Hi there! I'm Kristen Camielle! I'm a fine art wedding photographer located in heart of the Blue Ridge & central Virginia! I have a passion for creating art that makes your heart swoon & flutter! I picked up my first camera years ago and knew there was something magical about what can be captured throughout life’s unforgettable moments. My images have been described as romantic, whimsical, and timeless. I love capturing the real, authentic moments while still adding a little touch of fairytale bliss! As much as you'll find me photographing, my other hobbies consist of traveling, hiking, snowboarding, and just adventuring through this wild life with my husband and pup!
If you were to ask me my favorite place that I've traveled to, I'd probably take a full day to answer. Throughout my lifetime I have been so fortunate to see just how small I am in this giant world filled with breathtaking views and wildly inspiring people. Currently, my favorite getaway is Ireland, but Scotland is up next year and I think I'm doomed haha! I'm always looking for new adventures across the globe and across the US! Seeing the world, experiencing new cultures, and making connections is how I thrive! Next up is France, Switzerland, and Belgium! If you're planning a destination wedding, elopement or session, I'm passport ready! I would absolutely love to chat with you about your destination vision; and I'd love even more to be your photographer!
where we've been
I figured I should introduce my other half on here! This is my husband, Josh. We met and started dating when I was still in high school, BUT fun fact: I
had a crazy crush on him when I was 13 years old hahaha, SO lucky he didn't meet 13 year old Kristen (and so are you! ;)) In all seriousness though -- Where I'd be without him, I have no clue! We've been married for almost five years now, and we are always ready to conquer what life throws at us. From moving states together, growing up together, and experiencing life together -- this man has awaken a new love in me for this craft. I knew I loved photography and all that it holds dear to begin with, but creating our life together has manifested within me a new passion for delivering timeless & life long art for couples across the world!
MY Heart, MY love
Photographing your love story is what I was made for. There's just something magical about a wedding that I can't help but swoon over. I pride myself in taking beautiful & timeless images for you to remember your special day; the moments and looks that you'll want to cherish forever. The ones that you'll frame in your home for years to come. The ones that 20 years from now you look back at and are immediately transported back to your wedding day. But most importantly, I don't just want to be another vendor -- I want to be your friend, your confidant, your number one hype girl, and someone to rely on during the busy hustle and bustle of your wedding day. I value connections and relationships above all else! I value you and your vision!

Kristen was by far one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! She made my husband and I feel so comfortable both during our engagement shoot and in the wedding day pictures and fit in so naturally throughout the wedding day to capture genuine emotions of each moment. We LOVED all of our pictures from her - she perfectly captured the scenery, ambiance, emotions, small details, and our favorite moments with each other and our families/friends! Although we had a wedding coordinator, she primarily ran the timeline running up to the wedding ceremony and kept things under control and running smoothly. We could not be happier with her and absolutely recommend her to any couple!! - Greta & Tyler

I could not wait to write this review for Kristen as she helped make our wedding day this August an absolute dream. Wedding planning during this pandemic has been anything but easy, it felt like one thing after the other, but the constant was Kristen being amazing, supportive, and incredible. After making the decision to postpone our wedding, the first vendor I called was Kristen because I wanted her and her photography skills there. On the wedding day, I felt like I wasn't working with a vendor but, rather, a close friend that happened to be taking pictures. Kristen was the perfect compliment to the day, encouraging us to have fun in our photos and keeping us on the timeline she helped curate with our coordinator. And when we got our pictures back, we were absolutely blown away. How she could capture such emotion, such special details, and such precious memories is beyond me, but we are so happy with the results. The photos Kristen took will be cherished for the rest of our lives. They'll be hung up on every wall in our house, be our profile pictures forever, and will be every gift we give our family members for the next few years. We cannot say enough good things about Kristen (clearly). We only wish we could get married again so she could capture that day too.
