Krista Welch is a photographer based in the Pacific Northwest, specializing in weddings, documentary-style family portraits, and working one-on-one with entrepreneurs and creative professionals in need of headshots and personal branding imagery.
After graduating from Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design, I worked in the corporate architecture world for several years before returning to school to study photography at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Missoula, Montana. I can't imagine my life otherwise. I've never looked back, and am convinced I have one of the best jobs of all time, right up there next to Professional Puppy Snuggler (is that a thing?) and Professional Chocolate Tester.
I founded my wedding photography business, formerly Love Song Photo, in 2010 and have since joyfully photographed well over 100 weddings of many sizes and styles. Taking on a limited number of weddings each year allows me to expand to other types of photography-related interests; I've even worked as an on-screen workshop host at a Seattle-based startup called CreativeLIVE, geeking out over camera gear and interviewing some of the photography world's leading educators.
I continue to be amazed at the places photography has taken me. In 2014 I traveled to India, where I co-founded a US-based nonprofit called c'mon team!, a collective of 200+ creatives from around the world who desire to make the world a better place by working together. Together, we've organized several volunteer events for creative professionals who are dedicated to serving nonprofits.
I'm lucky to work with people in big transitions like marriage, support other entrepreneurs, creatives, and small business owners. Community is everything.
