This pretty much sums up my personality and my photographs.

I'm a pretty direct communicator, and I’ve always preferred real connection over perfection.

You'll never find me over-editing your photos or turning them an odd shade of orange.

Instead, the light will look how the day felt and the back of my camera will reflect what I see.

Because from my perspective, you and your day are already beautiful.

I'lL Be SO MUCH MoRE
THAN YOuR HYPE GaL...

Yep - that’s me.

I'm an 8w7. I love gardening and sourdough baking. I'm pretty chill and am always honest when asked for an opinion.

I'll be with you more on your wedding day than your best friend, wedding planner or fiancé. It's true.

At some point, I'll probably play hairstylist, therapist and big sister. And yes, I will hype you up and encourage you. But I will also put my camera down, look you in the eyes and ask, "Do you need a minute?" 

Because even on a day that's filled with bliss, sometimes you just need to take a breath. And I'll be there for that too.

I NeED THIS FOR MY WEDDING

A FEW love NOTES

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.”

A FEW love NOTES

-Jillian

“She stepped into this whirlwind and was just such a source of calm for me. She was absolutely professional while putting me at ease and making me laugh. Her shot ideas at the venue were so creative and people raved about our photos. Our smiles were so natural that day because she just made us feel very present and very peaceful.”

Sarah + David

“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."

On your wedding day, I'll play detective - waiting and watching as scenes unfold. I'll listen for stories and observe family dynamics. Empathize with moments and respect boundaries.

But what I won't do is walk in and steal the show. Orchestrate a memory. Or pull you, your family or your friends out of a moment. Instead, I'll wait for the exchange, the look, the touch or the laugh and document the beauty of what IS.

I DON'T TRY TO MAKE ART

But it just so happens, I do it all the time.

- I want this for my family

- I want this for my wedding
