About Kerri Kirshner and Acclaimed Photography
I’m a photographer, global citizen, world-traveler, travel hacker, lover of life (!!), curious, creative, outgoing, spunky, adventurous, friendly, and easy to work with.
I LOVE Working With People!
Regardless of the people I work with (At Acclaimed Photography we photograph: newborns, children, family, high school seniors, and corporate events, and special needs children) I try to find a connection with each person and family. My main goal is to create a fun and relaxed environment so you’re relaxed and at ease; it shows in your photos.
Who’s The BEST Photographer??
Who’s one of the Top 10 Photographer in the Seattle area? There are several photographers, many very good and there is a photographer for everyone’s style and budget. I invite you to first view my website and the different galleries that interest you. If I have that certain artistic-something that catches your eye, and you like my style, I would be happy to talk to you on the phone or in person, and discuss creating a customized photography session for you and/or your family.
My Photography Journey
My amateur photography hobby started in 1989 when I photographed my first wedding; I loved it and I went on to photograph about 150 weddings over the next 10-ish years.
In 2009 I made a clean break from corporate America and I’ve been a full-time professional photographer ever since. No looking back and no regrets! Deep in my hear I believe each person or family should have a special portrait that conveys who they are and to capture the love they share together. I love creating special artwork for each individual or family that crosses my path.
My main focus now is for individuals (professional headshots and personal art pieces), portrait and family photography, children and high school seniors. I also do on-location photography for corporations/events.
My 15 minutes of fame: I won Photographer of The Year through the Seattle Professional Photographers Association. Through a series of monthly contests I put my ‘work’ up against the rest of the Association and in the end I won for that year.
And… One of the BEST and biggest parts of my life, my husband, Eddie. He’s fun, adventurous, super-outgoing, and you’ll likely see him with me on one of my photo sessions.
My passion an personal hobby (besides photography as a business) is blogging about our travels on my website, Adventures In Wanderland. I like to teach people how to ‘travel-hack’, travel free and cheap! You can check out our latest travel-related shenanigans by checking out my travel blog here
