about the artist
Lisa Catherine Photography is an organic blend of fine art medium format film and digital portraiture creating timeless and elegant heirlooms. My method is to ease natural emotion and chemistry from my clients through an artful and meticulously honed approach while placing emphasis to the story that is unfolding within each unique moment. With great attention to detail, I offer my guidance and expertise throughout your experience ensuring a seamless and desired outcome.

"A PRESERVER BY NATURE, I AM DRAWN TO THE TIMELESS AND TANGIBLE MEMORIES THAT FILM PHOTOGRAPHY CREATES ENABLING US TO HOLD ON TO LIFE'S FLEETING MOMENTS."
- Lisa Catherine Christoffel
Lisa Catherine is inspired by a vision of a simpler life, where meaningful moments are appreciated and patiently allowed to unfold as nature intended, and togetherness and taking the time to slow down are all celebrated. A preserver by nature, I am drawn to the timeless and tangible memories that film photography creates enabling us to hold on to life’s fleeting moments.
I immerse myself with the arts on a daily basis within a variety of mediums and take inspiration provided from those many avenues. I am drawn to beauty, adventure, and a well-arranged tune. Most important of all, I am driven by my family. I have two stunning young daughters who make every moment pure magic, and a loving husband who would do anything for his girls.

education for photographers
With over ten years of wedding photography experience I have a wealth of knowledge to share. I have had the pleasure of learning from some of the very best in the industry worldwide, and have been published in several of the industry's most prominent publications. As a result, Lisa Catherine mentoring is an in-depth, one day private mentor session with a carefully curated curriculum tailored specifically for each photographer based on his or her questions, needs, and current business and artistic goals. Our session may include instruction that is both style and technique based throughout a beautifully styled photo shoot. For more information, please inquire to get in touch.
Our communication remains open throughout the entire planning process. You may be in contact with me for inspiration, creative direction and logistics for your wedding photography timeline. Lisa Catherine wedding clients receive my custom Bridal Guide to aide with your wedding planning, timelines, and day-of preparations to ensure the best outcome for your wedding photography.
A story teller at heart, I will document the emotions, moments, and thoughtfully planned details of your wedding day as they unfold naturally.
Throughout the day I will be constantly seeking elegant compositions, complementary tones and beautiful light to create organically timeless images through a cohesive and curated process.
I believe in the power of fluid motion in imagery. As such, I find ways to introduce movement into a scene to breathe life and authenticity into our images.
I pay artistic attention to the aesthetics of the environment I am working in to ensure harmony and balance within the colours and textures of the setting.
Always aiming to elevate and enhance, after your wedding you will receive a collection of emotive images bound into elegant heirlooms to be enjoyed for years to come.
Our wedding collections are tailored to meet the individual needs of each client. Taken into consideration when creating custom collections are location, number of hours of coverage required, print and album add-ons, and more. This allows you to invest in what matters most to you; timeless imagery and heirlooms to suit your desired needs and wants. That said, the average investment for full wedding day coverage begins at approximately $4,000.00. Great importance is placed on acquiring an understanding of each client's personal wedding day vision, and so I take on a limited number of weddings each year due to how much I absorb myself within each event. I offer a hands-on approach and custom tailor photography timelines while making recommendations to achieve the best photography results and a seamless wedding day.
