Growing up being creative was in my nature, although I wasn't dreaming of becoming a photographer, I always took pictures and enjoyed scrapbooking as a way to preserve my own memories. Never did I imagine I would create a meaningful career of doing that for others! Being able to capture the joy of two people in love has in turn brought joy into my life as well. I thank god often for the opportunities for travel memories I can cherish and the amazing couples he has brought into my life through photography.
It's very important to me that my clients get to know who's behind the lens in order to feel comfortable and confident in my ability to capture them beautifully! The best photos are forged with authenticity and personal connection. So here I am to lay out everything about me on the web. Do we have anything in common?
I like to consider myself an old soul, full of passions and dreams that I'm just burning inside to accomplish. I'm not soft-spoken, I love fun, and energy, and bold! You may look at me and see a savvy city girl, which is probably because I love fashion, but nature calls me in all aspects, and surprisingly I feel the calmest near geothermal areas like volcanoes. As I travel, I feel like I've found new a missing piece of myself, and that feeling is so invigorating. A few hard moments in life has taught me the meaning of family and to value my time with them, along with how precious the unconditional the love my fur-baby is. It's not always easy, but being selfless for them is more rewarding than anything of monetary value.
My college love who entered the military 8 years into our relationship. We were pretty much inseparable until then. He's a bit feisty and shy but would ultimately give you the shirt off his back. He enjoys working on Helicopters and hope to be a pilot.
The newest addition to our family! We adopted Shamus from a food-market rescue shelter in Incheon, Korea while stationed in the country for a short time. He's a beautiful Malamute boy who is the most loving big-baby and has plenty of energy to play all day
The sweetie pie to melt your heart. Kora is a red husky female with mesmerizing blue eyes. She became part of our family just after I graduated college. She loves to run for days but ultimately if she had a favorite kind of day I think she would agree with
I'm obsessed with love.

"We hired Kelsey as our wedding photographer and she was incredible. From her professionalism, warmth, clear direction for group shots, to my also never knowing where she was during the ceremony as she was so discrete and never in the way. She also felt like a part of the family! Our photos, the online gallery, the photo album and the prints are STUNNING. We HIGHLY recommend her for any event you have."
"Come day of the wedding I was extremely impressed with Kelsey. She was there allllll day. And when I was thinking of last minute photos I wanted she didn’t bat an eye. we finally got the photos and I was STUNNED! I don’t know what magic wand Kelsey used. But, I’ve never taken a good photo in my life. My husband said I looked like a princess. Well, in these photos he’s not wrong. I’m obsessed with them. I really could not be happier with everything she photographed that day and her positive attitude."
"Can't say enough good things about Kelsey! She's a definite professional. Kelsey was wonderful the entire time. We had such a hot day and she didn't let it stop her! She went above and beyond to make sure we got all of our desired shots. The photos she took captured everything just perfectly and I would definitely recommend her!! "
"I cannot express how grateful I am to have hired Kelsey for my wedding. I hired her last minute after another photographer cancled on me and from day one she was an absolute gem to work with. If you want complete peace of mind that your wedding photos will turn out better than you could ever imagine, then you're only option is to go with Kelsey! My husband and I could not be happier with the photos, and Kelsey was extremely easy to work with. It honestly felt like she was just another one of our friends."
"Kelsey is such an amazing photographer and person! I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for amazing pictures without breaking the bank! She was so helpful and made the whole day go so smoothly. She captured all of the pictures I wanted and more! They are all BEAUTIFUL and I can’t stop looking at them! The editing is gorgeous on them all! I will definitely have her do pictures for us in the future."
"If Kelsey's portfolio is the feel you're going for, pick her! Her descriptions, portfolio and communications are exactly what will be delivered on and after your wedding day. Fast and clear communication, accurate descriptions, clear contract, great value for the price. So happy with the quality of photos and the album that is included in the price. Kelsey felt like a natural part of our wedding day, making us comfortable during the portrait section and skillfully capturing moments throughout the rest of the day. Kelsey felt like one of the guests while capturing better photos than we could have asked for. If you're looking for natural light photos, this is especially for you! I am a pale ginger so it's difficult to find someone who can make me look like me (no blowing out, not seeing eyebrows, or fake tan application). However, Kelsey captured beautiful photos with skill and precision. So happy with our choice and would recommend to anyone."
"Kelsey was amazing to work and made me and my husband instantly feel comfortable. We really appreciated how she consulted with us and took the time to get to know us. Our wedding day went so smoothly and our guest kept asking where we found her. The quality of the photos exceeds our expectations!!!! I highly recommend working with Champagne and Pearl."
