Thank you for taking the time to view my work! I have been a lover of the arts my entire life and have had the privilege of being a photographer for the last decade. Whether I am photographing a family or wedding at home in Northern Arizona or some other fabulous location, I always love meeting new people and catching up with old clients that I call friends.

I can't say enough good things about Kristen. She was so professional and went above and beyond to get some great shots. She is truly gifted in her craft. Super fast turn around in getting prints back. More...

Kristen took exceptional photos of our last few events.  She was professional, energetic and listened to our needs.  I have loved looking through the images she captured as they are simply stunning.  I always appreciate when a photographer is willing to go the extra mile to get the right pictures that capture an event.  Thank you so much, Kristen!

I can’t say enough good things about Kristen. She was so professional and went above and beyond to get some great shots. She showed me a few of the shots and I’m blown away. I can’t wait to get my prints back to show them off. I highly recommend!!!!!!! More...

Kristen is AMAZING! A true professional with an eye for capturing the feeling of session in the photographs. Her photos are beautiful and we couldn't be happier with the entire experience! We'll be using her every year!

I have had the pleasure to work with Kristen for several years. She has taken amazing photos of my family and always captures wonderful memories for us. Kristen has also helped me with product shots for my website at work. It has always been so easy to just set up a list of products and she creates the magic behind her camera. Her expertise is priceless and I get excited now for family photos because she is such a joy to work with! More...

I have partnered with Kristen Carnes photography now for several years and for multiple occasions (weddings, family sessions, senior/class photos, and professional head shots). Her photography stands out as exceptional among the many vendors I have had to chose from. She is professional, friendly, and always delivers superior work! More...

Kristen is a talented professional! Although we met through her brother-in-law (also a friend of ours) several years ago, we lived out-of-state and just recently moved back to Phoenix. We were so excited to have Kristen take our photos for the first time, and she perfectly captured the images we were looking for to use on our holiday card. Even with two fussy little ones, she was calm, cool and collected. I can’t recommend her highly enough and look forward to the next time she photographs our family this Fall. More...

Love working with Kristen at Kristen Carnes Photography, she’s been taking photos for myself and friends and family for the past 10 years and I wouldn’t go to anyone else. Kristen is extremely creative and always captures moments I don’t even see. She has an eye for lighting and pays a lot of attention to detail while simultaneously making you feel so comfortable and relaxed. I recommend Kristen for family sessions, weddings and engagements and headshots! More...

So much fun to work with AND delivers on quality and professionalism. I love working with Kristen professionally as a hair and make-up artist, as all of her clients are always happy with their photos and enjoy the time spent with her during their sessions/events. She did my engagement photos as well and I just love them. She's the best! You won't be disappointed. More...

I had a crazy idea to make a puppy calendar for my husband one Christmas and Kristen was all about it. Milo (our puppy) and I had so much fun dressing up and posing for our little photo shoot and the pictures turned out perfect! Kristen was very patient, professional and artistic. We will definitely come to her for our future photo needs! More...
