"There just aren't enough words to possibly describe how amazing each and every photo that Kirsten captures is. KIRSTEN CREATES MAGIC. She has captured the most special moments of my family's life. I would never hesitate to recommend her to anyone who wants a true professional to create a documentary photography experience."


"We are IN LOVE with our elopement photos! Kirsten did a wonderful job capturing the moments that were so special to us. She was also very helpful in working with us to find the best spot to elope and kept it very low stress and candid. HIGHLY RECOMMEND"

MY PHOTOGRAPHY HIGHTLIGHTS LOTS OF REAL, CANDID, INCLUSIVE WEDDING MOMENTS, ARTISTIC PORTRAITS, AND FUN HUMANS IN LOVE so grab your yummiest of beverages and scroll below to see more of what I offer through my lens.

“I can’t even begin to explain how amazing Kirsten is! I mean ABOVE and BEYOND!! Of all our vendors Kirsten was the best! She stayed in contact with us throughout the whole wedding planning process. She even helped with things that did not involve photography. I’m so so happy we found her.”


“Kirsten was born to be a photographer. She has that eye to see things that the average person doesn’t. And to top it off she makes you feel like an old friend! She automatically bonds with you and is so genuine. Just an incredible human!”

I'm a creative wedding photographer based in Maryland and Deep Creek Lake, but I want to adventure to the location that screams YOU!

I think we draw energy from our surroundings

with my goal to capture the authentic, unique you, it's important that we're in a location that fits your vibe, whether that's a place you've loved visiting for years or a new place you've always wanted to explore.

Once we have the awesome location, we can capture the awesome YOU.


Your photos should do more than help you remember that special time. They should let you relive it.
