Hello there! My name is Kris,

I am the owner, founder, lead photographer, and photo editor at Red Wave Weddings. I started Red Wave as a way to work with talented photographers to work doing what we love. Since 2008, we have photographed dozens of weddings, which has helped us develop and evolve as wedding photographers. Thanks to all of our couples and their trust in our work, we have been able to keep doing what we love all of these years, and continue to do so. So, thank you for making it this far and I hope we can work together to make your wedding as unforgettable as possible!

Now, here’s a little more about me:

My life as a photographer began as a boy growing up in Lima, Peru. As the son of a photojournalist and journalist, I was fully immersed in the newspaper and magazine lifestyle from the get-go. My mother’s talent exposed me to countless stories, images, and perhaps most importantly—her antiquated Pentax SLR. That old camera was synonymous with a kid’s toy truck, and I’m forever grateful.

For me, the lens has always been about storytelling and the art of capturing connection. My work reflects this affinity through the shaping of natural and artificial light, personal passion, and years of experience.

During my college years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I worked as a photographer for the Daily Cardinal, The Badger Herald - the University’s newspapers. After graduating, I interned for the Wisconsin State Journal, and I have been happily freelancing as a photojournalist ever since.

My work has been published in publications such as the Wisconsin State Journal, The Capital Times, Madison Magazine, Milwaukee Magazine, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, The Star Tribune, and numerous others.

As an avid rock climber, backpacker, mountain biker, dog lover, and novice snow-boarder, I am constantly finding peace and inspiration in nature. Every year during my off-season I travel with my dog, Kyra, who keeps me safe, around the US, Canada, and Mexico.

I currently live in Boulder County, CO. I also do commercial and outdoor photography focusing in the rock climbing community. If you’d like to see my outdoor work, visit my other website at Redwavepictures.com
