A photo shoot with me is so much more than posing a smile for a few photos. My work is for the couples who aren’t afraid to get their clothes a little dirty, want to have beautiful and epic backdrops, and want their photo shoot to be an adventurous experience they won’t forget. Together, we will brainstorm a list of epic locations that we can go, along with tips on what to wear and bring, so that you feel fully prepared and can focus on each other.
Typically these sessions last 90 minutes, sometimes a bit longer if there is some walking required to get to the best view. In Southern California, some of my favorite spots for an adventure or engagement shoot to go is Malibu Creek State Park, El Matador, Joshua Tree, Angeles Crest Forest, and Abalone Cove. As well as various beaches along the coast, like Huntington Beach, Newport, Santa Monica, and Malibu.
Below you’ll find some inspiration for those who are considering having their own adventure session.
I like to incorporate adventure, movement, intimacy, and creativity to my photo shoots.
Some activities my couples in the past have incorporated in their photo shoots are:
playing in the ocean
going on a hike
renting a vintage car
popping a bottle of champagne
bringing their pup
"a day in the life" in their home

Once your photos are ready to view, I will send the images through an online gallery that you can order prints, share with family and friends, and download directly to your computer.
Every session and wedding package that I offer includes a ‘Print & Personal Rights’ form. This release form states that you have the right to order prints through the printing company of your choice.
The amount of photos you'll receive is an estimate based off the amount of hours you hire me to photograph. I don’t put a cap on the amount of images that I deliver. If there is a good image from your wedding day or session, I want you to have it! You can expect to receive a minimum of 50 images per hour.
I have a handful of incredible second shooters who I rotate through based off availability, as most have their own photography companies.
Engagement sessions takes about 2 weeks to receive.
A wedding 4-8 weeks, depending on the season.

Whether you've been in front of the camera a hundred times, or this is your first photo shoot together, I've got your back. I will help direct with posing and prompts, but most importantly I want the images to reflect your connection.
You can expect to receive a variety of posed, candid, playful, intimate images in your gallery. Below are some examples of what you can expect in your final gallery.
After our session together, I'll spend 10+ hours editing and perfecting each image that you'll receive. Once the gallery is ready (about two weeks) I will send a link to a high res gallery where you can view, download the files and order prints.

How Long Have You Photographed Couples?12 years! Born and raised in Missouri, photography allowed me to photograph weddings all across the Midwest from 2010 - 2017. In 2017, I moved from Kansas City to Los Angeles, and have been photographing love on the beach and in the mountains ever since. I have photographed over 400 photo shoots and 300 weddings.

No need to feel like you know exactly what you’re doing, I'll help you along the way. Just relax, enjoy the process, be in the moment, and we will create some beautiful photos together.
KIND WORDS FROM PAST CLIENTS
"Her photos are far more than anything I could have imagined. "
Kinsey is the best of the best. She shot our engagement photos and our wedding. She captured the joy and happiness of both moments perfectly. Her photos are far more anything I could have imagined, and they truly took our breath away. Her work speaks for itself, but beyond that, I am grateful for Kinsey's presence on our wedding day. She is so kind and caring, I couldn't imagine anyone being the one to capture our special moments.
