Hi! I am Krista and I am beyond excited that you are here! I started photographing weddings and engagements in 2007 and it has been a blast ever since.  I love bringing laughter and joy to our couples during their weddings.  I graduated from Olentangy in 2005 and The Ohio State University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Space Design.  After graduation, I moved out to the country.  I love the crisp fall evenings, sunsets over fields and so many stars are visible out here in the night sky! My husband, Scott and I live in my Grandparents house that my Grandparents built in the 1940's.  We have a son named Wyatt who was born April 24th, 2016 and an a adorable Border Collie named Bentley!  I love spending time outdoors, trying new foods, hiking, kayaking, spending time with our family.

My husband, Scott joined Pipers Photography in 2013 as my second photographer and business partner.  He graduated form Pickerington High in 2002 and from  the University of Dayton in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science in Finance. He is a numbers guy! He is a lover of cheese, traveling, food adventures, Buffalo Bills, camping, woodworking, and spending time with our family. 

Scott 

Second Photographer

Wyatt was born April 24th 2016 and is a happy,  always moving, and loves watermelon baby.  He is what reminds us to take time out of our schedules to spend some quality Family Time together.  He is always laughing and bringing extra joy to our life! 

Bentley is a 7 year old Border Collie that I got when I was single to have a dog! He is the first dog I have ever owned and is amazing. Scott adopted him after we were married in 2015 and Bentley enjoys having another parent.  Bentley is a lover of all things that involve throwing a ball and playing with toys.  He is really excited that he gets another human to play with that is his size!

Unique Jewelry

I absolutely adore buying unique and jewelry that is one of a kind.  I bought these seaglass earrings in Maui, Hawaii from a handmade shop and I love them so much.  Seaglass always reminds me of the beach!  My palm tree necklace is one of my favorites. I also bought it from a handmade shop in Maui on our honeymoon. I love the fact that it has a little coconut in the tree and is made from Koa wood.

Air Plants

I have a special love for Air Plants.  I am not really sure when I started to love them, but my love for orchids morphed into airplants. I loved them so much that I had them in my wedding bouquet and on our cake.  Scott even had one for his boutonniere! Now I have several that happily hang out on my desk!

Diet Pepsi

I was a Diet Coke girl for 28 years of my life. That's a lot of years! When I was pregnant with Wyatt if I would crave pop then I wanted a Pepsi and so my love for Diet Pepsi was born. Now I can't even imagine not having Diet Pepsi. It is Aspartame free so that makes it a little healthier right? Sure!!

Basil

I LOVE basil. It is such an easy herb to grow and I use it on everything. It is my favorite herb and perfect on pizzas, in lemonade and on tomato with mozzarella!

Crystalline Pottery

One of my friends at OSU introduced me to Crystalline Pottery and the moment I saw it I fell in love.  My second love besides photography is ceramics. I have a pottery wheel and kiln.  I enjoy the process of crystalline pottery with the zinc crystals forming over several hours in the kiln.  My favorite place to buy is Dover Pottery is Seagrove, NC. I buy a pot there every year!

Koa Turtle

This little turtle is a Koa wood turtle from Hawaii. I also enjoy buying locally made art work whenever we travel to a new location. This little guy spoke to me and he now hangs out in Wyatt's Nursery since it is turtle themed!

Candles

I love lighting candles any time of the year.  My favorite scents are always smells that remind me of the ocean and summer time. Super cute candle holders are always a plus!

Fun Pens

I enjoy writing with colored pens because let's face it, when you have to write ideas down it is so much better in color! 

Basin Body Butter

I am obsessed with Basin's Body Butter in Satsuma. It is an orange beach smell and it's so addicting. I found Basin at Disney World of all places and always enjoy buying some body butter when I am in Orlando!

Hawaii

We honeymooned in Maui and O'ahu, Hawaii and it was so amazing. I can't even describe how beautiful or magnificent it was. I really hope we are able to go back soon to enjoy Shave Ice, crystal blue oceans, and salt air sunsets overlooking the islands

OBX seashells

Scott and I were married on Hatteras Island in the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  We had a beachfront ceremony and the reception was at the beach house we rented.  I adore these little clam shells and decorated the tables with them and seaglass!

Reading

When I have spare time I enjoy reading.  I usually am reading while on the beach for vacation, but there are a couple rare moments that I get to read while we are home.  I also decorate our house with fresh flowers whenever I can! This little Gerber Daisy was from a flower bouquet that Scott surprised me with one evening!

Traveling for us is so enjoyable. Our list of excursions is insanly long as we have both traveled so much before meeting, as a couple and as a business.  We love our destnation wedding couples since we had a destination wedding as well! I always love to hear about the vacations and travels that our couples go on!  The honeymoon destinations always sound so amazing! We went to Hawai'i for our honeymoon and fell in love with the state. I would move there in a heartbeat! But... for now... I will just hope we have the opportunity to photograph a destination wedding in Hawaii!
