hey there, i'm

kim

Traveling Photographer, Designer, Entrepreneur, Cat-mom and Murderino.

I’m a born and raised Yooper with mind for business and a heart for art. With a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Communication and a minor in Business Administration, photography was only supposed to be a ‘complimentary skill’ — the universe had other plans. I shot my first wedding almost seven years ago and never looked back.

 

the kgcc photography style

authentic

I am a planner by nature, but when it comes to photography I feel that the best moments are captured organically. My photography style is contemporary, and somewhat photo journalistic. I use the word ‘authentic’ to describe my work because I encourage my clients to be themselves. All the weird. All the messy. All the love. The smiles are real, the touching is natural, and the body language speaks for itself. I would describe my editing style as natural with a touch of mood and I envision a canvas on your wall the second I click the shutter.

nontraditional

Every couple deserves their dream photographer who meets all of their needs and expectations. I serve my clients best in a non-traditional setting which can be anything from a small back yard ceremony to vows on the ski hill or a Tuesday afternoon elopement followed by champagne by Lake Superior, fur-baby riding shotgun and the only clock we look at is the sky. I want my clients to be “in-it” on their wedding day. “In-it” is where the magic happens.

I’m based in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan, but my carry-on is ready to be packed and my passport is up-to-date for any and all destinations.

memorable

Fifty years from the day you said “I do” and the cake is gone, the music faded, the flowers dried, I want you to look at your photos and be brought back to that moment that you didn’t even know happened because you were so caught up in loving every second of being with your person that you forgot the camera was even around. I want you to feel it over and over again in every detail documented, every expression captured... the best day of your life preserved and ready for you to relive over and over through your photographs — that’s the goal, every time.

 
 

investment & application

woo! let’s do this.

Wedding packages are customized for each client. I’ve included what I believe is essential and then let them add the rest! All weddings include a complimentary engagement session, two photographers on the day of the wedding and the high-resolution digital files in a beautiful online gallery complete with a customized digital storefront, making it easy to share with loved ones. Plus clients will receive a store credit for a free printed item, valued up to $500, based on their package. Plus, wedding clients receive discounts on Boudoir sessions and additional Bride/Groom portrait sessions.

Why an application? I accept a limited amount of weddings each year so that I can focus all of my energy into giving the best experience possible to my clients. The application tells me everything I need to know to get a quote started and it gives me an idea of how well we might work together. Plus, you can pick a time that works for you to hop on a video call or better yet, meet in person, so that I can answer any questions you might have before signing the dotted line.

Couples’ sessions start at $200

Elopements & anniversaries start at $1,350

Local Marquette, MI Weddings start at $2,250
