Missoula Photographer Kristine Paulsen of Kristine Paulsen Photography

I'm Kristine.


I'm a Missoula-based wedding and portrait photographer in Montana. I've got two little birds named Flash and Mozart. Mozart loves to sing (he digs the classical repertoire) and Flash likes to talk (one of his favorite words is "Peekaboo!"). I love to cook and really love to bake (cakes and pies make my sweet tooth happy), I find getting dirty in my garden a form of pure joy, and one of my favorite pastimes is walking downtown to enjoy some good eats and tasty brews with friends.


I was born in Montana, spent a wonderful childhood in the Midwest, completed my undergraduate degree in English at Carleton College (but fell in love with photography there), moved back to Montana to receive my master's degree in photojournalism from the University of Montana, worked in Seattle at the amazing Seattle Post-Intelligencer (while it was still a printed paper), and when I landed back here in Missoula, it was clear I'd found home. I love being able to explore all the beauty Montana has to offer, and often venture out on photo expeditions just to have fun exploring with my camera. I also occasionally teach photojournalism classes at the U of M as an adjunct professor and delight in watching students' excitement grow. People are so interesting to me, and I find it completely rewarding to meet and photograph people who enthusiastically love their lives. I enjoy photographing weddings and portraits because I adore people in all their uniqueness, and I find it fascinating to be able to tell people's stories. Would you like to know more? Get to know me a little better over here!

I'd love to hear from you too!


Getting started in business can sometimes seem like an overwhelming challenge, so I've set up one-on-one mentoring sessions specifically for photographers that address the myriad things it takes to make your photography successful, and answers a variety of questions you may have.


You can also find photo tips, the gear I like, etc. here. Take a peek at the "for photographers" page to learn more!
