1. Let's Connect
I would love to grab a cup of coffee or a glass of pinot with you!
Because I am dedicated to be there for my couples every step of the way, I only take on 15-20 wedding clients per year AND I want to help you find the perfect person to be your wedding photographer. So, let’s find out if we’re the right fit! I can’t wait to meet and get to know you, your fiancé, your love story, and your wedding dreams!
If you’re Type A like me and you want to know alllll the details of the CBK Wedding Experience, keep scrolling!
2. We Are Official!
I’m your girl and you’ve booked your date
We immediately connected over those drinks, you’ve decided that you can’t wait to have me capture your wedding, and I’ve done a little happy dance with my hubby in our living room. True story – I get so excited when couples like you choose me! I will send you my Preferred Vendors Catalog and a personalized Stress-Free Timeline to help you continue checking off items from your wedding planning to-do list. You will also get access to my Memories Fund link to add to your registry. Bride-to-be, be on the lookout for your invitation to my private Facebook group exclusively for CBK brides to connect!!
3. Engagement Session
Let’s get you in front of my camera!
Most of my couples choose to include an Engagement Session in their Collection and I encourage all of my couples to make it a date night! Get dressed up, get your hair and makeup professionally done, and plan to celebrate your amazing session over dinner and a bottle of wine. During your session we will have fun, we will get to know each other even better, and you will walk away feeling totally comfortable and confident for your wedding day!
4. Wedding Planning
I’m here for you every step of the way
Whether we have months or more than a year before your big day, I love to get celebratory texts when big items get crossed off the to-do list and I’m always willing to be a sounding board. Whatever you need, I’m just a text or email away! About a month before your wedding day, we’ll get all the details figured out and the timeline finalized ahead of time so that your big day is perfect.
5. Wedding Day
The Big Day is here!
We have been counting down the days, and it’s FINALLY here! I can not wait to celebrate the two of you and I am going to start by giving you the biggest hug when I walk into your getting ready suite!! I will be there to capture all of the tears and laughs and I will happily help pin a boutonniere or grab you a drink. You will be able to enjoy your day knowing that every authentic moment and emotional memory will be captured and that your photographs will be timeless.
6. The Premiere Party
It’s time to re-live your beautiful wedding day!
I will take my time and the utmost care with the images from your wedding – every image will be individually retouched and every CBK couple receives a custom-designed album to have as an heirloom for generations. When the first draft of your album design, your custom wall art designs, and your full gallery is ready – we will get together to celebrate!
Your wedding day is not the end of your love story
I am committed to being my couples’ Forever Photographer. I am completely serious when I say that I want to have an amazing relationship with you, and serve you so well as your wedding photographer that you can’t imagine anyone else capturing all the amazing life adventures to come! From your “I dos”, to puppy kisses and baby toes, and through the years of snuggles and belly laughs…your most precious memories will be preserved by someone you know and trust.
“Kelsey, you were so much more than just our photographer. You and your assistant were both so warm and friendly to everyone annnnnnnd you helped with small and large details of the wedding. Looking forward to doing some “we are having a baby ” photos one day with you… Thank you again so much.”
I offer customized wedding photography experiences for my couples.
Every image is individually edited and available in an online gallery for you to share with your family and friends.
You deserve more than just digital files though, you deserve something real that will preserve your memories.
You will receive a curated Wedding Album to tell the story of your wedding day for generations and Custom Wall Art designs to fill your home with the story of your joy and love.
On average, CBK couples invest at least 4000 on their wedding day coverage.

Frequently asked questions
Do you have a second photographer?
I absolutely prefer to work with a second photographer at all of my weddings, and I have some amazing people (shoutout to Melissa and Christina) that I love to work with! I have a whole blog post about why second photographers are so important – but a few of my top reasons are: we can be in more than one place at the same time, you will get more images of your day, and they are basically an insurance policy!
Do you offer albums?
Yes! In fact, I feel so strongly about you having tangible memories that you can share with your loved ones, that I offer album options with every collection. I offer two different styles of albums in three different sizes.
Do you shoot elopements or intimate weddings?
Absolutely! I actually have a bit of a secret love affair with them. There’s just something so authentic about having your day be focused in on making memories with only each other (or your closest family and friends).
Do you travel?
YES – and I LOVE to! Whether you’re planning a wedding in Michigan or anywhere beyond, I would love to hear from you! Travel expenses will be included in your Custom Collections if your wedding will be outside of a 60 mile radius from Chelsea.
How far in advance should we contact you?
It’s never too early. Weekends during popular wedding months fill up very quickly. If you have a date and venue booked, it’s definitely time to get in touch with me! I’ve also had many couples inquire about my availability prior to booking their venue. Feel free to contact me about my open dates prior to booking a venue! Typically vendors book up to a year in advance.
How do we book you?
The first step of course is getting in touch with me by filling out the Contact Form above. Once we know we’re the perfect fit, you’ll be able to secure your date with a $1000 retainer.
