“Kristy has photographed some of the most special moments in my life in a way that is indescribable. She shot my maternity photos and the birth of my daughter and I will cherish the photos for the rest of my life. She is able to grab the true live emotion of the moment and she captures it for you to keep forever. The photos that grace the walls of my home are simply just that of my family, but she has transformed simple photos of my family into art . Everyone who sees them can help but compliment. Photos captured by this amazingly talented photographer are truly priceless.”


“Kristy’s photos have always touched me, so I was more than honored when she agreed to photograph our wedding in Hawaii. Kristy did an amazing job capturing the essence of our event. She put in 110% and was very dedicated. Our photos are amazing and I will hire her again in the future for our next big event!”

“We could not be any more pleased with the photos you took of our wedding. We knew right after meeting you that you were the best, and only fit for our wedding day. You were so flexible and sensitive to our budget. You are kind, observant, and thorough in your work. Only your warmth outshined your professionalism, and we were so pleased with the results of the day. Above all, you really capture the beauty and the emotion in every photo, and you’re worth every cent and then some! We will be using your services again for other photographic needs soon.”

“Kristy was such a pleasure to work with! As a bride planning my own wedding, I wanted vendors that I could completely trust to do their job very well with little instruction from me. I'm a perfectionist and I wanted to sit back and enjoy the wedding day. Kristy was perfect in this regard and all of her pictures were so creative and captured everything I hoped they would. She also photographed our engagement session and gave us a wide variety of shots and locations around the wooded seashore. We will definitely use her again to capture the next big events in our lives.”

“I can't imagine a better wedding photographer experience than we had with Kristy of Volatile Photography. She's truly as good as it gets. I found Kristy on the Wedding Chicks website, and was instantly sold on her work -- her photography is really, really good (which is why it shows up on wedding websites all the time!). Kristy is not only incredibly professional, but she's also warm and personable. She likes to get to know her clients, and takes the time to meet up before a single shot is ever taken. She wants to get a sense of the clients' style, their personalities, and what they're looking for. Our wedding package came with a free engagement session. My then-fiancé and I weren't planning on doing an engagement session, but we're glad we did. It gave us an opportunity to get comfortable in front of Kristy and her lens, and we ended up with great photos to use for save-the-date cards and our guest book. The wedding photography itself was spectacular. Our family and guests have all complimented Kristy's keen eye for detail, and for her impressive ability to capture fantastic action shots. Our wedding day went by so fast, and my husband and I are so glad Kristy was there to capture the detail, emotion, and festivity of the day so that we can relive it for years to come.”


“Kristy is an incredibly skilled photographer. Her personality is unique, honest, grounded, and inviting. When my fiancé and I came to Kristy we had a vague concept for our engagement photos: classic, vintage, romantic, and most importantly- travel themed. Through an unpredictable sequence of events, we ended up having a fairly huge set, a small audience, and one goal in mind: epic engagement shots. For some, this kind of shoot could be quite a bit of pressure, but Kristy was right on track and ready to go. We knew what we had was going to be great, but we couldn't have predicted the amazing product Kristy delivered. She's far more than the person behind the lens. Kristy multitasks. While she is able to capture a stunning image, she is also able to make you comfortable in an instant. It's one thing to be in love and show it on the daily, but it’s another to be aware that it's being documented and be unaffected. But with Kristy, our comfort and transparency was never compromised. She allowed natural flow, providing variety with gentle suggestion. Granted she is seasoned in what she does, she has an innate ability and intuition that is rare, and for us, she is a remarkable gift. We couldn't recommend Kristy in any higher regard.”

“Two words to describe Kristy: absolutely phenomenal!  We hired Kristy to take our engagement and wedding photos. She is the most talented photographer I have come across. She has an amazing eye and captures moments, emotions and colors perfectly. She is so easy-going and really made us feel comfortable and natural - which is key to getting great photos. Our images are stunning! Kristy is so dedicated to taking the best photos and it's obvious when working with her.  We are so lucky to have met her and to have her as part of our wedding day. And on top of her amazing talent, she is one of the sweetest people ever!  I highly recommend Kristy. She's the absolute best!”

