of the most memorable day in our lives. She is unbelievably kind, flexible and accommodating and was exactly what we were looking for in a wedding photographer. Christina did such an amazing job, and was such an integral part of our day that we can honestly say she felt like a member of our family that day. Her pictures perfectly capture the beauty of every scene from the church, to the cocktail hour, and reception. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for the pinnacle of photography from a truly gifted artist.
style were apparent. We were immediately impressed by her professionalism and delighted by her warm smile and humor, which put two people who are otherwise rather awkward in front of the camera at ease. Christina is an artist, capturing very candid, genuine, sweet and tender moments at great angles. Not only does Christina expertly capture moments to remember, she does so very discreetly. In fact, we were so amazed by how many photos she and her team took throughout the day without being noticed. We have so many priceless candid, natural shots of the wedding as a result, and we couldn't be happier with everything she has done for us.
She was the first vendor I booked (I even tried to book her before we decided on the venue) because I was so impressed by her work and style. She is so down to earth, fun, and sweet. She made us feel completely at ease, made us laugh, and captured us in the most perfect way. I couldn't imagine being happier with any photos than the ones from our engagement session, but of course Christina proved me wrong at our wedding! The day of the wedding she brought out the best in everyone. All of our wedding guests absolutely loved Christina and even months later people keep telling us how our photos were the most beautiful ones they have ever seen.
Most brides & grooms will agree that the photographer is an important wedding vendor worth splurging on. You want to find someone with skills you trust to preserve your wedding day memories. You also hope that you enjoy being around them since you will be spending a lot of time with them that day. Christina is that but better. We are like style soul mates, plus she's immensely knowledgeable, talented, creative, FUN, hard-working, perceptive, BRILLIANT, witty, uplifting, warmhearted, passionate about her work and so much more than just a photographer. Her ability to capture the small meaningful moments of life is exhilarating, and her photos have the tendency to bring out the enchanting mythical beauty of any scene.
People always ask me, "WHY FILM? Why choose to shoot something that is old when digital cameras today have advanced so much?" There is only one answer I ever have for them... FILM HAS SOUL. It is like nothing I have ever gotten from a digital camera. The way shooting film makes me slow down and be more in the moment has made me a better photographer. And I wouldn't trade it for the world.
What: PROCESSED: a film workshop, is a film bootcamp of sorts. It is a one day intensive workshop on the hows and whys of shooting film and incorporating it into your workflow (be it a full film transfer or becoming a hybrid shooter).
Who can attend: This is a FILM 101-401 kind of workshop. It is designed for the digital photographer that wants to explore the film medium as well as the film photographer that wants to up their game. Basic knowledge of shooting on manual is required. A film camera (or access to one) is important, but you need not be familiar with it or have even shot film before.
* We will focus on the hows and whys of technical shooting with film. We will go over cameras formats, film stocks, metering, light sources (natural and artificial) and all the good stuff that you need to know to ACTUALLY shoot film with success.
*In the afternoon we will be devoted to shooting a couple using all the techniques learned earlier. This is a simple styled shoot and you will be able to use these images for your portfolio immediately. Each person gets personal attention and time to shoot. We will talk about posing and working with REAL couples (not models) so that you can use these techniques with your clients.
*In the evening we will convene for dinner together. It is a time of fun and a time to ask me anything! Nothing formal here, but I am an open book!
COST: The cost for the workshop is $600 and is limited to 10 photographers. Lunch, snacks and dinner are provided. Travel & hotel are not included. A private FB group will be created to discuss lodging/transportation and for us to share info.
Extras: I love extras so here are a few I am happy to offer as part of the workshop:
* a headshot done by me to use for your business
* a portfolio review of your recent work
* a website critique
* a review and critique of your images from the workshop to help you grow!
* plenty of goodies from my various sponsors & prizes!
