About Kristie (photographer)

002Roots & Willow Branding Shoot_January

Kristie, a lifelong resident of Montana, plays and resides in the Big Sky state with her high school sweetheart and 3 very adventurous boys.


She has been shooting weddings since 2015 and loves the getting ready part of the day when all the final touches are coming together. Her calm spirit will encourage you to breathe and soak it all in because it goes by so quickly.


When she is not shooting weddings she loves riding her horse through the mountains and adventuring with her husband and 3 wild boys.  


Kristie's mantras:

  • Every day should begin with high fives

  • Hugs are the currency of the heart

  • A good day on the couch includes bowls of cereal and that 70's show


About Kelsey (owner, studio manager)

Kelsey is a nerdy little human who loves to laugh. When she is away from the office, she loves spending time with her husband and pups. On a normal day, you can find her with a cup of coffee, hair in a messy bun, or hiking somewhere new. She loves making dinner with her hubby and watching all the Grey's Anatomy she can. Her favorite part of wedding days is the "you may now kiss the bride" moment and the so excited rush up the aisle! 

An experienced wedding photographer with over 300 weddings, Kelsey finds joy in teaching other photographers and cultivating their talent.


Kelsey's mantras:

  • Chocolate fo life

  • I never say no to fur babies

  • There's never enough time for adventure
