BARRY & SARAH CHRIST (PHOTOGRAPHERS/OWNERS)
We are a husband and wife team. We love working together and make a great pair. We have been working together for 3 years. I tend to be the soft spoken one and he helps me get everyone in order. We have two beautiful children and have been married for 8 years. Our marriage and lives are based on a relationship with Jesus Christ and we love capturing the special moments God has given to us!
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY?
“I started really having a passion for photography in high school. We went on a lot of great family vacations as a teenager and I wanted to document them. Especially being a mom now, I want to capture all the moments in my children’s lives so they can someday share them with their kids.” ~ Sarah
“Being married to a photographer I had no choice! When you are around something for so long you become accustom to it.” ~ Barry
WHAT’S YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH PHOTOGRAPHY?
“I started off taking photos with my Canon Rebel 35mm film camera in high school, I taught myself a lot of techniques. I loved graphic design as well so I enrolled in the local Career & Technical School where I furthered my education in photography and design. I started my business just a few years ago and have learned so much from other photographers, YouTube and books. Every day I learn something
new!” ~ Sarah
“Seeing my wife leave weekend after weekend to shoot weddings grew tiresome and I grew lonely. So I figured that the only way to see her more is to learn how to use the camera. To be honest it didn’t take too long. Call me a fast learner. Please go on and call me that. Once my wife saw that I was able to pick it up so fast she asked me to join her team. By learning the camera and a natural ability to converse with clients Sarah and I have been a great fit! ~ Barry
WHY DO YOU LOVE TAKING PHOTOS?
“I love capturing the details on a wedding day…the smiles of children…the laughter of a family playing together. I love the friendships that are made. Barry and I become almost instant friends with families or bride and grooms. It’s so neat to see the families grow too. I also love photographing weddings and being able to join in the celebration of a couples most important day!” ~ Sarah
“The instant gratification that is a direct result of capturing a moment is such a rush. I love the ability to lock events in time through my camera. Marriage is a important covenant to me, I always enjoy seeing the love between a new bride and groom. It is a breath of fresh air!” ~ Barry
