Kurstin Roe never imagined he would EVER become a wedding photographer. While growing up his list of potential careers included being a professional hockey player, a sports agent, a bounty hunter, a stunt double or a painter. In fact he never even picked up a camera until he got out of high school, and even then he used it "for fun." While attending college to earn a bachelor of arts degree with an emphasis in painting, Kurstin realized that he had a long journey ahead of him if he wanted to become a full-time artist. This triggered Kurstin to explore other areas of art, primarily photography.

In 2001 Kurstin decided to attend a photography school in Massachusetts to pursue a career in an art he was now passionate about. After school Kurstin back home to Washington, DC. In 2004, at the age of 24, Kurstin signed on with an photo agency to direct the photography and imaging for President Bush's re-election campaign. In the months leading up to the election Kurstin visited virtually every major city in the United States photographing President Bush, the First Lady and the Vice President. Kurstin continued to work closely with the White House until the end of 2006, constantly under pressure to produce outstanding images in the most demanding of situations. It wasn't until the fall of that year when he ran into a wedding photographer who inspired him to leave the politics behind and give wedding photography a try. After just 1 wedding Kurstin was hooked, he had the bug. There was something appealing about not traveling 200 days a year under constant security, photographing the same person day in and day out, constantly waiting for "the" precise photo moment from some "undiscovered" angle within 20 feet of the most powerful men on earth. Not to mention that Air Force One doesn't give frequent flier miles!

Kurstin's first impression of wedding photography was not how he had imagined it, it wasn't sappy, cheesy or traditional in any way. Sure there are those people who still love to pose every portrait and contort people into (un)natural positions, but that's just not his cup of tea. To Kurstin, weddings are the pinnacle of emotion, laughter, happiness, passion and awesomeness. He gets goosebumps at almost every wedding he shoots (seriously), that's how much each couple inspires him to create. He also loves the challenge and pressure of getting it "right" the first time, something his documentary experiences taught him. By combining his love of art and documentary style, Kurstin has been able to push his art in ways he never would've dreamed possible.

Kurstin still lives in Washington, DC with his wife. He volunteers his time with the Alzheimers Association, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and The Hole in the Wall Gang. He is available everywhere. Read less

I would highly recommend using Kurstin for your wedding or other major life event. I was just married last week at the Fairmont Hotel. Kristen was recommended to us by the Fairmont Hotel and we also read his reviews on Wedding Wire. One of the main reasons we chose Kurstin was his calm demeanor and professionalism. We had a blast with him doing our engagement photos down at the National Portrait Gallery (it was a rainy day so we went indoors). He made us feel very much at ease in front of the camera and he came up with some very creative shots. The photos turned out amazing!!!! Kristin spent a lot of time with us prior to the wedding and never minded all our questions. At the wedding he managed to keep me calm and it was wonderful having him document the entire day. We can't wait to see the photos.

Kurstin has to be DC's most amazing and elite photographers. His photos are incredible pieces of art. He is punctual, tactful, friendly and incredibly talented. The album choices he has are out of this world elegant and durable. He just did my engagement shoot and my biggest problem with his photos was picking which pictures I wanted to print cause they are all incredible, we cant wait to see our wedding pictures. If you have a taste for top photography you will love him.

This past February at the Four Seasons in Washington DC, our daughter was married. Kelley Cannon the most exceptional event planner introduced us to Kurstin Roe our wedding photographer. Imagine all of the planning, all of the excitment and all of the memories and if you did not capture them properly well they are just memories. Kurstin Roe is imaginative, thoughtful, professional and able to be standing at just the right place at just the right time. His lighting and angles are poetic and his pictures speak a thousand words. These are forever moments that are captured forever. This is the one aspect of a wedding where you need artistry, personality, creativity, a great eye and still be able to document your special day with style. Kurstin Roe is outstanding!

If you're looking for photos that will stand the test of time, look no further than Kurstin Roe. He took the time to sit down with us, ask questions, get to know us, our style and what our priorities are. Our photographs are truly a reflection of our conversations; Kurstin really understood us and was able to bring out the best of us in the photography on our big day.
Kurstin beautifully captured the emotions of wedding in stunning images that are moving, gorgeous and transport you back to the day. The photographs truly reflect our wedding - each emotion, dance move and bit of magic emerges through Kurstin's artistry.
One of my favorite things about Kurstin was his way of making everyone feel at ease, which is why our photography from the day turned out wonderfully. I couldn't be happier with our decision to work with Kurstin. You only have one chance in like to capture these moments from your wedding and he found a way to do it all. My only issue is figuring out how to narrow down all of the photos I love into an album. His work is amazing and he's truly gifted.

Working with Kurstin was a lot of fun. I highly recommend him for engagement and wedding photography. His photo compositions are artistic and playful, he makes his subjects feel comfortable, and he's very personable and easy to work with (no deer in the headlights shots here!)
Kurstin did our engagement and wedding photos. We loved our engagement photos and haven't picked any yet because we want ALL of them. I love how each photo tells a bit of the story. I can't wait to see my wedding photos. Thank you Kurstin!

After only a brief glance through Kurstin’s portfolio, we knew he was the perfect wedding photographer for us. His experience, professionalism, and artistic niche allowed him to capture the formality of the event, but also the relaxed, fun atmosphere that our summer wedding was all about. We both felt we could be ourselves in front of the camera and in front of Kurstin, and none of our pictures felt or look posed. The shots of our first look, our wedding party, our family, and friends are all very natural looking and there’s not a bad picture in the entire set. He captured some emotional and endearing shots, and some hilarious and memorable shots of our guests hamming it up on the dance floor, which is exactly what we wanted to remember about our special day. He also has the natural ability to make any venue look amazing. He played off of the natural landscape at our outdoor venue and really made my idea of a garden wedding come to life. A week or two before the wedding, Kurstin sat down with us to make sure he knew exactly what our vision was and he blew our expectations out of the water. We are so grateful for his attention to detail, patience, and willingness to work outdoors on a HOT July evening! We may not remember everything that happened the day of our wedding, but our photos captured the essence of the night, and will help us relive the day for years and years. We can’t thank you enough Kurstin!

Having Kurstin as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions my husband and I made. We both wanted to ensure we had a photographer who was able to capture our personalities, artfully document the day, and make us feel comfortable in front of a camera. Kurstin exceeded all of our expectations. I'm a bit obsessed with our wedding photos and months later I still find myself looking back at them, remembering the day as if it was yesterday. Besides having an incredible artistic eye, Kurstin is very professional and a joy to work with. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends (I actually already have).

Kurstin was everything we could have asked for in a photographer! When loved how he was able to capture the small, candid moments between the two of us during both our engagement session and on the wedding day. The way that he uses natural light really does incredible things for the photos, and he was the perfect mix of professional and friendly throughout the whole process. We highly recommend him!

My wife and I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Kurstin Roe and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anybody that is currently engaged and looking for a true professional. He has an uncanny ability to you at ease and his talent for the job was reflected in our photographs. The emotions he was able to capture in our photographs brings back such great memories of our wedding day. People often worry about this aspect of the wedding process but I can assure you that if you hire Kurstin. You will not be disappointed.
