During the initial process it is so important to me to get to know you. Learning your love story is what gets me going. It always get me excited about your day. Love is love and it never gets old for me to hear how you met, who proposed to who, how did you both get to this moment right here and now. And with this information I cater my skillset for you specifically. The more I know about you the more I can create a custom and unique experience for you. I am not just there to take your photos, I want you to feel like you have another friend like you have someone to guide you.
fun little extras
I am latin, and I can be loud.
Helpful with big groups, and to get you excited.
I'm from Costa Rica if you are curious.
If I see a dog I will most likely...pretend not to be freaking out of excitement. So if you guys have a pet (dogs prefered but I don’t mind all the other cute animals), and want to incorporate it in your photoshoot I would be amazing.

What should you know about me?
A bit about my loves! My first love is my hubby- duh. I also tend to obsess over movies and tv shows, with anything supernatural or horror trumping all else. My third love is traveling and hiking. Smelling the campfire, finding new views never experienced, and that feeling after finishing a long hike. With having been to over 14 countries, I have a high appreciation of different cultures and maximizing my time checking out new spots. So take me on your journey, whether it be somewhere local or somewhere planes fly.

WEDDING IN WILLOW SPRINGS VINEYARD
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
ASHLEY & KEENAN
Khristel was absolutely amazing to work with right from the get-go. Very personable, friendly & always has your best interest in mind with everything! She is extremely organized and always willing to communicate with any questions you have prior to the big day. She has a great eye for choosing the best spots at your venue for photos, as well as the best timing to get the perfect shots. She is also very prompt with the timing of her photos afterward, which is so great! An incredible photographer and now a wonderful friend! She really felt part of the family & our special day wouldn't have been the same without her!
ELLA & IGOR
We just got our final digital photos back from Khristel for our wedding July 1st. Every single shot is beautiful and I can’t even think of a moment that was missed. We got to relive our big day all over again by going through our photos! Love the editing style, and the “fly on the wall” style of photography during the reception. Everything was perfect.
KRISTA & RENE
The day of the wedding was a breeze! and Khristel was great; she was fun bubbly and interacted with my guests and family. I didn't have to worry about asking her to do anything we were free to enjoy ourselves while she took photos and delegated guests and family for photos.
To sum it up Khristel is extremely professional, friendly, organized and accommodating all things I believe are very important when hiring a photographer. I would definitely recommend her and would use her again.
CLAIRE & PO
Khristel was the most phenomenal photographer for our engagement and wedding. We couldn't have asked for someone better! She was friendly, patient, good at giving direction without being bossy, organized, enthusiastic, happy to include our ideas... Plus, she was fun to hang out with and she helped me figure out the corset on my wedding dress! The photos turned out beautifully, she got every single shot we asked for and then some! They also arrived ahead of schedule and meticulously organized. Her selections were exactly what we wanted with SO many to choose from. We could never recommend her enough. Khristel takes gorgeous photos, but the experience of working with her calm, kind demeanor is honestly even better.
ELLIE & DANIEL
Khristel deserves 5 stars because of her professionalism, flexibility, kindness, and the quality of her work. My wedding photos were beyond my expectations, it was breathtaking.
