Kristen captured our day perfectly. Hiring Kristen as our wedding videographer was truly the best decision we made. Once we received our video (the turn-around time was amazing!!) we sent it to all of our friends and families and the text messages overwhelmed our phones. Everyone was crying tears of joy and they couldn't believe how perfect everything was, thanks to Kristen. She had the best poses and made us feel like we were the most beautiful humans on earth. She is amazing at her job and I can't say enough about her and her talent behind the camera!Sent on 08/11/2020

I can’t say enough good things about Kristen and her work. I found her on Instagram to do our Elopement, because her editing style is gorg.
I was kind of nervous because I didn’t know her personally but the day of our elopement, she showed up and had the most beautiful and energetic personality.
When I got the images back, I was in complete ‘awhhhh’. Each photo was stunning! She captured such raw, real emotions, & has such a eye for even the smallest details. There wasn’t one that I didn’t love. Thanks to Kristen we will forever have these edits to tell our story of the day we became one. I will forever recommend her to everyone I know.Sent on 04/09/2020

Best wedding photographer ever
We booked with a company and were assigned a random photographer. 4 days before our wedding we could not get in touch with him and were panicking. Kristen was reassigned to our wedding 4 DAYS before. It was late at night and I was freaking out, but as soon as she was assigned to us she was texting me to set up a meeting saying let’s plan and do this. And let me tell you this girl DELIVERED. In every way. She got to our venue early to scout for spots to shoot, she worked with our ideas but also gave suggestions and posing ideas of her own, she captured EVERY SINGLE SHOT I asked for and so many more, she was super easy to talk to and made us feel so comfortable that we were laughing and having fun during all of the photos, and the images that we received took my breath away. She is AMAZING. She even drove me around in her personal vehicle to our first look location because we had a transportation miscommunication!!! She is a rockstar and her photos are stunning. Everyone that has seen our pictures is absolutely in love with them, especially us. I highly highly highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding, engagement, elopement, or just a couples session. She is awesome and her work is flawless. Thank you Kristen, thank you for jumping on board so last minute and giving me so much more than I could have asked for. I will never forget all of the little moments on our big day because you captured them all for me. I cannot thank you enough.Sent on 03/31/2020
