Planning a wedding is a daunting task. With so many options and opinions, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed—that Vegas wedding chapel is looking better and better as you comb through thousands of Zola vendors! You know you want to have a meaningful ceremony surrounded by family and friends and to throw the party of the century after. And you want a photographer who can capture each moment exactly as you lived it, beautiful and bursting with joy.

Hiiii, I’m Kyrsten! 

With over 150 weddings under my belt, I’m an expert veil fluffer, flyaway hair tamer, and boutonniere pinner.

Most importantly, I’ve captured some of the most heartfelt and joyful moments between couples. I make sure to capture the photos you want while also giving you the space to celebrate with your community. Put simply: I’m the first one there in the morning and the last one to evacuate the dance floor at the end of the night.

Expertly positioned us to get our best angles no matter what!

Working with Kyrsten was an absolute pleasure!! She made the whole photo shoot stress-free and had us laughing non-stop. She expertly positioned us to get our best angles no matter what! Even if it meant her laying on the ground in an awkward position to get the best angle. No matter the location, she was always inspired by both us as a couple and our surroundings.                                                                                                
                                                           Kyrsten is by far the best photographer you could ask for and we have highly recommended her to friends and family and plan on using her again!

             couple or number to her, you become a lifelong friend.

                              She not only creates beautiful memories for us
       to keep for a lifetime but she was my go-to person whenever I
needed something during the entire wedding planning process.

We can’t thank her enough or put into words how much she means to us


       She not only is an amazing photographer, but she was also there for me every time I needed anything on my big day! My husband and I feel so lucky that Kyrsten was such a big part of our day and now, a friend for life! And to top it all off, her photography is stunning!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             If you're looking for a photographer that is passionate about what they do, feels like a friend, creates magical photos, and wants the best for you as a couple I highly recommend Kyrsten!

Kyrsten is a god send! My wedding wouldn’t have been complete without
her.                                                                                                                         

                                                               She is truly a talented artist
 and it clearly shows in her photos and her work ethic. Kyrsten will
          hold a very special place in our hearts forever.                                                               

She makes the whole experience fun and romantic.

Kyrsten did our engagement photos and our wedding photos, and I could not be happier that we picked her.                        


      She works hard to get the perfect shot and makes the whole experience fun and romantic.  Kyrsten is a fabulous photographer and a genuinely sweet friend. She’s bold, creative, considerate, efficient, fair, and professional. I would recommend her services to anyone for any occasion, especially a wedding or engagement.

                                                                             She is not only a true, knowledgeable, professional, but she is also a calming presence on a day that can/will otherwise be  incredibly hectic.                                                                                                                         

Her experience with weddings truly showed. You can tell how much she loves it!

We had to cancel our destination wedding due to covid and my original photographer was booked for our new date. So, I scrambled to find a new one, and found Kyrsten and by some crazy chance she was available on our new day! I wouldn't recommend waiting though, because I'm pretty sure we snatched up one of her last few available days of 2020 thank God! She had SOLID communication from beginning to end. She literally made the process so much easier and so much fun! I also booked a second shooter through her and I wdefinitely recommend that as well.                                                                  

From the lighting, poses, editing, everything! We are so glad we chose Kyrsten for our day!!!
