ABOUT THE STUDIO

Kristen Herber Photography was founded in 2002 and has been providing quality photography to the Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota area ever since. Located in Oakdale, we specialize in weddings and babies but also have extensive experience in general portrait, maternity, boudoir, and senior portrait photography; as well as commercial work for both product and real estate. We currently are operating as a part-time business, only able to accept a select amount of sessions per month, with newborn and wedding as our main focus. Recently, Kristen moved her studio away from downtown St Paul to the comfort of her family's home; ideal for small children, small family, and single-person portraits.

We pride ourselves on providing quality products and being very flexible with requests.

We do travel for destination weddings! Please contact us for more information.

***  Kristen Herber Photography warmly welcomes all diversities; culture, race and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, socioeconomic status, appearance and more. Our experience and technical training allows us to capture all skin tones accurately.

ABOUT ME

Hello! I'm Kristen. Ever since I was young, I have been infatuated with capturing the beauty around me. As a wedding and portrait photographer, my goal is to capture all the emotions and details of your day or milestone so that when you look back at your photos 10…20…50 years from now, you'll instantly be taken back in time. I feel incredibly blessed to be able to have such an amazing job and love spending time getting to know each of my clients personally. In addition to being a professional photographer for over 18 years, I have also taught classes on outdoor wedding portraiture and indoor studio lighting and newborn posing for over a decade. There are very few things that make me as happy as when I'm behind the camera; international experiences, quaint coffee shops, connecting with nature, spending time with my boo, giving back to my community, and kitties!

I welcome all feedback and inquiries about my work.

XOXO, Kristen

I ’ M   K R I S T E N

A PROFESSIONAL WEDDING & NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER LIVING IN THE BEAUTIFUL TWIN CITIES

I find beauty in all styles from simple to over the top. If you like what you see in my portfolio; you’re going to love your photos.  I believe every picture I take and give you should be frame-worthy. I look forward to creating wonderful memories for you!

5 Reasons to Hire Me!

1. Passion- Photography is not a full time job for me. I don’t do it because I have to. I’m a photographer because I love the art of it, and I love the challenge of composing and making a beautiful photograph. Every client is a new opportunity for me to paint a new and beautiful picture of their story. All of these stories are what keeps my passion alive.

2. Skill- I have a formal education in photography, lots of continued education over the years, and over 18 years of experience photographing weddings and portraits. I know what stands the test of time. I know how to improvise when lighting conditions are difficult. I know how to see a space and find creative perspectives. I know my equipment well, so I am able to react quickly.

3. Delivery of Best Images-  I want to give my clients the best images! I’m picky when it comes to delivering a good image.  I’m always after the photo that is stunning, so let’s do it!

4. Consistency- The images I deliver are very true to how a scene looks when the photograph is taken. In other words, I don’t do a lot of editing where colors are unnatural, or where the image is high contrast or highly processed. The images from your wedding day or session will be consistent in color, editing, and in look and feel. I feel this will make your collection of images timeless. In years down the road, they will still be classic, and not feel trendy or over-processed.

5. I am Calm & Kind- I have been told that my presence at a wedding is calming.  I care about people and I want to help make experiences the best they can be!  I am able to adapt to different situations easily, I am very low maintenance, and I listen to my clients. I have one goal, and that is give you a collection of images that shows how amazing your wedding day was.  I will do anything to help make this day go well for you so I can achieve this. My clients with newborns and children have stated that I have endless patience for their little ones.
