Working with Cristina was disappointing to say the least. While the pictures turned out nice, her overall attitude and level of customer service were unacceptable, in my opinion. She was extremely difficult to work with - She refused to arrive at the time we requested on the day of the wedding, even thought she advertises she will be there all day. She was abrasive towards my parents, my bridal party and myself, making the entire process extremely uncomfortable. Her level of responsiveness was disappointing - I often had to email/call 3-4 time before receiving any type of communication from her. Most disappointingly, we did not receive all of the items we ordered from Cristina until 7 MONTHS after our wedding. While many photographers go above and beyond to provide a preview and final photos in a timely manner, this was not our experience. To all the brides out there, you only get once chance for someone to capture your special day. Overall, we were extremely disappointed.

Do not use this photographer! She is extremely unprofessional and very rude. She took my engagements and my bridals. My bridal session lasted less than one hour (she was contracted to do a full hour) and the pictures turned out terribly. The lighting and poses she used made the pictures look like they had been taken by someone who was not a professional photographer. I contacted her about it and her and her husband yelled at me on the phone, saying that the pictures turning out poorly was my fault. I asked her to refund the money I had paid her to do the wedding and she refused. I told her that she could keep the money from the engagements and bridals, but I wanted the money for the wedding back since she wasn't going to be there. I ended up canceling and not getting my money back. I found a photographer to retake my bridals and do my wedding two weeks before. She was not easy to work with. She took weeks to return emails and phone calls and was always rude and not flexible. I still have yet to receive the guest book and photos I ordered from her over a year ago. Save yourself the trouble and find someone better!

Working with Cristina and Gabe was the worst experience I have ever had, she was an absolute NIGHTMARE! There are several moments that never got captured (a portrait of the bride in her dress, the bride and mother, the groom and his father, the groom at the altar, the groom getting ready...the list goes on and on) because they weren't typical photos she captures for weddings. I was very disappointed with Cristina's attitude towards guests, she had a diva attitude and refused to take several photos I asked for on the day of my wedding (a group family photo, a photo with my flower girls..). In the weeks following our wedding she ignored several phone calls, voice mails, text messages and emails. It took her days or weeks to respond if she responded to them at all. She truly lacked any professionalism. We did not receive our wedding photos until 17.5 weeks after our wedding, Cristina felt this was a reasonable amount of time even though her contract claimed she usually returned photos in 4-8 weeks. When my husband and I confronted her about her lack of delivery on the contract she denied any fault and gave us all kinds of excuses ranging from her husband being sick, she had too many weddings, her kids were sick... the excuses went on and on. She told us at 7 weeks via email that she would have the photos ready closer to 8 weeks, I suppose 17.5 weeks is closer to 8 weeks than never. We asked for a partial reimbursement but she and her husband refused, more than that they completely lost it and argued with us for probably half an hour in their studio. It was only after this argument when we were leaving that they offered to give us 2 parent albums and a canvas print. Several days later when we tried to accept their offer they sent us a contract to sign stating they would deliver the products only if we agreed to keep our experience and the agreement confidential. They never admitted any kind of wrongdoing. Please save yourself from tarnishing your wedding memories.

Cristina and Gabe were a pleasure to work with. I couldn't have asked for someone better to take pictures and be apart of my special day. She was amazing when it came to taking the engagement photos as well as the bridals her work is AWESOME. I would recommend her to anyone I know. Working with her on the wedding day was AMAZING. Her and Gabe took such great pictures of my husband and I. She is great at getting back with you in a timely manner and she does an awesome job at working with your schedule to get things done. I had a great time working with her!!!!!!!! I am going to miss working with her!!!!!!!!!

Great packages which is why I went with Cris and Gabe to begin with. After working with them over the last year for engagements, bridals, and the wedding I am so happy I went with them, they made every shoot easy and comfortable. I would recommend them to anyone who wants great pictures and a ton of prints and canvas in their package.

Cristina did an absolutely amazing job with my daughter's bridal portraits and her engagement pictures. They were all so beautiful. It was extremely difficult to pick which pictures to use at the reception. She was wonderful during the bridal session with my daughter. She was able to get very unique pictures of her and they were beautiful. The pictures of my daughter and her fiance were so cute. I could not believe how much fun it looked like they were having. I cannot wait to see the wedding photographs. She is a wonderful photographer.

Cristina, Gabe and their assistant were a dream to work with! From the very first meeting with Cristina I knew it was a good fit. Finding a great photographer that you mesh well with and doesn't charge an arm and a leg is tough, but if you go with a lifetime of memories you will definitely get your money's worth!

My husband (then fiancé) and I met with Cristina and knew we had to have her for a photographer. As I mentioned, we had a tough time narrowing down all that is out there, but she is so fun, bubbly and talented that there was no question after our meeting.

The package included a free engagement session and a free bridal session. This was such a great opportunity to get to know her and her style of photography and for her to get to know how we operate and take direction. It was so much fun during both sessions. She is always early, and I usually am myself, but she always arrived before me. I was very impressed!

The wedding day was fantastic, and we essentially had 3 sets of hands helping with the pictures which really came in handy. Their new assistant was still learning, but fit in just fine. Cristina was always there when I needed a picture with a special family member at the reception and never got in the way.

I will absolutely use her for any professional pictures we need in the future. Thank you so much for helping make my wedding experience so wonderful!
