I am a natural light photographer dwelling in the beautiful state of Pennsylvania but to satisfy my wanderlust I dream about traveling the world photographing people in love. I have a BFA in photography and am proud that I learned on film, spending countless hours in the darkroom.

My work can be described as light and romantic, organic and ethereal, luminous and lovely. In my photos I love the light right before the sun sets, the soft romanticism between a bride and groom and the juxtaposition of a bride in an unexpected location. It is very likely that I may make you climb a tree in your wedding dress.

Whether you decide to exchange your vows barefoot in a field, get married on the banks of a tree covered river, throw a huge wedding bash in a barn, elope and get sushi or anything and everything in between- I love experiencing and photographing exactly what a wedding day means to each one of my unique clients.

When I am not creating photos you can probably find me drinking craft beer at a local brewpub, getting lost in the woods or shopping on FreePeople.com. One day I will travel the US on a motorcycle, live in a cabin in the woods and actually learn to cook instead of just making burnt messes in the kitchen.

Want to know more? Let’s grab a beer or a coffee and get to know each other! I can’t wait to hear from you!

xoxo, Kelsey
