about KRIS RAE
I am a dork. I like learning. I figure out what makes things tick so that I can master the “whys” and “hows” in life. Everything I do, I do better than I did yesterday. I grew up in a family of printers and was encouraged towards art in general by my mother. In many ways, there really was no other choice for me. Not that I mind. I’ve been a photographer for fully half of my life, and I love every moment. To be honest (and I was once referred to as “honest to a fault” by my dad), at the beginning of my career, I never thought I would shoot weddings. Way back when I was just out of art school, I was working for newspapers and magazines and thought I was hot-sh*t. I wouldn’t touch them with a 10-foot-pole. But then, I got married & had kids and everything changed. In building a family, I realized the real reasons I fell in love with photography when I was 16: to make meaningful photographs of real people, preserving both the beautifully-mundane and monumental moments of a life well-lived. Now, I love meeting new couples and documenting their stories as they start their lives together.
I want all of our couples to get the coverage they need along with the prints and publications that are essential in preserving their memories & special moments for their own future families to enjoy throughout their lives. For my couples, I’m ready to cover every moment of your wedding, making myself available to you, not just for a set number of hours, but for your full day. When you book there will be no question of start-time or wondering when I’ll wrap. It is the most important day of your life (so far) and you’re trusting me to tell your story. So, I’ll be there beside you, chronicling the smiles, a few tears, and all your shouts of joy. Additionally, with all full-day coverage, each of my couples & I go on an engagement session. That way, I get to know you, and you get to know me just a little bit better. This time allows everyone to get nice and comfortable together and helps ensure a glitch-free wedding day. To round everything out, I’ve included the key elements that are the most important part of your wedding photography: tangible prints and products. A photograph doesn’t truly exist until it is made real, so we all need to print what we want to preserve. That is everything I can think of to get you started for the rest of your forever. Now, simply choose the collection, or let us build the a-la-carte package, that is right for you.

For the majority of the day, I stay very hands off, focusing 100% on the story. You won’t find me asking your friends to recreate moments, but you will find me ready to capture those moments before they even happen. During portraits, it’s a little different. I give plenty of direction, working to bring creative ideas and classic techniques to make images that will endure the years. Though I do direct during portraits, I focus on genuine moments between that direction to give you honest, natural photos. If that’s something that excites you, we’ll be a perfect fit.
