About Kristen Gardner Photography

I love to portray natural emotion in my photography, and I find that weddings are all wonderful opportunities to catch these genuine moments. With a fresh perspective, I portray unique interactions, expressions, and relationships in all of my images. One of my favorite things about being a photographer is watching as people begin to relax in front of the camera; it is so fun to capture natural moments as individuals interact with their surroundings and with one another!

Whenever possible, I enjoy taking a more photojournalistic approach to my photography. I do take a variety of posed shots, but I focus more intently on capturing real moments as they happen. I prefer for each photograph to look and feel natural.

    Outstanding

    Warm, funny, yet somehow invisible, Kristen managed to extract amazing images from our daughter's wedding. She combined film and digital with a superb sense of light which created both nuanced and radiant shots of the ceremony and bride and groom. Really fast turnaround (think next day) for previews and within 2 weeks for final gallery. Recommend highly.

    Great experience and photos

    Kristen was friendly and personable. She managed to make a largely unphotogenic couple shine in many lovely photos, and capture wonderful scenes with family. We were very pleased with her choices around location and angle, and hope to work with her again on future photo needs. Logistically, our collaboration was easy and effective, and she turned around the photo album and recommended folder surprisingly quickly. My wife and I recommend her to other couples without reservation.

    Kind & Patient Photographer & GREAT Photos

    Kristen was phenomenal to work with. She brought a high degree of professionalism along with her genuine and kind personality. She communicated with us very well in the lead-up to the wedding, and did a great job capturing the event without being obtrusive. She worked well with herding all of our families into one space for the posed pictures, and she has a GREAT eye for candid shots. She also worked very well in tandem with our videographer, Erin Sellers (whom we also highly recommend). In sum, she's everything you'd want out of a photographer on the day of your ceremony: professional, courteous, unobtrusive without missing the moments that matter, and gifted with a keen photographic eye.

    Following the wedding, Kristen continued to be amazing. A friend who could not make it to the ceremony reached out to her before she had even finished the proofs and got a great photo of us to print and send. We love the photo and appreciate Kristen for working with our friend!

    Kristen uses a very convenient website that you can use to download and share the photos and order prints (your family and friends can order prints directly too!). She also provided us and our parents with a lovely printed wedding album that we all love.

    You will not go wrong with Kristen!

    Kristen is a fabulous photographer who also ensures that you are having fun while your photographs are being taken. No drudgery with her, but don't let that fool you as she takes her job very seriously. She captures the moment so well and gives her all to make sure your photographs are wonderful. Rev. Will and I both particularly love her candid photographs and her artistry in using different angles. You can entrust your wedding day to her with full confidence.

  • The Art of Ceremony Wedding Officiants

    In the sea of photographers who may be overwhelming you at trade shows, and bombarding your mailbox, you MUST remember this name: Kristen Gardner Photography. As a Ceremony Officiant - and across my lifetime - I've seen the work of more photographers than I can remember, and Kristen Gardner stands tall above the rest. She has such a gentle and approachable way about her, and seems to be able to coax the authentic, relaxed and natural personalities of her subjects to the surface. This is a rare talent, and one that a true professional must posess in order to bring the timeless and transcendent quality we all hope will be captured forever in professional photographs. From the day I began using Kristen's photographs on my website, I received positive feedback immediately. If you want your first glimpses of the proofs to take your breath away, remember three words - Kristen Gardner Photography. Check it out: www.kristengardner.com.
