CONFIDENT YOU made the best decision for YOUR special daY
Hey, I get it. You're feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the options out there and making the right choice. I know this decision is a big deal. You don’t want a photographer who disappears after you book with them or that you don't trust to do the job they promised.
You want a wedding photographer who will be there with you every step of the way to offer support, advice, and listen to what you truly want. Well, you're in the right place... because that's exactly what I do.
YOU SHOULD EXPECT MORE
All of my couples know that I'm just a quick message away, ready to help in any way that I can.
I'll give you advice based on my professional experience, thinking of things that may not have crossed your mind.
Above everything, I care about telling your unique story and documenting all the details you’ve spent so much time planning.
LET ME BE THERE WITH YOU FROM BEGINNING TO END
From the moment the ring is placed on your finger until you’re holding your wedding album in your hands

Ruth & Dakota
"WE FELT AT EASE THE WHOLE TIME"
"From the moment I found Christy, my husband and I felt at ease. She gets to know what aspects of the day are most important to you so she can capture them. When I look at our images, I feel so happy! She was able to capture pictures that I can’t wait to frame!"
KRYSTAL & ELVIN
"We usually feel super awkward in front of the camera. Christy made us feel beautiful and so comfortable! My husband actually admitted that he had fun! If you want genuine, fun, and beautiful photos captured, I highly recommend her!"
EVA & SAM
"Christy was everything we were looking for in a wedding photographer. Come the wedding day, we had zero stress about pictures which was HUGE for me. When we got our photos back, we were awestruck. They looked so gorgeous and we were both amazed."

I have structured my wedding experience very intentionally. Everything that I offer and recommend is a strategic part of an overall experience that leads to what my CHP Couples ultimately desire: bright, colorful images that reflect joyful, intimate moments. The most significant and purposeful aspects of the Christy Hunter Wedding Experience include:
I found that for a traditional wedding day where everything is at one location, I need a minimum of 9 hours to capture the full story of your day with a stress-free timeline. I'll be there from the moment you slip on your dress, until your dad busts a move on the dance floor, and everything in between.
I include an engagement session complimentary because this is my opportunity to get to know you and empower you to feel comfortable in front of the camera. No one likes to feel awkward!
I always have a second photographer with me on wedding days! This allows your gallery to be full of images with unique and different perspectives.
the features listed above are just a fraction of everything that I do for my couples!
I wish I could work with every incredible couple that comes my way, but I do limit the number of weddings I take on every year. This ensures that every bride and groom get the attention they deserve. I’m typically booked out about 8-12 months in advance!
"I can't get over how perfect it was. We have looked at our wedding photos nonstop and haven't even been able to put into words how much we love them!"
CHRISTY & BAILEY
Your wedding day is an important milestone in your life and an event that deserves unparalleled attention and care. Whether you send me 3 emails over the next year or 50, I’ll respond with just as much enthusiasm and detail from beginning to end. I always want to do more, give more, and to be more for my clients. That’s my promise to you.
I'm so happy that you're here and thinking about allowing me to serve you and your sweetheart on your special day! Want more details about what you can expect from me? I've got lots of info for you below so keep on reading!
Whether it's responding to an email from you or photographing your wedding day, I am always focused on the details! To me, staying organized while paying attention to all the "little things" is key to an amazing wedding day experience AND a beautiful gallery of images. On top of providing you lots of educational resources to help you feel prepared, I also create a custom timeline tailored to your specific needs.
I just can't tell you how happy it makes me to see the unique touches you choose to feature on your wedding day that really speak to your personality. Are you two exchanging some One Ring-inspired wedding bands? Prepare to hear me belt out some Elvish! Want to have a light saber staged exit from your reception? May the force be with you! Never choose to hide the parts of you that you love about each other and that set your soul on fire!
Something that I hear a lot from the couples I've served is how relaxed and fun our time together is. While I take my job very seriously, I also want you to enjoy yourself! On your wedding day, you'll be spending more time with me than practically anyone else. I want you to feel at ease and truly enjoy the excitement that fills the day. If you don't feel free to be yourself around your photographer then your images won't feel like you.
DO YOU LOVE TO PLAN?
OR DO YOU FEEL OVERWHELMED AND NEED HELP?
You don't just get a photographer when you work with me. I become a part of your team, ready to put the fun and excitement back into preparing for your wedding day.
SMALL WEDDINGS & ELOPEMENTS START AT $3200
full day wedding investment average is $5700
When you first inquire, I'll ask you a few questions to get an idea of what you both need and want. Next, I'll send you my Investment information with guidance so you aren't left guessing what the best option for you is. Then it's time to make things official!
Now the fun stuff! After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session. And no worries... I’ll walk you both through the whole shoot! Your engagement session is what will provide you a strong foundation for your wedding day. This is a time for us to get to know one another, get comfortable working together, and allow you to spend time together in front of the camera with no stress!
I work with every one of my couples to ensure that they will have a custom timeline that works perfectly for their particular wedding day. We want to make sure that nothing gets left out due to a schedule that's too restricted! The goal for your big day is no stress and all fun!
Your special day has finally arrived! Yay!!! I want to make sure to capture every detail of your wedding day--that's why I rarely photograph less than 8 hours! And my absolute FAVORITE part of the whole evening? Capturing your very first portraits as HUSBAND & WIFE. Eeeek!!!
Within one month of your wedding day, you'll receive all of your high-resolution files via an online gallery. From there, you'll be able to easily download, share, and print all your beautiful images.
What is your shooting style like? Are you giving direction all day long or are you quietly taking photos from a distance?
I love being both interactive and discreet throughout the wedding day. There will be parts of the wedding day when I will need to be in control in order to accomplish everything that needs to be done while staying on schedule. There will also be moments when you shouldn’t even know that I’m there. (The ceremony, during dances and toasts, etc.) I teach my couples how to pose, model, and interact during their engagement
session so they are naturals on the wedding day and don’t need quite as much instruction from me!
How many images will we receive in our final gallery and how will they be delivered to us?
I average 40-50 images per hour that I’m shooting. This number can vary in number if you have an ultra detailed wedding versus a more simplistic design, whether or not you choose to have a First Look together, etc. I love delivering my client’s files quickly and easily via an online gallery. You will have the ability to print, share, and download your images as much as you want. I believe in freely sharing my work because that is what I would want if I were in your shoes!
What if I haven't chosen a wedding venue yet?
That's okay! If you are more set on having a specific date and not as focused on where you say "I do" then push for the date you want! You can lock in your date with me and we will add in the venue details when you figure that out. However, if you have your heart set on a specific venue, lock in the date with them FIRST and then work on securing all of your amazing wedding vendors!
Are you willing to travel further from your home for engagement sessions?
I am more than willing to travel for engagement sessions! I actually love it when my couples ask me to photograph them in a location that means something special to them! Depending on what time of year you're thinking of having your Engagement Session, I recommend booking them at least two months in advance, earlier if you want a really popular season/holiday. 60 miles of travel to and from your session are included.
Ok, I'm so ready! How do I book?!
Once I have answered any questions you may have and you have decided that my Wedding Experience is exactly what you’re looking for on your wedding day, the next step is a booking proposal. I will create an online proposal that will walk you through the package and when you’re ready you can save your date by signing your contract and paying your retainer online. Easy peasy!
