The girl behind K & E....
Hello! My name is Kelsey and I'm thrilled that you are here! Photography has been a big part of my life for the past 15 years and I have made so many new connections with people that I would have otherwise never met. I honestly can't say enough good things for what this love of photography has given me and all of the positives it has brought into my life.
The most important part of my life is my beautiful and spunky 9 year old daughter Evelynn (aka Evie and the 'E' in K&E Photography). She is one of the biggest reasons I push myself to stay motivated and busy with something that keeps me grounded while also bringing so much good into my life.
A little about my history with photography.....
I moved to Tampa, Florida after high school and attended art school for a year and a half, as well as worked as a sales photographer at an aquarium and on a dining cruise. Those early experiences have laid a lot of the foundation for where I am now with my photography, and helped bring me out of my shell and comfort zones. I lived in Florida for almost 6 years before moving back to Vermont which is where I currently reside.
I can't believe how far I have come since starting this business in 2017 and still to this day I am so grateful that a childhood friend gave me the chance to photograph her wedding. It was a stepping stone I needed and the doors that have opened since then have been such a gift that I will continue to cherish and pursue for as long as I can!
What's going on now.....
2022 was the busiest season in my career and I had the honor of photographing 23 weddings (and my associate photographed 3) making a total of 26 weddings in the months June-October. Wow! I am always tickled that this is my job and people want me at their wedding!
I am expecting my second child (a baby girl!) in March 2023 with my partner Devon. No, not married (yet) but hopefully the day we are ready, we would love to have a destination wedding. I imagine somewhere with incredible scenery for epic photos!
I am a pretty simple woman who likes to indulge in traveling. I went to Iceland this August (2022) for a photography workshop and it was one of the best experiences of my life! I went to Belize in April of 2021. Other counties on my bucket list would be Italy, Greece, Rome, Thailand, Singapore and maybe somewhere in Africa? I am also hoping to make it to Alaska one day as well!
Other things I love are the ocean, spending time with my family and friends, a good beer and yummy taco. If I could be anything in this world (besides a photographer), it would be a marine biologist or zoologist. I always dreamed of working with marine mammals or big cats. What girl didn't want to do those things growing up??
Couples and weddings are my true passion. I have had the honor of witnessing and documenting 50+ weddings in the past 6 years. There is something really special about getting to spend such a big day with amazing people and their family and friends. I love that I am able to help tell their story and give my couples beautiful photos to look back on for years to come! 2023 will be my 7th year in business and it just keeps getting better and better. I look forward to all that the future has in store!

These are insane. They’re amazing, thank you so much! I have no idea how we’re going to pick which one to get as the canvas. I love all the moments you captured, it’s just the best gift.
