tell me about you
I’m Kristen: Your not so traditional elopement and intimate wedding photographer.
I’m a free-spirited, down-to-earth, well travelled (20 countries and counting), creative DIY’er.
see what it's like to be photographed by me
When I’m not documenting love stories, I’m with my family creating our own memories, or cooking up a storm for them in the kitchen. I have the most beautiful little girl Olivia, who is hilarious and curious and inspires me daily to be the best version of myself. I married my best friend and biggest supporter Alex in 2018.
“She was a pleasure to work with, super helpful, flexible and attentive."

let's plan your day
So much more than just a photographer!
I will be there getting to know you from our first phone call, guiding you as you plan, and more than likely crying with you as you exchange your vows (Yes, I’m a crier).
When you choose me as your photographer you also get me as your location guide, timeline planner and cheerleader. When you work with me, I will do whatever it takes to make you feel like family so you can feel safe, be yourself and express your feelings without holding back on your wedding day.
I want to get to know you both, so I can authentically capture your story and create beautiful art inspired by your love. I want to know the hardships you’ve been through. The battles you’ve overcome, that time you almost called it quits. I want to know the best thing you ever did together and your plans for the future. I want to know it all.
There are no secrets or information I’ll hold back. I truly want you both to have the most amazing experience and I will guide you every step of the way. I will provide you with tailored resources and information for your day so you can have the best day imaginable.
Of course I'm going to take beautiful photos of you to remember for a lifetime, but I'm going to do it in a unique way that tells your story.
I want to leave you with photos that make you feel all the feels and that you connect deeply with because they are so authentic to your story.

In their words:
"Impeccable and Priceless Work!! We display her pictures like art work around our house!"
Kristen’s approach and attention to detail goes beyond what a simple 5 star review can capture. It would be an understatement if I told you she is the best. Not only is she professional, and takes every detail into consideration, but she does it with a passion that shows with every picture. She is incredible, and honestly, you cannot put a price to her work. She is on our speed dial for whenever we need professional pictures for our family. And, we have recommended her to all our friends and family.

"From the initial steps of reaching out to her, to our engagement session, to our wedding, we were so pleased with our decision to hire her."
I can remember feeling so anxious the day of our wedding about everything working out in terms of timelines, etc. Kristen honestly made me feel so at ease. She was so flexible the day of, assured me we would get all of the shots we had wanted, and she truly delivered. Our photos turned out so well, and we have gotten SO MANY compliments on them. We couldn't be happier!”

We absolutely LOVED working with Kristen. A Wedding photographer was by far the most important vendor for us to hire. We wanted to make sure that we chose someone who would capture the day we spent so long preparing for, the special moments, our loved ones and the overall vibe of the day. Kristen was perfect. Leading up to the wedding, Kristen answered every email and call with clear, friendly and reassuring responses which added calm to my frenzied wedding planning adventure. On the big day I was thrilled with how personable, knowledgeable, calm and professional she was. The images we received blew me away. The photos and moments that she captured were absolutely beautiful. In editing, her style was exactly what we wanted - a warm and cozy vibe. We feel truly grateful that Kristen photographed our wedding day - thanks again for all your hard work!

"Our favourite vendor."
Not much! Both elopements and intimate weddings focus on you, the couple, and your love and commitment to one another. Both can include family and friends, and can be anywhere you want. The main difference is that intimate weddings will usually include some family and/or friends and isn’t just you two, while elopements may only be the two of you. You can still choose to elope and have guests though. Don’t worry too much about the title, just know that both allow you to do whatever it is you want!
My elopement and intimate wedding coverage is limited to 25 guests to keep the focus on you as a couple. This doesn’t mean if you choose to elope and have more guests that it isn’t considered an elopement, its just what I personally choose and believe for my couples.
*For pricing and info on weddings bigger than 25 people click here.
- Yes, it is legal to Elope. The requirements are different everywhere depending where you live and where you’re planning to elope.
- How you get legally married totally depends on where you live, where you plan on eloping/getting married, and who you want involved for your day. You can have an officiant and witnesses if you want, or you can legally get married a different day and exchange rings and vows on your elopement day.
- Having an officiant again depends on where you plan on eloping/getting married, and who you want involved for your day. For example: If you want to elope, and you only want the two of you present on your elopement day (along with your photographer aka. ME), you could legally get married before and meet all the requirements, and then plan your elopement wherever you want and exchange rings and vows that day. This would mean you don’t have to have anyone else present because there are no legal requirements.
Honestly, don’t let the legal stuff overwhelm you. That’s where I come in and guide you. You can click here to read my blog post on “How to Elope” where I cover the most common questions around elopements and the legal stuff.
Yes! I do take on a limited number of weddings that are larger than 25 guests each year. Please keep in mind that these weddings are selected based on my connection with the couple and their story. There is no specific number of guests I will or will not photograph, but my goal is to strictly work with couples who are planning intentional and meaningful days.

Some of my packages include a complimentary engagement session. This is an amazing opportunity for us to meet, get more comfortable with one another, and create lasting memories for the two of you. If you don’t want to hang out and have a fun time, that's totally okay (booooooooo), but since this is complimentary, no discount will apply. Packages still remain at full price.
Depending on the type of session we are doing together will determine how long it takes to get your photos back. This information is noted in your contract for reference incase you forget! Click here to book a consult with me to learn more
I don’t have a minimum or maximum when it comes to the number of photos you receive. Naturally, the more coverage you have of your day in terms of hours, the more photos you’ll receive. It would be safe to say I generally deliver anywhere from 400-1000 photos per wedding or elopement.
