About Me


As a wedding photographer and New Yorker for over 10 years, Kristy May brings together two things she loves when she photographs elopements in New York City. She started her career in her home state of Louisiana as a photojournalist and eventually made her way to NYC to get a master's degree in digital photography at The School of Visual Arts.

When not taking photos, Kristy loves to cook, refinish vintage furniture and make art with her creative 5 year old daughter Josephine. She lives with her husband Ryan, daughter and cat Dexter in the NYC area.
