Hello and thank you for visiting my page! I'm Kiersten...photographer, traveler, star gazer, and yogini. the word "prema" comes from the ancient Sanskrit language and means divine love. LOVE is what inspires my life each and every day, and I feel so blessed to have the honor of capturing this force through photography.
After graduating with a BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in NYC, I had the privilege of working in the Photography Departments of various publications such as Newsweek, Culture Travel, and The Knot Magazine. My passion for people, places, and landscapes has fueled my love for travel and exploration, leaving me with a wanderlust for exploring this beautiful world. I currently split my time between the beaches of New Jersey and the lush mountains of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. When I'm not photographing I love practicing yoga, surfing, cooking, and spending time with my loved ones.
My approach to photography is to inconspicuously focus on the emotion and beauty of each and every moment. I'm so thankful for what I get to do and I thank you very much for being here!

I have known Kiersten for many, many, years and have long admired her work. When it was my turn to say “I do,” I knew there was only one photographer for me. I am blown away by the beauty, rawness, and overall emotional capture of our wedding day. From my smiling 97 year-old grandma, to the gorgeous sunset that night, Kiersten and Chris captured the very essence of the love that surrounded us that day. As we viewed our album, it was literally like reliving each magical moment of the wedding. Kiersten is so easy to work with, an absolute professional in every sense of the word, yet also so warm and calming (which I needed as I am a tad high-strung). She was even able to capture gorgeous group shots of a 17 person + one flower dog bridal party, and everyone looks amazing in them. (Including the pup!) I cannot recommend Prema Photographic enough. - JennaSent on 07/27/2018

Prema Photographic did an exceptional job at documenting our wedding day. Kiersten and her husband Chris were on-time, knowledgeable, and very accommodating. We were able to get many standard family shots as well as in the moment shots. Kiersten was very personable and easy to work with. She answered all emails in a timely fashion.Sent on 10/07/2015
Only recommendations is for brides/grooms to make a list of important people they would like pictures with. We feel like we missed out on taking pictures with some close friends because we were so caught up in the day. Also, try to have the cake cutting part earlier in the evening so that the photographer is still present to take pictures (we originally had 8-hr photography coverage which we extended to 9-hrs for an additional $285). Our cake was cut after our photographers had already left but fortunately our wedding videographer was able to capture that moment.
