Wedding Photographer Lexington KY | Kristen Ellis


I’m Kristen, and I am a professional wedding photographer serving Lexington Kentucky as well as weddings abroad. I specialize in classic, editorial, and artistic imagery for fun and romantic couples.

My Photography Style

I specialize in elegant imagery that will stand the test of time, and add my own artistic spin to create an editorial aesthetic for modern couples.

Understanding how light works and how to make people look AMAZING by molding and painting with light and shadow has always been at the forefront of my style. Also, I can make you go from looking good to looking drop dead gorgeous with my knowledge of proper posing techniques.

My editing style is classic, crisp, and clean. My colors are true to life, and this is why my photos will stand the test of time. In 10 or 20 years, you won’t look back at dated wedding photos because of current popular filters and presets.¬†

Wedding photography Pricing

Wedding photography pricing varies so much, it gets frustrating going from website to website trying to figure out what you can get from which photographer for your budget. I’ve been there. I. Get. It.

So, my pricing begins at $2850. When you hire me, you hire a knowledgable insured wedding photographer who is passionate about creating beautiful images and is one of the best in photographers in Lexington. Ugh, I know that sounds like I’m boasting, but I’ve invested a lot of time and money to be able to create the way that I do, and I would love to work with you.

When hiring a photographer, you usually begin with the amount of coverage you need for the wedding day. For a more comprehensive look at my wedding pricing, go here.

How I photograph a wedding

I’m not a wall-flower, nor a photojournalistic photographer. I will direct you, I will style the detail shots, and I will help you throughout the day to get the best images possible. Now, does that mean I won’t capture moments as they happen? Of course I will, it’s a wedding. If grandpa decides to break it down on the dance floor, he doesn’t need direction from me, and I’m definitely going to capture it. Mainly because old men dancing are awesome, which may explain why I love Dick Van Dyke so much.

What I mean by direction is this. If you want a first look with dad, I will first move you to the best light, then make sure we have dad come in and walk to you. Everything after that, I will capture it as it happens.

Also, I will direct you during portraits. I have two approaches to portraits, which are editorial and natural. The editorial style is posed to make you look your best and like you belong in a magazine. The natural approach is simply slowing down, giving you some things to say to each other, asking questions to make you laugh, and getting those real laughs and smiles.

I am super enthusiastic when it comes to photography and beautiful portraits. I will jump and smile, laugh, and truly get excited for you. I can’t help it, I just love that I get to do this for a living.

Traditional VS. Modern

From traditional weddings with the garter and bouquet toss, cake, and white dress to modern non-traditional weddings with pie, a black dress, or a first look, I will create amazing images that you and your family will love for generations.

Your children, then their children, will go through your wedding album, display your photographs, and treasure them for lifetimes. Entrust the best wedding photographer in Lexington to create these heirloom photographs for you.

How to book

In order to book your date, you just need to sign a contract and pay the retainer. It’s that easy, but I make it easier by making everything doable online. You can also access your own client portal with important documents. You’re busy planning a wedding, so I made the process simple and easily accessible.

Before you sign the contract though, you probably have questions. Feel free to send me an email or schedule a phone consultation. I’d be honored to photograph your wedding, and I hope to hear from you soon!
