Meet Christin


Hello, I’m Christin and it’s so nice to meet you! Thank you for stopping by! I’d love to tell you a little bit about my background and what I offer.

I am an International Fine Art Photographer, Educator and Sustainable Health Advocate. Since 2009, I have photographed urban gardens and small farms in Upstate New York as a grad student in the MFA program at Rochester Institute of Technology; and abroad in Ireland through an Artist Residency with Cow House Studios; in Finland through a U.S. Student Fulbright Grant and in South Africa through a temporary residency. I have taught photography courses at universities in the Washington D.C. area, as well as in South Africa. 

Through Christin Photography, I offer a variety of photography services ranging from weddings and family portraits to corporate head shots, editorial images, and product photography. When you choose Christin Photography, you can trust that you’ll receive a high quality product from a caring photographer who comes highly skilled and experienced. My quiet, gentle and patient approach allows for a calming experience in front of the camera. I create a collaborative atmosphere, working together with my clients, serving your needs with excellence and ultimately achieving your photographic goals. I offer archival heirloom prints and custom made albums. My incredibly supportive husband Wiehan is often seen working along-side me as a second shooter or lighting assistant. Contact Christin Photography today and let us know about all your photographic goals!
