INVEST IN MEMORIES

Not only will I be your photographer, but your new friend too! I’m here to guide you both through this process, chat planning, and ease any stressful moments that surface. Above all it’s about us building a relationship. I’m here to laugh with you, spoil you, connect with you, and remind you to breathe.

Wedding days are a blur and my goal is to capture every little moment so you can remember it forever. Photos transport you back in time, remind you of the little things, and bring that joy back to the present. They are everlasting. I honor your story and am so excited to be a part of it with you.

LOVE NOTES

Holy cow - we were so blown away by Kelsey and the images she was able to capture. Not only did she capture pictures, but she captured moments that we are going to remember for forever. Her pictures are BEAUTIFUL & she is such kind and easy person to work with. Super responsive and super helpful for anything wedding and photography. We truly could not have had a better photographer for our day. 

Kali + Noah

Kelsey was amazing! She made us feel so comfortable during our engagement shoot and made our wedding day the best! I truly made a lifelong friend in Kelsey! I recommend her to anyone if you want amazing pictures and someone who truly cares about you and her work! I look back at our wedding pictures and they capture our day so perfectly! Kelsey went above and beyond and I cannot thank her enough for everything she did to make sure we had such beautiful pictures to look back on.

Melanie + Ryan

Not only is Kelsey an amazing person who I loved spending time with on our wedding day (I felt 100x calmer as soon as she arrived!), but her photographs captured our love and the joy of our friends and family and help us relive each moment as we look through them over and over again. We can't wait to display them in our home and look at them for decades. She is more than just our photographer but a friend for life and I can't recommend her enough!

Morgan + Carissa

Kelsey is AMAZING! She was communicative with us through the whole process, including the postponing of our wedding due to the pandemic. She has a way of making you feel comfortable in front of the camera and creates a fun environment. She captured beautiful pictures of a day we will never forget and will always be so grateful for. Thank you, Kelsey!

Maya + Matt 

Right away from her emails we could tell how caring, professional, flexible, and amazing she was! I could tell she genuinely wanted to help us with our day, and we will never forget that. Besides all of that, we are so in LOVE with her photography and what she captured! The photos are absolutely stunning. We cannot stop looking through them! She captured everything about our microwedding and we are so thankful: the candids, the emotions, the portraits, the family, the friends, the love.

Eryn + Mike

First of all YAY! I'm so excited that you are considering me to capture your wedding day. I require a signed contract and a $1000 nonrefundable retainer (that goes towards your total balance) to secure your date. From there I'm your sidekick all the way from booking to the wedding day and beyond. 

EVERYTHING! No hidden fees. Depending on your location there may be an added travel fee but lets chat! You will be delivered a full online gallery with your polished photos and from there you can download them and do what you wish. I'm here to whole process to help answer any questions and give timeline advice.

Primarily the Pacific Northwest BUT I will travel anywhere and everywhere to capture your story.

The best outfits tend to be neutral, solid colored, comfortable clothing. Look on Pinterest or Instagram to be inspired but know the environment plays a huge factor. I'm here every step of the way to help you figure these things out.

 This is probably so much more common than you think. There's no rush or pressure whatsoever. My goal is to capture my clients exactly as they are and each couple/client will receive a different level of prompting. Its all a part of the journey. 

This can be altered by a lot of different factors but a good ballpark is roughly 100 photos per hour of wedding coverage. For an engagement session anywhere from 75-150 photos delivered.

You can share and print your photos as much as you'd like. I ask that you give me credit on social media when able. Adding filters or retouching photos is strictly prohibited but cropping is okay. I recommend ordering your prints through PASS (my online gallery delivery) to maintain the best quality but ultimately its up to you!
