Hey there, I'm Krystin and as you have probably guessed the KG of KG Studios are my initials. I went through several name variations before coming up with KG since my last name is tough to pronounce and spell (Gimmestad). Welcome to my studio, I'm Krystin Gimmestad. I've been happily married for 13 years and have 2 adorable little girls along with a house full of pets - 3 cats and a Labradoodle :)
I am originally from a super small town called Entiat (yes it really exists and is halfway between Wenatchee and Chelan), population under 1,000 on the eastern side of Washington state. When I say super small I really mean it, there were only 25 people in my graduating class and 4 of those were my cousins. A trip to town was at least 30 minutes and took some thought when planning to go see a movie. After meeting my husband I moved over the the western side of Washington state and absolutely love Bonney Lake, my new hometown.
You may be wondering why I chose senior and wedding photography, they seem very different and that is very true. I love shooting senior portraits because you can feel the excitement of the seniors about starting the next phase of their lives. I adore weddings because I am a sucker for a happy ending and every wedding is magical, no matter the size or location.
I love serving the world by capturing memories that remind people of the special moments and emotions in life that they can keep and share for generations. Some of the things I am most passionate about in life are being a mom, reading, mac and cheese and just being myself.
Most days you can find me playing with my girls and reading a good book to them or for myself. People often refer to me as a relaxed, go with the flow person. I am mostly known for being honest and straightforward.
I love to work with people who are totally into photos that reflect them and the adventures of their lives. I am lucky to give them the gift of shareable memories. When I'm not busy working on a photo shoot you can catch me working in my garden, swimming in my pool with my girls, playing fetch with my dog or just spending time with my wonderful husband.
If you're dying to hear more, here are some fun facts about me :)
I am a writer of supernatural mystery books and the characters are sort of like Nancy Drew or the Hardy Boys but involves the paranormal.
I love to drive Abby, my Subaru WRX. There is just something about being able to drive fast around corners while listening to the boxer engine purr.
I have a knack for getting other enthusiastic (as much as possible) about learning math.
I love a good challenge, especially when it comes to photos or art projects.
