The Photographer

Hello future besties! I'm Kristina and I want to tell your love story. I want us to become such good friends that you feel excited when I show up on your wedding day just like you would for an old friend. I want to capture the real you and your love for each other. The small touches, the longing gazes and the joyful laughter of your wedding day. I want you to know that you can trust me with your wedding day, that after 200+ weddings I know what's important to my couples and their families.

intimacy, emotion, connection and family.

I was drawn to weddings by chance, but the storytelling kept me around. The raw beauty of a life's promise being made between two people and their families. When not shooting weddings, you can find me reading a Fantasy or Sci-fi book, volunteering on the board of my kids Co-Op Preschool, decorating our home and hanging out with my family.

The Brand

The name Arch & Elm came from two of my beautiful children, Archibald and Ellowyne. It is through my children that I truly see the beauty in the world. Since starting Arch & Elm, my husband and I have added to our family welcoming Juniper in October 2022. I've had the joy to capture 200+ weddings, that's a lot of tearing up through emotional speeches and grinning from ear to ear as my clients share their vows with each other before their family and friends. I cherish my ability to take a snapshot of such important moments in people's lives.

Arch & Elm is an unabashed supporter of the LBGTQIA+ & BIPOC community, here we believe love is love.
