About Us

Kristen Herber Photography was founded in 2002 and has been providing quality photography to the Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota area ever since. Located in Oakdale, we specialize in weddings and babies but also have extensive experience in general portrait, maternity, boudoir, and senior portrait photography; as well as commercial work for both product and real estate. We currently are operating as a part-time business, only able to accept a select amount of sessions per month, with newborn and wedding as our main focus. Recently, Kristen moved her studio away from downtown St Paul to the comfort of her family’s home, ideal for small children, family, and single-person portraits.

We pride ourselves on providing quality products and being very flexible with requests.

We do travel for destination weddings! Please contact us for more information.

Kristen Herber Photography prides itself on providing quality products and being very flexible with requests. Great knowledge in photography allows for breathtaking images both formal and candid. We choose only quality photo albums for your proofs and final albums. We take pride in every image and offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Taking time to get to know clients is part of what gives each wedding and portrait that personal touch. Kristen enjoys making special connections with each couple and in exchange, clients feel their photos express their true personalities and expressions. 



Hello! I’m Kristen. Ever since I was young, I have been infatuated with capturing the beauty around me. As a wedding photographer, my goal is to capture all the emotions and details of your day so that when you look back at your photos 10…20…50 years from now, you’ll instantly be taken back in time. I feel incredibly blessed to be able to have such an amazing job and love spending time getting to know each of my clients personally. In addition to being a professional photographer for over 18 years, I also taught classes on outdoor wedding portraiture and studio lighting for nearly a decade. There are very few things that make me as happy as when I’m behind the camera; international experiences, quaint coffee shops, giving back to my community, and kitties!

I welcome all feedback and inquiries about my work.

    Hi Kristen,

    You took some great shots of some friends of mine for their engagement; Jodi Rick and Nick Buche. It been over 20 years since I had my picture taken professionally. I would like to get some taken. Would thus be something you’d be interested in doing? I have other questions as well. Could you please contact me at your earliest convenience?
