Hi, we're the Smiths!
We're business partners, friends, and most importantly - we're lovers.
Owner | Creative Lead
Austin is THE human behind Crooked Window Photography. He birthed the biz' back in 2019 with a goal to spread love through creativity. He's the lead photographer and lead videographer.
He graduated from California College of the Arts in 2017. Austin's time in art school equipped him with the skills to create beautiful work and also brought some awesome experiences his way. He's created many artistic things - from intricate blown glass and challenging metal works to delicate drawings and large-scale woodworking projects (such as our greenhouse!).
Prior to his time in art school, he served as a medic in the US Army.
Some of Austin's favorite hobbies are: writing, traveling, diving, listening to music (especially live music), jiu-jitsu, and all of the creative things.
Fun fact about Austin: He is 1 of 9 siblings.
Co-Owner | Communications Manager
Kris is the human behind the scenes of Crooked Window. She manages communications, keeps up with the books, provides support, and serves as Austin's muse and assistant.
She graduated from Georgia Southwestern State with a degree in Business Management. Her "day job" is in Financial Technology and she also owns and operates Curated by Crooked Window, her wedding planning/coordination company.
Kris spends much of her downtime doing things that bring her joy, such as: reading, doing yoga, being with friends, exploring North Carolina, and eating good food.
Fun fact about Kris: She spent the first 18 years of her life living in the town that she was born in, in the house that her mother grew up in.
