“Christine is amazing! Booking her was the best decision we made for our wedding. From the beginning, Christine was extremely helpful, professional and responsive. Christine took photos for us during our Friday night Welcome Event and all day on Saturday for the wedding (along with Nikole who Christine brought as the 2nd photographer).
Not only does she take beautiful photos but she is so kind and thoughtful. We received multiple compliments from family members and guests about Christine. She made it a priority to learn family members’ names, faces, and relationships.
My husband and I appreciate her for all prep work she did before the wedding. Especially building out a timeline that ensured we got all the photos we wanted.
We were so excited after the wedding to see that Christine sent us our “preview” photos so quickly and the folder contained way more photos than we were expecting.
Book her! You won’t regret it!”

“Our only regret is not knowing about Christine earlier!
When our original photographer was not available for our rescheduled wedding, our planner gave us a few options of photographers that fit our style. We were looking for fine art photography, a photographer that uses a mix of digital and film cameras, and who’s style was classic. I wanted pictures that would not be outdated in 10 years. I also spent a lot of time planning the details of our wedding, and I wanted to make sure the photographer valued capturing those details.
Christine was all of this and more. From our very first zoom meeting (could not meet in person because of COVID) her amazing personality was apparent, and the quality of her portfolio was outstanding. As we had already done an engagement shoot, Christine worked with us and was able to shoot our rehearsal dinner. It was so nice to meet her the day before our wedding and the rehearsal photos are amazing!
Prior to the wedding Christine sent a very in-depth questionnaire about our wedding plans, vendors, bridal attire and accessories, wedding party and family members. This was great to fill out because it highlighted her attention to detail and also made myself and my (now) husband think through some parts of the wedding we hadn’t nailed down yet.
On the day of the wedding Christine was perfect. It was more like having a friend in the room as opposed to a photographer. She was organized, she directed us when we needed directing, and she grabbed the BEST candids. We relied on her expertise when it came to picking places to shoot our wedding party pictures and she nailed it. Honestly the photos are gorgeous and I love them ALL.
We received our photos exactly 7 weeks after the wedding, but she gave us such great sneak peeks right after the wedding and that was great for social media posting and just wanting to see how the pictures would turn out.
I cannot recommend Christine enough.”

“Christine was hands down one of the BEST parts of our wedding planning experience! From our initial call, I could immediately tell I wanted to work with her. She was incredibly sweet and kind, thoughtful in her approach to photography and the wedding day timeline, and extremely professional. We had a few unforeseen challenges at the beginning of our wedding day and Christine managed to keep me calm, help keep my family/bridal party moving, and was able to get us right back on schedule! Most importantly, Christine beautifully captured so many special moments from our day and she even sent our finalized gallery ahead of schedule during her busiest season. Overall, she is organized beyond belief, providing minute-by-minute detailed timelines, INSANELY talented, and just a joy to work with. If you’re still looking for a photographer, look no further because Christine is the best of the best, and will take the same time and care with your wedding day as she did ours. Thank you, Christine! We will forever cherish our timeless wedding photos.”

“My husband and I are so thankful Christine was able to accommodate our wedding into her schedule for 2021! Christine has previously photographed weddings and family photos of friends and I have always been in awe of her work! She is such a kind and genuine spirit who gets to know her clients more closely in order to capture the small, meaningful natural moments of your time together.
My husband and I were wanting to pull off a small, intimate wedding with only 5-6 months to plan and during a pandemic. When Christine offered availability for the date we were hoping for (after she had previously closed her schedule for the season), we felt it was meant to be and felt so fortunate! It seriously gave us more confidence in our ability to plan a dream wedding in such a short amount of time knowing that Christine was on our team! She brings with her a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and experience that really helped us set the foundation of organizing our wedding day in addition to providing us the beautiful photography that we will cherish forever as memories in our home.
Christine is absolutely the best – so kind, thoughtful, generous with her time, detail oriented, organized, and talented. My family continues to rave about Christine – from her beautiful fine art photography to the time, attention to detail, and helpful guidance she provided us throughout the day! I highly recommend Christine, dabblemethis, and plan to continue to reach out to her to capture special family moments in the future!”

“Not only is Christine an AMAZING photographer, she is an absolute gem to work with. Christine is kind and warm, and exactly the kind of person you want with you on your wedding day.
We had both our engagement and wedding photos done by Christine. My husband was apprehensive of engagement photos at first, but Christine made us both feel so comfortable the entire time. In fact, he even became excited to take wedding photos. Our wedding was on NYE, and prior to the big day Christine worked with me to create a timeline and photo list to make sure we got all of the photos we wanted. She even scouted the venue and surrounding area to find the perfect spots. Her efficiency, professionalism, and ability to capture the most beautiful candid moments are unparalleled.
Now, her photos are absolutely beautiful. They are bright, airy and timeless. Exactly what we were looking for. Hire Christine for your special day, family portraits, or any of your photography needs. You will NOT be disappointed. I know I have found a photographer for all of life’s special events in Christine.
Christine deserves 100 stars. Thank you Christine for making all of our wedding photo dreams come true!“

“Without a doubt, Christine was our very favorite vendor to work with for our wedding day! We are so happy to have had her as our wedding photographer, and will absolutely be recommending her to all of our newly engaged friends and family members!
From the very beginning of our wedding planning process, Christine was SO kind, responsive, flexible, and patient. She spent time getting to know us as a couple, the vision for our wedding day, and what our schedule for the day would look like. She played a huge role in making sure the day ran smoothly and that we had time for all of the photos we wanted. I’m confident in saying that we (myself, my husband, our families, and wedding party) felt calm and comfortable all day because of Christine! Her experience in this industry truly speaks for itself.
Most importantly, Christine effortlessly and perfectly captured so many special moments throughout our day – we could not be more grateful! She is an incredibly talented photographer and so much fun to work with. We are completely blown away by the photos that we’ve received – we cannot stop looking through them, and so many people have been wanting to know who our photographer was. Obviously, we are recommending her to everyone without hesitation Thank you, Christine, for providing us with the most beautiful wedding photos that we will always cherish!”

“Christine is the definition of professional. When we were looking at photographers for our wedding, it wasn’t only her style of photography that drew us to her, it was her professionalism, presentation, and personality. Her website and portfolio are incredible. It was always easy to get in contact with her and she was willing to answer any questions we had at any time. She provided a wedding timeline that was beyond detailed which helped ease any anxiety about the events of our wedding day. Her turnaround time with beautiful edits was extremely reasonable. Our photos are priceless.
Our wedding was on a hot, sunny day in July, just outside of Chicago, but she captured the light/airy feel we wanted. I remember waiting to enter our reception when someone started telling me about a small problem. Christine looked at me, smiled, and said, “Don’t worry, I’ve got it.” Again, she was such a professional and understood how to make the day as effortless as possible. Working with Christine, you won’t be disappointed.”
