Love and Light from Christina Diane

The beautiful photography of San Francisco wedding photographer Christina Diane reminds me of why I love love. With a background in advertising and fashion photography, she brings out the glow of brides and grooms, all while telling their story in her thoughtfully editorial style. Of course, her photos speak for themselves…

This one is my favorite…

You can probably tell what I think of Christina’s gorgeous photos, but more importantly, what do her clients think? Says one: “If you want a totally unique, one of a kind experience that will leave you with original and gorgeous photos, then Christina is your girl!”

Christina is based in San Francisco but will happily travel anywhere to shoot your wedding. And if you weren’t already convinced, she’s offering a great deal just for Snippet & Ink readers: Book before January 15th and receive a complimentary 5×5 Cypress “Iris” wedding album!

    Christina photographed our wedding in Napa Valley. I didn’t live in the area, so we did all of the initial correspondence via email and telephone. She was always professional and hysterical and listened closely to my vision of that day. Additionally, she personally made everyone so comfortable and caught every amazing moment throughout our perfect day. She also scouted the area for locations that would set our photos apart. I get complements all the time about the whimsy and artistic point of view found in our wedding collection!

    Christina shot fabulous photos of our wedding this year. She’s not only incredibly talented, she’s also easy (and fun!) to work with. She snapped everything we wanted her to and more. She has a way about her that puts you at total ease. We knew she’d get the goods before we even saw the photos. If we ever need to hire a photographer again, we’d hire her in a minute. And in the meantime, I’m recommending her to any and everyone I know!

    We had met with so many photographers who promised a unique point of view; one that didn’t rely on all of the conventional poses and moments of a wedding, and it wasn’t until we met Christina that we believed such a point of view was possible. She brings creativity to every wedding she shoots. If you forget to tell her to make sure she snags all the details, don’t sweat it, because she finds them and helps you feel that all that work you put into every last detail WAS in fact worth it. Her style is to fade into the background, which means once you get the pics back, you are continually surprised because she captures the moments that are both obvious and subtle. And her ability to find just the right light to bring warmth and beauty into each photo is absolutely wonderful. In fact, her photos were so superb, they even got published in a local magazine here in San Francisco: http://www.7×

  • Christina did an amazing job shooting our destination wedding in Bend, Oregon. I am always so happy to whip out the album and share our photos with friends and family. She was able to capture a once in a life time moment while using a unique and creative perspective that complemented our personalities as well. Not an easy task! I highly recommend her to all of my friends and cant wait to work with her again.

    Christina shot our wedding, seen a few times here. She was amazing. She didn’t ask much of me, and met me at my house when it was convenient for me to get an idea of what I wanted / what was important etc. I loved how she was very honest, telling me the kind of photography she likes to do, and making sure we were in agreement–she’s not just out to get your money. Oh, and the photos! They were everything I could have hoped for and more. Both our engagement and wedding photos were amazing enough not only to wow us, friends and family-but also to get published! If you want some dynamite photos that will bring your special day to life every time you look at them-call Christina!

  • Yeah, Christina! So great to see your lovely feature in Snippet & Ink! I’m a fellow wedding vendor that has worked with Christina on various occasions and can’t praise her work ethic, style, drive and creativity enough. She’s an amazing photographer that I’d be happy to have for my own wedding day when it may come!

  • Leila Moatei says:

    Christina is THE BEST! She’s shot both my album covers and her work is just so soulful. She captures the little special moments in life that make it beautiful, beautifully. I can’t wait to get married so that she can shoot my wedding. I know she’ll do such an original job and her photos are always stunning….such a talented artist! :D

  • These are really amazing and beautiful photos! I am also into uniqueness and being creative which Christina possesses, so all of these photos in this post are absolutely stunning!

  • Sheree McNeill says:

    Christina has a way of capturing such intimate and beautiful moments. To this day I regret that I didnt have her shoot my wedding (i wanted her as a bridesmaid instead)-those photos couldnt hold a handle to what Christina would have done. She has such amazing vision and is such a talented young woman. I cannot wait to see what she does next.

  • Yes- every photo is so thoughtful and perfectly timed. I really love the photo of the couple under the arch of the tree- captivates my imagination.

  • Cheryl Zenski says:

    Christina does an amazing job. She has captured our family photo perfectly….she asked me to trust her and her vision when we shot our photo’s. The photo’s came out beautifully…she really captured what I wanted, even when I couldn’t express it.

  • Jennifer S. says:

    Christina is an amazing and talented photographer. She knows how to transform photos so they tell a story. Each wedding she has shot looks different and unique to the couple. Her work is quite exceptional.

  • Margery says:

    Christina is absolutely brilliant. She really goes the extra mile and makes you feel 100% confident that you will have beautiful photos, and she delivers! Christina shot my weddin in September and one of the most memorable parts of the weding was when we were walking down the streets of SF taking our wedding photos, it was breathtaking! I would recommend her to anyone who is getting married or needs a great photographer. She is fantastic to work with from beginning to ens and her work is fabulous!
