Email Kristine? Expect to get a response back within the hour. Feeling uneasy about being the center of attention and taking a million pictures? Kristine will put you at ease. Want a stellar photographer and create a relationship to last a life time? I mean a lifetime, like maternity pictures, future children birthdays, other big events? Pick Kristine Marie Photography. Kristine photographed my engagement, boudoir, and wedding pictures. The reason I keep going back is because she is just that good. Kristine was always prompt and super professional each and every time. She honestly feels like a friend rather than a "wedding vendor". I seriously can't thank her enough for the guidance and amazing pictures that will last a LIFETIME. Thanks Kristine!!

I am SO happy I chose Kristine to be my photographer for my wedding. After seeing her previous wedding albums and meeting with her, my husband and I were sold. We hired Kristine to do our engagement and wedding photos. After doing our engagement photo shoot I knew she would take amazing wedding photos as well. I was very impressed with how Kristine had great visions for shots and would help us pose. Kristine made the shoot feel very comfortable and helped us feel at ease. Her photos came out beautiful, romantic and just naturally stunning.

Not only is Kristine a fabulous photographer, but she is incredibly organized. I was in constant contact with her before the wedding. She made sure she knew about everything that was going on and made timelines for the photos. I felt completely at ease knowing she was on top of things, there were no surprises.

The day of the wedding went flawlessly. I knew I did not need to worry about what was going on with the photos because she is experienced and she knew what to do. The day of the wedding I got compliments from most of my guests saying how much they liked Kristine. They liked all of her creative shots, dedication, and energy. My family and friends all were so pleased and impressed with the end results of our photos. My wedding photos are breathtaking and will be timeless. To this day when someone mentions my wedding they compliment the gorgeous photos. I am so glad we hired Kristine for our wedding. I would highly recommend her for anyone who wants to work with a professional, talented, and just lovely person.

Kristine is much more than an excellent photographer, she's personable, caring, helpful, detail oriented, thoughtful, energetic....and the list goes on. Being photographed made me so nervous but right away she calmed my nerves with her humor and fun, easy going personality. She made us very comfortable from the start.

When you hire Kristine she almost seems like your wedding planner! She gave us preferred vendors, a mock up timeline of events for the day of, so many tips and tricks to planning a wedding.

We couldn't be happier with how our engagement photos came out and I can't wait to see how our wedding photos end up!
Kristine was the best decision we've made.

Kristen & Phil

We could not have asked for a better wedding photographer. We knew from the moment we met Kristine that she was the photographer for us. It was meant to be just like our marriage.

A few of my friends warned me that their photographers took FOREVER to get their images to them. One of my friends said her's took a whole year! That was one of the things we really loved about Kristine. She was very professional and got us the images on both the engagement pics and wedding in weeks!

She is fast, but the images definitely did not suffer. Our pictures were so amazing. There were so many good ones that we had a really hard time picking which ones to put in our album. We got married at Fairbanks Ranch clubhouse in Rancho Santa Fe, and the images were so amazing that they put us on the cover of the Fairbanks Living Magazine, and did a write up on our wedding, including several of our wedding pictures.

Kristine made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera- even my camera shy husband! She also thought of everything, from timeline, to lighting. We highly recommend Kristine and can’t imagine our wedding memories without her and her images.

Julie & Ronald

Kristine was amazing! I'm not a huge fan of taking pictures and my wife and I were a little nervous about it feeling awkward during our sessions. Kristine made us feel super comfortable from the start. She found some amazing spots for us to take pictures for both our engagement photos and after the ceremony. All the photos were edited and sent to us in a timely fashion and we couldn't have been happier with the results. Kristine has such a great eye for photography and just a natural talent with people. If you can hire her do it now!

Kenna & Thai

Before we found Kristine we contacted several engagement photographers and they are either not as responsive/reliable as we would like, professional or their prices are off the chart. We are so glad to have found Kristine, luckily she managed to meet all of our expectations: she is very professional, very responsive and her work is of quality surprisingly for the price she charges.

We never had our pictures professionally taken before and were pretty nervous how this whole thing works, but Kristine totally put our minds at ease through the whole process from the first phone call to the day we received our final edited photographs. She answered tons of questions via emails in a timely manner and put us at ease with our concerns. She was there for us from the beginning to end. She gives excellent directions on the day of the shoot, she is super quick and knows exactly what she need from us to get that great shot.

Kristine is also very accommodating. We had to change the date on her last minute and she was able to squeeze us in her busy schedule. By the way, we got our beautiful edited photographs way ahead of her turnaround time, how awesome is that! Hire Kristine! You will not regret it!



Ciera & Carlos

She was phenomenal from beginning to end. Our initial consultation was very detailed and I never experienced that with any photographer.


I am so happy with the work you did for our family. My husband and I ended up with horrible wedding pictures and learned our lesson on hiring the best photographer we could find from the on out. We wanted someone who could capture a very special moment in our lives, my husband finally meeting our son after being deployed for 7 months. You did such a great job of capturing this moment for us and these pictures will always be special to us. I loved that you weren’t overly intrusive and let us have our moment together as well as making sure we got some great family shots together. I would hire you over 1000x times and wished I had known about you when I was hiring a wedding photographer.
We hope to use you again in the future!

Staci & Chris

If I had to choose 3 words to describe Kristine's work they would be: professional, artistic, amazing.

After doing extensive research on a maternity photographer we chose Kristine due to her prompt responses to our inquiries, her good package rates and offerings, her great reviews, and how warm and courteous she was in our correspondence.

Leading up to the shoot she gave tips on what to wear, how to prepare, etc. We had a location in mind and she was more than happy to work there. She even suggested an additional location close by for variety.

On the day of the shoot Kristine was prompt and greeted us with a warm smile. She gave us great direction and made us feel extremely comfortable and me very beautiful (which can be hard considering that I was 7- months pregnant at the time). She took the time to get to know us and that really showed in our photos.

Our photos came out more amazing than we could ever imagine. Everyone who sees them is awestruck at Kristine’s artistic genius. She captured the love we have for each other and our unborn child perfectly.

We are so glad that we chose Kristine for our maternity photos and would highly recommend her.


My experience with Kristine was nothing short of amazing. She helped me literally every step of the way- finding a location, outfit, props, posing- seriously, everything. All while making me feel completely relaxed and beautiful. The pictures we got are phenomenal; I can’t recommend Kristine enough! I don’t think I’ll shoot with anyone else here in Yokosuka.

Brianne & Trevor

Kristine made us feel so comfortable taking professional photos. I didn’t feel awkward and she helped me find the perfect poses angles to flatter my growing bump. Thank you for my maternity shoot!! I look forward to many more sessions with Kristine in the future!


Kristine did an amazing job with our family photo shoot! She was encouraging and easy to work with while capturing shots that reflect the spirit of our family. I can't recommend her enough!
