Please use the form below to connect with Champagne & Pearl to inquire about your session. Office booking hours are Monday - Friday, 6 PM - 10 PM, responding within 24 business hours.
There are no additional fees associated if the need to reschedule or move your wedding date comes up. It's always a good idea to first see what open dates the photographer currently has in your new timeframe, before committing to another date with the other vendors. If the new date is over a year out and overlaps a price increase, you will need to pay the new package price unless your held date can be filled.
The engagement session will not change the package price, and is not recommended passing on, as it aims to help prepare you for the wedding day photos, as well as it being a less time-sensitive moment to get comfortable in front of the lens with me.
Yes, packages will include a second shooter for either partial or full hours of the wedding day, and can also be booked for additional time per hour.
The second shooter is a trusted professional chosen by Champagne&Pearl who we trust to properly shoot in a way to match our style.
Yes, only after the non-refundable deposit is paid, you are able to make any individual payments you wish up to two weeks before the wedding date, which when the final balance must be paid in full. If you need a reminder every so often, I'd be happy to automate email reminders for you to best manage the payment to your preference.
Basic sessions like an engagement shoot typically take between 2-3 weeks from the date of the session. For weddings, a sneak peak of about 10 images are sent within two days of the wedding, and then in 4 weeks you receive your full online gallery link.
I take photos using (2) Canon DSLR, full-frame professional cameras with prime lenses, at various focal lengths and low 1.4 apertures. I also use external flashes for dark environments when needed, typically during receptions or in low-lit churches.
"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."
