In my 12 years in business, I have been so blessed to have been able to capture the weddings and portraits of over 250 AMAZING couples and families. It's been such an honor to be a small part of these families as they've grown. My past brides and portrait clients (especially the moms) have become such good friends over the years and have even babysit each other's kids so Sean and I can go on dates and they can go for a night out! When they joined the KCP family, they did just that...they joined our family! I'm not just another photographer who will show up on wedding or portrait day, take pretty pictures, and never speak to you again. By the time the big day rolls around, it will be like seeing an old friend!
If you're not sick of me yet, LET'S CHAT! I'd love to talk and get to know you more to see if you think we'd be a great fit!
I'm Kristen, a portrait and wedding photographer based in Oahu and the Bay Area of California, but serving families and couples all over the country! 2020 portrait sessions and weddings include Hawaii, California, Charleston, and beyond...
For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with the wedding industry. I was always watching Say Yes to the Dress, Bridezillas (hey, no judging) and pretty much any wedding related show/movie. I even remember going with my mom to the bridal salon she worked at when I was a kid and "helping" brides pick out their wedding gowns. Really, I was probably not helping, but I totally thought I was! But, it wasn't until I was left without a photographer, just 2 days before my own wedding, that I knew EXACTLY what I would be doing with the rest of my life. I had already taken photography classes and had a love for portrait photography, but this is what drives my passion for weddings!
Mason made me a mom almost 11 (WHAT?!?) years ago. He has an incredible sense of humor and a natural talent for sarcasm. Best of all, though? He's seriously the most amazing big brother to Liam.
Liam is our youngest and has probably the coolest birthday ever...Halloween! He has so much compassion for others and is our very own "Baby Groot*"
*If you don't know who Groot is, please watch Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and thank me later.
Sean & I are from coastal Georgia and lived less than 30 minutes to Fernandina Beach. As cheesy as it sounds, it's where I realized I loved him and wanted to spend my life with him. For this reason, beaches have always had a special place in my heart and soul.
I am not talking about your regular run of the mill Foldger's-in-your-cup type of coffee. I'm talking about those life-changing fresh brewed cups of good, strong, smooth and silky coffee with just the right amount of creamer to coffee ratio! Those are the cups of coffee that I live for!
Okay, hear me out. I LOVE anything that glitters. From the light shining on the sea, to glittery notebooks, to my favorite sparkly overnight bag. There's just something about sparkles and things that glitter, that makes my heart so happy! I mean, let's be honest, how can you NOT be happy after seeing sparkles?
