Seattle-area couples: we have met your wedding photographer match. As soon as we connected with Seattle-based wedding photographer Krista Welch, we were totally drawn in to her super friendly demeanor, infectious charm, and of course, her STELLAR portfolio. She's got chops, y'all. I know one huge factor for me when it comes to finding a wedding photographer is finding someone who sees the significance of the event for you while also keeping it totally real and down-to-Earth. Krista manages to blend into the day, highlight the most important details on which you worked so hard, and be totally chill and ready to squee along with you once you see the final results. Let's meet Krista, see what she's all about, and why she'll deliver guh-mazing photos of your wedding day… Who is this photo guru? This is Krista: look how adorable! Krista is involved in the arts in tons of ways and brings that to her creative take on your photos. Since 2010, she has photographed an eclectic collection of 100+ weddings, from simple and sweet to elaborate and epic. That's why she's ideal for offbeat couples: she's seen it all and can roll with ALL of your ideas. But let's hear from Krista herself on her style and methodology: I am a firm believer that a person's wedding doesn't need a zillion fancy details or a mountaintop in order to be awesome. The wedding industry may lead us you to believe that a great wedding is all about details and fanciness, but that's not how I see it. The pretty stuff is only the icing on the cake of the deeper emotional story of your wedding day. I love the quirky, the delightful, the silly; and I don't take myself too seriously! When I shoot, I think about more than just taking a pretty picture. I think about everyone who has ever loved you: your children, future grandchildren, your best friends, and anyone who holds you dear. I shoot knowing that these photos will likely be representative of your legacy of love long after you're gone. And how images can be a reminder for everyone who loved you and how you were a part of their story, too. I focus on small/intimate/courthouse weddings and am a big cheerleader for my couples when they decide to throw tradition to the wind and do things their way. If there's anything you want when planning a wedding, it's a cheerleader — someone on your team rooting for you to win. And that just gives Krista all the more awesomeness to capture in photographs. Where's the proof?! Oh we've got your proof right here. Check out Krista's AMAZING portfolio of weddings and (my favorite) small weddings portfolio. Krista loves an intimate wedding!
