I really, really dig people.

That shows up in all places of my life. Whether it’s people-watching while on a date with my boo or visiting antique shops, rummaging through old family photos, I love learning people. Because I thrive on other peoples stories, I tend to ask too many questions. I’m the type of person who thanks pilots and chats with the flight attendant. I shrink up in large social environments consisting of people I know, but I shine in a room full of strangers. Hence, becoming a wedding photographer. I have been a Christian since I was 17 and my faith is hugely important to me. It reflects itself in the way I operate my business and the way I love on my clients.

Awkward moments give me great joy. Women like Kristin Wiig and Mindy Kaling are my jam. I have a poor imagination which means I can’t read anything sci-fi or fantasy. It kills me to wait for my bread to fully toast, therefore I almost never let the toaster do it’s job. My most played Pandora station would be “rap 2014”. It’s ratchet, you’ve been warned. I am an adventure seeking homebody. You’re likely thinking “Kristen that makes zero sense” and I would say you’re right, I don’t make sense. The safety of home is comforting, but daydreaming new adventures is exciting. Routine is where I like to be, while constantly seeking change is where my brain likes to be.

I always start books, but rarely finish them. I’m a bath person, because showers are too quick and tiring. I have come to critique the cake and DJ at every wedding I attend. My husband is my favorite human being I have ever met. Seriously, he’s my best friend and soulmate. I have a southern soul with a west coast style, but you can only have an accent when it’s late in the day and my mouth is tired. A tough weight lifting session gets me ready for the day, but it’s even better paired with lulu leggings. I talk a lot and my brain is a little bit all over the place as you’ve probably already noticed. Let’s move on, shall we?


I dig:

+ pattern mixing + hand-sketches + meat, all meat + messy hair + vintage mugs + people who smile with their entire face + bon iver + the smell of pine + singing in weird voices + tequila + club rap +

I don’t dig:

+ private instagram accounts + small talk + vegan cheese + lame DJs + apple candles + strawberry flavoring + over-edited skin + cold feet + mean grooms + the electric slide + sex jokes + morning breath +
