Viking, sword-fighting photographer seeking creative adventurers!
I spent my childhood engrossed in magic, fairy tales, and mythology. The woods held endless fascination as I searched for elves and fairies. Most of my interests involved the art of seeing things that might not be apparent to everyone else. No surprise that I became a painter and photographer.
While the introversion ran strong in this Padawan, I was also the punk rocker, the goth chick, the rockabilly girl or the shieldmaiden. I have always been drawn to individuality and artistic expression, in whatever form that takes. Think of me as your personal camera-wielding Gandalf! I have the talents and wisdom to guide you forth on your wedding day journey and the patience and heart for you to feel safe.
“There are many kinds of joy, but they all lead to one: the joy to be loved.”
– Michael Ende, The Neverending Story.
What is YOUR story?
You’ve found the person you are spending your life with. How will you celebrate your union? Who is integral to that celebration? What traditions or rituals will make the day uniquely yours?
I am eager to hear about your own fairy tale.
How I cater to offbeat weddings
You are here at Offbeat Bride. That alone tells me “we get each other” and you probably are ok with me parking my unicorn in the front yard and sending your wedding album by owl post.
But when all is said and done, there is a very classic and timeless side to my work. Authentic, heartfelt, candid and passionate. The emotions that are uniquely yours. I still see things that might not be readily apparent to everyone else.
I am eager to capture those moments that express what you mean to each other. The stolen glances, the touch on the small of your back that affirms you are not alone. Perhaps that toast elicited a smile that only a select few can understand. Maybe it’s that detail of your fingers entwining in solidarity as you stand before your guests at the altar. Or quite simply, it’s the raucous joy of celebration on the dance floor.
I want to show you what all of these “feels” look like. To create a visual storybook for you to open over the years and relive this day.
And I’ll treat ALL of your guests with the same love, respect and compassion that I will give to you.
“Don’t be fooled by her easy going, bright presence. Kristin is a masterful force for good and beauty” – Nicole
"As a plus-size bride with extreme anxiety, I couldn’t wait to share my love with the world yet I was extremely worried about how I would look in my photos. Choosing and working with Kristin of Photomuse Photography was the best choice I’ve made in a long time. Leading up to our engagement session she had excellent, consistent and transparent conversations with me. She asked for my wants and needs while noting my concerns. Providing comforting assurance that she had strategies to make us look our best, her words gave me the confidence I needed." - Katie and Tony
