KLK Photography is located in Southern California & available worldwide for Destination Weddings! "I focus on bringing out the personality of those being photographed. Releasing one's true emotions and self, allowing the sessions to be fun and comfortable. On the wedding day, I perform in a non-intrusive manner, allowing me to document many emotional, meaningful and real moments. It is so important to allow time for timeless yet creative portraiture. In order to create most of what you see on my website portfolio, I would direct you in a natural way to create a beautiful image that could possibly sum up the beauty of your wedding day in a single shot. My goal is to capture your love for each other along with your inner beauty. I want to tell your story, and with all of this, I hope to create a unique piece of art within each image."
“I strive to tell a story & create a piece of art.” – Kristi Klemens

Kristi and her husband Paul stepped in to photograph our wedding when our original photographer became ill and was unable to work. They even did the wedding pro bono and allowed him to keep the money we had paid him for his medical bills! So right away, they already earned 5 stars from us. But my adoration for them only grew on the day of the wedding. They were perfect. They were incredibly professional and yet also so friendly. It was joy to have them around all day and so much fun to work with. They happily set up and photographed the long list of requests from my family as well as came up with some great original ideas for shots that I loved. The pictures have turned out beautiful and I am so happy with everything. I can't say enough good things about these two!

Hiring KLK Photography was the #1 best decision I made for my wedding. One look at their website and you will see the quality of their work. Kristi and Paul added so much more than beautiful photography to our wedding day….
1. They are absolutely fun, kind, patient and happy. You will love being around them on your special day. We cannot wait to hang out with them again!
2. They know how to coach so the photos turn out amazing, even those people who have never been in front of a camera look like models.
3. Kristi acts as a stylist and a photographer! She went shopping with me to buy clothes for my engagement/boudoir. She makes the most beautiful accessories, thesoilandsea.com, which I wore for all of my photo shoots, including the wedding!
4. They provide a timeline for wedding day photography and they manage everything. All people have to do is show up!
5. They love to travel for destination weddings!
6. Their work is creative and they make a great team. It is absolutely necessary to have two shooters on your wedding day and nice to have a team that works together all the time.
7. Other vendors, wedding planners and the wedding party all love working with them.

My wife had seen Kristi’s work before and fell in love. Once I met Kristi, and her husband Paul, I knew they would be perfect for our destination wedding on the Big Island of Hawaii. Working with Kristi from KLK photography was everything we could have hoped for and more. From our very first meeting, Kristi and Paul were already getting ideas and giving us recommendations for shots that would look great. We ended up doing our engagement photos at a variety of different locations and Kristi and Paul took photos of us that we still can’t believe. The way they captured the emotion of the day and their style really is something unique and special. We were married on the Big Island and Kristi and Paul even flew out early to scout out the area and get ideas of what shots they wanted to get. Our wedding was not a normal destination wedding and we had over a 100 family and friends. It took a lot to manage all those family pictures and KLK did it with such ease. Everyone got to know Kristi and Paul and enjoyed having them around the whole week. Our big day turned out perfectly and we were able to get all the shots we wanted and more. Kristi and Paul had some really creative and unique ideas and we can’t wait to see the final pictures. I would definitely recommend KLK to any engaged couple as they really take the time to get to know you and your bride and I guarantee you will be more than happy with them. Kristi and Paul both have their own photographic styles but they play off each other well and it ends up being that much better for you and your bride. I cannot say enough great things about KLK, if you want wonderful photos just book with KLK!

Kristi and Paul are incredibly gifted photographers and great people to work with. They both have an amazing eye that captures photos in a unique, special and beautiful way. We hired them for our wedding and over and over again they showed us that they were a great choice. Our engagement pictures were beautiful and our wedding pictures are over the top. They are extremely hard working but yet, always have a smile on their face and love to laugh and put you at ease. I will never hire another photographer but the two of them. We love this couple and highly recommend them for all of your photography needs. Truly one of kind!!

