I would love for you to see a sample! Starting at just $499.
I also offer professional prints in all sizes, canvas gallery wraps, artistry shaped prints, and custom designed save the date and thank you cards. This additional service sets us apart from other great photographers.
Thank you for taking the time to determine if we are a good fit for one another. I am honored to be considered for your special day. It's important for me to capture the essence your story, so anyone looking at the images can instantly know what it felt like to be there; the laughter, the tears, the overwhelming joy.
I take great pride in creating an atmosphere of friendship and am committed to creating images that you will treasure for the rest of your lives. Your experience is as important as the images we'll create together. I would LOVE to meet with you to review my portfolio, and sample wedding albums, and discuss your wedding photography needs. I want to hear about your love story, what is important to you, and what you want to remember 20 years from now.

What is the difference between a wedding and micro wedding?
1. To me, it’s all about capturing the mood of the day, the moments, and the awesome people in it as honestly and artistically as I can.
2. I believe that your wedding day should be joyful and relaxed. I will do everything in my power to make it so (my experience provides some very handy skills such as bustling dresses, pinning boutineers, and wrangling family members). I genuinely love weddings because of what they really stand for. Your marriage is what it’s all about!
3. Christina Johnson Photography will be here tomorrow too. I have been in business for 18 years because I treat my clients with honesty, respect, and fairness. It matters. I won't be on to another part-time gig next week. This is what I do full-time (and sometimes more).
4. I maintain a balance of being invisible while documenting moments and creating a relaxed environment when directing poses and mingling with your guests. My couples never notice (because they are doing important things like getting married), but, I am running around taking 1000+ images during the course of the day.
5. I am so grateful for my job. Many of my clients have become lifelong friends. Every time someone gives me a good review, a kind compliment, shares their photos, or provides a direct referral, I do a little happy dance. I am a small business in a sea of other small businesses, so my clients are my greatest asset. I’d love to document your life moments, before, during, and beyond your wedding day.
I am a FULL-SERVICE photographer providing assistance with your wedding day schedule, possible locations for photography, and even advice on wrangling unruly family members.
Every wedding experience includes a detailed checklist to get to the heart and soul of your wedding day dreams, a customized shot list, and a wedding day timeline.
Additionally, I can assist you with building your perfect wedding album, choosing your favorite images to enlarge or printing fabulous products. You’ll receive beautiful and unique images, but you’ll also have a magnificent experience.
Whatever you need, just ask! I'm your girl.
We find the perfect location during your receiving line, or at your reception, where we can capture professional images of each of your guests. We take the time to instruct your guests to write a beautiful personalized message in your guest book. Guestbook services include 30 minutes of additional coverage time.
You’ll receive the copyright release of all the guest images so that you can create a print of each of your guests to insert next to their personal message in your guest book. Many couples also include a copy of the photos with thank-you notes. Such a special touch!
All images will be edited for color, clarity, and contrast. If you would like additional edits, the charge is $25/hour. Any professional prints or products ordered will be perfected with our unique, artistic style.
We love to explore new venues and are available for domestic and international travel. Travel within a 20 mile radius of Little Falls, MN is included at no charge. Travel outside of this radius is determined on an individual basis. Please take us along on your destination wedding or elopement; we have our passport ready!
The Simple Collection comes complete with high resolution, art ready digital negatives to ALL your wedding day images and a copyright release so that you can select your own printing service and share on social media. There is no obligation to purchase anything further.
We do offer affordable professionally printed products, canvas gallery wraps, art shaped prints, save the date and holiday cards, and beautiful hand crafted wedding albums that you can easily order directly from your gallery.
This service sets us apart from other great photographers.
We publish an online gallery of all your images within one to two weeks from your wedding date.
You'll be able to download all of your high resolution images right from the gallery with the click of a button. If you, or family/friends, wish to order professional prints and products from us, this option is also available right from your gallery.
Plus, you can easily share your gallery to social media right from the site. Our clients love the ease and simplicity of our online gallery.
The difference is the size and scope of the wedding. Micro weddings are much smaller and more simplified. To determine which is right for you, ask yourself “What is meaningful to us? What elements are important in our wedding?” Each of you will have a different answer.
There are no right and wrong ways to have a wedding, only what is best for you.
For some, it’s having their friends and family come together to witness your wedding ceremony, eat, drink and dance. If this is what you’ve always dreamed of, review our Wedding and Engagement pricing (above). You’ll see our Simple Collection which can be tailored to meet your needs by adding optional extras to the Simple Collection if you would like.
For some, your wedding is about the two of you privately sharing vows, with just a few key friends and/or family members. Or you may have a limited budget, a short period of time to plan, a busy schedule, an adventurous spirit or just don’t want a large wedding.
If this is more your style or situation, review our All-Inclusive Micro Weddings pricing on the next tab.. You’ll see our Micro Collection which includes photography and a custom ceremony with an ordained officiant. You can add optional items to complete your day and make it all you've ever dreamed of.
