Relive the moment...

Nostalgic and Authentic

"I want to set the tone. I’m a single mom who met the man of her dreams after moving to a rural city from Atlanta. He decides he wants to marry me very quickly and I have only a few months to plan a wedding. My budget is extremely small, but my family is very large. No matter what, there’s going to be at least 100 people there. It’s a month before the big day, and I’m frantically trying to find a photographer within my price range. My cousin finds Tasteful Tea and Charissa…essentially making the best possible decision ever for my wedding. She’s sweet, kind, and talented; willing to meet you where you are as far as planning or vision. She helping me pull off this spectacular day for under 6k and made it look fabulous in the process. She asked about potential poses, gave tips on crucial moments and wanted to know every detail from faces/names/relationships to moments I wanted captured. Charissa captured the love, the chaos, the essence, and fun of my special day. For that, I’ll always have something nice to say about her work. Quick turnaround too! Thank you, again, Charissa! Your photos deserve to be in someone’s gallery."

Meet Charissa

Hi, I'm Charissa! My style is a mixture of traditional poses, editorial poses, and planned/unplanned candids. I love editing images that recreate the essence of the day. This involves staying true to the colors that were in front of me and mimicking the lighting scenarios that were in front of me. I am a huge fan of flash photography as well as natural light, and love the art of using both in the appropriate scenarios to create a timeless and nostalgic look. I've been taking photos for seven years while I have owned my own wedding band that has performed at wedding venues all throughout the South. I have been in the wedding photography industry in particular for one year. I build strong bonds with my client, because it's important to know people you'll be staring at through a camera for hours on end! To feel comfortable in front of the camera, I believe that it's important to laugh and it's even more important that you feel like you look your best. I'm here to be your hype girl, your helping hand, and your shoulder to cry on. Lastly, when it comes to the vision for YOUR wedding day, I'm always open to suggestions to incorporate creative poses and locations that you also want to add!
