Photographing authentic love stories
Charleston, SC & Worldwide 

- Pablo Neruda 

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you directly without problems or pride:
I love you like this because I don’t know any other way to love,
except in this form in which I am not nor are you,
so close that your hand upon my chest is mine,
so close that your eyes close with my dreams.

               Hey Friends!
We're Kelsey and Dave, and we're so excited to meet you! You'll find we're pretty simple, we both live for togetherness and authentic connection. We're not into "cheesy" (although Dave is the king of cheesy smiles at a camera!), but we do like to consider ourselves a 'refined' sort of nerdy. If this sounds like you, and you like pizza (Dave's criteria), you might be in the right place. 

Meet Us

I'm obsessed with photographing authentic, life and light-filled weddings for refined couples who love quality...and a bit of an edge. 
Some quick "facts" about me: 
1. My #1 fav is  my bearded, broad-shouldered man. I think his #1 is pizza. (he'd give me a close second) 
2. Hot chai-tea lattes are fabulous on cold mornings
3. If I had to choose one drink for the rest of my life it'd be red wine - Malbec or Cabernet to be specific. 
4. I'm 6' tall, grew up riding horses, and was the oldest of 4 girls!  

Kelsey

We met in an Olive Garden (we worked there...), fell in love in an irish pub (we also worked there...) and started our lives together in while (you guessed it) working...this time in a modular manufacturing company (I was VP, he was graphic design and marketing).  
We love our time together - and some of our favorite things to do are travel (anywhere, we LOVE exploring), geek out on anything old...we LOVE museums and old architecture, hike, rock climb, brunch with our family, and play with our little hound dog (Briar)

 We absolutely believe that life is about living in togetherness and sharing real moments...so for us it is vital that your wedding day, engagement session, or even just portrait session is fun, relaxing (yes...we really believe it's possible!) and authentic to you.
Our approach to photography is centered on connection. Every relationship is a story - from the first glance, to "I do", to the milestone anniversaries and lifetimes together. We are honored when we're chosen to be part of yours. 
Our photography style is journalistic, light, and authentic. On your wedding day we will be there beside you, capturing the moments as they happen so your story will remain, and the moments will live forward as your legacy.

Investment

We love when we are able to connect with couples who have the same values and goals as we do. We understand that our approach is not for everyone, and we love that. It is more important to us that we are the RIGHT fit for our couples than it is for us to be a fit for everyone. 
Our couples are honest, value authentic relationships, love adventuring together and creating memories, and want to create a wedding day (and live) that is true to THEM. They appreciate quality over quantity, and they surround themselves with people and things that bring them joy, and make these choices with mindfulness. 
We are inspired by deep relationships, timeless style, European and historic architecture, new experiences and epic nature. Hiking up a mountainside, standing waist-deep in the ocean, or standing on an amazing overlook (whether it's over a city, or a cliff overlooking an amazing view in nature) sound like adventures we want to live in! 

How truly wonderful it is when the 
right people work together. 

Our Couples

I cannot begin to describe how ecstatic I am that we came across Kelsey! Not only is her work amazing (I’m so in love with our pictures 🥰), but her personality is the best! She is such a fun-loving, outgoing, and down to earth lady! She was extremely accommodating, passionate, and definitely made my stress melt away. Did I mention how in love with our photos I am??? She truly is an artist!!!!

Thank you so so much!"

"We are SOOOO in love!

Kelsey is so incredibly talented, friendly and an absolute pleasure to work with. Amongst the craziness of wedding planning, she brought me a sense of calm and reassurance (and even one of my bridesmaids commented how she made us feel like we were in good hands on wedding day!) She was an absolute pleasure to work with and captured our special day so beautifully. I can't recommend her enough!!

BEAUTIFULly !"
