Kelsey cares about her couples and really wants to get to know them personally. She is personable, professional, talented, attentive, organized, and so much more. Honestly, I can’t say enough good things. From the moment we started working with her I felt 100% comfortable and taken care of. Kelsey is a great photographer, but she makes sure the entire experience is effortless and amazing. Some photographers may be very talented but not organized. Others might be organized but not be able to capture your day the way you want it. You don’t have to settle with Kelsey.

Kelsey will be everything you need and everything you didn't even know you needed.

Kelsey is amazing!! I met Kelsey at a wedding expo and had actually been planning on using someone else until I saw her work and fell in love. Neither my fiancé or myself had ever had professional pictures taken so we were both nervous and didn’t want our pictures to look too staged. Kelsey made us feel so comfortable! Our engagement photos turned out so incredible and breath taking! I am so excited for her to photograph our wedding for us and capture all our smiles and laughs on our big day. I’m so glad I met her and would recommend her to anyone!


Kelsey captured the most beautiful, natural moments for us

What to Expect When Working With Captured by Kelsey

What makes me different from other Ann Arbor Wedding Photograhers...

Ann Arbor is filled with gorgeous and unique locations that can serve as the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos. I’ve been around long enough to know where to go and what times to go there. Whether you’re looking for engagement photos at a romantic date location, or a stunning venue for your dream wedding, I can help you find the right spot. I will also provide you with my Preferred Vendors Guide to help you build the BEST team of wedding vendors. When you work with me, my resources become your resources.

Support & Understanding

You don’t have to take my word about the quality of my photos, you can see it for yourself.
What you do have to trust is that I can do the same thing for you that I have done for all of the couples whose big days I’ve captured in the past.

I don’t approach wedding photography as a task that I must complete, I love being a wedding photographer and consider it an honor to capture and preserve these memories. I want you to have the photos that you want. I only take on 15-20 couples a year because I want to reserve as much time as possible for each one. I will take the time to get to know you, your future spouse, and your wedding plans so that I can help you achieve your vision.

Individual Attention & an Experience Tailored to You

I have to admit something: I’m not satisfied with my own wedding photos.

Of course, I’m still happy to have them, but I wish they had turned out differently.

When I married my husband, we hired a photographer that we didn’t know and didn’t meet until the day of the wedding. This led to a lot of the pictures looking staged and artificial. So I know the value of good photos.

Weddings can be difficult, exhausting, and stressful… which is why they are also so rewarding. I will do everything in my power to ensure that your photos capture the full scope of work you put in to make your dream wedding happen. From the beginning of your journey to the end, I am just an email or text away and I will provide you with any type of support I can—you won’t regret hiring me.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Find THe Right Ann Arbor Photographer?

How Do I Find The Right Ann Arbor Photographer?

How you choose your photographer will depend on what you want. Thanks to modern technology, almost all cameras are capable of taking high-quality images. However, not all photographers are capable of capturing high-quality moments.

It’s not difficult to find an Ann Arbor wedding photographer who will show up, take some pictures, then leave and send digital images to you. What you really need though, is somebody who feels like they belong at your wedding.

When you sit down in 15 years to reminisce about “the old days,” you’ll want to remember more than how you looked—you’ll want to remember how you felt. Find a photographer who isn’t afraid to capture the unplanned, in-between moments. Photos that a complete stranger would see and think, “So that’s what love looks like.”

How much does a wedding photographer in Ann Arbor, MI cost?

How much does a wedding photographer in Ann Arbor, MI cost?

No one wants to talk about money when it comes to a wedding. Wedding vendors' prices are often referred to as an investment. While this may bring on an uncontrolled eye-roll at first, understandably so in some cases, it is absolutely the correct term to use when it comes to your wedding photography. Whatever you spend on your wedding photos will continue to pay itself back throughout the rest of your life, and even after you're gone! Your photos are the one thing that will keep the memories of your wedding day alive as you share them with your family and friends for years to come; they are your first family heirlooms, the beginning of your family history and legacy.

That being said, you will find that there is an incredible range of Ann Arbor wedding photography prices (1-10k). Ultimately, the saying "you get what you pay for" certainly rings true and you will have to ask yourself what kind of photography experience you want to have and how important your wedding photos are to you.

WHen should I start looking for my Wedding Photographer?

WHEN SHOULD I START LOOKING FOR MY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?

As soon as you have your wedding venue booked and your wedding date locked in, you should start looking for your wedding photographer.

I prefer to be invested in my clients—I want to be a part of your wedding dreams! I’ve learned the photos will be more genuine if we establish a friendship as well as a partnership. Let’s meet for drinks so I can hear your story, get to know the both of you, and introduce myself. I don’t mind if your wedding is years away or months away, I’m just happy to work with couples like you!

By the time your wedding comes around, we’ll have an understanding of one another that allows me to portray you and your brand new spouse in the best possible light.

Do you offer Wedding Planning support?

DO YOU OFFER WEDDING PLANNING SUPPORT?

I do offer wedding planning support, and this starts with my building a customized timeline for you! I am first and foremost a wedding photographer; but remember, I’m married myself and I've been a part of many weddings since then. Between my personal and professional experiences I'm able to provide a wealth of wisdom.

Whether you need a bit of emotional support or some serious logistical advice, I will be there for you. A key element of my wedding photography experience is doing anything and everything I can to help your wedding day be stress-free and every bit of what you dreamed it would be.

Do you photograph weddings outside of Ann Arbor?

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH WEDDINGS OUTSIDE OF ANN ARBOR?

While most of the weddings I photograph are in Ann Arbor, Detroit, Chelsea, Dexter, Saline, Plymouth, Lansing, Howell, Toledo, and everywhere in between; I love to return to my Alma Mater stomping grounds in Grand Rapids, revisit our newlywed date spots in Kalamazoo, and I'm always up for a new adventure somewhere new! I am willing and love to travel, so please don't let distance prevent you from getting in touch with me.

Are you only a Wedding Photographer?

ARE YOU ONLY A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?

I am so glad you asked! My mission is actually to not just be your Wedding Photographer, but to be your Forever Photographer.

Even though it is a very special day, you shouldn't limit the only beautiful memories of your life to your wedding day. I also provides other photography services, including newborn sessionsfamily portraits, senior photos, and quinceñera portrait and event photography.
