About Me

I'm Kelsie (and this is my horse Dolly). I was born and raised in the Willamette Valley in Oregon and now live in Austin, TX with my dog, my giant rabbit, and 3 chickens. I have been a photographer for 6 years and have absolutely fallen in love with it. I love incorporating elements of light, earthy textures, and warm sunset vibes.

I don't pose. I follow a process called directing, where instead of telling you to "tilt your head a little to the right", I'll have you slow dance, run through the sand, cuddle up into a ball and get real close, etc... I really do live for candids as they are the best way to really show the real and authentic you. All in all, that's really my ultimate goal: I want your photos to show your style, your heart, your adventurous soul, and I want you to be able to look at them years from now and feel exactly what you did in that moment. Don't worry though, we will get your standard photos too!

At the end of the day, these are your photos, telling your unique love story. That's what it's all about.

What to Expect

am I the right photographer for you?


It's always good to make sure you know what you're getting into when you hire a photographer, no matter if you've hired one ten times or none at all. It's super important to make sure you and I will be a good "fit" so that you have the best experience possible! If you're looking for a photographer to just show up and hide off to the side, that's totally okay!! I'm just probably not the photographer for you. The best way to know if we're a good fit is to actually chat!!! SO...

tell me more about you
