That being said, since this might be your first time, here’s what 10 years in the industry has shown me.

I want you to have the best damn day ever.

however that looks for you.

The most breathtaking wedding days make you feel like yourself with no feelings of forcing or faking it.

The traditions you choose to follow should match the energy and style you want the rest of your marriage to have (hikes under waterfalls or banquets with your family — you tell me).

Plan your wedding to be an experience, not an event. 

Recommended for family photos, child photography and maternity photos. With less posing and more play, we’ll showcase the personalities of your gorgeous fam.

“We are beyond in love with Kelli! She is an artist, a professional, a team player, a rock star, and a sweetheart. Her art is amazing and it is only made better by what a great person she is. My husband and I hired her to capture our wedding weekend and it was the best choice we made besides marrying each other. We spent a lot of time with her and honestly wish I could have hung out with her even more. The photos are incredible and she was a huge help to us both the whole weekend. Don't think twice, hire Kelli.”

"the best choice we made besides marrying each other...the photos are incredible."

As a wedding photographer, I understand the need to capture both the traditional moments and the unexpected, all-too-important experiences that take place. I’ll guide you and just let you be so your love story unfolds without any rush or interruption on my part.

If your timeline requires it with multiple locations or simultaneous events, that’s something we can address. Otherwise, I've got it covered. With 10 years in the industry, I know how to capture every element of your wedding event.

I work closely with an incredible videographer. Just let me know and we can add on videography to your photography collection! Videography pricing starts at $3,000.

My goal is always exceptional, accommodating service. That involves giving the creative process enough time to edit and deliver images that will become legacies. I invite you to focus on your new marriage while I hand-edit your wedding day collection. You can expect a turnaround time of about 8 weeks. 

answer:

When I photograph weddings, I’m saying yes and amen with you. 
And I mean it with all my heart. 

love is a grounding force.

Let’s document your love and the elements within that are daring and delicate.

say yes to adventure.
