RAD WEDDING & Portrait PHOTOGRAPHY FOR love struck humans worldwide 



Get to KNow me

Sooo… Let’s just be honest, shall we? Do you really want to look back at the BEST day of your life only to see the super posed, super boring, and super “meh” photos of you and Aunt Betty saying “Cheese”… No?  Thank God!  Because that is NOT my jam…

Your day will be crazy… It will be filled with too much drinking, too much laughing, and way too many bad dance moves… So why not capture that? The ugly cries, the snorting laughter, the heart wrenching tears.

hey y'all...

I'm Chrissy


Joshua Tree Wedding Photographer & Elopement Photographer

fun • laid back • real



Yep... I am "that" girl... you know the one on the elevator that doesn't face forward, but rather sticks to the sides so that I can have a nice clear view of all the fabulous people I plan on making friends with on my way up! 



Keeping it...

That crazy IN LOVE couple that everyone secretly wishes they were…The ones who can’t keep their hands off each other! You’re in love…and frankly you just don’t give a damn who knows it! You’re both pretty laid back, no fuss, but you definitely know how to rock a party…And when it comes to YOUR day – you’re in to win it and you’re NOT looking to stand around, spending countless precious hours taking the typical BORING wedding photos! NOPE…You’re unique, FUN, and ready to party! 

Your super BLONDE, over caffeinated, tattoo loving photographer! I’m on the prowl and seeking the REAL DEAL… Give it to me! Mom and Dad getting a little tipsy and grinding on the dance floor…YESSS PLEASE!! My job is simple: I'm  here for YOU… To search and rescue all of those “oh so real”, unforgettable moments that will seriously be gone in like ten seconds. And if this means that I need to get “jiggy” with it on the dance floor with Uncle Bob to get it, count me in – I’ll take one for the team!

"Where to begin... Not only are Chrissy photographs absolutely breath takingly beautiful, she became part of the family from the very first visit. After flying her out to DC for our engagement session and having several days of quality time with her, I can truly say she is one of the most beautiful people we have come into contact with and is stuck with us for life."

                                                                                 - Lynnea and Fran

"Chrissy’s work immediately stood out. Pristine editing aside, we couldn’t help but notice how DIVERSE her clients were and how BEAUTIFULLY she captured every single couple. She clearly knew how to make EVERYONE feel fabulous and comfortable in their own skin. My husband is pretty camera shy, and I can tell you that even he was won over by Chrissy from the very beginning! Her kind, warm, bubbly personality just completely overwhelms you! You can’t help but feel like you’ve known her for years and she’s a friend that just happens to know how to take the most amazing photos!
                                                                    - John and Judith                                                                                            

Listen up gals and guys, if you are looking for an amazing wedding photographer (or just a LIFE photographer) - STOP YOUR SEARCHING - YOU HAVE FOUND HER! Chrissy is a pot of gold at the end of the most incredible rainbow! Not only does she make your fantasy dream wedding photos come true, she also becomes a part of your family. Like, actually, my parents want to hang out with her more! 

                                                                              - Ryan and Cambria                                                           

"Chrissy is way MORE then just amazing, talented photographer. The min I reached out to her when searching for the perfect photographer for our wedding I knew she was the one. We just love her spunky personality and her way of making us feel so comfortable in front of the camera came so natural ! I couldn’t been more thankful to have had her capture the memories on the best day of our lives. Our photos turned out flawless! Chrissy is a true artist!                                                                                                                                          - Tyler and Briana                                     

"We both appreciated her fun and loving personality which made all my guests fall in love with her as well. I can not thank Chrissy enough for everything she did for us from the moment we booked her! She was one of the easiest and best decisions we have every made for our wedding day! We hope you book her and enjoy the lovely ride! We love her so much! Would book her again any day and do it all over!"

                                                                                          - Luke and Emily                                       

"There is absolutely no better person to spend your wedding day with; Chrissy is your ride or die photographer, and truly knows how to take care of her bride & groom (and everyone else in between)! She is the most ultimate hype-woman who will jump and scream to get those real legit smiles & giggles, and she absolutely sets the bar for what you should expect from your wedding photographer on your big day (and even on the days & months leading up to it)! My husband and I booked Chrissy before even talking or meeting with her, because we just felt her genuine personality from her photos and website. Her energy is contagious, and she makes you laugh and enjoy every second you are with her."

                                        - Nick and Stephanie

"You were there when we needed you! We absolutely adore our photos. They're even better than I could ever hope for. It's been over a month and I still can't stop scrolling through them! You turned our little ceremony into something that looked like a thoughtfully planned out wedding. You were a huge part of my favorite day ever and I can't thank you enough!  I loved our wedding and I  LOVE that I have pictures that we love! We love you!"

"From the first hang out "sesh" (we got tacos and margaritas because she's amazing), we knew Chrissy was THE photographer for our wedding. Her energy and positivity and true passion for what she does absolutely stands out. When you're picking a wedding photographer, you are picking someone that will be by your side at the most intimate, private moments of your day, and I knew Chrissy would make me feel 100% comfortable - and she did! Not to mention she's just so much fun and personable.

WOW! What can I say about Chrissy? Thank goodness there's a 3,000 word limit because I could go on and on about how absolutely PERFECT she is! My husband and I got married on January 5th of this year and every time we speak to our guests the first thing out of their mouth is "Oh my gosh, your photographer was amazing! She's the best! We love her!" (and that's before they even congratulate us!). I am so glad I found her after stalking venue instagrams for months. I knew I needed someone fun, creative, and incredibly talented with perfect color grading skills, and I got that in Chrissy.

This is a long overdue review. Chrissy photographed our wedding in November 2019 - back when things were a little more normal. Almost a year later, she's still the BEST decision I made for my day. If you're scrolling through, undecided, stop now! You've got her. Chrissy is so rad and fun. I've never been professionally photographed so I was nervous. I felt like Ricky Bobby in Talladega Nights when he doesn't know what to do with his hands. She eased all of my nerves and concerns. She was extremely easy to work with. It felt like I was hanging out with a friend. Not to mention, ALL of my photographs were incredible! Stop shopping around and hire my girl. 11/10 stars. Honestly, you won't regret it! Love you Chrissy! Thank you so much for being apart of our day.
