About Me

 My name is Joshua Christie and I am a traveling portrait and wedding photographer based in, but not limited to, northern New Jersey. I first got involved with cameras by messing around with a friend's DSLR, then officially through the media ministry at my church in 2014. In 2017 I started my very own photography company — Purpose Portraits — and I've gone on to see my work featured in The NY Times, Truly’s Shake My Beauty, and Braven’s Annual Impact Reports. Through the lens of the camera I seek to create memorable moments, capture them, and evidently captivate clients with images that last forever. In recent years I've been working on various creative projects, like creating fashion magazine -- Manasseh Magazine -- in the Spring of 2019, and launching my clothing brand, Called Out Kingdom, in 2020. You can check out my personal portfolio and other work I've done on my site:

We had such a great and fun time doing my engagement session. He was so open to trying and experimenting new poses and ideas while sharing his as well and I think that’s very important.

Joshua was very cordial and experienced, and made me extremely comfortable in my photoshoot session with him! I loved his creative vision and how memorable he has made this experience for me. He was very time-effective as well!
