Hi! Thanks for stopping by. I am a wedding photographer who specializes in a more artistic and sometimes photojournalistic style of photography. My goal is to capture your day's most precious moments in a timeless image that you will enjoy for years to come. I strive to capture you as you really are and specifically look for emotion and humor when I'm shooting.

Although artistic and modern, I prefer a more classic look and do not overwork your images in Photoshop. My images have strong composition and good use of color and light. I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II and professional level lenses so you are guaranteed a good quality image. I also offer the finest quality prints, albums and keepsakes for your special day.

I am friendly, easy-going and have a great sense of humor, which I believe really allows me to mesh well with my clients. I am flexible and willing to accommodate your wishes and ideas. I hope that we get to work together soon! My packages start at $1900. Read less

My husband Blake and I loved working with Kristi! Kristi took our engagement photos, attended our wedding rehearsal, met with our wedding coordinator to get to know our venue, and she and her second photographer took the absolutely beautiful photos which captured our wedding day. She even took the time to meet with us after our wedding to show us wedding album options. Kristi always made herself available, was professional, very creative, and fun! She was able to produce wonderful images outside as well as inside our ceremony/reception venue (a Victorian style hotel). We are so happy with our engagement and wedding photos and feel that we received a great value for what we paid. We would absolutely recommend Kristi at Hillside Studios!

Kristi is an amazing photographer, and she is so much fun to work with! She took both engagement and wedding photos for us, and we could not be more pleased with her work. She is extremely professional but also very friendly and easy-going, and she is a very hard worker! We really appreciate how she captured the uniqueness of our wedding and us as a couple. She was also willing to travel a bit out of her normal area to photograph our wedding, for which we are so grateful. We highly recommend Hillside Studios for any photography needs!

We were so lucky to be a part of another wedding where Kristi was the photographer, we knew right away we wanted her to be the photographer at our wedding. We had such a wonderful experience with Kristi from start to finish. She took the time to learn about us so she could capture our wedding in a way that truly represented us as a couple. The end result was better than we could have expected. Everything she sent us was so well done, she is a true artist and we would highly recommended her. Having high quality wedding photos was one of the most important things to us when planning our wedding and Kristi definitely provided that for us.

I used Hillside Studios for both my engagement and wedding photos. The entire experience was fantastic and the pictures were exactly what we wanted! Kristi meets with you to get an idea of your theme and "look" for the pictures. I picked Kristi over the other photographers we met with because she understood that each couple/wedding is unique and wants a different feel and theme. She worked with my fiance and me very closely to ensure that she captured our theme and look in our pictures. She was open to pose/photography ideas and we were able to send her ideas from Pinterest to give her an idea of what we wanted. She researches the shoot locations (and scouts the wedding location) beforehand and creates a timeline/storyboard so that nothing is missed. She is great at posing people and getting candids and emotion out of people in pictures. I would highly recommend Hillside Studios to other brides!

We found Kristi of Hillside Studios at the Rocky Mountain Bridal show. She had some amazing photos of a couple in the Aspens that stopped me in my tracks. That photo was what I wanted for our wedding. We stopped and chatted with her. She was down to earth, attentive, and her past work demonstrated her creativity and talent. She was great to work with for both our engagement shoot and our wedding. She even braved a sleet/snow/raining mountain to photograph our ceremony (that included a really cold chairlift ride)! We were blessed to have her as part of our special day. She provided all the edited photos on a DVD in a personalized case. We will also be having her create our wedding album for our first anniversary and photograph our major life events in the future. Additionally, friends who attended our wedding just used her for their wedding this past month. I would definitely recommend Hillside Studios for your next special event!
