Yo Friends! I'm Kristen of Kristen Mittlestedt Photography. I graduated with my BFA in Fine Art Photography, from Ball State University in 2012. Come May 2018, I'll have been in business as a wedding and fine art photographer for 7 years. I've been experimenting and exploring photography most of my life, and could not be more excited to have it as a career!

What are my goals here? Simple. I want to inspire you! I want to light the spark of creativity and teach you how to burn the whole place down.



I'm a bit of an odd ball, so along with tutorials and behind the scenes videos, you'll be getting some killer commentary and dance moves. While keeping things funky fresh, I'll educate you in my style. It may not always be the technically correct way, but it's how I roll.

Where are my donations going?
Truth be told, I've been in a massive mental slump the past 2 years, and haven't created as much art as I've wanted. I became a business machine and cranked out edits for clients at a mundane and methodical pace, only occasionally doing personal work. I've finally dived back into photography as art, my true passion. Unfortunately, creating personal shoots cost money. Your money is going to support my creations, and ultimately more content here for you to learn and enjoy!
Tiers
The Vibe Bringers
$5 or more per month
This is the, “Hey, I think you're the bomb” tier. You're just showing some love, and in return you'll have access to quick edit videos, where you can watch the magic happen in a fast paced video (Note these are not tutorials). You will also gain access to the patron only feed! 
Stellar Vibes
$15 or more per month
All The Vibe Bringer benefits, plus you'll gain access to tutorials! Curious about image stitching, or how to fashion edit skin? This is your jam.

Have specific questions about anything photography related? Ask me anything, and get a detailed answer. I'm taking tutorial requests!
Interactive Vibes
$30 or more per month
Along with the above perks, you can send in one of your RAW photos for me to edit in a tutorial video! (1 per month)
Styled Vibes
$50 or more per month
You get everything above, but so much more. Are you interested in styled shoots? You'll have access to information on how I plan, find vendors, get inspired, and shoot! I'll supply behind the scenes videos of day-of set up, and of some posing and shooting. Not only will you get to see tutorial editing videos from the styled shoot, you will have access to the full styled shoot gallery.

I shoot a styled shoot every few months (sometimes multiples in a month), so you will have access to all past styled shoots as well! The more patrons who sign up for this tier, the more often I will plan styled shoots. The next big styled shoot is set for April 7th, 2018.
Wedding Vibes
$100 or more per month
Wedding Photographer? This is for you! In addition to all the other juicy benefits in lower tiers, we are going to vibe everything wedding! You'll have access to information on how I create timelines for the wedding day, the equipment I use, and general workflow for before, during, and after the wedding day.

I'll also create behind the scenes videos at REAL weddings, to give you a glimpse into my world. You'll have access to wedding editing tutorials and a full wedding gallery. Along with access to past wedding galleries, a new gallery will be added monthly.
Killer Wedding Vibes
$500 or more per month
Want a more hands on approach to the Wedding Vibes tier? With this tier, you are invited to come and second shoot a wedding along side me!  Ask questions and receive hands on instruction at a REAL wedding. Such as setting up detail shots, posing the couple, off camera lighting, etc!

NOTE: Most weddings take place in Indiana

After the big day, we will edit up to 10 images together. You also receive a detailed portfolio review, with helpful critique! (The critique does not have to be done in person if you are shy!)
Goals
2 of 250 patrons
Once we hit 250 patrons, I will do a 2 hour live editing stream that will be open to all tiers!
