hello, I’m Kelsey
I am a fine-art wedding and lifestyle photographer based out of North Alabama. Growing up at the bottom of the Appalachian mountains in a quaint, little town called Mentone, Alabama, it was easy to develop an enthusiastic love for art and, although I didn’t appreciate it as much as I should have growing up there, I can now doubtlessly give credit to the beautiful place that I call home for my passion of photography.
My photography journey is typical in the way that I grew up holding disposable cameras in my hand, taking friends outside for photo shoots, and scrapbooking everything throughout my childhood. What sets me apart now is the way that I capture authentic connection with couples and families today.
Being a fine-art photographer means capturing candid, genuine, unrepeatable moments and turning them into pieces of art that you will treasure forever. I have a unique, film-inspired style and give exquisite attention to detail. The dedication I have for my work stems from wanting to capture people in the happiest moments of their lives and preserving it as an heirloom for their children’s children. I like to consider myself a bit of a historian.
Things that I love the most:
my dog & my cat
sitting in the sun
trying new foods
watching The Office
I love when you and I have the same vision.
I have a distinctive style and I understand that it may not be for everyone. Shooting with couples and families that share the same values that I do is everything to me. I am a lover of light and simplicity. We’re here to experience this very moment that’s here in front of us and to live life fully.
WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?
For family and engagement sessions, two weeks. For weddings, five weeks.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
I have inspiration Pinterests boards for just about everything! If you don’t know what to wear to your session, shoot me an email or text and I’ll give you some advice as well as a style guide.
DO YOU POSE PEOPLE?
Totally! I love to capture candid and authentic moments but I will guide you into that throughout the photo session. Authenticity will be the overall feel of your images but I do get the smiling at the camera shots, too!
HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES?
Your images will be delivered in an online gallery where you can view, share, download, print, and purchase products from.
WHAT IF I AM AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA?
NONE of my clients are models. It’s my job to make sure you’re comfortable. Just remember to relax and have fun! It’s gonna be a great time.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Definitely! Ask about my travel rates.
WILL I BE ABLE TO PRINT MY IMAGES?
Yes! You will receive high-resolution images from your wedding or session to print, and I actually encourage it! Please print them. Hold them. Gift them.
WHERE SHOULD WE HAVE OUR SESSION AT?
I recommend picking a location that is special to you whether that be in your home, in your yard, on your family’s land, or at the coffee shop that you met your spouse. We can work together to find the perfect spot for you!
