Kris has been shooting since he was just a middle school kid, capturing everything that caught his attention with an old Minolta SLR. Over a decade later, he started shooting weddings and found that the excitement of the moment pushed him to new creative heights. He loves it more and more everyday. Most of our clients are looking for something different than the traditional wedding photographer, someone who is willing to test the limits of lighting and style. But above all our goal is in capturing personalities. In most of his work you feel like you walked in on a moment, rather than a posed shot. The best compliment ever paid to Kris was when someone after looking at his blog told him, " I feel like I know this couple even though I've never met them." We hope you feel like this too. In 2007 Kris and I (Cathy) got married. I have a background in the news business and work as an assistant to the studio work now that I take care of two little toe head boys. Although we live in Southern Orange County and love our digs, every year we take on a few East Coast weddings to spice things up. (Will someone please bring us to the Carribean?)
Natalie Williams, who has been running her own studio for the last 5 years, has finally teamed up with us in 2011 after Kris realized they have the exact same style (and that everyone loves Natalie) She has an incredible Modern Romantic style and clients RAVE about her which really gives us great flexibility during the busy season.
Jason Stringfellow also joined the team back in 2011 and we love showing off his edgy and awesomly fun style. Jason keeps us all laughing through the day - and his wife Emily assists with him when he leads a weddings.
Emily Knudsen is the newest member of the team and came on as a super creative behind the scenes editor. She second shoots a bit as well, but mostly loves making sure our brides get amazing images.
What a pleasure it is working with so many fun loving and high calaber individuals. It seems more like play than work! Hope to hear from you soon. Please drop us a line in the CONTACT section.
