I have nothing but praise for Kristy! She is everything we had hoped for in a photographer, and more. Her work is simply stunning. We spent a long time looking for a photographer, we knew what we wanted from our photos, but it was so hard to find with a reasonable budget. Kristy's work is far superior to others we've looked at, some at double or near triple her price point. She is so lovely to work with, so friendly and very knowledgeable. This was great for us as we are from the UK, so having the chance to work with someone who knows great locations, or how to put together timelines for the day makes the whole things so much easier. We had a few hiccups on the day (family getting lost in Central Park, food trucks parking and ruining pictures!), but Kristy kept everything on track, and kept us on time for getting to each location. We had Kristy for 8 hours, I think she called it an epic elopement (a term we love!). She made us feel happy and comfortable all day. She pointed out small things such as, when I had to touch up my make up on my nose, that had gone red due to the cold. We now have a huge folder of pictures that are more beautiful than we could have hoped for, and that we will cherish forever! You won't be disappointed if you hire Kristy for your big day.

Kristy was a dream come true!
While looking for photographers, we had a budget in mind that seemed to be too little for what we wanted. Everything we liked was way out of our price range, double and higher. Then we came across Kristy May. her work was exactly what we wanted, executed more beautifully than anything we had seen by far, and yet affordable. Her professionalism and pleasant demeanor were also part of what made working with her a true delight. Since our wedding we have received our photos and they are everything we could have dreamed of. If you want a photographer who will capture every memorable moment of your special day, and allow you to actually enjoy it, Kristy is the photographer you want.

Absolutely nothing but praise!! We eloped and had a private, just the two of us, very romantic, ceremony in Central Park, NY. Kristy was able to capture every precious moment. I do not like to be the center of attention, and worried about feeling awkward in front of the camera, but she was able to make me feel comfortable and at ease. Not once posing felt forced, all felt very natural. We were really able to enjoy our wedding day together. We visited 3 locations in a 3 hour window, all well planned by Kristy, who kept track of time, no stress or fuzz for us. We were able to visit all locations on our wishlist and got great pics at all of them. She has a very keen eye for details and the best light. Our family and friends, we were not with us on our day, loved the pictures and almost felt like they were part of the day. I highly recommend Kristy, a professional, easygoing and flexible photographer, who will capture your wedding day in the most fantastic manner and will give you beautiful memories!

We absolutely love our wedding photos! Kristy did an amazing job capturing every detail of our day. She was so easy to work with and was quick to get us sneak peek pictures before we left for our honeymoon! We would highly recommend Kristy!

We were so lucky to find Kristy for our wedding pictures. Prior to our wedding ( we live in Canada and were being married in NYC) I had multiple conversations with Kristy by phone and email. She always responded and or set up a time that we could chat. Kristy was very friendly and very knowledgeable about Central Park (where we were married) which made it great for us as she knew all the good spots for iconic pictures which is what we were looking for. Kristy was in contact when we got home and told us when to expect our pictures for downloading. After a few days she sent us a quick peek of a few pictures which was nice to see. And to my surprise when the pictures did come there was a great little video as well!! We were very happy with Kristy the day of our wedding and I would highly recommend her for your special day. She certainly made ours!! Thanks again Kristy!!Sent on 11/06/2017

Similar to what others have been saying, Kristy was great. We cannot thank her enough for photographing our elopement at Manhattan's Marriage Bureau. When we were first getting quotes and information about the elopement process, Kristy was super responsive and informative. Her blog has a ton of great photos and we sent her links to some photos my now husband and I liked. She also had us fill out a questionnaire online to document our preferences. On the day of, she arrived early and took note of all of the requests and feedback we provided. She is very focused on natural light and now we know why. The pictures came out beautiful. Her candids are awesome. She knew all of the great locations near the Marriage Bureau/City Hall to take pictures. I am not usually good in front of the camera, but Kristy guided my husband and I through the process. I would recommend Kristy for any wedding, but especially for anyone planning to elope in NYC. She knows the steps inside and out, can help with timing if you are planning a celebration after City Hall, provides great ideas with respect to locations, and on top of that takes amazing photos. What is even better is that she sends you sneaks of the big day super quick (for us, it was next day even though it was Christmas Eve!). It was awesome to be able to share those pictures with our family around the holidays. The final pictures came a little less than a month after. Really, a fantastic experience overall.

Kristy took the photos for our destination wedding, and we couldn't of been more thrilled with them! Kristy used her experience to help us get the best shots, and capture memories that will last a lifetime! We even got some sneak peaks while on our honeymoon!
We would 100% recommend her, you won't regret it!

