Christa Rae Settle
Co-owner & Photographer
Christa’s love for all things music and photography have collided into an extreme passion of documenting artists from on stage to behind the scenes. Her photograph of Ke$ha earned her a Rammie Award for Best Pier Six Pavilion Photo in 2014 from Rams Head Group. Music inspires her so much and is a huge part of who she is. From the lyrics of a song to how someone strums their guitar, to how an artist dresses on stage, a live performance is always so mesmerizing! She feels most alive in a photo pit, photographing a live show in under 10 minutes. Some of her favorite performers she’s photographed so far have been: Iggy Azalea, Ke$ha, Imagine Dragons, FUN., John Legend, Jonas Brothers, ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic, and many, many more. When she’s not photographing a concert, she’s most likely photographing a wedding or another type of lifestyle shoot! You can check out her wedding and lifestyle work on her personal website, Christa Rae Photography.
