My name is Kristin, and I am the woman behind the camera at Kristin Hornberger Photography. I am so lucky to be able to photograph weddings and capture all the special details, people and emotions of a wedding day.
I fell in love with photography at a young age and have always had a camera in my hand. With my background as an event consultant at Ritz Charles Event & Conference Facility, I have been an expert in the field of wedding consulting, planning and photography for over 15 years. Having graduated from Purdue University with over six years of drawing, art, and photography classes, I appreciate works of art and see beauty in everything, especially behind the camera lens. Since opening my business, I have had a blast working with all of my couples, friends and families that I have met along the way. I especially love to get to photograph the Engagement and Wedding Photography, because I get to capture some of the most special moments of people's lives!! We laugh, have fun and get to enjoy all the love and happiness that comes along with weddings! The results, hopefully, speak for themselves and are an extension of the bond between the bride, groom and their loved ones.
Not too long ago in May of 2006, I was planning my own wedding and married my husband, Dean. I am so thankful to have found him and have enjoyed every moment. He is a wonderful, thoughtful and amazing man and I look forward to growing old with the man I love. In March 2010, after more than three years of trying, we joyfully welcomed our son, Owen, to our family. He is an adorable red head with a dimpled chin like his father and a laugh with a big set of teeth just like mine. We knew we didn’t want to wait much longer for another child and were blessed with Gracie in July 2011, a baby girl that Dean never wants to grow up! Dean and I love being parents and are so thankful for our two little blessings. We are enjoying our two little munchkins and we couldn't be happier. When I am not working on the photography business, I absolutely love having time to hang out, think about or be on the beach, take walks with the kiddos, cook, go to movies and sit with Dean on our swing outside watching the kids.
I approach photography with a very natural technique, I want the pictures to showcase who someone truly is as a person, a couple and a family. I blend a photo-journalistic style with a little traditional/classic style with an emphasis on composition, lighting, and background. I place subjects together in an interesting environment and encourage them to relax and interact. I give some direction, but want them to be relaxed as well to then smile, be themselves, and enjoy the day with the people they love. I would love to learn more about you - to have fun, to laugh, and to take some awesome pictures along the way. Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little bit about me. Now it's my turn to get to know you! Please leave me a note, call or send me an email and let's chat about you. Enjoy! XXOO, Kristin
