WEDDING + ELOPEMENT + PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
Based in Ohio + Available Internationally
I am the owner and lead photographer for Beck Photo Co. For the past fifteen years I have been documenting weddings, elopements, portraits (and more). I live in Cleveland, Ohio, but travel all over to capture beautiful photographs (zero travel fees for weddings!). I love, love, LOVE what I do. Truly. Photography has been my passion since I was single digits (and yes, I have 35mm film albums to prove it). Beyond offering beautiful and timeless photographs, I pride myself on going above and beyond for everyone I work with.
Just a small town girl.

Kelsey + Eric
"Essentially a stranger in a group of family and friends, and all of the guests had commented, ‘Is Kristen a good friend? She fit in so well. She’s such a great add to the day!’ I never thought about how important a photographer’s personality and vibe would be for our day, and this intangible quality is something you can’t put a price tag on. If you are hesitating to book Kristen, don’t. She made a perfect day even better, and captured our day better than my own memories."
"Kristen's presence at our intimate wedding of 25 people was so powerful."
ALex + Derek
"Kristen is the best. Not only is she extremely talented, but she also managed to be easy-going while at the same time she was able to direct us and corral our family. She made me feel natural in front of a camera, which can be challenging. She was accommodating and kind and also just really fun. What could be better than having perfect photos to cherish for a lifetime captured by an awesome, genuine, talented photographer?!”
"She was accommodating and kind and also just really fun."
Jamie + Sam
“Kristen was nothing less than STELLAR for both our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. She was always very responsive and super easy to talk to - I felt like I could ask her anything and she always gave us her honest and professional opinion. We all (bridal party included) had so much fun taking pictures - it felt so natural and Kristen fit in with everyone so well. I am so glad we had Kristen photograph such an important time in our lives!”

Ben + Kelsey
"Our wedding photos? Absolute perfection. Natural, easy, fun. If I learned anything while planning a wedding, it’s that your vendors need to be people you enjoy speaking to and have genuine good feelings about. Kristen is hilarious, super smart, professional, and dedicated to her couples. She’s calm and has a goal to make your day exactly what you want it to be. Her images speak for themselves, but you’ll end up gaining a friend when you book her."
