Hello and thanks for stopping by! I’m Kelly. I live in Michigan and I love spring, summer, fall and sometimes winter. Some of my favorite things are my family, my cats, the smell of fresh air through a window on a summer morning, reading a good book in bed, traveling to far away places, and of course, taking photographs of people living life.

I grew up in Michigan and after finishing high school, I didn’t know what I wanted to “be when I grew up”. What I did know is that I had a strong desire to move to California. So I did. I started in Los Angeles and then found my home in San Francisco. Oh, how I love San Francisco. At some point, I got an interest in photography and decided to seriously study every aspect of it, eventually getting my BA in Photojournalism from San Francisco State University. After ten years of living on the west coast , I decided to move back to Michigan to pursue a career in wedding and lifestyle portrait photography. I’m currently located in Grand Rapids, but am more than happy to travel anywhere in the world to photograph you.

My work has been featured in local and national publications including Style Me Pretty, The Knot Michigan magazine, Cottage Hill magazine, Junebug Weddings, Ruffled, Carolina Bride magazine, MyNorth Wedding magazine, Southern Weddings magazine, Green Wedding Shoes, InFrame Bride magazine, Elizabeth Anne Designs, Something Pretty, MSN, Today, Grand Rapids magazine, Cake & Pictures, and Emmeline Bride.

Please check out my work and if my style fits with what you are looking for, I would love to have the opportunity to document your wedding or any other piece of your life! I’m always up for chatting over coffee or a glass of wine.  Contact me and we’ll make a date!
