Intimate Weddings and Elopements
for the starry-eyed wanderers, lovers + adventurous souls

Hi There

Come on in and make yourself at home.

I’m Kristen and I’m a wedding photographer co-based in Indianapolis, IN + Denver, CO. I’m always ready to go on an adventure or to travel some place new. I share my home with my five dog-children, my husband Nate, and a family of absurdly large aloe plants that I seem to have a knack for keeping alive.

Let’s make some art together.

Let’s be friends.

The Experience

Kristen was one of the best parts of our wedding. I honestly don’t even know how to explain what an amazing experience working with her was. She is one of the kindest people and has such a unique/artistic approach to her photography style. The weather was not on our side for our engagement session, and Kristen never minded that we had to reschedule at least 4 times. Deciding to work with Kae Marie Photography was the best decision my husband and I made. Our photos are so special to us. (It also helps that she loves dogs ☺️🐶)

From both a business and artistic standpoint, Kristen was a dream to work with. As far as communication, she was extremely prompt and accommodating to my many requests. Our wedding day was perfectly captured both in photos and video. She captured every important detail from our day, and somehow managed to do so without us even realizing she was there! Kristen maintained calm during the hectic and time-crunch portions of the day and was extremely efficient at rallying an especially large wedding party (22 people)! She had so many unique and artistic poses, but they all felt comfortable and natural. Kristen returned her work much quicker than expected and exceeded our expectations in both the quantity and quality of her work! :)

There aren’t enough words to describe how happy we are with our "at-home" engagement photos that Kristen took of us in our new home! From our initial conversation, she made it a seamless process- even being mid-renovations, she was able to make our vision work. Kristen is a true artist and her work speaks for itself but we are so grateful to have these memories to share now and in the future! Kristen, we can't thank you enough for capturing such a special time in our lives so PERFECTLY. I would highly recommend your work to anyone and will continue to enthusiastically refer you to our friends. THANK YOU!

This was the easiest and best choice we made the entire wedding. Kristen was exactly what you would expect and could hope for in a photog. She kept us on track, was open to those last minute “wait, wait, I want this photo, too!” moments, and snapped a few others that we didn’t even know we wanted. Can’t wait to get prints made! We love her!!

Kristen is such an amazing photographer. She looks outside of the box and puts an artistic twist on photography that you will cherish forever. My wife and I are so very lucky to have had Kristen for our big day and would recommend her time and time again. She is very dedicated and passionate in what she does-as you can see!

I couldn’t be happier with everything Kristen did for us! I have been following her on Instagram for years because I knew eventually I wanted her to do photos for me. Scheduling and contacting her was super easy. She also had plenty of helpful ideas about places to go to do the pictures (because I had no idea!) and lots of suggestions of what to wear/how to prep for the pictures and that was super helpful for us. My husband and I have never had professional photos done before so we really didn’t know what to expect and we were worried about us being too awkward. Kristen made it super easy and helped us SO much with posing! My husband and I seriously had a blast with the shoot and the photos came out amazing. I’m constantly getting questions about who did our photos because she did such a great job! I could not recommend her enough!

I’ve been following Kristen’s work for awhile, obsessing over her work actually lol. We met at a Starbucks and pretty sure we spent four hours talking wedding details and true crime. She def helped me with putting everything together and my constant texts about changing or adding ideas. She is so kind & her works speaks for itself. I am blown away at all of our photos from our day. I cannot say enough good things about Kristen & her work.

I don’t think we will ever use anyone else for photos. We have not only gained a photographer for everything, but a friend.

Kristen- you’re stuck with us haha.
