• Orlando Wedding Photographer Kristina Stockton

    I am an Orlando wedding photographer who loves to celebrate with energetic, fun, romantic couples getting married in Orlando, Central Florida, and worldwide. I am Lithuanian, and speak English fluently - until the end of the day when my tired brain refuses to translate for me anymore. Haha!
    I often tell people that I photograph weddings for selfish reasons - there's no other career where I'd get to experience that much love and happiness every weekend! I mesh best with outgoing, adventurous, geeky, head over heels in love, super romantic yet totally down to earth people. I love it when my clients become my friends!

    Besides wedding photography services, I also capture headshots, glamour portraits, and fashionable high school seniors in the Lake Buena Vista/Disney neighborhood.

As a photographer, I love Instagram – obviously. 😀  I am on IG constantly, either uploading new images, or simply scrolling through and liking hundreds of beautiful photos daily.  Even though I have been in Orlando FL for over 2 years now, I still find new wedding venues and cool locations to shoot senior portraits in, thanks to IG. I think of my own IG account as an online gallery where I can showcase my best work, favorite portraits, and behind the scenes shenanigans that inevitably happen whenever I’m behind the camera. Here’s a small glimpse into my photo life. Feel free to scroll through, enjoy, and perhaps you’d like to follow @PhotoKisses so you can actually “like” some of my stuff   😛

Janie and Scott got married in Guntersville National Park in Decatur AL, and I was invited to document this momentous occasion. I’ve known Janie for over 10 years, as we were dorm-mates back in college, and spent a lot of time with or near each other doing things that students do in tiny college towns, which in our case mostly meant CLICK TO CONTINUE READING >>

Lately, I have been on a cinemagraph kick. Sometimes when I want to play with a new piece of gear, or find an amazing location, or come up with a cool concept, I browse Model Mayhem to see if anyone is currently looking to do any fun shoots in the Orlando area. I enjoy discovering new faces to photograph!  So when Melissa from MM told me she wanted to shoot a Queen of the Jungle concept, I was so stoked! We chose Dickson Azalea Park in Orlando as our location, and used the gigantic ancient tree as our prop for this inspiration shoot. She looked very much like a lioness on the prowl!

Depending on your browser, you may need to give this about 5 seconds to load properly.

Recently, I participated in my first ever styled photoshoot. Having never photographed one,  I had no idea what to expect. My local lady-photographer group organized this southern peach themed session with a bunch of great vendors and 20+ photographers, including yours truly. I went into it armed only with the knowledge that it would be “peachy” – and it was! I would estimate this type of photoshoot to take about 2 hours in the real world, but with so many photographers and only one couple, we spent close to 5 hours working in the intense heat and humidity. We had a soft, romantic setting in the middle of nowhere near Dade City. The color palette was pastel pink and orange, and wait till you see the magnificent details in the full post. This session is definitely worth checking out if you’re planning on styling your wedding reception in any way, especially if you’re planning an intimate wedding with just close family and friends. And if you’re planning a styled engagement, elopement, or Day After shoot with me, I would love to hear your ideas!
