Kristin was amazing!!! My wedding was 94 degrees, and not too pleasant, but she did amazing. She's great at natural looking photos, which I love. She sent me some the next day because I was a in rush to see some, and the few I seen are so beautiful. She was extremely nice, and easy going with what I wanted to do! She's also not expensive at all. I didn't have a budget, and picked her because I loved her photos, and when I called her, she was so kind on the phone. So, the fact that she is way cheaper than some other photographers I spoke to, makes her even better (:

I can't say enough good things about Kristin! She did my engagement photos and I can not wait for my wedding! She is super professional, easy to work with, a good communicator, and makes you feel super comfortable in front of the camera. I love her use of lighting and props, she is always very creative with a photo shoot and clearly loves what she does!
Her final product is fantastic! I was extremely pleased with her work and plan to use her as my photographer for my wedding, babies and beyond! I highly recommend her, you will not be disappointed.

I cannot say enough kind words about our experience with Kristin. She was very laid back and took the awkwardness out of taking photos. We had so much fun and felt so at ease. Our images are beyond gorgeous. Her shots make me look SKINNY! What bride doesn't want that?! I seriously loved every single bridal portrait so much that I couldn't choose JUST ONE to display at the reception.. so, I had to go out and buy an 18 opening frame! I would highly recommend her to anyone. I love each and every image that was captured and will cherish our wedding photos forever.

I found Kristin to be such a wonderful, creative, professional, responsible, kind, and overall outstanding photographer that I was fortunate enough to have. She was more than flexible, understanding of any ideas, wants, or needs that I had, and very pleasant to work with. She was able to be anywhere and everywhere!! I love the moments she was able to capture during our engagement photos, my bridal session, and our wedding/reception. I believe her talents will only sky rocket from this point on. I would highly recommend her for any occasion but especially on one of the most special days of your life, your wedding day!

I think for the money spent, Kristin is an excellent bet. She is a very busy girl and when we needed to reschedule something, she did so for us. I think she has unique ideas and I would recommend her to anyone.

I cannot say enough about how fantastic Kristin Partin is! I have been so pleased with all the photographs she has ever taken for me, which include my engagement, bridal, and wedding pictures! Not only is Kristin a wonderful photographer, but she takes the time to get to know you and become your friend. One of my favorite moments with Kristin was going to eat pizza after my bridal shoot in Corolla at 9:00 at night and just getting to know her.
There are not many photographers who would ask you what they can do to help on your wedding day, and then put rose petals down the aisle for me because we were so busy we forgot to do it. Now THAT is great service!
Not only do I love my pictures, but Kristin was gracious enough to accommodate me by coming to the Outer Banks/Corolla for all of the photo shoots she did for me and my husband without hesitation.
I would highly recommend Kristin Partin Photography to anyone who wants truly amazing photos from a truly wonderful person. I can't wait to have more photos taken by Kristin when we start our family. I feel like she has become a part of our family and I'd want no other person to share those precious moments with than her.

I could not think of a more professional or competent photographer than Kristin! She is so friendly and truly gets to know her clients and make them feel comfortable, while striving to take the best, most beautiful and creative shots imaginable. I would recommend Kristin for any type of photography, because from what I've experienced, she can do it all and can work in any setting (no matter how chaotic)! Kristin gets along with everyone and is sensitive to the needs and concerns of those around her. I would not hesitate to book Kristin again, and would highly recommend her to others who are looking for a professional photographer, who takes exquisite photos!

She is by far the best and most down to earth photographer that I know. My husband and I has had the pleasure of working with her numerous times, and we have been MORE than pleased with our photos. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone to capture their special moments. You will not be disappointed.

We have worked with Kristin Partin Photography on several occasions now, and have been absolutely THRILLED with her work. Her photography captured the details that were important to me - and she catches the little moments that (when you're the busy bride) you may miss on the big crazy day! SUPER pleased with the pictures, and she's just a really nice person in general. Not sure what the other post meant about "not professional" - but if he meant her pictures are personal, sweet, dreamy, and not your average "seen one seen them all" photos... that makes a little more sense. Honestly, her work speaks for itself. I've had nothing but wonderful experiences! Wedding, family members' weddings, and family pictures. We love her! Keep up the great work, KPP!

LOVE Kristin Partin! She rocks. She did such an amazing job with our engagement and wedding pictures that I hired her for a maternity session. I am looking forward to a family/baby session with her some time in the future. I have had numerous friends and family members ask for her information after seeing my photos. She is very easy going and open to ideas. Her prices are great and I have really enjoyed sharing some incredible life moments with her. It is because of her that I will be able to cherish those moments forever. Thank you Kristin!!!

I used Kristin for my engagement/bridals/wedding and she was marvelous for all 3 sessions. I will say that her style is a love it or hate it style, my husband and I personally loved her style, it's really in tune with who we are as a couple. Kristin was very flexible and whenever I had a question she e-mailed me back within a day or two, which is reasonable. I know that when you're trying to plan a wedding you want immediate and favorable answers but contrary to popular belief you are NOT the only bride in the world, and some patience is required. Kristin was very helpful, (she even helped me get in my dress) she was out of the way when she needed to be, and jumped in when she needed to.
Victoria · Married on 12/17/2009
I agree with the above poster! Kristin was incredibly attentive and professional at our engagement session - even as it was getting ready to rain! She had great ideas before we got together for the shoot and helped to recommend props that reflected and represented who my husband and I are as a couple. She is truly outstanding & we think her photography speaks for itself. You'll be so happy you chose her!

