My name is Kristi Ditmer and I am a wife, mother, and photographer in Topeka, Kansas. I am originally from South East Kansas, but have resided in Topeka since 2000. Specializing in Fine Art Portraiture is my passion. From Maternity to Children of all ages and Seniors, to Engagement and Weddings, to Special Events and Corporate Portraiture. I choose to focus on producing beautiful images that will truly impact lives.
Photography is a passion that I have had most of my life and have been blessed to pursue for the last 15 years! Receiving my first camera when I was a little girl, I took my hobby very seriously and learned to express myself through my camera. Whether I was photographing my surroundings, the children I wanted to remember from Church Camp, the beautiful sites we saw on family vacations, or our animals around the farm, I always aimed to not only capture the moment but to tell a story.
After High School I went to college, I pursued a degree in Communication and a Masters in Speech Communication. I love to interact with people and learn about each individual I come in contact with. I believe that connecting with other people is what allows us to thrive and truly experience life with deeper meaning. I was fortunate enough to take 21 hours of photography in college and to participate in 2 summer internships at Kanakuk Kamps in Branson, Missouri. What began as one of my favorite pastimes, soon turned into a passion I hoped to someday share with others.
While in college, I met my amazing and supportive husband, Stephen Ditmer. We wed in 2004 and began our family in 2006. Though I have always had a desire to work hard and have many accomplishments under my belt, being a Mommy is the one thing in life that has captivated me. In 2007, with the support of my amazing husband, we decided to pursue photography full time and launched Ditmer Photography. We have been so blessed by our clients over the years and hope that we are a blessing to them as well!
Gratefully, portrait photography lets me spend time with wonderful people! My life is so full, and I am immensely blessed! I have so much to be thankful for and I thank God for His blessings daily. I have chosen to grow deeper and really personalize this business. I want profound relationships with my clients and my community.
I look forward to getting to know you and celebrating the moments of life with you!
Thank you for considering Ditmer Photography for all of your Professional Photography needs!
