I fell in love with Crissy the moment we met. I was introduced to her by our wedding planner and from the first meeting, I immediately knew she was the one to hire. I admit, I was a lazy bride... I didn't even want to take engagement photos. However, Crissy insisted that we should do it because it will help her get to know us better and be comfortable with her during our wedding. Of course, she was right! Our engagement pictures turned out great. We were not used to being photographed so it was awkward at first, but Crissy knew exactly what we needed... to get outdoors. Once outside, we felt relaxed and happy. Crissy was right again! At our wedding, things were pretty hectic because we could not get into this park we wanted to take pictures at. But Crissy was calm, cool and collected... she took charge and found a new place to take pictures that was even better than the park. I couldn't be happier with hiring Crissy, she has the best attitude and amazing skills. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I highly recommend her for your wedding (if you can book her!).

It's been two years since I got married and I'm still so in love with Crissy's work! You can tell she truly loves what she does and the energy she gives off just makes you smile. Her photos really captured every moment of the night. Every time I look back at those pictures, it feels like I'm there all over again! I believe a great photographer is a necessity for your wedding day because you will look back at these for years to come. Crissy really went above and beyond for me and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer!

Crissy is better than an ice cold margarita on a hot summer’s day and coming from a Texas girl that is the ultimate compliment. She captures love on camera so purely and is absolutely the most creative person that I have ever worked with. I wanted my engagement shoot to be something out of the ordinary. I wanted something styled but not overworked, elegant but not boring, hip but not trendy. I know sounds confusing, right?!?! Well, not to a photographic genius like Crissy, she definitely understood what I was looking for and then exceeded those expectations.

She has a personality that rivals sunshine and does not over direct, which was a big deal for me. She simply allowed my husband and me to be ourselves on film. Crissy is extraordinary and that shows in her work. On the day of our wedding, she even stayed beyond the time we had paid for to make sure that she got the perfect shots. I can’t sing her praises enough.

You’d be doing yourself a disservice if you went to anyone else. It’s like she sees you through the eyes of your loved one and I’m so lucky to have my husband’s love for me captured on film.

We LOVE LOVE LOVE Crissy! Not only is she super fun to be around, but she is an absolute genius with her photography!

We are definitely not the photo-taking type and Crissy managed to make us look awesome... and at the same time, capture our true personalities. She is one of a kind and invaluable... people who saw our engagement photos raved about how it looked like a photo shoot from a magazine.

If you want creative photos that are beyond just "Smile and look happy", you need to at least make an appointment to meet with Crissy. One meeting and your mind will already be made up! ;)

I've heard so many horror stories about photographers... so just remember: Photographs are what you'll have to remember the wedding by... make sure your photographer is Crissy and you won't regret it!

Crissy (Christine Farah) is the best wedding photographer EVER. My Maid Of Honor, who is a Graphic Designer, found Crissy's website and said she had a creative eye and had me check her out. We automatically clicked with Crissy and hired her right away. She makes you feel so comfortable, MAKES SURE YOU LOOK SKINNY and shoots your good angles, has a beautiful bubbly personality and everyone in my wedding absolutely loved her. My husband and I are so thrilled with ALL the shots she got. I highly recommend hiring Crissy! Check out her awesome blog…. www.itsjustsillyme.com.

We have researched many photographers in the LA area and came across Crissy (Christine Farah) on Project Wedding, she also came highly recommended by our coordinator's friend; in my opinion, no one has come close to Crissy's distinctive style. We LOVE her technique of photography, its chic, playful yet romantic, natural and softWOW! We wanted our wedding photos to be mind-boggling amazing and Crissy exceeded our expectations. Although our wedding was in LA - We're from the Bay Area and Crissy flew to SF to shoot our engagement photos. She is so easygoing and fun to work with, not to mention very professional. Her laugh is so infectious and her personality is so lovable. Crissy was my sanity on the day of our wedding. There were a few minor kinks during the big day, Crissy saw i was overwhelmed so she took charge and made things flow so smoothly.. I can't thank Crissy enough. Not only is Crissy our magnigicently creative photographer, she is now our friend. A 5 star rating for Crissy just doesn't justified how awesome she is... If you want the BEST -- Crissy is your gal!

