Hey there! My name is Kali Slaymaker and I am an adventure wedding + elopement photographer. Why? Because I think love is the world’s greatest adventure and the day you promise forever should be an adventure that reflects that. Each and every detail and moment of the day should be and you and your fiance. Cherish this day you are creating together, and make it your own! I’d be honored to be there to capture all the little, candid moments that make your love story so uniquely you.

The three words describe my work are: emotive, vibrant, and earthy. That is the type of images you can expect to receive from me. These words and images matter to me, and I hope they matter to you, too. You’re searching for someone to capture the intimate, important moments of the day you promise to love each other forever. These moments deserve to be preserved by someone who cares about you, the moments, and artistry. I promise to tell your story well by capturing the emotions and moments throughout the day. My imagery is focused on candid moments and directing. I’ll direct you in a comfortable, natural way to ensure beautiful photos, but also place emphasis on capturing you in your true, candid, in-love form! I want you to feel the emotion as you look through these images for generations to come. The images I deliver to you are all professionally edited by me. I would describe my editing style as artistic, warm, flattering, earthy, and timeless.

I feel honored every time a couple chooses me to capture their precious moments. I’d love to hear from you on my contact form, answer any questions you have, and discuss a customized package for you. I can’t wait to hear your story!
