My style is bright and joyful. I combine lifestyle documentary with a few posed moments. I am always seeking the best light and cohesive backdrops. While I love a light and bright photograph, I also think skin tone and adjusting for the best lighting is key.

I want to make our moments together an unforgettable experience.  As I always say, we are all awkward. It's part of my job to make you feel comfortable and let your truest self be known. I'll guide you and allow for the most flattering, natural moments.

Next Question

I ALREADY HAD AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION, CAN I SWitch IT OUT FOR A DIFFERENT SESSION?

I love shooting engagement sessions for my couples because it gives us a chance to get to know each other. By the time we arrive to your wedding day, you already know what to expect and what feels comfortable, not to mention you will have some great photographs to display and use on your wedding website, save the dates, and in your home!

If you already had an engagement session, I still encourage us to have a session together or find a time to meet up for drinks/dinner. All engagement sessions are my gift to you and included as part of your booked collection. It may not be taken out.

Do you offer Elopement or Micro Wedding packages?

YES! With everything going on in the world currently, this has become an exciting way to get married. Let me tell you, I am not mad about it. My past is in event planning so I love to see the creativity flowing in couples. I am on board with any idea or fun creative way to say I DO! I'd love to chat about your thoughts and see how I can best serve you.

No, and you would not want me to. On any given wedding day, I will photograph upwards of 3500 photographs, Lifestyle Sessions about 600. Some are just testing the light, other blurry and then some you would not appreciate receiving. I deliver you the best of the best photographs. Generally most weddings produce anywhere from 50 photographs per hour and full lifestyle sessions include at least 30 photographs up to 60. I do not delivery RAW photographs. They are all high resolution JPEG.

Do you deliver every image you photograph?

I require a second photographer with any wedding collection seven hours or more. I find, logistically and creatively, it’s best to have second shooters around for a good part of your day. They help capture the moments I may not be able to, including but not limited to: groom getting ready, reception details, guests, groom's reaction, candids during cocktail hour, and so much more.

Your second photographer will be hired by me and operate under Kelsie Elizabeth Photography, so it is never anything you ever need to worry about!

Why do I need a Second Photographer?

I will travel anywhere for love! Whether you are doing a destination wedding or found me and would love to have me in your local town, I am here for it. Traveling puts me at ease. It is one of my greatest joys in life,  my enneagram seven strength shines through.

A good part of North Carolina is included in my collection prices. If your wedding destination is outside of the included travel area, I'd love to discuss a travel package that is included with your wedding coverage.

Areas that do not require a travel fee include: NC, SC, CT, NYC, VT, & NH
