The first thing my husband and I booked after the proposal was an engagement/wedding photographer. It was the one thing I was very particular about, spending weeks reviewing different photographers' portfolio, style, and pricing. We chose Kristine because she fit all our requirements.
What we loved most about Kristine was her flexibility. With our engagement photo shoot, one of our locations had photography restrictions and Kristine had a backup plan to bring us to another location. We also had a bit of a window between two photo shoot locations and Kristine offered to squeeze in a third location. When my husband and I received our engagement photos, we were ecstatic about how well the two on-the-fly locations looked---we thought they were even better than our selected location! On the day of our wedding, the reception ran longer than anticipated since food was presented to guests 15 minutes later and our DJ had to flip speeches/activities scheduled in our program, but Kristine and her second shooter Zach were again accommodating to provide coverage overtime so that we wouldn't miss important memories such as cake cutting. Hindsight is 20/20, so the one thing we would request done differently is to have a panoramic shot of the reception courtyard space before guests arrived. There were plenty of close-ups of table decor and flowers but no shot of the entire reception space. We would certainly recommend Kristine Herman Photography to family and friends!

From our engagement session to the big day, Kristine was an absolute joy to work with! She is truly an amazing, talented photographer whose awesome personality is only exceeded by her incredible work! For our engagement shoot, she had tons of ideas and gave great direction while still creating an easy, comfortable atmosphere. And, despite the wedding day chaos and commotion, she captured EVERYTHING we asked for AND MORE, giving us beautiful images that people have been gushing over ever since!!!!!

Kristine is amazingggg! We were going to California for our anniversary trip, and ended up changing the dates a few times. She was so understanding and flexible with us, gave us driving tips on how to get to our shoot location, and was overall just the sweetest person! Kristine is professional, fun, and made us feel at ease during our anniversary photo session. And the best part of course is that our photos were amazing! I seriously love every single one of them. The turnaround time for getting our photos back was also great! I cannot recommend her enough! Thank you Kristine!

Kristine is not only personable and easy to work with but she an an amazing talent. She will be famous one day so if you have a chance to work with her please do! Her pictures bring out emotions few can do.

We recently had an engagement shoot and then our wedding done. Kristine is friendly, professional, fun, and still easy-going. I appreciated her ability to set up lots of romantic shoots that I would not have known how to do. I also wanted to do some more fun and silly photos and she accommodated those well too. Just tell her what you want and she's game, and she'll set up beautiful looking shots on her own too if you just want her to create everything.

Kristine takes incredible photos, is so friendly and approachable, and really listens to the couple to give them what they want. Can't recommend her enough!

Kristine captured our wedding day beautifully and was a joy to work with. Her prices were very fair and I am glad now looking back to understand that she provided us with a service not just on the day-of our wedding, but spent so much time with us following up after that 8 hours with touching up photos, setting them up on her site to view, and working with me on an album. I have already recommended her to close friends and family.
She met with us in advance to make sure we were a good fit and that we were on the same page about the photos and styles that we wanted. She was accessible and happy to answer our questions and give suggestions about our photo requests and day-of-schedule, which was incredibly helpful. The day-of, she and her partner were prompt (they helped get us moving!), present and helpful, but blended in with the day. She made sure we got all of the posed photos we wanted (we had a long list) and though we only had her stay for a portion of the reception, she caught the flow and feel of our entire day beautifully. We absolutely loved the mix of candid and posed photos - we feel like we are re-living the day when we look through them. She really did take time going through the shots and posting great options for us to pick from. Her website and photo portal are incredibly easy to access and made the task of organizing our album photos way less overwhelming than we thought it was going to be. Our package included an album that Kristine puts together. We just finished with the back and forth with her and have finalized our album template. She was patient, responsive and very flexible - she gladly used her expertise to layout photos and was very open to what ended up being some very specific requests on my end. She also gladly shared some photos with me before the date laid out in our contract so I could have some options to use for a "thank you." Georgia, Napa Valley, CA

Kristine is an AMAZING photographer! We cannot thank her enough for shooting our wedding day. We were absolutely thrilled with the results. We will continue to use her to capture all our milestones in life. Not only is she an amazing photographer, she is also super kind and very easy to work with. She was able to keep our bridal party in check as well as all the family members. Everyone raved about her and her partner Zack! You cannot go wrong picking Kristine!

Huge thank you to Kristine and her partner Zack! We have had a blast working with Kristine! Her work is amazing and in my opinion it's like she's been doing this all her life! She didn't pressure us or force us to do goofy poses. Everything about Kristine's work is natural! We love that she uses film and that she does her best to capture natural light! Kristine keeps things professional, but also very fun!! She is down to earth and totally connected with us! Kristine has lots to offer and does her research! She had great suggestions for where we'd take our engagement photos based on the style we gave her! And she hadn't been to our wedding venue before but looked into it and the day of the wedding and already chides the best spots for photos around the venue! We are so so happy with all of her work! Thank you for everything!

Kristine is an amazing photographer and her work truly speaks for itself. I found Kristine through instagram and fell in love with her style, the natural light and colors in her work are beautiful. You can tell she has a great eye for photography. We initially booked her for our engagement photos and after that experience we knew we wanted her to shoot our wedding as well. Kristine was more than willing to do some (extreme) hiking to get amazing photos for us and she was great at directing us and making us feel comfortable. Zach was her second shooter on our wedding day and he also got some great photos of my husband and his groomsmen getting ready. They work well as a team and definitely assisted in keeping our wedding day flowing smoothly. Kristine suggested that we set aside time to do sunset photos on our wedding day and this was a fantastic idea. The pictures turned out beautiful and it was a really fun part of the evening. We are so thankful for the beautiful photos we got for both our engagement and wedding! It is impossible to pick a favorite and we will cherish them forever. I would recommend Kristine in a heartbeat and I sincerely hope we get to work with her again in the future!
