We literally cannot say enough about this wonderful lady to give her the credit she deserves. She's so beautiful inside and out.
We immediately fell in love with her the moment we sat down to talk about our wedding plans over coffee and knew she was going to be the perfect photographer for our big day.
Christine has the sweetest personality and listens to everything you need and want to make your day as special as possible. Her photography is so different than anything I've seen before. I love how real and true it is to the people she is capturing. You can see their love and personality shine through the pictures.
For two not too photogenic people, she made us feel beyond comfortable and love the way we looked. She captures such ultra special moments and we truly loved every photo that came our way. My whole bridal party and family couldn't stop saying how magnificent she was; Christine made such a lasting impression on everyone.
On top of being so sweet and an amazing photographer, she went way above and beyond with some stunning gifts after our wedding. We couldn't believe it. She truly cares for her clients and we definitely plan on using her for family pictures in the future.
We adore you Christine!
From the moment I met Christine I knew me and my husband had made the right choice!! Not only did I fall in love with her beautiful work, but I knew this girl would be a life long friend!
She made every step and detail a piece of cake and was so thorough that I knew that when our wedding day came we wouldn’t have to worry about ONE THING.... and we didn’t!!
Our engagement shoot was my most favorite part of hiring her! She went above an beyond and literally hung out with us for an entire afternoon! She went with us to our favorite local bar and on a hike to find cactus, all just to make sure she provided us with what we hoped for!! I mean, what photographer sits at a bar and hangs with you while you eat hamburgers and drink cocktails and some how make it look like the most glamorous thing!??
But most of all, Christine provided us with the most beautiful pictures and memories of our wedding day and I can’t thank her enough!!
Do yourself a favor and hire her! She’s so genuine and such a kind hearted person and I keep trying to think of reasons to hire her again!!! ......... Its not weird to have another photoshoot at a bar just because is it?

Christine shot our wedding, and we could not be happier with how everything came out. From day one, she was always so warm, helpful, and professional. She checked in with us all throughout the planning process, and was so quick to answer any questions that we had. She truly does go above and beyond. Not only did she manage to get genuine smiles from my husband (who is not the biggest fan of getting his picture taken), but she just captured the day so perfectly from start to finish. All while wrangling together a wedding party of 25+ people. Every time I look at her photos, I am smiling from ear to ear because it takes me right back to each moment. So many people have reached out to me to say what an amazing job she did and how impressed they are by her work. We are so thankful for her, and her beautiful art that we get to treasure for a lifetime.
Christine is beyond talented and was able to truly capture the emotions of our wedding day in her photos. We really didn't want the cheesy style photos that seem forced. Christine describes her work as organic and that couldn't be further more true. Looking back at my wedding photos I feel like I am standing right there again just peeking back to the most incredible day. Hands down one of the most skilled and gifted wedding photographers I have ever come across!

Stop your photographer search NOW! You needn’t look any further because you’ve reached the page of a photo wizard.
Christine was recommended to us by close friends who had just booked her to do their engagement and wedding photos. I was hesitant about the photography process for our own wedding because I’m notoriously uncomfortable in front of the camera and can be extra critical of myself in photos. After learning that she was a local small business owner, and seeing the gorgeous pictures she had taken of our friends and countless others, I decided to bite the bullet, put my insecurities aside and book her for our wedding. After we booked our date we found out that she did a free engagement session, which is an amazing deal in comparison to some other photographers we looked at.
I had a lot of ideas about specific shots and locations for our engagement session, and Christine rolled with all of them! “You want to shoot in a record store? Not a problem, great idea!”, “You would like a copy cat photo of the Beatles Abby Road album cover? Fun! Let’s do it”, “Pictures of you guys in a hammock on Sunset Cliffs? I can do that, this is going to be fun”
let me just say folks, that Christine was about 8 1/2 months pregnant while we shot, she literally blocked traffic for those Abby Road pictures, and hiked around the cliffs with us to get good hammock pictures. When I said photo wizard, I should have also added badass. Christine Tustin -badass photo wizard.
she was enthusiastic and encouraging throughout our experience with her. We quickly adjusted to being in front of her camera and thoroughly enjoyed our time getting to know her. By the time our wedding rolled around last October, she was a welcomed friend and a brand new Mom. I come from what I’ll call a vary “modern” family. Christine heard what I had to say about some of the strained dynamics and not only didn’t bat an eyelash, but also navigated the people and the pace of the day beautifully. She was able to corral our band of crazies for a HUGE family group photo with patience and ease. We have the most beautiful photos from both our wedding and engagement shoot, I know without a doubt that that’s all due to the fact that we were lucky enough to have been referred to Christine. Her eye can only be match by her amazingly sparkly attitude. She loves what she does and it really shows. If my husband and I are blessed enough to become parents in the future, we already know we’re going to call on our friend Christine to deliver beautiful family photos, because that’s what she does, she delivers the goods. Do yourself a favor and contact her, you won’t regret it. She’s a keeper.
Christine is incredible!! I found out about Christine through a friend who had just gotten their family photos taken. The day that friend got her photos back she said, "You have to book her!". I met with Christine the next day and immediately knew I wanted her to shoot our engagement pics & wedding. She is so sweet and friendly and of course, talented! It didn't hurt that we both lived in the same beach town and bonded over that :) Taking the engagement pictures can be a bit awkward but she made us feel so comfortable... just like we were hanging out with a friend! I was so impressed with Christine that I referred her to do THREE of my best friends weddings, and she rocked those as well! I adore this woman and admire her work! Thank you so much, Christine!
Thanks guys, now I’m crying.
