Hi there! Welcome to my blog. Other than photography, writing has always been a passion of mine. I regularly keep a journal, I'm known for my extra long emails, and yes, I even wrote a dissertation. So, as Kristine Pringle Photography began to grow, it seemed only natural to retire the paper journal and begin this online adventure. I will use this site for posting pictures and stories from weddings and other photo shoots, and also for sharing personal pictures of the people and places I love. To my super cool clients, I am truly honored that you chose me to capture your memories. I hope that you enjoy the sneak peek of your photos. To my prospective clients, hopefully this will give you a little taste of what it’s like to work with me, and the kind of images you can expect. Thanks for stopping by! ~Kristine **PS - to view exclusively weddings, engagement sessions, or lifestyle photography, use the "categories" link above.
On Saturday August 1st, I photographed the beautiful wedding of Hannah and Dan. The ceremony was held at Rooke Chapel on the campus of Bucknell University and an awesome reception followed at The Lewisburg Hotel. We had perfect summer weather for outdoor pictures, but we also got some great indoor shots -- like in the Chapel and also in the campus GYM! As in the weight room. Enjoy!
Hannah was a gorgeous bride! She was extremely calm and ready to see her groom...
And Dan was definitely ready to see his bride. Hannah and Dan are the nicest and most fun couple, as you will see in the pictures to come.
A few details...what amazing flowers! Loved them!
Ceremony time. I love this image of Hannah's Dad walking her down the aisle.
Dan got a little emotional during his vows, and it was so sweet when Hannah touched his cheek and wiped away a tear.
A lighter moment. Dan struggles to get his ring on. Too funny!
And they're married! This image was totally impromptu after they signed the marriage license and it makes me smile. They're so perfect together.
Right after the ceremony, we did a group photo in front of Rooke Chapel. Could they have asked for a better day or bluer skies?
Then we did a few inside the Chapel. Here we're on the balcony.
And here we are again. Same window, just exposed for differently.
Hannah and Dan met while lifting weights in the gym at Bucknell. So obviously we had to go have some fun in there. I believe this is the machine Hannah was using, and apparently Dan went over to help her because she was lifting "way too much weight". So cute.
Such a fun wedding party!
Then it was time for some images of Hannah and Dan alone around campus. Beautiful!
Such a cute couple!
The reception was at The Lewisburg Hotel. This is another image that makes me smile - I love that Dan is holding the bouquet.
A few reception details. The cake was breathtaking, and the centerpieces were so classy and unique. Each table had a different glass teapot filled with fresh flowers.
Love this moment during their first dance.
And I love this one of the packed dance floor. I'm pretty sure this is "Shout".
Hannah and Dan were out there most of the night together, which made me a really happy photographer.
How could I not end with this one?!?! Hannah and Dan, thank you for asking me to document your wedding day and for being so easy and FUN to work with! I hope you and your families and friends like the little preview of images and I can't wait for you to see the rest! With love and appreciation ~Kristine
On Saturday June 20th, Scott and I photographed an amazing destination wedding -- for Nicole and Kris in New York's beautiful Finger Lakes region. Both the ceremony and reception took place at Esperanza Mansion overlooking Keuka Lake, and everything was truly breathtaking.
As I mentioned in the previous blog post of their rehearsal dinner, Nicole and Kris just returned from a 3-week honeymoon in Australia, so I waited until they were home to do their blogs. I have been so excited to share these images, and I know that everyone (especially the newlyweds!) has been so excited to see them. So without further adieu, here is a little taste of what we captured on that awesome day last month...
I started my day with Nicole as she was getting ready in the bridal suite at the mansion. I was loving the mirrors they had in there. They allowed me to get some creative angles like this one...
And to shoot unobtrusively when it really mattered, like here.
Nicole was soooooooo stunning!
As were all the ladies! I LOVED the color of their dresses.
One of my favorite shots of the guys...just hanging out at the bar. It was another really well placed mirror on Esperanza's part. :-)
Onto the ceremony. Scott stood outside in the rain to get these shots...
And he let me stay dry inside the tent. Nicole and Kris recited their vows...
They exchanged rings...
And then everyone applauded as they were introduced for the first time as husband and wife.
