Congratulations! You’re getting married!

Are you looking for a fun, relaxing experience with a photographer whose sole job is to capture the best of you and the people you love? You’re in the right place!

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGES

Perfect wedding photos make your day timeless. Fifty years from now, you’ll look back and relive the hope, love, laughter, and joy forever reflected on the faces of your family and closest friends.

Collections 1 & 2 are my most popular packages as they cover most of your wedding day and also include a complimentary engagement session. Engagement photos are a fun way to get to know each other before your wedding day and the session helps couples get comfortable in front of the camera. An engagement photo session also provides an opportunity to review shots or angles you like or don’t like, making sure we capture exactly what you’re looking for. The pics you love make great personalized wedding invitations and can be used as part of your wedding day décor.

I send my photos to you fully edited and print-ready, available in an online gallery that you can easily download from.

Don’t see a package that fits exactly what you’re looking for? That’s OK! I’m happy to customize one to suit your needs and wedding budget.

THE PORTFOLIO

MY PROCESS

1.

lets meet up!

For a fun experience and natural photos, we need to be a good fit. We’ll meet, get to know each other, and discuss your wedding day vision. I can provide image suggestions that celebrate you and your interests, local vendor recommendations, and tips to get the most out of your wedding day photography. I’ll ask a lot of questions because I want to ensure that my photos are precisely what you’re looking for. It’s your day and your experience—both should be incredible!

2.

secure your date.

Not going to lie, Okanagan weddings book up fast! Our picturesque lake, sandy beaches, expansive vineyards, and charming orchards are too good to pass up. Once you know that you’d like to work with me, we’ll need to secure your date. It’s easy! All I require is a 30% deposit, and the fun begins!

3.

quell your jitters.

All my wedding photography packages come with a complimentary engagement session; it’s like a practice run before the real thing! Engagement photography sessions are also a great way to get rid of any nerves you might have about being in front of the camera. My goal is to make you feel entirely yourself and comfortable in your skin. After the session, you’ll have beautiful engagement photos for your wedding website, invitations, or to share with family and friends.

4.

the big day!

The day you’ve been planning and patiently waiting for is finally here! Today is all about you, and my job is to help you enjoy every moment while capturing every detail and the best of you and your loved ones.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a second photographer who works with you during our wedding day?

I do have a second photographer who works with me. Including a second photographer at your wedding depends on what package you choose. It can be a great benefit in times when I cannot be 2 places at once, specially the wedding ceremony. A second eye to make sure all the little moments are captured at your wedding is always a good idea.

How many images do I get back from my wedding day? Are all the images edited? Are they high resolution?

Images you will receive from your wedding day depend on how many hours you would like me there. A full day of capturing usually produces 500-600 images. All images you receive are edited and high resolution.

How far should we book in advance?

Kelowna / Okanagan is a popular wedding destination so dates tend to book up quite quickly. I recommend you book 10-18 months in advance.

How much time should we schedule for photos between the ceremony and reception?

Ideally it is great to have at least 2-3 hours between the wedding ceremony and reception. This gives you time to breathe a little after the ceremony. My goal is to keep you relaxed, enjoying every aspect of the day. Depending on the location we discuss for photos, it is good to keep travel time in mind as well. I can help you with a timeline to maximize your time for photos.

Do you add your watermark to our wedding photos?

No, I will never send your finished photos with my watermark on them. These photos are personalized to you.

WEDDING REVIEWS

Patrik & Marita

won’t regret it!
My husband and I had this wonderful, talented lady capture our wedding this past July. After finding her portfolio online and a few (very helpful) messages back and forth, we decided to meet with Kristine for coffee before we made our final decision. She was so lovely and well-organized at that meeting; we knew immediately that she was our one 🙂
Included in the package we chose was a complimentary engagement shoot, which was a perfect opportunity to experience her personality and style, and to dispel any worries about being in front of the camera all day.
Come the big day, Kristine was everything we needed her to be: she gently commanded our large and somewhat rowdy bridal crew, getting hundreds of photos with her second camera-person at a variety of locations before heading to the ceremony, where you hardly noticed they were there, they blended so well. She got a ton of amazing photos of the day, of our family, of the reception and dancing, and a bunch of candid shots of our guests.
We are so thrilled with how our photos of the day turned out, and would recommend Kristine without hesitation. 100%!

We recently hired Kristine to do our wedding photography and I am so happy we did! Kristine did a great job of making us feel comfortable during all of our photos, even though we are naturally very awkward in pictures. These were by far the best photos we have ever had taken of us and Kristine did such an amazing job capturing the emotion and feeling of the day. We have a dog who was part of our wedding and normally refuses to sit still during pictures or look at a camera but Kristine managed to capture many great shots with her. We decided to do engagement photos as well and I am really happy we did as it helped reduce a lot of the anxiety around pictures the day of the wedding. Overall I would highly recommend Kreative Beginnings to anyone who is looking for beautiful photos that you will want to look back on for years to come!

Josh & Natalya

I recently hired Kristine for my engagement photos at Quails’ Gate Winery. Our experience was amazing! She worked with me to be certain we would capture the perfect moment, while being discrete to ensure we didn’t tip off my to-be fiance. She is great at communicating, easy to work with, and captured some beautiful photos. Could not speak more highly of her service – would highly recommend her business!

Dave & Bella

Choosing your wedding photographer can be very overwhelming. I picked Kristine to do my wedding based on the information I got on Google (her website and online reviews) it just felt right to choose her amongst the gazillions of other options online and recommendations.. and I’m glad I did! I’m more than happy with the over all experience of working with her from the engagement to the wedding. She was very easy and fun to work with and she made us feel comfortable smiling and posing on the camera for hours. The pictures were all beautiful. Wonderful moments captured and I’ll forever treasure! Highly recommended!

Alex & Nevyas

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would! Kristine was such a pleasure to work with during this very exciting milestone of ours! She captured the most beautiful photos during our engagement session and our photos from our wedding…we are going to need a much bigger photo album because they are all so incredible! Not only is Kristine extremely talented, she is such a joy to work with. She is so friendly and has such a warm personality. Even though we are from out of town, we would definitely consider using her again for future milestones.
