Upper Michigan Elopement Photographer

based in marquette, mi
available for travel

From the fresh coast shoreline of Lake Superior in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan and beyond, I soulfully capture modern stories of lovers in love (and their dogs.)

I started my photography career back in 2010 and have captured hundreds of stories over the years. I found my true passion in intimate weddings and elopements in 2016 when I rode in a chairlift to the top of a mountain to document a small ceremony in the company of 50 of their closest family and friends, their dogs, and an aged bottle of scotch that acted as a unity candle.

A fire lit inside of me and I thought “This is how it should be."
Every single detail was so them. They threw the rulebook and traditions out the window and in turn, got to talk to every single guest, had plenty of time for photos and adventuring, their dogs got to be a part of the ceremony and they were so relaxed. Actual wedded bliss.”

And from that moment, I wanted that actual wedded bliss for all of the couples I work with. The best part? I am still friends with that couple to this day! And if you work with me, we will become friends, too.

Hey there! I'm Kim.

(yes, my friends really call me Kimgirl!)

you get closer.

you laugh.

you play outside.

you have fun.

you absolutely bring your dog.

what to expect

“I have nothing but absolutely wonderful things to say about Kim! I spent my entire day with Kim’s team and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. Kim was there for me before the wedding (out of state bride here) to help with photo locations and really anything else I needed. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!”

The first step is to check out my work and average investment for the offering that best describes what you're looking for. If you are vibing with my style and feel like we might be a good fit, fill out the intimate wedding & elopement inquiry form (linked here) to start the inquiry process.

If I'm available for your date, the next step is to meet! We set up a virtual hangout so that I can learn more about the two of you and how I can best serve you. It's a safe space for you to ask any questions you might have, and if at the end we are all feeling good, I send you a custom photography package that has everything you need, and nothing you don't.

02/04

After you've selected your custom package, signed the contract, and paid the $500 retainer, you've officially booked a wedding photographer! Then I get to planning your experience with a personalized photography timeline, location scouting, and planning any additional sessions you wanted. Your experience is everything to me, and it begins right away.

03/04

After the day is done, I'm already obsessing over your photos... you can expect a sneak peek gallery within a few days and the full online gallery within 8 weeks to share with your loved ones. No need to worry about downloading files... I send you a keepsake USB with high-res digitals, print release, and a little something extra as a 'thank you' for the honor of capturing your special day.
