Kjersten's artistry is on point! So is her character for making you feel like yourself on camera. She captures emotion authentically. Thanks to her expertise and friendly nature we look natural instead of goofy and stiff in our engagement and wedding photos, which is how we usually look. I love how her suggestions on backdrops and poses turned out, and she did an excellent job of capturing our wedding events. I even LOVE our ceremony photos, which I was not expecting given the lighting, timing and distance constraints, plus she was like a fly on the wall. My entire family is still talking about how much they love Kjersten and how comfortable she made them feel now, months later. We look forward to more sessions with Kjersten to capture our family! I highly recommend Kjersten!

Kjersten has been absolutely wonderful from the very start. We had gotten our engagement photos and wedding shoot done with her and both turned out absolutely magical. She made sure our engagement photo shoot felt like a date between me and my now husband, and really caught the atmosphere between us. Our wedding photos are filled with authentic moments and she did a great job capturing them in time. She did amazing with some difficult family members and handled things very professionally. She got people out of their comfort zones to take more authentic photos. She made wonderful suggestions about the night that made things absolutely perfect for our wedding day.

So as the groom, I was not looking forward to taking pictures after our ceremony. But Kjersten changed all of that. She was amazing! She was so kind, organized, and was able to think on the fly when the weather didn't cooperate. My Wife Katharine and I could not recommend her more!! Our pictures turned out so great, we are so happy with the results. We plan to hire her again for some other portraits in the future. She's absolutely awesome!
