I founded this dream of mine 12 years ago in my college dorm room. Since then I’ve photographed over 300 weddings and improved quite a few having an actual office. I married my husband Dan 9 years ago. I’m a mama to two crazy boys named Luca and Enzo, and have a snuggly puppy named Crosby. You’ll always find me chasing the good light and you’ll know when we’ve found the perfect light (I have a special dance). My ideal Friday night is sitting at a brewery sipping a hazy IPA and playing cards with my husband. I’m always planning my next vacation - everywhere & anywhere, but Italy will always hold a special place in my heart. 

Your joyful, adventurous Minneapolis wedding photographer.

a little about me

Putting together a bad-ass charcuterie board. Adding about 14 too many exclamation points into any e-mail!!! Always loving the brightest colors - orange is my fave! My obsessive collection of houseplants. Reading 3 books at any given time.

I'm kendra and I'm a Podcast Junkie

That Sounds Fun with Annie Downs


eternal wanderlust

My heart comes alive when I travel. Whether it’s sitting next to an ocean or zipping around the narrowest Italian streets in a Fiat, it’s always an adventure to me. Seeing other places, people and cultures refuels my creativity and inspires me immensely. 



Gathering people is my love language. If you come to my table there’s a good chance tacos, a kickin’ guac and a strong margarita are on the menu. I strongly believe that life & friendship happen around a table sharing food and value everyone who walks through my door. Life is better lived in community.



I’m a 7. Tried & true. Eternal optimist and forever adventurer. If you love the Enneagram too, tell me your number! If you haven’t heard of it and you’re interested, take the test by clicking below:

KOP values

Our Heart

I respect and honor the value of family  and promise to show that in your images. What drives me in this business is the picture of you sitting with your grandchildren in 60 years showing them your wedding photos. I want the images to still make your heart swell with joy and for you to be proud to show them. My hope is that these images are a constant reminder the vows you shared, even in the hardest of times.

#1 creating a legacy

It's important for me to communicate clearly & quickly to you, to send images in the promised timelines, and to deliver to you images that are authentic to my brand, which is why you've hired me.  I vow to put my heart and soul into your wedding day as if it were my own to be able to truly show you the joy and asthetic that was present on the day.

#2 Honesty & Authenticity

One of the best parts of your wedding day is the fact that's it's the only day you will be surrounded by your entire tribe - family, friends, friend's parents who have felt like your own at times, college roommates, etc. It's an incredible feeling. Community is a huge value for me and I will take care of your community. I will remind you to take a deep breath, sneak into a corner of your reception and just take it all in. It's a beautiful sight.
What is life without your closest people?

#3 Community
