I began this incredible journey in 2015 when I decided to start documenting our newlywed life. I had no idea what kind of joy and fulfillment this job would bring into my life. It has helped shape who I am and I hope and pray every time you step in front of my camera, you can feel how much you mean to me. I have photographed 150+ weddings and more families then I can even begin to count. I love looking for beautiful light and capturing your story exactly as it happens. Please stick around and learn more, then allow me to learn about you!
I want you to look back on your images and remember exactly how happy you felt in that moment
The Charissa Lee Studios experience is built around capturing the big and small moments. I want you to look back at your images and be reminded of how happy you were and exactly what that looked like. With my true to color editing you will not only receive
beautifully captured, candid moments, but the jaw dropping images you've always dreamed of!
I'm a mom of 2 beautiful girls and completely in love with my high school sweetheart. We've been married 8 years and I am constantly pinching myself that this is my life. My days are filled with wiping noses, preschool drop and reading stories. My nights are filled with beautiful brides, endearing families and late editing nights filled with Dr. Pepper. I've always been told I have a big heart and I am 100% an empath. So I would say I have found the perfect job. My entire life I prepared to be a teacher. I couldn't be more grateful photography found me. I'm living my dream every day and am so grateful for a job that allows me time with my babies and the opportunity to get to know YOU!
This was the beginning of it all. He is my biggest supporter and motivator and I am obsessed with the beautiful life we are building together.
This was a big leap of faith for us poor newlyweds but I instantly fell in love. I spent all my free time taking pictures and learning how to edit in photoshop (insert eye roll here lol)
The sweetest couple hired me to photograph their wedding in Las Vegas and I had never felt so honored and disbelief in my entire life. Still so freaking grateful
There is nothing in this life I am more proud of than this moment. She is our everything and the joy she has brought into our life has made me a better person, wife, and photographer.
This year brought a lot of up and downs and I am forever a different person because of it. It's also the year I became Charissa Lee Studios and decided what this business would be moving forward.
Hands down I am forever changed. Being a mom is my calling and being their mom, well I have no words.
