This engagement session was a special one for me… my sister Jenn and her fiance Steve are getting married, and I couldn’t be happier for them!  I had the honor of photographing their engagement session recently and we had such a great time!  Jenn and Steve met in high school (can you believe it!) and they’re perfect for each other.  I can’t wait for their big day!

Samantha and Rob were such a fun couple to work with and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in September 2015!  They met in Santa Barbara…. he is from Australia and she is from Santa Ynez.  They’re incorporating eucalyptus trees into their decor on their wedding day because the trees are abundant in California and Australia …… so, it was only fitting that we did our engagement session “under the gum trees” as they say in Australia.  kristenbeinke.com_0036 kristenbeinke.com_0037 kristenbeinke.com_0034 kristenbeinke.com_0038

I’m excited to share my newly designed website and blog!  I have gone “back to my roots” as a film photographer, and I’m happy to now offer both film and digital photography.  When I first started my business in 2002, I solely shot film and slowly merged to digital.  After missing film, I’m happy that I’m able to work with both mediums.  We have a great year ahead with events and projects, so stay tuned here to keep up with the latest from Kristen Beinke Photography.
