Hang Onto Your Hat Clients Love Their Photos! 

Hang Onto Your Hat Photography loves its clients, and they share that love right back!


Kris was the photographer for our wedding. She did an amazing job! We had an outdoor wedding and she did a great job getting all the surroundings in the pictures. Our dog was a big part of the day and she made sure he was a big part of the pictures. Kris worked with another photographer and the two of them captured every part of our wedding. I would highly recommend hiring Kris from Hang Onto Your Hat Photography!

-Kim F.

Kris is absolutely incredible. With only three weeks left till my wedding I needed to find a photographer on my budget after my first photographer canceled on me. Kris looked at my needs and helped me find a solution. I cannot wait to meet her and to see the amazing work she will produce!

-Jacob M.

"Kris works very professionally with a heart of patience and thoughtfulness. She brought her own assistant as the second photographer and extend the working hours when our reception went a little bit longer than expected. She worked on editing the photos as well and I ended up getting hundreds of beautiful photos."

-Ranran Z.

"Kris is so wonderful! She is very dedicated to her work and will do just about anything to get that great shot. My pictures turned out better than I could have ever imagined. She's very open to new ideas/poses and was a pleasure to work with."

-Sarah Y.

"Everything was great!!! Catered to the specific types of photos we wanted. Tremendous quality photos!!! Very professional, high level of care and service!"

-Rick C.

Kris took pictures of my parents after 50 plus years of marriage. Captured their love and personalities beautifully. So many compliments from those who viewed their pictures. Loved her professionalism. Put my parents at ease during their session. Recommend highly!"

-Kelly P.

"Kris took family portraits of my family. We went to Cherokee County Park outside of Colby, WI. It took us about a hour.

We were very impressed by the time Kris took on getting the " right" picture. We have so many great pictures, that it was hard to choose which ones to put on our walls. We also had our dog with us and she was patient with her. We love how on one picture we really wanted, she was able to photo shop our dog’s tongue so it looked very natural.  The only thing we would have changed was the hot and very humid day, but that was out of Kris' hands.

We would highly recommend Kris for family portraits!"

-Taffy H.

Kris's note:  this is not the photoshopped dog tongue.  However this picture did contribute a perfect doggy smile to another of their portraits :-)

A World Away

Kris traveled to Haiti with me on a mission trip. She took amazing pictures. The entire team was impressed with her work. The best pictures were those of the children but we loved them all. She definitely went above and beyond. She went to a third world country and stayed in less than desirable accomadations and still took excellent pictures!! We just hope she will travel with us again.

-Sue Dodd


"We haven't had our engagement or wedding pictures with Kris yet, but booked her because of her professionalism. She listened carefully to our needs from her on our special day. She has been very easy to contact and we very much look forward to working with her."

-Ashley B.

Kris was absolutely fantastic! We loved working with her and Vicki! They captured our day beautifully and we hardly knew they were there! Kris was very flexible with our schedule for the day which worked out great with the cold weather! We have hundreds of photos to re-live our day and we are so grateful for her work! We highly recommend her! Thank you so much Kris!

-Mallory V.

"Kris was absolutely amazing to work with. I loved how she was able to blend right in; we didn't even realize that she was taking pictures. The photography didn't interfere with the ceremony or the reception. Kris was very kind and respectful of not only us, but our friends and family as well. She also worked very hard to get pictures from every angle. She was getting on and off chairs, etc. We've only seen a preview of our pictures, but we can already see how talented she is, and we can't wait to see the rest. Kris and Vicki, we can't thank you enough for everything you've done. We truly appreciate it. 
Mo and Eric"

Kris's note:  Eric and Mo had everything planned so well that things went off without a hitch, and they were wonderful caring people.

Vicki and I do our best to blend in with the ceremony, including how we dress, where we stand, and talking with the couple and the officiant to make sure the spirit of the ceremony is maintained.

Standing on chairs (or dropping to the ground, or bending sideways) definitely will occur before or after the ceremony to get that best shot!

Eric and Mo also spared about 15 minutes away from their guests to get some knockout shots by the river before sunset.

Best wishes to you both!

"Kris was extremely professional! She and vikki did an amazing job creating artistic poses while capturing the family dynamics!! We can't say thank you enough!!!"

-Karen and Kevin

"We had Kristin for our wedding last night and she was amazing! The preview photos she sent me this morning are so beautiful, I'm just blown away by how great they look for the cost. She really disappeared into the crowd and just got as many candid shots as she could, just like we asked her to. It sounds bad, but we kind of forgot she was there. It looks like a pretty incredible job so far."

-Dylan and Nate

"Kris and her assistant did an amazing . She was organized, easy to contact, professional but fun and layed back,flexible, punctual. All around we hado an excellent experience. I also love the fact that you get to slowly see your pictures right from the day after and beyond you get to keep reliving that day as more photos get added to your album. And the pictures turned out gorgeous. They exceeded above and beyond our expectations and I would recommend her to anyone!!!"
