Casual, DIY, simple, outdoors, vintage, alternative.. for those who never pictured themselves having the big froufrou wedding; no fuss, no stress, no silly poses just easy, comfortable and relaxed. It’s not all about the shoes or buttonaire, it’s about you, them, and all your friends and family.
I am not going to expect you to do anything silly or cheesy or forced. I’m a bit geeky, I’m a bit shy, I know how weird it is to be put into poses and force smiles. Your photo session will be a painless experience for you and we can totally spend it chatting about stuff random things like tv shows, etsy, pinterest, roller derby and cats! These are photos you’ll be looking at for the rest of your life, so you might as well be yourself and have fun doing them.

Hello! I’m Kristen, I love pretty things, warm colours, a splash of red, puffy clouds, perfectly aligned text and elegant ampersands. On the average weekend when I’m not at a wedding you’ll probably find me photographing a live band, watching a derby bout, riding my super pretty new bike or chilling on the couch with my cat watching any one of the dozen tv shows I’m currently addicted to. I have terrible handwriting and (I think) a weird phone voice, but I’m typeractive – which means I give good email and am a little TOO chatty online! Oh, and I’m older than I look.
I live and work in Melbourne but also regularly shoot in my hometown of Brisbane. I’m a portrait/editorial style photographer with a background in live music photography which means I think fast and can adapt to the available environment to take a great photo in any situation, rain, hail, crazy drunk crowds or prima donna rockstar! I think this makes me a little bit different, in an awesome kind of way! I’m also a digital designer, having worked for years in the advertising industry, so I love designing awesome wedding albums as much as I enjoy taking the photos to go in them! I also have a strong focus on same-sex/gay/lesbian/LGBTI commitment ceremonies, weddings and portraits.
I think photos should be taken to be looked at and enjoyed, hung on your walls, pinned on your fridge or displayed in a gorgeous book, not lost down your facebook timeline.
