MY STORY

ABOUT me

meet christine

Long ago, I was a ballerina, sang in choirs and played the piano and flute.
I love to drink my coffee slowly and don’t mind if it goes cold.
I believe in working hard and playing hard, too.

Photography is the way I stop time to show you how beautiful your life is.

I’m a  born and raised Torontonian who has been capturing feelings on film since I received a hand-me-down camera in the fourth grade. I graduated from obsessively snapping pictures of my friends to getting my diploma in Creative Photography at Humber College to being named one of the 30 Most Inspiring Photographers for 2015 by Weddingbells. My work has also been featured on blogs 100 Layer Cake, Ruffled, Refinery29 and The Wedding Co. In those rare moments I’m not working, I’m travelling, feasting, or playing with my husband and two daughters in Toronto’s west end.

MY STORY

MY STORY

It's been 12 years since I graduated from college. At graduation, I had no plans of ever becoming a wedding photographer because in 2004, wedding photography lacked creativity, emotion and was otherwise boring (or so I thought). Truthfully, when I received my diploma, I had no direction and no plans. Fortunately, an incredible wedding studio took a chance on me and showed me how beautiful, emotional and creative wedding photography could be. Once I could see the magic, I knew I had to be a part of it.

MY APPROACH

It’s a magical thing to be granted entry into a couple’s inner circle, to witness their most intimate moments, on the most memorable day of their lives. It’s my job to make couples relaxed enough to be their most honest selves in front of me—and it’s my privilege to use this access to capture not just pretty pictures, but the sincere emotions of two people on a very big day. From pre-aisle nerves to “We did it!” grins, meaningful toasts to dance-floor mayhem—I get a front-row seat, and I love using it to deliver the photos that will have you smiling, laughing, and crying all over again. This intimate approach, combined with my documentary style, gives you the kind of photos your best friend might take at your wedding (if your best friend really knew how to work angles, lighting, and Photoshop!)
