"Everyone desires to have their story told in a way that truly portrays the value + emotion of their life at a given time – and ours, in this season, happens to be a story of redemption, freedom + love.
We had seen, followed + admired the work of photographer Kristen Kaiser for over a year + had fallen in love with her talent. The way she tells stories through her lens is remarkably captivating + there was no question that we wanted our day to be captured + shared through her perspective.
We had a small, intimate wedding with about 10 family members present… what could go wrong? A “winter storm” shut the city down and nearly ALL our local vendors cancelling DAY OF.
Plans and expectations changed due to conditions out of our control, therefore I had to be realistic in thinking that if a local vendor has to cancel due to inclement weather conditions, I seriously can’t expect my photographer to travel to Central Alabama from Central Illinois. But she did - along with her second shooter. Multiple flights cancelled + a spontaneous road trip later… they showed up. This spoke VOLUMES!
Not only are Kristen Kaiser’s photographs a true work of art, but the integrity + client-centeredness of their business is unsurpassed. From the skype coffee date to the unpacking of my wedding photos in hand, the experience was a relaxed, fun + exciting one.
We knew we weren't just 'hiring' Kristen, but choosing to make an investment... in us, for our day. Our wedding day photographs are a treasure. Now those precious once-in-a-lifetime moments aren't just memories running through our minds but moments captured. Tangible reminders of… redemption, freedom, + love. Our story was a story well told."
