If you’re on the search for an engagement or couples photographer in Asheville, NC, then maybe you’ve already heard the term “adventure session.” But what exactly is an adventure session? While it may sound like there’s a lot of hiking involved, that’s not always the case!

You don’t need to be an expert hiker or extremely outdoorsy to book an adventure session with me!

Adventure sessions are just like regular sessions except they’re not in your typical city or park location & are instead somewhere out in nature. You can choose a location that requires no hiking & still get some epic backdrops in your photos. Or, if you do like hikes, you can choose a location that requires one. It’s like a choose your own adventure game!

The best part about adventure sessions is that you get to spend time with the person you love in a beautiful location. With adventure sessions it’s a lot easier to include a fun activity that will make your session completely unique! I’ve had couples roast marshmallows on a campfire, have a cozy picnic & drink hot chocolate, & even stargaze on top of a mountain.

There’s an endless amount of options when it comes to planning your adventure session, & I’m here to help from location ideas to fun activities to do. Let’s make it a day you’ll want to remember forever!

Adventure sessions are perfect for couples who:

  • Don’t just want a bunch of posed photos & instead want candid photos of their adventure together.

  • Value their time together & want their session to feel more like a date than a photo session.

  • Enjoy being outside.

  • Are easy going. The weather changes very quickly in the mountains so there’s always a chance for some rain!

If this sounds like you, then let’s start chatting about how we can plan your perfect day!

"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

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!"
