We have been doing this photo thing for over a decade now and we absolutely love the places it has taken us and the friendships it has created.
More than our passion for photography is our love for people. We value relationships and experiences over any golden light or stunning landscape (although let's be real, we will pull over on the side of the road and jump up and down for those any day). Our primary focus is to build a relationship with anyone who is in front of our cameras, and know them as more than a client or subject. So yes - we definitely may cry during your vows or the father-daughter dance.
We will be the first to say that I'm not the photographers for everyone. We are for those who love the in-between moments, who prefer mood over technically correct, who stray from the traditional and like to get a little dirty, and who aren't afraid to run around or hike a mountainside to get a killer shot. We love traveling and will hop on a plane in a heartbeat to come photograph you! If you connect with that, We would love to hear from you!
We realize that most people have not spent any time in front of a camera. We promise not to cause flashbacks to your awkward prom poses! We like giving direction and guidance all while making sure we capture you in your element where the true love and real emotions come out. The best photos are always the ones that sometimes feel like you aren’t doing it “right" or anything outside your ordinary. But that’s the best part—there is no right or wrong. Every couple is different and the way they show their love is unique and special. We are obsessed with that and believe everyone deserves to be loved and have it captured.
We also have a beautiful daughter, Windsor. We love music, watching thrillers, home décor, breakfasts together, and a good game night. We are pretty obsessed with nature - studying it, looking at it, being in it. We value deep relationships, making people feel seen and comfortable. That's the good stuff!
Kelsey started her journey with photography in high school. She was instantly drawn to capturing emotions and moments in a photograph that you can keep forever. She would spend the entire P.E. period in school with my little point and shoot camera taking photos of my friends. She attended art school where she learned the importance of creating art. Craig started photography in college and when he met Kelsey, it went from a hobby to a profession! Craig still works full-time as an email marketing manager for a soccer retail company, but comes along as the second shooter for nearly every wedding!
The thing that has always driven us is giving others something they will treasure for a lifetime. Now that we are parents, that passion has only grown stronger. We know that time is precious and fleeting. Every moment counts. One of our love languages is acts of service and we feel as if it’s our duty to make sure all of our couples know how hard we will always work for them and prove our appreciation to them during and after photographing them.
One of our largest goals as your photographer is to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera especially on your most important day. We also do my best to capture the day in a truly authentic way. We have a passion for helping the day run smoothly from start to finish. You will definitely see us jump in to put boutonnieres on or fix your veil or hair.
We will always arrive early to make sure every moment is captured. After a couple cups of coffee in the morning, we are ready to take on the long and rewarding day ahead. We will be there documenting the getting ready through to ceremony, reception and dancing the night away. We will be there in the center of it all when I need to and as a wallflower behind the scenes, photographing moments and details that otherwise might be missed.

"Kelsey turned our wedding into an event to remember. She took the most amazing photos and kindly coached me and my groom and our whole family in taking the best photos."
"I cannot say enough about Kelsey! She was the perfect wedding photographer in every single way. Her eye for photography and passion for wedding photography is absolutely evident in her work."
"One my favorite things about being photographed by Kelsey is how she always makes me and my family feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera."
"I'm so happy with the pictures I get to treasure now and forever! You can tell she pours every ounce of her heart into her work and that shines through in each and every photo."
