​​ What am I all about?

I'm all about the authentic, spontaneous, wild, romantic, and carefree moments you share with the love of your life. I'm all for embracing the wind in your hair, having impromptu dance-offs, singing at the top of your lungs on the road, taking on adventure, and the messy, beautiful, unplanned moments.  
   My favorite thing to photograph is the deep connections between people - the happy tears, the long hugs, the laughs that make your belly hurt, the little things you love about each other. I want to bring out the playful, fun-loving, mad-for-eachother looks in your eyes in photos. I want your time in front of the camera to be a fun experience, instead of awkward poses. We can leave those behind. I want to learn about what makes you, YOU and create something big together. I love that every couple's journey is unique. I'm moved by the histories that bring people together and I believe their story deserves to be told. To tell that story, I want to capture even the smallest moments that happen in-between the main events. Part of the reason I love weddings is because there are so many of those. There are tiny gestures and giddy smiles to one another, quick loving glances and small tears throughout the day that should also be remembered. Witnessing all of the genuine, heartfelt emotions at weddings keeps me feeling fulfilled. It's proof that love is strong in this world and it fuels my inspiration. 

Let's tell your story.
   HI! I'm Christine! 

A lot of my friends call me by my last name, Flower. I have been wielding a camera for over a decade now and started shooting weddings since before my college days. I started shooting on film when I was a young'un at 15 and I seriously miss the darkroom. I fell in love with photography because it blew my mind that you can take a moment clear out of time and freeze it on a piece of paper with just light and a box. Went to school for a totally different BA (psych and bio, holla!), but couldn't put down the camera, so now I'm here! I just can't get enough of taking pictures of people in love.
