Pricing

Custom Packages

When it comes to pricing I do things a little differently than most photographers. I create custom packages for every couple! No two weddings are ever the same and every couple has a different vision and different priorities when it comes to their wedding day. Which is why I don’t ever want to put that into a prepackaged box. Your love and your relationship is unique and it deserves a unique experience!

So how do you get a custom package? After you fill out the form on my CONTACT page, we’ll hop on the phone and chat about what’s important to you guys and what services will fit your day best. After we’ve chatted, gotten to know each other and we think we’ll be a good fit, that’s when I’ll create individualized packages for you to choose from!

This custom approach makes the experience all around better for the both of us! I get to truly discover what you need and how I can deliver that for you, and you get a rad lady who cares about you enough to listen to your needs instead of just tossing random numbers at you like everyone else!

To give you a reference though, my prices generally start around this point!

Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION

Do you travel?

ANSWER

Absolutely! I call myself a South Dakota based photographer and filmmaker, but really I’m a wherever you are photographer and filmmaker! Check out my bucket list below for places I’m DYING to shoot in!! Let’s go on an adventure! Travel fees may apply because ya know, gas and plane tickets can be hella expensive. But the fees aren’t as bad as you might think they are so just ask!

QUESTION

What kind of sessions do you offer?

ANSWER

I specialize in weddings and couples! However, if you have an idea for something non-wedding or couple related, hit a girl up and let’s chat about it!!

I photograph people in love whether it’s an elopement in the mountains, a large traditional wedding or an intimate tiny wedding with 70 of your favorite humans! Tiny weddings are my fave!! I also photograph engaged couples (engagement sessions), married couples (anniversary sessions) or couples who just want photos for the heck of it! We’ll go on an adventure together for about an hour and a half and get some adorable AF photos of you two cuties!!

QUESTION

Do I have to pay the whole thing when I book my wedding?

ANSWER

Looking at the total price can be daunting, just like buying a house or car, but you only need to pay a portion to get started. I charge a $1200 retainer at the time of booking that holds your date and locks me down as all yours for that day! This retainer goes toward your total payment. The rest isn't due until one month before your wedding day. I also offer payment plans for the remaining balance if you would like one! So no need to stress!

QUESTION

When will we receive our photos?

ANSWER

My contract states that all couples photos will be delivered within four weeks and wedding photos within eight weeks. I usually post highlights and sneak peeks on my social media though, so keep an eye out for yours! ;)

QUESTION

We want to go on a hike for our engagement session, can we bring our dog?

YES! The answer will always be yes! Give me alllll the cute pups to pet!

"Kelsey will literally go above and beyond for anyone!

She met with Darrian 2 TIMES at the location he was planning to propose prior to the actual proposal! She even hid behind a tree for like 30 mins to capture the perfect moment when he was on one knee! DEDICATION!!!! When we took our engagement photos after she made us feel so comfortable and created a perfect environment for us to be us! We laughed and cuddled and just talked and Kelsey got the perfect shots! When we got our pictures back we honestly couldn’t believe we were the ones in the picture! They depicted us perfectly like no other picture ever has! We just got our full engagement session back and had a date night designated to looking at them! We couldn’t be happier with our pictures! Wouldn’t want anyone else to be our wedding photographer! I would 15/10 recommend Kelsey to do any photography needs you have! Thanks so much Kelsey!!"

- Avery + Darrian

So why me? What makes me different?

The Adventure!

I’ve gotchu!!! I’ve got your back and I’m in your corner 100%! I’m not just a vendor that shows up on your wedding day, I’m so much more than that! This is a friendship that goes beyond a paycheck for me. I’m invested in YOU! I not only want to document your story in the most beautiful and honest way possible, but I want to get to know you and be here for you! I’m here when grandma needs a hankie when she sees you in your dress for the first time, I’m here to fix your hair when it blows in your face during photos, and I’m here to celebrate with you and the humans you love most!!

I’m not the perfect fit for everyone, in fact, I’m far from it. I’m inspired by movement and often times will include a blurry photo in your gallery if a moment of joy is there! I’m also obsessed with the weird quirky things that are unique to you! I absolutely adore the fact that you read books out loud to each another and want to incorporate that into your session! HECK YES!!! I’m in my element when I’m adventuring, and shooting in nature sparks a fire in my photographer soul that nothing else does!
These things let my creative spirits soar and that’s what my client’s deserve!

That’s what YOU deserve!!
