, we unfortunately have to move our date but she had no issues with rescheduling. At each location that we were interested in taking photos, Christie was behind the scenes, checking to see if any permits were needed, etc. She made the entire experience completely stress free. We truly got to enjoy our day without having to worry about a thing. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience and would highly recommend Christie!
