About Christie Heimbach Photography

Christie Heimbach Photography

Photographer

Hey there! I'm a PA/NJ based photographer with over 200 incredible weddings under my belt. I've always loved documenting stories (I was an actor and an English teacher before venturing into photography), and the challenge of ensuring your personal story gets told in an emotive and authentic way is exhilarating to me. My team and I take pride in our desire to show up on your day as your personal confidence curators, and believe that in order to get the best imagery, you need to feel relaxed, empowered, and in the moment. Everything we do within our structure is to get you to that space so you can walk away with photos you'll treasure forever.

We create safe spaces for our clients to have a photo experience. Our process is designed to capture raw, authentic, candid imagery that enhances connection and eases the stress of a wedding day. We'll be your cheerleaders from start to finish- building the relationship, keeping details organized, mentoring you through the timeline, while having phenomenal customer service the whole way through which makes us feel more like friends than vendors. On top of that, our dark but vibrant editing magnifies the emotions in our photos so friends and family can truly relive each moment and feel like they're stepping into your celebration once more.

Starting at $590. My "Date Night Adventure" sessions are to help you do just that. You'll fill out a survey describing a bit about who you are and what you like to do, and I'll plan a massively exciting date. You'll get to enjoy a spontaneous day/night out (food and an activity) while I discreetly capture your relationship in photos that you will treasure forever.

Starting at $290. Lifestyle sessions are meant to capture families, seniors, and couples in their element. Whether hiking outdoors, baking cookies and playing games in the comfort of their home, or taking a day trip to a favorite coffee shop, I'll be there to capture grandma's new favorite photo, a new canvas for the wall, or the social media post of the year. Sessions range from half an hour to two hours, and are carefully curated to fit the desires of the client.

    Christie and her team truly captured our perfect day. The team was amazing for creative content, as well as capturing our vision. They did amazing with our two pups and even got in the freezing cold ocean with us at the end of the night. Me and my now husband, felt extremely comfortable and relaxed through the entire process. I would recommend Christie and her team to anyone getting married and looking for photos in the NJ/PA/MD area. Everyone says how extraordinary our pictures turned out. We were also one of the first couples to have Jade record and create our video. Although we haven’t received the final product yet, Jade’s shots caught an authentic view of our relationship and day. We have no doubts of the amazing video we will cherish forever!

    Christie is an absolute gem of a person, SUCH a talented and creative photographer and a total breath of fresh air amidst all the many nerve-racking elements of planning and executing a wedding. When I initially reached out and learned she split her time between Lancaster and New Jersey, it felt like a match made in heaven for my husband and me (Philly residents planning a Lancaster-area wedding). Her excitement at the prospect of being our photographer was palpable in a way that actually felt genuine, and we were so relieved that she was available for our date. After booking her for our wedding (and leveraging her great local vendor recs), she gladly met us at our favorite nature preserve near Philly and made our complimentary engagement shoot a fun and relaxed experience, returning woodsy photos that felt true to us: two lowkey, reserved-but-goofy-once-you-get-to-know-us people who had never been professionally photographed. Her laid-back yet professional energy continued through the months leading up to our wedding. As someone who's very detail oriented, I really appreciated her attention in helping us create the best schedule to accommodate our large wedding party and make sure we got all the kinds of photos we most wanted while being the most present with our loved ones. Of all the vendors we'd taken the leap of faith to book, I felt the most totally confident in her abilities and knew that she would have our back through it all. When our wedding day ended up being graced with the luck of hurricane-level wind and rains, she helped me stay calm and positive and stick to the plan as well as possible, expertly switching gears where needed to make it all happen and keep the day on schedule. As promised, she showed up ready for anything in her umbrella hat, and she got so many absolutely gorgeous photos of us in the rain underneath (and throwing to the side) our clear umbrellas. When it cleared up later in the day, we got more of the outdoor scenes we were hoping for and some great reception sparkler shots, too. She truly captured all the emotion and love we felt on that day, from the dad/daughter and bride/groom first looks to the "I dos" and cake cutting to the first dances -- all the tears and the smiles and everything in between. One of the most iconic shots and a favorite of ours required her to run across the wet, muddy property while we stood on a bridge -- her dedication and artistic vision are simply unparalleled. (She was also great at coraling and guiding our family members and aforementioned large wedding party for group photos in the midst of the inclement weather!) Her turnaround time was impressive for both the sneak peak and the full gallery (800 photos!), even as she was busy getting married herself. My maid of honor commented that even she has no idea when or how we managed to take all of the glorious photos we did, to which I say: Christie's husband may be the official magician, but I firmly believe she is one, too! From the excited initial correspondence over a year out from our September 2023 wedding to the very thoughtful wrap-up email she sent a few weeks ago, the amount of time and energy she dedicates to each client paired with all of the above puts her in a league of her own. Absolutely 1000% recommend booking her far in advance to be sure you are in the greatest of hands for capturing your special moments!

    Booking Christie and her team for your wedding is going to be the best decision you make! From our initial consult, to the easy planning sessions, to the wedding day, Christie was a joy to work with. Honestly, it was just great getting to hang out with her pre-ceremony. This girl is literally so cool! My wedding day was VERY windy, but the way she used the wind to make dynamic beautiful pictures made the 35mph gust worth it. On top of that, my fiancé and I are quite shy, but she really made the photo shoots a lot of fun. She had great prompts to make the photos seem candid and made everyone feel comfortable. I LOVE the mix of styles of photos we received in our collection. Some of the more artistic photos ended up being my absolute favorites. Thank you for capturing our beautiful day!!
