Hi there! Welcome to my blog. Other than photography, writing has always been a passion of mine. I regularly keep a journal, I'm known for my extra long emails, and yes, I even wrote a dissertation. So, as Kristine Pringle Photography began to grow, it seemed only natural to retire the paper journal and begin this online adventure. I will use this site for posting pictures and stories from weddings and other photo shoots, and also for sharing personal pictures of the people and places I love. To my super cool clients, I am truly honored that you chose me to capture your memories. I hope that you enjoy the sneak peek of your photos. To my prospective clients, hopefully this will give you a little taste of what it’s like to work with me, and the kind of images you can expect. Thanks for stopping by! ~Kristine **PS - to view exclusively weddings, engagement sessions, or lifestyle photography, use the "categories" link above.
I first met Amelia while photographing one of her friend's weddings in 2008, and I was thrilled when she tracked me down to photograph her summer wedding in Lancaster, PA! Amelia and Dana thought of everything. Their wedding day was just magical -- I mean, there were even giant hot pink balloons! Need I say more? Here is the story of their day, as told through my lens. Enjoy!
I entered the bridal chamber...
And found Amelia getting her makeup done.
I knew it was gonna be a good day when I saw these babies!
And her gorgeous dress.
Seeing his little girl for the first time.
What a moment.
I adore this family!
Soon I was off to the groom's suite.
I found some really cute kids.
And Dana. How romantic!
He couldn't wait to see his bride!
But first, we did some casual shots of the guys.
Mostly, they were just excited about their socks.
Haha! They were having a good time...
But the ladies took the cake with these balloons.
A few of the stunning bride.
Her beautiful broach bouquet...
And a very special locket.
Drumore Estate is just lovely!
Here comes the bride!
Next it was time for portraits...family first.
Then the wedding party...
And it's onto the reception...
A few details...
And food. Delish!
The new Mr. and Mrs.
And their first dance.
Amelia's sister Jana. Her toast made everyone cry.
Dana's brother. His toast made everyone cry -- from laughing so hard. :)
They really did think of everything.
A little cake.
And then some parent dances.
Later there was a little surprise for Dana.
A choreographed song & dance routine by Amelia and friends.
There was a photo booth...
Then it was just time to dance.
The last song of the night...
And then sent the newly married couple off under an arch of sparklers.
Amelia & Dana, thank you for asking me to be a part of your wedding! It was perfection, and I know your life together will be just the same. Congratulations! With love and appreciation ~Kris
These photos are so much more than just pictures of what they look like. For Leli, Marc, and their 5-year old son Weston, they represent who they are. The expressions are priceless. They are so real, and they show such love! And such comfort in front of the camera. That makes my heart smile! Here are some of my favorites of this beautiful family. Enjoy!
Meet adorable 5-year old Weston.
And his parents, Leli and Marc.
We started with some "warm up" portraits.
Weston loved the camera!
And his beautiful Mommy!
I just watched and clicked away.
Next a few with Dad...
And the whole family.
By this point we were getting more playful.
"Can you show me your scared face?"
"How about your scary face?"
"Surprised face?" :-)
"Where's your super cute face?"
Love the simplicity of this image.
Later we did some running.
And to Daddy.
The expressions captured here are priceless.
The kind of expressions that bring tears to your eyes.
And bring you back to that very moment.
All of that running wore Weston out!
So we layed around on the grass relaxing. This is one of my favorites of the favorites.
Leli, you look gorgeous!
Some upside down family shots!
They were having too much fun.
We even got a few of Mom and Dad.
Leli and Marc, thank you for asking me to document your beautiful family! Editing these brought the biggest smile to my face and I hope seeing them brings the biggest smile to yours! Hugs! ~Kristine
I love newborn sessions -- especially when there is a doting big brother like Timothy to include. As I was prompting him to interact with his beautiful new baby sister Elphaba, his parents said something like, "Wow, you are one talented photographer." That meant so much (thank you Sarah and Marc!)....because obviously they hadn't seen any of the pictures yet. To them, the talent wasn't about technical ability, but about "kid-ability". And I'm still smiling thinking about our antics that morning. Here are just a few favorites I wanted to share as I'm finishing the whole gallery. Enjoy!
