We planned Emily and DJ’s Morro Bay engagement session since it is a meaningful place to both of them and a special part of their love story.

I'm Kirsten

Filled by Jesus, family and creativity, I spend my days capturing the memories we want to remember for a lifetime. Your story is one-of-a-kind and full of love. It's my passion to help you see the beauty in every moment, from engagements and weddings to babies and anniversaries.

I believe in honest moments, sleeping in on Sundays, and quality time with the ones we love; in images that remind us there is joy in the small things. I believe in gallery walls that remind you of your "why" every day you look at those moments in print. When I pick up my camera, I strive to create timeless and emotional images that tell a story and showcase natural beauty.
