Kirstin started LaRoche Photography in 2008 after studying at Columbia College. She has photographed all over the states and internationally shooting primarily weddings. She got her start taking photos of animals for her senior thesis. This pivotal moment in her life jumpstarted her love for rescuing animals. She has fostered over 40 pets in the last 4 years. Her fun loving lifestyle compliments her work as a photographer in every way. She loves the outdoors and drinking wine while she edits your photos.
Grant joined LaRoche Photography in 2012. He specializes in Wedding Photography and has also shot all over the states and internationally. When Grant is not behind the camera, you can find him behind his drums. A talented musician, who just recently released a vinyl record, Grant currently plays with DeYoung & Jones but has been a member of over a dozen groups in the Chicagoland area since 2006. He also is an avid racecar driver and loves relaxing in his cabana with a craft beer.
CJ has been in the event industry since 1999 working behind the scenes and the camera. After graduating from NIU in 2001, she spent 3 years fundraising for cancer research by hiking the Appalachian Trail. Although her degree was in Art Education, she continued in the event industry with both domestically and internationally on events. In the fall of 2013, her husband Adam and her welcomed their first child and her passion turned from a full time event producer to a mom. Now working on local events, she has more time for her family and sipping on margaritas.
