Our home base is Chicago and it offers such an exquisite backdrop for our pictures! With a background in architectural photography, we love nothing more than to incorporate the beautiful, classic Chicago architecture into the images we create for our wedding clients.
Our style is timeless. Our goal is a beautifully documented love story with lots of candids, organic, effortless portraits that capture your personalies, classic family formals and a few epic shots for good measure.
Cristina and Constantin are the duo behind Cristina G Photography as owners and principal photographers. Julie is our trusted associate photographer and has been with the company since 2010. As a team, we've been photographing weddings together for 10 years. 350+ weddings and countless beautiful images. We have a seamless, unspoken connection. We are each other’s doubles. I believe this is key in achieving true wedding photojournalistic coverage. From our emotional getting ready photos, to our breathtaking nighttime portraits, your wedding will be photographed just the way you imagined it.
The morning after your big day, there is just one wedding purchase left that has yet to be delivered. Your pictures. The only purchase that will, in time, become more valuable. The only purchase that you will get to enjoy for more than just one day. These are the memories you will cherish for a lifetime. Your wedding album is a family heirloom. A treasured possession for you and even more so for the generations to come. We do not take this responsibility lightly and are so very honored to be trusted to tell your story. We offer a variety of collections to choose from (starting at $4,500). Elopements starting at $1,500. Please inquire for detailed pricing.
Creating amazing nightshots in the rain or snow is the ultimate jackpot for us. The way the light catches the beads of precipitation is pure magic and I wanted to create a similar feeling that could be executed on demand vs. hoping for poor weather. Plenty of time was spent contemplating on this, until one day, while popping a bottle of champs, it hit me. No pun intended. A celebratory champagne spray at the end of the evening would be the perfect way to make it rain for an epic nightshot! The first nighttime champs spray ever was captured in the summer of 2014. Since then it has become quite the trend with many couples requesting it from their photographers in Chicago and beyond. Alas, I am the OG and nobody does it better than me!
