Growing up in New Orleans, my grandmother threw many parties for her society friends and family. We kids would run around, play hide-and-seek and cause general mischief. Once I got a real camera, I turned it (with encouragement) on the guests and began my lifelong love of documenting all the people and moments that matter most. Especially the parties!
Since then, I’ve worked all over the world as a photojournalist and photographed hundreds of weddings and elopements. I earned a master's degree in digital photography from the School of Visual Arts in New York and spent a year on a Fulbright grant in Germany. (Und ja, I am fluent in German.)
I spent the last 15 years documenting Brooklyn Changing, which garnered press coverage from Architectural Digest and the "Today" show.
Because I like history, I live in a 100-year-old home just outside of New York City with my husband, daughter and ginger rescue cat, Prince Harry. When not photographing weddings, you can find me learning to box, refinishing old furniture and trying to keep my garden alive.
I know you are eagerly anticipating spending your wedding day in the company of family and friends. How often are all the people you love (and who love you) the most in the same place, all dolled up? The day(s) of your wedding will be an amazing opportunity to capture them celebrating with you.
We are there for the key moments like the first dance, but also specialize in the unplanned ones like a warm embrace with a grandparent, spontaneous group photo of college friends or unbridled joy of all kinds. (Especially on the dance floor!) By blending in with your guests, we can preserve these memories without being obtrusive. Except for the formal portraits. There we will take charge and guide you and your families through the process to expedite their creation.
And finally, we believe privacy is the ultimate luxury so therefore we don't share identifying images online. Details and decor images will be captured and can be share with vendors at your discretion.
All collections include photography coverage by Kristy and an assistant, high-resolution images via a password-protected online gallery with print release, in person or online album/print consultation and more. Travel to destinations worldwide available.
After the wedding, albums are available from Queensberry as well as archival pigment and real silver black and white prints.
Please inquire for details and to view select image galleries.
