the CBK wedding Experience

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.

We hired Captured By Kelsey to be our wedding photographer and she did a phenomenal job! Not only are her photos stunning, but she got to know us over the year in between hiring and wedding time and by the time the wedding came around, it felt like hanging out with a good friend all day. Kelsey is consistently able to capture that special moment all throughout the day while being cognizant of family drama and managing little kids running in and out of frame! Kelsey has become so much more to us than our wedding photographer; she’s our lifelong photographer for any milestone now and our friend!

By the time the wedding came around, it felt like hanging out with a good friend all day.

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 captured the most beautiful, natural moments for us. 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 made us feel so comfortable!

Photography was the most important thing to us when we started planning the wedding and we knew Kelsey was fit for the job. She made the entire process an unforgettable experience.  Kelsey managed to depict the love that my husband and I have shared for the last 10 years, as we are high school sweethearts, through her lenses. I’ve watched my sneak peak reel from our wedding over 1,000 times! I’ve cried, yelled “OMG”, and relived our magical night countless times. While I only have the sneak peaks, I can’t even imagine what the entire album is going to look like. I would recommend Kelsey to anyone and everyone! We are so lucky to be part of the CBK family and can’t wait for Kelsey to capture more as our lives continue.

Our photos capture who we are as individuals as well as a couple.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to decide on a Michigan wedding 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 Michigan 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 Michigan cost?

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

You will find that there is an incredible range of Michigan wedding photography prices (1-12k). 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?


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?


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 Michigan?


Think I’m your girl, but not planning an Ann Arbor wedding? Don’t panic, I’ve photographed weddings throughout Michigan and beyond! 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?


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.

I strive to capture Timeless Photographs of Authentic Moments and Emotional Memories for all of the most important chapters in your story. I believe you deserve to have photos that look and feel like your memories so that you can share your story with generations to come and your legacy can live on in your family's history.
