You're going through an important check point in life. We've been there.
We eloped in 2016.
Our ability to work as a team in marriage benefits us when working as a team to record your marriage. (See that tongue twister?)
With years of combined photo, video, and customer service experience, you can rest easy knowing you're in good hands.

Grand Rapids is an amazing city and we're lucky to have been born and raised in it. Now we're lucky to work here every day.
We travel all over for weddings, so please don't hesitate to contact us if you're out of state!
I'm Kelsie, the Owner and Lead Photographer of Intricate Exposures.
My love for art, history and relationships fuels my passion in photography. I want to give you the best experience possible! My heart and soul goes into giving someone the same photos that I would want for myself. I like to shoot and edit in a way that will still be in style in 50 years. Not too dramatic, but still unique for you!
When I'm not working: You will find me walking around antique and thrift stores, taking midnight trips to Meijer, and treating my 3 cats like human babies. I'm a cool (cat) Mom.
He's Harley, the Lead Cinematographer and 2nd Photographer.
His love for cinema and story telling is a huge asset to us. He creates beautiful videos based on the feel of the day. He has an amazing sense of humor, which also leads us to create fun videos on our own time that make us giggle. With a keen eye towards the little things, Harley makes sure not one detail gets forgotten.
My hobbies: When I'm not working, you can find me at the gym, making small films, or cuddling with Kelsie, I also have a huge interest in woodworking and creative projects.
Kelsie started training for weddings and portraits as a high schooler. She branched into senior portraits, then self portraits.
We met in our first Photography class in college. It's fate from there.
Kelsie creates the business name of Intricate Exposures. She wants it to be recognizable and timeless. Every photo is an exposure of light. Every photo has intricate details.
Kelsie started working at a full time in a photographic printing lab until Feb. 2018.
She really starts delving into weddings, and falls in love.
Harley continued his passion for photography after college, and moved onto video as well.
We join forces to offer photo and video services full time.

"We love how much we feel she captured “us” in the pictures. Our main goal was to have fun. We wanted our photographer to capture what we feel makes our relationship magical. There is no doubt in our minds that Kelsie nailed it for us. This is one more memory to add to our adventure together and I am so thankful that Kelsie made it a great one."

"BOOK. THEM. Holy smokes, there are not even words to show how thankful I am that we had Kelsie and Harley as our photographers for our wedding and engagement photos. Intricate Exposures is pure and true talent at its finest. They have become life long friends and they were about to capture the most important day of my life. They made two camera shy people feel like a million bucks. I am forever grateful for Intricate Exposures and give them a million stars out of 5."
