Meet the Magnolia Ridge Photography Team! We are here to make your Happily Ever After dreams come true!

Krista Smith: Owner/Lead Photographer/Manager
Photography is a means of capturing those fleeting moments that pass us too quickly as we rush through our days, and sharing that experience of that one moment, that one event, that memory to grab onto, is what keeps Krista behind the camera. An addiction to coffee helps too.

A notorious work-aholic, this mother of 2 is a high energy insomniac who dives feet first into every project and wedding as if it is the only one. Lover of compression pants and the color black (Her closet is rather morbid but incredibly slimming), she enjoys editing with a background of Hallmark movies or Harry Potter.  An avid reader and consumer of ALL THINGS S'MORES, life is about beauty, love and trying every Pinterest project she can.


Stephen Smith: Second Shooter/Technology and IT guru
Stephen is the geekier of the two and the one who is obsessed with all things tech. He is the first to get new gadgets and the latest video game system. His focus is on the DETAILS and hanging out with the guys. His relaxed but focused style is the same whether shooting a wedding, creating detailed cosplay armor, building a fire pit deck in the backyard or building a computer. He is the perfect complement for Krista's high energy with his patient relaxed manner.

After 13 years together, their own crazy wedding, 2 kids, various pets and going into their 5th year of business together, their style is melded and seamless.
