Timeless, story-driven wedding films




Kristen Kiraly is an award-winning documentary filmmaker turned wedding and brand cinematographer. Her passion for telling authentic and timeless stories is evident in all of her work, whether it be the intimate wedding films she captures or the way she tells engaging stories to highlight a brand’s mission. 

Kristen earned a master’s degree in documentary journalism from NYU and a bachelor’s from Colgate University, where she served as captain of the cross country and track teams (Go ‘Gate!). As a professional filmmaker, she has traveled extensively helping to produce over thirty televised documentaries, and has been awarded one of the nation’s most prestigious recognitions for broadcast journalism, the Alfred I. duPont award. Kristen now takes the same unobtrusive and unscripted approach in capturing the love and emotion, in all of the little and big moments, on her couples’ wedding days.

Kristen currently lives in Santa Monica, California with husband, two children, and two rescue dogs.



I am all about real moments- those emotional steps before you see your love for the first time, the candid laughs and kisses, and the big moments that you planned so long for. My goal is to create a story-driven wedding film that truly reflects all of the love and happiness of your wedding day.
