YOUR PERSONAL HYPE GIRL.
Ever since I found my own happily ever after in 2012, I’ve been crazy about telling love stories of all shapes and sizes. Well, my mad love for Disney is at least partly to blame. And probably my mild obsession with The Bachelor, too. And the fact that there’s not a Taylor Swift song I don’t know all the words to...okay, you get it! I’m really just a hopeless romantic with a camera. Will I cry during your vows? Absolutely! Will I literally go barefoot to let you borrow my shoes? I’ve done it before! Will I squeal and snuggle your dog the second I meet them? Heck yes! This is probably a good time to mention that I will be very disappointed if you don't bring your pup to your session... soooo I can't wait to meet you (and your dog) soon!
From the moment we first connect, I’m with you all the way. I’ll give you honest feedback on vendors and tell you what angles give you a double chin. I’ll ease your nerves and lighten your load. And when the big day finally arrives, I’ll become an extra bridesmaid with a camera. I’ll hug your mom, laugh at your dad’s jokes, and help your grandma up the stairs. I’ll chase down a bottled water, fix a groomsman’s unruly boutonniere, and catch a hair tie on a bridesmaid’s wrist before she walks down the aisle. So, one day, when you’re 82 and flipping through your album with your grandchildren, you’ll still be able to relive the day two families merged and your happily ever after began.
Don't take my word for it though, check out the nice things people say about me here:
"Kristara is hands down
the best ever!"
Her skills are incredible and she is so versatile it's amazing... But even better than that, she is a genuinely wonderful human being who you want to be true friends with after working with her! My husband and I had the pleasure of having her shoot our elopement photos in Stanley Park this fall and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect fit! I reached out to the wedding community looking for a photographer that was available for our elopement but more importantly was good with working with plus size & anxiety ridden brides like myself... Kristara reached out to us and we immediately knew she was the one, we felt a connection with her from her first kind & understanding message to us! I was nervous and my anxiety & self consciousness were in overdrive, then Kristara arrived and we had some time to talk and a sense of calm washed over me. We can't thank her enough for everything she did and the incredible images she captured on our special day, they went above and beyond our highest expectations! I do and will continue to recommend her to everyone I know and we can't wait to work with her again in the future for all of our life's milestones!
"She is AMAZING! Everything
she does is incredible!"
Where do I start!! ...She makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera, pays attention to details (like awkward hair, or hand placements and more) she knows exactly what to do and can create your vision! She has done my maternity and couples photos and nailed both of them! I can't wait for the next shoot we do with her!!! So... look no further and contact this beautiful lady!!! You won't regret it!
"Kristara is an amazing, talented photographer."
My fiancé and I had the opportunity to have her as our photographer for our engagement shoot and engagement party. She has so much talent and her photos just makes you wanna smile and cry at the same time! She makes you feel her photography and that is pure talent! Thank you Kristara, you are amazing and I wish you the bestest!!!
