Kristen Hardesty

Owner and Lead Photographer

Hello! I’m so excited that you’re here! Photography is my favorite thing in the world so I’m really glad that you have landed on this page and are considering letting me show you how much I love it! I have been a photographer for 8 years and earned my Bachelor of Science in Photography from Kent State University during that time. A lot of people ask my why I chose photography and my answer is always the same; I just knew. When I was in high school I had a passion for photography and once I realized it was something that I could make a career out of then the rest was history! It’s always been obvious to me that this is what I was meant to be doing. 

So how do I stay driven and passionate about photography? YOU 

I love capturing moments of you and the most important people in your life. Being there and helping you remember these beautiful moments for the rest of your life is the coolest thing about my job. The photos of my wedding are some of the most important things I have and I look at them ALL THE TIME! The second best thing about my job is getting to be there be by your side on one of the most important days of your life to be your photographer, your friend, your bonus bridesmaid, your emergency seamstress/ professional bustler, the only one in the room that knows how to pin on those silly boutonnieres, whatever it is you need me to be. 

Doesn’t all of that sound awesome? I have the best job! I got excited just writing this! 

Some things I enjoy besides photography are camping, hiking, my two pups, spending time with my husband, crafting, watching shows like Parks and Rec, The Office, Breaking Bad and most importantly Dancing with the Stars (my guilty pleasure). I also love the Marvel Universe, Star Wars and Harry Potter! If any of these resonates with you let me know because I would love to chat about them!
