Bold. Dramatic. Candid.

Ready to have a ton of fun at your wedding!? I can't wait to be there every step of the way!

Not sure how to pose or do you feel a little awkward in front of the camera? That's ok! I am typically a candid shooter; simply capturing your day as it unfolds. When it does come time to pose you, you can expect clear direction and a good laugh to create the most natural "you" portraits possible. 

My style is bold, candid & dramatic. I love emotional black & white moments, hilarious dance floor fun, & dramatic portraits that will take your breath away. My goal is for your wedding portraits to be the best documentation of your day possible.

After all, your photography is THE wedding investment that is truly forever.

Hey there! I'm Kelly!

A slightly eccentric coffee addict with a camera

I truly believe that your wedding IS one of the best days of your life, or at the very least, the biggest & best party you'll ever throw! Your wedding is that one day when all of your family and friends are together in one place . . . and that is something that rarely happens!

I am your typical artist with an eclectic soul, night-owl tendencies, and the ongoing drive to create something beautiful. My sense of humor and coffee addiction are the two things that have always kept me moving through this busy life of mine. I love all things wedding, my awesome clients and challenging myself to create something new and different every time my camera is in my hand.

More about me

More about me

Not going to lie, I'm kind of a nerd.

I love reading non-fiction, watching documentaries and I play the clarinet. My family and my three dogs are where my heart lives. I also enjoy listening to music, eating amazing food, traveling, & drinking way too much coffee. 

I actually never set out to be a photographer. It took me awhile to find photography and it took me even longer to find myself . . . but somehow, 9 years ago I ended up with a DSLR camera as a college graduation gift from my parents. Ever since that day, my life truly had purpose.

I've studied with many nationally recognized photographers and I'm constantly investing in education to exceed my clients' expectations.  This coming March I will be traveling to Bali, Indonesia to study with two of the best in the world, Erika & Lanny Mann of Two Mann Studios. I literally cannot wait!

I also hold a BA in Music Education & Special Education from Saint Ambrose University. I taught middle school for several years while building my photography business. I truly loved teaching, but nothing could hold me back from the powerful pull of what sets my soul on fire.
