I'm Kendra, and I’ve had a camera in my hand since I was a little girl. I grew up watching my dad document special moments in our family’s life with his camera– moments I now cherish looking back on with my own daughters. I eventually got my own camera and started shooting anything that moved. I was hooked.
After a less than stellar experience with my own wedding photos, I knew I never wanted anyone else to look back at their photos with anything but joy. I became a wedding photographer because I knew I could operate differently.
I love working with couples so much that I don’t want it to end when they drive off in their getaway car. I want to be their lifetime photographer. I offer portrait photography in order to continue those relationships, documenting each new season of their lives.
I know a beautiful gallery isn’t the only thing that matters: I want my clients to enjoy the moment itself, not just the images. With over 13 years of weddings and portrait sessions under my belt, I know how to make your day-of experience with me comfortable, fun, and stress-free (yes, it’s possible, I promise!). I’m not afraid of a little elbow grease, either: chasing down uncle Steve for a family photo, fixing flyaway hairs, or crouching on the ground for that perfect shot. My style is true to life. The colors of the day are never muted, filtered, altered. Oh, and I love black and white photos, so you can expect a smattering of those in your gallery!
Jesus, my family, making memories with my husband and daughters, a good book, the coast,
sweet tea, j.crew, guacamole, exercising, netflix, a cup of coffee in the morning quiet, sunrises
& sunsets, fall, my friends, shopping from home in my pj's, a great red wine blend, good conversation.
