Hello there! My name is Christine Tustin and you've probably figured out that I like pointing my camera at people...like a lot. I also love cat snuggles, coffee, and going on adventures with my family.  Here's a little bit about my story...

One thing is really clear to me -  that I love photographing people and I want to tell their stories. I've never been great at verbally telling or writing stories and I think that's why I love capturing them through images. I was introduced to photography back in high school when my dad handed me his film camera and said, "Here, have a ball." (Let's not even get started on how much film rocked my world). Since then, I've switched to digital and over the years have kept it a consistent passion - always dreaming of doing it professionally and swooning over other artists' work. Eventually, photography found me again at a career crossroads, and with the support of a great community and an incredibly encouraging husband, I chose my camera over a career that was draining me of all my goodness. So, here I am now, this Jersey-born, California-adopted girl, chasing dreams and pointing cameras at things. Being creative helps me breathe... I swear it keeps me sane and being here now and doing what I am doing, I feel like I am flying. I hope to never stop exploring, learning, and growing.

I'm all about making new connections and having conversation over cups of coffee (or insert beverage of choice). You've made your way to my page for a reason. There was something that drew you in here. Whether you've begun the ultimate search for the right wedding photographer you feel a connection with, or you're interested in a collaboration, I would love to know your story and what brought you here.
