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!

For the past few weeks, I’ve been praying about whether or not to share this blog post, and asking the Lord what He specifically wanted to me share with you. My sweet friend Victoria shared some heart-wrench truths with me recently, and I couldn’t help but share. Although I certainly can’t take credit for all […]

This week I celebrated my second year in business! I can’t believe that I am writing those words on the page… it seems like just yesterday that I bought a “fancy” camera  just for fun! When I bought that camera three years ago, I had no plans for a business. It’s funny how the Lord […]

As much as I love taking pictures and learning new techniques, that’s not what this whole thing is really about. It’s a lot more about the people in front of my lens rather than […]

As I kick of my 2017 wedding this season, I can’t help but be so incredibly grateful for the couples who’ve chosen me to serve them on such an important day. It is a privilege that I certainly do not take lightly. As I start each wedding season, I’d love to share a few goals for areas in which I’d…

#kelsielynnbrides are some of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. Of course, I may be a little bit biased, but it has been such a joy to work with each and every one of them over the last few years! When I think about the qualities of a #kelsielynnbride, there are way too many to count. However, if you’re recently engaged…

Although it has been a few months since I last shared a personal post about my eyes, a LOT has happened since then!! I figured that the best way to share this news was to start from the beginning. For as long as I can remember, I’ve struggled with eye problems. I’ve had double vision since I was little, but it was…

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?