Both kids looking! What a beautiful family!
First we did a few pictures outside.
Not so much for baby El...though I absolutely LOVE them!
The outdoor shots were more for Timothy.
So I could chase him around to capture those natural smiles. What a cutie!
Mommy's almost 2-year old. We did some portraits...
And lots of playful candids.
Back inside for a "break" -- Timothy wanted to play play play! I think he's going to be a really good soccer player.
Elphaba just slept through it all.
Laying on Mommy makes me smile. LOVE!
Candid family love.
And one relaxed portrait. Perfect.
Since Timothy had to go to school, and Marc had to go to work, I next focused on Timothy with his new baby sister.
He thought I was funny.
And he was just melting my heart interacting with Elphaba.
And now...10 more of El. Could she be any sweeter?!
I love baby hands...
"Hmmm, what shall I do?"
These last two are my favorites. What a precious little beauty!
Sarah and Marc, thank you for asking me to photograph your sweet family, and congratulations on your new addition! Elphaba is gorgeous! And Timothy is just adorable! I hope you love the sneak peek as much as I do. Hugs! ~Kristine
As soon as I heard that Adrienne was having her wedding at her childhood home, my heart swooned. I couldn't help but think about "Father of the Bride" -- one of my favorite movies of all time. Upon meeting her and her family, my heart swooned again. Adrienne is one of 8 kids, and the first daughter to get married. Her entire family was just lovely. And so was Matt's. Their wedding day was filled with so much love and emotion -- not to mention perfect weather, a beautiful ceremony, and a fabulous necklace that Adrienne's mom found at an antique store. Here are just a few favorites from their day. Enjoy!
I showed up to find the beautiful Adrienne getting her makeup done...
Then I photographed a few details. Her dress...
I love a statement necklace with a wedding gown!
I have no words.
She is just a beauty.
With the most beautiful heart.
Could these girls be any cuter?!!
This is Adrienne's youngest sister.
I adored her...and she obviously adored her big sister.
Cute kids everywhere!
How special to have these pictures with your siblings on your wedding day.
I don't normally blog a bunch of family portraits, but I so admire Adrienne's parents and they amazing job they have done raising 8 beautiful children!
Off to the church. Matt was beyond excited to see his bride.
The moment of anticipation.
And there she comes.
Here is a little glimpse of the ceremony.
It was beautiful.
And they're married!
While waiting for the wedding party to arrive, we did a few "traditional" portraits.
And then a few with the wedding party. Something classic.
Then it was time for some more modern images of A & M.
I love that their style is so timeless.
Cheers! Time to party!
The gorgeous setting.
A few more details...
And it was time for dinner -- and dessert!
During dinner, there were some amazing toasts, and Adrienne's little sister even recited a poem by E.E. Cummings.
Adrienne watched in complete wonder.
And so did Matt.
It. was. awesome.
The first dance.
Was followed by the father-daughter dance.
As a mom of 2 little girls, I can't help but get choked up during these. Especially when the emotion is so powerful.
I think Adrienne's mom would agree.
It was a perfect moment.
The dance floor was packed the rest of the night.
Adrienne and Matt floated around dancing with siblings, family, and friends...
And of course, each other!
Adrienne and Matt, thank you for allowing me to forever document your wedding day, and for making me feel so welcome. Thanks also to your beautiful families and friends! I'm so happy I could give you these memories. Congratulations! ~Kristine
Pictures at home are special. As the saying goes, it's where the heart is, so the pictures are always a little more personal and sentimental. It's also a really easy place for a photo shoot, especially with three little ones. Ryan and Daniel are parents to sweet little Emerson, and 7-month old TWINS -- Henry and Andrew. Here are a few favorites (okay....more like a lot, and there are still so many more where these came from!) from our morning together. Enjoy!
What a gorgeous family and what great summer colors!
A bunch of frames later and we finally got it! Love!
