I'm based in Michigan and am available for travel worldwide. In 2022 I am traveling to 13 different states and a whole heckin' country across the North Atlantic Ocean for an elopement. If you're wondering if I'll travel to your dream destination- the answer is always YES! There is no place too near or far- if it means a lot to you to have your love story documented there, I'm IN!
I'm an elopement, intimate wedding and lifestyle photographer. An adventurous spirit and a sucker for true love. I yearn to capture those wildly intimate moments for ALL couples. I'm here for the wild souls, the explorers, the off the beaten path types. Capturing honest love in the most beautiful places on the planet is what fuels my fire (all while practicing leave no trace ethics, of course!)
Maybe you're unsure of where to elope- consider me your location matchmaker! Or maybe you're eloping in a state that requires an officiant, but you don't really want a stranger in your ceremony... No worries, I'm a certified officiant and can legally sign your certificate! Perhaps you want an all day adventure filled with hiking, helicopter rides, off-roading in a 4 x 4, cliff diving, a campfire or picnic, or even rock climbing?! I'm ready to assist in securing everything you need to make your elopement unique to your love (and take super rad photographs to document it all!)
You're likely reading this page because you have thought about eloping, or even better, you're set on this grand adventure with your person! As a former bride who had a destination elopement, I can assure you that I'm ready to help with your day! A LOT of work goes into elopements, so I want you to know that not only am I happy to photograph your day, but I am also over the moon glad to assist in planning or securing vendors if needed (I know I wish I had help when we eloped!)
Just like with the elopements, I am ALWAYS happy to assist my couples in securing vendors and planning their day if it is desired. I've been lucky enough to photograph plenty of elopements, intimate weddings and large weddings over 100 people in my career and have made incredible connections throughout this journey with my business. Ready to start discussing your intimate wedding plans and photography desires? Send me a message below!
Perhaps you want to have a wedding without all the hustle and bustle, the stress of the day. Intimate weddings are the perfect way to not only focus on your love, but being able to share it with your dearest friends and family members. I absolutely adore intimate weddings and capturing the candid shots of guests as they celebrate the couple's wedding day.
I'd love to be able to get to know each and one of you who submits and inquiry through my website. I want to know what your love is like, what is unique to your relationship and see how we can bring those elements out into photographs. Maybe it's a special place, an activity you bond over, or even your pets. I'm super stoked to hear about what makes your love song special to you, so let's get to it!
Did your partner pop the question?! Are you madly in love with your significant other? Maybe it's your anniversary? Perhaps you're getting to know someone still and you're looking for some cute-as-heck photographs to post on social media?! You're in the right place! I'm just going to jump in and say it, just like every other photographer, I LOVE capturing LOVE! Oh my I hate to be so generic but it's true. Love is such a beautiful thing and photographing new and old love makes my career worthwhile.
For those wanting to get a bit more creative with their boudoir sessions, I am here for it! Examples would be florals, a milk bath, a pool, etc.! Couples boudoir is also an option. Boudoir photography can be viewed on Instagram @violaboudoir.
All photos are delivered via an online password protected gallery, or there is an option for a USB, prints or photo albums. Ready to talk boudoir? Let's do it!!
Boudoir photography is such a beautiful art form and I am stoked it is a type of photography that I offer. Boudoir sessions are located within Metro Detroit and Grand Rapids, MI at any location of your choice (I do have a list of incredible studios and spaces for rent for all sorts of vibes.)
Unlimited outfit changes and hair + makeup services are available for add on.

Christina makes you feel like you've known her your entire life, she takes away those anxious jitters too! She's funny, kind and goes above and beyond for her clients to ensure you get everything you want and more. She is incredibly respectful as well, always asking permission prior to doing anything. hands down the best experience we've ever had with a photographer and absolutely love the photographs. fantastic work and an unforgettable experience each and every time we are in front of her camera!

Christina captured our wedding day and we couldn't have been happier with the images. She was easy to work with and an all around delight to have with us on our special day. we loved the images we received and we'll cherish them forever. we were in touch through my engagement and she even helped me find new vendors when we needed to. her customer service is off the charts and she is incredibly helpful! All in all, we would 15/10 use her business again and recommend juniper woods photography to everyone!

Christina is so detailed and reassuring when explaining how things are going to work. She makes you feel like you've been friends for years and is extremely kind and understanding. Also- getting the nervous gitters when meeting your photographer is a real thing, she put our fears at ease. the detail she puts into editing is pure magic- you can tell she spends a lot of time pouring her passion into her work. we would recommend her to anyone who loves the moody and romantic side of photography- you won't regret it!
