Madi and Walsh’s love is radiant. Every moment of their wedding was pure joy. From spending the morning with close friends in a stunning hotel to tying the knot in a private Parisian style garden, there wasn’t a moment where they didn’t have giant smiles and look at one another like your lives were about […]

Anderson House Wedding | Society of the Cincinnati DC Wedding | Madi and Walsh

Some couples I just bond with immediately. That’s how it was with Omar and Arezo. They have infectious personalities and are constantly laughing with one another. Their light hearted personalities and goofy spirits lift up everyone around them. I actually met these two through fate: Omar proposed at the DC war memorial just moments before […]

Who else here hates COVID? Well, Emily and Andrew took on their wedding day in my favorite way in 2020: a fun elopement inspired day with hopes of a big party later! These two booked a room at the historic Hay Adams hotel to celebrate, complete with a doggy bed for their pup Rilo. They […]

Hay Adams Hotel Wedding | Anderson House Wedding | Society of the Cincinnati Wedding | Elegant DC Elopement | Emily and Andrew

Erinn and Jon tied the knot at one of the most romantic spaces in this city. The only thing that could rival the romance of the historic Anderson House was the sweet moments they shared in their apartment before and after ‘I do’. They shared a first look on their balcony which Erinn had decorated […]

Anderson House Wedding | Society of the Cincinnati DC Wedding | Erinn and Jon

Can you imagine a better setting than the Anderson House for a DC Wedding? While the District of Columbia has some stunning wedding venues, the Society of the Cincinnati has it all: an elegant European vibe with some stunning outdoor spaces. The newly painted black doors make for a classic portrait backdrop and the pool patio area is a perfect setting for a cocktail hour or some small personal vows.

Anderson House Wedding | The Society of the Cincinnati Wedding | Ariel and Eric

My favorite thing in the world to photograph is proposals. When Billy emailed Sarah to ask if he could propose at our workshop, we were both over the moon!! The plan was set, during the “engagement” portion of the shoot, I would give Billy the signal and set Taylor up for a faux First Look. She was completely shocked!

Anderson House Engagement | DC Proposal Photographer | Taylor and Billy

Today, I wanted to share all of my thoughts, feels and snaps behind my incredible labor of love on my blog. This was hands down the hardest thing I have ever done in my photography career. I’m not going to lie, hosting a workshop is tough. It was the first thing in my business I felt nervous about and I had serious doubts leading up to May: What if people didn’t buy tickets? What if attendees walk away feeling disappointed? What if I failed? Well, I’m here to tell you it was all worth it. The feeling of being able to give business owners tools to become more successful is an all time high feeling for me.

Real Talk Workshop | District of Columbia Photography Workshop | Kir Tuben Photography

As you may (or may not) know, I have officially launched my photography workshop called The Real Talk Workshop. We get it Kir… you’re hosting a workshop. So why then am I writing a blog post about it? Well, I don’t really think a landing page on my site is doing this event justice. I want to really dive in and explain the passion behind this project.
