I'm really happy you're here.

You're on this page because you want to know more about me. Well, trust me, I'm pretty boring. Not in the self-deprecating but lives a wild life kind of way, but in the could-actually-be-a-90-year-old-grandma-at-the-ripe-old-age-of-35 kind of way. I live with my guy and my dog in the suburbs, trying to keep my houseplants alive and my living room dusted. Other than that, I get to work with some really cool couples and families from time to time, grabbing photos of them that hopefully they cherish forever.

Annie + Megan // duluth, MN

Kellie has done our engagement, wedding, and now newborn/family pictures and we couldn’t be happier! She is so much fun to work with and her work ALWAYS exceeds our expectations.


Emma + Josh // Gunflint Trail, MN

Kellie photographed our elopement at Gunflint Lodge last weekend, and we could not have been happier with the way she captured our exchange of vows and our moments with each other after. She was incredibly kind, funny, and made it easy for us to relax and be ourselves. Because of this, our photos truly reflected our excitement and love we felt on our wedding day. She is so talented and her work shows this even just from a glance. Leading up to the elopement, she was super helpful and responsive in the booking and planning process, and she was willing to travel to our location on the gunflint trail. We were so impressed with the quality of the final photos and couldn’t wait to share them with our loved ones! All in all, I cannot recommend her enough. Kellie rocks as a photographer and also just as a person in general!
