Kristin is wonderfully talented and easy to work with.  She is real, no drama, no nonsense, and really has an eye for the perfect photo. She has a natural ability to make models and real people alike feel comfortable as her subjects, and simply put, is a breath of fresh air, with no attitude or ego to speak of. My favorite photographer to work with, hands down, and I can't wait to have her camera aimed at me again — Maddie H.

Kristin is the only photographer I'll use! She has created truly incredible and unique images for my dating profiles, personal creative projects as well as business promotional marketing fodder. Kristin is extremely versatile, she even shot a beautiful music video for me! Every image has her signature style and she is an absolute pleasure to work with. —Jennique M.

Kristin Cofer is an incredible photographer. She's taken my photos twice now, and she makes me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world. The pictures she takes are gorgeous and creative. I'm not a professional model, and she makes me feel incredibly comfortable in front of the camera. Even more, Kristin is incredibly versatile. She can shoot anything you need, from commercial to headshots to family portraits to product photos. I don't know how she does it; she's just really talented. — Elizabeth O.
