We're Christen and Patrick

For us, photography is more than clicking a button or telling you where to stand. Images you love happen when you feel most natural and we prioritize your experience first and foremost.

Hi there!

A husband and wife photography team capturing light and heartfelt images with joyful intention. We are best friends frequently found sipping espresso and documenting our Havanese pup, Jellybean. We believe that Chinese takeout is a food group, the best date nights are free, and that there is no such thing as too much Harry Potter. 

Our goal is to capture the way your day feels to you. We are your eyes and ears, always on the lookout for meaningful moments while providing an experience in which you see yourself naturally and at your very best.

Christen and Patrick are so amazing! Ryan and I totally enjoyed the shoot with them. We felt so comfortable during the shooting. Also ALL the engagement photos are FANTASTIC!

Ryan & Vicky

Christen and Patrick are the best! You'd regret not having her as your photographer! Both me and my husband are camera shy people, but Christen and Patrick were so down to earth that it felt like we're just hanging out with friends!

Kender & Vicky

Not only is Christen super easy to work with, she truly cares about the people she photographs. She made sure to help us focus on what really mattered most: our wedding.

I look at the pictures Christen took everyday, and I would pick her in a heartbeat if I had to do it all over again! Pick Christen.
