Choosing a wedding photographer is not a simple task.
What I offer is real emotion, edited in a natural way. I want the photos to reflect how you will remember the day. There are no Instagram-like filters or stale and cheesy poses here.
From giving you my best location ideas and portrait prompts, to recommending other lovely vendors to make your day absolutely breath-taking — I will help you make your day everything you’ve envisioned it to be, and will document it for you to cherish forever.
Heard a lot of vendor horror stories?
Well I can guarantee you won’t hear any about me!
I’m never gonna give you up. Never gonna let you down. Never gonna run around and desert you.
Did you just get Rick Rolled? I think yes.

So you’re probably wondering, “Who are you and why should I trust you with my wedding day?”
Well in short, I am Kristen.
In long, I am wedding photographer with a lot of photography education and experience behind me. (Snaps for putting my master’s degree to use!) Your big day is a once-in-a-lifetime event and I do everything in my power to help bring your vision into reality. While I don’t replace an event planner or day-of coordinator, my work does overlap with theirs. From checklists, vendor recommendations and timeline planning to boutonnière pinning, dress carrying, fluffing and bustling— I am a photographer who wears many hats and I have received dozens of glowing reviews for it. First and foremost though, I will make sure you have stunning photos to look back on. Everything else is just gravy.
“Would I rather be feared or loved? Easy. Both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me.” -Michael Scott - Kristen Tomkowid
