Cristina is too wonderful for words! She is an absolute joy to work with and her photos are beyond stunning. Neither my husband nor I have any idea what we’re doing in front of a camera, and Cristina could not have been kinder or more patient with us during both our engagement photos and wedding day. We brought along our dog for our engagement photos, and Cristina never batted an eye during his less-than-cooperative moments. She made the engagement photo session a complete breeze and so much fun from start to finish. Her partner, Constantin, joined for the wedding day, and they made the most incredible photography duo. They captured all the important moments and ensured that we got every last photo we wanted. They also handled corralling everyone for large family photos in an extremely timely and orderly fashion. They’re both so lovely, fun to work with, and take the most incredibly beautiful photos! I could not recommend Cristina (and Constantin!) more highly.
I cannot say enough about Cristina G! We were very picky about finding the perfect photographer and after looking through Cristina's photos and talking with her on the phone our search was over! On the day of our wedding, it was freezing cold and pouring down rain, but Cristina and her team captured every moment beautifully. Especially given the crazy conditions, Cristina was super laid back and kept us calm as she rolled with the punches. We were worried about how this may impact our photos, but honestly they came out better than we could have ever imagined. If I could rate her work on a 10-point scale, I'd give her a 15! She's such a lovely person and her work is second to none! Any couple who chooses Cristina G will not regret it!
OBSESSED! From beginning to end Cristina G was so helpful, professional and easy to communicate with. Being an out of state bride, she was able to meet with us twice before the wedding with our short window of being in town. Her partner Constantine was amazing as well. A highlight that I loved was the evening champagne popping pics. So good! I'm honestly in love with so many pictures that I still can't choose all the ones I want hanging in my home. There are too many options, a great problem to have! I would also highly recommend getting one of the albums she offers, it is absolutely stunning and the quality is impeccable. So glad we did that! Do yourself a favor and hire Cristina G for your wedding! You won't regret it!
Cristina and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with. When we requested to get photos at the place we met—Wrigley Field—on a game day, she leaned in and embraced the whole experience to get us 100s of amazing shots in our special place. You know someone care about their clients and the work when midway through our session, we looked over at Cristina smiling ear to ear looking through her photos with excitement over the shots. We just got our wedding photos back, and I can barely narrow them down. Cristina and Constantin really captured the joy of our weekend . . . each photo brought back a flood of memories. They also captured some beautiful artistic shots, straight out of an editorial shoot. We truly felt like she understood "us" and translated that through her creative, kind, and uber talented lens.
We are so happy we decided to go with Cristina G Photography for our wedding. What we loved most about Cristina is her patience and willingness to do whatever it took to get the best photos for our special day. We found her style to be the perfect mix of posed photos and candid photos. When it came to the posed photos, her attention to detail was impeccable. She looked at every detail as she was taking the photo - from the bride's hair & position of her engagement ring to how the groom was standing. Since we did not have a wedding planner, Cristina worked with us directly on our day of schedule and she was spot on with all of the recommended times she suggested for our schedule. On the day of our wedding, there were multiple wedding parties trying to shoot at the same location. Cristina was extremely flexible and creative to navigate taking photos on a busy summer wedding day in Chicago! We LOVED all of our photos and have received so many compliments on how beautiful they turned out. Thank you, Cristina G Photo, for capturing our special day!!
Cristina and Constantin are a DREAM! Choosing the right photographer was so critical to us as we knew these photographs were how we would reflect on our big day. Once we saw Cristina's portfolio, we were hooked and knew we had to have them! Not only are they the sweetest, but they were so attentive to the bridal party as well as our family and friends. Their experience and expertise made our day so seamless and comfortable! From fanning out my dress and veil, to suit adjusting and hair fluffing, these two really do it all to make sure that every shot is perfect. Since the day we received our photos, we have not stopped staring at them! They make us laugh and cry the happiest tears as we are reliving some of the happiest moments of our lives. The way that Cristina and Constantin captured the most candid moments is something we will truly cherish forever!! These two will always hold a special place in our hearts and we would recommend them over and over again!
In a sea of downtown Chicago classic white nuptials, this Westmoreland Country Club wedding is a breath of fresh air and the perfect exception to the rule.More
