Behind the Lens


I'm a hopeless romantic who finds great joy in creating and capturing connection and beauty wherever I go.

A genuine people person, lover of good lighting, travel, and the soft, glowing colors brought to life on film and digital. 

I'm a Texas Wedding Photographer and live near Austin, Texas. With over 200 weddings of experience – you can trust me to pose and direct you, manage large wedding parties and family photos in a lighthearted way, create timeless shots, and capture your most intimate and candid moments.

KCP has been named a Preferred Vendor of Austin Wedding Planner Association since 2019 and has won The Knot's Best of Weddings 3 years in a row! Our work has been featured in Wedding Chicks, Wedding Wire, People Magazine Online, and Brides of North Texas to name a few.

When I'm not photographing weddings I'm planning my next trip or simply enjoying time at home with my family. 

I'm Kelly

about us

Literally anything and everything Mediterranean. I come from a German/Italian family and really LOVE food. 


My other-half and our full time second photographer! Master of candids & lighting - he loves playing guitar, film photography & espressos.



Spending time with my family, or golden hour walks with Ryan.



A really strong coffee every morning and a few pages of a book right before bed. The Office, New Girl, Seinfeld, and Friends are all on rotation.

Not So guilty pleasures


From chasing waterfalls in Iceland, to hiking in Colorado, we love the outdoors and to travel! 
Our bucket list never stops growing! 




That moment after the kiss walking down the aisle after the ceremony... when my clients realize their forever starts right then!
