DYNAMIC COVERAGE +

AN ARTFUL EYE

Seeking out the energy and vibrancy of each moment, we capture photographs with personality and emotion. From candid shots to carefully composed scenes and details, our coverage is as dynamic as your story. 

HOLDING SPACE

For me, photography is more than a click. It is the art of holding space—a canvas where moments breathe, emotions unfold in their truest form, and where warmth, humor, and joy intertwine to reveal the most genuine and beautiful scenes.

Whether gently guiding or quietly observing, I bring a bubbly energy and deep respect to every space I enter. My mission is to share with clients and their loved ones the incredible magic I see in them—the beauty of their quirks, the tenderness in their gestures, and the joy in their laughter. It’s in capturing these unique qualities that the true essence of a moment is preserved, creating a collection of images that reflect the genuine and extraordinary nature of each person and the atmosphere and details of every occasion.

I cherish the unexpected joys of a wedding day, as they often lead to the most extraordinary and authentic art.

MORE ABOUT ME

Kelsea’s eclectic background include photography for non-profit organizations and fashion photography, from supporting children’s art programs in schools to star-studded galas. Through these pursuits, she unearthed her true artistic calling—capturing love and life’s fleeting moments. Kelsea uses a mixture of film and digital mediums to tell dynamic stories across the globe with refined imagery infused with playful creativity.

Kelsea planted roots in the Central Coast of California, a region intertwined with her childhood memories spent in Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez Valley. Kelsea resides with her husband/partner of 13 years and their beloved dog in a quaint 1918 cottage riddled with all the antiques she can find.

Beyond capturing weddings, she immerses herself in other artistic endeavors, such as mixed media painting and sculpture in her backyard studio. Her zest for life extends to travel and teaching yoga (a synchronicity highlighted after many past brides told her she has the perfect soothing ‘yoga voice’).

Her journey stands as a testament to her profound appreciation for authentic connections—a celebration of love, life, belly laughter, and embracing the richest expressions of ourselves. Kelsea’s commitment is clear: to witness and illuminate the beauty she sees in your story.

“Kelsea is such a talented, lovely, and warm soul!

She went way above and beyond, in preparation, time and effort. Her calm, encouraging demeanor immediately put us at ease. I love her editorial style, she made me look and feel like a model out of a magazine. When I walk by our wedding photos in our home, I smile every time because of Kelsea’s incredible work. “

We don’t know how you do what you do, but it is pure magic. You found beauty in every moment.

We wish we could formulate a proper and worthy response to describe our emotions when looking through the gallery. You went above and beyond any expectation and captured every detail in the most dreamy way. This is how we wanted to remember our day.

We knew you were the perfect match as soon as we found you, but we can’t tell you how incredible this entire process has been.
Thank you for sharing your carefree and happy spirit with us. Thank you for sharing your otherworldly talents. We will cherish these for our entire lives. Every photo is a dream come true. From the bottom of our hearts : Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!

ALL WE CAN SAY IS-
JAWDROPPING

We got the photos and we never in a million years think we would have been able to look this way on camera. And we have never been more emotional going through photos. I cried all over again. Thank you thank you thank you for being such a talent and seeing us in a way that is artistic and genuine.

Your work has brought us and our families great joy. This is such an amazing treat to have for the rest of our lives. We can’t wait to see you again!

You made me (and everyone) feel so amazing, gorgeous, special, and excited about every little moment!

You truly are just magic… a creative Godsend. I love not just your work, but how your positive energy infected our day.

I’ve never felt more beautiful, and a lot of that was just because of how much you genuinely loved capturing our wedding. With each stream of light, you got more excited, and it made us feel like we were shooting the cover of Vogue. And it was just “us”. . . An incredibly special experience. Thank you times a million!

PLANNER TESTIMONIAL

Kelsea takes the time to understand our couples, delivering a wedding album as unique as they are. Their personalities and love story shines through her artistry, and she knows how to create a comfortable environment for the most genuine, raw moments to shine. She always thinks ahead of how to make the process as seamless as possible and fun ways to go above and beyond. I love collaborating with Kelsea and getting to surprise our clients with one of a kind moments.

As a planner, I’m only as good as my team, and Kelsea is exceptional. She arrives early, stays late if needed, and ensures no detail is missed. I never have to find Kelsea and check in with her but instead she finds me and make sure that I have everything that I need and that the clients have no additional request or concerns. She is always on schedule which is huge in the wedding world and flows so perfectly throughout the day. Her fun vibe puts everyone at ease, and she seamlessly integrates into the day, always capturing moments without being intrusive.

I feel like my biggest recommendation can come from who I use on a personal level. Kelsea has captured special moments for my family since my children were babies, forming a bond that makes family pictures magical. She captures classic portraits but what truly amazes me are the unique moments and outtakes that she captures, moments I want to remember for years to come. Same goes for her wedding galleries. I know that in 5. 10. 20 years these are the memories I would want to look back on.

If you’re looking for a photographer who is classic yet epic, look no further than Kelsea. You’ll never regret hiring her. What you might regret is going with someone else! Kelsea’s ability to make everyone in the room feel at ease sets her apart. Her approach feels effortless and her work speaks for itself. She is a true artist and professional in every sense of the word.
