Born and raised in a little town on Long Island, I moved here to Atlanta in my teens. My love of photography started when I took one film class in high school, learning to develop and print my own black and white film. It was a hobby for a long, long time, when I was asked to photograph a wedding for a friend of a friend. That was the beginning, and all that it took for me to fall in love with photography.

Since then, I have been photographing love of all kinds, colors, shapes, and sizes. Film photography is my love and joy, and it is my goal to create something so beautiful and so timeless, that you get to cherish it forever. There is something so special, and so perfect about actually being able to hold your prints, and part of the reason why I am so passionate about it, and why I gift all of my clients with prints.

I love to become friends with my clients and foster a relationship that allows me to really get to know your hearts, your love, and your vision.

What exactly is "fine art photography"?

Fine art photography has really become a title and phrase that allows me to express what I try to create for my couples. An artful capture of the most important day of their lives.

It is a blurring of the lines of photojournalism, documentary capture, and art.

...the camera need not be a cold mechanical device. Like the pen, it is as good as the man who uses it. It can be the extension of mind and heart..."
— John Steinbeck

About me

A few things about me:


I live outside of Atlanta, but my heart is still on Long Island where I was born and raised

I'm a mom to two amazing little boys & a wife to my once in a lifetime love

I love florals. I have always said that if I was not a photographer, I would be a florist

I love travel and new places. It is my goal to visit some amazing far away places from my dreams this year

I work with some amazing vendors and fellow creatives in the wedding industry, so if you need some superstar talent, let me know

It sounds cliche, but coffee helps me survive the day (especially while chasing around aforementioned babies)




I really hope to create some art for you. Bespoke and heirloom prints and keepsakes to keep you smiling and feeling what you felt that special day for years to come. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at chat@christa-obrien.com
