ue to us and she really captured the essence of the day. My husband did not want to take a ton of staged photos during the day and we let her know ahead of time. We also had never taken profession photos before- not even for our engagement. She was able to take these beautiful photos without having it be overwhelming for either of us. She had such an eye to capture the scenery and our love, along with touching moments with our friends and families. We have so many we love it was hard to choose what to frame. The way she captured us together and with our wedding parties just made me want to cry- the photos are so special to us. And she was able to take our large group photos for our families efficiently- so everyone was happy! Just check out Kristen's IG or website and I think you will be convinced to book.

She knew how to blend into the background, joke with the wedding party, and organize family for the group photos. When we had some last-minute changes in photos, Kristen took the changes in stride and made everything as smooth as possible. I'm so glad we had Kristen for our wedding journey, and can't wait to book her again in the future for any family photo needs!

Kristen is extraordinary. My now-husband and I felt so at ease with the way she directed us and the wedding party as we posed for photos. I never could’ve expected to feel so relaxed because we got a photographer like Kristen, who came across a...
lways focused, calm, and confident.
She grounded me and my husband in our nervous moments and somehow managed to be everywhere. She always caught someone trying to take a phone picture and would step in to get the professional portrait.
At the end of the night, I really appreciated how she came up to me to ask if there were any other shots I wanted her to take. I told her there wasn’t and she started heading out, but then a spontaneous last group dance burst out and we all thought she had left. Suddenly she was there to capture that special moment of all our friends on the dance floor. We really felt that she was there for us, and we will always remember that feeling. Not to mention, the pictures came out AMAZING!
We can’t recommend Kristen enough!! Book her! :)

TL;DR-- If you’re wanting an easy-going, reliable, and gifted photographer to capture your love and wedding day with authenticity, look no further. Kristen is who you’re looking for!
As two people who feel uncomfortable in front of a camera, w...
e were searching for a photographer who could help ease our awkwardness, give us some direction, and still manage to capture photos of us in a way that felt authentic and natural. We hit the jackpot in finding Kristen. Some of the reasons we would recommend Kristen without any hesitation:
1- She has an artistic eye that spots opportunity in the most unlikely of environments. I see a decrepit shed on the side of a busy street, Kristen sees an opportunity. One of our favorite photos from our engagement session came from this location.
2- Kristen has a calm, easy-going demeanor. This allowed us to relax in front of the camera and trust the process. It also helped to settle our wedding day nerves and be more in the moment, an invaluable gift.
3- She is organized and timely. With all the details we had to keep track of in planning the wedding, it was such a relief to have Kristen check in with us to confirm all of the details, help us prepare a timeline and photo list, arrive early for both our engagement session and the wedding, and keep us on schedule on our wedding day. And she did all of this without ever making us feel rushed, stressed, or underprepared. Not only this, but she had our edited photos for both our engagement session and wedding in LESS THAN A WEEK!! We immediately shared our wedding photos with our guests and everyone was shocked with how quickly they arrived.
4- Perhaps most importantly, the photos are PHENOMENAL. In our engagement session, she magically turned our awkwardness into gorgeousness. And on the wedding day, she and her second (Tim) captured each moment and emotion of the day. The authenticity that comes through in the photos really allows us to relive every second.
5- Lastly, she keeps the focus on what matters. If you told us that Kristen has Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak, we’d believe it. During our ceremony, we wanted to really be able to be in the moment and for our guests to tune in to our vows, readings, etc. We’ve been at plenty of weddings as guests where we get distracted by the photographer and miss what’s being said. This was not an issue for us at all. She somehow captured all the up-close-and-personal shots we’ll cherish forever, but we have no idea where she was or how she was able to do this. MAGIC!
We cannot recommend Kristen Phelps Photography more highly! Thank you Kristen (and Tim)!!!

menting the real moments of a special day. We were so lucky to have Kristen photograph our engagement shoot and then our wedding in September. For our wedding Kristen brought along another photographer who was just as talented and easy to work with. Both blended right into the room and without anyone even noticing, they were taking beautiful shots. On top of the huge amount of candids that captured everyone’s pure joy, they also helped guide and arrange the bridal party for gorgeous photos. For my husband and I’s couple photos we couldn’t stop laughing and were slightly awkward with poses, but they encouraged silliness and took photos that truly captured our happiness and relationship. They were absolutely gorgeous! When looking through the wedding album, it was like reliving the night and really told the story of our friends and families. I have already recommended Kristen to multiple people and encourage anyone reading this to contact her. She’s an absolute delight to work with and incredibly talented.

