Twelve years ago, my wife and I said those two special words, "I do". As they say, "First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage". We soon had our first child, and this is where our love for capturing life's special moments and our business, Craig Obrist Photography, was born. Here we are ten years later, stronger than ever, and ready and eager to celebrate with you as you say, "I do", to your loved one! We are here because we are advocates for marriage. We value it as you do, because as married people, we know that it’s the greatest gift. We remember every moment of our wedding like it was yesterday… both the fun and the stress of wedding planning and how joyful, yet overwhelming it felt all at once. We are here to make it easier! We are more than the people behind the camera. We want to be your friends! Through coffee dates, texts and phone calls, we are there to be visionaries for the unique beauty of the love between you and your soul mate. Our desire and goal are to capture your day the way it deserves to be remembered. Through our images, you will be able to laugh, cry and feel all the emotions by reliving every moment of the day that will mark the beginning of your “happily ever after.” Let’s grab coffee, maybe even dessert, and become a team to create and share with the world your unique love story.

 
  MEET CRAIG

MEET CRAIG

I am the photographer and editor for Craig Obrist Photography.  I am here to give you, your family and friends an experience like you never imagined... My passion as a photographer is light… that’s what I follow and see.  I believe that lighting is key to photography.  Whether the lighting is soft and natural or bold and colorful, lighting creates the emotion of a picture.  Working hand in hand with clients, I capture moments in time in abstract, yet beautiful ways.  Allow me to draw out the beauty within you and your loved one.  Trust me in visualizing what you can’t see through the lens.  My job is to make timeless art pieces with you as the subject… Can’t wait to meet you, learn about you and make you laugh and cry through the images we create together.

My Personal Interests: 

Born and raised in Canada, I am a proud maple syrup lover, but since I met my wife, this Canadian has become Korean. I love Korean food like no other. People are often amazed at how much I love it and eat it, especially my mother-in-law.  Give me some kimchee stew and rice, and I’m good to go!  My fav music is trance… that is what I listen to and dance to while editing.  Biased, but I do love Celine Dion too..., but who doesn't?  If you ask me to go to Laser Tag with you any time of the day, I will be there..., and if you have a Laser Tag themed wedding, you will definitely become my favorite clients.  Oh, you like movies?  Maybe not as much as I do. ;)  I’ve been on a health journey since two years ago. Believe it or not, I lost 40 pounds and have kept it off since and will never go back! From then on, swimming has become my fav hobby. I swim like a fish 100 laps a day and try my best to eat right.  I will do anything that’s in the adventurous category and you’ll know I’m coming because of my whistle.  I am mesmerized by the unique beauty of each sunset… I absolutely love making people laugh and engaging in conversations with strangers and friends alike.  I can make anything fun and if fun isn’t part of it, I just can’t do it. I love photography, but I love my God and family more… Being a faithful, Godly man, the best husband and father to our three munchkins are the most important things to me and what defines me.

 
  MEET UNCHONG

MEET UNCHONG

Hi, I'm Unchong, proud wife of Craig Obrist and the other half of Craig Obrist Photography! I am responsible for marketing, sales and client service for our business while being a full time mommy to our three cutie patooties. I second shoot with Craig along with a team of other second shooters, but most of my work is done behind the scenes! You’ll see me on social media updating you with our business and personal highlights. My goal is to give you an excellent experience that is prompt, kind, and offered with integrity from the moment you contact us. I'm here to assist you and help you embrace this once in a lifetime season of your life. Sometimes this means helping you pick out your venue or the outfits for your shoot, and coming up with the timeline of your wedding day. I love to offer guidance and honest, professional opinion to anyone who asks!  Looking forward to becoming friends and partnering with you through your wedding journey.       

My Personal Interests: 

Born in South Korea and raised in the US, I am a lover of all things food.  If food is a love language, that’s for me.  Want to buy me a gift?  Please don’t think twice and give me food instead.  I love cooking to the best of my ability for our family and although I have good control over spending, I become weak when I see a clock, a globe or anything in turquoise or blush. I’m pretty much obsessed with shiplap, so much that Craig designed a shirt for me that says, “Holy Shiplap”. (In fact, it’s available on Amazon. hehe)  I feel silly admitting it, but I know way to0 much about Prince William and Kate Middleton and the entire Royal Family. I appreciate and love music… I am a little old school in this area, but I’m a proud fan of Josh Groban and music from the early 90’s.  My dream has always been singing, but that dream got replaced by a better one of owning a photography business.  Who knows? Maybe singing will come back one day… I love my job, but before being a business owner, I am a wife to the greatest man on earth and a mother to our precious children whom I adore.  My greatest desire is to intentionally make our marriage better than yesterday and to see our kids grow up to fear God and pursue their purpose in Him. I give all the glory to the One that first chose to love me.
