The Champagne&Pearl Experience
Marriage is one great journey you'll set out on. It challenges you to be the best version of yourself while pushing you to be the best partner for your spouse. Remember the excitement for your first date? Or the rush of adrenaline as he popped the question? Those feelings are the reason I'm a photographer. In a world full of Pinterest where everyone wants the perfect venue, dress, or cake, what really matters is the love the two of you share. Creating family heirlooms is such an honor for me!VIEW PRICING BELOW --->
The Full Experience!
WHY I'M DIFFERENT:
Planning a wedding can be a very exciting but busy time in your life. So having an extra friend to help along the way can ensure your day is unforgettable! Your wedding day is going to be the most incredible, emotion-filled and fast-paced day of your life! When you hire me as your photographer you get more then just photos, you get a friend to watch you and your dresses back, a frequent wedding goer and timeline planner to help your day go smooth, and a hassle-free experience from our first meeting continually through to the album delivery. On your day, what's important to you, is important to me; I'll take care of making sure you look amazing in your photos while you relax and have fun!
I don’t believe photography is aone-size-fits-all kind of market! Each person is unique in their own way and I strive to make every one of our sessions a fun, personalized experience like no other. I also make it simple to find those precious moments of joy during our shoots. No matter how precious or spectacular a moment is, memories can fade over time but I get to step in and say "Not this one"! All the wonderful details you planned to-a-T will be creatively documented and captured as a testament of your love.
“We hired Kelsey as our wedding photographer and she was incredible. From her professionalism, warmth, clear direction for group shots, to my also never knowing where she was during the ceremony as she was so discrete and never in the way. She also felt like a part of the family! Our photos, the online gallery, the photo album and the prints are STUNNING. We HIGHLY recommend her for any event you have.”

Do you shoot destination weddings?
Absolutely! traveling is a passion of mine therefore I'm always looking to add new places to my bucket list. Shooting a Designation wedding also makes your wedding day even more special and truely unique to you. I would be honored to be a part of that.
Will there be a second shooter?
For a typical wedding I feel the most comfortable shooting the day myself as I have a specific rutine personalized for each wedding to ensure I've captured everything desired. However, there is an option that I can hire a trusted photographer friend to help for the day. The second shooter must be approved by me and work under me as the main photographer.
Can I extend the session on the day of?
Time slots are pre-scheduled with a time limit and subject to availability. Typically all sessions allow for ample time, however If additional time is needed and there is an opening - at the photographers discretion, then yes, time can be extended. Any charges for additional time should be paid upfront.
What kind of gear do you use?
I simultaneously use two Canon brand cameras with various focal legnth low-aperture lenses. I also use external flashes for dark environments when needed, typically during receptions or in low-lit churches.
How long until I receive my edited photos?
Basic sessions allow two weeks from the date of the session. For weddings, 4 weeks for online gallery link and an additional 2 weeks for review, photo selection, album/usb creation and final delivery.
Do I have to order prints through you?
Each of my packages comes with a print release for you to print where, when, and how you desire. I do offer my own prints for purchase as well for a worry-free premium experience featuring only the best quality materials.
*Self print quality can not be guaranteed based on the shop you choose to go through. Although I can give recommendations from experience.
