Your wedding day is about you and your partner celebrating your love with your closest family and friends. When you look back on your wedding photos you both deserve to remember all the special moments you had throughout the day. That is why I spend equal time photographing both my brides and grooms for every wedding I photograph.
I'm Amber Kirchner, a Phoenix, Arizona based wedding photographer for couples who want fun and authentic wedding photography.
I believe in marrying your best friend, laughing until you cry, and capturing the genuine moments of your wedding day. I am there to be a partner in the planning process, get pumped about the personal touches of your day, and help you feel relaxed and natural in front of the camera.
I was a tattooed bride planning a Harry Potter inspired wedding while a celebrity wedding planner was literally covering bride’s tattoos on national TV. I quickly realized my biggest struggle in finding a wedding photographer I trusted was that I did not see myself (nor my husband) in any of the photographs on their websites.
That is when I decided I would be a catalyst for change in the wedding industry. I would be a wedding photographer that accepted and celebrated everyone for who they are.
I set out to create a wedding photography business that broke the mold of the traditional wedding photographer. A business that took pride in two things: diversity and equality.
Today, I am honored to photograph rad couples who celebrate not only their love for each other, but their unique personalities and cultures with their weddings.
We met when we were teenagers and I have officially known Josh for more than half of my life! We are truly best friends and love exploring the mountains together, mandatory lazy days, and laughing until we cry.
We toasted with butter beer, had custom wands for our bridal party, and ate Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans. Our honeymoon was spend drinking Butterbeer at the Wizarding World.
I am always down for a hike whether that is for backpacking trip or an engagement session. When I am not in the mountains, I can often be found barefoot in my backyard.
These two keep our daily lives interesting, that's for sure! When I am not photographing amazing couples, I an usually cuddling with our two herding dogs (Stormy and Fawkes) or sharing my ice cream with our cat (Bella).
We take an annual trip to Disneyland every year. Usually around December (as you can see by my Christmas sweater). And, yes, I have officially met Mary Poppins and Bert. Eat your heart out.
