"we're super comfortable in front of the camera."

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but if you're anything like any of the couples you'll see here, your first thought when it comes to photos is probably, "but we're suuuuuuper awkward in photos," or "we're really not photogenic." Guess what, babe -- you came to the right place because let me tell you, I feeeeeeel you!  I am 100% the same and I've been in your shoes! I'll give you great direction, make lots of lame jokes, and when we're done, you won't even feel like you were having photos taken. It'll feel like hanging out with a good friend. I'll be capturing all the details you put so much thought into, those candid moments that'll give you all the feels, I'll guide you through the portraits of you and your boo and when you look back on your photos, you'll be able to relive it all! And no worries lovey, I'm all about making sure to get those family photos for grandma to hang on the wall too!

Said no one, ever.

Insert some catchy, funny thing
about me here.

In case you didn't notice by the tagline, I suck at talking about myself but I'll do my best. I've been married to the love of my life for 6 sweet years, 5 of which we've shared with our furbaby, Sarge, my little Bernese Mountain Dog. Okayyy maybe not little, but he'll always be a pup to me! We just bought our first house -- on my birthday last year, happy birthday to meeeeee -- in Mission, BC and I LOVE living in the Fraser Valley! I'm definitely a country girl at heart, but I've got big city sensibilities. I think I must have been a super boujee fashion icon in another life.

I'm super sarcastic and have a pretty dry sense of humour. I will tell your family to "pretend they like each other" just to get laughs.

I'll treat you like a BFF

what makes me different?

I'm like a bridesmaid with a camera. I'm your confidante and moral support, the ring-leader and coordinator. I'll hug your mom, laugh at your dad's jokes, cry during your vows. I'll be right there beside you, tying up your dress or touching up your hair. I'll be there to document the magic of your wedding day whether it's in your backyard with just your closest friends and family or it's at a castle with hundreds of guests. Whatever your dream wedding looks like, I'll be there to make sure that one day when you flip through the pages of your wedding album with your grandkids, that you live it all over again.

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 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!
