Some photographers take beautiful pictures but never get to know you. Last time I checked, this was YOUR wedding, right?

Others have a couple of amazing images on Pinterest, but you can’t seem to find pictures from a real wedding. What’s that about?

And then there are the ones that just reply to your email with their price guide. Um, can we ‘date’ before we get married!?

i'M A "WHaT YOu SeE iS WHAT yOu GeT" TYPE of GIrL

Yep - that’s me. I hope my life and photographs reflect that. I'm easy going, corny...perhaps a bit goofy. I laugh easily and don't take myself too seriously.

You two are beautiful souls. You deserve to feel heard. You deserve to have someone take real interest in your day. I promise that if you choose to celebrate your love with me, I won’t take it for granted.

After all, the way you love each other and the way you love your people is what inspires me to do this work. (Well, that and a little real crime podcast on the late night drives home.)

You’re why I’m living the dream of my 17-year-old self: To be part of something big – without taking center stage. To be the tangible love of the Lord. To be His hands. To go above and beyond for the people in my life.

And hopefully, that now includes you.

“Some people have the innate ability to connect with people and understand them even if you haven’t known them for long, and Kristen definitely has that.


Kelsey + McDaniel

“We are so in love with our pictures. They are an exact reflection of who we are and how we feel about each other.”


Allie + Victor

“I am a wedding photographer myself so choosing the photographer for my own wedding was a very important decision for me. We just received our wedding gallery from Kristen and I just have to say that I don’t have enough wall space for how many photos we are in love with.”

"Kristen brings out the best in everyone. She directs you and helps you in the process so you don't have to think or worry about anything. Kristen and her camera are pure MAGIC."

“Kristen, directly and with care, took us through the process of securing her as a vendor. She helped us understand what to expect without giving us “information overload.” She simply was on ‘POINT.’ ”

I prefer quality, regardless of the name brand – and real connection over perfection. Looking perfect isn't my brand – and it's certainly not what I expect of you or your wedding day. When clients ask me “what’s your plan if it rains on my wedding day?”I just say “we roll with it.” I’ve shot in snow, rain, and blistering heat. 

There's magic in the spontaneity of it all.


I see the way light falls on people differently than others. There's an edginess that comes from the way I sculpt with it. I'm always trying to find a way to break the mold and tell a story.

Whether we’re at your engagement shoot or you are 2-hours in to your reception, fully wild on the dance floor, I'll see the way the light hits you. And I'll know that one day your children or grandchildren will have this very photo framed in their house. And they'll smile with a little pride at how cool you really were.


I believe magic can happen with good light (and a little bit of Drake).