After the ceremony, it was time for portraits. What do you do when it's raining and you want outdoor pictures? Find cover! Thanks to Scott and all the groomsmen for moving patio furniture so we could get this shot.
We took a quick drive to Keuka College, Nicole's alma mater, and they were such troopers for walking through the rain with no umbrella! 'Anything for good pictures' is just one reason why I love our couples.
Upon returning to the mansion, we did a few more portraits high above the lake.
Gorgeous! The couple, and the view!
Reception time. For the first dance, I used a wide-angle lens to get the entire room...
And Scott worked his magic with a telephoto lens. If you look at the previous image again, you will see that this one is the EXACT same moment. Gotta love when a bride and groom kiss on the dance floor!
Nicole and Kris had one of the most beautiful wedding cakes I'd ever seen. It was perfect for a wine country wedding, and the colors were amazing!
Another one to show off the cake, with the happy couple blurred in the background. Fun!
Then it was time to get down! Literally! I love a bride who can tear up the dance floor on her wedding day. Yep, Nicole pretty much rocks!
Everyone had such a great time, and it definitely shows in these pictures.
Couldn't leave out a sweet moment. I love this image of Nicole's parents with Nicole and Kris in the background.
And to include a funny moment, Kris made everyone laugh when he put on his "Night Blaster" to take off Nicole's garter.
Nicole and Kris, how do we begin to thank you for making us feel like old friends, and for sending us such a sweet thank you card before you even left for your honeymoon!?!?!! We had a fabulous time spending the weekend with you and your families and friends, and we wish you every happiness as you start your lives together as husband and wife. Congratulations again! With love and appreciation ~Kristine and Scott
It has been 4 whole weeks since Scott and I photographed our first destination rehearsal dinner and wedding in the beautiful Finger Lakes, but I postponed blogging for good reason. Nicole and Kris honeymooned in Australia for almost a month (now that's a honeymoon!), and they emailed me to let me know they returned home on Friday. I wanted their blogs to be at the top of the page when they returned to the states, but I know everyone has been anxiously awaiting a sneak peek of the pictures. So at last -- here they are! I will be doing the rehearsal dinner blog today, and the wedding will follow in a day or two.
The ship set sail at 6:30 pm, so we had optimal outdoor light for photography combined with the incredible views of the water, vineyards, and mountains.
It was such a fun atmosphere. We loved capturing candids as everyone came on board and grabbed a cocktail. Here Kris laughs with some of his groomsmen...
And Nicole laughs with one of her bridesmaids. It's so priceless when we can catch a moment like this between a bride and one of her best friends.
Same moment, different photographer, different lens, different perspective. I love how Scott focused on Nicole here. Does this look like a happy woman about to get married or what!!! She has the most gorgeous smile!
After a lot of mingling, Kris's Dad gave a great welcome speech and toast.
And the images of the crowd's reaction are some of my favorites from the entire evening.
Now Nicole and Kris have great candid memories with not only their best friends, but also with each other.
Kris's Dad did a great job, and here Nicole's Dad jokes with him about having to keep working on his wedding speech for the following night.
Sweet. I had to squeeze this one in -- I just loved Nicole's grandma.
After dinner, we spent some time doing some portraits. This is Nicole's immediately family -- her parents Debbie and Ed, and her 2 beautiful sisters.
And this is Kris's immediate family. During portrait time with 2 photographers, I always get the straight on, more traditional looking at the camera shots, and Scott shoots from the side to get portraits like this. I call them "candid portraits", and I love how they turn out.
Of course I have to share just a few more of the bride and groom-to-be. While I was getting this shot of them at the front of the boat...
Scott captured some through the captain's window.
And we were all really excited when the captain said they could drive! Nicole and Kris, thank you for asking us to attend and photograph your rehearsal dinner. It was so much fun, and we are so happy that we could document this important part of your entire weekend. We hope you like these as much as we do, and we can't wait for you to see the wedding pics tomorrow or Wednesday! Hugs! ~Kristine and Scott
On June 27th, Scott and I photographed a VERY special wedding, for my brother Mark and his beautiful wife Jessica. An intimate ceremony and reception were held at The William Cox Inn in Charlottesville, Virginia, and we couldn't have asked for a better day. The Inn was absolutely incredible, and everyone was able to stay there because it is 10,000 square feet. We literally got lost inside! And the grounds, well, they were definitely a photographer's dream come true. I could have spent their entire reception doing photos! We also had gorgeous weather, and we spent our portrait time during "the golden hour" thanks to good planning by Mark and Jess!