Crissy is hands down the best photographer! She captured who we are in our engagement and wedding photos. Shooting with her was so much fun. The actual wedding day can be chaotic and a mile a minute but Crissy was our cool, calm and collected rock. She was part photographer, part cruise director and part therapist. We couldn't have done it without her! I can't wait to do a baby/family photo shoot with her next.

My fiance and I just had our engagement session and Crissy is such a delight to be around! We haven't seen all of the images yet, but she posted several on her blog. Her work is absolutely gorgeous and she does amazing things with light. She has a wonderfully creative eye, was able to direct us, and make us feel super comfortable even when there were tons of people around. I've been following her blog for a while now and she somehow seems to improve constantly on her already amazing work! I give her 5 stars for being such a sweet/fun person and for doing beautiful things through her lens. I will post an update once my wedding comes around!

WE'RE LOVE CRISSY!! We found Crissy after doing a lot of blog stalking. It was a delight when we came across her website, and from that moment we knew she was the one! Our engagement photos were hot! She captured only our best side and we even used a 20x30 enlargement from the shoot for our wedding day ceremony. It was a BIG hit with all the guests. During the engagement photos, Crissy was sensitive to our personal preferences...but at the same time adventurous!--those were some of the best pictures we had! She shares the cutest studio space with Kerrie (Wedding Coord: Platinum Weddings by Kerrie), and they are the BEST team! The best thing about the dynamic is that they are on the same page about so many things! Crissy did everything so perfectly..the professional level of her team was admirable and it definitely kept my nerves calm. Simply put..Crissy is 100% pure talent~ She really goes all out for each of her clients!

Crissy is a true talent! We were blown away by our wedding photos and have received compliments from everyone who has seen them. She truly captured the feeling of our day and her fun, fresh, creative ideas made for some awesome pics. Not only is her photography fabulous, but her fun, positive personality was a breath of fresh air. Crissy was calm, patient and organized and managed to get all the needed shots despite the 100 degree temperature, the bridal party running a little late, several wandering family members, etc. She made everyone feel very comfortable and helped make our day very enjoyable. I HIGHLY recommend Crissy to any bride. Thanks to Crissy and her hubby for capturing our day and for being such awesome, talented people. Can't wait for our 'Liberate the Dress' shoot!

Love Love Love Crissy! Crissy stepped in at the last minute and saved my Bpics when my original photographer backed out. She really went out of her way to help a complete stranger out. She is so much fun that I instantly felt comfortable with her and what I had been dreading (being semi-naked and taking photos) turned into a blast. She is professional, creative, patient, funny, and a fantastic photographer. I am so excited to see the final product and am sure my FI will die when he gets the photo album. Though I am very happy with the photographer I have for my wedding I would snap up Crissy in a second if I didn't already have one. Thanks again Crissy. I will be seeing you soon for those pregnancy pics, and baby pics, and .... ;)

My pictures turned out absolutely stunning and my DH was sooo impressed. When you meet Crissy you instantly feel comfortable around her. Crissy and I met at a Starbucks and we ended up talking for 2 hours about weddings and life. During the shoot she was extremely professional and she has a natural talent to channel her creativity through her pictures. She'll never push you to something you're not comfortable doing but more importantly she makes you look like a HOT lady!!!! ***UPDATE*** Crissy just recently shot our Liberate the Dress session and she is simply amazing!!!

