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

We were so lucky to have Pond Photography capture our wedding day, and even luckier to have developed such a friendship long before our wedding. They are so professional, precise, and truly care about their clients. They have a gift for capturing moments on film that far surpass... Read More any photographer I've ever worked with. They listen and note every element of your special day in the making and they do not disappoint. Simply one of the greatest in Kansas City!

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!

Wonderful team to work with!

Kristin was great to work with from start to finish. She's easy to talk to and made me and my husband feel very comfortable on our wedding day. We stayed on schedule and received a great balance of the traditional shots you want at every wedding, and more creative, artistic... Read More scenes. We were extremely happy with our photos, and really appreciated her help at the review session choosing our prints. I highly recommend Pond Photography!

So talented and trustworthy!

Pond Photography photographed my wedding on October 3rd, and I already have my photos edited and back. They are wonderful!

Kristin is Awesome!

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. Kristin is very engaging and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, even though we are generally... Read More more reserved people. We also did an engagement session with Kristin and had one of our photos printed on a canvas. It sits above our fireplace and our friends say great things about it all the time. We would recommend Pond Photography to any couple who wants a professional and fun photographer to join them on their wedding day.

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!

My husband and I used Pond Photography for our engagement and wedding photos. I initially chose to work with them because their pictures looked so refreshing, crisp, and beautiful. I came across wedding photos online done by Pond Photography of a wedding venue that I was trying... Read More to decide if I wanted to use or not, and their photos depicted the venue and people so beautifully. With the help of their photos, I actually chose that venue! Not only are the photographers at Pond Photography amazing at what they do, they are also extremely friendly and easy to work with/communicate your needs with. They were super flexible when it came to scheduling photo shoots and viewing sessions as well. Our experience with Pond Photography was absolutely wonderful and they helped make our wedding day very special. I would highly recommend Pond Photography for your wedding!

Our engagement session was amazing and was shot on The Plaza and at Loose Park and after we mentioned we... Read More got engaged at The Intercontinental she insisted that we stop by there for some photos too - which are some of our favorites!

Worth every penny

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!
