Oh man, oh man I loved 2023. The crazy backlog of 2020 finally set itself right and I felt like a normal human with a fun job. This year, I personally captured 38 weddings and my team documented 8. I traveled within the states to North Carolina, California (twice), Florida for Hybrid, New York for […]

A Year in Review | Kir Tuben Wedding Photographer 2023 | Personal Post

I am lucky enough to say this was my fourth time in Paris. I first went at twenty-two, my second summer after college on a Contiki. I was only there a weekend so I planned to go back the following year with Ben! My soon-to-be husband had to see my favorite city. My third trip […]

Paris Vacation | France Travel Tips | Parisian Wedding Photography | Personal Post

Peru has always been on my bucket list. In my thirties, I have been super lucky to have been able to branch out to South American travel. My trip to Bolivia in 2022 really opened my eyes to all the region has to offer. My only regret is I didn’t stay longer! I flew right […]

It finally happened, we made it to Japan. Ben and I have wanted to go since we got married but with the amount of time off it requires and COVID quarantine restrictions starting in 2020, it took us over 7 years to make this dream trip happen. That said, we had PLENTY of time to […]

Japan Vacation | Tokyo Travels | Personal Post

Every year, once a year, Ben and I pay for professional photos. I cherish photos of our parents and grandparents from their youth/time before children so I want to be sure to memorialize this time in our life. While we were in vacation in Lake Como, we decided to snap some portraits at Villa Balianello […]

Lake Como Anniversary Photos | Italy Wedding Inspiration Villa Balbianello

2022, what can I even say you saucy minx. My year by numbers shakes out to 38 weddings (and an additional 6 that Katie captured for our brand), 15 boudoir sessions, 10 surprise proposals, 51 engagement sessions and 11 lifestyle & branding images. This doesn’t include hosting a workshop, attending the Knot gala and capturing […]

2022 Year in Review | Luxury Virginia Weddings | DC Wedding Photographer Kir Tuben |

Since Ben and I are both a quarter Scottish, we decided to visit the land of our ancestors. Funnily enough, Ben’s clan (Campbell) and mine (Macdonald) fought in a brutal war against one another. We’re a modern day Romeo and Juliette I suppose. Regardless, here is our itinerary for our Scotland vacation. Day 1 I […]

Scotland Travel Itinerary | Edinburgh Vacation | Personal Post

Where do I begin this post? I guess we can start with the Why. In 2019, I booked two back to back weddings- one in Italy and one in Scotland. Needless to say, when the world shut down in 2020, this trip was forever canceled as those weddings pivoted to more local affairs. Since then, […]
