Capturing moments, not poses.

Traditional posing can be uncomfortable & awkward, so I like to take a different approach. My style is all about candid moments, natural movement, and genuine emotion, making your photos truly one-of-a-kind. I believe in building a personal connection with each couple, so you can trust me to capture your love story in a way that feels comfortable and reflects your personalities & love for one another. Because wedding days are meant to be about celebrating, not just posing for photos.


About me

Meet your Asheville Elopement Photographer

Hey, I'm Kirsten!

When I'm not running around the mountain tops photographing couples in love, you'll find me cuddled up on the couch with my two adorable pups, watering my 30+ house plants, cooking up a storm in the kitchen, trying out a new brewery with my partner & our friends, or spending time on pinterest dreaming up ideas for the cute little a-frame house in the forest I want to have some day.

I truly care about capturing every moment of your special day in an authentic and genuine way. From the sweet small moments to the exciting big moments, I'm here to document your story.

As an ally of the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities, I want you to know that you are not only welcomed here but also celebrated. 🏳️‍🌈🖤

Amanda & Joe

"Kirsten was so sweet and fun to hang out with - it felt like we brought a friend along with us! She captured everything I wanted and gave us the perfect photos for us to remember our special day.
We received a mix of candid photos and portraits.

I thought I would feel awkward taking portraits. but she gave great prompts that made it fun and had us laughing. When I received my photos. I was blown away at how natural we looked and how much of our love was captured in the photos. I am literally obsessed with how our pictures came out!"

Payton & Kristen

"Kirsten produced lovely photos from our very dreamy and memorable mountain photo shoot. We display the engagement photos proudly all around our house. She knows the area well and can suggest areas if you are not.

She's non-judgmental if you're nervous about being in front of a camera and LGBTQ+ friendly! We highly recommend Kirsten to anyone looking to get engaged or elope in the Asheville area."

Caroline & Cameron

"😭😭 These are amazing. Thank you so so much for making this chaotic day look so peaceful and magical. I know we were rushed but you'd never know from these pictures. We couldn't have asked for more! and thank you for getting us our gallery and sneak peaks so quickly!!"

Amythest & Sara

"Kirsten was delightful and really allowed us to be ourselves and enjoy the time together. The photos from this session are warm. intimate. and really showcase the love that my wife and I hold in our relationship. I am forever thankful for that afternoon Kirsten spent with us. if you are considering booking a session. this is a business you want to do it with <3"

Sarah & Alex

"Kirsten was absolutely amazing to work with! While visiting the States on our honeymoon, we arranged to have photos taken to commemorate our elopement, and Kirsten took our vision and ran with it! Kirsten made the the entire experience so easy for us - from helping us plan and pick a venue, to bringing her pop-up tent for a wardrobe change at the top of the mountain.

Kirsten went above and beyond The photos themselves are more beautiful than we could have hoped for. and we are so grateful. Could not recommend Kirsten enough!"
