Big Sur, California and Southwest Michigan Wedding + Family Photographer

warm, natural, effortless photography for adventurous + easygoing couples and families

Hiiiii! I'm Kristin. Let's make this easy.

You're busy. You're busy planning your wedding or maybe you're busy chasing your kids around. I'm here to help (aside from professional photographer, I'm also a professional kid-wrangler and have witnessed a whole lot of weddings)!

I'm a California and Michigan wedding, elopement and family lifestyle photographer who believes in making photo-taking effortless and fun, without skimping on quality or creativity. I'm currently based in Saint Joseph, Michigan, but my heart forever resides in Monterey, California, my home of the last seven years. I'm happiest barefoot on the beach.

I love the sun, a good latte, a walk outside by myself, and a big glass of red wine. I'm drawn to the water, no matter where I go. The ocean is my favorite, but Lake Michigan is definitely runner-up. Being near the water cleanses my soul in a way nothing else does.

If I'm not working on my business, you'll probably find me chasing after my two little girls (1 and 4) or making sarcastic jokes at my husband's expense. My clients say I make them feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera. I think it's just because I'm a little bit of a weirdo (aren't we all?) and I treat everyone like a friend.

If you're a laid-back couple or family looking for someone to capture this crazy thing we call life in a candid and fun way, and don't mind rolling around in the sand or galavanting through streams, let's do this! I'd love to tell your story.
