Wedding Photographer Victoria B.C., Calgary & Costa Rica
My name is Christina and I'm a portrait and wedding photographer serving Victoria B.C., Vancouver and the lower mainland, Calgary, Canmore, Banff, Lake Louise, plus, I am based in Manuel Antonio in Costa Rica for destination weddings in the winter months. My style is a mixture of fine art, photojouranlism and funky.
I keep my blog up-to-date with all of my recent weddings and portrait sessions. You'll see a variety of ceremonies I've photographed from small, intimate elopements to large affairs - including Asian and South Asian weddings with 400+ people.
I have a master's degree in journalism from Carleton University with a specialization in documentary broadcast journalism. This was a great background for understanding how to tell visual stories. After working as an online communications manager for almost 10 years I found myself completely addicted to my camera to the point that I eventually quit ladder-climbing and went back to school at the Western Academy of Photography. We studied everything from studio to fashion to architecture to adventure sports and everything in between. And, guess what? Pretty much every niche I studied helped me become a better people photographer. I won the award for the Best Overall Student and I later became a faculty member, teaching both the wedding and business courses. I've also taught portrait and wedding photography at Camosun College. I'm actively involved in the photography community and I teach photography workshops across the country. Sharing knowledge is the best way to grow and I love helping other photographers succeed.
Canadian WeddingsIn Canada, I photograph weddings on the west coast of British Columbia and in Alberta's rocky mountains, including ">Victoria & Vancouver, plus Banff, Calgary, Canmore and Lake Louise.

Feel free to read the Wedding Frequent Questions, plus get some Ideas to help you plan an the best celebration ever. You can also view recent Costa Rica Weddings and Portrait sessions on my blog.
