(without the "h")

hey! I'm Cristina,

 I'm twenty-something-years-old and 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. 

5 years ago, my soon-to-be hubby and I bought an old house built in 1880 and we have been renovating and updating it ever since. Definitely a labor of love, but I can't shake the high of a good homestead transformation!

After 7 years of holding the girlfriend title,  I said "yes" and I have LOVED planning and being on the "other side" of this whole wedding thing! 

I take my coffee cold (year-round) with cream, sugar and a shot of espresso, and I prefer sour gummy candy over chocolate any day.

my go-to girl when it comes to photo management! Staci handles and sorts through all of the photos to ensure they are in tip-top shape for delivery!

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!

The "oG" of CFP! my professor, turned mentor, turned right-hand-man! Greg has taught me everything i know about photography!