But my husband and I, and all our guests look wonderful in all the photos, not an ounce of sweat could be seen. (and trust me, there was plenty!) She made sure we had all the photos of every family member and combination of family you could think of. Some of the photos made me laugh, and some made me cry, she truly captured the moment and the all the feels. We had a small COVID style wedding this year and wanted to use Kristen again next year, but sadly she is already booked, or I would have used her again!

I'll start with the most important sentence of this review so that if you don't want to read my whole ramble about how much I love Kristen Phelps Photography you don't have to... but we have officially found the one and only photographer that w...
e plan to use for the rest of time. (Sorry Kristen, looks like you won't ever be able to retire now)
It's going to be hard to keep this concise, but I'll try to keep it to the need to know stuff - I cannot even begin to tell you how many hours I spent looking for a photographer that was right for us. I emailed SO many people, looked at SO many photos, made my then fiance (now husband) look at SO many photos and compare packages, etc. Literally exhausting. After my extensive research, I landed on Kristen & I never looked back. We booked Kristen for our engagement shoot & our wedding, and I even booked her for a boudoir shoot so I could make a photo book as a gift to my husband on our wedding day. I truly don't think that I would have done that boudoir shoot, or even had the idea to do it, if it wasn't for Kristen.
She has this way of making you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. When you feel like you are going to be the most awkward photography subject known to man and you think no photographer on the planet could ever snap a photo of you that would look how you hope and dream to look in photos - Kristen absolutely blows you out of the water, turns out the most amazing photos that capture you in the most authentic yet unique way, and you can't figure out how the heck she did it, but you don't care because they're perfect.
Kristen welcomed our dog into our engagement photo shoot with open arms & managed to get cute photos with him even though he could not be bothered and was chasing bugs the entire time. She also helped me prank my husband during our first look & more importantly was such a huge support for me during the whole entire wedding day.
Not only are her photos exactly what we were looking for, but she also has a personality that jived with us right off the bat. She's incredibly creative, understanding, and caring.
Long story long, Kristen is the best!

Kristen did an amazing job photographing our wedding! Don't be fooled - her quiet demeanor belies a sharp, professional mind as well as the soul of an artist! She and her assistant produced some simply stunning photos!
She was able to capture...
every aspect of our wedding, from getting ready, to the traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony, the marriage ceremony, cocktail hour, the reception, dancing and more!
She was an able leader during the family photoshoots, but also was willing to lean on the help of my sister-in-law who was directing family (the wedding was ~180 people, to give some perspective).
She came to us highly recommended by a friend, and she did not disappoint. Lastly, her prices were very reasonable, especially for the metro-Boston area, even factoring in travel costs.
We heartily recommend Kristen to anyone in the eastern New England region!

while. Until I came across Kristen’s portfolio. It is obvious from looking at her work that she is incredible at what she does. But what you can’t see from her portfolio is how amazing she is to work with. Kristen seemlessly blended into the crowd at my wedding.... which is important. She was amazingly nice, and rolled with the punches no matter what came her way. During my first look, her shoe fell off, went over the bridge, and floated down the river and was never to be seen again, and I had not a single clue this even happened. You never knew she was there, but she got all the shots I could have ever wanted and more. I have gotten an unbelievable amount of compliments on my wedding photos, because of the time and effort that were put into capturing, and then editing them. Kristen was phenomenal to work with and very flexible, which made organizing this aspect of my wedding a breeze. If I had to do it again, I would choose her a thousand percent.

