“Christina was a phenomenal photographer and was able to not only capture our wedding perfectly, but also our relationship. First of all, we LOVED working with her as she was easy going and really made us feel relaxed the first time we met her. We took wedding pictures before the ceremony, which was absolutely the best idea and not one I would have thought of without Christina bringing it up as a possibility.

The photographs turned out amazing and our family and friends love them, as well as the wedding albums which look incredible. Christina was integral in helping us capture our wedding day and we are so pleased with the photographs. We would not have done a thing differently and we are definitely recommending her to friends and family with upcoming weddings!”

“Amazing!!! Choosing Christina as my photographer was one of the best decisions I made when planning my wedding! Pictures were my number one priority and I would recommend Christina to every bride! She was recommended to me by our venue coordinator and after meeting her and seeing how own to earth and easy to be around she was I knew right away I wanted her to be our photographer. She asked us questions and I felt like it was important to her to get to know us a little bit. I can be picky (gasp) and I loved our pictures as they are exactly what I wanted, actually they are better. She told us to move this way or that way to get a great shot, but would also allow us our sweet sentimental moments. In one of the reviews I read it said that she wasn’t intrusive and at times you didn’t know she was there which was important to my fiancé as he didn’t want photographers with big cameras interrupting the flow of the day. She was perfect because during the ceremony I didn’t even know she was there. :)

The morning of the wedding Christina came to my hotel while I was getting ready and jumped right in and started taking pictures. We did a first look with just my fiancé and I and Christina and her assistant which was a great moment. We had a big crazy bridal party and she definitely helped with the flow of the day and keeping us on track with time etc. Furthermore, we got a picture of our big group under the goal post in front of our venue and Christina laid in the street – literally in the gutter – to get the picture! What a great shot! Christina and her assistant are friendly, professional and easy to be around. Most of all my pictures are stunning and everyone has just raved about them and Christina. I would chose her again in a heartbeat!”

“Christina Montemurro is an absolutely WONDERFUL photographer! First off, she was amazing to work with from start to finish! She is extremely knowledgeable about photography, and is a great resource for information about the wedding industry in Pittsburgh. She gave recommendations on florists, djs, and videographers. Well, we ended up choosing every single one of her recommendations. We truly had the dream team of vendors all thanks to Christina! Christina really takes the time to get to know you as an individual AND as a couple! This is then portrayed in the amazing photos that she takes!

Also my fiancé REALLY wanted a picture at sunset for our engagement photos, but the sky wasn’t cooperating for the most part. While we were on our way back to our meeting spot Christina noticed that the sun was coming through and lighting up the sky for a completely beautiful sunset. Since my fiancé wanted this specific shot instead of calling it quits and going home, Christina asked if we could change the plans a bit, head to Schenley Park, and get that sunset photo because my fiancé really wanted it! This is just a small example of Christina’s work ethic – She goes ABOVE AND BEYOND all of the time! Her work is GORGEOUS!”

“Wedding photography, in my opinion is one of the most important things you’ll spend your money on because your pictures are what you have to show for your day when it is over. Hence Christina is an excellent choice. She is always very professional and prompt in her responses and is easily accessible for questions. Since she is very responsible she is always in touch with you for details about your wedding day which is very helpful, since the last few weeks beforehand can get very busy! Most of all on the actual wedding day, she is working hard, from start to finish. We had a list of specific photos we wanted (formal) and Christina had a game plan for them ahead of time with a mix of artistic shots and formal photos.

She has experience throughout the whole Pittsburgh area, and has been to many venues which allows her to offer suggestions on where to get the best shots. As a result of her photographing weddings in the Pittsburgh area for several years, she is familiar with many of the vendors, which can be helpful on the wedding day. When we told our venue who our photographer was, and they replied, “Great choice — she does a wonderful job!” it was very reassuring. After the wedding, she puts up a preview of the pictures on her blog, this was a great way to see some of our pictures within the week of the wedding. We shared these with family and friends, many who commented that they were the most professional, beautiful wedding photographs they’ve ever seen. Also she is very fair and reasonable in her pricing. 

Lastly, when picking out our photo album, she is very modern in her approach with an iPad  to quickly show us options from the album vendors (specifically for album cover layouts). She had many in-person examples of albums as well! Without a doubt, hiring Christina as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. If you are thinking about hiring her, just do it. You won’t regret it, and you’ll have beautiful pictures to show!!”

Katie & Chris

“Firstly, we can’t say enough good things about Christina. She is fantastic to work with. Since we currently live in Virginia, we had to do most of our discussions and details over the phone, but I knew that she had it under control. We did an engagement session with her as well and were very happy. For the wedding, the online tools that she has were great – as a result it was so easy to communicate with her and list family members for photos so that it was organized. On our actual wedding day, Christina and her assistant were so great and organized with our “first look” photos, bridal party and family photos. Everything was seamless! Furthermore, they both captured our day beautifully and were discrete during the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Finally, she put up a “teaser” blog of a few photos before we even left for our honeymoon and she had posted and sent out all of our proofs less than a month after the wedding! Overall, Christina is fantastic and is a sure bet for your wedding photographer!!!!”
