I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based in Sonoma County, within close reach to the city of San Francisco, the dramatic coastline and the admired Napa Valley. For over five years I've been photographing the lives of people in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am also available for travel worldwide, with experience in destination weddings and events. Clients most recognize my candid imagery and attention to detail. The unnoticed moments I capture help them cherish everything about their wedding day, event or life experience. I offer a wide variety of packages and products, and can accommodate both the film and digital lover. While weddings are my focus, I also love providing artistic portraiture, romantic engagements and intimate maternity photos. No matter what I may be shooting, my heart and soul is always poured into it from start to finish. Currently, I reside in Petaluma with my cat Cleo and my dog Lewey. When I'm not busy with a camera, you'll probably find me outdoors enjoying my other passion: Mother Nature. Read less

Kristy of Volatile Photography is truly the best photographer a person could ever dream of. Kristy exceeded every expectation I had. She quickly responded to every email I sent her. She was extremely helpful in answering all the questions I had about the wedding day and I trusted all the feedback she gave me. She was flexible and understanding through the entire planning process. She took time to come to the wedding venue the night before at the rehearsal to get familiar with everybody in the wedding party and family members whom she would be shooting the following day. She scouted the best locations for pictures and made sure everything was set with the venue coordinator. She did all of this in such a natural and comfortable way that I was completely confident about the wedding day. The day of the wedding, she arrived early and was extremely helpful in keeping the time schedule we had planned. She managed all of my family and bridal party in such a professional and easy going way that not only were we able to get all the shots we wanted, but everyone enjoyed every moment of the process. Kristy is fun and makes everyone feel comfortable having their picture taken. During the ceremony and after, Kristy fit in so easily to every situation and never interrupted a single moment, although each important moment was captured. And then came the photographs. I will never be able to do justice in words the beauty of my wedding pictures. I have hundreds of stunning images that capture the love, emotion, fun, and beauty that was present at my wedding. There are so many candid pictures of the most meaningful moments of that day that I will be able to treasure forever.

I am eternally grateful for Kristy and all of the photographs I have of my special day. She is simply the best there is.

I can't say enough good things about Volatile Photography! Kristy is wonderful to work with.

We had (unfortunately) used a different photographer for our engagement photographs and found it to be a somewhat uncomfortable experience. So we went to our wedding coordinator to ask for help finding a photographer for the wedding day that we could enjoy working with.

Thank goodness that led us to Kristy! She is very responsive, very professional, and really was great to work with on our wedding day. The photo packages she offers are wonderful - we were so thanksful for great options!

Our wedding photographs are so beautiful, they just put a huge smile on my face - and my husbands! Looking through them it was like reliving every aspect of the day all over again - she exceeded our expectations and we would absolutely recommend her to everyone!!

We simply don't have enough words to express our thanks to Kristy. She was such an absolute joy to work with, from start to finish. My husband and I had a relatively limited budget for photography, but Kristy worked with us to make sure we could capture our wedding for the right price. She also shot our engagement session, which was a fantastic way to get to know her, and get comfortable in front of her camera (plus we got some killer photos out of the deal). When it came time to shoot our wedding, Kristy came through to capture all our special moments even though she had a the challenge of shooting our wedding on a truncated schedule. When my husband and I sat down to review all the beautiful photos, there was one after the other "frame-worthy" photograph--we didn't just have a few good shots--we had a whole photo album full of them! Kristy truly captured our happiness, while also bringing out the best of both of us (and our friends and family). She’s a lovely, warm individual who clearly has a passion for what she does, and we'd work with her again in a heartbeat.

Gorgeous, creative, magazine quality photos that captured all the elements of this special day, from family shots, ceremony pictures, fun action shots, and all the little details from cake and rings to flowers and decor. HIGHLY recommended!

I cannot tell you how happy I am that we were able to have Kristy come photograph our wedding for us. When we were deciding who to have come photograph our wedding I had shown my mother Kristy's photographs, knowing she would not be able to photograph our wedding since we were in Arizona. My mother had loved her photos so much that she had surprised me by arranging to have Kristy come to Arizona for our wedding. I just received the picture disc for my wedding today and am beyond thrilled at how the photos have turned out. They are the most beautiful wedding photos I have seen from any weddings I have attended. Kristy was great to work with and made me very comfortable!

Kristy was such a pleasure to work with! As a bride planning my own wedding, I wanted vendors that I could completely trust to do their job very well with little instruction from me. (I'm a perfectionist that wants to sit back and enjoy the wedding day.) Kristy was perfect in this regard and all of her pictures were so creative and captured everything I hoped. She also photographed our engagement session and gave us a wide variety of shots and locations around the wooded seashore. We will definitely use her again to capture the next big events in our lives.

Kristy photographed our wedding this past September and she was absolutely wonderful! Her online portfolio illustrates her technical skill and amazing eye for beautiful photos -- her pictures are vibrant, and she deftly captures details and expressions. Equally impressive to me, however, was her patient, kind and cheerful demeanor that immediately put us (and our families!) at ease. Neither my husband nor I are entirely comfortable being the center of attention, and Kristy helped us relax on the big day, while keeping everything running smoothly. She is fantastic and if you're able to book her, count yourself lucky 'cause you are in very good hands!!

Kristy did our engagement photos, and I do not think they could have turned out any better! From the very beginning, she was so helpful to me in figuring out what kind of feel we wanted for the shoot, and was never hard to get in touch with. The entire day was absolutely amazing, and felt so much more like a day with friends than a "photo shoot". She really captured our personalities and our relationship in our pictures...so it was just "us" through and through. She was so amazing to work with, and I would recommend her to ANYONE who wants a creative and talented eye for their special day!

When we hired Kristy, not only did we get an extremely talented photographer, but we got an awesome person as well. We were planning a destination wedding from Manhattan to get married at Chateau St. Jean when we hired Kristy. We went on her website to look at her pictures, and were blown away at how beautiful they were. Then, when we had our conference call with her, it confirmed even further why she was the best choice. She was gracious, flexible, and spot on at making sure she knew exactly what we wanted out of our photos.
The day of the wedding, when we first met, she had a way of instantly making me feel comfortable. She was the only other person up in the room with myself and my father before we began the processional, and I will never forget those few moments and how amazing she was with me. Throughout the wedding, she was so pleasant and easy to work with...after the wedding, I had multiple guests and family members comment on how much they liked her! She has a great instinct of finding unique and beautiful shots, while capturing emotions throughout the day. She is a MUST hire! And she is a wonderful person. I look forward to seeing her when we go back out to visit!

Kristy was an absolutely amazing photographer. She has a real talent of taking stunning photos, but most importantly takes all of your feedback and direction into account. She asks really great questions to not only help you get the photos you want, but also the overall experience and expectation of the photographer's role that you have for your event. She also makes a point to get to know the venue and lighting at the location of your event if she's never photographed there before. We were absolutely thrilled with our wedding photos and would highly recommend Kristy to anyone who is looking for someone to photograph their event.
