Christine and her team were such a joy to work with! Everything was kept extremely organized and professional. I especially liked that Christine was able to give me a customized quote, considering what I was looking for and my budget. She was easy to contact, and of course, her pictures were amazing. She caught so many great emotional moments, and everything looks so beautiful.

After a long and difficult journey of searching for a wedding photographer, we chose to work with Christine Lee Smith Photography. The decision came easy to us not too long after meeting her. She was an incredibly skilled, talented and warm person.

Through the process she was very personable, structured, organized and a motivated professional true to her craft. A calm demeanor yet infectiously positive, Christine demonstrates integrity, creativity and passion through her work.

Christine's photographs are lovely - artistic, beautiful, capturing the moment. The memories she has preserved for us are precious. We also appreciated her ability to blend into the situation which kept us comfortable and relaxed. The photo session after the ceremony was very low key and quick with good results. We were able to enjoy our reception without being bothered by lots of posed photos. I'd highly recommend Christine for her professionalism, artistry, and love of people. All of these qualities shine thru in her work!

My wife and I could not have asked for a more perfect photographer. Christine shot photos for our wedding as well as a session of engagement photos for us.

The quality of Christine's work is unbelievable. She has the ability to capture the most beautiful moments, serious and playful alike. She is very creative with her shots and seems to be able to not only find just the right moments, but just the right angles as well.

As far as responsiveness goes, Christine is top notch. Any time we needed to get a hold of her we could. She is always very prompt in returning phone calls and emails, and always does so with cheerful tone.

Christine is a very friendly person. My wife and I get along with her quite well and often found ourselves smiling and laughing with her. Christine always made us feel totally comfortable and I think that really comes though in her work. She is also very professional and when it's time to get down to business, she does.

The value for the cost was out of this world. As I stated before, Christine's work is incredibly beautiful. I have seen photos from photographer's who charge almost THREE TIMES what we paid, and they we not nearly HALF as good as Christine's. I really cannot stress this enough. Looking back, I would have gladly paid double for the work that Christine did for us.

Christine really made this experience great for us from start to finish. She is a wonderful person and an immensely talented photographer. I highly recommend Christine Lee Smith Photography to anyone and everyone looking for a great photographer.

Christine is a true professional with amazing talent. What she was able to capture during our big day and surrounding events blows me away. I knew I would love the photos she took but I didn't realize I would fall in love with them. The day goes by so fast and it's so wonderful to be able to look through all her work and let it walk you through the days events again with such detail.

Not only is her work tremendous but she's is a peach to work with and handles all the family, kids, wedding party, etc. with such patience and expertise.

Thanks to Christine for making our wedding day so memorable.

Christine did an amazing job with our wedding photographs! She was a pleasure to work with - professional, but extremely warm and friendly at the same time. She made sure to keep in constant contact with us before the wedding so that we didn't have to worry about anything.

At the wedding, I hardly noticed that Christine was there! She kept out of the way and still got amazing shots. She made sure to check that we were getting all the pictures we wanted, and she tried to use people's names, which she'd asked for before the wedding.

Christine's pictures turned out beautiful even though we weren't exactly in a spectacular setting (we married at the church I grew up at - extremely sentimental, but not so pretty). She has a creative, artistic eye, which she blends with some more traditional photos, so everyone wins - the modern bride and groom and the traditional parents. I recommend Christine without reserve!

Christine and her team of photographers were fantastic! I cannot believe how much I loved my pictures!! My whole family adored the photos too! Christine's team was so professional and organized- they really know how to photograph weddings, and get the most out of their subjects. They took photographs of not only the expected shots, but they took so many amazing detail shots and captured so many sweet moments that I would have not seen otherwise, since I was too busy being a bride! I cannot recommend CLS enough. If you want a great, professional photographer who can capture all your precious moments, pick Christine!