To digress though, I have to share what an awesome story Mark and Jess have. Mark had been wanting to go to Costa Rica to surf for at least 10 years, and finally, 3 years ago, he went there with a few of his friends. Jessica, who lived in Minnesota at the time, happened to be in Costa Rica with some of her girlfriends during the exact same week. They met on day 2 of their vacation and spent the majority of their time together. The rest is pretty much history. How amazing that what started out as a long distance romance and lots of flights between Minnesota and Virginia has now turned into a lifetime together.
Jessica and Mark live in Richmond with their two adorable pups, Kaya and Kodi, and they were recently blessed with the exciting news that they are expecting a baby girl this October. Her name will be Vivienne, and we are all so excited to meet her! Wanting to get married before the baby arrived, Jess and Mark planned their wedding in just a few months, and every little detail turned out perfect. I cannot wait to share the moments, details, and portraits that we captured on that beautiful day. Enjoy!
I started the day with Jessica's gorgeous dress...
And some getting ready shots. The girls were so cute in their white bathrobes.
Mark was really calm and ready to see his beautiful bride.
Jess, you were so completely stunning! Beautiful inside and out, I am so proud to call you my new sister!
Pretty typical - I love letting brides peek at the pictures!
My brother was looking as handsome as I had ever seen him. Yep, he's got good looks and brains too - he designed our entire photography website and blog from scratch, as in no template, just 100% computer nerd coding! ;-)
Not only is he a talented web designer, he is also one of the funniest and nicest people you will ever meet, and he is definitely one of my best friends. Love you bro!
Thanks to my amazing husband for getting those great shots! We worked the wedding, but managed to get in some photos too!
Our daughter Elsa even got in on the action. She loved Uncle Mark's flower and almost broke it pre-ceremony.
Thankfully it stayed intact. I LOVE Jess's taste.
Her bouquet was awesome. Lillies are some of my favorites!
Onto the ceremony. Seriously, could you ask for a better view?!!
They had the beautiful mountains to the front, and the beautiful Inn behind them.
There were moments of sincerity...
And moments of laughter that I loved capturing.
After the ceremony, we did a bunch of portraits. A classic close-up...
A modern full-length shot...
And some with their little miracle in the making.
This one just gets me. Baby Vivienne is very blessed to have parents like Mark & Jess.
Ahhh, the sweet golden light appeared!
And Scott wins for my favorite portrait. I love this silhouette with the glowing wheat in the foreground!
We even managed to get one with Kodi & Kaya real quick.
And of course I had to show the bling!
Jess spent a lot of time daydreaming about what the dinner table would look like, and this is what she came up with - it belongs in a magazine! The reception was held in the gorgeous barn behind the Inn.
The centerpieces were Pottery Barn lanterns and silver pails of ivy, roses & lilies.
After an amazing dinner, Jess and Mark shared their first dance.
And then the parent dances took place. Jess and her Dad were so cute.
Our Mom made it 3/4 way through the song without crying, but we knew it was coming. I love this moment shared between 2 people I love so much.
After some toasts and cake cutting, it was party time!
The newlyweds had a blast showing off their moves...
Until the sheriff came to see what all the noise was about. After realizing it was a wedding though, he turned on his lights and let Mark & Jess pose with his car. I love this shot I snagged using high ISO and the lights from the siren. Flash would have ruined all those cool colors!
And a fun high ISO shot by Scott. The dance floor was packed all night, thanks to a great DJ and our really fun families and friends!
Mark & Jess, thanks for being such a great bro & sis! We love you both! Congratulations! Love, Kris & Scott

On Saturday June 13th, Scott and I photographed Jen and Shane's beautiful and fun wedding. The ceremony was held in Selinsgrove at Wesley United Methodist Church, and a big reception followed at Front Street Station in Northumberland. We couldn't have asked for better weather, or a more fun couple and wedding party! It was such a perfect day!
A perfect day, with another gorgeous Pringle Photography bride, as per usual. :-)
I loved all the different ways Jen incorporated her grandparents into the day. More to follow...
