Capturing what makes you, you.
Just a girl on a mission to change the name of photography with real people and real moments.
9 years ago, I left the beautiful state of North Carolina, traded the beach in for the mountains and moved to the magical little bubble of Breckenridge, Colorado.
My photography journey started in 2008 all with a camera from Goodwill. I’ve photographed mountain top Weddings, Tropical Weddings, and even wild Weddings in the middle of a field. I’m here for all of it. Most days, you’ll find me snuggling my pup, Levi, dessert in hand, watching Grey's Anatomy, or googling my next backpacking trip.
hey party people, i'm kelsey!
I'm a modern, storytelling wedding photographer based in the mountains of Breckenridge, Colorado and photograph all over the world!
you may see that we do things a little differently around here.
whatever you're jazzed about, know that we're jazzed about it too.
we know the wedding industry comes with lots of fluff. its hard to know where to start and don't get me going on awkward family photos. your day matters. your time matters. Say it with me now, it's not all about the photos. (okay but it kind of is)
a brunch wedding at the beach? a big outdoor wedding in your childhood favorite place? or maybe you're getting married in your backyard with pizza and drinks and dare i say 420?
A full day to yourself?! What will you do?!
Hey Google, how do I
In 2008 I started with the ‘started from the bottom’ approach to photography with a camera from Goodwill and no idea what would happen next.
Fast forward to ‘now we’re here’ and I'm on a mission to shake things up.
The 'perfect' wedding mold of a picture perfect wedding was never my cup of tea and encourage everyone to do things the way you want to do them.
Storyteller • Fun • Real
Kelsey was so much fun to work with from the start. Her photos are amazing, she’s so fun to be around and we loved trading stories about our dogs. We live in WI and were planning a CO elopement, so Kelsey’s elopement guide was so useful. We used this guide to find our caterer, bakery, hair stylist & makeup artist and to plan our wedding day timeline. Kelsey helped to make our day everything we wanted it to be, she was so much fun and the photos turned out AMAZING. Once she sent the final gallery, we sat down with a glass of wine and were able to re-live the most wonderful day. I couldn’t believe how perfectly she captured everything.
I truly cannot say enough good things about Kelsey! Not only is she an incredibly gifted photographer, she is a storyteller. She managed to capture the essence of our wedding, from the small details to the simple moments that made it unique to us and I am instantly reliving the day whenever I look at our photos. Her photos aren't staged, they are real and genuine and beautiful. Plus, I can’t think of a better person to share our day with. She is one of the sweetest, funniest, most heartfelt people, and she will tear it up on the dancefloor with you! Seriously, book this girl. It was one of the best decisions we made!
"...I am instantly reliving the day whenever I look at our photos..."
"...the minute you meet her, you're comfortable and can let loose..."
Kelsey is an AMAZING photographer. My husband and I are so awkward and clueless when it comes to posing and taking pictures, but she is just one of those people that the minute you meet her, you're comfortable and can let loose. From the minute I began talking to Kelsey, she was professional, friendly, efficient, and so so kind. We can't wait to return to the place we got married and take family pictures with her one day! She's the BEST.....absolute BEST. Everyone we've shown the pictures to has just been amazed at how perfect the placement and setting was. They are truly perfection.
