Kristin from Lively Photography
Hello and welcome! I’m so excited that you’re taking the time to get to know me. My name is Kristin, and I am a wedding photographer based in Wichita, Kansas, who is all about capturing natural, joyful moments on a couple’s wedding day. My life centers around Christ, family, and telling love stories! I’m ready to serve you on one of the happiest days of your life. When you work with me, it will feel like you’re working with a friend because I genuinely care about your love story! Let’s see if I might be a good fit for your wedding day.
My Photography Style
My photography style celebrates joyful moments using natural light and genuine emotions. I’m dedicated to capturing each love story that comes my way in a way that is unique to the love between the couple. I blend a candid, documentary-style approach with taking the traditional portraits your grandparents will love and frame. I want my clients to feel like they are having fun with a friend while they’re in front of the camera. This approach means more authentic, spontaneous moments that exude real joy. The love on a wedding day is something so special that you can’t ever recreate, so I do everything I can to provide an unforgettable photo experience while making couples feel comfortable and stress-free. When you work with me, you will come away from your big day with light, joyful photographs that capture the raw and heartfelt emotions you felt on one of the best days of your life. I aim to create vibrant memories that you will cherish for a lifetime.
My Experience As a Wichita, Kansas, Wedding Photographer
I began my journey as a wedding photographer in 2017. With experience shooting over 50 weddings, I have had the privilege to capture a variety of different wedding styles, venues, and traditions. Because I’ve experienced so many different wedding days, I can help each of my couples to create their perfect wedding timeline so that everything runs smoothly. I believe the key to capturing beautiful wedding photos is to create a stress-free environment, so I prioritize clear communication, organization, and planning. And that’s why I offer complimentary consultations so we can chat about your vision for your wedding day and see if I’m the right fit for you. I strive to provide an excellent communication experience, which means you can count on me to guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have along the way.
I have a digital media degree in photography, graphic design, and website coding, which means I have the technical expertise to capture and edit your photos to perfection. My specialty is capturing epic composition shots and getting genuine laughs from couples to create images that will stand the test of time. When you work with me, you can rest assured that you are working with a skilled and experienced photographer who will go above and beyond to capture every special moment on your wedding day.
Get to Know Me Better
When I’m not behind the camera or editing a session, I love to explore new places and try new foods. A few of my recent favorites in Wichita include Cafe Bel Ami, The Sweet Spot, and Doma. Whether it’s a hole-in-the-wall spot or a five-star restaurant, I love to try new things! My family (and my dog, Ocean) are the most important people in my life. I always enjoy spending quality time with them! I’m the oldest of 5 siblings, and I wouldn’t trade my family for the world! We love playing games and cheering on the Chiefs when we are together. My pup, Ocean, is my pride and joy, which means she gets spoiled rotten and knows it! I love taking her for walks and enjoying all of the cuddles. A few of our favorite spots to walk in Wichita are the Great Plain Nature Center & College Hill Park. Other than that, I can’t say I have many hobbies because photography is my hobby, but it’s also what I do professionally! (I can’t really call it a job because I love it so much!) When I do have some free time, though, I enjoy reading, trying new places to eat, going on walks, and volunteering at my church. I also love to travel! I just took a solo trip out to Colorado. Up next on my bucket list are trips to Maine and Hawaii.
