During our chat, I will go over services, pricing, and see if you have any questions I can answer. To book you'll sign a service agreement and pay a non-refundable retainer to reserve a date.

San Jose, Ca

My husband and I absolutely loved working with Christina and her team for our recent wedding. From before wedding, day-of, and post-wedding, Christina went above and beyond to make sure that we were satisfied with her services. She is incredibly personable which is important as the photographer becomes one of your go-to people on the day of the wedding. To compliment it, her photography work is outstanding and captures the sites and emotions of the day. Would work with her again in a heartbeat and would recommend for anybody looking for professional quality photography services 

Visalia, Ca

CJ Hopper is where a memory is caught beautifully and creatively. Their work is absolutely magnificent and breathtaking. They have the perfect eye to capture the most important moments and leave you speechless. 
Not only is their work amazing but they are even more amazing to work with. 
I wouldn't look any further than this because they truly deliver the best work. 
They have an artistic eye that helps them capture moments that we wouldn't even think of! 
I'm very happy they took my wedding photos! I know that years and years from now I will love to look at them! 

Kingsburg, CA

Christina did our engagement and wedding photos. We really enjoyed working with her from beginning to end. The photos are amazing! We are so happy with them. Christina really took the time to get to know us and understand what we liked. She was also great at communicating with us throughout the process. She was very organized the day of the wedding and kept things running smoothly. We highly recommend her!
