About Kirstin

Hello

Welcome to Kirstin Burrows Photography.  I believe in connection, for me it all started with the first time that my husband and I saw each other, we connected over a music-stand and wrong notes which began our crazy unique walk together.  We will keep taking this journey together until the walk is a shuffle and it takes longer to complete, but I would not have it any other way with any other person.  

My hearts desire is to capture not only the tender connection that only you know about but the essences of your true love.  I understood what the meaning of true love is from my grandparents, that it was about making the simple things special, like the laugh that can lighten a room that changes the littlest moment into the best.  Marriage is forever no matter how difficult or simple the day is, it is about walking through the day together and falling in love all over again. 

Love is so much more than what is portrayed in movies.  It is meant to fight for one another and build each other up.  It is the struggles between the I do and the happily ever-after that I strive to capture.  For us the struggles are laundry, our beagles, being parents with the highs and lows, worshiping our savior and walking hand in hand down the streets of the happiest place on earth.   

My Story

I am a transplant to Southern California from Washington state where I spent the first 24 years.  I went to college at Seattle Pacific University where I got a degree in music education.  Met my husband while student teaching and was married at our church.  From Washington we moved to Las Vegas where we stayed as teachers for 11 months, then we were called to California.  I decided to take some time off from teaching where I got to do one of my favorite jobs I have had.  I was a cast member at Disneyland.  I worked there as a ride operator and LOVED every minute of it.  In 2010 my husband and I welcomed our sweet little girl Hannah into this world and everything changed!  We have two fur babies, both beagles, who run our house and are very much a part of our family.  

My whole life I have had a camera in my hands but now with Hannah here I wanted to focus on that art form.  I began studying and improving my craft.  I started photographing weddings a little over a year after opening my business and have been in love every since.  I beleive in a connection between client and photographer.  I strive to capture genuine emotion in timeless and romantic images that all my clients would be proud to hang on their walls!

My Philosophy I believe in stolen moments, quiet glances, whispered secrets and ever lasting love. I spend time connecting with my couples to capture images that are one of a kind and just for them. A wedding is so much more than the I do's and kisses it is every little detail the couple has spent moments to make perfect! That is what I strive to capture.
The Experience Working with Kirstin Burrows Photography is very different from most photographers because you aren't just a client, you become part of my family! It starts from the first meeting and never stops. I open my home, family and heart to my clients and enjoy getting to know them and capture a day that is truly unique to just them!
