It's hard to find a photographer when your thousands of miles away. When I first inquired about our wedding, Kristi was responsive, informative and always available which in my case was important considering the distance. All of the engagement and wedding pictures turned out... Read More great! She made my husband and I feel comfortable from day one. She brought suggestions that were outside the box and in line with our vision. I couldn't have picked a better photographer!

Kristi is so amazing! I had an outdoor wedding in July ( who does that?) and she couldn't have made my day any easier. Even though it was 100 degrees and sunny, Kristi was right there with us all day getting my dream wedding shots. Kristi has taken my high school graduation...

From the first meeting my husband and I had with her, we knew we wanted to work with her. She understood our fun & outgoing personalities and was able to capture that in every photo she took of us.

We are now looking forward to the next time we get to work with her which will hopefully be very soon!

We used Kristi, first, for our engagement photos. I was very nervous about this situation because I felt it would be awkward and the pictures would look that way, too. I was absolutely blown away by how welcoming, calming, and natural Kristi made us feel. I KNEW that she had to... Read More be our wedding photographer. The whole process was SO easy and natural. We sat down about a month before our wedding and I gave her a list of everything that I wanted photographed and she was happy to capture everything that I wanted. On our wedding day, she was timely and always where I wanted her to be even without me telling her! I would highly recommend her to anyone for any photographing occasion. I know that we will definitely use her in the future for capture our growing family.

We had a small intimate wedding and Kristi did a fabulous job. Meeting before was so helpful in assuring she would capture the kinds of photos we wanted and all the details that were important to us.

Kristi was absolutely amazing to work with! She was always so friendly and really made an effort to make us feel as comfortable as possible going into our big day. We met twice before the wedding to talk over details and then also walked around the venue about a week before. We... Read More even extended our time a few weeks out and she had no problem adding the extra hour. On wedding day, everything went wonderfully. Kristi was so relaxed and I think that really set the tone for the rest of the wedding party, as well as my husband and I. It was over 100 degrees outside, but I don't think anyone could tell from the pictures. She did a great job coordinating getting the outside shots I wanted and also keeping everyone cool. After the wedding, we were so pleased to get our images. She truly did capture every detail and we will cherish those moments for the rest of our lives.

I was very nervous for engagement pictures simply because I am not super comfortable in front of the camera. After the first couple of minutes we started to warm up.

They turned out so AMAZING! Kristi designed our Save the Dates for us at a good price and we received so many compliments on them. They were perfect! Then our wedding came and Kristi was more like a friend that day than a stranger snapping pictures of us on our wedding day. She was so calm and sweet but still smiling and laughing the whole day. She knew our style by that point and took advantage of every opportunity to get a great photo. Kristi even made our bridal party feel comfortable in front of the camera and had a great time with them! In fact, several of them said, "Wow, your photographer knows what she's doing! I love her, she's so sweet." She's just amazing and so easy to work with! Now for the best part...Kristi designed the MOST BEAUTIFUL wedding album for my husband and me. Oh my goodness, I cried again as I was flipping through the pages! It is just so nice to have something so special for us to look back on to remember one of the best day of our lives. I already know when our family expands Kristi will be the photographer of our babies. She's so easy to communicate with and, in my opinion, has such great style when it comes to photography. We are customers for life! You will not be disappointed if you go with Kristi as your photographer for any event in your life.
