I'm Amber Kirchner. I was born in Arizona and spent much of my youth exploring the wonders of this state. In 2014, I married my best friend and high school sweetheart, Josh. We share our home and cuddles with our two herding dogs (Stormy and Fawkes) and our cat (Bella).
Harry Potter rules my life. I was officially sorted into Hufflepuff by Pottermore and feel right at home. My house has a cupboard under the stairs that is bursting with Harry Potter memorabilia. My husband and I love the series so much that it was the theme of our wedding and our honeymoon was spent drinking Butterbeer at the Wizarding World in Orlando. If you ever want to get me talking for hours, bring up
I love spending time in the outdoors camping and hiking. During the summer my husband and I spend our weekends escaping the heat and looking for animals up north. Sasquatch is out there, but not the Finding Bigfoot kind.
I knew then I wanted to be part of the solution. I no longer wanted to just take photographs documenting my own life; I wanted to embrace couples who march to the beat of their own drum and guide them through the wedding photography process.
Because weddings are about the couple getting married. And everyone deserves the right to feel comfortable being themselves on their wedding day.
Getting to know my couples and guiding them through the process is how I create images that not only capture the wedding day but the couples unique love story.
I capture couples’ unique love stories in the great outdoors by helping couples to feel comfortable being themselves and showing genuine emotion on their wedding day.
My journey began when I was planning my own wedding. Two things stood out to me during this process. 1. When searching for vendors, I was concerned that many of them would be uncomfortable with of our Harry Potter themed wedding, our tattoos, and the list goes on. 2. I felt grooms were often treated as another object at the wedding, like flowers or the cake. This was disheartening as my husband is my best friend and was just as important as I was to the wedding day.
