Kristina is a rare photographer- she has vision, great timing, real love for what she does and an amazing eye. The photos from our wedding in May reflect that completely; everyone is struck by the affection and joy in the day. And everyone looks really, really good; bridal party people and of course, the bride were ready to be really self critical but everyone across the board looks phenomenal. She also made every single person feel creative, happy and spontaneous when shooting; it was so great to have someone there who seemed not only like the pro in charge, but a really awesome guest.
Working with her on the logistical level was also a pleasure- this is second nature to her and it was great to give a set of directions (some vague, some specific) and then forget about it. I never worried this was a vendor relationship to be managed.
I cried when I saw my pictures and couldn't wait to share them. Is there anything more a bride could want?

Much like Private User below, I was married over a year ago, and my wife and I have still not received our photos. Kristina has been unresponsive for months at a time. We have filed a lawsuit, and Kristina has been served. Unfortunately, we are not confident we will ever receive our photos or a refund. She has taken advantage of us. We recommend all couples consider this information when considering Kristina as their wedding photographer. We are more than happy to describe our experiences in detail.

Our experience with Kristina has been nothing but amazing. We cannot stop looking out our photographs, each time brings us to tears. She is professional, fun and above all, talented. We hired her based on a recommendation of a friend and would recommend her to anyone and everyone. Thank you, Kristina, for everything you've done for us. We cannot wait to work with you again!

A little over a year and a half and six months no contact. Ordered "free" pictures never got them took her six months just to upload them online and still have not one photo of my wedding on my wall. Downright depressing going to small claims court or investigative reporter on Monday.

My wife and I were married on 4/20/13 and have not received anything but excuses from Kristina...and that is when she bothers to reply at all.
Like other reviewers have mentioned here, Kristina was terrific leading up to the wedding with the exception of having to reschedule our engagement photo session due to her contracting food poisoning. Seems illness, pregnancy, and crappy computing skills are par for the course with this one.
Day of the wedding she was great. We even got to see our photos on her blog (not surprised being this is a marketing tool for her) a few weeks after the event.
Admittedly, my wife and I dragged our feet a little getting back to her with the photos we wanted her to edit, but once we did she had nothing but excuses for us. It is now over a year since our wedding. Wish I read these reviews before we hired her.

Our experience with Kristina started off great but ended up being really frustrating. Our 6-month anniversary is tomorrow and we still don't have our copies of the photos. We didn't even ask for an album--just a DVD of the photos. If you don't read any further than this, here's my overall statement: I'm not saying don't book her, I'm just saying don't expect her to be responsive once you've paid her, and don't expect to get your photos for a LONG time after your wedding.
She was recommended to us by friends who got married a few months before we did, and they were referred in the same way. All three couples have had the same experience. She's great leading up to and during the wedding, but once you'd paid her, she becomes very evasive. She will post a few photos on her blog, and if you bug her enough, she'll put your proofs up on the website, but once it comes to actually editing and delivering them, it's a nightmare. All excuses and no action. She is self-admittedly struggling to make this business work for her, and it shows. It's a shame, because she is very talented...she was fun, helpful and easy-going all the way through the big day, but then she just drops the ball in favor of other projects, assumingly the ones that bring her more money. My initial review was 100% positive, but I just couldn't in good conscience leave in unrevised given our experience.

My husband and I have been married a little over a week and are still reeling from a fantastic VT wedding. Kristina captured the day so beautifully and originally. We had some unusual elements at our wedding such as a live hawk, very large wedding party, several specific shoot requests in addition to the traditional. When the day of proved more hectic than my best laid plans Kristina rolled with it and maximized her time and kept the photo shoot on track. What we loved about Kristina in addition to her professionalism was that she was very accommodating and easy to work with. She was always shooting and observing, but never intrusive so seamlessly blended in with the party while capturing beautiful images. We will definitely be hiring Kristina again for future photo needs.

I, too, must amend my previous positive review.

I am having many of the same issues as other reviewers here. We are now a year and a half post-wedding and I have nothing to show for it. I take partial blame for the overall delay because I did not finalize all of my "favorites" for editing until a few months after the wedding. Never having been given a deadline from Kristina, however, I didn't think this was an issue and was told that it would only be 3 or 4 weeks from that point to get my disc. It is now many months since submitting my favorites and still...nothing.

Pre-wedding and day-of Kristina was wonderful to work with. Post-wedding she has been unresponsive and full of excuses (many of the same ones I see that others have been receiving as well). At least I'm not alone. I have reached out to Kristina in a final attempt to have her complete the terms of our contract. Should she not deliver, I will pursue whatever legal options I have to rectify her default.

Please save yourself a headache and book someone else.


Previous Review:
Kristina Hill not only captured our day in beautiful and creative ways, she was a DELIGHT to work with from day one! I met Kristina through an acquaintance and even though she was the only photographer I met with, I knew right away that she was the one for us, so I went with my gut. My husband and I are performers as are most of our friends, and Kristina totally "got" what we were all about. She went right along with us and we had a lot of fun, which resulted in amazing photos! Kristina was always available to us, even offering to have a Skype meeting in the weeks before my wedding. I cannot recommend Kristina enough. Thank you!
