I'M KELSI BRINKMEYER!
TEXAS + ARKANSAS BASED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I specialize in weddings, couples, and families, but dabble in other fields when needed. My true passion lies in playing a role in telling love stories with my camera lens, and I would love to help tell yours!
Something that I would like my couples to know about me and my business is that I truly encourage you to create the wedding experience YOU desire. Your wedding is an intimate and important experience that celebrates and solidifies the love between you and your partner. No one should make this day about anything but that! So, do what you want to do, wear what you want to wear, invite who you want to invite, and I'll be waiting there for you to create the most magical images with you!
I would describe my photography style as candid, emotional, and timeless with a warm, vivid, and contrasted editing. I always want you to look at your final wedding gallery or film and take a stroll down memory lane, having both timeless, posed portraits to look back on, but a ton of candid, unposed moments captured that will flood your mind with memories every time.
Besides being your friendly local wedding photographer, I am a 25 year old working building my life and home and friendships after moving back to my hometown, Texarkana, after living in DFW for 6 years. I have 2 cats, Poppy and Percy, and a dog, Maia, who are my world! I try to keep it to a minimum, but I definitely post them on my Instagram story way too much.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to document my couples weddings. The feeling knowing that I have a hand in documenting a day that is among the most important in someone's life truly is something that I cant describe!

“One of my favorite hobbies is thrifting! I always hear people commenting on how hard it is to find the goods at thrift stores, and I always say, you don't know how to look then! I LOVE finding used clothes to put in my styling closet for shoots at thrift stores. All of the photos featured on my 'FASHION' tab were styled by me from thrifted clothes! Also environmentally friendly, which I love!”
I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A CREATIVE
Since I was young, I've always been interested in the arts. I have always been able to pick up something crafty and be good at it quickly. For that, I am extremely thankful, because it's what I love! It wasn't until I was older that I thought about my creative abilities and ways to share them with others. I have found so much joy in being chosen by couples and families to document their milestones - I'll never be able to put into words how it's made me feel over the years. I know this was my calling, because I feel extremely grateful to be preserving memories for generations to come!
My goals are and always will be to capture my client's lives in their purest forms, while making everyone feel safe, happy, and comfortable. If the kids aren't cooperating that day, it's okay! We love candids around here. If you're feeling stiff and nervous at the start of the shoot, that's okay! We will chat a bit and learn more about each other. I may prompt you to do something silly to get those genuine laughs and funny moments preserved forever.
SO, NOW WHAT?
Do we sound like a good match? Come say hi + be Captured by Kelsi!
