FEATURED MIDWEST PHOTOGRAPHERS

                      DELAVAN, WI   I’m Krysta. Small town girl living near the southern border in Wisconsin. The most beautiful girl calls me mom. I get to live my dream by turning your favorite memories into pictures. I don’t have a favorite subject to photograph because everything in life is absolutely-flippen-beautiful. Candid and genuine moments that showcase your personality are my favorite to capture. I like creepy stuff like crime shows and abandoned houses. Visiting new places and meeting kindred spirits sets my soul on fire so don’t be a stranger!

                         OSCEOLA, IN   A short bio about myself huh? Ill try to keep this short. The names Kelsey. I am a natural light photographer based in Northern Indiana that REALLY digs her job. I like to say I have a more editorial vibe to my work- but in the process it won’t feel that way.

I really aim to empower every single one of my clients along the way. You won’t like the images I capture if you aren’t liking yourself in the process. So, lets get this down right away- you are beautiful!!

                      IOWA CITY, IA   I am addicted to bagels. Let’s just get that out there real fast. I am a lot of other things, too: a wife, photographer, ex-barista, nanny, plant lady, cat lady, college dropout, the weird artsy friend. I’m a born and raised Californian who was sucked in by the Midwest’s charm + my handsome husband James. I am on a mission to not only photograph you, but photograph you as you are. My aim is to leave you more in love with your best friend than you were before you stepped in front of my camera. I believe that love can be more than fuzzy feelings; I believe that it can change the world.

                     SPRINGFIELD, MO   I'm from Ohio and after living there, Missouri, Idaho, and Washington, I’m now back in Missouri and call it home. Living a sweet life with my soon-to-be husband and our doggie (Arnold). Jesus has truly blessed me by giving me an opportunity to do what I love and I still can’t believe it at times.  Most days you can catch me buying things at Target, cooking up new recipes, trying to eat healthy, editing photos, enjoying the outdoors, playing way too many games of “Sorry” with my friends, and just enjoying my life in the Midwest.   I’m a natural light photographer and love being able to capture the elements just how they are. Photographing weddings and engagements is what I usually stick to but I have a nag for lifestyle photography as well. Producing an environment where you can get creative and weird is something I really enjoy doing!

               PITTSBURG, KS   I'm currently studying Biology at Pittsburg State University and am pursuing my graduate degree after graduating in the upcoming fall. In my spare time I love to travel, read poetry, and go on runs with my Siberian Husky pup, Champ.

                  SPRINGFIELD, MO    I get to travel the world taking photographs of people during some of the most exciting moments of their life.  Over the past 8 years I've photographed close to 200 weddings.  Specializing in environmental portraiture, I love working with clients who share an appreciation for beautiful landscapes and aren't afraid to hike up a mountain, venture into a forest, or explore a secluded beach.  My wife, Jessica, and I currently travel all over North America and abroad doing wedding & portrait photography, stopping to take in the beautiful sights along the way. I share photos of these places I'm lucky enough to visit through   social media   and in   my online gallery.      When I'm not traveling you can find me in Springfield MO (my home base) with my wife grabbing Pad Thai and tacos from the food truck down the street or hanging out with our kittens and chickens at home.

                       CINCINNATI, OH   Professional Photographer aside, I am just a complex human trying her best to be the kind of person who loves others well and doesn't take herself too seriously (sometimes I fail at that). I believe the calling I have in my heart to love others well is the driving force behind my creative giftings. When I step behind my camera, I am choosing to put whoever I have in front of me first. I notice the smallest details about them and capture them in their most authentic self with my lens. So many times this world tells us that we have to be perfect and if we aren't, we will be forgotten or unworthy of being noticed and loved...I like to think that my artistry (and stellar personality) smashes that out of the atmosphere and allows others to just be themselves and rejoice in the beauty they possess as humans. I truly do love the complex jumble of imperfect, messy and wonderfulness that is humnanity, don't you?

                SPRINGFIELD, MO    Hello there! I'm Emily, a natural light photographer. I took an interest in photography at a pretty young age and it quickly became my passion.

