Welcome to kristoff photography!

An Iowa Based, rural life and equine photographer


Welcome to my photography world! I'm thrilled to have you here. I'm Emilie, a passionate visual storyteller dedicated to capturing the essence and beauty of the Midwest through my lens. Born and raised in the heart of the Midwest, I've always had a deep appreciation for the rugged landscapes, charming small towns, and the resilient spirit of the people who call this region home. From the rolling fields to the serene lakeshores, I believe every corner of the Midwest holds a unique beauty.


In addition to my love for photography, I have a special connection with horses and agriculture. Having owned and ridden for years, I understand the bond between horse and rider intimately. It's this bond that I strive to capture in my images – the unspoken connection, the shared trust, and the sheer joy of being in harmony with these magnificent animals. Beyond horses, my portfolio encompasses a wide range of subjects, from breathtaking landscapes to intimate portraits.
