YOUR wedding photos

I am passionate about documenting love stories and giving clients a way to pass their story down for generations. 

I cannot wait to capture your story.

Now you’re planning and looking for your dream photographer, but you might not even be sure of what you’re looking for. And I know what you’re thinking, “Kelsey, you silly girl, I’m looking for a photographer for my day, duh.” BUT hear me out! It’s so much more than that. 

You deserve someone who is going to be your biggest cheerleader, who wants to serve you from planning outfits for your engagement session to timeline help to designing your album - not just someone who can show up on your day for the least amount of money. 

I know you want gorgeous images to celebrate your love and this new chapter in your life, and you should get those -- you just shouldn’t have to figure it all out on your own. You deserve a photographer who can help you plan your engagement session and outfits, who will provide you with timeline guidance so you get all parts of your important day documented, who has vender recommendations and planning advice to reduce the stress of your day, and who helps you get those dreamy images into your hands and not just on a hard drive somewhere. 

Oh, hot damn -
You’re engaged!!!

I cannot say enough great things about Kelsey. She has been so sweet and so incredibly easy to work with.


I’m Kelsey. I love cold brew coffee, stroller walks with my tiny tot, and binge watching early 2000s teen dramas (I’m looking at you Veronica Mars), and I’m obsessed with telling stories. I am passionate about documenting love stories and giving clients a way to pass their story down for generations. 

Maybe you’re worried about your budget. Maybe you’re getting lost in all the things that can be included in a wedding day. Maybe you don’t think you want an album included in your package. 

You shouldn’t be putting all of this thought and planning into your day only to hate your wedding photos because you didn’t invest in your photographer, and you shouldn’t have to log onto your computer to see your images. You found me for a reason. Together, I know we can create incredibly beautiful memories from your wedding day. 

Are you ready to get your dream wedding photos? 

this looks like
a job for me... 

Your engagement session is such an important part of your experience. I truly believe it is crucial to making your wedding day as stress-free as possible. Your engagement session gives us a chance to spend time together, for you guys to become familiar with how I work, and this will directly lead to a better experience on your wedding day. We will be able to move quicker through your portraits while getting you great variety, and allowing you to spend more time with each other.

Part of what makes your day so enjoyable is having a timeline that doesn't add to the stress. I will build you a custom timeline based on your ceremony time, the sunset on your wedding day, and if you choose to do a first look.
I want to help you get as many photos as possible, and help you enjoy your wedding day with all your important people. 

custom timeline

man, this stuff is good




because your day isn't like anyone elses

You should have your photos as soon as possible, and that is where your online gallery comes in. You can download print resolution photos, save favorites, email them and share your links with loved ones. You might worry about downloading the photos, but saving your files is the best way to guarantee you always have them. Now that doesn't mean that downloading them is their last stop.

but that's not all




quick access to all your photos

The story of your day, printed and bound for you to enjoy now, and to pass on for generations to come. The albums layflat, so we don't lose any details in the fold. They are of remarkable quality and just gorgeous. Printed photos from your day that you can show off in a high quality album that will last years to come. You might be worried about the expense, but that is why I have built it into your package. I think every wedding needs to be printed, and I’d hate for you to miss out on this.

take it from the top




the perfect way to remember your day

Reserve your day

Here's the best and easiest way to get your wedding album printed and in your hands - I design, order, and ship it to you. You'd feel excited about your wedding photo experience - and know your fiance is too (even while you're both neck deep in the land of never ending decisions). Plus, you're already a busy woman with everything else on your plate - if you have to figure out one more detail for ONE more thing in life you may have to just elope. 

A breathtaking, heirloom wedding album full of gorgeous photos of your day is within reach. A done for you album, in hand at the end of your experience. Cause one day you'd be remiss if you weren't able to reminisce. Have a wedding album you can be proud of.

Let's create something beautiful

I cannot say enough great things about Kelsey. She has been so sweet and so incredibly easy to work with. She flew out to Seattle to shoot our engagement photos and we had such a great time. She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. You will absolutely not regret hiring this talented lady for your photos!

Kelsey has done an amazing job at capturing my family's milestones this past year. From the moment of our first session, to now our fifth session coming up this fall, Kelsey has surpassed my expectations each and every time! She is very quick to respond, detailed oriented, and is very talented.

We absolutely loved our experience with Kelsey. We have a handful 2 year old and at every occasion she just completely embraced him he ended up loving her and her endless amounts of treats! Look forward to working with her again in the future!

She is so bubbly and sweet and made us feel very comfortable the whole session. To put the cherry on top, we got our pictures within days when we were expecting to have to wait a few weeks! The pictures are beyond words and I can’t wait to have her photograph our baby’s newborn photos once he finally gets here!
