Christine is an award-winning photojournalist and LGBTQ-inclusive wedding photographer in Massachusetts living on Cape Cod with her wife, Steph; lovable lab, Hunter; mischievous feline, LeRoi; adorable fluffy kitty princess, Raye; and wildly energetic rescue puppy, Toby. When she's not taking pictures, she's riding her road bike, brewing coffee, tending to her beloved house plants or cooking an overly complicated meal. Christine and Steph are Sandy Neckers and spend most summer weekends on the ORV trail grilling by the bonfire.
Christine has over 18 years of experience shooting weddings and has been a staff photographer for publications such as the Worcester Telegram & Gazette and Cape Cod Times, as well as a contributor to The Boston Globe.
