In one lifetime we have 100 years. If we are lucky, we will spend 3/4 of it with someone we love. It is easy to get lost in careers, balancing a bank account and keeping life stress free. I am here to remind you of what matters most. YOU! I capture your relationship at every stage.

I am a believer that people will not remember how much money I earned, what I drove or where I lived. They will remember how I made them feel. I am dedicated to service first and everything else falls into place. There is room in my life for all sorts of people. Including you. I want to capture the most intimate day of your life, the day you give your heart to your soulmate forever.

let's get personal, shall we?

Photographer and storyteller for couples looking for a one-of-a-kind experience.

Hey, I'm Kristie!

I love to travel. Especially, road trips. I love to see the different states and nations from the view point of the native residents.
I use to dream of taking a trip to Europe with nothing more than my backpack& my camera. No hotels, sleep on the train from location to location. 

My favorite pastime is exploring with my husband and  my Cane Corso.

I could spend everyday on a hiking trail listening to books if I could.

I love Pittsburgh! This city has made me feel at home. I love the people and culture.

why i'm here for you

 I am a fan of an amazing love story. As a girl, I was always caught up in the stories of couples who ran away to the woods to tie the knot. They are adventurers, romantics and travelers. They value the moments they are in and the experience.

My aesthetic is not about a light or dark image style; however, I do lean a bit moody. My style focuses on the connection between couples and their families. My couples are taking their ceremonies outdoors to the forest and beaches. I am never opposed to photographing an indoor event. But, I love how nature can bring its own special something to an event. 

I have a bachelors degree in portraiture from the Arts Institute of Pittsburgh. I have skills and experience with both natural and artificial light scenarios, but I am a huge fan of the look available light offers portrait. 

In the past, I have focused my services on professional athletes and their families. These days, I am opening up my services to a clientele that is not so high profile. I am servicing approximately 20 elopements per year total, by design. This allows me to concentrate on a couple's most important details. In my boutique business setting I provide quality over quantity.

In July 2020, I retired from a 20-year in law enforcement with the State of Utah and moved to Independence Township, Pennsylvania. My husband and I own a 13.5 acre lot of forest at the top of a hill. I am in awe everyday with how simple life has become for us "off the grid." I spend my days training my Cane Corso and working with brides. It is the best life for me.
