I'm a hopeless romantic who finds great joy in creating and capturing connection and beauty wherever I go.
Hi there! Welcome to the Christine Hazel Photography blog, a journal about my photography, life, travels, and advice. Stay a while and say hello!
Would you believe it if I told you it was raining 20 minutes before this gorgeous Mill Pond Park engagement session?! After sneaking a peek at the radar, we decided that we should continue on with the session. And, let me tell you–I’m so glad we did! As any New Englander knows, peak fall colors […]
The sunset at this downtown Newburyport engagement session holds a special place in my heart! I’ve never been to Newburyport before, but this is a special spot for my sweet couple, Danelle and Tyler. They often used to meet in Newburyport for dates when they were dating long distance, so we all knew this was […]
You could say that I came home from Allison and Eric’s Arnold Arboretum engagement session ecstatic. You could also say that I came home cold! The weather truly kept us on our toes. We had a mix of sunshine, dark clouds, harsh winds, and drizzle. But we still were able to capture this important milestone […]
Now that I’ve warmed up again after being in the arctic, I’m so excited to share about this Scituate Lighthouse Engagement with Shannon and Johnny! Shannon and Johnny have the sweetest love story! They met through mutual friends over 7 years ago. Those same mutual friends were there to cheer on Shannon and Johnny when […]
This seems to be the summer of fields and flowers for me, and I’m not sad about it! I had the honor of meeting up with Kathrine and Garth at Tower Hill for their engagement session. I actually went to school with Kathrine from fourth grade to senior year. It’s so cool to see someone […]

This engagement session was a long time coming! I’ve known Melissa since elementary school. We became best friends when we joined the same field hockey team in middle school. And when Melissa started dating Alex, I started waiting for an engagement announcement. That finally happened, and then our original session date got rained out. Since […]
Last week, Dillon and I had the pleasure of taking a trip up to New Hampshire to spend some time with Stephanie and Zack, one of my couples getting married next year. Steph is an amazing planner! She booked me in December 2019 for her 2021 wedding. We laughed about her planning skills at the […]
As we all know, everything in life feels a bit topsy-turvy due to social distancing and stay-at-home orders due to COVID-19. Many couples already have rearranged their wedding plans, and as orders keep extending, other husbands and wives to be duos will face the same challenge. Whether you’ve already had to change your wedding plans, […]
When it comes to planning your big day, the first few steps seem to be pretty straight forward–you find your venue, which usually helps select your date, and then you say yes to the dress. But what comes next? Of course, there are many right ways to plan your wedding, but in my opinion, picking […]
