Hi, we’re so happy you found us!

I’m Kelsey, and the main driver of this business. I just might be one of the only marine biologist/wedding photographers out there, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. My full time job is photographing weddings and portraits, and my side gig is running our research organization and studying whales. My amazing husband Tom is my sidekick. Although his full-time job is teaching biology and coaching football, he assists behind-the-scenes of our business and is my biggest supporter. This business would not be possible without him, and he photographs weddings and sessions with me whenever his schedule allows. Together, we are biologists, adventure-seekers, freedivers, powerlifters, Netflix junkies, coffee addicts, and dog lovers. We discovered after our own wedding that we adore capturing love stories for other couples, and it truly means the world to us to be a part of a wedding day. While we specialize in engagements and weddings, we also photograph families, newborns, and high school seniors! 

As your photographers, we work mostly with natural light and natural elements to create timeless images that our clients will cherish. We want our images to show light, love, and emotion. We love capturing the joy on a groom’s face when he sees his bride for the first time, or those tiny little newborn details, or the laughter and love of a family. If you think our style would be a great fit for your photography needs, feel free to contact us! We’d absolutely love to meet you. 

Let’s grab some coffee & chat! xx

Kelsey swimming with pilot whales. My personal research focuses on the social structure of intelligent cetaceans like pilot whales, sperm whales, and orcas. Have you seen our original photography logo? That’s actually a whale fluke :)

Tom swimming with a beautiful, docile whale shark. I’m not sure how I got so lucky to find another biology-loving, ocean-swimming photographer, but aside from helping me with sessions & weddings, Tom assists me with our research company and is able to go on many of our trips!
