Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Kelsie and I'm a wedding photographer based in Columbus, Ohio. Grab a cup of coffee (or in my case - a cup of hot chocolate!), a glass of wine or a bottle of coke and enjoy viewing my latest work, browsing resources for brides and photographers, and getting a little peek into my life!
Brides, have you decided that you’re going to have a first look with your fiance on your wedding day? What a great option 🙂 If you haven’t fully decided, check out my main reasons why I always encourage creating time for a first look on your wedding day! Anyway, now that you’ve decided to do […]
One of the questions I ask all of my couples is whether or not they are going to have an exit on their wedding day. Some brides are alll about it whereas others don’t really have a preference. If you are planning your wedding this year and are considering an exit, I highly recommend them. […]
As I’m sure you know, the ceremony start time dictates the entire timeline for the day. So I’d say it’s pretty important to consider when planning out your wedding day!

Today’s blog is extra special for me because it’s not just any bridal portrait session…. it’s my sisters!!!

Instead of photographing their wedding, I was Bethany’s Maid of Honor which made for such a […]
One of the most commonly asked questions I get from both brides and photographers is, “when should we start pictures”? Well, after photographing nearly 50 weddings, I’ve learned the do’s and don’ts of wedding timelines. Do: Allow for a LOT of buffer time. If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past few years, it’s […]
This topic is such a fun one for me, because I absolutely LOVE veil shots in a wedding day! I think that veils add so much detail and interest to your wedding day gallery, and I’m always so excited to hear that one of my brides will be wearing one. Now, I know that veils […]

I may be biased, but your wedding images will be the only thing that remain once the day has come and gone. Before making such a big decision, […]
As your wedding day approaches, it’s only natural to hop on over to Pinterest to pin some of your last minute details and favorite poses for portraits. I get it, I really do! I used to be that girl, and before I even owned a camera, my Pinterest board was FILLED with photographs that I […]
A few weeks ago, I asked you, my friends and followers, to submit any questions that you had for me. Nothing was off limits, and I was so overwhelmed by the response! Both future brides and photographers reached out and it was so much fun connecting with everyone who submitted a question. At the end […]
I have just loved writing this blog series and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading it! So far, I’ve shared about how I found my passion, why I started my business, some of the struggles
You wouldn't know it if I walked past you, or possibly even if we were friends. You might not know it even if you looked me in the eye. The one thing that I rely on
I am so incredibly thankful for the creative gifts I've been given. But let's be real, I wouldn't be able to do any of this if it weren't for Jesus. Do you know why?
