This journey began in 2015 when I decided to start documenting my 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!
every beautiful moment deserves to be captured
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 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. 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 is an important part of the story because I would truly not be the woman I am today without this man and the beautiful life we are building together
This was such a huge turning point for me. I realized how much this job brought me to life and was something I wanted to take more seriously.
I genuinely believe I am a better photographer because I am so completely enveloped in my role as mother. I notice and realize the fleeting moments you will want captured forever.
This incredible career has changed my life. Getting to know all you incredible people and being invited into your most precious moments in life are the greatest thing I could have ever hoped for.
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! These moments truly matter to me as if they were my own.
The best way for me to truly capture you in the most authentic way possible is for us to get to know each other. Through thoughtfully planned questionnaires, consults, phone calls and every moment during your session we will get to know and trust each other so I can have the opportunity to capture you in an honest, authentic way!
I always joke with my couples that I am truly a fly on your wall during your entire day. I promise you will always know where to put your hands, where to hold your flowers, and the best light to stand in. But capturing your day as authentically and candidly as possible is always my priority. I hope that as you look through your gallery, you will see moments that you didn't get to experience or that you don't remember happened but were documented beautifully anyway.
