Best. Photographer. Ever.
I first met Christine when she photographed my best friend's wedding five years ago in Ottawa. I now live in Montreal, and when I got engaged, she was the first person we reached out to, because I had absolute faith in her final product... not to mention her overall happy personality and positive attitude! When you're spending some of the most important days of your lives with this person, you want to make sure you get along well! She was not only willing to travel for us, she did it twice! Once for our engagement session and once for our wedding day. She was incredibly accommodating, always looking out for us and making sure we were happy, from the very start. She responds to emails fast and answered questions we didn't even know we had. She offered a number of different packages and helped us find the best one for what we needed. We wanted a second photographer for our wedding day and she brought along the amazing Charlotte Buckle. We had a loud group of 14 bridesmaids and groomsmen, and she wrangled them all! She was the first person to help me fix my dress if it was out of place or give my husband a cloth to make sure he had clean glasses in photos. Even though she does this all the time, she treats every time with so much attention and care! If you're looking for a well priced photographer who is guaranteed to provide amazing photos (and albums!), who blends into the background so well while still capturing the best moments, who stays positive and is up for anything, this is your gal. Thank you Christine, I'm so glad Shannon hired you 5 years ago. We love you so much!!!

As two individuals who are not at all photogenic and generally loathe to partake in the photography experience, we were hesitant about booking a photographer. However, from the onset, Christine was flexible and responsive to our small, intimate wedding request and showcased a genuine invested interest in our special day. Upon meeting her a week before our wedding, she absolved the majority of our woes and gave the impression that we were longtime acquaintances. Her charismatic personality compelled us to feel at ease which translated to our best natural smiles finding their way to the surface on our wedding day. It was a pleasure to work with her for she was forthright yet nuanced, and captured the spirit and essence of our relationship despite having only known us for a short period of time. We were thrilled with the end result of our pictures and are so pleased that our memories of this time managed to be encapsulated on film. As mentioned, not only do the photos showcase our true worth as subjects (ie - our best 'sides') but they present who we are individuals within the scheme of our relationship. I would happily recommend Christine's artistry to everyone for she has convinced me that photography can indeed be an art form as well.

Personality + Talent + Energy. Christine Reid is simply great. She easily helps to elevate the tension of a long and emotional day. Her professionalism, ready smile and easy manner made her a joy to work with through the day. Great communication from beginning to end and so flexible with our crazy scheduling issues. We'll likely be taking annual photoshoots and Christine will be our photographer. Thank You!

Our experience with Christine has been an absolute pleasure. Upon meeting her at a cafe the first time, both my husband and I thought she was really easy to get along with and a very upbeat and bubbly person. Our first session together was our engagement shoot where Christine gave us cute props to break the tension and we ventured out to many different areas to get some great shots!
Our wedding day was no different, Christine was promptly on time and was able to get along with the entire bridal party with her friendly personality. We are so happy with the final pictures and got some nice candid ones :)

Christine Reid is amazing, plain and simple. Working with Christine was easily the best part of planning our wedding and it was such a joy having her there on the big day. My husband and I are both pretty shy, but Christine made us both feel unbelievably comfortable in front of the camera. She was also incredibly discreet and did not distract us from our big moments - I don't even remember seeing her during the ceremony!
Not only was she a joy to work with, her photographs of our wedding turned out beautifully. Both friends and family have consistently commented on how impressed they are by the photos, as well as how impressed they were by Christine herself. Her attitude, ability to capture a crowd's attention (to wrangle the group shots) and her eye for the important details of our wedding have all been consistently complimented by our wedding guests as we share our photos with them.
In addition to her wonderful work, Christine is a lovely, kind and thoughtful person. She is a joy to be around and I am so happy to have met her.

We loved having Christine as our photographer. She was very flexible and went out of her way to get extra details of the day for us. For just being one photographer she was phenomenal. Her lighting is consistently good throughout her photos and another main highlight is her winning personality. Christine is very comfortable, witty and seems to fit in with the crowd wherever she is.
Christine Reid was wonderful to work with. Not only is she a talented photographer but also she has to be one of the friendliest, easy going, laid back and charming person I have ever met! I believe it was fate stepping in the moment I came across her website while looking for a wedding photographer.
She listened to every detail you wish for for your wedding and makes it comes true! She was a life saver for me on my wedding day and that vendor who helped me through beginning to end. Thanks to her photos for giving me a lifetime of memories. From beginning to end during the planning of my wedding; Christine was amazing and everything I could have asked for and more. I feel like I’ve gained a friend. She was there for every question and even assisted me in finding other vendors and also helped me create my wedding day posters. I could never thank her enough for everything she has given and done for me. She’s such a talented photographer and the sweetest person ever! I’ll gladly call her to do any of my future family shots. She’s worth every penny and definitely the ideal wedding vendor to work with. You won’t regret it, I can promise you that!! Christine Reid - #TEAMLUMBRE loves you!!

Christine was amazing! Very personable and professional. She showed great initiative when she agreed to travel to Ottawa to capture our wedding day for us. She knew what she was doing and made us feel comfortable and relaxed. Our photos turned out beautifully and it's all thanks to her!!

Christine was friendly, helpful, and fun to work with. Her relaxed but professional approach helped put a nervous couple at ease. She was a wonderful presence at our wedding and her photos were uniformly excellent. We give her the highest recommendation.
