Hello and welcome to the KLP blog! My name is Kelsie and I'm a wedding & portrait photographer based in Columbus, Ohio. Grab a cup of coffee (or in my case - a chai latte), 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.
Last week in this series I shared why I chose to start a business in college. This week, I’m sharing the why behind my business. When I first decided that I wanted to start my business, I knew that I wanted this business to be a form of ministry. I had been poured in so much throughout college that I knew that I needed an outlet to pour out that love to others once I left this place. My faith is such a huge part of who I am as a person, and anyone who knows me would say the same. I want to love my clients with the relentless love that Jesus has for me. I want to shower them with the grace that the Lord pours over my life. I want them to find joy in their hearts like the joy that I can find through Jesus. This, my friends is the heart behind my business. When I launched this business, I kept three words in mind that described me and my brand: joyful, vibrant and genuine. On the homepage of my website you will find:
“JOY is a state of being that just radiates from our souls. It’s that happy feeling that never goes away. It’s sustainable. It’s the look of two people in love. It’s living without doubt or fear of the future. I aspire to capture the JOY on my clients’ faces in whatever stage of life they may be experiencing, whether they are a newly engaged couple, a family or a graduating high school senior.
I’ve always gravitated towards a VIBRANT editing style because it conveys the happiness and authenticity in my images. Bright colors with warm hues of greens and bright blues make your images jump off of the screen. They remind you of the way you felt the moment the image was captured, that moment of pure JOY.
I GENUINELY care about each of my clients, and I aim to capture their GENUINE and authentic feelings, stolen glances and giggly excitement. Capturing the love between two people, the way they look at each other and the small details from this special time in their lives are the reasons why I love what I do.”
Honestly, I just want to unconditionally love my clients in ways that they never have been before. I want them to feel special and loved and unique because they are! They are loved by a God who loves them more than they could ever possibly imagine. I want to provide them with an unforgettable experience that will make them feel comfortable, but ultimately beautiful.
