I know what it's like to run a wedding photography business, because I had one myself. I know all about the endless tweaking of pricing pdfs and pinterest shot lists and telling the groomsmen their pink shirts are actually "aggressive salmon" to soothe their egos (you're welcome to steal that line, btw). The long days, the sore feet, the endless editing. I know. I KNOW.

I got lucky already having a design background, so I never had to worry about standing out from the crowd when it came to my website. My website and brand were what got me bookings and set me apart, brought in the clients and paid the bills.

I'd like to help you do the same. Stand out. Be yourself. Get clients.

Hi, I'm Kristen - cat lady, introvert, designer of the internets, recovering photographer, heavy consumer of true crime podcasts, lover of all black clothes but colourful everything else, super gay fierce fat femme, and expert napper. 

I learned photography by shooting bands.

I shot everyone from Rihanna and her umbrella, Bon Jovi and his hips to Lady Gaga and her piano.

I muscled between burly men and their Slipknot. I hustled between screaming girls and their Bieber.

I dodged elbows. I ducked bottles. I sidestepped bursts of fire.

Because during the late night shows and week-long festivals – in amongst the crowds and the lights and all the harmonious chaos – I found my eye.

Those years with a lens in hand taught me everything I needed to know to be the designer I am today.

I know what it’s like to jostle shoulder-to-shoulder with your competition.

And I loved every second of it.

I know what it’s like to try to discover your unique angle amongst the noise.

I know what it takes to move from page-three-good to front-cover-EPIC.

How I shot then is exactly how I design now. With purpose. With passion. With an unending desire to create a visual that captures the vibe you’re putting out so they’ll want to pick it up by the gorram armful.

I know what it’s like to have to fight your way to the front.

Design was my day job and photography was my dream. And eventually I took the big leap to making both my full-time career.

When I started shooting weddings I figured it was all the same really. Long days shooting festivals being harassed by drunk people vs long days shooting weddings... being harassed by drunk people ;) You get it.

Sadly many years of carrying heavy gear began to disagree with my body and I had to hang up my camera straps, returning to the design I'd always done.. but now something was different.

Now I knew the photography world as well, I knew all about the late nights googling other photographer's brands and packaging ideas, oogling others' shots, drooling over gear and wishing I could go to all the photography conventions. I know how hard it is to be just another photographer in a sea of photographers.

BUT, I also learned what it takes to succeed in the photography industry. How to brand myself to stand out and organise my website to get enquiries and make bookings. I get your world, because I was in your world.

Let me help you stand out.

So, why should you hire me as your designer?
 I create bold branding and inventive colourful websites that convert and bewitch. I don't follow the trends and I don't do minimalist - so you'll stand out like WHOA in the sea of sameness. 
 
Basically, I'm all about helping you create your sparkly unicorn dream brand that's all pretty party at the front with built-in business building strategy in the back. Like a super cool businessy mullet.
