I'm Christa, a professional wedding and portrait photographer, based in Leeds, West Yorkshire.
I live in Leeds with my wonderful, supportive and very patient husband, Dane.
I love a good cup of tea, chilling at home in my 'cosies' on a rainy day and exploring the various gluten free options on offer across Leeds' independent cafes.
I started photographing weddings and portraits several years ago when my Dad (cheers Dad) needed a second shooter for the day. I'd been "into" photography whilst studying it at college and as part of my university course, but I never understood the sheer joy you get from photographing people and their loved ones until that day.
WOW, that was it. I was hooked!
Now I travel all across Yorkshire and the North West photographing lovely people in all sorts of special places.
It is such an honour to be asked to photograph someone and to convey through a set of photographs a sense of who they are, their relationship and values, a story, whether that's through a portrait session or a wedding.
I just love it, nothing bring's me more happiness than sharing in someone else's joy. I'm a hopeless romantic and 9 times out of 10 I have a happy cry when my couples say 'I do'.
