Hi!  I’m Sara Kristen, a lifestyle photographer based in Chattanooga TN.
I grew up with a love for creating things, from drawing to writing my own music.  I’m a veteran yearbook staffer (in high school AND college). I guess I’ve got a thing for helping people remember fun (or awkward) stages in life!   I attended Lee University, majored in Communications, and took every photography course offered.  I love 
Building relationships, good quality conversations, and coffee shared with people I love.  Weddings inspire me, and photography is the perfect combination of creativity and relationship I love so much.  And it’s hands-down my passion for life.

Before taking any photos, I like to get to know you.  Coffee dates are my favorite, especially talking with brides about their wedding day.  I love the excitement of planning a wedding, the anticipation and joy.  I love sunny, natural & relaxed looking photos. Most importantly though, I love making photos that show who YOU really are, photos that show YOUR personality.  I like to capture emotions, candids, laughter & tears, details, and all the moments that you will want to remember.  I take photos in between taking photos – – to get those great shots when people are just being themselves.

I like to have fun during photo-shoots.  I’m always trying different things and doing whatever it takes to get a good shot.  I’ve been known to climb rocks, wade in rivers, brave oncoming traffic, even stand out in the rain to get the best shot!  I don’t do cookie cutter photography or traditional studio portraits.  I have a thorough knowledge of poses and angles that look best, but I also work to get those candid shots that look very natural as well.  I give directions where needed but during a shoot I do my best to also let you be free to be yourself! If you want to know more, I’m really friendly. Just shoot me a message,  I’d love to hear from you!
