More about Chrissie K....
What do you love about your job?
I love couples that are crazy in love, coffee, being outdoors, creating art. I love photographing fun couples who tell me all about themselves during their engagement shoots and I love being a part of their wedding day and capturing such special memories that they and perhaps even their future grandchildren will cherish. I also love being a photographer. All aspects of it. I love gathering inspiration and then getting to see it come to life with my couples. I love meeting the coolest clients and laughing with them while I help them to be comfortable in front of my lens. My clients and I always have the best time together!
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done them all (maternity, newborn, young families, large extended families and reunions, headshots, engagements, weddings!). I make them special by connecting with clients and making them laugh, making them comfortable by offering lots of positive feedback, making them move around and really getting them to come out of their shell. I offer lots of posing, but I also love to capture their natural in-between moments.