Where do I even start when it comes to writing a review for KLK Photography? My wedding planner introduced me to Kristi and I knew she was the one the minute I met her. The quality of her work, her professionalism, amazing eye and fabulous personality made it very easy to pick her for our engagement shoot as well as our wedding (and will be planning a trash the dress session soon as well). My fiancée isn’t the biggest fan of doing photos, and working with Kristi and her husband Paul made it so comfortable for us. Within minutes we were both relaxed and had the time of our lives at our engagement shoot. The photos turned out amazing, and we were excited to have them do our wedding as well. During the time in between the shoot and my wedding, Kristi and Paul did the photography for the annual gala the non-profit I work for puts on. This was the first time we had professional photography done and it made all the difference in the world for publication afterwards. Then came the big wedding day…they were amazing. Their visions and their eyes saw shots that none of us could have imagined. We got shots in locations at Pelican Hill that no one else has been able to get, and it was amazing. They made all of the staged photos feel comfortable and unstaged. Our wedding party is a funny group and none of them are used to photos, but Kristi and Paul made it feel so natural for everyone, and it worked out perfectly. I haven’t seen ALL the photos yet, but even just with the 50 or so we have seen I couldn’t be more impressed. I can’t wait to keep working with KLK in the future!

I just met Kristi last weekend when I did a boudoir photoshoot for my husband. I was really nervous about doing it and had been researching photographers and Kristi was the first one to to actually make me feel comfortable enough to sign up to do it! She let me ask as many questions as I needed to in order to feel comfortable! When I arrived on Sunday for the photo shoot, she took time to ask me the style of photography that I prefer and let me show her the type of photos that I like. She also helped me pick what outfits would work best! She was SO great at directing me and was incredibly detail oriented when it came to my hair and posing! She took way more time with me than I am sure she intended just to make sure we got the right shot. She also has an AWESOME studio with so many different options. It was so much easier than trying to find my own location! I wish I had met Kristi before my wedding! She is such a sweet person, easy to work with, and amazingly talented as well!

As my wife and I were looking for a photographer for our wedding the process became quite tedious and challenging. However, we did love the pictures which came out from my good friend's wedding and decided to reach out to her. This was Kristi! What caught our eye was her style and artistry. After our first meeting we hit it off and we felt really comfortable with her. Her husband Paul is great too and they make an awesome combo! The results of both our engagement and wedding photos speak for themselves! A must recommend, please reach out to her!

Lovely perfection. From even before our engagement, my husband and I had settled on Kristi at KLK Photography. Knowing her from our Michigan past and following her success and ability to take wedding photography to a new level, we were more than blown away by everything she has to offer. With as busy a schedule as she keeps, she manages to always respond promptly to questions, phone calls, and emails, all with a sweet and smile attitude....she cares deeply about capturing the style you want to create, and she captures it effortlessly. The images she provided with us from our special day are continually looked at daily. She went above and beyond what we hoped for, and after all the planning, it is such a relief to have such great memories to be able to page through. Kristi and Paul were so easy to work with and were always helping with every part of the day, be it from suggestions in how to move efficiently and sneaking us away for a little bride and groom shoot.
High praise for such a wonderful girl, and spectacular photographer.

I really believe Kristi is one of the best in her craft and professional style. Being a perfectionist, I became a true bridezilla during the wedding process and would not settle for less than the best. My husband and I knew we had to have her do our wedding after seeing our the work she did for a friend's wedding, and I am 110% certain that we chose the right photographer. We will cherish our photographs forever. Not only is she an amazing photographer, her personality is also effortless and amazing. LOVE HER!

Kristi was so awesome from day 1. I had interviewed several photographers in So Cal, but after my first meeting Kristi, I was sure I wanted to go with her. Her portfolio was amazing and she was super friendly and easy to get along with even from the beginning! She was open to different ideas for the engagement shoot and tried to be as flexible as she could in the midst of her busy schedule!

Her wedding photography style was exactly what I was looking for in my wedding photos -- she provided all the "traditional" wedding shots as well as really artistic portraits that I was really looking for. After our awesome e-session as well as wedding day experience, we decided to do a Trash The Dress shoot with her. The result was amazing and I could not have asked for anything more in my photographer. I've posted several of my wedding photos by Kristi on my personal blog, and all my friends RAVE about how great the photos turned out.

