Hi there friend! I'm Kelly, a small-town Wisconsin girl with a deep love for travel, craft beer, Fixer Upper, Jimmy Fallon, cafe mochas and warm cozy sweaters.
I'm a hybrid photographer specializing in Midwest weddings, destination weddings and senior portraits. Shooting on both film + digital mediums, my style has often been described as organic, natural, and timeless. I'm a mommy to four beautiful kids (Owen, Benjamin, Haddie & Emilia) and a wife of 5 years to my amazing husband, Ben! Standing at 4 foot 10 inches, I'm probably the smallest wedding photographer you'll ever meet, but don't let my lack of height scare you as I always have my trusty step stool with me for all weddings and portrait sessions! :)
Sometimes I think it’s crazy that my job is to capture something as beautiful as love. I’m passionate about photography because it has the power to transport us to a time and place in our lives in one image. Through a single photo you can remember exactly how you felt, the smells that surrounded you, the people who are important to you—the moment lives on forever. This is what I strive for when I’m behind the lens: to give you those perfect and memorable images that you can return to time and time again.
When I arrive on your wedding day, my goal is to capture the uniqueness of your event in the most simple and genuine way possible. I never date portraits by doing anything trendy or over the top-- just simple, awesome photos that express your true personalities! I strive to tell each couple's individual story in a way that is uniquely them-- doing so by creating authentic moments through an even mix of soft direction and photojournalism. My couples tend to share my love for natural light, breathtaking landscapes, neutral tones and gorgeous details.
While I was born and raised in Wisconsin, I travel frequently for work and life. My love for travel has taken me to locations such as California, Florida, Colorado, New York, France and Italy to capture amazing love stories. If you're planning a destination wedding I would love to be apart of it! Get in touch for a custom quote!
