During my senior year of high school, in between the minor meltdowns of trying to figure out what the hell I was going to do with my life, I picked up a camera and started hosting "photoshoots" with my friends - America's Next Top Model style. We'd pick out outfits, do hair and makeup, and scout out locations, before spending hours getting the perfect shots. Aside from my friends having great new Facebook profile photos, I didn't think my new hobby was really going anywhere, until it did.... 
 

hey,

next

(without the "H")

I'm Cristina

and then...

With the power and beauty of social media, my friend's new social media content caught the attention of real paying clients. With the fear of potentially being stuck in a cubical for the rest of my life, and a serious need for gas money for that upcoming weekend, Cristina Fenner Photography was born. It's been a wild ride, and sometimes I still can't believe it, but I couldn't imagine doing anything else!


 

 I'm a twenty-something-year-old wedding photographer, educator and sometimes, a wanna-be wedding planner. I live happily out in the middle of nowhere, in a small town in Upstate New York, with my family,
3 dogs and a few ducks. 

I take my coffee cold (year-round) with cream, sugar and a shot of espresso. I prefer chicken nuggets over a burger and sour gummy candy over chocolate
any day. There is no shame in my Netflix game,
binge-watching  anything from Judge Judy, to
The Simpsons, to weird alien conspiracy shows. 

 I can't wait to get to know each other!

With an infectious laugh, ashley is sure to keep you smiling throughout your entire wedding. With an eye for detail and never being afraid to jump in, this girl is no joke when it comes to weddings!
