Once you submit the contact form below, I’ll be in touch within 72 business hours. I'll send you a pricing guide, answer any questions you might have, & then we can plan a call or zoom meeting if you'd like. I can't wait to document your love story! :)

I will edit out anything that would go away within a few days (blemishes, small bruises, etc.) I do NOT manipulate bodies, change clothing colors, get rid of tummies etc. You’re beautiful the way you are. 🤍
I like to describe my work as warm, inspired by 35mm film, & story-telling. I edit true to color with some added warmth & grain & I like to focus on capturing people in the moment rather than faking the moment. My aim is to document every important detail so that your album tells your entire wedding day story from getting ready to your last dance.
While elopements have stolen my heart, I do photograph weddings as well.
I promise you that every couple you see on this website felt exactly the same! I like to get to know my couples better so that it’s less weird when we finally meet. I have plenty of prompts to get y’all laughing, cuddling & feeling comfortable in no time.
First off, just know that this has yet to happen. But if something that’s out of my control happens (illness, death, act of God, etc,) I will communicate with you ASAP & do my best to find a suitable replacement. This is another reason why it's a great idea to add a 2nd photographer for larger/longer weddings. If I’m unable to make it, my 2nd can take over & I will do my best to find a new 2nd. After the wedding I will still edit your photos so you won’t even be able to tell I didn’t take them. If your package did not include a 2nd photographer & I’m unable to find a suitable replacement, you will receive a full refund.
For engagement sessions you’ll receive a sneak peek within 24 hours & the rest within 4 weeks.
For weddings & elopements you’ll receive a sneak peek within 72 hours and the full gallery within 8 weeks. Although 90% of the time I deliver well before the deadline. :)
Never. That would be like your cake decorator giving you a blank cake and telling you to decorate it yourself. 😬
While it’s entirely possible for me to photograph a wedding by myself, I prefer having a 2nd for weddings over 50 guests, weddings where you & your partner are getting ready at separate locations & if you plan on doing the bulk of your photos during cocktail hour.
The reason is because it’s like having two of me! The day runs smoother since I’m not having to be in two places at once. It also adds a second perspective to your day.
I don’t promise a specific amount because every wedding is different! A good estimate though would be about 30-60 photos per hour. But don’t worry, if it’s a good shot, you’ll get it! I only get rid of photos that are unintentionally blurry, ones where someone is blinking, or if it’s almost exactly the same as another one.
No, but I highly recommend it! You’ll get to experience my shooting style before the big day so that you know exactly what to expect. Most of my wedding & elopement packages include an engagement session for this reason.
It depends! All of my wedding & elopement packages include all of my travel. No hidden fees there. Couples & engagement sessions include some travel based off of the average distance I’ve had to drive in the past. So most likely you’re covered!
For local weddings & half day or longer elopements your $1800 non-refundable retainer is required to book. Travel weddings & elopements require a $3600 non-refundable retainer so that I can block off your date as well as book my accommodations. The rest is due 1 month before your big day. Payments can be made however frequently you need but the plan must be decided at the time of booking.
For engagement sessions the $400 non-refundable retainer is required to book. The rest is due 1 week before the session.

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!"
