About Kristin

Smetona Photo specializes in wedding photography and custom portraits in Orange County, Los Angeles, and destinations worldwide!

Hello! I'm Kristin! 

I live in Old Towne Orange with my husband, Dustin. That adorable little boy is our son, Eli, and the sweet girl is our daughter, Emerald. We enjoy walking the Plaza, serving our church, and trying new restaurants. (We are total foodies!) I love traveling, smoothies and Lord of the Rings. A highlight of my career has been photographing an elopement in New Zealand in 2017!

I have been a professional photographer for over 14 years! I have a degree in Journalism with an emphasis in Photography. My style is a combination of fine art and photojournalism. I love capturing real moments between families; whether it be at weddings or at any other milestone.


I truly believe that weddings are an incredibly wonderful occasion. While I love all the flowers, details and dresses, this is not the most important part of a wedding. The heart of a wedding (the forming of a marriage and the joining of two lives) is invisible, I love to capture the outpouring of the marriage. The people and candid emotions are my focus in any wedding I photograph and I promise to make it my priority at yours!
