Eleven 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 eight years later, stronger than ever, and ready and eager to celebrate with you as you say, "I do", to your soon to be spouse! 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 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.

His Personal Interests: 

Born and raised in Canada, I am a proud maple syrup lover, but since I met my wife, this Canadian has now 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 had a Laser Tag themed wedding, you would definitely become my favorite clients.  Oh, you like movies?  Maybe not as much as I do. ;)  My wife tries to separate me from my love for sugar, coffee and wedding cakes, although I think she’s giving up a little now.  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 the best husband and father to our three munchkins is the most important thing to me and what defines me.

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 from time to time along with a team of other second shooters, but most of my work is done behind the scenes!  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 your photography package and sometimes helping you pick your outfits!  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.       

Her 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 a turquoise color.  :)  I appreciate and love music… I am a little old school in this area, but am 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 dream of owning a photography business.  I never even imagined owning a business, but here I am today, and it is now my job and passion!  But before being a business owner, I am a wife to the greatest man on earth and a mother to our precious children who are cutie pies.  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.
