BETTER WITH YOU PHOTOGRAPHY

After hiring me for your wedding, each BWYP couple can choose, free of charge, one of the below options you would like me to complete in your name. It's like the Tom's shoes policy, one for one.

1. I will volunteer an afternoon photographing rescue pups who are looking for their forever homes. It's proven that a quality photo makes a pound dog more "adoptable".

or

2. I will gift a free senior portrait day to an underprivileged high school senior, which will build their self confidence/esteem. With this option, I provide the senior with an online gallery where he/she can download images from their session for free.

I'm Kristen. We live just north of Big Sur in THE cutest little underrated town called Pacific Grove.  I photograph proposals, elopements, intimate weddings, weddings and a lot of pregnant mamas because I believe in marriage and I love love. It's the best feeling in the world to be with couples when they take that forever step. My photos show real feelings. Nothing forced. My job to make sure you feel comfortable and are able to be yourself. I shoot in Big Sur, Carmel by the Sea, and Carmel Valley.  Witnessing a proposal makes my whole day. Since becoming a mama, I tear up during almost every parent dance. I know how to bring calm and quiet to a wedding morning and positive energy when you need it. 

Things I love: my family/friends, coffee, vintage jewelry, global purses/bags I collect while abroad, massages, peonies, all holidays, wandering in new cities, and random acts of kindness. I spent my twenties adventure seeking, living abroad nonstop and traveling to over thirty countries, but now I'm spending my thirties super local with my two beautiful little girls and supportive hubby. Walks in nature, bookstores, farmers markets, coffee shops, playgrounds and connecting with my friends/family...turns out the simple life is where it's at. Shoot me a message below...I would love to show you my favorite spots in Big Sur. 

 xo, 
      Kristen

MY STYLE:


THIS IS ABOUT YOU. WHO YOU REALLY ARE AS A COUPLE. LET'S NOT FOCUS ON WHAT SHOULD BE OR WHAT LOOKS PERFECT. IT'S NOT SOMETHING TO CHECK OFF SO YOU CAN REMEMBER WHAT YOU LOOKED LIKE. LET'S CAPTURE HOW YOU FELT. THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO WANT YOUR GRANDKIDS TO KNOW, RIGHT? LIKE, "DAMN, MY GRANDPARENTS FREAKING LOVED EACH OTHER." THAT'S WHAT MY AIM IS. TO MAKE PICS THAT CAPTURE EMOTION - REAL, NATURAL, AND, OH, ALSO IN A RIDICULOUSLY STUNNING PLACE HAHA

my instagram would be better with you...
