"the art of real"

You’re getting married! (I’m assuming, here…) Congrats! And now you’ve got places to go and people to see…a wedding planning whirlwind awaits you. I really appreciate you taking the time to check out Birch Blaze! Hi, I’m Kerry, and I want you to know it’s super important to me that we’re a great fit. You should feel really comfortable with your wedding photographer, and I want to make sure that I only enhance your amazing experience on your wedding day. Your wedding should be the best party you’ve ever had. That means friends, family, good food, good drink, maybe some dancing, maybe not….but relaxed, as stress-free as possible, and fun! My approach to wedding photography is laid back, go-with-the-flow, preserve all those special moments (‘the art of real’) , and make it fun! No attitude, no stress. If that sounds like your cup of joe, scroll on…..

about...

Birch Blaze Studios photographer, Kerry Struble.
Hi, I’m Kerry. I’m a husband, dad, artist, musician….photographer. I’m grateful for everyday of life on this planet, and hope that I make everyday count. I’m a lover of (almost) all things vintage, including clothes, architecture, and music. In fact, I have a swing jazz band, and most days that I’m out and about, you’ll likely find me dressed like I just stepped out of the 1940’s. So I guess you could say I embrace individuality. I really enjoy connecting with kind people, having real conversations, and hearing their story. I love music, natural beauty (hiking, a day at the beach), and of course, friends and family. Along with my beautiful Wife, and best friend Taylor, I love to travel, experience brand new sights, sounds, smells, and flavors. But I also relish in an evening that will most likely include Taylor, pj’s, take-out, and a Netflix binge. Together, we have a rescue-Staffie, Birdie. THE sweetest, most mellow pooch on four legs. And then there’s Nico, our definitely NOT-the-sweetest-most-mellow cat on four legs, but we let him hang around anyway.

I love being a wedding photographer am so grateful it allows me to connect with people and immortalize their stories. I’m also very grateful for the trust I receive from couples that choose to put their most precious moments in my hands. The rare privilege of spending more time with two people on their wedding day than most of their friends and family is not lost on me. I treat that privilege with great care and respect.

My goal with every wedding and engagement I photograph is to tell the story of “you,” yes, but to also capture the essence of personality and the emotions of the moment, and express this artistically. To do that, it’s also my job to help you feel at ease in front of the camera, so you can be yourselves, and actually have fun.

Who Might You Be? 🙂

You are incredibly excited at the thought of all the people you love most in the world, being gathered together in one place, sharing the laughter, friendship, and love, that the celebration of your wedding day will encompass. That’s what you’re looking forward to the most, and that’s what you want captured in photographs. The moments, the emotion. You really value photography, even tho’ you may feel a bit nervous and awkward in front of the camera. You have an adventurous, do-what-it-takes spirit, and are up for hopping over that stone wall or wading through the deep grass to create an epic shot that will impress the heck out of your grandchildren!

NH Wedding Photographer…and Beyond!

I am currently accepting a limited number of wedding photography bookings for 2019-2020. I’m based in New Hampshire, between the White Mountains, the Lakes Region (Winnipesaukee) and the NH Seacoast, but I love traveling around New England to photograph weddings in Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Rhode Island as well. Taylor and I have also traveled extensively, across the US, photographing weddings and engagements in Colorado, Arizona, California, New York City and even Alaska! So yes, I’m available for travel just about anywhere on the planet…) If you think I may be the right fit for the both of you on your most precious day click here to schedule a meetup or chat. I’d love to hear about your plans, and talk with you more about my approach, and offer some wedding day insights that you will likely find helpful as you plan for your wedding.

so we've been told...
  • Kerry and Taylor are an absolute joy to work with. Choosing them as our wedding photographers was so easy—their editorial style was exactly what we were looking for! They are not only talented and creative, but they have a fun and down-to-earth energy about them that is unobtrusive and really puts people at ease. They captured so many beautiful candid moments from our wedding. I can’t say enough good things!

  • I cannot say enough about the Photography team of Taylor and Kerry Struble at Birch Blaze Photography. From our first email exchange, to the pictures we received, everything was amazing. They were creative, fun, excited, easy going and professional. The ideas they had for photos were so good, and everything I could have wanted in preserving this special day. They captured every moment perfectly. 🙂

  • We met Kerry and Taylor a little over a year ago at Breaking Grounds in Portsmouth. We hadn't been talking for more than 2 minutes when we realized that we NEEDED to have the husband and wife team photograph our wedding! Kerry and Taylor think outside of the box and take the most unique shots. From our fist conversation, to our engagement session, and to their ideas for our wedding pictures - they made us feel completely comfortable in front of the camera and confident in their work.

  • We absolutely love, love, love both Kerry and Taylor! They are quite the dynamic duo and we feel privileged and lucky that we were able to have them document our wedding...They are creative, a little artsy, and "see" things with the camera in a little bit of a different way. Their finish work is polished, clean, SHARP and visually stunning. In person they are unassuming, friendly, down to earth, and just really nice people! We loved our time pre-wedding when we would meet and discuss our plans for the day and they were great to have with us that day. We just really enjoy hanging out with them. They worked incredibly hard for us that day, both taking pictures, and their work and friendliness did not go unnoticed by our guests...We cannot recommend them highly enough and hope you consider them for your wedding. It was one of the best decisions we made!
