I'm Kristen.  I am obsessed with photographing love because it makes me feel alive. I live for the adrenaline, excitement, and positive energy surrounding each couple on their day. My style is all about capturing the authentic moment and raw emotion. These are truly the moments and the story that will be shared and cherished forever. I am "based" in Charleston, Maui (Jan-March) and San Diego. I am an avid traveler and happy to pack my gear and fly anywhere. 

I have shot elopements and weddings in as diverse settings as the rural countryside of Ireland, the sandy beaches of Mexico, the skyscraper jungle of NYC, and in my neighbor's living room.  
Wherever you write your love story, I'll be there. I feel grateful for the trust couples put in me and seek to create a body of images that show the heart of the couple, the beauty of the day, and that will be treasured for generations to come. I'm only for couples who look at their partner and think, "Life is better with you." 


For those who look at their partner and think, "Life is better with you."

Hi, I'm Kristen! I am obsessed with photographing love because it makes me feel alive. I live for the adrenaline, excitement, and positive energy surrounding each couple on their day. My style is all about capturing the authentic moment and raw emotion. These are truly the moments and the story that will be shared and cherished forever. I have shot elopements and weddings in as diverse settings as the rural countryside of Ireland, the sandy beaches of Mexico, the skyscraper jungle of NYC, and in my neighbor's living room. Wherever you write your love story, I'll be there. For each wedding or elopement shot, Better With You Photography gives back to someone in need. Each couple can choose if they would like me to photograph under-privileged high school senior portraits or rescue pups looking for a forever home in their name. I'm only for couples who look at their partner and think, "Life is better with you."

After hiring me for your wedding, each BWYP couple can choose, free of charge, one of the below options you would like me to complete in your name. It's like the Tom's shoes policy, one for one.

1. I will volunteer an afternoon photographing rescue pups who are looking for their forever homes. It's proven that a quality photo makes a pound dog more "adoptable".

or

2. I will gift a free senior portrait day to an underprivileged high school senior, which will build their self confidence/esteem. With this option, I provide the senior with an online gallery where he/she can download images from their session for free.
