ABOUT

KRISTEN & GOLDEN BIRCH PHOTO

GOLDEN BIRCH

Natural, fun, and intimate. My goal in photographing you–your life, your wedding, your experiences–is to capture your story. I strive to photograph people in their element and at their most honest. I love having fun on a shoot and I want to make sure you have fun too! I will probably make a few dumb jokes along the way and I’d love to grab a coffee/drink before the party (photoshoot) begins.

The most amazing thing about people is that we are all so unique and amazing. Everyone has a different story I want to share in your photographs. I love being present and will work my hardest to make you comfortable, secure, and ready to just enjoy the entire experience! I love going on adventures and catching you candidly, when you pretend I’m not around and are just spending time with each other.

I feel honoured and excited to share these moments and memories with you!

Golden Birch Photography is currently based out of Toronto, ON, but willing to go everywhere and anywhere!

The name: My favorite thing about autumn growing up in Northern Alberta were the forests and the multitude of colors: orange, yellow, and red, carpeting the countryside. Birch trees are some of the most lovely: a pleasant surprise, a burst of personality, and delightful to the eyes!
