Kels & Michael
It all started when we fell in love
Hello and welcome!
I’m Kelsey, a photographer, an aspiring chef who loves to cook from the heart, and I crave the sound of the ocean’s waves swelling and crashing. My husband, Michael is also a photographer, working toward his goal of becoming a doctor, passionate about learning, loves a good project, and has an incredible attention to detail. My love of organization and genuine care for my clients and Michael’s calm, contagious presence make us a pretty unstoppable team. We are both Arizona natives, now based in Southern California, but chasing the sun wherever we go. I’m innately drawn to warmth, color, and elegance; which I try to emulate into all of my work. Creating art gives me confidence and fulfills me in a way like nothing else can (although, I’ve heard this will change once we have kids ;) ) With degrees in science, we both know the importance and the magic made through experimentation. We aren’t afraid to take risks, to challenge ourselves, and hone our skills. We are drawn to simplicity, genuine connection, and find beauty in all things we encounter. Whether capturing families in their homes, the swells of the ocean, or a romantic ceremony, we truly invest ourselves into all aspects of our work and feel extremely honored to have the privilege of capturing so many beautiful moments. The genuine connection that happens in front of my camera and with my clients is priceless. Our relationships serve as the foundation of our business, a source of inspiration, and constant support and growth systems for each other.
