I love to portray natural emotion in my photography, and I find that weddings are all wonderful opportunities to catch these genuine moments. With a fresh perspective, I portray unique interactions, expressions, and relationships in all of my images. One of my favorite things about being a photographer is watching as people begin to relax in front of the camera; it is so fun to capture natural moments as individuals interact with their surroundings and with one another!

Whenever possible, I enjoy taking a more photojournalistic approach to my photography. I do take a variety of posed shots, but I focus more intently on capturing real moments as they happen. I prefer for each photograph to look and feel natural. Read less

Kristen came highly recommended by a mutual friend. I had already seen some of her work and I was so happy when I learned that she had our wedding day available. Kristen is an amazing photographer. She is wonderful at capturing moments and light. The pictures look so dreamy and represent our day so perfectly. It will be hard to choose ones to frame! Kristen was there for us since our first meeting. She sent messages to check in, answered questions and even sent us a cute cookie and care package to get us excited about our big day. Her personality is so fun and bubbly. The second shooter she brought with her was wonderful to work with as well. I definitely recommend booking Kristen for your wedding!

AWESOME. AWESOME. AWESOME. I can't say enough about Kristen. I've worked with other photographers for events before and she is hands down the most proactive, communicating, professional photographic artist I've ever worked with. She sent a Fancy cookie hand made with our wedding date congratulating us, a care-package to remind us to take a breath, and then a collection of pictures so stunning I honestly can't begin to decide which to print. She was so accommodating with scheduling and ensured we captured all the fun and love and joy of the day. LOVE her!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Kristen is AMAZING. I wrote a long review and attempted to copy/paste here- apparently there is a character limit, so here is the abbreviated version (which is hard, there is so much to say!!)

From the very beginning, Kristen was a true professional. When we met her in person, I KNEW it was a perfect match. Kristen is energetic and genuine. She listened to us, asked us what we were looking for, and spent time just getting to know us. She explained her process and answered every question we had. Kristen goes the extra mile during the process- she checked in on us multiple times, and even mailed us a care package!! Kristen knew that we had been so busy with wedding planning, she sent us a sweet card and some goodies... that's the type of person that she is, and she truly cares so much. I used her for a boudoir session prior to the wedding- it was SO much fun. I was a little hesitant at first, but Kristen made me feel comfortable and the pictures turned out AMAZING! We laughed about it and had such a fun time! The engagement session also turned out amazing- Kristen photographed us at one of our favorite outdoor places- she captured the afternoon sun and the leaf change PERFECTLY- seriously, the pictures are amazing!!! Kristen even expedited the engagement pictures to us because it was so close to our wedding date - again, she goes the extra mile. At the wedding, she brought a second shooter and was able to capture all of those little details that were happening. She was VERY present, but no one felt as though there was a 'camera in their face'. She was methodical and systematic in taking the family pictures- she capture all of the combinations of people and families- working tireless as the sun was setting. Kristen does her homework- she knew the names of all of the family members and wedding party too- its that personal touch that makes such a difference! We WILL be using Kristen again, and we most HIGHLY recommend her to anyone!!!!

We love Kristen! I can't say enough nice things about her. She just got us and was amazing to work with. I couldn't be more happy with the photos she took-- she was so thorough and has an awesome eye. Not only is she a talented photographer but she is one of the kindest people I have ever met. I loved having her there with us on the big day-- she was such a positive presence. I would recommend her to any bride looking for a photographer who is sweet, has a warm presence , is a great listener and truly knows how to capture the entire day the exact way you remember it :)

We absolutely loved having Kristen as our photographer. There were a couple of key criteria we were looking for in a wedding photographer, and Kristen exceeded all of these. First of all, her pictures are beautiful. She really knows how to capture your best side - but still make it look like you. We felt very strongly about taking more classic and traditional pictures - nothing cheesy, hokey or that we would be embarrassed about 10 years down the road. That totally fit Kristen's style. Second, and perhaps just as important though, was how easy Kristen was to work with. Her personality fit exactly what we wanted - she is calm, but incredibly positive and encouraging. During the wedding, she completely blended in - we never knew she was there, but when we wanted her to take a specific picture, she seemed to magically appear. We used Kristen for both our engagement pictures and our wedding - and we couldn't be happier with both events.

Kristen is AMAZING!

I am SO SO SO happy that I found her during my search for a wedding photographer.

From the very first phone conversation that I had with her, I felt instantly comfortable with her. She was very thorough and helped me to come up with a schedule for my special day. Not only that, but she was always available to me, responding to emails and looking at photos that I liked. Also, she sent adorable surprises after booking/the week prior to our big day. These personal touches make her services even more memorable!

My husband and I were married on a Wednesday in a very small, intimate ceremony. Kristen is so personable and friendly, it feels like you are talking to an old friend that you've known forever. She made us feel comfortable during the entire photography session and was very easy going as the schedule changed (as it usually does on wedding days).

She put up a sneak peek the day after the wedding and after seeing those photos, we are even more excited to see the finished product in the upcoming months!

If you are in the area and you want a fantastic photographer who will make you feel great and produce beautiful photos, I would highly, highly recommend Kristen!

Kristen was such a pleasure to work with! I strongly recommend hiring Kristen for not only her stunning photos, but her personality as well. Kristen was so cheerful and made taking pictures (something I normally don't like) really fun. Her prices were very reasonable considering the package includes a second shooter. I thought it might be awkward to have someone follow us around for hours on end, but Kristen blends in seamlessly and is a joy to be around. Definitely a no-brainer to hire Kristen!

Kristen was so AMAZING!!!! She did such a perfect job with the bridal photo shoot and the wedding. She even sent 2 sweet care packages prior to the wedding - she seriously goes above and beyond in all aspects of the day. She arrived early, stayed late, was extremely professional, was so sweet to everyone (even when everyone wasn't listening and people were telling her how to do her job), the list goes on...always while keeping a calm & energetic attitude and big smile on her face. She didn't miss a single detail and was such a positive fun person to have around! Her blog posts were perfect too and I just loved all her pictures. They look natural and very bright & beautiful. I can't say enough good things about her...I definitely recommend her to other brides!!!! :)

I can't even begin to tell you how much we loved Kristen and her work! She is incredibly thoughtful, easy to work with, and talented. She does exceptional work and goes above and beyond - prior to the wedding, during the wedding, and even after the wedding. My husband and I were highly satisfied with her and I would definitely recommend her to anyone. You would be extremely lucky to have her join you on your wedding day!
