About Us

Hi, my name is Christie Gibson, and I am the main photographer at Beyond the Darkroom Photography.  I am located in American Fork, Utah, and I excel and absolutely LOVE to do Family and Wedding photography.  I am open to the idea of traveling out of state for shoots, in fact, I really enjoy the adventure.

Photography is my passion.  I seriously love what I do.  Mostly, I love getting amazing shots of people.  Anyone really.  I have a theory, that EVERYONE is photogenic, but it is up to the photographer to be strategic about lighting, angle, and the type of facial expression works best for you.  This is a very unique combination for everyone, and I find it absolutely gratifying to find the perfect combination for my clients.   And yes, I do find it!  Have you ever wondered what to do, or how to smile or pose in front of a camera?  Well no worries, I will direct you in everything you need to do, whether it be acting natural, to posing.  The results will be, in my humble opinion, your absolute most amazing combination.   And I will also include variety.  With approximately 15 years of experience under my belt, I never get tired of trying new things, so expect that a shoot might take a slightly unexpected turn.  You never know! 

Next, let me introduce you to Mike.  He is my dear husband, who has helped me get to where I am today.  He is the backbone behind a lot of the business, and he handles the website, scheduling, payments, and everything that happens behind the scenes.  If you want to schedule something, or if you have a question, you might just end up talking with him.  Don't worry though, he ensures that I am very up to date on every client he interacts with.  

Feel free to browse through our images, and hopefully you find some of them to be unique, different, and breathtaking. And if you have any questions at all, feel free to let me (or Mike) know, and we will get back with you as quickly as we possibly can.  

Christie and Mike
