About Kristen Leighann


welcome to my photography journey

Hi, I'm Kristen

Your Candid-Photo-Obsessed Photographer

I'm a Northern California wedding and portrait photographer. I started my career as a hobby, taking photos of friends and family during high school. 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 job. With my clients and with traveling the country climbing mountains and chasing sunsets. With you & for you.

my few of my favorite things

When I'm not traveling and taking stunning photos for my clients, you can catch me at home binging my favorite Netflix drama, playing with my kitties, Mia & Nova, planning a National Park trip or exploring the beautiful state of California with the love of my life, Eric. I have a few other favorite hobbies which include, scrapbooking, hiking, bracelet making, and eating!

Travel is the love of my life


Photography has brought me to so many unique & beautiful places. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did capturing them. This world is such a big and beautiful place, and we should all get out more to explore it.
