YOUR wedding photos

I am passionate about documenting love stories and giving clients a way to pass their story down for generations. 

I cannot wait to capture your story.

Now that you're planning your big day, "wedding photographer" is probably high on your list (and probably why you ended up here in the first place). But let me tell you why this decision should be so much more than a crossed off item in your Wedding Planner.

A wedding photographer should not only be in charge of capturing the images you'll show your grandkids one day - but also your biggest cheerleader from your engagement session to your big day to designing the album you'll cherish forever.

You don't have to figure this all out on your own. You deserve a photographer that will help you make the most of this incredible day: from timeline guidance to make sure you don't miss a single important shot to vendor recommendations so you have the best of the best helping to create the day of your dreams. And of course - someone who helps you get those dreamy images into your hands and not just on a hard drive somewhere.

Pop the bubbly -
You’re engaged!!!

I cannot say enough great things about Kelsey. She has been so sweet and so incredibly easy to work with.


I'm Kelsey. I love cold brew coffee, stroller walks with my tiny tot, and binge watching early 2000s teen dramas (lookin' at you, Veronica Mars). And most importantly? I love telling stories. Specifically, love stories. I am passionate about documenting my clients love from start to finish, and giving them a way to pass their story down for generations.

Are you ready to get your dream wedding photos? 

this is where I come in 

we might be a great fit if...

Your engagement session is such an important part of your experience. I truly believe it is crucial to getting so many great bride and groom photos on your wedding day! Your engagement session gives us a chance to spend time together so we can get to know each other. Because you’ll be familiar with how I operate, we will be able to move quicker through your portraits while getting you great variety, and allowing you to spend more time with each other.

The KAP Complete Wedding Experience Guide

And to compliment the guide, there’s style and select! Style and Select is great for engagement sessions because you can actually SEE the outfits you're wanting to try together. A guide to help you look your best. A tool to help you see your outfits together before you buy them. They go hand in hand.

I love to build custom wedding timelines for my clients based on ceremony time, the sunset on a wedding day, and whether or not there will be a first look. These things change for each couple, and a cookie cutter timeline just won’t do.

man, this stuff is good




because your day isn't like anyone elses

I love to get you your photos as soon as possible, and that is where your online gallery comes in. You can download print resolution photos, save favorites, email them and share your links with loved ones. While I love printed images, I know that digital copies are so important! Now that doesn't mean that downloading them is their last stop…

but that's not all




quick access to all your photos

The story of your day, printed and bound for you to enjoy now, and to pass on for generations to come. The story of your day from beginning to end, with details, portraits, family photos and so many moments unique to your day. I think every wedding needs to be printed, and I am so excited for you to have this heirloom.

take it from the top




the perfect way to remember your day

Reserve your day

Once I’ve delivered your completed wedding gallery, we start the album design process! I design an album and then send it to you for two rounds of feedback and changes, choosing your cover options and sending it off to be printed and bound! I want you to have a wedding album you can be proud of! 

Because I love printed photos so much (my house is full of them!), this is one of my favorite parts of our process. It makes me so happy to end each wedding experience with a breathtaking, heirloom wedding album full of gorgeous photos from your day. The album tells the story of your wedding day, and my hope is that you’ll be able to share that with your future family for generations to come. 

Let's create something beautiful

I cannot say enough great things about Kelsey. She has been so sweet and so incredibly easy to work with. She flew out to Seattle to shoot our engagement photos and we had such a great time. She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. You will absolutely not regret hiring this talented lady for your photos!

Our latest session with Kelsey was just as amazing as always! We love that she always has tricks up her sleeve to get good smiles out of them...I couldn’t ask for anyone with more talent, knowledge & passion to capture special moments for my family throughout this journey called life.

Kelsey has done an amazing job at capturing my family's milestones this past year. From the moment of our first session, to now our fifth session coming up this fall, Kelsey has surpassed my expectations each and every time! She is very quick to respond, detailed oriented, and is very talented.

We absolutely loved our experience with Kelsey. We have a handful 2 year old and at every occasion she just completely embraced him he ended up loving her and her endless amounts of treats! Look forward to working with her again in the future!

She is so bubbly and sweet and made us feel very comfortable the whole session. To put the cherry on top, we got our pictures within days when we were expecting to have to wait a few weeks! The pictures are beyond words and I can’t wait to have her photograph our baby’s newborn photos once he finally gets here!
