Couples work with Kristy and her team because they are looking for an unobtrusive yet artistic approach to documenting their wedding. We will happily take the table or group shots your mother wants because whoever is important to your family is important to us. (We just want to get you back on the dance floor ASAP!)

With meticulous planning, we can make the experience of formal portraits as effortless as possible. Just in case you get a blemish or a hair falls out of place, don’t fret. We can perfect your images on request, but love finding the real and imperfect moments that are unique to your day.

Your story will be preserved digitally and optionally in archival albums and prints with guidance from the artist herself. Our top priority is making sure you enjoy your day and can relive those moments for decades to come.

Available for commissions around New York City and destinations.


For over a decade, Kristy May has devoted herself to artfully preserving the visual legacy of marrying couples and their families. She began her career documenting the culture of her native South Louisiana through the lens of a photojournalist. In 2004, she traveled to Germany as a Fulbright Scholar and photographed politics in Berlin for the Associated Press.

Fate (and hurricane Katrina) then brought her to New York City to assist Ira Block, a National Geographic photographer. She earned a masters in digital photography from The School of Visual Arts and began freelancing for local and national publications. She has spent the last 15 years documenting Brooklyn Changing, which garnered press coverage from Architectural Digest to The Today Show.

Kristy lives in a 100-year-old home she enjoys updating just outside of NYC with her husband, daughter and ginger rescue cat, Prince Harry.
