For as long as I can remember, I've 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. 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 photography, but this is what drives my passion for weddings!

In my 10 years in business, I have been so blessed with over 140 AMAZING couples! Almost all of my past brides have become such good friends over the years and have even babysat my kids so Sean and I can go on dates! When they joined the CKBrides family, they did just that...they joined our family! I'm not just another photographer who will show up on wedding day, take pretty pictures, and never speak to you again. By the time wedding day rolls around, it will be like seeing an old friend! 

If you're not sick of me yet, LET'S CHAT a bit more to see if we are the perfect fit!


I'm Kristen, an engagement wedding photographer based in the Bay Area of California, but serve couples all over the country!

I am a lover of all things that glitter, snuggles with my boys, bad dad jokes, and coffee. When I'm not behind the camera or the computer editing, you will find me at home snuggling up on the couch with my kiddos watching Disney movies with a cup of coffee in my hand, walking around Target with coffee in my hand, or watching the sunset on the Pacific (with coffee in hand). If you can't tell, coffee is one of my best friends, especially being the mom of 2 very active boys, Mason (10) and Liam (5). 

Hey There!
