“Well where do I start?!
From emails, phone calls and texts (all done long distance), Kristin captured every detail and special moment of our wedding. She went above and beyond to make sure we were on the same page, was very organized, kept in contact and is the sweetest lady ever! I feel as though we had been friends for a long time and were just picking up from where we left off. Kristin is incredibly thorough, kind, and knows what she is doing! When you are searching for a photographer and are trying to look for a deciding factor- Kristin has it. She not only takes incredibly beautiful and romantic photos and she can style a shoot like nobody’s business. Paying attention to detail, capturing simple beauty, traveling from Virginia to New York, never complaining and always checking in to make sure I hadn’t gone crazy in the midst of planning, and being able to deal a wonderful vendor are just a few of the perks of working with Kristin Partin Photography.
So no need to think twice about hiring this dear lady- just do it and you will not be disappointed!
Thank you my dear Kristin for your time and gorgeous work.”

“I first contacted kristin about 2 years ago to do my engagement photos. I remember searching and searching for a photographer for weeks! I couldn’t find anything that I liked, everyone had the same pictures over and over again, the lighting was “meh” and the subjects were.. ya know boring.
Then I saw Kristin! AMAZING! I instantly fell in love with her style of photography. Her photos are beautiful and she captures moments that I think many other photographers don’t see. Her details in her lighting and subject matter never fail to impress me..even when the situations are not ideal she always makes everything flow beautifully. I also had the pleasure of working with her after my engagement shoot on three separate occasions. One for her personal portfolio which was a total blast, and may I add beautiful, my boudoir, sexy, classic and elegant, and of course my wedding day. My wedding day did not have the most ideal situations with transportation, and a few other unfortunate timing details. However, Kristin remained professional, sweet, and worked her butt off! she even helped with transportation! Which was above and beyond! The end result was fantastic as always! I never had any problems working with Kristin. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Not only is she an amazing photographer, but she is an outstanding woman. She upholds herself with grace, a high standard of professionalism, and a creative whimsey that is hard to find.”

“Kristin was very professional both during our engagement photo session as well as during the wedding. My groomsmen could be rowdy at times and she did a great job of reigning them in and making sure that they focused on taking photos so that they could have a great time afterwards and my bride and I would have great photos to look back on and have great memories. I definitely like all of the little detail photos that she took to help us remember how great everything looked -especially considering all of the planning and preparation that my wife [and me at points??] put into our special day.
some plus items to think about…
-provided digital photos for us to use at our discretion
-gave great direction but was open to things we wanted to try too
Thank you Kristin! If you have any good sense, you’ll hire her as your wedding photographer!”

“Kristin was so much more than I could have ever hoped for in a photographer. She far exceeded every expectation I had for a wedding photographer. I am pretty picky with photos and spent months searching for a wedding photographer. When I found Kristin’s site, I was blown away by her photos. She is so incredibly talented. Then I contacted her and immediately I felt like I was talking to a friend. I was not able to meet with her before the wedding because I lived on the west coast. She was so incredibly flexible and really gave me one less thing to worry about. She always puts her clients first and I really felt like a priority to her.
She is just really a fantastic, sweet, wonderful person and an insanely talented photographer. Hands down best decision I made for the wedding, aside from picking the groomwas hiring Kristin!”

“Kristin is such a gifted photographer. Her eye for detail and composition is incredible; our photos are simply beautiful. If you love natural beauty — from light, trees, fields, flowers, water, backyards, etc. — Kristen is the photographer for you. She was a breeze to work with and very patient, kind, and accommodating throughout our whole process. We are still trying to select our favorite pictures to frame and hang in our home and are having a difficult time because there are COUNTLESS amazing shots that we would be fortunate to hang as true ‘art’ on our walls. I would hire Kristin again in a heart beat and have, and will continue to, recommended her to all my friends who are getting married. Yay photos for a lifetime of memories!”

“Kristin was so easy to work with from our first email exchange to our wedding day. Our engagement photos are a perfect reflection of Steven and I- no forced poses or cheesy smiles all thanks to Kristin’s brilliant instruction. She even traveled four hours so we could have photos taken in some of our favorite places.
We used Kristin’s timeline on our wedding day- she kept us on schedule and also managed to capture all the special moments and details that were uniquely us. Everything happened so fast it seemed like one happy blur afterwards, making Kristin’s photos priceless reminders we will be able to look back on for years to come.
My only complaint would be having too many gorgeous photos to narrow down favorites for our gallery wall! :)”

“Best photographer in VA! Let me start off by saying that when it came to photography for my wedding, I was the pickiest person possible. It was my top priority because I knew the mood I wanted for my special day, and I wanted all the details/decorations my mom and I worked for so long on- to matter. All the photographers I looked at had beautiful images but none of them stood out. Then I came across Kristin Partins site. The first thing I thought when I saw her images was that they looked like paintings. There was so much depth, beauty, softness and a sense of fantasy in them. I’m so glad we chose her for our wedding. My confidence in our choice only grew when we did our engagement session with Kristin, each photo was thought out with great composition. I’ve gotten so many compliments on them! Then for the wedding she was great with my family, especially my 5 year old nephew who can be a handful and our grandparents who don’t move quite as fast. She kept everyone calm and my wedding party had a great time taking direction from her, especially for some silly portraits. If you want unique and romantic photographs, if you want a photographer who will be organized the day of the wedding, who cares about the details and who will get your photos to you quickly- use Kristin Partin Photography!”

“Of course with Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook, there are tons of beautiful pictures and a bride thinks “Wow, I hope my photos will be that amazing!” Well Kristin did that for us! Kristin went well above our expectations! She captured every magical moment. Looking back on our images, we are able to relive every detail. Her assistant Kelly was just as amazing! I loved the fact that Kristin has her because she can’t be in more than one place and nothing was missed. They both captured the essence of our dream wedding and for that I am forever grateful!!”

“Kristin Partin is simply divine. She truly loves what she does and it shows through her work 100%. She met and exceeded all of my expectations on my wedding day and I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. I received my pictures right when she said I would and they turned out perfectly. Her pictures are timeless, romantic, personal, quirky, sexy, and elegant. She always puts her clients first and does her best to make sure that your wedding day goes smoothly. I will never use another photographer, and I suggest you do the same. You WILL NOT regret it!”

“I couldn’t imagine choosing any other photographer to capture our special day!! Kristin was very knowledgeable and helpful prior to the wedding, answering any questions I had. She is very organized, and one of the sweetest people you will ever meet! She really got to know us and our personalities. On the wedding day, she was very thorough and paid close attention to all the details, she didn’t miss anything. She was so helpful and made sure everything was so special. Her work is absolutely stunning and I in love with my wedding photos. I would definitely recommend her to other couples!”
