Christian Pleva Images is a premier Wedding Photography Studio in Boston and New England. Our style of wedding photography is deeply rooted in wedding photojournalism, influenced by fine-art and fashion photography. The result is creative, clean and crisp wedding photography that’s romantic, fun, and emotional. We pride ourselves on not just being photographers, but rather artists creating unique and expressive imagery.

We believe that weddings are a social celebration of a very sacred commitment.  We feel honored to be participants in every wedding we shoot and treat both the day and the people involved with the highest level of respect.  Most of all, weddings are a day filled with beauty and magic that emerges effortlessly.  We believe our job is to capture that magic in the most authentic way- unobtrusively, honestly, joyfully.


We are a cutting edge photography studio, offering the most recent advances in the photography field.  We are always well versed in the latest wedding trends and bride preferences.  Our approach is contemporary and always in the best of taste.  We strive for the perfect combination of timeless elegance and fresh style.

Our focus is on capturing dramatic, architecturally artistic images with a mix of journalistic style photography.  We limit the number of posed and staged photographs and try instead to highlight the laughter, tears and passion that you and your guests will be feeling without our heavy involvement.  We understand that each couple is unique in their style, personality and biography and strive to produce images that reflect that individuality.  The era of assembly line coverage and common, ordinary albums is over.  We understand our client needs for exclusive, classic products and exceed their expectations.  We represent the grace, distinction and style that is possible in wedding photography.

So, a little about us...... 

We are a partner team that both work and reside in the historic North End neighborhood of downtown Boston.  I'm Melissa, the studio manager, second shooter, boudoir photographer and overall...the boss!  Shhh...just don't tell Christian.  I have a passion for working with couples and helping our clients feel pampered and comfortable throughout the year they spend with us in their planning process.  I accompany Christian on each and every shoot and wedding to shoot as well as keep everyone to our usually tight timeline! 

Christian was a toddler when photography was first introduced to him, inspired by his grandfather, who was a World War II photographer.  He can remember watching in awe as he went to work in his dark room and couldn't wait to have a camera in his own hands.  For a long time it was a rewarding hobby that he couldn't get enough of, until it got to a point that it was consuming all of his time and he decided to do it full time and live out his passion.  He loves street photography, looking for emotion, gestures and irony as well as landscape and architecture.  After jumping in fully he found that combining all of these elements was the perfect building blocks for wedding photography and his passion grew once he started working with couples.  We moved from Las Vegas to Boston in 2013 and have been loving the city backdrops, and New England as a whole has been amazing with everything being so picturesque!  Our style is not traditional, but instead we are inspired by the grit of street photography, the elegance of fashion photography and the emotion of the couples we work with.  The result is an artistic flair that we hope feels unique to each of our clients and they treasure as artwork.  We take pride in offering our clients the type of wedding photography they are looking for along with a boutique experience.  Its one thing to take pictures, it’s another to create beautiful art for you and make you feel relaxed and pampered in the process.

Our clients are typically looking for artwork for their home vs. snapshots, and that is what draws them into our studio. We are not ones to simply deliver a disc full of images that more often than not, will end up in a drawer with old batteries and misc cell phone cords.  We want your images to live in an album, to be cherished,  and more importantly be on the walls of your home!
