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.

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!

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!

Christie is the sweetest and oh so talented! She was super professional from start to finish, and she took the time to answer every single one of my questions over the phone before we even booked her.

Before the big day, we had a video chat with Christie so she could get to know us. I don't think many photographers put in the amount of time and effort that Christie does!

On the day of, I was pretty nervous but I was quickly right at home with Christie. She is so personable and comforting. I feel absolutely safe with her, and someone that doesn't like being in front of the camera too much, feeling comfortable with a photographer is priceless.

We're so grateful for these beautiful photos! It was such a beautiful day, but the pictures look even more magical thanks to Christie getting the best angles and lighting. I really wanted that golden hour light and she captured it beautifully!

10/10 recommend Christie for elopements. Also, she's ordained, so booking with her saves you money on hiring an officiant! Will be hiring her again in the future for sure :)

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 is a absolute dream. My fiancé and I had our engagement shoot with her and she helped us achieve our vision greater than we could’ve imagined. She got our permit to Joshua Tree National Park within days, was knowledgeable with the area and the entire process of obtaining the permit we literally didn’t have to do a thing. I was having a hectic morning and she met us at 5AM with a full smile and extra coffee. This woman is amazing I can’t say it enough and you need to meet her and let her do her photo magic. I hope to work with her in the future I just can’t get enough of our photos.

Christie was so much fun to work with. She helped my partner (who doesn’t like attention) relax and have fun. By the time we left he said he was so happy to have done the shoot. Definitely a great person to work with!

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!
