Check Out Cristen Clark’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cristen Clark.

Hi Cristen, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Fourteen years ago, I chose to dive into the wedding industry. I started off working with other wedding photographers to get experience and learn from them.

I worked endless hours photographing families and did anything I could to get experience. I loved working with families but soon figured out that being part of a couple’s special wedding day was my true passion.

I love the hustle, helping guide the couple through the process, and knowing that my pictures will be enjoyed for generations to come. There is nothing more fulfilling than knowing you are a small part of a lifelong marriage!

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Overall, it has been a smooth road. I did take on fewer weddings while we were starting our family. In the past 3 years, I am back to my full load of weddings.

I have learned that taking on 20 weddings a year is the perfect work/life balance, and I only take on 1 wedding a weekend so I can be fresh for each event! It is more than just a job for me… it is a huge piece of my life and my story!

My husband has always been supportive of all of my crazy ideas and knows how happy meeting new couples make me!

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I specialize in wedding photography. I am known for getting my clients back their images within 1 week! I plan my whole week around the couple’s wedding so that I can take all the time I need to edit all the photos.

I only take on 1 wedding a weekend so that I can focus on the couple and while I am editing, the event is still very much fresh. I feel I can edit better that way.

As I edit, I realize which are the natural smiles and which ones are more staged. I love to relive the wedding day! I also am very attentive to the couple and reply quickly to them! I love what I do!

How can people work with you, collaborate with you, or support you?
I love to support others in my industry and collaborate! It is simply the best! We all have one goal… to make the wedding day perfect for the couple!

I love to be followed (and tagged) on Instagram (@autumnolivephotography) or Facebook (Autumn Olive Photography).

I do sometimes get so caught up in a meeting with couples and editing that I don’t post as much as I should to social media and my blog. I am working on this! My email is and my phone is 828-442-4599.
