Q. Do you only shoot weddings?
A. No. A majority of my business is weddings but I also do a bit of magazine work as well. A book of my photos, “Connecting: Celebrating the People and Places of the Hudson Highlands” was also recently published by the Hudson Highlands Land Trust. You can view some of the photos from the book and my editorial work here: www.ChristineAshburnPhoto.com. I also take photos of families and children but have yet to incorporate this work onto my websites.

I might prefer a specific photo’s composition but you might prefer another based on who is in the photo, the emotion or simply how you look. Again, I give a lot so you can decide.
Q. Do you work with a second shooter?
A. Yes, however, she usually leaves shortly after the reception starts. I feel that unless you have over 180 guests at your wedding, two shooters is a bit obtrusive at the reception.
Q. How do you deliver the photos and when?
A. I put your photos in your own private gallery on my website, as I edit them. You can download them directly from my website and/or share them directly with family and friends. Depending on my
Q. What sets you apart from other wedding photographers?
I truly care about your photographs and your well being – and give every wedding I capture my all. I take photographing a wedding very seriously. It is one of the most important days in
