Nashville based Wedding Photographer. Capturing Sweet Romances.
Behind the Lens
Hey y’all. My name is Christina, and I am the photographer behind the lens for SBG. I’m so glad you stopped by! I hope you feel welcome here on my little page on the big world of the internet. If this were my home I would invite you in to visit a while and offer you a glass of tea. So please feel at home as you look around, accept my hug as a welcome and virtual glass of tea as you tour the website.
Here is the story of my journey as a photographer…… Something I love more than I ever thought I could.
I have always loved photographs. The memories and emotions they evoke when you look at them pulled me in. Christmas of 2011 my husband gave me a camera. That gift became something I would not leave home without. My husband saw my passion for photography and encouraged me to pursue it as a business. So, with a leap of faith and many prayers, Saved By Grace Photography came to life a year later. From the beginning, I have met some amazing people and their families. With their support, the business has grown beyond my wildest dreams. With those dreams came the opening of my first studio in April of 2014 where I shared the space with a boutique. By September of 2014 I moved to a space all my own and began a whirlwind journey never imaginable to me.
My goal is to continue to learn and grow as I capture priceless memories for the families I have the honor of working with. Every year I strive to attend as many classes, workshops and conferences as possible to further my knowledge and skill as a photographer. Knowing there are always ways for me to better myself allows me to put forth my best for my clients. While maintaining my first love of photography by capturing little moments and incorporating skills into lifestyle ways of photographing weddings.
I have been married to an amazingly talented custom saddle maker (You can find him on Facebook- Swanson Saddlery) for 12 years. I am a follower of Christ and Saved by His amazing Grace. I give Him thanks for all things as He deserves all the glory. I’m so grateful He blessed me with such a great family, friends and the ability to live out my dream.
I am happiest when I am cooking for friends & family when we gather together to visit.
I’m just a Southern girl who loves everything about the south and is drawn to the western way of life.
With my focus on family and the simple things in life with an appreciation for the finer things I am just living life to its fullest.
If you have ever heard the song “That’s Important to Me” by Joey & Rory then you have an idea of who I am and what is important to me.
I hope this gives you an insight as to who I am and what I believe Saved By Grace Photography is all about. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I would love to help capture your special moments or even just make a new friend! Have a cup runneth over kind of day!