Even the "outtakes" are precious. :)
Mommy took the boys inside to eat...so I focused on Daddy and his girl for awhile.
We did the things she normally does at home in her backyard.
We ran races...
And she loved it all.
That's the best way to get those real smiles.
Make sure they're having fun!
Those curls, those eyelashes! Emerson is just stunning.
Twin time! So so handsome!
I haven't photographed that many twins...but I have to say that it was really obvious how close these two are.
It was the way they held on to each other and the way they looked at each other. So so sweet!
Ryan took my recent photography workshop so she could take even better pics of her beautiful kids. That means, though, that she'll probably be behind the camera EVEN more than she already is...
Mom to mom, I get it. To have a nice portrait with each of your kids is so special. This is Henry.
And this is Andrew. Ryan you are beautiful!
A few candids...
I had such a hard time choosing which to blog...
A good problem to have. :-)
We took a little break inside to cool off...Emerson loved jumping on her bed.
And her brothers were loving the playroom.
Ryan, your color choices couldn't be more perfect!
This is so real life.
And so is this. Hehe!
The boys and their nursery. Love.
Back outside, it was time to play again...
I wanted to make sure we got some of Daniel and the twins since we got so many with Emerson earlier.
Getting ready for his close up.
I could post and post and post.
They are all just that sweet!
What do you do when it's 98 degrees outside at 10 am? Put on your bathing suit!
And splash splash splash!
We had to make sure Henry and Andrew would be okay with the splashing...
And luckily, they loved every minute of it. Ryan and Daniel, thank you for allowing me to spend a morning at your beautiful home with your precious family! I hope you love the little sneak peek! Hugs, Kristine
She is their everything...and this session sums up everything I love about a lifestyle photography session. A few natural portraits, lots of real smiles, barefeet, eyelashes, playing at the park, laughter, love, a super cute dog, maybe a silhouette or two?! The list goes on. I really want to blog EVERY single picture...so I decided to make a slideshow at the end. To the song "Everything". It's one of my favorites and one that reminds me how we as parents feel about our kids. Enjoy!
Meet Nicole and John, their beautiful 4-year old daughter Ava, and their precious pup Brody.
Ava loves Brody.
And he loves her back.
Since this lake is pretty much their backyard...
A few silhouettes were a must!
Ava being a model.
Ava being a kid.
She is such a stunning little girl.
I told her we needed a few nice smiles...
And then we could go to the park.
She happily led the way.
These playful images are some of my favorites.
They'd be so perfect on a playroom wall...
And in a photobook.
It was definitely hard choosing favorites...
So there are so many more in the slideshow at the end.
I think she was having fun!
Gorgeous mommy! Love the portrait...
Love the candids...
Kisses for mommy...
Kisses for Ava.
Daddy's future sailing partner.
Love more! Could their matching Kelly's Kids outfits be more perfect!?!
Since Nicole is a Kelly's Kid rep herself, she chose a second favorite outfit for Ava.
I love this eyelash shot in black and white...
But for the rest, the color is just so vibrant and fun.
What a beauty!
So sweet and innocent.
Love her painted toes!
Our session couldn't have gone better.
Nicole and John, thank you for asking me to photograph your beautiful family! It was so good to see you after so many years since college and to meet your sweet girl and Brody too -- what a trooper he was! Hope you love the sneak peek as much as I do. Hugs! ~Kristine
Click on the play button below to see a musical slideshow with a bunch more images from their session...and make sure your volume is turned up. Nicole and John, thank you for EVERYTHING. :)
Lindsay and Andy grew up just 100 yards from each other, but they didn't meet until high school. And now nearly 10 years later, they tied the knot. What an amazing couple, and what an amazing wedding! Here are a few favorites that sum up their beautiful story. Enjoy!
The photography began at Lindsay's parents home, where the gorgeous bride was getting her makeup done.
LOVE the blue shoes!
After Lindsay's hair was finished...
It was time to get dressed...
And become a bride! So sweet!
Onto the ceremony.
Lindsay's Dad is so proud of his only daughter.
There is just a closeness in this family that would be obvious to even a stranger.
