Photographer of bohemians + rockers + artists + dreamers. At Kindred + Co. we don't just create photographs. We create memories, peace of mind, heirlooms, connection, and magical moments.
LET'S CREATE SOMETHING MAGICAL TOGETHER.
I am located in Fort Wayne, IN but also shoot about half my yearly weddings in Michigan (where I am originally from). I love to travel and do weddings world-wide, fully insured with an active passport. Travel fees are dependent on your specific wedding needs, but generally all I ask is basic travel expenses covered with one night's hotel stay if your wedding location would require me to stay overnight.
I have been in the photography business for almost 10 years, photographing high-end events, fashion, and portraits in the beginning, and over the course of that decade transitioned over to my true passion which is couples and weddings. I have been exclusively shooting weddings and couples for three years now, and am looking forward to meeting and serving more amazing couples in my fourth year as a full time wedding photographer.
I take a more candid/lifestyle approach to photography. What that means for my couples is you can expect some action-based direction and a little bit of instruction so that your images have a very natural feel but you aren't standing there wondering what to do with your hands. My editing style tends to have bolder colors, and a more "dark and moody" feel to the images. I love warmer toned skin and beautiful golden light, but can also rock the dark and cloudy days we frequently have in Indiana and Michigan. If you are looking for more natural images with a slightly darker artistic vibe then I'm your girl!
Our starting price for weddings is $2500, with the average couple spending $3,500-$4000.
Our typical wedding coverage includes an engagement session, 8 hours of wedding day coverage with two photographers, and an online gallery with personal rights for printing, sharing, and posting.
I love to meet my prospective couples in-person whenever possible. I like to make a little double date out of it at a local coffee shop or brewery so we can relax and get to know each other a little bit! If I'm located too far away or our schedules just don't allow us to meet up we can always set up a video chat instead and it's almost as good as the real thing.
We believe in always learning and improving both our business and photographic skill sets. We are members of Professional Photographers of America, Olivia studied at The College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI, and Bryan holds a communications degree from the University of Michigan. Some industry specific courses and workshops we have recently participated in include The Wedding Photography Masterclass by Devin Robinson, The Elopement Photographer Course, and the Love On Earth Workshop in Sedona, AZ. We are also a Leave No Trace certified business.
Choosing the right person to tell your story is one of the most personal choice you will make. I am not the right fit for everyone. I want you to be so happy with your whole experience, from start to finish, that I want you to find the photographer who is just right for you, even if it's not me. I will even help you find them. Because it's about living your truth and making memories to last a lifetime.
Does this sound good so far? Am I making your photographer dreams come true?
If so, let's create something beautiful together.
