I Wanna Work With You!
let's make some magic.
I’m looking for couples who are going to do this whole wedding thing their own way. Jam pack tons of personalized touches and thought into every aspect. Couples who appreciate art. Who will bring me into their lives and let me unfold their stories naturally. Who want magical things, works of art and who value photography as an art form. Couples who have style + personality and want that to show in their images in an authentic yet artistic way.
LIMITED AVAILABILITY
I typically take on 20-25 weddings a year depending on how the dates are spaced out and how many weddings include video. I’m looking to create art and give you a personalized and custom experience. Being able to do that takes time and intention and isn’t something I can mass produce so to be able to bring my best, I am selective in the work I do take on.

What You Can Expect From Me

Artistic + Unique Images

I love to try new things, break all of the rules, experiment with different techniques and create images that would be nearly impossible to recreate. I want to give you unique photos that aren’t just recreations of Pinterest images. That include motion and genuine emotion.

Heart + Soul

I’m the type of person who puts in 110% into everything I commit to. I want these images to blow you away, to be unique to you, your love story and really capture the essence of who you are as couple. I'm going to pour everything I've got into this.

A Personalized Experience

I want to be here throughout the whole process for any concerns or questions that arise. I want to give you recommendations and advice if you need it. I want to be a friend, someone you can rely on and trust to help make your photos everything you've dreamed of.

Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION

How Many Photos Can We Expect?

ANSWER

I wanna spoil ya’ and give you so many photos that you have no idea what to do with them all.

For WEDDINGS I deliver a minimum of 800+ gorgeous hand-edited photographs and 200+ for ENGAGEMENTS.

QUESTION

How Long Do We Have to Wait for Our Photos?

ANSWER

I don’t want you to have to wait around forever because I’m just as excited as you are to show your photos to everyone. I ALWAYS post some sneak peeks to tide you over.

Weddings are delivered in 6-8 weeks or less, Engagements are delivered in 4-6 weeks or less and Wedding Films are delivered in 2-4 months or less.

QUESTION

How will you send us our photos?

ANSWER

I send over all the edited photos to you in an online proofing + print ordering gallery where you can view the images, share with family + friends, download them, and order professional quality prints through me if you wanna.

For weddings I also send over a flash drive of the images for you to keep forever and ever.

QUESTION

We are awkward. Will you tell us what to do?

ANSWER

Yes, yes yes! The very beginning of a shoot always feels a little awkward as you get used to being in front of a camera, together (it's totally normal.) I have a ton of little tricks and poses that will help you relax right into those gorgeous natural feeling images.

I also really can't say enough good things about doing an engagement session with me before your wedding. It just makes the photos on your wedding day SO much better because you get used to how I work and "pose" and you get over the awkward parts pre-wedding when we have a limited time frame to actually get into the really natural images. Trust me, it's SO worth it.

QUESTION

Do we need a second photographer?

ANSWER

I photograph about 75% of my weddings solo. I feel more than confident in being able to capture the moments you would expect and provide tons of variety (I always shoot with two cameras equipped with various lens lengths so I can get a variety of up-close and far away images.)

With that being said if your wedding is really large (250+ guests, a bridal party with 16+ members,) your getting ready locations are really far away from each other and/or your venue, or you just have a lot of activities going on at the same time, it might be essential to have a second photographer.

Also, if you book me for photography AND videography there will be someone else with me that day to make sure nothing is missed. More than likely that someone will be my fiance, Nate who is a wiz at recording great sound for video and capturing amazing footage and images!

QUESTION

Will you travel for weddings?

ANSWER

Heck yes! I’ve been all over the U.S., England and France. I love traveling and would be more than willing to explore somewhere with you.

Typically I require 2 nights of hotel accommodations, airfare, and a rental car. In some cases only hotel accommodations may be applicable so just send me an email and we can talk logistics.

QUESTION

Do you have insurance?

ANSWER

Most Definitely.

QUESTION

How do we make it official?

ANSWER

I require a signed contract (that outlines a bazillion worst-case-scenario-situations) and 25% of the package fees up front as a non-refundable retainer to secure your date. The rest I split into 3 payments that are spread out with the final amount due one month out from your wedding date.

CLIENTS TESTIMONIALS

Tori S.

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! :)

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 ☺️🐶)

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!!
