I could not gush enough about how wonderful Phil & Kristen are! They traveled to our wedding in SC to take the most beautiful photos. You get a lot of quality time with your photographer on your wedding day and I could not have asked for a better couple to hang out with! Kristen is the master of making everyone feel at ease and Phil is the best at making everyone laugh. I didn't think that I could be any more pleased with their service after they left that day -- but wow getting the pictures back was the real treat! The photos are gorgeous and they caught so many moments and angles that I wouldn't have expected, as well as all the moments we wanted to have on camera. I will be giving all of my friends their name so hopefully we will meet again at another wedding!
Phil and Kristen are absolutely the best wedding photographers around! My husband and I were overwhelmingly pleased with everything from their professionalism to their incredible shots of our special day. They were both extremely kind and easy to work with, fulfilling every single request of ours. My husband and I knew that we wanted the most genuine, clear, classic photos to capture our wedding day without all of the special effects and lighting that many others add. Every single photo that we received from Phil and Kristen was representative of the love and laughter at our wedding. With such a reasonable rate and two of the coolest people we know, I most definitely recommend Phil and Kristen to everyone in need of a professional photography team!
We couldn't have asked for better photographers to capture our wedding day! Phil and Kristen were so easy to work with and so laid back. My husband and I don't particularly love having our photos taken, but Phil and Kristen made it easy to let loose and just enjoy our wedding. They were so flexible with our schedule and did a great job getting the shots we wanted without spending our entire day in front of the lense. We immediately felt comfortable with them (they felt like friends from the first minute) and they were so great about paying attention to all the details that I forgot about! I can't say enough what a pleasure it was to work with them and I would recommend them to anyone who wants a fun-loving photographer to share in their wedding day!
First of all, I wasn't sure that I needed two shooters for my small wedding, but working with Kristen and Phil was a reminder of how joyful marriage should be! This special couple made our day and kept us laughing. They were so easy to work with, went with the flow, and kept me just as calm as they were. The private shots between us can only be described as magical; and the candid shots of the guests have so much energy behind them! Kristen and Phil not only captured the essence of our wedding, but their images make you relive the event over and over again. I cannot say enough good things about working with them but then again, their work speaks for itself!
I love my wedding photos by Phil & Kristen Wedding Photography. Very friendly, professional, and accommodating. Great experience!
best photographers!! Very fun to shoot with and very talented!! Quick responses and very organized and professional!
Phil and Kristen are fantastic! Super responsive and easy to work with. We were coming in from out of town, so before our wedding, we mostly communicated over the phone and a bit by email. They're very responsive. I felt like they really listened to what we wanted our photos to look like, and also had fantastic suggestions and ideas. Day of, they were very prompt, and made us feel so, so comfortable. Our photographs look beautiful, and truly capture the mood of the day. Highly recommend :)
Phil and Kristen are amazing! We could not have asked for better photographers. They made us feel comfortable and it was almost as if we had known them for years. They fit in perfectly with our friends and family so it didn't even seem like they were there to take pictures. We recommend 100%!
Phil and Kristen took both our engagement and wedding photos. The pictures were absolutely stunning! Couldn't have asked for better photographers!
Enjoyed working with Phil & Kristen. Made the whole process seamless. Pictures turned out incedible & would highly recommend their services.
Phil and Kristin are the BEST!!!!!! From the first moment they contacted us for photography for our wedding, we knew they were for us. They blended in at the wedding as if they were part of the family. Everyone at the wedding enjoyed them. They took their time as well as keeping up with the fast pace of the wedding. The photographs were spectacular. Some of the photographs are on the Umstead hotel in Cary, NC website. All our guest are still complementing us on the photos. We'll love them forever because they captured our special moments. My husband and I consider them first class in photography.
As a fellow vendor, working with Phil and Kristen is a dream. They are consistently professional and organized. Their image quality and creativity is second to none. If I could do my wedding over again, I would choose P&K as my photographers without hesitation.
Phil and Kristen were everything we were looking for and more in photographers! We were lucky enough to have them do both our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures. My husband and I are quite uncomfortable in front of cameras, but Phil and Kristen made us feel perfectly at ease and we had so much fun with them. They are so sweet and their work is phenomenal! As someone who rarely likes any pictures of myself, I have truly loved the pictures that we have received. I would highly recommend them to any couple looking for amazing photographers for any special day!
There are not enough words to state how happy we are with the photography work of Phil and Kristen at my daughter's wedding Sept 2016. They were fantastic! Kristin took a tremendous amount of care from the first conversation to the Bridal Portraits to the day of the wedding to make sure that she and Phil knew all of our wishes for pictures. She not only made sure they fulfilled ever request, but her creativity and keen eye got pictures that were beyond what we could have imagine. They got pictures of our bride and groom that literally look straight out of a magazine. Everyone that has seen them state the same thing that "their pictures are breathtaking!" We could not be more happy and thankful that Phil and Kristen were so involved with our daughter and son-in-law's wedding day. We feel truly blessed at the way they captured all of the sweetest moments and help to create some with the creativity in the poses of the happy couple. We would highly, highly recommend Phil and Kristen to any and everyone needing a photographer for any event. They truly are a rare find!!
