I’m excited to share my newly designed website and blog!  I have gone “back to my roots” as a film photographer, and I’m happy to now offer both film and digital photography.  When I first started my business in 2002, I solely shot film and slowly merged to digital.  After missing film, I’m happy that I’m able to work with both mediums.  We have a great year ahead with events and projects, so stay tuned here to keep up with the latest from Kristen Beinke Photography.

After a fantastic engagement session, I had the honor of photographing Chris and Gabby’s wedding at the Bacara.  The details of this wedding were absolutely amazing, thanks to Gabby and her wonderful team of vendors.  Gabby designed the wedding and most of the decor herself!  WOW – can you say talented?  With the help of Sophie Spier of Amazing Day Events, the event went off without a hitch!  Thanks Gabby and Chris, it was so wonderful to work with you!


Gabby’s makeup was done by Christine Nyugen and her hair was done by Ann at 19 Blue Salon.

The setting at the Bacara on the Miro Lawn could not have been prettier!

Jennifer from Prim and Pixi was the creator of all things paper for this wedding.

Camilla Svenson Burns did an amazing job on the flowers!!


I am in L-O-V-E with dogs.  If you know me personally, you probably know that.  Luckily, my sister Jenn has a dog product company called Kiss My Mutt and I photograph all of her dog models.  A few days ago, we had a very special model visit us all the way from San Francisco.  Lucy was proudly adopted by design blogger extraordinaire, Victoria Smith.  I am sure you have all visited Victoria’s blog sfgirlbybay, but if you haven’t… you must!  She is a very talented designer and photographer.  I had such a wonderful day spending time with Lucy and Victoria!  Check out a few of the images from our shoot….

Thank you Victoria and Lucy!
