I believe that every moment matters. This chapter of your story, no matter the circumstances, is beautiful, and it won't be like this for long. Time is unforgiving. This moment deserves to be documented in an honest and artful way. I can preserve your love story.

I love weddings, and I'll probably cry at yours. I will. They never get old. I love every little detail of them and it’s fascinating to see the quirky little personal spins that each couple put on the tradition.

Hello & welcome! I'm Kelsey. I'm a mother, a wife, a creator, and adventurer. When I'm not curating beautiful imagery with outstanding couples and families, you can find me curled up on the couch reading a book side-by-side with my son or planning our family's next travel adventure.
