About us
      KELSEY & TALON

      THE PEOPLE WE PHOTOGRAPH ARE OUR NORTHERN STAR, ALWAYS GUIDING & INSPIRING US.

      We shoot on both film & digital to blend the modern & nostalgic, the artistic and natural. Our couples are our northern star when photographing their wedding day. Who they are, what do they love, and how have they crafted their day to represent them? Our favorite wedding days are filled with love & joy, intentionally designed with thoughtful details, involve lots of time spent in the great outdoors and are filled with the closest friends and family.

      THE CREATORS

      We are Kelsey & Talon. The nerdy, adventurous, traveling husband & wife team inspired by the wonder & beauty of the natural world.

      We met in a local coffee shop in 2010. Kelsey in a blue plaid flannel, sipping on a latte; Talon in a well worn band tee, offering a sheepish smile. When our eyes met, we were convinced it was love at first sight. As the coffee shop closed, Kelsey asked Talon out to a bookstore, marking our first official date. We have been together every day since. On a cloudy fall day, we exchanged our handwritten vows under a giant oak tree surrounded by our closest family and friends. We spent the evening dancing under the stars, eating homemade pies and burgers, and recounting old family stories and memories well into the night. It was one of the best days of our lives, so far.

      OUR APPROACH

      There’s nothing quite like your wedding day. No words to adequately to describe the feeling of looking out and seeing the constellations of people that make up your beautiful life surrounding you. No words other than magic. It’s pure magic. 

      We strive to make every one of our couples’ imagery feel truly like them, we want your wedding collection to feel exactly like the wedding day. How do we accomplish this? By shooting on film and digital, to blend a modern and nostalgic aesthetic. By getting to know our couples on a deeper level and really striving to create a friendship with them. By going in to every wedding day with the mantra:

      Our clients have hired us to capture their day as it’s happening, in a natural and authentic way, but also that they’ve hired us to create art out of their wedding day.

      This concept of your wedding day being a living piece of art, created together as an expression of yourselves, is endlessly inspiring to us.

      The moments happening become brush strokes dancing together to create this full, warm, inviting image that will always fill your heart with joy. The way the bride takes a deep, calming breath the moment she sees herself in her wedding dress the first time; the way her and her best friend hold hands and tear up, thinking about all the times they’ve talked about this day; the way the grooms jaw drops at their first look and how he can’t wait to wrap his arms around his girl; the surreal, incredible feeling of walking down the aisle with everyone you’ve ever loved a part of the moment with you; the way everyone tears up (guests & all) at the hand-written vows and it feels like nothing could ever take away the beauty of this moment; the magic of a golden sunset with the wind softly blowing the brides’ hair as her & the love of her life look at each other and the most joyous smile spreads across their faces; the elated laughs & intimate moments that happen all across the reception as your most favorite people in the world celebrate that you found the one person you’re going to choose every day for the rest of your life.

      KELSEY

      INFP. Enneagram type 4w3. Pisces.

      A dreamer. A feeler. A romantic. An idealist.

      You can pretty much always find me with at least two books and a notebook in my bag. I have about 50 house plants and counting. My favorite place to be is with my nose in a good book snuggled next to Talon on the couch while rain patters against the window, or outside on a chilly walk in the mountains or in a garden. Really, I’m happy anywhere I’m with Talon and with a cold brew coffee in hand. Deep conversations fill my soul. I believe in good energy and that there’s magic all around us – in the collective joy we feel on wedding days, in the goodness of humanity, in the way an author can weave words that can bond strangers, the beauty of windswept hair and breathless laughter, and in the serenity of the mountains.

      I’m drawn to photographing people and the connections they have, the way they interact, the intangible feelings, and creating meaningful experiences for the people I photograph. I love shooting things that are a little wild, a little messy, and feel like they might’ve just been a dream.

      TALON

      INTP. Enneagram type 5. Aquarius.

      A thinker. A listener. A mind amongst the stars.

      There are few things more fun to me than playing a new board game, the nerdier the better, with a record on. I love all things science-fiction, and definitely think about time travel more than the average person. I feel most at home in the mountains, with Kels by my side. I believe that every new day is awesome and completely worthy of being the greatest day ever, and that no wedding day will ever be the “perfect” day but an imperfect representation of how damn awesome life is.

      I’m drawn to architectural lines and environmental shapes, and how people interact within and with those. I’m quiet and more reserved, so observing and capturing the moments happening around me comes naturally.
