Vendor Love: Chris + Kristen Photography

It is so much more than vendor love….its a major crush, mad professional respect and absolute adoration! When we first began daydreaming about who we would like to shoot our new team photos, Chris and Kristen were at the top of our list. We hadn’t yet had the pleasure to meet them, but after stalking their website and portfolio a bit we knew we had to!


When Kristen arrived at the Archive showroom it was love at first sight! We don’t want to be too gushy….but she is the real deal from head to toe;  a genuine beauty with the biggest heart. Kristen made herself right at home amongst our chaos and graciously began shooting throughout the warehouse. Since then we have been fortunate enough to work with Chris and Kristen on several other projects, sneak in a few lunch dates and we foresee more champagne in our near future together! We are so lucky to call them our friends AND one of our favorite photography duos!

If you missed our Vendor Love post on the awesome girls of Design Visage and our sweet Plum Pretty Sugar robes, be sure to catch up on our day of pampering before the big shoot! And a huge THANK YOU to Bridals by Susanti for the beautiful dresses!

Kristen used our one of our Peacock Blue Tufted Walls as a backdrop and wowed us with her ability to make us laugh and feel comfortable in front of the camera! We always knew we had a REALLY good looking staff (we are lucky like that) but seriously….we have a team of models!

After photos at our showroom in San Clemente we headed down the road just a bit to one of our favorite little beach stops to catch the sunset and enjoy some bubbly before heading out to dinner.

Kristen was such a sport, putting up with our craziness and time schedule for the day. She is really fun to watch in action and will do whatever it takes to get the “right” shot!
