San Francisco Bay Area Wedding Photographer

Mountain Top elopement

Hi, I'm kristen,

Your candid-photo-obsessed wedding photographer

I'm a san francisco wedding + elopement photographer. I started my career as a hobby, taking photos of friends and family. Soon I decided to start my own business doing portrait sessions until I landed my first wedding. Fast forward to now - I'm in love. With my couples and with traveling the country climbing mountains and chasing sunsets. With you & for you.

♡ I'm an avid hiker. my favorite places to hike are the national parks all across the us. my goal is to shoot in all 63 parks before i die. (12 down so far)

♡ my absolute favorite state is utah. i love every single thing about it. it stole my heart & refuses to give it back (i don't mind)