Very highly recommended!!

Kristi was the first vendor we booked and loved her back then and love her even more now! Kristi has been a joy to work with leading up to our wedding day.

She, Paul Bennett (of Blue Sky Videos), and our 2nd shooter, Melissa McClure showed up early the morning of our wedding day and immediately started shooting. Because of timing, sunlight, etc, Kristi and I decided to do away with traditional pics after the ceremony and chose to shoot pre-ceremony pics and a first reveal -- we couldn't have made a better choice! Mu husband and I were able to spend a few hours alone taking pictures before the walk down the aisle and before the madness of the reception - where literally, you have zero time alone to just relish in the fact that you are married and talk about the day's events.

Kristi had teasers in my inbox within 48 hours after our wedding!

Now it's the long and impatient wait until all our pictures are done -- but I'm positive they will be worth the wait. If we were to plan all over again, I'd definitely book Kristi Klemens and Melissa McClure all over again!

I can't believe I took a whole year before writing this review for Kristi. However, the service that I got from her is SOOO AMAZING that I still can't stop talking about her to all my friends! We got married in Sept 2009 and we in fact did not hire Kristi to be our wedding photog. Unfortunately we had a VERY BAD experience with our wedding photog which left me extremely unsatisfied with our wedding photos. In order to make up for that, we decided to find another photog to do a "trash the dress" session and Kristi was the one we ended up picking! She is so nice and easy-going - we had an instant connection with her right after the 1st meeting with her. And not to mention that she is extremely flexible and in fact met us in San Diego (where we lived at the time) even though she works in the OC area. We wanted to do the TTD session before the weather got cold, but both Kristi and we had really busy schedule in the next couple months so we never firmed up a date at the beginning. In November, we were able to find a free day which Kristi was supposed to be free, and contacted her and she immediately said OKAY even though we didn't give her too much notice (something like 3 days in advance)! The day of the photo shoot.... it was SOOOO AMAZING. She is EXTREMELY talented! I'm quite shy in front of camera but she made me very comfortable and could just be myself. We wanted a combination of different backgrounds which meant traveling to different locations. Kristi was extremely accommodating and took us from Laguna downtown, to the Montage beach, and then ended in a field with cool scenery and lighting in San Juan Capistrano. I finally felt so relieved and happy that we had shoot almost everything that I had in mind. Just a week or 2 later, Kristi had finished editing our photos and they came out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! We are so in love with all of them.... so much more than our wedding photos! We are so happy that we decided to do the TTD shoot with her and would DEFINITELY recommend her to anyone!

I can't believe I took a whole year before writing this review for Kristi. However, the service that I got from her is SOOO AMAZING that I still can't stop talking about her to all my friends! We got married in Sept 2009 and we in fact did not hire Kristi to be our wedding photog. Unfortunately we had a VERY BAD experience with our wedding photog which left me extremely unsatisfied with our wedding photos. In order to make up for that, we decided to find another photog to do a "trash the dress" session and Kristi was the one we ended up picking!

Kristi is an amazing photographer! We really could not be happier with the photos from our wedding and our engagement shoot--they are unique, artistic, beautiful. Not only is Kristi extremely talented, but she is also very easy to work with. It was important to us that our photographer blend in with our guests and friends because we've been to weddings where the photographer basically orders everyone around--well, Kristi was so friendly and easy-going that most of our guests assumed she was a friend! Of course, we still wanted her to get wonderful pictures of moments we remembered and moments we might have missed--and she more than surpassed our expectations on that count as well! I don't know how I'm going to pick among the photos she sent--they are all so good! Any photographer can take one excellent photo--Kristi gave us hundreds of excellent photos! Best of all, Kristi really listens to you and works with you. We didn't want that many pictures of us--we wanted her to focus more on getting lots of pictures of our guests having fun. We figured we'd sacrifice getting that amazing picture of us, but we didn't have to--Kristi was able to get lots of beautiful pictures of us and then, as we wished, get lots of great pictures of our guests as well. We also had a fairly untraditional wedding and, unlike some vendors we talked to, Kristi was completely excited about our ideas, and made sure to get lots of pictures of the different things we incorporated that were special to us (she brought two wonderful assistants to make sure she didn't miss anything). The best recommendation I can give is that everyone who sees the pictures says, "wow, you had a wonderful photographer"! And I feel proud for finding her! Kristi is fantastic--I'd recommend her to anyone (I've already recommended her to a friend for whom I'm going to be maid of honor in a few months).

