Learn more about our ads. Adventurous couples, romantic couples, weird and wild couples, and everyone in between: this fantasy-loving wedding photographer hailing from the Hudson Valley in New York will translate your unique wedding story into the narrative you want to remember. Kristin Reimer from Photomuse is one of our favorite photographers because she's skilled as hell, LOVES offbeat couples (you'll see!), and is such a whiz at capturing the details of a wedding that perfectly encapsulate who you are. Oh, and she's just super rad all around. Bonus! Let's get to know Kristin better and see why she might just be the ideal photographer to capture your wedding (and maybe something else, too)… Why Photomuse is different Kristin at Photomuse IS different than your usual wedding photographer and that's a really good thing. She's spent a lifetime seeing and appreciating things that are not always apparent to everyone else. Stolen moments, real emotions, all of those details you painstakingly crafted… she's appreciating it because she gets it. And she'll deliver it to you in a storytelling form that you'll have forever. So it makes sense to choose wisely in the case of your wedding photos. That's Kristin in her viking form! Kristin is a visual artist and photographer with over 15 years of wedding and portrait photography experience. She's won awards and is a member of a bunch of professional guilds, and has even been featured in professional photography books. So you know she's a serious pro with the chops to back it up. But the other side of Kristin is even more intriguing. She studies and practices German Longsword (HEMA – Historical European Martial Arts). I'm willing to bet that she might be the only Viking sword-fighting wedding photographer you’ll ever meet! What does this mean for you? Someone in charge of capturing all the details you love who also totally loves fun, different, nerdy, fantasy elements, and whatever makes you tick. She's so not going to judge your geeky centerpieces and sorting hat ceremony. And for a geek like myself? You'll be hearing a sigh of relief. Photomuse is also featured in our Offbeat Vendors guide! Oh, and that also opens up some very interesting opportunities outside of weddings. Since Kristin focuses part of her energies on capturing fantasy scenes in her photography ("fantasy transformation sessions") that can include hair and makeup, costuming, and more. You could have a seriously fun engagement session, pre-party, or bachelor/ette party where you end up with AMAZING photos to use in your save-the-dates, wedding website, on your wall, or as your epic new profile shot. The best review ever? We saw this review of Photomuse from a happy client and it might just be the best take ever… “Don’t be fooled by her easy going, bright presence. Kristin is a masterful force for good and beauty.” – Nicole Hell yes — now that is a winning way to be seen. And on that note, it's probably time to see if Kristin has your wedding date free so you too can be blown away by her talent, her rad personality, and her awesome geekiness.

NEXT A whimsical brunch elopement in Brooklyn covered in florals Show/Hide comments [ 3 ] Kristin is amazing! Her artistic vision and love of the whimsical shine through every photo. Her commitment to the goal and her perpetual brightness make her a wonderful photographer to work with. Kristin will go above and beyond to get that perfect shot, and laugh while doing it. Anyone who wants those special photos that showcase them in a unique and fantastical light should hire Photomuse. There will be no regrets. Reply I have had the privilege of being photographed by Photomuse as a bride, during a maternity shoot, and during a fantasy transformation session. All of my experiences were amazing and will remain forever highlights in my life. Kristin has a way of taking you well outside of your comfort zone with ease (whether as a bride, a mom, or in a fantasy session) to capture a magic and glow you never knew you had. One minute with her and you know you're with a true artist (who is also a total badass)! Reply Kristin is an amazing soul. I was blessed to be introduced to her and year ago and now if Kristin isn’t a part of it, it doesn’t seem real. I have been lucky enough to do engagement, boudoir, wedding, maternity, newborn and a fantasy shoot with her, and I can’t wait to continue! She is always a part of the family, kind hearted and badass! She is one of the most talented artists I’ve ever met. I greatly dislike being in pictures, however she always makes us feel at ease, beautiful, strong and inspired. My daughter is always enamorred and loves Kristin. She is a true gem in heart mind and soul, and makes the world an intriguing beautiful place. Reply Join the conversation Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
