What I Aim To Do
If you're looking for a unique earthy feel that captures the candid moments, we would work well together. If you're on the hunt for a photographer who wants to get to know you as a person so that they can help you feel more confident and comfortable in getting your images taken - that's what I'm here for.
I am an adventurous photographer documenting authentic moments with a sense of personality and emotion.
The Person behind the lens
DIGITAL. FILM. SUPER 8
On my days off you can find me picking up just about any outdoor hobby. From mountain biking, snowboarding, to camping, climbing, and fishing, skating - you can say I'm pretty typical when it comes to a Coloradoan. If there's a taco truck - I'm there.
I'm always on the go. My personality is a little introverted with some bursts of energy. I consider myself a life-long learner and have three degrees (Marketing, Communications, and Organizational Leadership). While I'm on the road I'm listening to podcasts, silently singing along to just about every type of music from Indie to Rap Caviar on Spotify and stopping for a good iced coffee or tea. Although I say I never drink soda, you might find me with a coke and whiskey or cider while I sit and edit.
Growing up in such a major digital age - taking photos as a way of capturing memories, has always been a part of my life. I had a camera from a young age and went to a school focused on arts. I always loved looking back through the prints my parents had kept from their teenage years in Thailand when they had first met. There is so much power in keeping those memories for yourselves and for others.
Between me and my sister I've got the art brain and she's the science brain. We traveled a lot growing up and spent ton of time in the outdoors. One of my favorite parts about being a destination photog is the adventures I get to craft with couples I work with that share some of my passions.
I believe that photography captures joy, happiness, love, and some of the most special moments. It allows me to look at things from different perspectives and I enjoy getting to make others feel stress free behind the camera. Everybody deserves to have these important moments captured for themselves. Every day brings a new adventure which can be SOOO fun. There's been so many moments so far where I get to connect with clients, empower them, capture them, and celebrate with them. There have also been moments that make me so thankful to have been there to capture an important person or time in their lives.
This all started when I did elopement pictures for my sister in the Rocky Mountains. After years away from the camera, I finally felt like I had found a little bit of myself again. After that, photographing weddings and elopements became a weekend ritual for me. It's more than just sharing amazing experiences with couples all over the world.

"Kelly is an AMAZING photographer!!! She was our wedding photographer for our 2- day wedding and the pictures she delivered were a dream!!!! From my first meeting with her, she made me feel so comfortable and really spent the time to get to know us. Kelly made it her top priority to understand what we wanted from our wedding. Through the planning process, she helped us find a ceremony site of our dreams. I was very picky and she sent multiple recommendations until she felt I was happy. Leading up to our big weekend, she always kept constant contact, remained very organized, and delivered on time."
"Kelly is by far one of the most incredible people I’ve ever met! Photograhy wise - even better. My spouse and I had help from her with every detail and even though the day was rainy and chaotic by my own means; she stuck through it with us and delivered the most incredible pictures I’ve ever seen. It was so much more than anything I could picture or put into words. She captured everything I wanted and everything in between..."
"Kelly took amazing photos of our Colorado destination wedding! We were clueless regarding what to do with our bodies and where to pose, but Kelly guided us throughout the night and we are in love with the results. The photos are fun, energetic and chic, just like we requested! We highly recommend working with Kelly if you're able to book her!"
"Kelly photographed our daughter’s camping wedding in the Colorado mountains in June and the photos are fantastic! The posed photos are great, of course, but the candid photos are also sooo good! She was able to capture all the intimate moments, laughter, food and fun we had. I really appreciated how quickly she was able to take all of the family photos so that everyone could quickly get back to celebrating. It was important to us to support young women entrepreneurs during the wedding process and we are so happy we found Kelly! I highly recommend her!"