she was available for our wedding. The plan we chose to go with included an engagement photo session. Neither my husband nor I are very confident in front of the camera and can be a bit awkward, but Kristen made us feel super comfortable. She’s laid back and so easy to work with, but she is also incredibly professional and has an amazing eye for detail and great shots. She gave us great directions and helped us to focus on each other. At times she had us sitting cross-legged in a field, laying down in tall grass, dancing through the forest, etc., all of which made for some incredible moments and photos. When we got our engagement photos back (very shortly after we took them!) we were both blown away! We are not photogenic people, and yet Kristen made us look like photogenic people who looked natural in front of a camera. We couldn’t believe it. There were so many good photos to choose from, that I couldn’t wait until we got to work with her again on our wedding day. Before the big day, Kristen checked in to ask us if there were any photos we definitely wanted, what types of photos we cared about having most, and if we had any special requests. We really appreciated this, and it helped to make sure we got the photos we really wanted. On the day of, Kristen and her dad (second photographer) arrived right on time and blended seamlessly into the business of the day. Again, she gave great direction to us and our wedding party to create some great shots, but also stepped back to capture what was happening naturally. During the ceremony and reception, I barely even noticed there were photographers, but they were there and capture so many amazing moments that we will treasure forever. Our favorites are from when Kristen asked us to step away at sunset for a few photos. We loved that we got a little bit of time for just the two of us, and Kristen captured some of our favorite photos of all time. We are eternally grateful to her and her talent. We highly recommend her, and are desperately looking for excuses to work with her in the future!

al years and when the time came to planning my wedding, there was no doubt in my mind that my husband and I would choose her as our photographer. Despite having a majority of rustic/outdoorsy weddings under her belt, Kristen was eager to jump at the challenge of photographing our ultra modern Boston wedding this past April. As a couple that would rather do ANYTHING ELSE than be in front of the camera, Kristen somehow found a way to make being photographed a pleasant experience. From directing and posing certain shots, to capturing naturally flowing moments, she seamlessly makes you feel like you and your significant other are lighting up the room. She is professional, passionate, and you can tell how much she cares about each couple she works with. Instead of a handful of photos, I now have 200+ that I will spend the rest of my life looking at and smiling…and my husband and I owe that all to Kristen. If you are looking for a photographer that can adapt to your personal style, capture your special day with ease, and deliver an extraordinary collection of imagery for you to admire for years to come, Kristen’s your girl!

Kristen does not posses being assertive enough to get the shots we would have liked, often standing behind people or not getting the right angle.

but even more so she takes shots when you least expect it, really showing the alive feeling in her photos that you feel when you are with the person you love. She is talented, easy to talk to and work with, and provided her services in a timely manner. So happy with my photos.

My fiance, Jacob, and I have been engaged for more than a year, but had been putting off finding a photographer because we're getting married in a different state from where we currently live. Eventually, we decided to look for someone to do ou...
r engagement photos here in New Hampshire, and we looked on The Knot (as well as Google) to see what some of our options were.
I found a couple photographers that I liked, but either the quality of their photos wasn't what we wanted or their price was higher than we wanted. I'm pretty picky about what I like - I really hate cheesy engagement pictures, and I especially hate those super crisp, bright pictures that your friend's second cousin does because she bought a really nice camera and now fancies herself a photographer.
During the search, I found Kristen's page and completely fell in love with quality of her work, her ability to show emotional connections, and the way she tastefully uses black and white pictures! I had already messaged another photographer whose work we liked less, but who was asking for around $600 for an hour session. Kristen was our first choice, so we emailed her and got a response right away. I was shocked (and very happy!) that she was so affordable, which made the decision to go with Kristen such an easy one.
Over the course of the next few months, Kristen kept in contact with us well and was very easy to talk to. She walked through the process with me very patiently and picked a really beautiful place for us to shoot at. It was exactly what we had wanted for a fall, New Hampshire engagement session!
During the shoot, Kristen was an absolute delight. As a person and a photographer, Kristen is so sweet, thoughtful, funny, and has a great attitude. She was so easy to be around and talk to. She gave good direction when we needed it but also just let us be ourselves. Jacob and I are pretty affectionate in general, but it can feel forced when someone's like, "Alright, kiss!" Kristen made it feel natural, enjoyable, sooo comfortable, and by the end of our session, I had almost forgotten about the camera and just wanted to keep kissing my fiance, haha.
We took pictures on a Friday, and by Monday, she had already put up a sneak peak on her Facebook! By Wednesday, we recieved the CD with our digital copy of the pictures, and by Thursday, the online album was up so we could show our friends and family. I never expected them that fast!
More importantly, the pictures are so beautiful. Like a lot of women (unfortunately), I don't typically think of myself as beautiful, but Kristen took some of the most beautiful pictures of myself I've ever seen. The connection between me and Jacob is so clear in the photos, he looked so handsome in them, and while he doesn't usually get excited about pictures of himself, the black and white prints made him almost giddy! Everyone has raved about the pictures, and my father-in-law said they made him smile and cry every time he looked at them.
All-in-all, I could not be happier with Kristen and the work she did for us. I would defintiely recommend her to anyone in New Hampshire, but especially in the Concord/Hooksett/Manchester area!

