My story

  • Christy D Swanberg
  • photographer

I’m Christy D Swanberg and I’m humbled and honoured that you’re here. I'm a southern Louisiana girl, who now calls Calgary, Alberta my home. I have a wonderful blue-eyed husband and two darling children.

9 years ago, I wanted to explore this beautiful journey of capturing all of life’s moments, the beauty, love and life that is all over the globe. Becoming a photographer allows me to share my gifts and talents with the world. Capturing people in their true and authentic self, enjoying and loving their lives, because we honestly need more of it. Finding beauty in the smallest and biggest moments is what it’s all about.

Outside of photography, I find joy in patio nights, sunsets in new places, my children’s hands, dancing parties whenever or wherever, cooking for my family and friends, and most importantly, laughing so hard that I can’t feel my toes. I love, love and living this life with all I have.

My belief is in helping people fall in love with their lives and embrace this beautiful life that we’re given, through moments big and small. I believe that it’s more than photography. It’s about capturing a place in time and in our lives through emotion, comfort, celebration and grace.

I love travelling the globe in search of new surroundings and making connections with my clients. Whether you’re tieing the knot abroad, have been following my work from afar or wish to capture your next experience somewhere magical, I’m here to capture those moments for you.