I honestly don’t know what the users who rated Kristin Partin Photography a “0” felt that she was missing. Yes, she can be a little slow responding, but, as has been said, this girl is crazy busy. It’s ridiculous to think that any photographer will be able to respond to you right away, especially during wedding season. Seriously, don’t expect that. However, the reason that she is so busy is that she is an incredible photographer. I have seen my share of fauxtogs who rely on processing and effects and a cool website to bring you in. Kristin is not one of them. Kristin’s eye for detail and overall feeling shows in her work. I was in contact with her for about 7 months before my wedding, and in that time, we talked themes, I sent her shot ideas and told her exactly what I wanted (or at least the feel I was going for). Know what you want, and she will rise to your desires. Ask for input and she will suggest ideas. If you want a cookie-cutter wedding album, with someone who will tell you what shots you need, she is not for you. That was never what I wanted. This girl is affordable, understanding, and FLEXIBLE! That is huge. My wedding was at a private residence in 95 degree weather with a huge wedding party to coordinate and very limited picture time, but I can’t imagine being more satisfied with my pictures. I have gotten comments about using my wedding photos in bridal magazines, and I’ve recommended her to anyone who will listen. One family to whom I recommended Kristin has used her for two separate occasions in the last 2 months. Look at her photographs and judge for yourself. Her style may not be for everyone and that’s ok! But it doesn’t change the fact that this girl is good.

After reading some of these comments I was a little confused as they range from one exteme to another. I have to say, I was so pleasantly pleased with this adorable young lady and her ability to make me feel at ease through the entire shoot!
I thought at first since she did not answer my call on the first try that these people were right, but she called back in a timely manner and I realized really quick that she is BOOKED!!! She made time for us and deivered with a smile! She is very professional...but she isn't snobby or uptight! She likes to have a good laugh and enjoy the moment, so if that makes her unprofessional, so be it.
Flexibilty may be an issue if you are last minute as this chic is busy!! Someone commented on her second shooters spending more time in light room but she assured me that she does all of her editing and if you don't like her style then its your job to do the homework and see her work before booking! She gave us great service and pictures and I would highly recommend KristinPartinPhotography to everyone!!

Kristin has a creative gift and specializes in beautiful nostalgic photography. It was exactly what we wanted in a photographer. I love the simplicity and softness of her photographs, the use of unique props and the ability to work in different settings. She is great at taking a look at what's happening and capture the feeling of the event in beautifully staged and candid photographs. I highly recommend her! She is the quality of a high-end photographer at a reasonable price. We are so happy to have found her and that she was able to travel several states away to make the day more memorable than we could have imagined!

Apparently there are two bridezillas writing reviews here.
We had Kristin at our wedding and she was so easy going, perfectly relaxing, even came back to our hotel after the wedding to shoot a few extra shots in the Craddock Terry in Lynchburg. I was very pleased with the wedding pictures and very pleased with the flexibility. Both my wife and I loved having her. She was prompt in sending emails and contacting us.

I didn't have wedding pictures taken by Kristin Partin, but senior portraits instead. She is a super friendly photographer. My favorite aspect of her photography was her "poses." She was very good at positioning me in ways that looked natural and more "me." She doesn't do the cheesy poses you make fun of. The only pictures I didn't like were ones that I looked funny in, not because of her editing or skills, but because I am a naturally awkward person. Even through my awkwardness, she managed to get wonderful pictures.
I have never had an issue with responsiveness either. Kristin was absolutely delightful. She answered my emails in a timely manner, and when I had a question, she was quick to answer it to the fullest extent. She also was very creative where I was not. Getting the photos back wasn't immediate, but you can hardly blame her. I have had to edit photos and film, and it takes quite awhile to get perfection. She only delivers perfection. I definitely recommend Kristin Partin photography if you like affordability and perfection.

I absolutely loved working with Kristin. I feel that I have somewhat gained a new friend, and she always picks the best assistant photographers to work with. I had the pleasure of getting to see Kristin at work during two weddings, one being my own, the other being one I helped coordinate. She does take a while to hear back from, but I feel that she carefully selects her clients and she definitely knows how to treat her clients the right way. I have worked with other photographers and I have never felt at ease with the other photographers the way I have Kristin. She provides props, locations, and isn't afraid to get her hands dirty (i.e. stopping wherever is necessary to get the right shot.) Although some might call Kristin a little "unprofessional" I would say take the stick from out of your butt and loosen up. I prefer Kristin's style of easiness to an uptight photographer getting every penny they can out of you. Kristin's prices are amazing and she's flexible to work with you according to your budget and needs. Start off small and work your way up, that's how it's done, and I believe she will go far because of it. I also like that she is down to earth and gets up close and personal with her clients. I would work with her any day just to feel the comfort I feel with her. If I had to pick one thing I liked best about her besides her style of photos, I would choose her helpfulness. If you ask her for props, she's there with a list of ideas. If you ask her for location ideas, she already has a ton up her sleeve. Thanks for your hard work Kristin.
