based in toronto, canada & travels worldwide


Hey! I’m Kristen! I’m a wedding photographer based out of Toronto, ON, Canada

I love traveling and being in new places with a camera
I like growing plants and herbs
I’m a beer drinker and friend of the dance floor
I love reading books til 3 AM 
I went through a stint of making macrame plant hangers and now I own a lot (maybe I’ll make you one)
I love shooting in film, I love the grain of a real photo, and I love snapping instant photos capturing messiness and realness
I love spontaneous road trips and getting lost in new places

& I look forward to photographing your story!

kind words

  • Kristen is AMAZING! She is a natural behind the lens! I heard good things about her from our guests, and I got to see how not only did she make us feel comfortable, she captured so many special moments throughout the day. She is very professional and organized. She kept everything on a timeline, got all our guests organized for pictures, and was a trooper on our second location for our couple pictures!

    If you want absolutely beautiful, natural, and special pictures, and with a great personality and service, Golden Birch Photography is the way to go! – J & C

  • Kristen was lovely to work with! Our photos were unique and beautiful and she somehow managed to capture every single moment of the whole day. She took care to ask us what our thoughts were and what we wanted special attention paid to. I couldnt be happier with the experience she gave us. It helped make our special day stress free! Her final package was well presented and personal to our wedding. Im looking forward to looking back on those photos for the rest of my life! – C & M

  • On behalf of my wife and myself, we were truly blown away by Kristen’s photography service. Planning a wedding day was stressful enough, but Kristen took away a lot of our stress by being flexible and working with another photographer on the day. She also provided her own suggestions and insights, establishing trust that she knew what she was talking about. Both I and my wife were honoured to have Kristen photograph our special day, not only because we wanted photos but it felt like she was a part of the event. Kristen showed true compassion for making our day more than we could have ever imagined. It truly felt like she was one of the family. The cherry on top is how efficiently she got our photos back to us, only having to wait about a couple weeks (way past our expectations). – D & B

  • We had a photoshoot with Kristen and she was so patient with our one-year-old! We just got our photo gallery back and we love all of the photos! Definitely recommend Golden  Birch for couples/family photo sessions – I can’t say enough good things about the service and quality! – E & T

  • Where do we even begin? Kristen was amazing from the very start of planning. She is responsive and gave us timing suggestions to ensure we had enough time to take a break and enjoy every moment. On our wedding day she was so professional. She arrived ready for the day and started taking photos as soon as she arrived. She was also there the day before to do scouting for spots (it was a rural wedding where she had never been before). Once we started our photos she was great at keeping us all organized and moving to ensure we got as many great photos as possible. During the ceremony we didn’t even know she was there. She captured moments that my husband and I would have missed had she not been there. I could go on and on about the rest of our day but it all comes back to the same thing… SHE IS AMAZING. We would 100% recommend Kristen for anyone looking for a photographer! – K & S

  • BEST photographer ever! Kristen took our engagement and wedding photos and they were beyond gorgeous. Very happy we chose her to document our special day! She is very talented and dedicated to her art and it shows in the photos she takes. – C & K