Kristen photographed my September wedding and was fabulous. She was very professional and responsive in the time leading up to the wedding, was organized and always punctual, and everyone raved about working with her on the big day.

king our photos, they weren't stiff or boring or "run of the mill" they were fun and simply elegant. Kristen was so patient with our large group, laughed with us, but also knew how to take charge when there were family members taking pictures too! When it was time for my husband and I to go off and get our pictures done, the ideas she had were amazing, and there was NOTHING she wasn't willing to do, even including walking through some flowers and tall grass to get the look she was going for!!! We had our pictures waiting for us when we came home from our honeymoon, my husband and I literally put our suitcases down immediately and sat for an hour in complete amazement at how beautiful our photos were. The moments and love that Kristen captured of us and our families, we will be forever grateful for. As you can imagine being the bride and groom you're busy running around, its nice to see that someone saw those moments that maybe we didn't get to see and made it so we could have them forever! We STILL cant decide which photos to have printed for us and our family because they are all so good, I may be hanging 600 pictures in my living room so I can look at them all!!!! Kristen may be young, but don't for a second let it fool you, she is so far beyond talented, i couldn't imagine getting photos done by anyone else EVER again! Thanks to Kristen for capturing all of our memories for us!

Kristen Phelps Photography proved to be a perfect choice from start to finish. In the planning stages, she was always prompt in responding to queries and providing relevant information. Her candor was decidedly professional but personal enough ...
to engender good feelings on all fronts.
When it came to the wedding day, Kristen faced nothing but challenges with regards to lighting, getting people in one place, and time. However, her professionalism shone through, and she patiently guided everyone to where they needed to be in order to get amazing shots, despite shooting outdoors at noon on a sunny day. My wife and our families could not be happier with the results. Kristen was able to get great shots when photographs taken by wedding-goers were almost entirely washed out or too dark.
In particular, her work with my wife and I outdoors was excellent. The outdoor venue for our reception was beautiful, and one reason we chose Kristen was for her outdoor works displayed on her site. We both feel we could not have made a better choice in this regard, as she was able to capture both the most obviously beautiful areas as well as compose shots where the average photographer would not think to look.
The shots indoors were amazing as well, and Kristen showed a creativity and artistic talent that blew us away. When we received a Kenyan wedding necklace, Kristen asked us for our rings, and took a beautiful set of photographs of the rings entwined with the necklace in front of a flower arrangement. Clueless as we were, she also coached us through the cake cutting, which we were very grateful for.
I cannot recommend Kristen Phelps Photography enough. Her professionalism, artistic talent, and geniality made every aspect of working with her both enjoyable and richly rewarding. Thanks to her, we have a fantastic collection of memories from one of the most important days in our lives.
Thank you so much Kristen!

I find my inspiration all around me. The small moments are just as important as the big ones to me. I'd favor a small moment of genuine emotion over a perfectly posed portrait any day. My work is not perfect, but I find so much beauty in those imperfect, unrehearsed moments. This job is not a series of business transactions to me, it is a connection to people who share the same belief that our lives deserve to be documented, perfect or not. Let's focus on what matters most!
