Hi there! I’m Kristen, an expert wedding & portrait photographer.

I live for snickerdoodles, have a crude sense of humor, am a closet Swiftie, and believe a sunset at the beach can cure the worst of moods.


I was a bride planning a wedding with our closest friends and family in our hometown. It felt like a dream. Until it... wasn't. 

Two days before the wedding, our photographer bailed. Yep, that's right. One of my biggest fears came true. We suddenly found ourselves scrambling and calling every photographer I could find to see if they were available. Much to our dismay, everyone was either booked or way beyond our budget. Heartbroken, we had to accept that we would not have the memories of this day preserved in the way we'd always envisioned.

Then I finally found my purpose, relieving all the worries for my clients surrounding their photography experience.

I have spent the last 14 years dedicated to ensuring my clients have an affordable photography option that will allow them to enjoy their photography experience. To have the assurance they need to know that their photographer is going to do more than just show up. I want them to know I'll be there to answer questions about timelines, provide vendor recommendations, what to wear, help prepare you and your partner for engagement sessions, how to keep the littles engaged, or handle sensitive family situations with grace, and ultimately know that you are taken care of and loved. 

Cinnamon vanilla creamer, coffee, and a rainy morning...the best part of waking up, is coffee in your cup.

I live for fuzzy blankets. For real, I own like 50. Who doesn't love comfy, fuzzy blankets?


Sparkles make my heart happy. I love staring at glittery things, from the sea to the pretty wedding rings.


I don't have a single favorite tv show....I have MANY favorites. 


I live in t-shirt dresses on the daily. They make me look put together, and have the comfort of pjs. #lifehack
