Cinematic Imagery for Wild Nostalgic Hearts

Hiya! My name is Kelly and I’m so excited you’re here!

If you value authentic connection, tangible emotion and images that allow your unique personalities to shine through, you are my people! Over the years, your photos will be how you remember and relive your wedding day, which is why I’ll be there to capture it all, even the soft glances and happy tears. I am an old soul with a deep love of all things cinematic and vintage so you can expect your images to be heartfelt as well as timeless, elegant and chock full of feeling.

I am currently located on the beautiful Sunshine Coast of BC, but don’t worry, my suitcase is always near the door. My heart belongs to travel and I spent most of my adult life living abroad so my mind is always daydreaming about my next adventure. I am known for my bad puns and movie references, perpetual clumsiness, and inability to ever reach anything on the top shelf. I love connecting with people deeply, spending time with my hype team (aka my cat and close friends), eating copious amounts of chips and salsa, and checking places off my ever-expanding bucket list.

My lens and love is reserved for those who lead with kindness and compassion. Love wins for EVERYONE in my space.

Love Notes

“I can’t say enough good things about her and her work. I wish I could rate her with more stars!! We were blown away when we received our album – she captured the day so beautifully. She also sent personal messages with updates and keeping in touch leading up to the wedding, which we really appreciated and even sent us a sneak peek gallery the next day!! Kelly, you are so talented! She made everyone feel so at ease at the wedding, and was such a pleasure to work with – we had so many laughs.”
-Kristen & Courtney
“You know how, when you look at pictures of an event and they seem to transport you back in time, back to the day? You get that feeling of being there once again? All the emotions and sensations are re-created, simply by looking at a photo? You feel the laughter, the tenderness again. Kelly, that’s what you gave us. Finding exactly the right light, capturing our personalities, spotting the “right there! that’s perfect” moment and memorializing it… you are a genius at this! We had so much fun with you! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
– Margi & Andy
“Kelly has an amazing energy that matches you where you are and it made us instantaneously relaxed. Her incredible photography speaks for itself, but her people skills from putting people at ease to wrangling a big rowdy crowd of people for photos is why she’s a superstar at what she does. Super flexible and great to work with. We went from being unsure about investing into a wedding photographer, to 200% relieved at having made that decision after and Kelly is at the heart of it all. Would recommend her again and again.”
– Sarah & Joel

Fun facts

What do you consider your style to be?

Cinematic and timeless images that combine the photojournalistic and editorial styles - I'll be a fly on the wall most of the time but your portraits will be creative and chic! I love movement, laughter, moments of silliness and a good ol' ugly cry. I edit very true to colour to ensure that all the hard work you put into setting the vibe of your day will be preserved.

What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with?

Laid back couples who are up for an adventure and down to be bffs. I love connecting with my couples and making our time together meaningful even from that very first conversation. I love being involved and supporting my couples throughout the wedding planning process and after the wedding, I love keeping in touch and seeing where life takes you!

Do you travel for clients? If so, where?

Heck yes! If I could, I would spend all my time travelling. Epic mountains, rustic cabins, Scottish castles, beach getaways, you name the place and I'll be there. I'm travel sized!
