LET'S GET PERSONAL

When I picked up a camera in 2012, I always knew that I wanted to capture stories of love, no matter what they looked like. It was as if I found my calling in life, and I wanted nothing more than to take that dream as far as I could.

Over the years, I have made it my undying mission to make your photos a work of art that has been captured and edited with the intent of allowing you to relive each moment as if you were truly there experiencing it again. I want you to remember each and every second down to the most minuscule detail.

Whether it is an intimate wedding or a lavish, traditional wedding… To me, they are more than just photographs. To me, I am capturing your forever.

SABRINA + DAVID

Kelsey is absolutely phenomenal - not just as a photographer but a person too. She was such an amazing soul to have as a part of our team - for support, encouragement, and cheer. Despite the scorching heat, she did everything with a smile on her face and no complaints. Her communication is effective, efficient, personal, and caring. What I thought would feel prescriptive, calculated, and transactional... was anything but. Spending time with her felt like being with a friend. She is absolute magic and the very best - cannot thank her enough. We will treasure these forever. I will always recommend Kelsey to anyone who wants a true professional to create a personal and truly special photography experience.

Michael + Ellen

She is such a genuine person who made our wedding better just by being there, but the icing on the cake was how jaw-dropping the photos are. We could not be happier or more impressed by her professionalism and skill. I genuinely don't think there's a photographer out there who could have done better. Thank you so much for making our day even more incredible!

"Kelsey was absolutely astounding as our wedding photographer."

Haley + Ryan

From the moment I saw her website, I knew I wanted her to be our photographer. We opted for a portrait session the evening before we exchanged vows instead of true elopement coverage the day of, but we were still absolutely blown away! Kelsey had recommendations for locations ready to go and time our session perfectly with the sunset in the Shenandoah mountains. She hiked a rock scramble for us to get breathtaking photos! Now that we have them back, I can’t stop looking at them. Ridge and Ramble is amazing!
