“I can’t say enough about how happy we are with our photo sessions and photos from Kristina. We’ve had her take are family photos for the past six years and it gets better every time. We have a hard time choosing which photos to use for our holiday cards! We love her use of natural lighting and fun poses, capturing the individual personalities of each family member. She’s fun to work with. I’ve also used Kristina for our company head shots.”  Diana, Saratoga

“Kristina is a wonderful photographer who has a kind heart.  My kids are comfortable with her and give her warm smiles that produce the most beautiful smiles and pictures that I can’t stop showing off.”  Irene, Mountain View

“Kristina a talented photographer in so many ways. Not only are the images she catches perfectly beautiful, the entire experience from start to finish is fun and engaging! Coming from a professional with high standards, Kristina is on mark! She is engaged, responsive and a wonderful woman. Hire her without a doubt.”  Maaliea, Los Gatos

“Kristina is so fun to work with! She is the only person I trust to take my family’s photos!! She has done both our kids’ newborn sessions, my maternity session, kids 1 year sessions, and several family sessions. And we will no doubt continue to use her! We keep going back to her because we are always so impressed by her work! She is very easy to work with and knows how to get smiles from the little ones!”Lisa, Campbell

“Kristina is wonderful to work with. She took head shots for my company’s executive team and the photos turned out beautifully of everyone. She is fun and easy to work with and encouraged us to try a variety of poses to get the best shots possible.”  Lee Ann, Los Gatos

“My Family and I had an absolutely amazing time during our photo session with Kristina. With 2 year old twins, our experience getting our pictures taken has always been challenging…BUT  not this time. Kristina was wonderful with our girls and made them feel comfortable right away. She had a great mix of posed pictures as well as candid pictures of us just being us. In the end we had an amazing selection of photos that captured our family story. We were so happy with every part of our experience and would highly recommend Kristina to any one who is looking to get great quality pictures.”  Lisa, Campbell

I hired Kristina to take head shots for my business website and various social media and professional sites. I hired two photographers prior to Kristina and was not happy with the results. The other photos look airbrushed and the poses looked unnatural. Kristina did a great job making me feel comfortable which showed in the pictures. The end result was numerous excellent shots in a variety of backgrounds. It was hard to pick my favorite. I plan on hiring Kristina for our next family portrait! Alex, Los Gatos

“When our business needed photography work done for our website, Kristina orchestrated a timely, efficient and convenient photo session for our employees.  She made everyone feel at ease, and made the entire session a wonderful experience.  She worked with our website design team to produce all of our required photography in a timely manner and happily provided various electronic versions to accomodate our website needs.  In addition, she took wonderful photos of our office that are featured in our website.  Kristina is a true professional who is a pleasure to work with, as well as an extremely talented and creative photographer.”  Lori-Ann, San Jose

“Kristina is a fabulous photographer. She did a masterful job with my daughter’s senior portraits. She is thoughtful, patient, and professional. Her talent and joy for photography show in every proof. I have many friends who have used her with great success. I highly recommend her!”  Mia, Saratoga

“Kristina immediately made me feel comfortable with her warm smile and relaxing nature. She never made me feel rushed as we wandered around finding the best lighting for each shot. My pictures came out beautifully! I have four pictures that I use all of the time — I like each one so much that I can’t make up my mind which one to use! I would highly recommend Kristina for your professional headshots.”  Michelle, Saratoga

“We’ve had Kristina take our family photos and each of my senior HS children had their senior photos taken by her as well. I’ve been very impressed each time. She’s professional, creative, and gets her subjects to relax and have fun so their personalities shine. We will definitely continue to use Kristina Rust Photography and I would highly recommend others to use her services as well.”  Karen, Saratoga

“Kristina did a fantastic author photo for the cover of my novel and book promotion materials. She is relaxed and flexible–very easy to work with and her turnaround time was fantastic. I’d use Kristina in the future without a doubt.”   Rayme, Palo Alto

“Kristina took my three kids to the nearby park for a photo session and the results were absolutely amazing! She captured their expressions beautifully and I especially love how natural and un-posed my kids looked. She also took a set of office photos for my husband, which turned out great! She is wonderful to work with – warm, engaging and knowledgeable. Very highly recommended!”  Angie, Saratoga
