I believe that:

Tradition is beautiful.

Laughter is essential.

Tears, honesty, and dance moves should never be held back.

Allow me to introduce myself.

I am a proud wife, a smitten mother, a laugher, an Ohioan, a 7w6 (high fives if you know what that means!), a bad liar, and am on a lifelong quest to become the healthiest version of myself.

Marriage is grand and challenging and more beautiful than I could've known. I wear the name “Mother” with profound pride and joy. I am a huge fan of the commitment, fidelity, and vulnerability it requires to promise your life and heart to another person. If it sounds like we may be kindred spirits, reach out to me here and tell me your story. I’d love to witness it.

Why Christina Marie?

I love meeting people, making them feel comfortable, and telling their stories through compelling images. I love photographing people with real, human emotions. I enjoy both dignifying life's seemingly mundane moments and capturing the effervescence of life's most happy ones. 

I have been photographing weddings professionally for over seven years, and the thing I love most about them is how completely human every single wedding is. A wedding day follows a typical pattern, but once you get inside that pattern, it's different and beautiful every time. I want to tell your story as your story, complete with all the nerves, the butterflies, the anxiety, the tenderness, the tears, and the unabashed joy.

What else?

Although I specialize as a wedding and engagement photographer, I have experience in a broad variety of styles--here's a handful:

  • Events (corporate shindigs, birthday bashes, you name it!)

  • Lifestyle (at-home) sessions

  • Birth and Newborn photography

  • Product/commercial photography

  • Travel photography

Anything else you want me to shoot? The answer is probably yes. I'm up for an adventure, and my specialty lies in capturing creative photos with a very human feel.

 Who inspires me?

Here are a few artists I respect and admire:
