If you’re fueled by sandy toes and salt air, love to laugh your butt off, obsessed with breathtaking sunsets, and always up for an adventure, we’re gonna be perfect for each other. Whether it be a surprise proposal, engagement, anniversary, honeymoon, maternity, birthday, or just because, I promise you’re gonna have one heck of a fun time…promise.
Because I’m not about awkward poses, but rather Those real moments and you simply being you.
The little things and those big feelings, like you radiating with pure happiness or your babe wiping away tears rolling down your cheeks because you two are laughing so hard.
The big moments, the loud ones and the quiet ones, the in-betweens, the ones you don’t think anyone else is watching.
I’m about capturing who you really are and making this experience fun from beginning to end. Yep, even if you think you’re not photogenic (spoiler alert – models even have to practice being photogenic!) or if your significant other dislikes taking photos, they’ll soon be saying how much fun they’re having — promise.
So if don’t mind getting your clothes a little sandy and maybe hopping in ocean, tell me what you’d like captured and let’s create something beautiful together!

With over one hundred 5-Star client reviews, these are just some of their ‘making me blush’ reviews…
Kristen is a brilliant and talented photographer. My fiance hired her to take pictures of our engagement and then have a photo shoot on the beach afterwards, and it was an amazing experience. Kristen was engaging, fun and a pleasure to work with. She also got us our photos so quickly and they are just amazing! – Leila + Milver
Kristen was absolutely wonderful to work with! She made us feel relaxed and comfortable – very down to earth and professional, as well! My husband is very anti-posing/anti-getting pictures taken and he ended up having a great time with her and was very relaxed, goofing off, and almost having fun (shhh don’t tell him I wrote that)! We did a trash the dress session after photos on the beach, in went Kristen with her camera and everything! Pretty sure this wasn’t planned on her part since she went in the ocean wearing her clothes to get the perfect shots. It was a blast! Thank you thank you thank you, again! – Brittany + Kyle
Kristen is awesome! She was an absolute pleasure to work with while planning and executing a surprise proposal shoot for my fiance and I in Tamarindo. Kristen helped me plan everything from the time and date of the photos to where I would pop the question. I couldn’t have done it without her. Above that the photos are absolutely beautiful. –Trey + Michelle
