I have been watching the beautiful work of Kristin with Pond Photography for years. I knew long before my special day came that she would have to be the one to shoot my engagement and wedding photographs! Her creativity, style, and professionalism during our engagement session... Read More and our wedding day were beyond our expectations. We have received numerous compliments on the photos that have been previewed from our wedding as well as the full set of engagement pictures we have received. I can hardly wait to see all she captured on our wedding day and know that my husband, family, and friends will continue to be amazed by Kristin's photographs! I highly recommend Pond Photography for your Engagement, Wedding, and Family Photographer. We will continue to have Kristin capture special moments in our lives! ~Ryann & Nathan Hemphill

I highly recommend choosing Pond Photography!!! We had Nancy and Kristina as our photographers on our wedding day and they were so excellent! It was such a hot day, but it really didn't seem to bother them, as I never once heard either of them say anything about having to be... Read More outside taking photos in the heat and humidity! They were still so fun, upbeat, and fantastic. They also took such great photos and we are so thrilled with the results. I can't even choose which photos to get prints of because there are too many great ones to choose from! It's really the best kind of dilemma you could ask for!! If you're wanting a talented, laid back, and fun photographer, go with Pond Photography! Kristin is the owner she was so amazing to work with! All of these talented ladies deserve many accolades. They were fantastic. Super happy for these local entrepreneurs.


Fantastic Experience

A coworker of mine had used Kristin, of Pond Photography, and recommended her to me when I began searching for photographers. I couldn't be happier that she passed along her name! My fiance and I knew we were in good hands from the first time we met with Kristin. She's... Read More incredibly easy to work with, and puts the couple's interests first while also giving her professional input. For both our engagement session and our day-of pictures, we had a general idea of the location/vibe we wanted, but didn't have anything specific in mind. Kristin guided us to locations that fit exactly what we were looking for, unbeknownst to us! In fact, one of my very favorite pictures from the wedding day (one that I have printed and framed on our entry table) was in a spot that I never would have thought to stop for a picture, but Kristin's professional eye captured it. Our wedding was in mid-December, and we had all of our photos back by mid-January:: not only did the holiday season fall in the middle of that time frame, but Kristin also had her first baby in that time frame. With all that, it absolutely blew us away that she was able to get the pictures turned around so quickly! We could not be happier with our choice in wedding photographer, and I always jump to recommend her to any of my newly engaged friends. I can't imagine anyone having anything but a wonderful experience with Pond Photography!

Deciding to work with Pond Photography was by far the easiest decision that we made throughout our wedding planning process. Within minutes of meeting Kristin, we knew that she was the perfect person to capture our engagement and wedding photos. She is extremely personable and... Read More made us feel at ease being in front of the camera which definitely showed in the final product. Both Kristin and Nancy captured us in our natural state without out being overly posed or staged and allowed us to have a fun, stress-free wedding day. Kristin was very flexible when it came to selecting photo locations, scheduling viewing sessions and creating a custom package that was tailored to our exact desires. Not only was the experience incredible, the photos are beyond amazing. Having crisp, bright photos was on our must-have list and Pond exceeded our every expectation. We can’t thank you enough for capturing our special day so perfectly!

Kristin (and her secondary photographer) delivered amazing photos, even though we did not have very much time to take them. We also loved getting all the digital copies.

We had Kristin photograph our wedding in Cancun, Mexico. She spent a lot of time walking the (HUGE) resort and planning her shoot. Unfortunately, we had a tropical storm and things didn't go according to plan. Last minute we were relocated inside, and all of the places that... Read More she had scouted were not an option anymore. She was able to quickly figure things out and adjust as we went. Initially, she was a little out of our price range, but we decided to splurge a little for good pictures. Thinking back, if we had an inexperienced photographer, I don't things would have turned out as well. We have gotten so many compliments on some of our outdoor rain photos and even the indoor ones that we weren't planning to take turned out great! Kristin is very professional, creative and responds promptly. Thanks, Kristin for everything!

I contacted and interviewed a LOT of photographers before settling on Pond Photography for our wedding. Kristin is extremely responsive and really makes you feel comfortable in what can be really awkward situations. We chose to have Pond's associate photographer shoot our... Read More wedding to fit in our budget and it was a great decision. Kristin shot our engagement session and once we got our images back we were shocked at how relaxed and natural we looked! Nancy and her second shooter, Jillian, rocked our wedding and were so encouraging and excited about the shots they were getting, which made us even more excited. I had planned to get a group photo of the entire reception but my planner and band kind of missed that detail but Nancy went out of her way to really try and make it work! Another plus is that Kristin has a quick turnaround time to receive your images compared to other photographers I spoke with. We love our images and I can't wait to get the published album in a few weeks! Photography is definitely one of the more expensive parts of your day but Pond Photography is totally worth every penny!