I like to make a relationship with all of my clients. I try my best to make people comfortable in front of the camera. My photos have an authentic and realistic feel. I believe in creating photos that reflect your personality and what you adore.  I want to capture the moments that you will cherish forever.

                         Minneapolis, MN   Hey, hey peeps! My name is Nick and I am an aspiring nature photographer based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. There is something about nature that is so raw, unplanned, and inspiring to me… Since a young age, I was taught to explore.

I’ve always wanted to bring that imagination and truth to my photography.   Loves: loons, Eaux Claires festival, family, and my canoe  Follow along with me as I continue to journey through the great Midwest. Oh, and if you’re ever in town, let’s grab ice cream!

                             MADISON, WI   I currently reside in the cheesy capitol of Wisconsin with my handsome bearded husband. This dream has kept me busy since 2015 and it’s been the hardest and most rewarding job I have ever had. I have dedicated my life to a higher purpose in Jesus and as a result I believe that faith, humility, & compassion are essential to a fruitful life. With photography, my passion and goal is to capture life as candid and authentically as possible. I am all about the natural moody lighting and cool film-like tones. As an artist, I want nothing more than to help people cherish the blessings they have and adore their beautifully unique & imperfect lives.

                       SPRINGFIELD, MO   My older brother bought me a film camera for my birthday years ago. I had always had an interest in photography, so when he taught me how to use a film camera and how to see light, I ran with it. Now that interest in photography has become my full time job! I love working with couples who are passionate about each other and who are down to go on a little adventure for their session. Outside of photography you can find me with my husband rock climbing, or hanging with our dog son!

                 JOPLIN, MO   I have always found myself so captivated by that fact we are able to capture a moment in time, to savor it forever. Even at a very young age, I was so intrigued. I remember asking for nothing but a new camera for every birthday. I love that I am able to use my passion and talents to give to others.  I love the unqiueness of everyday things and that is the exact style I bring to my photography. The goal of my work is to capture others exactly as they are - real, authentic, raw. I want my images to tell stories. I want to capture all those messy moments, the happily unplanned. The pictures you can look at and remember exactly how you felt in that exact moment in time. I am about those moments that show who we really are, those moments when we are unaware of the camera; Those are the images worth cherishing.

                                                                                                   SPRINGFIELD, MO    Well, my name is Leigh Smith and I’ve lived in Springfield, MO my entire life. When I grow up I am going to be an Interior Designer, but I’ll always have photography by my side! There has always been a connection between me and the arts in some way, shape, or form (haha, an art joke!) but photography has been the one I’ve connected with the most. When I’m shooting I try to have the most fun I can. I don’t stress about getting the “perfect” image, but it’s always exciting to look through the camera roll and see a great shot! Once I book a shoot I like to hop in my car and go “spot hunting” for unique, beautiful places to take pictures of my clients! Other than that, I love dogs, Studio Ghibli, bread, green tea, and 65 degree weather.

                           WAUKESHA, WI   Oh hey, I'm Carley!I'm a portrait and wedding photographer from southeast Wisconsin.  On a typical day, you'll find me studying for college exams, sitting on my bedroom floor strumming a melody on my guitar, putting in those business hours, developing a plan to eradicate daylight savings time (we don't need it), or accidentally overwatering/underwatering/killing all my house plants.  Other than that, I go on really long runs, listen to music on repeat, and write funny Instagram captions ;)  I'm a believer, dream chaser, and chronic optimist - I use the smiley face emoji way more than necessary :)!  I'm kind of the most chill person in the world, andddd I love meeting new people, so let's connect!

                        CHICAGO, IL   Hi, I’m Zach. I live in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood with my beautiful wife, Elli, and two misbehaving cats named Bowie and Wolfgang. I love making coffee, mixing drinks, cooking meals, and hosting parties. I love riding my motorcycle, reading all kinds of books, and listening to great music.  And I love photography. I started out with my dad’s ancient Nikon back in college and before long, I was never without that camera around my neck. Life is a constant state of flux: faces age, families grow, relationships change, and individuals float in and out of your world. Photography gave me a way to immortalize these fleeting moments from my own life. I haven’t stopped documenting my own story and now I love helping other people document their most important moments.
