If you’re looking for a photographer for your upcoming wedding, look no further than Krista Lee Photography. We had the privilege of getting to ask Krista a few questions about her business and who she is! Keep reading to learn more about Krista and what she does!
Q: What does a typical wedding day look like for you?
I take photographing weddings really seriously and always want to be on my “A” game, so I usually have a chill and early night beforehand to make sure I’m well rested. The morning of, I spend sipping some tea or coffee and reading over all of my notes for the day. I also like to sit and write everything out (even though I have it typed up!) to help commit everything to memory better. Lastly, I sketch out some inspiration poses and ideas that I have for the day. Then I grab a small meal and head to the location early, to make sure I don’t get caught in traffic.
Q: How long have you been in business?
Gosh… 16 years now! People always told me I’d never make it full time doing photography, because they didn’t believe anything in the “arts” could actually support a full time living. But, once I decided to do it as a side business, it grew like crazy! Within a year of starting, I was photographing celebrities and covers of magazines. I quit my “real” job and have been doing photography ever since.
Q: What is your favorite part of a wedding day/event day?
I think my favorite part is the bride and groom portraits. So many of my clients are not pro models, so usually they are nervous. By the time we get started though, they usually say “oh my gosh this is so easy!” and that makes my day. I love capturing people in a beautiful way that flatters them, while having fun and making them feel at ease. Getting to know everyone’s family is something else I really enjoy. I grew up in a huge family and in the last 5 years or so we’ve lost a lot of family members to cancer, old age, etc. I really love helping make some interactions happen with moms/dads/grandma’s/etc that my bride and grooms will treasure forever.
Q: What would be your dream event to photograph?
I am a visual person, so I always droll over the over-the-top celebrity weddings. I’ve photographed some really amazing weddings already, but I’d love to photograph more of the high end, over the top events in the future.
Q: Why did you decide to start a business?
I tried to have several “real jobs” straight out of college, and they didn’t suit me well. I couldn’t stand sitting in an office cubicle all day, and thought maybe I could create something better. It was a big risk at first, and pretty nerve wracking, but I managed to pull it off!
Q: Who would be your dream celebrity or your dream location to photograph?
Gisele Bundchen & Tom Brady!! And dream location… I adore old world type places. Italy, Greece, castles in England, etc. They are on my bucket list.
Q: If you could go anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?
Italy and France! Or maybe Greece too. Heck, lets just say all of Europe if we’re dreaming. I am going to Paris next summer to do a photography project and I cannot wait!
