Christie DuBois Photographer, candid headshot

Wedding, event, and portrait photographer that enjoys long walks on the beach–and in the mountains, the forest, and the desert. Let’s be real, I just like going on adventures. My mission is to go on an adventure with you and capture authentic moments to help tell your story.

Whether you’re looking to document a season of life, celebrate yourself, or have a freaking awesome party, I’d love to be there with my camera. Bonus points if you want to take a hike or share your favorite local brew!

I am now based in the beautiful state of Hawaii, but if you’re planning an event on the mainland–or somewhere else in the world–I am ready to travel. I have a brand new passport that’s been burning a hole in my pocket, so let’s do the dang thing!

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Christie DuBois Photography is rated five stars on Google and Thumbtack!

“Christie was an absolute dream to work with. She made me feel comfortable in front of the camera, and the entire shooting process fun overall. The end results were beyond my expectations consistently amazing well executed shots. I can’t pick my favorites because they all turned out so good.”

Nikki C.

“Christie did a fantastic job. I’m not usually comfortable in front of a camera but she made the entire experience enjoyable. The pictures she took are extraordinary and I couldn’t think of a better person to take them.”

Matthew C.

“We hired Christie for my son’s senior pictures. She did an amazing job! We loved her creative flair and fun photo op ideas that she incorporated into the photo shoot, utilizing the beautiful park nature settings. I really appreciated the time she spent understanding my sons interests (dirt bike and truck) and thoughtfully incorporating some of those into the photo shoot. We couldn’t be happier with the pictures and are planning to have her do our family pictures later this year. We highly recommend Christie!!!!”

Terri J.

“Christie went above and beyond! All we knew is that we wanted to have some maternity photos done as a keepsake of our journey. Christie researched and suggested many different locations based on our preferences and was extremely flexible when it came to scheduling. She is so personable and immediately made us feel at ease. We got our beautiful pictures back amazingly quickly and at an extremely fair price. Hands down would choose Christie again and again to help us preserve our special moments! Thank you, Christie!”

5 out of 5 stars for West Coast Photographer Christie DuBois! I’ve never been happier with a set of headshots. I needed a specific look for my website –dark, gritty, real, gender neutral, B & W photography. Christie absolutely nailed it. I couldn’t be more delighted. Thank you West Coast Photographer! Thank you Christie!

Jennifer C.

“Christie is professional and arrived to my photo session promptly. I am usually awkward when I get my picture taken but she made me feel comfortable. Thank you Christie for the beautiful pictures to commemorate my graduation from Fire Academy.”

Emily R.

“When Tyler and I were planning our wedding, I wanted everything to feel natural and truly expressive of who we are and our love for one another. Christie was the perfect photographer to make those goals reality. When she shot our engagement photos, she did a great job of putting us at ease. My initial awkwardness melted away, and I ended up with many photos of Tyler and I laughing and hugging that are now all over our house. We also had Christie photograph our engagement party. She captured beautifully colorful portraits of the party, with lots of candid moments of all guests and ourselves. I dearly wish she could have photographed our wedding, but it was 3,000 miles away. I would recommend Christie for any special event; she is a true artist who really connects with the people she is photographing.”

Jen K.

“What a wonderful experience! Christie is patient and so talented. The kiddos loved her as well! I would recommend her to anyone!”

Jamie L.

“I’m a photographer and worked alongside Christie on a couple shoots. She was very professional and fun to work with. We did a headshot swap as well and she made me feel comfortable, despite my preference to be BEHIND the camera. Christie has a calming effect on clients and gives great direction. I look forward to working with her again!”

Kathleen S.

“The pictures turned out AMAZING! You did an over the top performance, and these images are absolute proof. We can’t tell you how impressed we are with them, and we are greatly looking forward to the finished product!”

Robert C.

“Wow! I am so happy with your pictures! They are so amazing! I like the way you brought out the yellow in the stained glass. There are so many that I find great! Thank you for capturing so many great moments you got a lot of pictures! VERY GOOD JOB!!!!”

Hire a pro? but my iphone has 3 cameras…?

It is my job as a professional photographer to find a creative and authentic way to tell your story–whatever it is right now. Maybe you want to hire me to document the most spectacular and meaningful day of your life, or it may be just another Tuesday taking a walk with your dog. I think that the every-day, vernacular parts of our lives are worth saving just as much as the extraordinary ones.

Quality photography is an investment for a lifetime and for future generations. I love to imagine your great grandchildren admiring the framed photo of your wedding day, and hearing your family stories from their elders. The images we make together will be timeless reflections of your life story.
