From our engagement session to the very last wedding dance, Kristin made our entire experience wonderful. Kristin's creative vision and adaptability is unmatched. We could not be happier with our wedding photos even with the last-minute switch from outdoor to indoor formals (thanks, weather). She loosened us up and captured intimate details without making us feeling like we were under a microscope. Kristin's confidence, spunk, and and seamless planning allowed us to relax and enjoy our time rather than stressing that each shot was captured or that the right family members were included. Without a doubt our best vendor decision of the wedding was going with her.
This rock star of a photographer melted our faces with her talent. I always hear people compliment their photographer by saying “I didn’t even know she was there.” I knew Kristin was there, and loved every minute. She got to know us first, so she was a friend in our midst rather than a lens in our faces. When I was camera-shy at the beginning of the day, she got me a drink. When it was about a million degrees and we were melting, she assured us it wouldn’t show in the photos. When we had to power through the formals she was a well-oiled machine. She’s funny and inventive and open-minded, and she captured images that are like little time-machines – I look at one and zip right back to that moment. Like I said, pure talent.
Kristin became as much a part of my wedding as my family. Hard to imagine that at once a stranger, a photographer can become one of your dearest friends at this time in your life - but that is her generosity. We created our whole event from CA, and relied on her incredible suggestions for vendors - every single one was out-of-sight. Trust her and try to book her before someone else does, she is truly the best.
Spectacular!Reviewed on 11/18/2013 Kara D
Incredible, fantastic, fun, creative! That is how we would describe Kristin. We found her through doing a friends wedding, and we loved her style. We would choose her 100 times over again to do our engagement and wedding pics! She is very energetic and gives great direction. She can be as involved or loud as you want her to be! She is extremely flexible to meet whether it be by phone, skype, or in person to grab food and drinks, we did all three! And she has very fast turnaround! We were hesitant about doing engagement photos, but she knows how to make you feel comfortable. Getting familiar with her and being in front of the camera made the engagement session totally worth it. We wanted more candid photographs and to capture details and in the moment pics. Both Kristin and her photographs were better than we could ever have asked for or imagined! She also has great ideas and suggestions for wedding expos and vendor lists. If you want fun, creative, unique photographs, and to have a blast, choose Kristin! You will not be disappointed! Kara & Justin Check out her website: http://www.kristinchalmersphoto.com/
Love her!Reviewed on 10/09/2012 Maya T
My husband and I are both shy, but Kristin took us out our shell. I'm so glad we went with her-you won't regret it! She also has a goof booth/photo booth that everyone loved! You won't be disappointed working with Kristin.

Kristin is perfection. She is funny, sharp, snarky (in the best way) and really cares about the work that she does. She even came to my house for our initial meeting, whipped out the iPad and started to show me everything which was awesome. She is not the typical wedding personality and she takes risks which always work out so I trusted her immediately. On the wedding day, she moved quickly and was organized, with a list of different locations that we ironed out about a month before. She is easy to communicate with and has a really unique style that just made me adore her.
Photographer Photography ReviewReviewed on 1/08/2012 Pjdjgah J
What makes her different? Kristin Chalmers was awesome. If you are the kind of bride who wants to work with someone who has a personality, you have to go with her. She is into meeting with you to be sure she catches who you are as a person. She works with your budget and your style. Whether you know exactly what you want, or if you have no idea, she was very supportive. I’m no photographer, but the coloring and the images really made the decision for me. You need someone who is going to have your back that day and catch images of you in those special moments. I can’t say enough about her. -Paulette kristinchalmersphoto.com
AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZINGReviewed on 6/21/2011 jenna C
If I had to do it again and could only keep one of the vendors I used, it would be Kristin. I'm beyond impressed with the quality of the pictures that I've seen so far. They are truly unique and unlike the traditional posed wedding pictures that anyone could take, although she made sure and get some of those for grandma:) Kristin was incredibly professional yet relaxed and fun at the same time. Everyone in our wedding party was raving about how wonderful she was to shoot with. She made herself available every step of the way. Wedding pictures are the one thing you get to keep forever, and I had full confidence going in that even if everything went wrong it would still look beautiful in pictures! Our day was perfect and I credit a lot of that to her. You would think she's been doing weddings for years. If you want someone reliable, talented, and FUN, Kristin is the photographer for you!
Fabulous!!Reviewed on 2/11/2011 Kaithlyn K
Kristin is amazing! My husband and I had met with a few photographers in central MA and weren't impressed with their traditional feel and overly-posed photos. A friend suggested Kristin and sent us to her website; we were totally stunned. Then we met her and we were kind of in love. Her style was exactly what we were looking for - unique and fresh. She walked us through everything. We had an engagement session so we would be comfortable with her style and it was such a relief, we are both pretty shy and Kristin's personality had us laughing and relaxed within minutes. She turned around the proofs in record time, too! Before the wedding, she made herself available by email, skype and phone whenever we needed her. She didn't hassle us with worksheets and schedules, we just exchanged emails about what we wanted and important family/group photos we needed. Hiring Kristin really MADE my wedding. Her photos are just breathtaking! All of my friends and family are in awe of her work. She was so professional, managing to get the best shots with barely any staging. While getting ready, it was like having another close friend there helping me prepare for the ceremony. She was sensitive to some accessibility issues we were dealing with and made everyone so at ease. I felt like I didn't have to worry at all. Our wedding was at an historical venue and Kristin was able to give a creative spark to give our traditional wedding an edge. It rocked. If you are considering hiring Kristin (which you should be!) get the GOOF BOOTH!!! It was the biggest hit at my wedding and the pictures are hysterical. Everyone found their way into the goof booth at one point or another. My husband's 90 year-old grandfather and all of our college friends donned Paulie D wigs and playboy bunny ears to pose for photos that are now plastered all over facebook (with photographer's permission). We are going to have to order a separate album just for the Goof booth and we couldn't be happier. Kristin will tell you how attached she gets to her "couples," but we can attest to how attached you'll get to her. We loved Kristin and I can't thank her or recommend her enough!!
