I do what I do because I love it. I grew up in a family of printers and was encouraged towards art in general by my mother. In many ways, there really was no other choice for me. Not that I mind.To be honest (and I was once referred to as “honest to a fault” by my dad), at the beginning of my career, I never thought I would shoot weddings. Way back when I was just out of art school, I wouldn’t touch them with a 10-foot-pole. But then, I got married. And everything changed.
At first, after my own, I thought I knew weddings. Well, let’s say that back then I understood them more than when I was single. Now, 7 years, and a dozen seasons of life later, I can say that I’m finally starting to understand marriage. A little.
Being witness to the start of a new couple’s journey is a joy. Being asked to document the beginning of their love’s story is humbling. But, befriending, counseling, and sharing in the chapters that follow: that is a true honor.

Kris Rae is amazing! We could not be happier with our wedding photographs! There aren’t enough stars to give him!! We chose him because other photographers we looked at took ‘pictures’ and Kris took ‘photographs’. We knew we definitely wanted to get an album, and the kind that Kris provides are gorgeous and worth every penny. It has been two years since our wedding, and the only thing we have left now are the photos- I’m so glad we went with such a quality photographer. We elected to get engagement photos done to give us an opportunity to work with Kris prior to the wedding. It was fantastic and provided us with nice pictures in regular clothes, too! The day of, we got an extra photographer to capture my husband and I prior to the wedding and for extra coverage during the ceremony and reception. Kris and his fellow photographers blended right in and perfectly captured every important moment. Kris is a wonderful, easy-going person and a really great photographer. He was the perfect choice for us.Sent on 09/10/2015

Kris and his team are AMAZING!!!! We had such a great experience working with them and we can't wait to work with them on future life moments!! Kris did both our engagement session and our wedding day coverage and we couldn't have asked for anything better. We had some unexpected timing issues on our wedding day and Kris took control and still got us all the shots we wanted! He's awesome! :) Kris and his team were great to work with and our photos are incredible!!!! We will forever be grateful for their work!!Sent on 12/10/2013

Kris took pictures at our wedding and at events the day and night before the wedding. He was willing to think out of the box and go above and beyond. The pictures he took were beautiful and he captured some amazing candid moments. We would recommend him to anyone.Sent on 11/24/2013
