Hello, I'm Keilani


I'm so delighted you've found this little space of mine...


Sharing a little bit about me doesn't come easy, so here it goes!

I'm a native New Yorker who transplanted to Charlotte, NC 12 years ago! Yes, I still have the accent, some things will never change!  I love all things vintage and prefer the simplier things in life.  Love to spend time with my family and love to travel when I can. Books are my chocolate!  Mountains or beach?  Beach with extra flip flops please!  Obsessed with vinyl records and all things consignment please! Love me some Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett! Add in the 80's and it's Old Hollywood meets Culture Club inside my head at any given time! 


But here's the cherry on top...


I specialize in Documentary, Elopement & Intimate Wedding Photography. To me, Photography is writing with light, and life moves too fast not to capture all your special moments to savor later. 

Thirteen years ago I had an Intimate Wedding, and here I am now photographing the love stories of others. Pretty amazing!


I adore the elopements, the love stories, the off-the-beat side of the Bride & Groom. Whether you are renewing your vows or say "I do" barefoot in a field of sunflowers. I'm your Photographer...that just might be barefoot right along with you!


Because of how much I adore the love stories, I created Big Love Small Weddings. A wedding website blog for all things Elopements & Intimate Weddings. The perfect platform for the couple who is planning a purposeful wedding with more love and no stress!  


When I'm not photographing a wedding, you'll find me documenting a family. I love to document the authenticity of a day-in-the life session of a family. These sessions are documented in black & white which is my specialty and favorite!


I look forward to working with you!


Blessings & Cheers,


Charlotte, NC Documentary Elopement & Intimate Wedding Photographer
