My name is Krysten Leighty and most days you'll find me behind my computer with a latte, laughing at funny videos of babies & puppies being cute.  I am a wedding, portrait and lifestyle photographer who is inspired by nature and the ever changing sun.  I aspire to travel and always have a bag ready and waiting for our next big adventure to a far off land.  I love being a puppy mom to an 85 lb mutt who follows me around wherever I go and a wife to a man I am so proud to call my husband & best friend.

My Photography Style? It's authentic and timeless with a splash of colorful adventure and a whole lot of love.  I want to give you the chance to look back on this season of life and relive a time you felt the best and most real sentiments of happiness, laughter and love.  Being real in front of a camera can be intimidating but I hope to give you a safe and comfortable space to be yourselves.  Perhaps, dare I say fall in love all over again?

"The core of man’s spirit comes from new experiences; The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun."  - Jon Krakauer, Into The Wild
