The Heart Behind it All

April 7, 2017

What being a #kelsielynnbride means to me

#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 and looking for a wedding photographer, or just someone who’s following my work hoping to one day be a #kelsielynnbride, here are a few things that could characterize the best qualities of my brides:

  1. First of all, #kelsielynnbrides are head over heels in love with their best friends. It is so wildly evident in their interactions that their love is just over flowing. It makes my heart so happy!! Best of all, they aren’t afraid to show it!
  2. My brides are joyful, happy and so excited to marry the love of their life. I’m really intentional about creating a fun atmosphere during our sessions, so having a care-free spirit makes things go so much smoother. They love to have fun, and even the grooms have fun in front of my camera!
  3. #kelsielynnbrides value pictures, especially details, bride + groom portraits and bridal party pictures! #kelsielynnbrides are so excited about their portrait time and are willing to let me have a role in creating the timeline of their day. There’s certain times of day that are perfect for portraits (like sunset), so we will most likely sneak out of the reception for a few sunset portraits to get the golden hour glow.
  4. They are looking for a relationship, not just a transaction. This one is honestly the most important quality of all of my #kelsielynnbrides. I am very focused on ensuring that your experience with me is more than a transaction. I’m intentional about getting to know my couples and feel as though I can better serve you the better I know you. You will be encouraged, invested in, surprised and loved.

Future brides, you’ll be spending more time with your photographer on your wedding day than you will with your future husband (I know crazy, right??), so it’s incredibly important that you connect well with them. At the end of the day, you’ll be married and that’s all that really matters! You can be confident that through the whirlwind of your wedding day, I’ll capture your unique story as it unfolds with joy and grace. If this sounds like you and you think we could be best friends, I would LOVE to hear from you!
