I am Christie!
A 25 year old, cocker spaniel dog mom & workaholic born and raised in Banff, Scotland. Growing up in such a beautiful coastal town surrounded by the most stunning scenery, it was only a matter of time before I picked up a camera and started documenting the world around me. I've had a passion for photography for as long as I can remember, a camera was always on my Santa list!
Over ten years of experience.
My journey began in 2013 when I set up my wee Facebook page to share my work with friends, family & people in my local community. It's been so rewarding watching it grow over the last nine years, but also crazy to look back on being an ambitious little fifteen year old. I threw myself in the deep end & did my first wedding at sixteen & knew from then on weddings were what I wanted to focus on most. It really is the most exciting job ever!
I have the worlds coolest job. Fact.
No single working day is the same. Every day I meet new people, see new places & photograph new things! I count myself so lucky to have such an exciting job that fills me with all sorts of different emotions on a daily basis. At weddings you'll usually catch me with a huge smile on my face when I see my brides coming down the aisle, getting goosebumps at the beautiful images I am creating & tearing up at touching speeches! Building a bond with my brides and grooms is a must & it's so lovely to catch up with them after the wedding madness is over as well. I've made so many friends through this amazing career and wouldn't change it for anything!
I worked at a nursery too!
I LOVE working with kids. They are the most funny, brutally honest & cutest creatures on the planet. I started working at a nursery six years ago part time & it helped me grow so much in my photography career. Being the baby of my family, little people were like aliens to me! The nursery taught me how to make my younger subjects feel comfortable around me from the get go, how to speak to them and what makes them laugh. There is nothing better than capturing a genuine smile.
