When I'm not photographing a wedding or an engagement session, you can find me snuggling with my cat or at my computer with coffee in hand diving into editing. I am mostly known for the passion and heart I put into everything I do, especially with my clients. I absolutely love getting to know you throughout the year; helping you wedding visions come to life.

I'm an extroverted introvert and love spending my weekends and evenings working or binging the latest Netflix show.  But on your wedding day you bet I will be a social butterfly.

I love serving the world by capturing genuine love, and candid moments between the people on the other side of my lens. I will get those laughs out of you even if I have to make a fool of myself, when I say authentic, I mean it!

My photography journey started 6 years ago with my mom’s old Canon camera. Home from college for the summer I noticed it sitting untouched and decided to put it to use. I quickly fell in love with creating and seeing things through the lens. Something that started as simply a creative outlet for me quickly became something much more.  I love capturing the candid moments that truly make some of the best memories for years to come.
 
I graduated with a degree in Marketing and Management from Augustana while also playing volleyball. I currently work for Rock Valley Physical Therapy as their Marketing Coordinator and I have become obsessed with creating, problem solving, and finding ways to connect with target clients through marketing. Sharing the “why” in what companies and people do is truly my second passion next to photography. 

When I am not working my full-time job, photographing you, or coaching volleyball, find me sitting on my front porch swing drinking coffee and reading a good motivational book. I am married to my amazing husband Kyle and we have 2 crazy Australian Shepherds, Rory and Banks.

My experience with photography began in high school when taking over a head role on the yearbook team. I recently upgraded my Canon and behind my lens is my new favorite place to be! Photography has given me the opportunity to express my creative side and truly lights my fire. Capturing little moments and big milestones to keep memories alive is such a rewarding task. 

I graduated from the University of Dubuque in 2019 with a degree in Human Resource Management. I am a total extrovert and love being around people! I am just a few short months away from marrying my soon to be husband and have loved all of the wedding planning prep. I am so close to seeing all the final details come together and I can’t wait for the day I have been envisioning for so long.

I am most known for my bubbly personality and attention to detail. I have a knack for all things organization and planning. You can frequently find me making a to-do list, planning a trip, or color coordinating my closet (90% black color palette if I’m being honest) When I’m not capturing your love, you can find me baking, shopping, or working out!

She makes a point of meeting you in person/via Skype to get to know you as a couple and get a feel for your vision on your wedding day. She plans your day-of timeline which is a huge stress reliever. She has an amazing wedding guide that helps you pick vendors, tips on planning your big day, and great photos that show off her photography style.  On top of all that, she becomes an amazing friend.

Christina is more than a photographer!
