You want your wedding to be as unique as you are. You've imagined this day for quite some time: how you will look in your wedding gown, which flowers will make up your bouquet, what song will play as you take that legendary walk up the aisle, how your grandmother will tear up when she sees how radiant you are, what your Groom will vow to you as you promise to share your forever together. You know that, most importantly, you want your wedding day to be as reflective of your relationship as possible; full of love, sincerity, and pure happiness. And above all, you desire timeless portraits that will honestly reflect the beauty and emotion of the day.
That's where I come in.
I believe that your wedding day is the most important moment of your life. As your photographer, I will be there with you every step of the way. From getting to know you and sharing a ton of laughs at your engagement session, to helping pin up your hair when a loose curl falls before the ceremony, shedding a tear when your daddy kisses you on the cheek when he sees you in your wedding gown, capturing your Groom's elation when he sees his Bride for the very first time, and cheering like crazy when you are announced as "The new Mr. & Mrs." It's an honor for me to experience these memories being made firsthand, and a pleasure to still them in time with every click of the shutter.
I set about photographing your engagement session and wedding with a fine art and photo-journalistic approach. Though I will coach you through simple, beautiful, fun, and interactive poses during the engagement session and bridal portraits on your wedding day, it is important to me to capture you both as you truly are: full of happiness and irrevocably in love. Expect a lot of movement, laughter, and to feel like you're on a date! I've accomplished my goal when people say, "Wow, she captured the way that you look at each other perfectly! These portraits really represent you just as you are."
On your wedding day, you can expect that my team and I will perform as expert professionals. I do not take what I do lightly, and after years of experience and training and over 100 weddings photographed, I know exactly what it takes to successfully manage your wedding day. I will be in touch with you often throughout your planning experience, providing tips and guidelines and words of advice that always results in a smooth wedding photography experience. Several weeks before your wedding is here, we will work together to develop a day-of wedding photography timeline that meets both of our needs and ensures everyone is on the same page for your big day. A wedding day can go by so quickly; I know that every moment that I have with you is sacred and precious and my goal is to keep you on schedule in regards to photography so that you can get back to making memories with your friends and family. It’s my promise to you that at the end of the day you’ll feel taken care of, pampered, and special after working with me and you’ll have professional, authentic, and emotion-filled wedding portraits that will grace your home for years to come.
"Kelsi was our engagement and wedding photographer and I am extremely happy with the results!! First of all, neither my husband or I are much for attention, but she made us completely comfortable and relaxed. At the engagement session, she was careful to ensure that our personalities and what was important to us was captured. For us that involved 2 dogs, 2 horses, and sunsets. We have gotten nothing but compliments and a lot of "they are perfect for YOU TWO" and that's a pretty cool feeling! On to the wedding, everything was taken care of. I was never stressed or worried about what her and Blake were getting or missing because they seemed to be everywhere, but subtly in the background. Now that we have gotten all of our pictures back (SUPER QUICKLY, I might add!) They didn't miss a single detail. We have wonderful pictures of us, family, wedding party, our guests, and our reception fun! Kelsi may be newer to the photography business, but because of her heart for her clients and her work- you would never know it! So absolutely YES we would recommend Kelsi to be your photographer. No matter what you imagine, she will do her best to make it happen! Thank you again for a perfect experience and best of luck to you and your GROWING business!"
"Kelsi photographed my wedding at Kempker's Back 40, and it rained ALL day during the scheduled picture times at our outdoor venue. However, Kelsi and her assistant remained calm, cool, and collected the entire time as she had back up plans ready to go! Kelsi was very sweet and professional the entire time. She makes you feel comfortable and confident during the session. I would highly recommend her. Kelsi even has my husband reviewing top notch for her (see below) and he DOES NOT like taking pictures!"
"I'm not much of a picture guy but I just want to say how much I loved Kelsi on Hannah and I's big day! She was efficient, sweet and took some mighty fine pictures! If you are thinking about this lady to be a part of whatever is going on in your life, I would HIGHLY recommend!"
"There are not enough words to describe how wonderful Kelsi is! Not only are our pictures more than we could have hoped for, but our whole experience was as well! She was the perfect pick for our special day! She constantly works hard to capture every moment and make your pictures so unique and special to you. She truly goes above and beyond for her passion! God blessed us so much with Kelsi and her talents!"