“We just wanted to say thanks again for the beautiful photos! We really love the way they truly captured our loved-ones' personalities. Everyone looks so happy in the images. You really put everyone at ease. We could not have asked for anything better. We’ll cherish our wedding photographs forever. All in all, you gave us the perfect wedding photography experience, and we are so happy to have made a new friend!”

Audra + Bryant

“We found Kristy on a popular website that we read daily. Her work is published, so you know it must be good! Having been a fan of her work, we knew we wanted to hire her to do our newborn and family photographs. In fact, we hired her early in our pregnancy! Kristy was flexible in her schedule and helpful in recommending other services we were interested in (make-up, etc). When our shoot day arrived, Kristy was a joy to work with. She arrived on time and ready to go. The shoot was natural and didn't feel posed or forced - exactly what we wanted. After reviewing the photos, our expectations were blown away. The images are just beautiful and capture our new family in a journalistic way that I was longing for. I would highly recommend Kristy - we will be working with her in the future as our family grows!”


“Kristy is simply the best. We have been following Kristy's work for the past ten years. We were lucky enough to set a date far enough in the future to ensure her availability. We used her for our engagement photos and were so happy with them! The images are sharp, clear, and vibrant. We had tons of compliments on them. It was great to use her for our engagement photos because it gave us a chance to get comfortable with her taking our photos, though it doesn't take much since Kristy makes you feel comfortable. She made us laugh and get excited about our wedding. Then came the wedding and she was such a huge help on the day of! She made us feel so special and was great at guiding us and getting the best shot. We didn't even hear her camera make a sound during the ceremony once, yet she captured so many beautiful images. Of course we ran behind schedule and she was still able to fit in plenty of pictures of our bridal party & family photos quickly! After the ceremony we barely even noticed she was there! She blended in well and we never felt like she was in the way. The night before at the rehearsal she scouted out spots for photos, shared her opinions and expertise. She's very professional, responds quickly to e-mails, and will work with you on whatever you want; things like locations and including your pet! The wedding images are more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. We really feel that she's one of the best photographers in the entire area. You're very lucky if you get to use her services. We are looking forward to her photographing any future events in our lives.”

“Kristy is truly the best photographer a person could ever dream of. Kristy exceeded every expectation I had. She quickly responded to every email I sent her. She was extremely helpful in answering all the questions I had about the wedding day and I trusted all the feedback she gave me. She was flexible and understanding through the entire planning process. She took time to come to the wedding venue the night before at the rehearsal to get familiar with everybody in the wedding party and family members whom she would be shooting the following day. She scouted the best locations for pictures and made sure everything was set with the venue coordinator. She did all of this in such a natural and comfortable way that I was completely confident about the wedding day. The day of the wedding, she arrived early and was extremely helpful in keeping the time schedule we had planned. She managed all of my family and bridal party in such a professional and easy going way that not only were we able to get all the shots we wanted, but everyone enjoyed every moment of the process. Kristy is fun and makes everyone feel comfortable having his or her picture taken. During the ceremony and after, Kristy fit in so easily to every situation and never interrupted a single moment, although each important moment was captured. I will never be able to do justice in words the beauty of my wedding pictures. I have hundreds of stunning images that capture the love, emotion, fun, and beauty that was present at my wedding. There are so many candid pictures of the most meaningful moments of that day that I will be able to treasure forever. I am eternally grateful for Kristy and all of the photographs I have of my special day.”


"Kristy photographed our wedding and is absolutely wonderful! Her online portfolio illustrates her technical skill and amazing eye for beautiful photos. Her pictures are vibrant, and she deftly captures details and expressions. Equally impressive to me, however, was her patient, kind and cheerful demeanor that immediately put us (and our families!) at ease. Neither my husband nor I are entirely comfortable being the center of attention, and Kristy helped us relax on the big day, while keeping everything running smoothly. She is fantastic and if you're able to book her, count yourself lucky because you are in very good hands!”

“You are amazing! We are so happy with the photos you took. They really show the joy we were experiencing during my pregnancy. Your eye for unconventional beauty gives your images an edge that sets you apart from other photographers. Plus, you were extremely professional but also warm and fun during the shoot.”
