Christi has been photographing weddings for more than 7 years, and still gets a little teary-eyed during the ceremony and first dance. At each wedding, her goal is to capture the personality and emotions of every bride, groom, and their loved ones.
In addition to her passion for photographing people, Christi has nearly 20 years of marketing and graphic design experience, which has proved invaluable in photo editing and designing original wedding albums.
Getting to know each client's personal style is very important to Christi, and her new role as Photography Manager will give her that opportunity. Using the new photography package additions, she will work with couples to preserve the perfect memory of their Peppermill wedding day!
