About Krista

Who I


I am a laid-back, no-fuss kind of gal. I dig creativity, wit & sarcasm, and BIG dreams. I daydream more than any human rightfully should. But despite my head always being in the clouds, I like to think that my feet are always firmly planted on the ground. I practice immediacy every day because life is too dang short. Living in the now is most important. Right NOW.

Adventuring with my dude makes me the happiest, and so do killer floral arrangements. I’m pretty sure I was a mountain dwelling florist in a past life. When I’m not pouring my heart into my work (which is 99% of the time), you can find me out in nature or on the couch watching Scandal. I’m 50/50 as an explorer and homebody, but always 100% photographer. I genuinely enjoy working hard; Which is ironic, because I don’t view my job as “work” — it’s euphoria.

Thistle_AboutPullQuoteHeaderI’m the one who wants to run wild with you and your love, climb mountains and shout from them. I want to learn your hearts and photograph them. I believe that no two images are alike and that’s how it should be. I believe in real moments and the value of being genuine. Just as every image is unique, so is every story. It’s my passion to document every individual detail of your story down to the core. My work is equal parts of myself, yourself, and authenticity. I crave connection. I don’t want to be your vendor, I want to be your friend. You deserve my all. I don’t do anything half ass. I don’t take my job lightly. I always go for gold. I am fueled by my constant inspiration and zest for life. I believe in going against the grain and following your heart. I promise that if you give me your trust, I will create rad photographs that are uniquely you, perfected by the love and dedication I have for photography.