At the time we booked Crissy, she had photographed a handful of weddings and was just beginning to get her name out there. I had seen her work thanks to some Orange County knotties who had free boudoir sessions with her, and I was really amazed by her talent. We had already booked our photographer months before, but there was definitely trouble in paradise, and so I kept Crissy in mind. At that time, I felt really conflicted: we had already paid a lot of money to our first photographer and didn't want to lose it, but we weren't happy with our engagement pictures either. I got in touch with Crissy by phone during the height of our issues with our first photographer to see if she could be the second shooter for our wedding. I really wanted some creative images, and even at that point, with little (paid) experience under her belt, she was already known for just that. Instead of talking to me as a vendor, Crissy talked to me as a friend and fellow bride, having just gotten married herself, and told me that it was really important to me to be completely happy with my photographer. In short, Crissy gave me the courage to convince my husband into pursuing a photographer we were completely satisfied with. It was a decision that neither my husband nor myself have ever regretted. We met with several photographers before Crissy, but once we met with her (and spent two hours joking around with her and her husband), we knew she was the one. I will never forget what my husband said after we left our initial meeting: "We're hiring her!" Anyone who really knows my husband knows that he's not normally that decisive, but he was obviously very impressed (and for good reason). What can I say except that Crissy is amazing? She really worked with me to get our engagement pictures taken on the same day as my hair and makeup trial, even though it was on Father's Day. Our engagement pictures were all so beautiful and creative. Within two weeks I had a disc of all 60+ images. One of the greatest things that Crissy does is get involved with her clients. She helped me with my indecision about flowers by sending me different images of flowers through email. She was the one who gave me the idea for our centerpieces. On my wedding day, she made me feel so good about everything (especially the way I looked) and even took on multiple roles. She helped my hairstylist put my veil in properly and retied my and my woman of honors bouquets (which sounds easier than it really was). She sat in the bridal room with me before I went to go see my husband for the first time, and we cried together. I even saw her wiping away tears at our ceremony. She was not only our wedding photographer; she was our friend. I felt really sad when she left for the day, because she had really become part of our lives. Our wedding photos (900+) are nothing short of amazing. They make me feel like I'm reliving my wedding day again. I laugh and cry while looking at them, just as I laughed and cried on my wedding day. I have gotten so many compliments from so many people about our photos, and I think a lot of people that I know would have used her for their needs, but her prices have now skyrocketed. Still, I have recommended a lot of people to Crissy, because she was, hands down, our best vendor. She was worth every penny. I can honestly say that losing our $400 deposit for our first photographer was so worth it. Our album is also beautiful. Crissy did a wonderful job designing it and even added in four extra pages for free. I will definitely be using Crissy for our future needs. She captured such special moments in such a beautiful way that I feel that she is an integral part of our wedding day and our married life.

Anyone who really knows my husband knows that he's not normally that decisive, but he was obviously very impressed (and for good reason). What can I say except that Crissy is amazing? She really worked with me to get our engagement pictures taken on the same day as my hair and makeup trial, even though it was on Father's Day. Our engagement pictures were all so beautiful and creative. Within two weeks I had a disc of all 60+ images. One of the greatest things that Crissy does is get involved with her clients. She helped me with my indecision about flowers by sending me different images of flowers through email. She was the one who gave me the idea for our centerpieces. On my wedding day, she made me feel so good about everything (especially the way I looked) and even took on multiple roles. She helped my hairstylist put my veil in properly and retied my and my woman of honors bouquets (which sounds easier than it really was). She sat in the bridal room with me before I went to go see my husband for the first time, and we cried together. I even saw her wiping away tears at our ceremony. She was not only our wedding photographer; she was our friend. I felt really sad when she left for the day, because she had really become part of our lives. Our wedding photos (900+) are nothing short of amazing. They make me feel like I'm reliving my wedding day again. I laugh and cry while looking at them, just as I laughed and cried on my wedding day. I have gotten so many compliments from so many people about our photos, and I think a lot of people that I know would have used her for their needs, but her prices have now skyrocketed. Still, I have recommended a lot of people to Crissy, because she was, hands down, our best vendor. She was worth every penny. I can honestly say that losing our $400 deposit for our first photographer was so worth it. Our album is also beautiful. Crissy did a wonderful job designing it and even added in four extra pages for free. I will definitely be using Crissy for our future needs. She captured such special moments in such a beautiful way that I feel that she is an integral part of our wedding day and our married life. Read less

Chrissy and her husband, Marcus, were our photographer for our wedding in San Diego, and we also did an engagement session with them in Los Angeles. They were beyond amazing to work with. They were both so professional, on time, enthusiastic, passionate, and accommodating. When our wedding coordinator was aloof and not paying attention, Chrissy and Marcus stepped in and helped us throughout the day. Our wedding party noticed how helpful, sincere, and on top of it our photographers were. Our engagement photos turned out so beautifully - so soft and romantic - and we had such a fun time taking the photos with them. We still haven't seen our wedding photos yet, but just wanted to write a review for everything so far since they were one of the best choices we made in our wedding planning :)
