Kristen Marie Photography

Kristen Marie Photography has been documenting one-of-a-kind weddings since 2010. From intimate beach ceremonies to culturally diverse multi-day celebrations, we are there to capture every detail of your wedding day as it unfolds.

We aren’t just providing a service to couples; we are providing a storytelling lifetime heirloom. We photograph the natural interactions of our couples, but we also make sure to photograph the tiny details and people who mean so much to you! The ultimate goal is to provide tears of joy every time you relive your wedding photos.


What We Offer:

I offer a variety of package options from single shooter packages to second shooter packages. I also offer 4-hour packages to 10-hour packages. All package prices are available to couples directly through my site, so you can see before you contact what pricing I currently offer.

Our Wedding Style Is:

Romantic and bright. I take a stand-back approach. I will pose you in a way it is flattering, but let you interact with each other — smile, laugh, and enjoy the moment with some direction and posing in between. It’s your day and I want you to remember the moment when you look at your images.

Our Personality Is:

I am outgoing and have what I think is a fun personality. I like to keep things light, but also professional. This allows me to be able to relate to the couple and understand what they want, but to control the crowd and get people organized. It lets me keep things moving for the couple as well!

We Love Being a Part of the Wedding Industry Because:

I love shooting weddings because I have one opportunity to capture that moment and capture the joy on the couples faces. This is one of the biggest moments in a couple’s life and one filled with joy. I love capturing the joy of everyone in attendance and most importantly, the couple’s faces. Unlike a portrait session at a wedding, you really see the love between two people.

Our Associations/Awards:

I am a member of Professional Photographers of America and have been published in a number of online publications with additional publication dates already set for this year and next.

Uniqueness. Kristen Marie Photography was the photographer for a friend of mine, and I loved Kristen Marie's pictures. We were looking for non-traditional pictures, and she nailed it!

Navy Blue and White Destination Dunedin Wedding | The Fenway Hotel

We primarily wanted someone who made us feel comfortable being ourselves.

We had a great experience with Kristen Marie Photography shooting our engagement photos and were excited to have Kristen be part of our wedding day. She was highly professional but could still make us laugh, kept our day running on schedule, and even had preview photos ready for us the next day!

Outdoor, Waterfront Bride and Groom Garden Wedding Portrait | Tampa Wedding Photographer Kristen Marie Photography

Romantic Tampa Garden Wedding | Davis Islands Garden Club Wedding

I wanted our wedding photography to be clean, crisp, and clear. I was looking for high quality photography, and I like natural, candid photos. I don’t like super doctored, super edited photos. I didn’t want them to look ‘Instagramed.' I shopped quite extensively for a wedding photographer, and I quickly found out how expensive photography can be and that I had expensive tastes. I wasn’t willing to sacrifice on quality on pictures that last a lifetime, but I didn’t want to break the bank either. Kristen of Kristen Marie Photography had the quality I was looking for, but not super expensive. I thought Kristen was excellent! She was very professional and had a lot of experience, so everything flowed really nicely. I was so happy with the pictures. They truly turned out amazing and all of our friends and family rave about them all the time.

I was definitely looking for someone with wedding experience and most importantly someone organized. I’m not the most organized person and can procrastinate a bit. I did a lot of shopping around and I always came back to Kristen Marie Photography’s pictures. They were beautiful. Kristen’s service was awesome, very organized and communicative. She was super easy to get along with. We communicated a lot via email and text which worked best for me. Kristen’s timeline was spot on, and she answered all my questions, no matter how silly and gave me some really great suggestions.
