I specialize in classic Virginia romances + weddings with rolling countrysides + distant mountain views.

Philosphy.

I’m in the business of relationships and heirlooms. As your photographer, it’s important for us to click (pun intended). Photography is a deeply personal service and in order to deliver an experience that is comfortable, playful and professional, we need to know each other. That’s the secret to great portraits, trust. I build our relationship through communication and education, so when we finally spend time together in person we are ready to create portraits that are of your truest self. Portraits turn into heirlooms and these will be a reminder of where you (and your partner) were at this moment.

1. Meet & reserve

Our first meeting is casual and virtual, where we will get to know each other. I’ll ask you easy questions about you and your partner, your relationship, your special proposal and dreams for your wedding. I’ll share with you my full client experience and ease any wedding worries you may have. After our call, you’ll receive an email that will guide you through the reservation process with ease.

2. education & preparation

Your date has been reserved and we are officially working together! I’ll share my resources with you, meaning you’ll have access to my Preferred Vendor List and Client Lounge, where you’ll be able to browse on your own time through information like: preparing for your engagement session, benefits to a first look, timeline examples, how to think about family formals and so much more.

3. engagement session

Engagements should be celebrated, because you’re only a fiance for a very short period of time. Together with the help of a questionnaire, we’ll come up with the perfect location for your engagement session! Personally, I prefer a place where you have history or a favorite activity you do together like wine tasting. It makes the experience that much more genuine and fun! As a bonus, we get to know each other in person before your wedding and it’s wedding day portrait practice!

4. wedding day

You’ll start the day relaxing and getting ready, while I’ll start by photographing your hand selected details. I’ll guide you through portraits with your wedding party and family members. We will celebrate your ceremony and take time alone to create those intimate romantic portraits before you head off to the reception to toast and dance with your favorites!

5. gallery & Heirloom album

Your full wedding gallery - with all of your very special moments - will be delivered through email. You’ll have access to all of the images and will be able to easily share the memories of your wedding day with your friends and family! Heirloom albums are distinctive to your personal style and therefore take time in thoughtfully creating. This leather or linen covered album will intimately share the story of your wedding day.

"From our first meeting with Krysta, we knew that hiring her to shoot our wedding would not only provide us with high-quality documentation of our event, but also ease much of the stress that comes along with planning such an important day. Hiring her was the first and easiest decision we made throughout the year-long planning process. She is sweet and warm while still being professional, forward-thinking, and giving great attention to detail. Her network of vendors gave us trusted referrals to work with that helped bring together and make our wedding such a wonderful experience for us and our family and friends."

"A helpful takeaway for future brides looking to hire Krysta, she walked us through every step of the process, and made us feel comfortable during an exciting (albeit stressful) time. I struggled to be present during the day, and she reassured me that she would “tell the story of the day” through her images. After the wedding, I started wishing I had been “in the moment“ more. It wasn’t until I received her images that I felt totally different about the day - I saw through her images how others experienced the day. I was able to look at the details of the venue, felt that I looked beautiful, caught so many beautiful details that I missed, and that would not have been possible without Krysta."

"I can’t say enough good things about Krysta! From our first initial phone conversation I felt instantly connected to her. I was always told you want to feel comfortable with your photographer and that’s exactly how she made us feel. Fast forward to meeting her in person at our engagement shoot and it felt like we were hanging out with a friend!  Her pictures captured our wedding day perfectly and I loved how many candid shots we have from the day that I wouldn’t have seen otherwise! She is the kind of person who you just want to sit down and have a glass of wine and relax with (by the way, we did this as well!) We miss you Krysta :)"

"Krysta far exceeded my expectations for a photographer. With her wedding package, you get an engagement session. We were both nervous beforehand because we had never taken professional photos before, but Krysta directed us on how to pose and the pictures looked phenomenal. At the wedding, family members commented on how much they liked Krysta because she knew exactly what to do and told them how they should stand, where to look, where to put their hands etc. She took incredible photos that my husband and I will treasure forever. I am so glad we hired her as our photographer."
