What Kelsey was able to give us through her talent is the most incredible gift. Availeth Photography captured some of the sweetest memories of both our engagement session as well as our wedding. I will forever treasure our images and I cannot thank Kelsey and her team enough. They were able to make us feel so comfortable in their company and it came through in our images. Her ability to see and capture natural light, her eye for composition, and her sweet go with the flow attitude made both of our days such a dream. From the small details to the large group family pictures Kelsey was professional and friendly. It was such a joy to have her as part of our story and we will forever be thankful for her ability to capture the sweet, quiet moments of our relationship. We have received endless compliments on our photos and I never knew I could love photos of myself so much. Thank you so, so much Kelsey and Avalieth Photography!– Andrew and Erin Fricke
From start to finish, Kelsey was the dream photographer. Organized, flexible, creative and the easiest person to work with. As soon as my husband and I booked her, we weren’t worried about a thing! She captured the vision of the sorts of photos we wanted, and made the sometimes daunting task of smiling for hours a breeze! Her turnaround time was unbelievable, and the photographs not only showcased our day, they literally transported us back to our fairytale wedding! Treat yourself, and book Kelsey today :)) –George and Sarah Helfenstine
Having Kelsey photograph our wedding was one of the best choices we made in planning! She made the day seamless and run so smoothly… all of my wedding party and family was super impressed! The photos turned out amazing and we are so happy with the memories that she captured. Kelsey created an environment in which we felt so at ease in front of the camera and was able to get the mood of the day in each photo. When we got our package in the mail with cd’s and prints, not only was it adorably packaged, but we were so impressed with the number of photos that were all SO GOOD! It was hard to pick favorites to hang up in our place, but I am so happy with the ones we chose and plan on getting lots more printed and/or put in a photo book! Thanks so much Kelsey for sharing your God-given talents with us and helping us remember our big day for many years to come! -Brian and Heather Douglas
Our family has been so blessed by Kelsey’s ease and patience during her sessions with us. We treasure every photos are thankful to have these precious moments in time captured in such a classy and creative way. -Anna Davenport
When we first started wedding planning we had to decide if we wanted a friend who was skilled with a camera or a professional photographer to take the photos on our big day. Already nickel and dime-ing our way through the planning we decided a friend would suffice…and then we saw Availeth’s photos of a family friend’s wedding. There was no comparison to a friend who was skilled to Kelsey, who was simply amazing. We contacted her right away and soon after booked her for our day. After speaking with Kelsey on the phone to decide what photos we wanted at what time and with what family, I felt so taken care of, as if I was having a close friend taking the photos. With so many things to worry about, the photos were no longer one of them.
The day of the wedding was hectic, of course. Kelsey calmly moved the sessions along, taking photos of us and our personalities, not photos of stiff and formal poses with new clients thrown in. She put us all at ease. When we were running late she wasn’t watching the clock or getting frustrated; she was snapping photos of what was going on around us, which turned out to be some of the greatest captured moments.
Availeth took photos that captured the expressions, emotions, touching moments and the love that was abundant on our wedding day. She even took stills of the decorations and the details so that we could remember what it all looked like. Our friends and family can’t stop oohing and ahhing over the photos, but they also can’t stop talking about how great Kelsey and Alyssa were to work with. Kelsey was poised, smiling and running around with the cutest baby bump but she was also discrete and polite during the ceremony and reception. She is truly an amazing, artistic photographer, great listener, and an even more amazing person. -Meg and Alex Arndt
Kelsey’s talent speaks for itself. She is very gifted and her artistic eye is truly a God-given gift. I don’t know the last time my kids so willingly posed or smiled for more than two pictures. She has a gift & our family has been immensely blessed by it! I highly recommend Kelsey!-Hannah Baldwin
Kelsey was so patient and helpful with our family from her flexibility to her expert knowledge. She has a wonderful energy about her, which really came in handy during our below zero temperature photo shoot. Kelsey is very professional and at the same time makes you feel like your right at home. She is very detail oriented. All we had to do was sit back and let her make us look good. Kelsey has been blessed with the gift of finding beauty in the everyday. And our family is so thankful that she is using that gift to bless others. We couldn’t be happier with our photos!-Sarah Bleskacek
I couldn’t have been more blessed by kelsey and her skills in photography! She did an outstanding job and I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else capturing our big day
:) thank you for making it so memorable!-Hannah Vandeloo
Kelsey did such a great job with our wedding photography. She was so flexible with everything and able to meet all of our requests. She was easy to work with and made everything go so smoothly on our big day. Her photography is simple, yet beautiful. Her pictures simply speak for themselves. I would recommend her to anyone. -Karin and Isaiah Stofferahn
Kelsey has been blessed with a very special gift to capture the simple beauty in moments. Even for camera shy individuals, Kelsey made shooting our engagement session and wedding day peaceful and stress free. It was natural for the two of us to just be ourselves. During our engagement session, she captured the root of our relationship. Looking through our wedding photographs, I feel like I am experiencing the same excitement and joy. Like her photographs, Kelsey is so full of love and bursting at the seams to share life with all she can! I can’t even imagine a better experience. -Casey and Brady Haas
