Now, onto the joys (or dreads) of wedding planning!
We may be biased, but your wedding photos are pretty important.
They last longer than anything else in the wedding. (We're talking generations.)
Perfect for elopements and small gatherings.

A.All images are delivered fully edited in a beautiful online gallery. We try to be sustainable, therefore, we do not offer USBs.
We average around 75 images per hour.
A.On your wedding day, you'll know us. We include an engagement session with every package, because a stranger shouldn't be next to you your whole wedding day. We are able to travel up to an hour for engagement sessions. There is a two week turnaround time. Find more information under resources!
Payments made your way
A.Payment Plans are available for ALL packages.
We've been there. A budget is a budget, but you can't put a price on the thing that makes all the other wedding expenses worth it. That's why we made it easy. You only pay $400 to reserve your date.
A.I love to see a wedding day go smoothly and on time. We will sit down and talk 2 months before the wedding to go over your timeline.
Are you a giant company with multiple photographers?
Can I trust you?
How long until I get to see my photos?
Can I give you a list of specific shots we would like?
Who will be shooting my wedding? Am I able to view your second shooter's portfolio?
Is it okay if other people take photos while you're taking photos?
Do you provide retouching or other services?
Do you have travel fees?
We are small. We don't double book days and hire out photographers. Kelsie will always be your lead photographer.
We are a legal business. No surprises there. We have insurance, backup gear, knowledge and know how.
From a pitch black room, to an unexpected tornado warning, we're prepared for everything.
My extra camera comes with me to every wedding just in case. I also have backup flash, lenses and memory cards.
Weddings have a 2 month turnaround time with plenty of sneak peeks
Smaller sessions like engagement and elopements take at max two weeks.
We want to create the photos that end up on Pinterest boards, not copy them.
If you are happy with the poses and styles you see here on my website, we're a good fit.
If you are looking for a photographer to go off of a Pinterest board, I may not be the photographer for you. We are for the bride who wants to trust us and leave it to the professionals.
That all being said, we do love wishlists, but due to the nature of the beast, cannot guarantee all shots on them.
I (Kelsie) will be the main photographer of your wedding. Depending on the package you choose, I can provide you with a portfolio of my second shooter's images! My husband Harley, and work-wife Alex have amazing eyeballs.
I know that some of the best shots are taken by friends and family. Although I will always prefer "Unplugged Weddings," I only ask that while we're doing private portraits, we only bring you and your wedding party. (Or whoever else might be on the party bus!) This gives the you guys a chance to relax and be alone with me for more intimate shots. For family posed portraits, we stay relaxed, so others can feel free to take images behind me.
I will do basic retouching if needed, but do not do major Photoshop work due to the volume of wedding photos.
If your wedding location is 2 hours or more away from Grand Rapids, we ask for a safe clean hotel room for the night of.