Phil and Kristen have the best balance of fun and professionalism! They are such sweet and fun people you are happy to have them there, and Kristen was perfect at organizing the photos. She listened to my preferences, and made sure they were executed. I didn't have a wedding planner, and I honestly can't say how she managed to get everyone to where they needed to be for photos but it all worked and was effortless on my part. She and Phil wend above and beyond for our wedding, and the pictures are wonderful. I highly recommend them!!
Wow, so I don't even know where to begin with my review. Phil and Kristen have been such an amazing couple to work with. We had our wedding at the Biltmore, and they were honestly the best part of it. I was beyond nervous before Kristen showed up, but as soon as she got there she knew exactly what to do to calm me down (without the aid of alcohol lol). They were both such a blast to have around, and the sneak peek pictures have turned out to be absolutely stunning. I couldn't have asked for better photographers, and I hope that they'll agree to doing more photoshoots with us in the future. Thank you Phil and Kristen for helping me make our big day perfect!
just the most amazing....Reviewed on 12/02/2015 Doug G
There really isn't enough I can say about these two to express how much we loved our experience with them. Phil spent the day with the guys and captured some of my favorite pictures ever of my husband. Kristen spent the day with me and the girls, and I swear caught every single special moment between me and the bridesmaids and my mom. They are the epitome of calm, in what surely will be a hectic day. Their experience and expertise was integral in helping me stay level headed when (so many) things went wrong. We had the best laid plans, and through no fault of their own, the whole schedule got its feet kicked out from under it. They were flexible, and made it happen; catching the moments that were most important to us, and then some. Kristen and Phil, we love you guys so much. Thank you for everything you guys did for us that day. We can't thank you enough, and we're so blessed to have had you guys there.
Phil & Kristen! Thank you so much for ALL of the wonderful pictures of our wedding. Amelia knocked it out of the park when she found you guys on The Knot. Looking back on our big day, we could not imagine having anyone other than the two of you capture all of those memories. The beauty and brightness that you both posses definitely translates thru all of the hours of hard work you put into our pictures. Thank you again! Amelia & Stacey
There are not enough words to describe how amazing it is to work with Phil + Kristen! My fiancé and I worked with them for engagement photos and the results are phenomenal. They are incredibly professional and keep the experience light and fun. It was great to have them provide direction and to help me (being very versed in selfies but not in being professionally photographed!) feel like a model! Our session was effortless and felt more like a fun outing than standing and posing. This made our pictures very natural and exactly as we wanted them to look. From scheduling to the session to post editing to delivery, Phil + Kristen made this part of our wedding planning a breeze. They come HIGHLY recommended and we cannot wait for our big day with them!
Amazing, kind, outgoing, and talented. Pretty much sums it all up. First off, they are the most awesome couple EVER. Honestly, if I lived closer I would make sure we were bffs. I was an long distance bride traveling from DC to Winston-Salem where we got married. Unlike most conventional brides, I got married in the middle of winter so of course Phil & Kristen probably thought I was nuts (they actually didn't and embraced my weird obsession with the cold). Therefore my entire wedding was indoors due to some inclement weather. With that being said, they found every creative nook and crany available at my venture to take some awesome shots. What is more important is that they listened to my husband and I when we told them how much candid journalistic photos meant to us and we wanted to see every just having a good time. Let's just say I lost count of the number of times Phil was laying on the floor getting awesome shots of people dancing, all while Kristen as me spinning like Cinderella in the middle of the dance floor. Come on, that is all pretty epic. These guys are amazing and I would not think twice about recommending them to anyone. You will be beyond thrilled with the results!
Kristen and Phil's personalities were what drew us to them to photograph our wedding on March 7, 2015. Since we both generally hate being photographed, we needed photographers who were warm, good with people, and had great senses of humor in addition to being wonderful photographers. Kristen and Phil delivered on all fronts. Even better, they were open to photographing a same-sex wedding (two brides). Kristen did a marvelous job with our 20-month-old flower girl whose attention was drawn to everyone and everything at varying times. Our families were not exactly the easiest individuals (especially given wedding stresses) but Kristen and Phil barely seemed fazed and persevered. Our wedding photos are beautiful and will be treasured for the rest of our lives. Kristen and Phil, we cannot thank you enough for being a part of our important day and for capturing it forever in such beautiful photos. You really are the best!
I've never liked the way I look in photos, but Kristen and Phil made us look amazing!!! So fun to work with. Absolutely beautiful photographs! These two are incredibly talented. I wish I could give them 10 gold stars instead of 5!
When we were planning our wedding on a budget, one thing that we didn't want to sacrifice was getting wonderful photos. I was so glad to find Phil + Kristen, who both not only made us feel so comfortable, but managed to take AMAZING photos within my budget! I love our wedding photos so much because they listened to what we wanted, took the time to understand our style and because they are all-around great people. I could gush about them all day, but just know that your most special day is in good hands with Phil & Kristen.
We received our photos a few weeks ago and absolutely loved them. We are getting a lot of compliments from our guests about the pictures and how well Kristen and Phil did. They were so much fun to work with and I would highly suggest them to anyone. What sold us at first was their prices. Photographers can be so expensive but P&K had very reasonable prices for everything that we got (2 people (1 photographer/1 helper), rights to the pictures, CDs, website for guests to purchase photos, etc). They were perfect!
