BEHIND THE CAMERA
BEHIND THE DESIGN
BEHIND THE SCENES
After getting married in 2011, we set out for one of our biggest adventures. On our 3rd year Anniversary, we took a trip to California. As strangers to most of the midwest, we decided to drive. We loved the idea of traveling all that way to pass through unknown places together. On the road, we visited poets we admired & historic places we had only seen on TV. The entire trip was a very spiritual experience for us: full of emotion & strength. It guided us to soon after open a small photography business in 2015. We have been fortunate enough to work with people near & far for 2 years now. With support from our community, we continue to grow in many ways & understand the significance of looking to a photograph to recall some of the most precious moments in our life together.
My name is Kristine. Welcome to the virtual E11even Photography Studios experience, where our clients ARE our family. I am the website developer & the artist behind the Engagement/Wedding books. I am a very compassionate person & I love meeting new people. My true passion is dance, but I enjoy participating in community theater acting & singing. When I am not performing, I will likely be listening to the hypnotic sounds of Julee Cruise. I am here to assist you in any way possible to create an album both personal & beautiful. Although we work in Upstate New York, our services extend to Massachusetts, Vermont, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, & Maine.
