Behind the Camera


Christian and Robert started collaborating on projects in 2017 and launched the Elmtree brand together to focus on a unique cinematic and storytelling approach to wedding films and photography. After getting his start in Los Angeles photographing up and coming actors, Christian quickly found his true passion in capturing love stories. Robert began his career in fine arts, specializing in painting and drawing. He later transitioned his creative passions to creating cinematic films and photography.



I love anything visual art related; photo & video (of course), architecture, drawing, graphic design, industrial design, the list goes on. Prior to my career in weddings I worked in the corporate world and would take art classes on the weekends. This eventually inspired me to quit my day job to pursue this full time. It is still surreal to me that I get to do what I love for a living and meet so many amazing people in the process. When I’m not shooting I like to take epic road trips across the country with my family in search of the perfect sunset.



For as long as I could remember I've always loved to create. Whether it's painting, drawing, sculpting, photography, videography, it's the process that I love. As someone who has always been a movie fanatic my entire life, I live for those cinematic moments in film that gives me the chills. Along with photography, my goal is to create something for our couples that allows them to feel those emotions and relive their unforgettable moments through my work.



After finishing my degree in photography I have been excited to use my skills to capture beautiful love stories.