A quick glimpse into the ceremony. I love this moment as Jen put the ring on Shane's finger.
The first time a couple is introduced as the new Mr. and Mrs. is often one of my favorite photos of the day. Jen and Shane are totally glowing with happiness.
On Friday June 5th, Scott and I photographed Natalie and Dave's gorgeous Spyglass Winery wedding. The day started out with some rain, but luck was on our side, because the rain cleared out after the ceremony, so we were able to do outdoor pictures as planned. Natalie and Dave are still in London on their honeymoon (lucky!), but they told me they would have Internet access, so hopefully they'll be able to check this before they return home.
While Natalie was getting her hair and makeup done, I took a few pictures of her amazing dress -- and what a perfect spot for it to be hanging!
Natalie has the most beautiful blue eyes. I love this shot.
And this one of all the girls around the bride.
Totally totally stunning. You'd never know it was raining outside....we were under a covered deck.
Onto the ceremony. I loved how Natalie's cathedral length veil looked coming down the aisle.
Scott did some shooting from the side...
And as always, I had center aisle.
Woohoo! Dave was checking the doppler, and the rain had moved out!
So that meant lots of outdoor pictures at Spyglass. Their wedding party was a blast!
Love it! The scenery is awesome there.
And of course we had to use Natalie's veil for a romantic shot.
The first dance. The woman in the black dress behind them is Natalie's Mom.
A great moment taken at high ISO -- so fun!
There were some really funny toasts.
I absolutely love Dave's laugh in this one!
The dance floor was packed all night. The girls definitely had a good time...
And so did the guys!
And the newlyweds, well, they were dancing machines! They were together on the dance floor most of the night, which made us really happy.
This is one of my favorites. The moment is priceless, but it's even better because those are Dave's parents to the left. I love when I can intentionally shoot to include friends and family in the background.
Natalie and Dave, thank you so much for asking us to be there to document your day! We had a fantastic time! You and your families and friends are all so wonderful! We hope you are having an awesome honeymoon in London, and that you can see this before you return home! Talk soon! Hugs! ~Kris & Scott
On Saturday May 30th, Scott and I photographed the amazing wedding of our good friends, Cori and Tyler. Scott has known Tyler almost his entire life, as they grew up in the same small town, and Tyler's older brother Nate is Scott's best friend. I have known Tyler about 8 years now, and I had the privilege of meeting Cori just a few months ago when Scott and I did their engagement session in State College. It immediately seemed like we were old friends. She is such a sweetheart.
So after their engagement session, I was counting down the days til I could get them in front of my camera again. And finally last Saturday, the day arrived. The wedding and reception took place at Stone House at Stirling Ridge in Warren, New Jersey, and it couldn't have been more perfect. The venue was so fabulous, the weather was perfect, and to say that Cori is one of the most beautiful brides (inside and out) that we've ever photographed would be an understatement. She was absolutely breathtaking. Just wait til you see her!
I started the day with Cori and her awesome girlfriends as they were getting beautified. Nate's wife Danielle is quite the makeup artist.
And then I spent some quality time with Cori's incredible gown. It was so classy and beautiful.
Because their ceremony was late in the day, Cori and Tyler opted to see each other beforehand. We did all the photos before the ceremony, which was so nice because they could attend and enjoy their cocktail hour. Here Tyler is waiting to see his beautiful bride for the first time.
Love the smiles...
The moment was so sweet.
After the big reveal, we started with the portraits. Tyler was looking so handsome.
And Cori was a major traffic stopper. Stunner!
I love this one. Her eyelashes are amazing...
And her smile was beaming.
Probably because she was getting ready to marry her best friend.
We did just a few portraits of Cori and Tyler at the gazebo and gardens...
Because we were soon headed up to The Stone House for a bunch more. This place was insanely awesome!
Their gorgeous wedding party.
I love when Scott shoots with me to get the "candid portraits" like this one.
So fun! You guys rock!
Onto the ceremony. All eyes were on Cori as she walked down the aisle.
And everyone laughed with Cori as she went in for an early kiss after saying her vows. It was the cutest thing ever!
There was a sand ceremony instead of a unity candle.
And then Cori and Tyler were pronounced husband and wife. Their smiles say it all.
