Introduction: Hey there! My name is Christina Chapman, and my husband, John, is here with me. He also happens to be my second shooter. That’s right! We’re a husband-and-wife photography team based in Fredericksburg VA. We serve couples from North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Florida, and even offer our services for destination weddings. We’re here to support you on the day you become married to the person of your dreams! A little background: I have always loved photography. Even as a little girl, I was drawn to photos. Many years ago, my parents bought my first camera—a pink Polaroid! I adored that camera, but I never imagined it would start a love affair with photography that is still going strong today. But today, John and I want to tell you about a different love affair—ours. We met four years ago at the bank where I worked. I bought my coworker lunch so that I could help him, even though he was in her line—he was so cute! The next week he called me and asked to thank me in person for my help, and I knew it was a date. We laugh now because he says it sounded like I was about to jump through the phone with excitement. Let me let you on a secret: I was! John brought me homemade blackberry cobbler on our first date, which he made himself! I was smitten. When I introduced him to my son, Noah, and saw them together, I knew John was the man of my dreams. He proposed two years later at the same restaurant where he brought me that blackberry cobbler, down on one knee like the southern gentleman he is. Our wedding day was everything I wanted it to be. Now, as a husband-and-wife photography team, we do everything in our power to create that same experience for our couples. What’s your love story? I can’t wait to hear it! Christina's Favs!! Pink! Pink is a weakness! I am hopelessly drawn to anything pink! Coffee! I am seriously addicted to coffee! The taste, the smell it is simply wonderfulness in a cup! Baking! I love to bake! Pies are my second creative love! I know what you’re thinking… coffee and pies, no wonder she’s so happy! Documentaries! This is definitely a well-kept secret but I am a lover of facts and history! Makeup! My makeup collection makes my heart happy. If you are making a run to Sephora count me in! John's Favs!! College Football! Nothing beats a college tailgate or sitting in front of the big screen on Saturday! and GO HOKIES!! Technology! From Star Trek to iRobot, I love the imagination of what could or will be in our future! Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough! FROZEN ... Let's sneak a little ball of goodness for a midnight snack! Golf! I hate this game ... is what I usually say while laughing wildly while some of my favorite little white balls are splashing into the lake! Father-Son Projects! Teaching my son how to nail, build, paint, and sand, watching him learn and have fun just makes my pride swell!

Boudoir Photography

Today I had my boudoir session with mrs Christina. She is amazing. Christina takes the time to get to know you and to help you get comfortable and confident, in photos and in real life. She is warm and inviting. She has an eye for details and captures the scene and client beautifully. I am very excited to see my final photos and I will definitely use mrs Christina's services in the future!

Wedding and Event Photography

Christina is AWESOME. Words cannot describe just how great she is to work with. She did our wedding photography and engagement session and did such a phenomenal job. The pictures were so beautiful and great, and she has such an amazing personality that just made everything so easy for us. She was able to pose us so well and was so thoughtful and considerate about all of it. John is incredible and they make such a fantastic team. They both have such amazing talents and personalities that they were so fun to work with! The day after the wedding, everyone (bridal party, families, etc) kept asking who our photographer was because they were just that AWESOME - keep in mind this was even before we got our pictures back! That’s just a testament to how amazing their work is - the pictures are beautiful but they were just such a joy. You just know that you are getting high quality photos with Christina. They were our most trusted vendors and it was such an honor to work with them! I would give them a million stars if I could!

Portrait Photography

Best experience I have ever had! Christina has a true gift of not only taking amazing photos, but making you comfortable during the process. I have extreme anxiety when it comes to photos, but Christina put me at ease almost immediately. I cannot say enough kind things about the experience. They are the best photos I have ever had taken. They are even better than my wedding photos!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After contact is made through thumbtack or email I prefer to setup a phone or face to face interview. This is an important process for me and my client. During this interview my client is able to make sure I'm a good fit for their event. I am able to answer any questions or concerns and get a clear understanding of my clients expectations.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    A mother, wife, photographer and lover of dark coffee! I have always loved photography! Even as a little girl I was drawn to photos. Many years ago my parents bought my first camera… a pink Polaroid! Yes! I adored that camera! I carried it everywhere shaking out the film to expose my early art work! I never imagined that camera would start a love affair with photography that is still going strong today! Over the years I have fine tuned my art into something that brings happiness not only to my client but myself as well. I didn’t set out to be a photographer but somehow it just happened! So goes the old saying “your heart will lead you home” I am so grateful that this is what I get to call my career!
