Self Portrait of Kristin Reimer of Photomuse.PINIMAGE

Self Portrait of Kristin Reimer of       Photomuse.

I spent my childhood engrossed in magic, fairy tales and mythology. My interests all involved the art of seeing things that might not be apparent to everyone else. It came as no surprise that I became a visual artist.

Creativity is my form of communication. Painting, sculpture and later photography, are all tools that allow me to document the thoughts that words may not fully express.

Thinking that I wanted to make a difference to the world through photography, I focused on photojournalism and documentary photography while working at Magnum Photos and later as the studio manager for renowned photographers Elliott Erwitt and Ed Kashi/VII.

I discovered that making a difference to a couple or a family was the most rewarding. My empathy allows me to “see” the emotions, words and thoughts. I hunt for visual clues and pieces to the puzzle together to create a portrait of the entire day.

I love that I can be a visual archivist of all the myriad emotions that the couple experiences on their wedding day.

Being deeply invested in the lives of the couples enhances our collaboration. When I can provide you the safety of being yourself in front of my camera, you are able to provide me with the most honest and heartfelt aspect of yourself.

This confidence, as captured by me, will translate into phenomenal photographs.

And for the “official” credentials:

Kristin Reimer, a visual artist and photographer with over 15 years of wedding and portrait photography experience, founded Photomuse in 2002. Focusing on fine-art and documentary wedding photography, Photomuse continues to garner award-winning imagery that is recognized by her peers in the professional guilds: the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers {ISPWP}, Fearless Photographers, the Wedding Photojournalists Association {WPJA} and the Artistic Guild of Wedding Photojournalism {AGWPJA}.

Originally a painter, she concentrated solely on photography while attending college at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Kristin’s photography reflects her past work as a painter; producing tactile imagery that is rich and lush and uses multiple layers to create depth. Prior to founding Photomuse, she focused on photojournalism and documentary photography while working at Magnum Photos and subsequently as the studio manager for renowned photographers Elliott Erwitt and Ed Kashi.

Kristin’s wedding photography has been featured in the book “Wedding Photography – A Guide to Posing.” Her wedding work, as well as her personal work, has been featured on blogs nationally and internationally as well as published in print and exhibited in galleries.
