Hi, I’m Krista.

I am a Colorado transplant living happily in Seattle, which means I can safely drive you home in the snowstorm, in a manual transmission vehicle, and then make you a good cup of coffee.
If making mix tapes had been a competitive sport in high school, I’m pretty sure I would have received some kind of medal for my abilities. I even named my business after that love of making mix tapes ’cause –I’ve accepted it– that’s how I geek out.
I’ll tell you about my whale phobia if you promise not to laugh. (Hell, I’ll tell you about it anyway and then laugh with you.)
In general, people say I’m pretty delightful and delighted; I’m an introvert who prides myself on being a good listener and a calming presence as much as possible… being photographed can be intimidating, so let’s work through it together! I jumped ship from my corporate interior design job years ago to become a wedding photographer, and haven’t looked back since. Also, I freakin’ love my job. I’d love to hear from you! -K
