the kelsey dawn client

My clients are joyful and authentic. They value love, simplicity, and human connection.

I have a distinctive style and I understand that it may not be for everyone. Shooting with couples that share the same values that I do is everything to me. I am a lover of light and precious, unrepeatable moments. I believe that we’re here to experience and enjoy this very moment that’s here in front of us and to live life fully and honestly.

“The most memorable weddings reflect the couple’s personalities from start to finish.”

- Darcy miller

Each gallery holds treasured memories that my clients will look back on fondly forever.

When you look back at your wedding gallery or family photos in 10, 20, or even 50 years, will you still love them? Creating timeless images is something that I’m passionate about. One of the ways we achieve this is by mixing film photography in with the digital. Film photography has always inspired my work and now it’s the medium that I focus on most. Film has a nostalgic and classic feel all at once and, in my opinion, makes everything look like a beautiful painting.

frequently asked questions

You photos feel candid, does this mean you don't pose people?

I totally pose my clients! I love to capture candid and authentic moments but I will guide you into that throughout the photo session. Authenticity will be the overall feel of your images but I do get the smiling at the camera shots, too! 

I have inspiration Pinterests boards for just about everything! If you don’t know what to wear to your session, shoot me an email or text and I’ll give you some advice. I love being able to match an outfit to the location!

What do I wear to my session?

Your images will be delivered in an online gallery where you can view, share, download, print, and purchase products from.

How will I receive my images?

For family and engagement sessions, three weeks. For weddings, six weeks.

What is your turnaround time?

It's important to note that NONE of my clients are models. It’s my job to make sure you’re comfortable. Just remember to relax and have fun! It’s gonna be a great time. 

What if I'm so awkward in front of the camera?

Definitely! Ask about my travel rates.

Do you travel?

Yes! You will receive high-resolution images from your wedding or session to print, and I actually encourage it! Please print them. Hold them. Gift them.

Will I be able to print my images?

I recommend picking a location that is special to you whether that be in your home, in your yard, on your family’s land, or at the coffee shop that you met your spouse. We can work together to find the perfect spot for you!

Where should we have our session at?

We love getting your emails and learning more about you and what you are looking for in your wedding photographer. We are here to answer any questions you may have and make the process simple and fun!

Let's make magic happen.
