I'm Kelly, an Iowa based wedding, boudoir & portrait photographer

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 photography, my awesome clients and challenging myself to create something new and different every time my camera is in my hand.

More about me...

Someone once described me as the perfect mix between Janis Joplin and Audrey Hepburn . . . 

So, if you clicked here to find out about how much I love eating croissants on a grassy bluff, you are out of luck.  I'm classy & composed when the situation calls for it, but generally you can find me staying up well past midnight  and chain-drinking coffee with sprinkles of swear words & dog hair on top. 

I quit my 9-5 as a middle school teacher in 2018 to pursue my photography business full-time. Oddly enough,  I didn't set out to be a photographer whatsoever! This journey literally started with me taking mediocre pics of my dog and deciding to advertise on Craigslist for my 'professional' photography. 😂

It's hard to believe all that was over a decade ago! Many photography classes later, I shot my first wedding in 2013 and it changed the course of my life permanently. 

I've studied with many nationally recognized photographers and I'm constantly investing in education to help expand my knowledge and exceed my clients' expectations. If we have the opportunity to work together, you will quickly learn that I take my role as a business owner and artist very seriously. I'm a stickler for sharp, crisp images, and even more of a stickler with my editing and client experience. 

If any of this resonates with you, we will absolutely be a good match. I love working with like-minded clients, because I know it will always be a good time! Thank you for reading and I hope to chat with you soon!