I don't even know how to put into words just how wonderful Kristi Klemens is! She traveled to St. Lucia for our wedding and provided us with 4 days of beautiful pictures that we will always cherish. The quality of her work is exceptional and I have never seen wedding photos as beautiful as ours. I have friends who had gotten married before us that said they wished their wedding was after ours so they could've stolen our photographer! I feel bad because they liked their pictures until they saw ours!

Kristi was always in the right spot at the right time. There were moments that I cannot believe she captured because they happened in a split second and the pictures were just stunning! Every emotion my husband and I felt, as well as our guests, was reflected in our pictures.

On top of her phenomenal work, Kristi is just an awesome person. She blends into a group very easily, but always remains professional--a very tough line to walk. It was quite impressive! She is super sweet and so pleasant to work with.

I highly highly highly recommend Kristi Klemens to anyone who is looking for a photographer. Whether it's for a wedding, engagement shots, pregnancy pictures, or any important event in your life. Her work is a step above the rest and I promise you will be super happy with your choice. Thank you for EVERYTHING Kristi!

WOW is all I can say about Kristi and her amazing talent! We hired her immediately after meeting with her because her bright personality just fit with us right away. We just received our engagement photo teasers back and they are so awesome! Kristi is such a great artist. We absolutely can not wait to see what she does for our wedding in October! Kristi is, by far, the best investment we've made for our wedding! I HIGHLY recommend this photographer!

UPDATED review:
Our wedding has now passed and we've received our teaser photos from Kristi and I continue to be amazed by her! She is so, so talented and hard working. She worked tirelessly throughout the wedding and was everywhere all at once. But I can honestly say that I don't remember seeing her much during the wedding...a good thing! :) She caught every moment but we didn't even notice she was there - she's that good! I would, without a doubt, recommend Kristi as a photographer. She is sweet, energetic, talented, and a perfectionist. We love Kristi! :)

She is incredibly talented and diligent, has a great artistic eye, and has the best energetic personality. We didn't want the standard cookie cutter, posed wedding photos so Kristi was the perfect choice for us. She is artistic, photojournalistic, and creative. I would have no hesitation in recommending KLK Photography!!

Kristi is too fabulous to describe. She clearly has a passion for what she does and it shows. Many photographers are good out there, but her love for her works trumps all the others. I was impressed with her prices and her quickness to getting back to me when needed. The compliments are still coming in on our wedding pictures, and already many of my friends have booked her from just seeing our pictures. If you are a bride unsure of who to use for your photography you must give Kristi a call. A wedding is a once in a lifetime event that you don't get to "do over". So make those photos fantastic and ones that you will want to show off for a lifetime!

I absolutely loved working with KLK Photography. Kristi and Paul were such a pleasure to work with. Kristi really has a way of making you look your absolute best in all of your pictures. I just love her creativity. Her photographs are so much more than just a picture. They are more like art. Kristi and her husband Paul were such a joy to work with. I really liked how they find a way of capturing thousands of pictures without you or your guests ever realizing that they are there. I would definitely recommend KLK Photography to anyone. You won't be disappointed.

I was not able to use Kristi for my wedding (we had already booked our photographer when we found her), but I was so excited to have Kristi shoot some beautiful boudoir photographs which I was able to give to my husband-to-be on our wedding day. Kristi is just amazing with a low-key style and a very artistic eye. Her portraits are just amazing and she has a lot of fun with what she does. I hope to work with her again and recommend everyone to her wonderful work. This girl is AMAZINGLY talented!
