Kir Tuben

Principal, Owner


I'm Kirs Tuben, a Florida girl who loves adventure & sunshine. I studied Photography & Documentary Studies at Duke University. After graduating in 2011, I moved to Northern Virginia to start my little business with my husband, Ben. I believe that every moment in your life is a "photo op." I love Netflix, music festivals and my cats, Tuna and Lobo. Don't be shy about reaching out for questions or even coffee. I can't wait to meet you!

Katie Ahlers

Associate Photographer 


Katie is a joyful, genuine photographer who joined the Kir2ben team in 2016. Just like Kir, Katie is deeply rooted in a documentary style.

She is a lifestyle and wedding photographer that loves authentic moments, natural light and laughter. She is a Pennsylvania girl, born and raised, and currently calls Virginia her home.  

She loves dancing almost as much as her poodle Windsor!

You can usually find her exploring the city or traveling the world when she's not shooting weddings. We work as a team whenever possible but also document stunning weddings separately!
