Capturing love through emotive imagery
 in Southern California and beyond

My love for capturing genuine emotion and connection led me to found Whole Heart Photography in 2015.

I love Love. From intimate elopements to elaborate celebrations, my couples tend to have a few things in common. They don't take themselves too seriously, live for the candids and moments of laughter, and plan weddings full of details that reflect their personality and unique style.

When not behind the camera you can find me chasing after my two wild children, drinking too much coffee, and enjoying San Diego.

Hi, I'm Christie!

The Stories I Tell

"I wanted our photos to be
         and not look
 rehearsed...and Christie made that happen with her



We love you! How do we book?

Awww, I love you too. First get in touch via my contact page so I can confirm my availability. Next we will schedule a zoom call to get to know each other and find out which package works the best for your elopement/wedding day. Afterwards I’ll send you a contract to digitally sign and pay a deposit.

how far in advance should we book?

That depends- If you have a specific date you’re set on you should reach out as soon as you know it so I can verify if i’m available. Most couples book 9- 12 months in advance, but if you’re itching to elope just reach out- I can often make something work.

will you help us plan?

OMG yes. I love being involved in the planning. You can ask me anything and I’m happy to give advice or brainstorm together. At the very minimum we will go through your timeline together as it’s an essential part of the day and we want to get it right.

when do you charge travel fees?

 Travel fees are charged outside of Southern California and vary by location. Just ask if you have questions! 

how many photos will i receive?

Every day is different, but your online gallery will typically contain 50-75 photos per hour of coverage. 

what if I have more questions?

reach out to me via my contact page and I'm happy to answer all of your questions!!
