Capturing magical moments in Southern California and around the world

The Fairytale Photographer

Hey I’m Kristen!

For 10 years. I have been capturing the magic of love stories all over the world for couples who believe in Happy Ever After. Aside from shooting weddings and mentoring photographers, I love watching Netflix documentaries, eating mac 'n' cheese, thrift shopping, and singing karaoke. 

I'm a mama, a wife to my high school sweetheart, a dreamer, and hustler (Enneagram 3w4!).

My Fairytale Story

Follow our Journey 

2007

At 17 years old, during my senior year of high school, I was swept away by Andrew. That cute boy on the football bleachers would eventually become a man with ambition, work ethic, passion, and a kind heart. He would also become my husband.

In 2008, Andrew and I graduated from high school and began our lives in the real world. I was beginning to become interested in photography and asked my parents for a camera as a graduation gift. However, I still had no idea what I wanted to do as a career.. I got a job doing promotional events at a local radio station. This also included dressing up in the fox mascot costume!

2010 was my turning point! In March, I photographed my first wedding. In April, I flew to Nashville to attend a photography workshop that changed my life. I came home from that, knowing that this was exactly what I wanted to do with my life. By the end of the summer, I had upgraded my camera and dropped out of college to pursue photography as my career!

Within my first year of shooting weddings, I discovered my love for all things fairytale. So I proposed a crazy idea to Andrew… “I really want to pursue a fairytale look for my brand… so I need photos of castles for my portfolio… let’s go to Ireland, so I can take photos”. And that’s exactly what we did! Little did we know how big of a part this country would end up playing in our lives!

In August 2014, Andrew gave me the surprise of a lifetime by flying across the country to propose to me. I was in Virginia, visiting family, and my cousin (who was also a photographer) was doing a little photoshoot of me. Andrew (what was supposed to be at home in California) showed up during the shoot and got down on one knee with the most heartfelt proposal.

On September 12th, 2016, Andrew and I got married at a magical castle in Ireland (remember how I mentioned how important this place would become?!). We were surrounded by 35 of our closest friends and family members, and it was absolutely surreal.

Ever since I can remember, I have wished for a daughter. I even had a trunk full of little treasures for my future mini-me. On September 9th, 2018, that dream came true! Andrew and I welcomed the light of our lives, Ireland Jade Roche.

 Kristen did our engagement photos in an epic secret area (she has the best location ideas!) She is truly gifted at directing couples in posing so the photos look natural! It was so fun! We ended up using our engagement session photos for our wedding invitation!

"She is honestly the best in every way. I was in great hands with her from the beginning. This is my first time ever hiring a photographer or getting my pictures taken and she made the whole process a DREAM. I paid for a stylized shoot which put her vision at the forefront but I never felt steamrolled or my voice silenced. "

" If you want ARTWORK and not just photos, you will not be disappointed."
