I'm Kristen, owner of Veils & Tails Photography, and I am a wedding and pet photographer based out of Santa Barbara, California and available for travel to wild and beautiful places. I believe that authenticity and fun inspire the photos we cherish most, and I strive to capture real moments in the prettiest way - wet dogs, big squishy hugs, and belly laughs. With a great love of animals, and a passion for elegant, timeless images, wedding photography with a specialty of including your pets is my true calling and my privilege.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, I would love to hear from you! I can’t wait to see what we can create together.
Kristen is such a lovely person and a wonderful professional. Her photography style is beautiful, colorful, and fun! The wedding packages she offers are an incredible deal and well worth the investment.
We worked with Kristen for our engagement shoot and wedding day. Both experiences were fun and relaxed. I don't consider myself very photogenic and I usually feel awkward in front of the camera. However, Kristen immediately put me and my husband at ease and quickly worked us through comfortable poses and gently coached us. The results were so good! My family and I are so pleased with the photos .
During the wedding Kristen and her assistant were so respectful, professional, and honored everything on my shot list. Some of my family members have mobility restrictions, but Kristen was able to accommodate them and get amazing shots at our outdoor venue. Kristen has such a wonderful eye for framing amazing outdoor photos and was able to capture both the big and small moments of our wedding. It is such a joy to scroll through her easy to use gallery and re-live our special day. Ordering prints through her website is also super easy.
I would highly recommend Kristen of Veils and Tails Photography to capture your special day! She is incredibly trustworthy and a joy to work with.
Let me just start with oh my gosh! Kristen is a light chaser and capturer. Her photographs capture all of the colors and light and for someone who does not care for pictures of herself, I love every one of the photographs in my gallery. She is patient, creative and able to capture even the most challenging subjects. I would highly recommend her and would consider her as a go-to photographer for my fur family.
Looking for a photographer for anything? Look no further. Kristen is absolutely exceptional.
She is professional and approachable, and produced the best photos I’ve ever seen of me, my husband, and my dog. We did two sessions - engagement shoot and veils and tails (bride and dog) shoot - and the wedding day. Two years later, I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
Beyond the exceptional photography she is great with my dog, Joy, and good at giving direction to her subjects. Me and my husband don’t love being photographed, but she made it a pleasant experience.
We treasure the wedding album she put together for us including all three days and look forward to hiring her to take family photos in the future.
Kristen really did an incredible job at our wedding. She is very professional and did a great job communicating with everyone involved. Most importantly, the photos she took were amazing! Went through all the photos before writing this review and almost 6 YEARS later, the day was captured perfectly!
I have used Veils and Tails for several shoots including portraits with my beloved puppy, my engagement photos, and my wedding.
Kristen is extremely professional and comes to each shoot with wonderfully creative ideas that she has produced from my preferences and needs. She delivers the final products in a timely manner and her final photographs always, and I mean always, exceeds my expectations.
That is why I keep coming back! As our family grows, we will be using Veils and Tails for many more shoots in the future so that she can capture life-changing memories with her beautiful photography that we will cherish for decades.
