behind the lens
Hi, I'm Christine!
I am a Jacksonville, Florida based wedding and portrait photographer who loves coffee (I consider myself an honorary Gilmore Girl!), Chick-fil-a sweet tea, sea shell hunting, traveling and exploring my new hobby of acrylic fluid painting! I've always had a love and passion for creating things since I was little. From building construction paper houses for my beanie babies, to learning how to weld and sculpt metal in college, I’ve always loved growing artistically.
My interest in photography began at a young age, documenting all of my family functions and various yearly events with my HP point and shoot digital camera (anyone else remember those?!). As I progressed into high school, I had an opportunity to be part of my yearbook staff and that is where I started to pursue my passions of graphic design and photography together. In 2010 I moved from Orlando to Jacksonville where I pursued and obtained my BFA with a concentration in Graphic Design and Digital Media from The University of North Florida. While going through school I had the opportunity to be a second shooter for a good friend of mine, and that is where I found a love for photographing weddings in addition to portraits! After marrying my husband, best friend, and primary second shooter, John Austin (yes I do actually call him by his full name lol) in 2016, I am now loving this new chapter of life as a full time photographer and freelance graphic designer, wife, and momma to our fur baby Savannah Pups.
I'm excited for this journey ahead and I can't wait to have the opportunity to work with you!
