When we were planning our wedding, I did not have a lot of "must-haves."  The exception to this, was that I HAD to have Cristina as my photographer.  I had seen her work before and knew that she would be the one that would capture my day in the best way.  She completely exceeded my expectations and I could not be happier with our choice to have her as our photographer.

From day 1, Cristina made us feel like we were family and that she was going to treat our wedding as such.  She took a lot of time, both in person and over the phone, to go over our vision and to ensure the moments that were most important to us were captured.

One of the things that I appreciated the most about Cristina's planning process is that she provided us with a questionnaire several weeks before our wedding day and asked us details about our wedding vendors but, more importantly, she asked us to provide her with the names of our family members (we did not have a bridal party) and to specify what group photos we wanted.  The reason this stood out to me so much is that I felt like it was a great way for my husband and I to put some time and thought over the pictures we wanted.  I have friends and family who were so disappointed when they got married because they forgot to tell their photographer on the wedding day to make sure a certain picture was taken.  Because we were able to plan, this took all of that stress off of us on the wedding day.

On the wedding day, Cristina took charge and was able to move everything along in a timely manner.  Anyone that has been in a wedding or has attempted to take large group pictures know how difficult that is to do, but Cristina make it look easy!

Not only does Cristina's work speak for itself, but she is a fantastic person.  We loved having her with us on our wedding day, and you could tell that she was invested in us and wanted to provide us with the best experience.  Our pictures and our album completely blew us away.  We have so many friends who have told us that our pictures look like they belong in a magazine because of how beautifully Cristina took them and the vision she put together for each one.  We are so grateful for these memories and we have Cristina to thank for that!

I would also like to mention that we had a reception with a lot of our family and friends the night before the wedding and we had Cristina's associate, Konstantin, capture the night.  He also was with Cristina on our wedding day.  Konstantin was absolutely fantastic!  He was the only person who could get my 7 month old niece to smile in pictures.  More importantly, he made sure to discuss with me what pictures we wanted before the night started, and he consulted with family members throughout the night about what other pictures to capture because he did not want to bother my husband or I.  He was an absolute pleasure to work with and we felt so lucky that we had the opportunity to work with him.

Cristina G Photography was absolutely amazing! She helped to guide my now husband and I on where we should take our pictures and how long everything would take. I loved all my pictures so much that I wanted more! She's incredible and perfectly captured our day. Any Brides-to-be out there reading this...look no further! Cristina G Photography and her team were so amazing. I wish I could hire her for more events in my life!

My husband and I booked Cristina G Photography for our February 2019 wedding and could not be happier with our decision! When we first walked into Cristina’s studio, we knew we were exactly where we were meant to be. From the moment we sat down and began describing our wedding photography visions, to reflecting back on our day while looking through our photos, Cristina and her team were the perfect choice who made all of our dreams come to life! We had a 30 person wedding party, yes- 15 bridesmaids and 15 groomsmen, and requested an 80+ person family photo at church-- it was no sweat to Cristina! She was patient, took charge, gave direction and made sure all of our photos were something we will cherish for the rest of our lives. After receiving our wedding album this past week, we could not be more “in awe” of the quality of the album. Classy, elegant, stunning. A staple we are SO proud to display in our home. Cristina’s work is spectacular and we are forever grateful that we chose her to capture our wedding day! We look forward to working together in the many more exciting chapter of life and will continue referring her to our family and friends looking to hire the perfect photographer! Thank you, Cristina! You are one in a million!!

I cannot say enough good things about Cristina G Photography! I had seen Cristina G tagged in several posts on Instagram by wedding professionals and thought "Wow" what beautiful pictures. When my parents and I began our search for photographers for my wedding, I knew we need to inquire. From our first email correspondence, Cristina was so excited and friendly, which was so pleasant compared to others we had reached out to as well. My parents and I requested to meet with her in person to discuss what are vision and hopes were regarding wedding photography. The minute we stepped into her adorable studio and poured us champagne, we knew we had to go with her. It was by far one of the BEST decisions we made. Throughout the entire wedding planning process, Cristina always maintained her cheerful and positive attitude. When my fiance and I were taking our engagement photos, we were so nervous because of how awkward we felt they would be. Cristina made us feel so comfortable and offered the best direction. Fast forward to our wedding and again was such a calm, friendly presence. She was never aggressive in trying to get photos but felt like we had a friend taking them. Once we received our album after the wedding, we were STUNNED! They were so beautiful and every person has complimented us and the amazing shots she was able to capture. I would recommend her to ANYONE getting married in Chicago!! I can assure you, you will not regret it!! I only wish we could do it all over again :)

The photos will be a treasured keepsake of ours for the rest of our lives.

Cristina and Konstantin 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 tentative 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 Konstantin 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!

Cristina was the first vendor I hired as I quickly fell in love with her timeless and chic portfolio. She was incredibly reliable and easy to work with throughout the entire planning process, and so helpful during the postponement of our large wedding. We were lucky enough to be able to have a small family-only ceremony on our original date, and the photos that Cristina captured truly embodied what an intimate and beautiful day it was. We cannot wait to have Cristina photograph our large wedding this Spring!

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 Konstantin 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!!
