What a love story & the start of a journey you are creating together. I desire deep within my heart to make your wedding everything you've been dreaming it would be. I want to help you treasure this season of life that will be remembered for many generations to come.
Hi, I am Kelsey.
I am a wife, a mother to 3, and a full time business owner. I have always had a passion for photography but didn't start to developing my creative side until I picked up a professional camera in 2014. I've always been a Type A personality - go getter, a lover of checking off the to-do list, organized, and bold. I tell you these things because as a wedding photographer, you not only need to be creative but a person that will make your day run smoothly, have a plan, & be able to overcome anything.MORE ABOUT ME
Before The Wedding
I'd love to meet you face to face! I so desire to know you & your story and that can only happen in person or FaceTime if you live outside of Abilene or San Angelo! We will meet a few times before your wedding. We go over the wedding timeline together. This is the most important thing to me! If you have a wedding coordinator they are in charge of everything but the schedule of photos. That is what you & I plan, and we do it together! Making your day exactly how you want it + making it run smoothly so the day of the wedding you have no worry in the world! We do so much planning before hand and all my brides are so thankful to feel confident walking into their wedding day!
Every package comes with an engagement session!! Yes, even if you've had a friend offer to take them for free. I'll explain why. This is our first time to really spend together & get comfortable together so that the wedding photos will be the best quality they can be. You get to know me & I get to know ya'll as a couple. How you interact together, how you are in front of the camera, & how I am behind the camera. We build trust together! I love to give direction during this session + make it so much fun. I've often found engagement session is your first time behind a professional camera. So we include an engagement session with every wedding!
During The Big Day
Before the actual wedding day gets here, we have spent so much time together!! This day you are confident in me, trust me to run your wedding day & make it go so smoothly. I know exactly what you are expecting and what all your heart desires because of the time invested together! This day we celebrate your marriage with no worry because all the time we spent planning this day out together! Ya'll get to begin your forever future together & I am so thankful to have been a small part of it! Because of my type a-ness I make sure things get done & can handle anything that might come up + be able to overcome it!
After It's Finished
Within the first week you will have a preview of your photos! I try to finish by the time you will return from your honeymoon. This could look like a blog post, social media post, or delivered straight to your email. After a wedding I'm SO excited to dive into the photos. At a typical wedding we take thousands of photos so I go through each photo and decide which ones are the best ones - this takes a lot of time. I then import into my editing software & start editing away. We go through tons & tons of 'final cuts' to decide which ones will make the final gallery. I tell my brides for every hour I'm at your wedding you can quadruple it to figure out how much time just the editing process takes!
What are your packages?
Fill out the contact form and lets grab some coffee if you live in Abilene! If not we will jump on the phone & go over the packages and details!
How many photos do we get?
This depends on your wedding package - how many photographers are there + how many hours we are there! This is typically anywhere from 500 - 1,000 professionally edited photos. I do deliver all color & the same photos in black & white as well.
Are the digital photos included?
Yes! Your photos are delivered on our online platform. You are able to share with friends & family with a custom link. You can download individual photos to your phone & the entire gallery to a computer!
How long will it take to get the photos?
Depends on your package! How many photographers + the amount of hours. Within three months is the latest!
What is your price range for photo & video?
Our wedding packages are in the $2-$4k range! Depending if you want photo, video, or both!
Why should I hire a professional for my wedding?
It's true but you get what you pay for when it comes to photography & video. You might know a friend that takes good photos BUT that doesn't mean they can capture all the important moments of your day perfectly. Before I even shot my first wedding I shadowed under a professional award winning wedding photographer for months. I put so much time into a wedding that it goes way beyond just having a nice camera.
Full Wedding Related Galleries
Please make sure you view these wedding related galleries!! Before you book ANY photographer, I recommend you ask for full galleries. You need to see their work in every aspect of a wedding day. It's not all about the photos that people highlight on social media!
“Kelsey was absolutely fabulous to work with! I knew from our first phone call that I had to work with her. Her attention to detail & planning helped make every step of our day seamless & perfect. She has such an incredible eye & her photos capture so much life. Our day would not have been as perfect without her. From keeping us on schedule and guiding us through photos. I mean just look at the pictures they take - I am just in awe of how beautiful they all are! Andrew and I will forever love these photos!”
Thank you for taking the time to consider us to capture one of the most important days thus far in your life! These photos you will pass down for many generations & we desire to create timeless memories that you will cherish forever. My wedding photos are hung throughout my home almost 10 years after my wedding & now my children get to see mommy as a bride!
