Your way.

Your dream day.

feels like you

Your love story is the greatest adventure you will embark on. Your wedding should be an adventure too, and feel like YOU.

That's what I'm for: the days that are genuinely, authentically yours. Because here's the thing that got lost somewhere: your wedding day is about your commitment to marriage, to each

other. It's not about who your grandma can and can't sit by at the reception and how drunk your uncle will get at the open bar and whether or not the garter toss is a must-do.

We'll spend your day with the two of you focused on each other -- that's how it really should be.

Now tell me about you

Hi! I'm Kelsey. I call Indiana home, but caught the travel bug when I studied abroad in Tanzania while attending school at Purdue. (Boiler Up!) I'm passionate about helping you curate a day that feels like you, that you can remember forever as a great adventure.

If you need someone to give you permission to buck the trends and go for what feels real, hi. It's me.

Because your wedding should...

Reflect who you are and what you value the most.

Whether that's a great hike, quality time together in the form of a picnic at the base of a mountain, cuddles with your dog, or a cozy bonfire to spend the evening with your family.

Be free of expectations and pressure.

Because traditions are great and all -- if they feel like you. You're not under pressure to do a garter toss if you don't want, avoid each other before the ceremony, or have a cake.

Show the magnificence of the commitment you're making.

This is a fantastic, lifelong love you're committing to! That's amazing, and your day should reflect the importance of that in whatever way feels like you.

Be fun, relaxing, and the best day of your life.

No stuffiness here. I'll help you create a timeline that has everything you want: time with each other, moments to catch your breath and enjoy yourselves

So what is an elopement?

And your family and friends can come, too!

Your wedding, your way.

Eloping doesn't mean running away to get married in secret! It's not a secret at all (unless you want it to be!) and it doesn't have to mean just the two of you, either. Bring your parents. Bring your siblings, your best friends, your dog.

Eloping is for those who don't see themselves in the trend and obligation of a big traditional wedding.

Because big weddings aren't for everyone. Heck, they're not even for MOST people. If you value experiences over things, adventure over tradition, you might see yourself more in an elopement. Woo!!

Eloping means that we build an intimate ceremony focused on your love story, a day that offers epic experiences you'll remember for a lifetime.

Kelsey is UNBELIEVABLY GREAT! AND one of the nicest human beings on the planet. If you are looking for the perfect photographer with, in my opinion, the BEST eye for photographs and sweet moments, LOOK NO FURTHER! ... The day after our wedding, WHICH SHE DROVE 600 miles to be at!!! she sent us a sneak peek of a few photos... Bottom line, she’s amazing!

Kelsey has been absolutely amazing to work with, especially as we have had to navigate many changes because of COVID-19. She is so sweet and talented, and it is clear that she LOVES the work she does! Our pictures turned out amazing - I can't recommend her enough!

Kelsey was such a wonderful, stress-free, talented option for a photographer... I LOVED how our pictures turned out - edited so beautifully and I really felt like she captured the beauty and love that I think of when I think back on the big day.

How it Works


Although just being honest, I'm more of a hot chocolate person. I'm so excited to hear about how you met and fell in love, and what's next in your story!

Let's get to know each other and decide what will make your day really feel like you.

Every love is different, so of course weddings aren't one size fits all. I'll help you explore location options, experiences, and can connect you with area vendors. If you're local to the Midwest, we'll meet up for an engagement session too.


Now my expertise really kicks in: I'll help you build a timeline that not only gives you the best photo time, but also lets you hang with each other and take it all in as much as possible.


This is the day you've been planning for, the best day yet, the start of a new chapter in your grand adventure. I'm SO excited to celebrate with you.
