Hi, I'm Kelsey.

I am honored that you are considering me as your Second Photographer! I know how important it is to choose a Second who is the right fit, so I’ll start off by telling you a little about myself:

I am a wanderluster at heart, a lover of all things dark chocolate, a sucker for furry animals, and a free spirit on horseback. I stay up way too late for having two children, but that’s when I work best and have the most inspiring thoughts and conversations. I’m not a morning person…so I’m a pretty big fan of coffee, and the pinot twins are my nightcap of choice. I am a wife to Adam, a handsome and hard-working man who is an incredible husband and father to our two beautiful kiddos Danny and Kennedy, and our fur baby Zoe.

Your second photographer.

My focus is to serve YOU. I believe communication is KEY – I will check in with you frequently before and during the wedding day to make sure I meet your expectations. That being said, I also know when to give you space…when I say frequently I don’t mean so much that you feel like you’re coming down with Charlie Brown Syndrome. I ask that you provide me with some of your business cards so that I can be an ambassador for you and your business throughout the wedding day when someone inevitably asks for contact information. I will do everything I can to help the day go smoothly while we have fun together serving your clients. 

As a second photographer..

I can hang with the guys (actually, for most of my life I had more guy friends than girl friends), I LOVE shooting the details, and when we’re together I focus on capturing alternative angles and candids. I’m not a huge fan of soliciting grip & grins (I don’t think I’ve met a photographer who is?!), but if that’s what you and your client want, I will be your Cocktail Hour Paparazzi! I'll also do my best to be your bts content creator when the opportunity arises ;-)

all the details, all the time.
