About Me: My goal is for my clients to have fun, feel like friends and to love their images. I am a documentary wedding and portrait photographer based out of Baltimore, MD.

My Approach: I love all things fresh, modern and spontaneous and try to approach every shoot with that mindset. I am a detail oriented person and love all the little pieces that make up a wedding, from the little embellishments to the shared glances I am there to soak it all up. I go into every wedding with a piece of who each couple is and thoughtfullly put together a beatiful story that will be told many years to come. At the end of the day all you have are memories and photographs to relive one of the most special days of your life. I love getting to know my clients and giving each couple a very personalized experience. Since the age of 16 I have been working in the darkroom and am als professionally trained (BFA)photographer from Savannah College of Art and Design.

I am happy to custom tailor collections to fit your photography needs. Please contact me with any questions or to set up an appointment. Read less

Kirsten did a FANTASTIC job on both my engagement and wedding photography. The photos are all beautiful, creative, artistic, lots of candid shots. My husband and I look natural and completely comfortable in the photos, which is no small feat - we's not the most photogenic and it's hard to get a genuine smile from my husband on film. But Kirsten is so friendly and sweet that it's impossible not to feel comfortable during your photo shoot (SO important!)

She's also very professional and very responsive over email and phone. She makes the process of getting and sharing all your photos and creating your photo album really easy with the online gallery. Our photos came on a cute USB in an adorable package with some goodies (salted caramels).

Her pricing is expensive, but seemed pretty much on par with the top notch wedding photographers out there. When I was first looking for our photographer, I found a couple who were less expensive but their portfolios really didn't compare to Kirsten's.

Last, I did go with the package that included a second photographer and I would highly recommend it. Kirsten's second photographer (Wendy) also did a great job and I don't think we would have gotten as many good photos of the groomsmen (Wendy shot their getting ready photos/portraits separately while Kirsten did me and all the bridesmaids), or of the reception without her. There's only so much one photographer can do!

Kirsten did an amazing job. She is so sweet and professional. She took into consideration all of the photos that I wanted. I loved that she had a second photographer. That allowed an extra person to focus on how everyone in the picture was posing and how our clothes were laying. That is stuff that you don't think about, but is needed to have nice photos. I would hire her again and recommend her to anyone I know getting married. Thanks so much Kirsten!! I can't wait to see our photos :)

We could not have been happier with Kirsten as our photographer. She is personable, kind, fun and her services are amazing and very reasonably priced. She got a variety of amazing photos for our weddings which is just what we were looking for - close ups, wide shots, creative, formal, artsy... really all great! We told her what type of 'story' we wanted our wedding photos to tell and she 100% delivered.

Kirsten photographed my wedding in early August. She was absolutely fabulous! Not only was she professional and reliable, she was very personable and fun to be around. She did a great job of keeping everyone organized and on schedule. Not only did she take awesome pictures the whole day, she even had bobby pins and helped fix my hair when it started to fall out at my reception! She's awesome! Book her today!

I don't even know where to begin with this review. Kirsten is absolutely amazing. From our engagement pictures to our wedding photos she was so easy to work with and captured beautiful pictures, including all of the details of our wedding. She was so helpful with figuring out where exactly to go for our engagement pictures and the best time of day for it as well. We were so surprised with our pictures, especially considering my husband hates pictures, she was able to get so many great ones.

I was full of nerves and energy on our wedding day, but Kirsten helped me feel relaxed and even kept my nerves down a few days after the wedding. She was able to help make a manageable timeline for pictures on the wedding day and helped us stay on schedule without any stress. She met ALL of our must have pictures and got so many more that I would have forgotten. Her style is versatile and gorgeous. I would 100% recommend Kirsten to anyone.

I loved working with Kirsten for my engagement and wedding pictures. She really captured both events exactly how I envisioned. I don't live in Baltimore so I trusted Kirsten to pick my first look and bridesmaid/family pictures prior to my wedding. She went ahead to scope out the sights and I thought she was spot on with where she picked. I loved my pictures and am extremely happy with my experience with Kirsten.

I wish that a rating of 5+ was an option on here, because like others who have reviewed Kirsten before me, I am having trouble putting into words and quantifying how absolutely incredible Kirsten was to work with. This woman's unparalleled eye for art and composition paired with her friendly and caring demeanor make her a dream vendor. Kirsten was attuned to my dreams for wedding photography throughout the entire process... she really GOT me. Aesthetics are incredibly important to me, and Kirsten understood my style and vision. Additionally, Kirsten was WONDERFUL with dealing with the guests at my wedding and family members during group photos- which trust me, is a task when a wedding is as large as ours was. Throughout the night she was not only snapping photos, but she regularly checked in with me to see how I was doing and to tell me how beautiful the evening was. Kirsten's second photographer Mary was also fantastic. I have shown my pictures off to EVERYONE, and many have commented on the photos looking "magazine worthy." I highly highly recommend Kirsten to anyone who wants not only fabulous photographs, but who wants to laugh while taking them. Kirsten made us feel comfortable and helped capture all of the romantic, silly, and serious moments of the night.
