I am so pumped for you! Hey. I'm Kelsey, and I married my best friend two years ago. I'm an elopement and wedding photographer in Lafayette, Indiana, traveling all over the world for love.

I'm here for the couples who are more excited about their marriage than their wedding, who know that a little dirt on the dress just means it's part of a grand and adventurous love story, and that if the cake collapses on itself it still tastes just as good. If that sounds like you, we're already friends.

I'm here to tell your love story.

so you're gettin' married

My work is primarily photojournalistic in style. I adore capturing formal portraits and bouquet tosses and everything else, but my favorite moments are the unique, unposed ones that might otherwise go missed: your niece with frosting on her face, the laughter of your grandma, the quiet look you and your sweetheart share, the tear that makes its way down your dad's face during your vows. Those raw, unposed seconds are fleeting, and that's where emotion is richest for me.

In editing, I love golden and glowy tones, deep shadows, rich black and whites, and authentic colors. I'm all about light and movement and the real laughter between you two.

my philosophy

On top of being an elopement and wedding photographer, I'm also a writer, hiker, Christian, mountain climber, The Office watcher, and wife. My husband and I travel a lot. I don't like seafood and I can't roll my r's, but I can rap some old Gwen Stefani.

When I got engaged, there was a running joke in my family that I'd find a way to photograph my own wedding. I couldn't do that, but I can photograph yours like it's my own. I believe your wedding is about your commitment to one another, and there's nothing I love more than a story that is true to you. I love getting to play a part in capturing your story, wherever you might need me.

Kelsey is great! Our pictures are amazing and I cannot stop looking at our gallery! My husband doesn't like having his picture taken and made a comment that Kelsey made it seem so natural that he didn't feel like anyone was even taking our picture. From our engagement session, to our wedding day, she did not disappoint!

Kelsey was absolutely incredible! She is so professional, organized and also so caring ... she captured the most precious elements of our wedding that we can cherish always with our gorgeous pictures! We feel so fortunate that we hired her.

Kelsey took the most beautiful pictures on my wedding day. She was so skilled and things ran smoothly, every picture I received is beautiful. The day after my wedding I had a handful of pictures she already had ready for me. She is so genuine and I could not have found a better photographer for my wedding! I can’t wait to work with her again in the future.
