MEET KELSEY

I'm a mom, wife, photographer, and animal lover.  I am obsessed with love, and even more obsessed with capturing it.  If you're a bride, be sure to send an inquiry of your date, as dates fill up quickly!  Take a look around, and let me know if you have any questions!  I can't wait to meet you!

Looking for something in particular? Here's where to start:

Hi, I'm Kelsey!

AWARD WINNING PHOTOGRAPHER in DES MOINES, IOWA

Loving Mexican food, hair in a messy bun, busy mom, laughing a lot, and my secret shame - any show on Bravo. 

what I'm known for:

I received my first camera to hold on to the memories of my son growing up, but little did I know that camera would be my one-way ticket out of my corporate job.  That single gift is the gift that keeps on giving!

My passion for photography has turned into art, and as a self-taught photographer, my love for learning never ends.  I was named Des Moines Best Photographer for 2018 by the Wedding Choice Awards, and can't wait to see where my #kobrides take me next!

I'm a girl born & raised in the Midwest, but set aside from taking photos on a gorgeous farm, you probably won't catch me on one :)

MEET KELSEY

The best part of each wedding I shoot is not the wedding itself.  It's the couples that I get to meet, know, and love.  At the end of your special day, we all feel like family...and that, I love the most.

I treat you like family.

what makes KELSEY different

I believe there is somebody for everybody, and truly believe in fairytales.  I am the one who captures your every moment of your fairytale wedding. 

I believe in love.

Every couple is planning a wedding for one reason, and that is for LOVE.  Every couple has a vision of what they want their wedding day to look like, feel like, and most of all BE like.  I am here to help make that come to life, and I am here to capture all of the hard work, time, and love that went into the planning.  

Remember, the cake gets eaten, the flowers will die, but your photographs will last forever.

If you're still reading this, you might be my kind of people...

A note from Kelsey:

"Sara was a breath of fresh air!  She was by far, the most easy-going bride I have ever had.  She wasn't going to let a little rain (or a lot!) ruin her day.  She totally embraced it and we got some good shots out of it!"

"Kelsey was incredible. So easy going, and took care of business."

A note from Kelsey:

"Samantha was one of the sweetest brides I have ever worked with.  She was absolutely stunning, and her photos turned out beautiful!  Samantha was glowing on her wedding day, and I was glad I was one to capture it."

"Kelsey was very sweet, and made me feel so comfortable."
