My name is Kristen Driscoll, and I’m a Jersey Shore photographer who specializes in weddings, children and families looking to capture you being you!
I deliver bright, candid photography that captures people being the best version of themselves. What does that mean? My photos will capture you—and your vibrant personality—at its best. Every person is unique, and so is every photo I’ll snap of you.
I’ve been photographing the Jersey Shore for years, capturing beach weddings, outdoor ceremonies, family portraits, pregnancy portraits, a baby’s first year, local bands and much, much more.
My passion is to capture the emotion of every moment—whether it’s the adrenaline of live music, the romance of your wedding, or the tenderness of your child’s first year of life. I’m the Jersey Shore photographer who will freeze your most special moments in time, leaving you with visuals that can’t be beat.
In 2013, I was voted the Best Photographer in Monmouth County, NJ by the Asbury Park Press’ Reader’s Choice Awards, and in 2012 and 2013, I was nominated for an Asbury Music Award for my work photographing local bands.
My photos have been featured in publications like Speak into my Good Eye, The Aquarian Weekly, The Coaster, Sound Spike and more.
How did I get into this business? A passion for capturing life’s special moments runs in my family.
When I was growing up, my father was a New York City Fire Marshal. He also loved photography, and became the head of the photo unit, shooting fire scenes all across the city. I followed in his footsteps. As a little girl, I couldn’t keep my hands off his camera, and I even used his old film SLR to take my first photography course.
But it wasn’t until I was in my 20s that I really found my stride. I started photographing live bands in Asbury Park, NJ—a town that will always have a special place in my heart as one of the most vibrant sources of art and music on the Jersey Shore.
Soon, the musicians I was photographing started asking me to take photos of their weddings, families, children, and album covers. That’s when I really knew that I had found my calling. By 2010, I left my day job as a Registered Nurse and started photographing full-time. I’ve never looked back!
As a Jersey Shore photographer, I take photos every single day, both for work and for pleasure. But honestly, I love taking photos so much that I never feel like I’m working! I’ve never been more fulfilled.
Below, you’ll find some of my favorite shots from my personal collection. To thank you for letting me and my camera into your life, I like to give you a little glimpse of my own.
I look forward to photographing you being your best self!
Here I am with my new husband, JPA! We were married in September of 2013, and couldn’t be happier.
When JPA’s sister lived in New York City, we would always park near this mural. So, one day, I perched my camera on top of a parking meter, set the self-timer and created one of my favorite photos of the two of us.
These are two of my favorite childhood photos. Can’t you just feel my excitement for Christmas in the photo on the left? If you ask my mom, she’ll tell you this is one of her favorite shots of me. She’ll also tell you my enthusiasm for life (and, let’s be honest, for Christmas) hasn’t died down one bit!
On the right, you’ll find a photo of my father holding me for the first time. Dad was a very special person, and his last words to me were, “Do your best in life.” I really try to, every day.
Some more fun facts about me: I love Oreos, The Beatles, and chocolate peanut butter ice cream. And I’ve got more love in my life than I know what to do with!
There is no time better than right now to contact me to schedule your session. Let me capture the precious moments in your life that you will look back on in the years to come.
