THE GIRL BEHIND THE CAMERA - Capturing moments of love & all the feels of life.
Hey I am Crista, a Wedding & Lifestyle Photographer born & raised in the cutest little town of Redlands & still based in Southern California who is just obsessed with taking your photos! I’ve had a camera in my hand for over 10 years and married the love of my life just over a year ago :) I adore the simple things in life…cuddling with my HUSBAND Sheldon & our two dogs in bed each morning, making lattes, taking care of our new home together, watching Gilmore Girls, drives in the canyon listening to Post Malone & watching the sunset in beautiful locations. I graduated college from CSUSB with my bachelors in Psychology and worked in the field counseling, then I realized I can also help people gain confidence through my greatest passion, photography. I am happiest with a camera in my hand, so my "job" has never felt like a job. It has been my passion for as long as I can remember, and I feel so blessed everyday that I get to call this my career.
You can expect at a session with me that you not only get great pictures, you get a memorable warm experience! I love showing up for you with positive energy & guidance I continue to combine my passion for photography & love for people in my work everyday. I appreciate deep emotions & the need to feel a human connection. This would describe my unconventional way of photographing you! I love to feed off energy & create moments rather than poses. I live for connecting with people! I don’t see myself as a vendor, I see myself as your friend & biggest hype gal you will ever have! We create more magic off vibing & getting to know one another…instead of telling you to stand here & smile there. I feel a true connection with you behind my camera & express my creativity with you as my muse. Lets create an amazing experience and make you feel as beautiful as art!
