Hi & hello friends! First off, thanks for dropping in and checking out my website. My name is Kelsey Lageri- I'm located in Metchosin on Vancouver Island, but I absolutely love to travel! So if you aren't located on the Island- no worries at all. A little bit about me, I have been a photographer since 2012, but took on the professional side of things around 2015. I am a major softy and am the type of photographer who will be tearing up at weddings at your vows and speeches, but I'm also extremely goofy and love to have fun. I own 3 beautiful animals and am engaged to my bestfriend. I am outgoing and happy, and take pride in what I do. The passion I have for photography, is stronger than I can handle... I'm constantly brewing up new creative ideas to create. I consider all of my clients friends, and I truly am lucky to do what I do, because I get to meet SO many amazing people along the way. Being a photographer, has been my dream since I was old enough to hold a camera and it's pretty cool to have my dreams come true every single day.
The best way to determine if I will be the right match for you, is to give me a message or call! I'm always here to answer your questions and to help make everything easy, breezy and beautiful for you. I understand that life is tough sometimes , so I offer split payment plans for all of my sessions (over an hour) to make things all the easier. So let's chat away the details and create some magic, I can't wait to get to know you & to create stunning memories together.
Wedding + Elopements
Maternity + Newborn
Couples + Engagements
I'm here to make your session fun, memorable and relaxed. My style is true and authentic to each client, while still guiding you for the best possible outcome. My past clients have described me as easy going & happy...which is true! I couldn't be happier to capture families growing, or first dances on wedding days.
WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY ABOUT ME...
Anyone with kids knows how hard it is to get everyone ready and looking good for a photo shoot. Not to mention trying to get them all to cooperate at the same time. It can be extremely disappointing to put a lot of money and effort into photos and not have them turn out. My family was definitely not making it easy for Kelsey. After she had finished and left, I was worried to say the least. But the moment I received the proofs I was blown away. One after another, after another, they were ALL AMAZING (her turn around time was extremely quick). I honestly don’t know how she did it. Her photos have a beautiful yet raw quality to them that we get so many compliments on. Kelsey was professional from start to finish. She was patient when I couldn’t be. She recognized when we needed to change things up and managed to get the kids attention when they are all looking in different directions. I cannot recommend her enough. If you’re on the fence, stop wondering. She’s excellent
Kelsey is an absolutely brilliant and professional photographer! She photographed our wedding and produced absolutely stunning photos, while seamlessly disappearing into the crowd! The turn around on the images was incredibly quick, and worth waiting much longer for! She amazingly personable, super reasonably priced and who I will turn to for all my photography needs in the future! She truly helped us capture how special the day was!
Kelsey was the photographer for my brother's wedding, and did a wonderful job. Kelsey showed up an hour early to the venue before the guests, as well as the bride and groom. This was so she scope the grounds beforehand in order to find the best shots for pictures when the time came. She was great with organizing the bridesmaids, groomsmen, parents and family no matter how scattered across the venue they were for beautiful shots (hard to do with 45+ people). The actual pictures themselves are wonderful and our family could not be more happy with what she could deliver to my brother and sister in law's special day! I wouldn't expect anything less, with 10 years of experience Kelsey is the lady to go to
Kelsey was recommended to me by multiple women on a Facebook mums group. I was looking for a photographer for a Maternity shoot with my fiancé. Kelsey was friendly positive upbeat and left my fiancé open to the experience of being photographed holding my belly or looking romantically into my eyes. Once our son was born Kelsey did the one month photography shoot we were all very tired but the photos turned out great and we have something to cherish for our sons life. We have also chosen to have her as our wedding photographer because she really was that fun! She always stays on the budget that we’re looking for and the photos turn out fantastic! what more could you ask for?
I booked a Mommy and Me photo session for Mother’s Day and I couldn’t be happier. Kelsey is so friendly and personable and made it easy. It was rainy on the day we had scheduled the shoot, and she contacted me and asked if I wanted to wait till better weather or move ahead with the session. We re scheduled in hopes of sun shine (and we got it! ) not a lot of photographers would be willing to be that accommodating and I greatly appreciated that. I am so unbelievably happy with the photos and I will cherish them forever! Thank you so much for this experience on my first Mother’s Day Kelsey, you helped make it a special one
10/10 would recommend Kelsey for your photography needs!!
I was a little nervous before the shoot as I've never done anything like it before and I thought it may be an awkward experience but from the minute she said hello both Tyson and I felt comfortable and warm and not at all awkward. She made the experience very easy-going and fun.
She is also such a sweet heart and was very flexible and accommodating of our busy schedules and the ever-changing weather conditions.
To top it all off, I was nothing but happy with the photo results. She is clearly very talented behind the camera!!
