When you choose Crista Lee Photography you are hiring a Crista Lee a professional photographer and her husband Ruben, a videographer to capture your wedding day as a team. Crista Lee has been shooting weddings in the Bow Valley as her full-time career for almost a decade is one of Canmore and Banff's most trusted photography vendors. She has spent her entire adult life as a professional documentary photographer for international film festivals, news and wedding photography. Storytelling is her passion. Crista Lee has received two "Fearless" awards, as well as one her wedding images being nominated by McLeans Magazine, covers of several National Newspapers with her wedding images including the National Post, the Edmonton Sun as well, the Huffington Post.  As a storyteller of weddings, the biggest honour in her career so far was having McLean's Magazine nominate one of her wedding images from a couple who got married here in Canmore during the Alberta Floods, as one of the top 100 most significant images in Canadian History. You do not receive that kind of notification by paying to enter a photo contest... "Mclean's" is Canada's #1 newsmagazine publication!  

There have been no variations in her career and she has extensive studies in commercial photography. These studies allow herself and my team to confidently enter into any lighting conditions, in any venue and create stunning storytelling imagery. She makes light where there is none and utilizes natural light when it too is available. She has a photojournalism major and master's studies in International and Inner-cultural communications. And has live in Canmore, Alberta full time since 2003.

She takes her work on storytelling wedding days very seriously. With all products produced she wears her heart on her sleeve. She edits and cull all images herself in her studio and for that reason she will never shoot more than one wedding per week,  She takes pride in creating a consistent product from being to end of the day and stay true to her artistry, so that if you look at an image almost immediately you will say "Awe that's a Crista Lee wedding photo".  

Her husband Ruben will be alongside Crista Lee for your engagement session and your wedding day documenting by video the footage and words you share to bring together your wedding video to life. They will send you a questionnaire before you meet them for your engagement session and that will help provoke thoughts and reflections as to why you fell in love and for them to learn more about you guys as a couple!  

For Crista Lee and Ruben having a video documentary of under 10 minutes that you can share with your friends, family and loved ones is so very special! It is a way that not only you both as a couple can relive your wedding day, also the loved ones who can not join here in the mountains may also see the highlights of your wedding day. Being able to relive your wedding day though compelling and stunning wedding photographs and video with voice is the perfect combination possible! You and your partner can relive though video some very precious moments such as your first dance through more than just photography! She takes exceptional first dance photos but it is so nice to bring that moment to life as well!   

Crista Lee Photography has very close working relationships with the large venues here in the Bow Valley and Banff National Park, she knows the lighting and were to go for all times of the year, she knows most of the hotels and resorts inside and out, including the Banff Springs and Chateau where knowing the resort can make or break your wedding photography experience. How to park, where to park, where to avoid crowds in high tourist season in Canmore, Banff and Lake Louise.
