[Wedding Wire review] Photokisses’ service and package was fantastic! We were drawn to Kristina’s photography because of the keen eye she has for capturing personal moments and also adding a fun flair to the photos. We knew we could trust her based strong personal recommendations – she was the person we wanted to have professionally document such a special event. We knew we had made the right choice even before the wedding based on her attentive interactions via skype and email (ours was a destination wedding for Kristina). Her willingness to travel all the way to the West Coast for us was remarkable, and her energy and flexibility when she arrived was admirable.
We felt very comfortable working with her on the day, appreciating her sense of humor, her professionalism and her obvious skill for capturing moments that were flashing by before us. She had so many creative ideas and was willing to drive all over the city with us to find the best shots. She was able to make this experience a seamless one – from the staged portraits at various locations around our city, to the candid snapshots she captured at the reception.
Our guests enjoyed interacting with Kristina as well, and many commented on her talent. She even set up a “live” photo stream on an iPad during the reception of some of the shots she had taken before and during the ceremony! This was very impressive and gave everyone a sense of the beautiful finished photographs to come.
Now we have seen the final product. It was so emotional looking at them – seeing the event through her eyes, and being able to see other moments we were not a part of. She captured the mood and vibe of our day so perfectly. Our family and friends keep complimenting us and its been so much fun to hear them gossiping back and forth about the photographs. They are truly memories to last a lifetime. We can’t wait to receive the hard copy album that was included in our package!
Hire Kristina at Photokisses! You will be in the best hands possible.

[Wedding Wire review] Kristina made our special day perfect. She made our whole wedding party feel completely comfortable. The whole day everyone just kept saying, “I Love her.” We fealt so comfortable and happy that all of the smiles in the pictures were just produced from how fun we were having. Her style complemented mine and I couldn’t have asked for a more picture perfect day.
[Wedding Wire review] Kristina was a superb photographer. When I first met her, I could tell that her energy and passion would be completely focused on what I needed on the wedding day. Her sample pictures were gorgeous and even my husband was impressed. She consistently kept in contact and always answered my many email questions quickly. Hiring her and making plans for the day was so easy. She even met with me at the venue to see it together. Then, the big day was a breeze with Kristina and her partner shooting away. She was patient, attentive, flexible, and funny. Her energetic directions were always clear and her humor made the most stoic guests smile. Finally, the pictures were stunning! So many of my guests raved about the online gallery. Kristina captured the pure joy of the day, and I will always treasure my beautiful photographs.

“Hi there Kristina – it was a great party and great fun! I hope you had a good time! I am terribly nervous in front of the camera and seem to make a fool of myself trying to “Look Normal”…some of the shots you had shown me while we were @ the Holiday were amazing and put my nervousness at rest. Thank you so much for chasing us around in the snow and getting YOUR feet wet (& for climbing on the wet rock to get the snow angels). I can’t thank you enough for being our photographer, for putting up with our silliness and for hanging out in the snow!”

“Kristina, Chris and I want to thank you so incredibly much for the incredible job you did with our wedding photos. I already had a great idea of how professional and organized you were going to be based on our communication prior to the wedding. I loved how upfront you were about what to expect, and also so flexible in letting Chris and I pick some shots that we wanted to make sure you captured. The photos are absolutely stunning and we’ve been telling everybody how amazing of a job you’ve done. They are so creative, gorgeous, and I feel like you’ve highlighted not only the day,but our feelings and emotions. I also loved how you paid special attention to details that Chris and I would have not thought of, and they are some of our favorite pictures! It seriously feels like art when we look at them. I couldn’t be happier. Thank you so much for the gorgeous photos, and making us feel so comfortable and relaxed on our special day. You made me feel so beautiful and natural and I never felt like it was awkward or posey- you even got some stunning shots of Chris alone- wow!! Thank you, thank you, thank you Kristina, I could never have imagined more perfect wedding photos….”

“You are truly an amazing artist. I still cannot stop gawking at the beautiful pictures we have on our walls. We recieved SO MANY comments on our photos. I brought them into work to show my coworkers and one of the girls loved them so much I gave her your name and number. I believe she actually decided to book you for her wedding!”

“My wife and I are very pleased with our wedding photos. We have received numerous compliments from friends and family members on our photos. Kristina was wonderful to work with and really captured the emotion of the day. We asked her for a photojournalistic style of wedding pics and she really delivered. The pictures are gorgeous. She also did a great job working with our children too. We would highly recommend her to anyone in the area. Thank you Kristina.”

“We want to thank Kristina so much for capturing one of the most important parts of our lives. I seriously could not be happier. She took wonderful maternity shots. My husband and I were so impressed with her. She’s this tiny, spunky woman who obviously loves what she does. She came to our home and spent a good hour with us. She was moving our heavy furniture everywhere and I believe she got caught in the rain when we did some outside shots! She was amazing with our poodle. She paid so much attention to her and kept her occupied while we had our pictures taken-this is a very important quality to have-to be able to photograph AND control a crazy dog you’ve never met!!! I recommend Kristina highly without reservation. We have treasured the art she has created. I now look at the photos on my wall while I’m holding my two little miracles.

“Your professionalism, creativity, and photographic talent were all excellent. We could not have asked for better pictures. They were just what we wanted. Every detail of our wedding was captured from us to family to the atmosphere. Thank you so much.”

” My husband and I were so excited that we were able to hire a professional photographer for our wedding. When we learned that our budget would allow for it, there was only one photographer I wanted – Kristina! Kristina did an absolutely beautiful job with the pre-ceremony, ceremony, reception and formal photos. My husband and I were very pleased with her professionalism. She made it easy for us to not have to worry if our day was being recorded well. We knew the pictures would turn out terrific and they did!!! And she even dealt well with family who did not want to be photographed in the large family photos…in fact she dealt a lot better with them than we did! She was able to capture everything I could have ever hoped for. Everyone who has seen the photos has complimented her work. I will cherish the pictures forever. Thank you for being so willing to travel there with us to record these precious times!”

“Kristina, the pictures you took are great! We were very happy with the work you did for us and will happily work with you again in the future. You were professional in demeanor and the quality of the finished photos. We thought you did your job very well. You definitely have the eye to excel at photography – good luck! Thanks again for everything you did for us – the work was, again, fantastic!”
~The Andis Family
“You took photos of myself and I loved the photos sooooo much, that I brought my two little girls back for you to do their photos… They were so natural and the photos were perfect. I have recommended you to everyone I know and will continue to. You take such wonderful and natural photos… The lighting, and surroundings are always perfect. I havent found anyone else with your talent and thoughtfulness…”
~ Teresa Thompson and family
“We were so pleased with Kristina’s gorgeous work! We used her photos of our engagement as a ‘party favor’ at our wedding reception, and had so many compliments. Everyone was impressed, not only with the high quality of her pictures, but also with her ability to successfully capture the un-posed, natural moments. Those seemed to be everyone’s favorites. We would recommend Kristina to anyone–she’s extremely professional and fun to work with. Thank you for adding such a personal touch to our wedding.”
