About my work:
Hi, I'm Kirth Bobb, and I'm a wedding photographer based in Washington, DC. My work has been featured in numerous publications, including Essence, MunaLuchi Bride, Ebony, The Bride's Cafe and several newspapers around the world.
My focus is on capturing the intimacy in subtle gestures, the elegance in details, and the honesty of spontaneous emotion. The term for my style is photojournalistic, but I like to think of my work as documenting vibrant stories of people expressing love through their genuine, natural interactions with everything and everyone around them.
Weddings have taken me all over the world, and have been a joyous introduction to all sorts of new people and new (to me) traditions. As a result, I have a great respect for and experience with documenting various cultural wedding customs.
My approach is to blend into the background. I would never want to get in the way of a hug, a tear, or a moment of calm reflection. I am also well-versed in traditional, posed photography and use a mix of these styles to tell the truest story while featuring the best qualities of my clients.
My goal is to get my favorite reaction: "Oh my god, how did you even see that? I'm glad you got a picture of it; I forgot that had happened."
My favorite camera is whichever camera is with me. My philosophy comes from my grandmother's saying, "There is an art to everything," so I never want to miss an opportunity to capture art as it's happening.
With a background in visual art and interests film, psychology, and anatomy, I choose to photograph people because they are dynamic, with the potential to tell an incredible number of stories.
During sessions, I try to make things as relaxed and fun as possible for everyone. One of my favorite memories is the time I volunteered to carry shoes for a pregnant member of a bridal party - she just couldn't stand wearing them anymore!
When I'm not traveling the world to document celebrations of love, I enjoy spending time with my wife and enjoying the company of friends and family.
