Our style is simple: We work with amazing people who value love and laughter above everything else. Our clients know that the moments and milestones they’ll share together are worth more than gold. They want a luxury experience without all the fuss, they adore their friends and family, and they want to carpe the heck out of each diem. They’re a perfect mix of refined and relaxed — just like us.

We specialize in awesome people.


Film has soul.


People always ask me, “Why film? Why shoot something so old?”

There’s only one answer I ever have for them: FILM HAS SOUL. The richness and depth of color on film are incredible. I wouldn't trade it for the world. No digital camera will ever render a moment as beautifully as film. Film has my heart, and I believe it’s the best medium for me to tell your story. 

We deliver quality.


We create a custom, luxury experience for each of our awesome clients. To make this happen, we accept a limited number of wedding, teaching, and portrait commissions each year. We want to ensure we’re a perfect fit, so reach out to us and let's get the conversation rolling! 

Weddings with Christina start at $5850. Associate weddings begin at $3450. Cinematography starts at $1950. Portrait photography is customized per client.

I love life. There is no other way of describing me. I’m a mom of two adventurous little boys and wife to a pretty fab guy. I’m notorious for crying during parent dances and boogie-ing down with my couples on the dance floor. I do Muay Thai, run, hike, play classical piano, and believe books should be read on paper. I love Star Wars, Disney songs, and 80s music more than most people would consider proper. I watch anime, sci-fi, and old musicals. I love a good nap and perfectly brewed coffee. I prefer savory to sweet — unless it's Nutella, because let's face it, Nutella is the ambrosia of the gods. Life is about experiences, and I'm all in.

Meet Carroll

I’ve been behind the scenes at CZ Studio for the past four years, assisting Christina at weddings and as her Studio Manager. I'm a recent bride myself (yes, Christina took my wedding photos) and married to the most amazing man. Together we hike, travel, eat a lot of Chinese food, and watch WAY too many Friends reruns (explains my crazy love for coffee). I'm also a mom to the two most adorable (and spoiled) little fur-babies, Levi and Chloe. The more you get to know me, you’ll realize how much I love the simple moments of life and find meaning in everything.

Meet Anthony

The first thing you notice about me is my hair. It's big, it's loud and it's fabulous. Just like me! I love life, people and want to hear your stories! Nothing makes me happier than to meet a new friend and share in their joy! I really am this happy, I swear! Christina calls me the Guru of Fabulousness! I'm here to make sure all our clients are well taken care of, loved on, and feel like the incredible people they are!
