ABOUT ME


 
Kelsey Blocks-02.jpg

Why hello! I am Kelsey and I am so happy that you have clicked on this page to learn more about me!  Personally, I think it is so critical to get to know who is photographing your big day, your family, or your loved one.

I have always classified myself as a nerd my entire life. I was the kid who was more interested in figuring out computer programs and coding than shopping or sleepovers. I have gone through many stages of awkward in my life from Harry Potter glasses to the Madeline haircut to the librarian being a friend of mine in middle school. I love collecting books, figurines, and fangirling over video games and television shows. Specifically, the fantasy genre (Supernatural and Game of Thrones anyone?). I am big music lover and have been to dozens of concerts in my lifetime. Barnes and Noble is my happy place and always a spot for me to wander into whenever I need to be cheered up or to relax. I love to travel and find out more on what the world has to offer, however I always come back home to be in my pjs with my two pups. I am one to always make friends and it excites me when I discover connections with new people!

Art has always been interwoven in my life and I had never considered myself an artist until I was up on a rooftop in Baltimore at my cousin’s wedding. I remember explicitly my mother pointing out their photographer and telling me that could be me one day. I never considered photographing weddings until many landscapes and abandoned places were explored when I realized how desperately I wanted to include people. But more specifically people in love. The idea of love to me is shameless. Growing up, I had a hard time being myself, and the idea of finding someone that accepts you the exact way you are just sounded so insane to me. Those relationships are what inspire me. I want to focus on what makes the two of you, you! I love giving credit to our beautiful world with wide shots, while also focusing on close, detail, and intimate shots as well. On your wedding day I want to cover every single perfection that involves it, to your table centerpieces, florals, and rings, to your family, friends, and your significant other. I would love to meet you two and learn more about your wonderful story, as long as coffee is involved!