There was a great cocktail hour after the ceremony...
With even more amazing food and drink. Cori, these pics are for you! :-)
And just before the reception was starting, we stole the newlyweds for a few more portraits. We had to take advantage of that golden hour light!
The reception started with the first dance.
And then there was a hilarious toast by Tyler's older brothers, Ian and Nate.
Yep, way hilarious.
Nate then continued the humor with the best Billy Jean rendition I had ever seen!
Then there was a Polish Polka Dance, which has been a tradition since Cori's parents' wedding. Cori even looks beautiful with a big babooshka on her head.
Everyone took turns dancing with Cori, and then they formed a big circle around her, which Tyler eventually broke through.
After that, the circle turned into some kind of kicking contest. Can you name that celebrity?? Tyler lived with HGTV's Carter Oosterhouse for a couple of years in LA. Carter and his girlfriend Ginny are two of the nicest, most down to earth people ever.
Lots of dancing followed...
Doesn't look like anyone had any fun at all.
Gotta give props to my husband for this shot, which was taken at 3200 ISO using only the light from the videographer's camera.
Cori and Tyler, what can we say? You two are the best. You are so obviously perfect together, and we couldn't be happier for you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for asking us to photograph your wedding. We hope you like the pictures as much as we do! Lots of love! Kris & Scott

On Saturday May 16th, Scott and I had the opportunity to photograph Randi & Dan's beautiful wedding. The ceremony took place at Jersey Shore Presbyterian Church, and the reception followed at The Valley Inn in Duboistown. Even with the monsoon-like rain during our portrait time, the day was flawless, and the rain made for some truly one-of-a-kind photos that I totally adore.
I started the day with some getting ready shots of the girls. Randi looked amazing.
And she had the cutest little flower girl. If I was going to single out one pre-ceremony portrait, this had to be it...
Especially since Dan's little ring bearer was also too cute for words.
Onto the ceremony. The church was beautiful.
Randi and Dan recited their vows and exchanged rings...
In front of 200+ family members and friends. I love this fisheye shot.
Upon leaving the church, it was barely raining, so we decided to keep our original outdoor game plan for photos. Well....then the monsoon came. The wind was blowing the rain sideways, so I can't tell you how much Randi and Dan rock my world for their laid-back anything-goes personalities. Not only were they willing to get out of the trolley in the hurricane-like weather, they were willing to walk slowly and look at each other with perfect smiles. Love you guys! And the photo!
As the reception was starting, they were then rewarded with sunny skies and perfect light. At this point we were standing in the parking lot of The Valley Inn. Thank goodness you'd never know there were cars all around them in these photos.
Love Dan's smile here. They were both ready to get into their reception and party.
Randi's sister and maid of honor Ashley gave a tear jerker of a toast.
So Randi and Dan decided to add some humor to the night with their cake cutting. :-)
Speaking of cake, I found this little beauty laying under the cake table. There were so many cute kids that I could have done a whole blog of just them!
The first dance.
And the parent dances. These were hands down some of my favorite moments. There was laughter...
And tears...the woman watching on the right is Randi's Mom, Rosie.
Just when I thought there was no way that Dan's mother-son dance could be as emotional as Randi's father-daughter dance....it was!
My camera was plastered to my face so I could hide my big crocodile tears.
Then it was time for the bouquet toss -- I think Randi secretly aimed for Ashley.
And everyone danced the night away on the dance floor.
Randi and Dan, thank you and your wonderful families and friends for being so much fun to work with! We are so thankful that we were able to photograph your big day, and we hope you like the little preview of photos. We are so happy that you found each other, and we wish you all the best as you start your life together as husband and wife. Congratulations again! Love, Kris & Scott
On Saturday May 9th, Scott and I photographed Katie and Jeff's wedding. The ceremony took place at Keithan Gardens in Sunbury (and what a perfect day it was for an outdoor ceremony!), and the reception followed at The Elks Lodge in Danville.
I first met with Katie and Jeff last fall, and they said they were looking for photographers who would "capture the moment". I remember thinking to myself, well, we're the perfect match. I love doing portraits, but more than that, I love (LOVE!) stopping moments in time with my camera. Weddings are usually a big blur, and there are so many perfect moments that the bride and groom probably wouldn't even remembering happening if they weren't documented in a photograph.
