About Kelsey

"The first word that comes to my mind immediately is simple.  
Real smiles. Real laughter. Real moments that I am just fortunate enough to catch."

19.  That's how old I was when I shot my first wedding. It was the summer after my senior year of high school and I remember every moment of that day. It was a nervous high, triple checking my locations, remembering every photograph requested, and every photo not. I collapsed into bed that night, eyes heavy and feet aching. But when I finally looked at what I had created, living and breathing on my monitor, I found a confidence I had been searching for my entire teenage years. 

Now at the age of 24, I have had the opportunity to work with over 30 couples. Still a small number to most, but that doesn't make the lessons learned and the moments created any less valuable. Whether it is in my profession or my personal life, I am growing

The tale is as old as the ground we walk on. Anyone capable of figuring out a camera can take a picture. So what sets me apart from another? Photography for me is all about an emotion. An emotion that’s being had and an emotion that is still to come. I have and always will believe the true character of a person can be captured within a millisecond of a photographer clicking the shutter button. Smiling isn’t always the truest representation of who you are as a person. It’s the way you throw your head back in laughter, or how you pull your lips into a small smile when you look at the person you love. It’s the rare and few glimpses when your guard is down and you forget that there is even a camera.

Yes I am a photographer but I am also a contemporary romance novel junkie (Want my kindle password? Seriously I share it with EVERYONE) a spinach addict (This is the healthiest part about me) and a boy band freak. No really if you play a Backstreet Boys song at your reception I will sing along as I capture you and your guests embracing your inner fan girl. So if you believe your wedding photos matter just as much as I feel they do please don’t hesitate to say hi!
