wild + windswept

I'm Kelsey, and my favorite moments are the wild + windswept ones.

I'm a storyteller, and I've built my life around capturing real, raw, unfiltered emotions. If we work together, be prepared to get barefoot (maybe), be a little bit adventurous (definitely), and laugh a lot (probably at me).

Though I'm based in Lafayette, Indiana, I specialize in photographing elopements and small weddings worldwide. I know that love can take you anywhere, and I'm down for wherever your story takes you -- whether that’s the Nevada desert, a Serengeti safari, the top of Mount Rainier, or exploring your family farm just down the road. Can't wait to meet ya.

Good, because that's what you deserve.

Dreaming of a day true to you?

And that's what I'm here for -- to be your cheerleader in curating a day that just screams the two of you. Because honestly, big weddings aren't for everyone. Heck, they're not even for most people. Your love story is anything but average and traditional, and your wedding should reflect that.

That's why I specialize in small wedding and elopement photography -- rich stories of love made up of cozy interactions. A morning hike to say your vows at the top of a stunning trail in Washington with your dogs. A sunset ceremony with your family before cracking a cold one and dancing in your cabin in Colorado. I'll see you there.

If that sounds awesome, let's talk.

The more hiking, gravel roads, and unpredictability, the better! We've made it a huge part of our lives to explore new places together.

I'm an expert at finding the most beautiful, off-the-beaten path places. And I'm Always down for a Jeep ride.

I  first fell in love with traveling when I studied abroad in Tanzania and Kenya, east Africa, in undergrad. I taught English in a rural secondary school, volunteered with a conservation group working to protect elephants in Tsavo National Park, and camped out on the Serengeti during a four-day safari. That was the spark. And from there it all snowballed and I couldn't stop going.
