about kelly

Hello and thank you for stopping by! I’m Kelly, a destination wedding and portrait photographer. Creating ethereal, romantic images is my goal and in doing so, I like to combine the beauty of medium format film with 35mm digital. This combination allows me to photograph quickly in low light situations with my digital equipment, but also create soft, lovely, light filled images with my film cameras.

I grew up in Michigan and after finishing high school, I moved out to California where I eventually found my home in San Francisco. Oh, how I love San Francisco. While living there, I studied all aspects of photography, 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 and began my 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 and blogs including Cottage Hill magazine, Style Me Pretty, The Knot Michigan magazine, Bridal Guide magazine, Carolina Bride magazine, The Fount Collective, Elizabeth Anne Designs, Junebug Weddings, Ruffled, Southern Weddings magazine, MyNorth Wedding magazine, Something Pretty, MSN, Today, Cake & Pictures, and many more.

Please take a look at 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!
