Meet Christa

My Mission and Business:

I’m a Twin Cities wedding photographer who enjoys celebrating every moment of this awesome beautiful journey we call life.

I take pride in serving you.   I want your experience working with me to be personalized, stress free and full of joy.  I put my whole heart into being your photographer.

People who work with me describe their photography as candid, vibrant, documentary style, and fun. I like a mix of natural posing and spontaneous moments when I shoot.

I’m a full time business owner.  The journey to owning my business started way back in 2001, when I took a job shooting portraits and developing film at a commercial family portrait studio.  After that I did a lot of shooting on the side of my day job in retail management.  I shot portraits, landscape, everything I could capture! I went back to college for visual communications, switched to digital gear, spent tons of time working for other photographers, and finally opened my own business.  Here I am today, having spent over a decade of learning, working and creating photography for others.

I love helping others, so if you have questions on your wedding or anything else photography head on over to my Contact page and send me an email.

More About Me:

I am a flexible, chill person.   I like to roll with whatever is happening, both in life and when doing photography.

I believe that beauty comes in the form of our souls, our personalities, our quirks, and our love for others.

Family is everything to me.  Family is our relatives.  Family is more.  Family is also our neighbors, our close friends, the people that feel like home.

What do I do when I’m not making pictures?   I love to learn and read.  I savor a good road trip.  I enjoy a good movie.  I like to walk the Minnesota River Valley just a few blocks away from my home.  I practice yoga.  I meditate. I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen.  I help my daughter with school work.  I spend time with my husband of 17 years who is my biggest supporter, a postal carrier and musician.
