“KRISTEN WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! She photographed our wedding in early April, and even though it was a little chilly, she helped us with wonderful poses that kept us warm! She knew just how to get some adorable angles, and made the whole day very relaxed with how prepared she was. Very professional, and I am SO happy with how the pictures turned out!”


“Kristen was so energetic and worked hard to make sure we looked amazing.  She had ideas and poses for us, but was super flexible and open to requests. She was personable and just so easy to work with! You can tell she’s a natural and loves what she does! And the photos she gave us were amazing! So pleased with them, and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to have worked with her!”



“KRISTEN IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST. She provided impeccable photos that captured the day perfectly. She was lively and fun and kept things light and enjoyable. This was the first time for my husband and I to be behind the lens and she made us feel like rockstars. My wedding happened 3 weeks ago and I already have the photos back and I can’t believe how wonderful the quality is. 110/100 would recommend and use her in the future for other photos!! THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH.”



Oh my gosh. Kristen was absolutely wonderful! She understood completely what we were looking for and she took complete control and was very organized and purposeful in how she set everything up! Our wedding photos turned out amazing and we got all the shots we wanted (I still look at them and think WOW NO WAY THOSE ARE OUR WEDDING PHOTOS!) She was so easy to work with and she made us all feel comfortable. Definitely definitely DEFINITELY choose Kristen for alllllllllll your photo needs!


I felt confident that Kristen would capture all the special, sweet, fun, and deep moments of our wedding and she did! She was well prepared by providing a spreadsheet and questionnaire to fill out before the big day to assure us she was ready to go! Kristen brought life and energy to the pictures and made both my husband and I feel very comfortable. I love how she is both sweet and confident. She was gentle in spirit and speech and yet kept us on time and gave clear directions as to what needed to happen next. She was patient and relaxed even in time crunches which shows her ability to be flexible. I feel blessed to have had Kristen as our photographer because she created pictures that will last a lifetime! Yahoo!


Kristen is fantastic! I loved how she let us be natural rather than "posing" and caught so many good candid shots. She is talented and definitely has an eye for things! She is super fun to work with - I highly suggest her!
