Be yourself

Most couples fear is that their photos will look too posed and fake and not feel like "them."

I don't believe weddings are "One size fits all." I will give fun and natural directions to intentionally get joyful and authentic reactions and emotions captured. 

From Mom helping you in your dress, to portraits, to cake cutting, you will be able to relax and enjoy your wedding day and know that none of your memories are being missed!  

have fun!

I am OBSESSED with my dogs, all 3 of them! I have 3 dachshunds; Ellie, Link and Odin. They basically chill with me every single day and are helping my husband Todd and I patiently await our little baby boy make his appearance this November! 

I laugh at absolutely anything and having fun is basically my main requirement to taking on any project! If we can laugh and have a good time, count me in! Stress free wedding days is what I hope to create for my couples!!   

Being an Iowa wedding photographer has been on of the best joys of my life!

All Dogs Welcome!


Kirstie was the best wedding photographer we could have asked for! She went above and beyond to get to know us and was super personable. This of course made our engagement shoot and our wedding day photos so fun and comfortable. We would recommend Kirstie to anyone!

Kirstie was the most amazing wedding photographer we could have wished for. She is fantastic about posing so it doesn't feel awkward or forced but results in fantastic amazing photos. She kicked out all the family photos we wanted in 1/4 the designated time so we had plenty of extra goofy shots that are super fun.  She is super communicative, really easy and really fun to work with, and I cannot recommend her enough.
