I'm Alina Kolberg! I'm a photographer specializing in portrait, wedding, and lifestyle photography. I'm based in CHARLOTTE, NC, but I'm open to traveling wherever! I love the ability for photography to tell a story, capture an emotion, or create a feeling. I aim to make my sessions feel relaxed, natural, and comfortable and for the final product to be authentic while capturing you in the best possible way.

Here's what people have to say
"Alina is fantastic! She did our engagement photos and we are so in love with them! Alina is very sweet and professional. She made us feel comfortable even though we were getting a ton of pictures taken of us. And the locations she took us to, one of which was Black Balsam, were so perfect. What I loved the most was that the pictures came out looking very natural, but still romantic. I really wanted to get pictures in the mountains where we got engaged and we do not live in state, but she was so responsive to my e-mails and very through in the details provided. She really made it easy. I'm so thankful that we found Alina. Her photos are absolutely gorgeous and I will be so proud to show them to friends and family at our wedding and in our home." Brit R
"Alina made me feel so lovely! I felt very comfortable and am so happy with every image." Breanna S
"Alina is absolutely amazing! The photos she took are honestly the best photos I have ever received. She is original and creative and I truly feel like she made my vision come true. She goes above and beyond to make sure that your photos turn out absolutely stunning and exactly the way you imagined it. Plus, doing the shoot with her was so easy and comfortable, it felt like being with a friend. I really can’t thank her enough and am still in awe of the photos she took! Do yourself a favor and book a session with Alina. You won’t regret it!" Tayina F
"They [the photos] are amazing! I absolutely love them!" Jaci B
"Just wanted to drop a huge " THANK YOU" these photos look amazing! You did a phenomenal job, really captured our vision and the look we were hoping for. We were laughing to ourselves thinking "oh god, poor Alina" because we know we aren't the best at posing making certain looks, despite that you managed to capture us at our best. Thanks again so much." Teresa

ENCHANTED FOREST STYLED ELOPEMENT // ROAN HIGH BLUFF, TN
Last month I collaborated on a gorgeous styled elopement shoot with Roan Wedding & Events, a WNC-based event planning company. They sent me a absolutely stunning Pinterest inspiration board filled with moody textures, quartz, florals, and natural elements, and once I saw it, I knew I was in!
STYLED ELOPEMENT SHOOT // BILTMORE CONSERVATORY & GARDENS
I recently had the amazing opportunity to put together a styled elopement shoot with HMUA Emily Radin and florist Lavender Fox Florals of Asheville, NC. I wanted the shoot to be very earthy and boho, while focusing on natural and tender interactions between the couple. We chose to shoot at the Biltmore Conservatory & Gardens in Asheville, NC.
ASHEVILLE GLAMPING // LIFESTYLE FAMILY SHOOT
Several months ago, I donated a photo session to be auctioned off at Climate City Soiree - A Party & Fundraiser for The Collider. The Collider is a wonderful organization based in Asheville, NC. They are a nonprofit innovation center focused on catalyzing market-driven climate solutions. Check out their website, https://thecollider.org.
I was super excited to hear from the winner, who was also a fellow photographer! She wanted family photos taken, which was somewhat out of my comfort zone, but I think the final result turned out wonderfully!