Being a photographer myself, choosing the right person to photograph my wedding was one of the things I cared about most. I stumbled across Kristy’s website while google image searching a potential venue and completely fell in love with her work. My mom put it best, “everyone on her website looks good and they aren’t models!” Throughout the entire wedding process, from pre-wedding planning to day of logistics, Kristy was amazing. We were absolutely blown away by her images of our wedding, we loved her photojournalistic style and were happy with how she was able to capture so many genuine and beautiful moments from the big day. We can’t even begin to thank her enough for capturing such an important day so perfectly.
Myra · Married on 03/18/2017
Kristy May was just what we wanted in a wedding photographer; for our experience to be intimate and more journalistic than “posed”. She had great ideas to deal with the unpredictable weather that gave us peace of mind. Kristy has a great eye and ability to capture wonderful moments that we now cherish. We also love her options for albums.
melanie · Married on 01/14/2017
Kristy May was a true gift. We had a small private ceremony and she was wonderful at quietly integrating herself in order to get great photos. We could not have asked for
More. The photos were beautiful and she was top notch.
Sarah · Married on 10/07/2016
We could not be happier with our entire experience with Kristy and the photos we received from our wedding. She was very easy to work with, had great ideas and nailed the documentary and not-overly-posed style we were going for. One of the things we were looking for in a wedding photographer was that we didn't want to feel their presence. Kristy did a great job of capturing the moments without drawing attention. We absolutely love the photos and would recommend Kristy in a heartbeat!
christina · Married on 10/01/2016
If you are looking for a professional photographer to capture the special moments of your day, the emotion felt by everyone, the beauty surrounding you...then I would highly recommend Kristy May. She navigated through our day with ease and intuitively snapped photos that make us feel as if we are reliving that day again! My husband and I are beyond grateful for Kristy's talent and thankful for the memories we now have documented.

Went above and beyond the call of duty on all possible measureables. She is full of energy and has a very unique style and captured every possible moment of our special day.
C · Married on 09/12/2016
From our first communication Kristy was responsive, polite, enthusiastic and professional. We were booking an NYC elopement from England and so could not meet in advance. She put me at ease by answering all my questions and letting us know what to expect on the day. Our main requirement was that we did not want the photos too posed or contrived, and the photos she has delivered have exceeded all our expectations. They are natural, romantic, not cliche, and most importantly, capture the feel of our relationship and our wedding. Her turnaround time was very quick, too. All our friends and family who have seen the photos have commented on how fabulous they are. I have only positive things to say and would highly recommend her!
Jennie · Married on 07/19/2016
Kristy is a very professional and personable person. She works with you to help you achieve your vision on your special day. She has plenty of great ideas if you just don't know what to do. We highly recommend Kristy!! She definitely makes your special day memorable!
Cláudia · Married on 06/04/2016
Kristy did an awesome job. Her job is very natural and that was we were looking for. My husband and I couldn't be more happy with her photos that captured every special moment, emotion, family and friends that made our wedding day memorable.
Rebecca · Married on 05/21/2016
Kristy was easy going, attentive and took fantastic photos! I'd recommend her to anyone.
Shona · Married on 05/05/2016
Kristy was wonderful and put us at ease. She sent us all our photos 4 weeks after the wedding and they were fantastic. Her style is natural and unforced. She takes photos of little details that you don't notice at the time but you cherish forever. We couldn't have asked for more. Thanks so much Kristy.

If you're looking to be put at ease and for natural photography, I highly recommend Kristy. Our day couldn't have gone better, and our photos were wonderful. Our family have all complimented them.
Lauren · Married on 04/30/2016
Kristy did an amazing job capturing our perfect day! Before the wedding she sent us a form to fill out so she would be prepared for anything and everything, it also had a list of important people and important group photos we didn't want to miss which was great. We got out formal photos knocked out in no time. But the best part of Kristy's work is that she truly captures the emotions and fun in the action shots. She tells the story of your wedding in her photos! :) Now I just need to order more prints and a get a book made!
Vicki · Married on 04/27/2016
My wife and I planned to visit New York and get married at City Hall (we live in Los Angeles). We needed a photographer to capture our day and we came across Kristy May Photography. One look at her website and I knew that we had found the perfect photographer for us. She was absolutely wonderful from start to finish! She made suggestions regarding locations and knew all the best places to take photos. We booked her for 6 hours and that was the perfect amount of time for us. Kirsty is truly a professional and has a great eye. We were so comfortable with her and it was more like hanging out with a friend for the day. We recently received our photos and we were absolutely blown away! They pictures far exceeded our expectations and we could not be happier! Thank you Kristy for making our wedding day so special!
Kirili · Married on 03/23/2016
Kristy was fantastic. She was extremely flexible, as we changed the timing of our elopement and really helpful with suggesting places to take shots. The photos turned out absolutely amazing and we are so grateful for all her time and effort.

Kristy was superb to work with. Very organized and professional, with an easy-going personality. Many of her pictures have a lovely artful edge to them--something that made her work stand out from the slew of wedding photographers out there, and the thing that attracted us to her in the first place. At our wedding she got all of the shots we wanted, and more--she was always in the right place at the right time, but was never at all intrusive. We love our wedding photos. You can't do any better than Kristy, and if we were doing it all over we'd choose her again in a heartbeat.
Ilyse · Married on 10/30/2015
Kristy was great to work with, super responsive and she knew all the best spots to get pictures. She got some shots that make me think she's a wizard, we didn't even notice her moving around. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a photographer in the NYC area.

Kristy photographed our wedding and rehearsal dinner last fall on Cape Cod. She has a very positive energy, relaxed style and was never intrusive. Her work is beautiful and she is very flexible/easy to work with. We highly recommend Kristy to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!
