New brand, new level of service for you!
I can’t even believe the time is here! I’ve only been hinting at these “big changes coming soon” for months + months! If you have been following along with my, Kenzi’s, journey the last two years- WELCOME. New brand, new us. This change has been a long time coming. As we add to what we offer, learn to solve new problems for our clients and grow- Kenzi Shipley Photography now serves it’s clients on a whole new level. We fully specialize now in newborns, family, maternity and small weddings/ elopements. Specializing really allows us to serve you better than ever.
Here are the big changes with the new brand:
Guess who is my official MVP second shooter and wedding go to guy!?
Justin has officially joined the wedding side of the company- he is with me at every wedding, helps with email communication, culling.. and more! He has shot every wedding with me since day one, but we thought it was time it was official!
We niched down
We specialized- this means we’ve invested in special education and leaned what really gave Kenzi Shipley Photography the extra “sparkle.” So now we’re fully invested in extra special experiences in these few things, instead of having a broad amount of offerings that we weren’t fully invested in. Things we don’t do- single person portraits, seniors or brand work.
A brand that feels right
We have a brand now that fully embodies what gives us peace- desert vibes mixed with the rolling hills of Oregon. We are in love and feel like our brand is a little peep into our hearts. A thank you to Alisabeth Designs for getting us started in this direction.
PHOTO EDUCATION WITH KENZI IS LIVE! Fun fact- I believe one of my life callings is to teach. I’ve always believed mentoring + teaching is so valuable. Investing in my own photo education is how I built this business so fast and in doing so I learned first hand that not all photo education is worthwhile. I am passionate about giving a worthwhile experience- not holding anything back, all meat- no fluff. Here I share tangible marketing goodies as well as tons of examples of what I’ve done that works and what I’ve done that doesn’t. I want to see everyone accomplish their business goals + hit that pretty 6 figure mark that gives them the ability to live out their dreams. I could go on about this, but I’ll let you check out the photo education page instead.
Families are finally getting the space they deserve!
This page gives my families the spot that they deserve. My heart for family photography is massive, and finally I have a website that reflects it. Family photography is so special, so unique and so precious. It’s my truest passion. I believe one of my biggest callings in this world is to photograph family sessions through the years. It is one of the few things I believe I was most meant for and I’m so excited to share more and more of it with you! You can see a whole page devoted to it here! I also made special pages for newborns and maternity sessions as well!
Small Weddings + Elopements
Small weddings and elopements instead of big traditional weddings. Don’t get me wrong, we love both. Big weddings can be so fun + connected. They’re where we started in photography and they’re nothing we’ll stop doing. We decided to jump more into the small wedding/ elopement concept because we’ve been there and get it. Justin + I had a small wedding years before they are what they are now. We understand the pressures of turning away from the traditional experience and doing thing differently- even when it isn’t popular with everyone in your circle. We believe our own experiences coupled with a rise in need for small wedding pros (hello global pandemic) equips us to serve these small wedding/ elopement couples really well in this time. And our goal is to always be good guides and serve + love our couples well. See more about it here, on a page fully devoted to couples!
Kenzi Shipley Photography: A Brand that Reflects Our Hearts
So many big changes- I am so excited to keep up with you all through this page and continue offering you a photography experience flooded in connecting + authentic moments. Those thoughts of connection centered experiences and images truly inspired the brand you now see everywhere on this website. A brand and design that embodies the peacefulness + connectedness I strive for. To me, the Willamette Valley’s rolling alpine glow hills + Central Oregon’s warm desert bring me calm- and now so does my brand. I hope that you feel the same sense of calm seeing it too.
