Christina was an absolute joy and made our wedding day all the more special. We were drawn to her playful style and beautiful and warm film shots and could not be happier with the outcome. Christina took our engagement pictures first and worked with us overtime to help us get shots with beautiful light and in just the right locations. Her fun, energetic, and vibrant self made it easier for us to open up and be in the moment. On the wedding day, it was such a joy to have her there. She made every effort to fit in many family portraits in a packed event. She managed to capture every important ritual and moment in our multicultural wedding ceremony. Her team was amazing as well. Our wedding was all day and Christina and her team stayed from the early morning through to midnight. What was most touching to us was the effort Christina and her team took to capture our closest friends and family in candid and poignant moments. We could not be happier that Christina was our wedding photographer!!
Christina was an incredible addition to our wedding team. My husband and I look back on our pictures regularly (seriously like every week) because Christina did such a perfect job capturing the magic of the day. If you're looking for a photographer who really goes the extra mile to capture every moment, you've found her. Christina even climbed up on top of a barn loft to capture the pure joy of the Hora at our wedding. Everyone on her team are total pros, and Christina is extremely low key and keeps everyone calm the day of. She does a great job of really getting into the feel of the moment but not disrupting it, honestly we never knew she was there. We loved working with Christina and would recommend her to anyone looking for a true gem of a candid wedding photographer.
What to say besides Christina is pure gold? My now wife Erin and I eloped on NYE outside of Seattle in my hometown. Our goal for the elopement was to have a whole day all about us and our love without posing or thinking about the fact that someone was taking photos of us. Christina not only captured the ENTIRE day (talking 10+ hours), but she also helped us to be our natural selves. This relaxed natured showed in ours pictures and we could not love that more. The quality of Christina's work and the lengths she is willing to go are unmatched. Walking into an overgrown forest in the rain? No problem. Scampering over slippery questionable foot bridges during our ceremony? She will get it done. There are some series of photos I actually don't know how she got without a second shooter. My favorite parts about our photos: - the warm quality film brings (so worth it) - the editorial approach to capturing us in our element - the way she captured us at our most beautiful (there are photos we hope our future children will see and think "wow thats my mom") - how well they tell the full story of our love day We really could not be happier. If you are looking for a photographer who can capture you and your day authentically, and beautifully Christina McNeill is the photographer to book.
I first discovered Christina's work on Pinterest through a wedding over 5 years ago. I was immediately struck by how genuine and chic her photos were. After constantly seeing the same kind photos on social media, I was so excited about her unique images. Fast forward to years later, and I looked to find out who was behind the beautiful work. I reached out to Christina immediately and was struck by how well we connected over the phone. From day one she completely understood what we were looking for! Leading up to our day, she was incredibly flexible and patient as plans continued to change. A Covid-19 wedding is not easy for anyone — but she made the process seamless. I knew she was dependable and would make it work! At the end of the day, knowing we'd have beautiful memories captured by her photos brought me so much peace. On the day of the wedding, we woke up to a heat wave. The 110 degree weather was grueling, especially for Christina and her assistant who remained on their feet and running around for the right shot all day long. Still, she got every important moment with grace. Being that most of our family members and friends could not attend, having photos to share felt so important. Christina's ability to capture the real feeling of the evening allowed our dearest loved ones to feel like they had experienced the day as well. I can't recommend Christina or her work highly enough. She is quick to respond, encouraging when you are behind the camera, and delivers amazing and unique photos. THANK YOU!
I was referred to Christina by a mutual friend, and the SECOND I saw her portfolio, I knew she was the photographer I wanted for our wedding. I had no interest in the stereotypical, stiff wedding photos I'd so often seen. I wanted something more editorial, more edgy and more fun - and Christina delivered in every instance. I absolutely loved the way she captured so many candid moments in different ways...in addition to some more formal pictures, too. She and her assistant, Clarissa, were so kind and so easygoing. They made it easy for our families to relax and take great photos, which is highly unusual (haha). I couldn't be happier with the photos we received and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for something above and beyond the usual cookie cutter photography.