We started the day at Katie and Jeff's home, where the girls were having fun getting ready and finishing Katie's hair.
Her dress was absolutely stunning -- just wait til you see her in it!
Onto the outdoor ceremony at Keithan Gardens. There were lots of smiles and laughter...
Some happy tears...
And moments of pure joy. Totally totally perfect. Scott caught this image just after they were introduced as husband and wife.
Then it was time for portraits.
Their wedding party was awesome, and the two little ring bearers were adorable!
See what I mean about the dress! Katie, you are stunning!
Love it! You guys are so fabulous, and you definitely knew what you were doing when you picked 5/9 as a wedding date! I love how the tunnel of azaleas turned out in the photos! (And Jeff, I photoshopped all the pollen off your jacket - haha!)
I can already see a two-page panorama in their wedding album.
Onto the reception! Everyone was ready to party.
Seconds after being introduced, I caught one of those somewhat "lucky" shots. Jeff and Katie were totally glowing, but what makes this photo is the lens flare created by someone's flash going off, and of course the faces of their wedding party in the background.
After the introductions, there was a hilarious toast by Jeff's brother and best man...
And then it was time for the first dance.
Totally adorable! Katie has the best smile!
We floated around during dinner and took pictures that I'm sure no one even knew we were taking. ;-)
Then the dancing began, and their guests were giving us a lot of great photo ops!
And of course so were the newlyweds.
I could have picked a bunch of shots of the two of them to blog -- there are so many that they are going to love!
Katie and Jeff, thank you for asking us to photograph your wedding, and for being so fun to work with! We hope you like this little preview as much as we do, and we can't wait for you to see the rest -- I wanted to blog them ALL! Congratulations again, and we wish you all the happiness in the world! With love and appreciation ~Kris & Scott
On Saturday May 2nd, Scott and I photographed an awesome wedding for an awesome couple. Kindle and Jerry live just minutes from Manhattan, but they got married right here in Central PA since this is where Jerry's family lives. The wedding was held at Sharon Lutheran Church in Selinsgrove, and the reception was at Spyglass Ridge Winery in Sunbury. The whole day was perfect -- we even lucked out with gorgeous weather despite there being rain in the forecast. Okay, onto some photos!
I started the day with some candid getting ready shots of Kindle and all the girls at their hotel. Here Kindle's Mom is putting on her necklace, which she made for Kindle along with her veil. That's serious talent!
And then it was time for a bunch of pre-ceremony portraits. I normally don't have the space to show any of these, but I couldn't resist this one of Kindle and her matron of honor. Kindle and all her expressions are just darling!
A quick glimpse into the ceremony...Scott got this shot through one of the doors of the sanctuary.
Love this one! I think Kindle is winking at her future in-laws.
After the ceremony, we headed to the winery for portraits.
And Kindle and Jerry were up for anything. This is a sort of "behind the scenes" shot, but I had to post it because it makes me smile. Kindle (and her cool bridesmaids) were willing to jump over ditches and walk through soggy fields to get to the spot we wanted to do pictures in.
Which was here, with the pond and mountains.
One of my favorites.
A modern way to show off the bouquet...
And the rings.
Of course I had to show a close up of the rings, because Jerry got Kindle a beautiful and rare blue diamond.
Then it was time for Kindle and Jerry to join the party...
Upon heading inside, we got special permission to go into the room with the stainless steel wine vats, so we HAD to do just one more photo...(which really means like five more)...but Kindle and Jerry didn't seem to mind.
Their guests were enjoying quite the cocktail hour...
And we had fun capturing all the different conversations and laughter. Here Jerry's parents are laughing with the best man.
The first dance.
These two were giving us so much to work with! ;-)
Love this moment between Kindle and her Dad. Even though there weren't formal parent dances, I'm so happy that there was an impromptu one because we got so many great shots.
And then it was time for everyone to tear up the dance floor.
Kindle and Jerry, thank you and congratulations again! We hope you had a fabulous honeymoon in Aruba, and we hope these pictures are a good welcome home present! We had so much fun photographing your wedding. Thank you for asking us to be there to preserve all the memories! Hugs! ~Kris & Scott
