Kelsy Nielson Photographer – Blog » Recent Edmonton Wedding Photography from Kelsy Nielson

Any time I get to photograph a family in a place that’s near and dear to them it makes my heart so happy. I was lucky enough to photograph the Packford Family out at their cabin on Wabamum Lake on a warm summer evening. We roasted marshmallows, played in the water,  created some art and just hung out in their favourite place. It was one of those perfect summer evenings. Kayla even made me the most delicious, melty s’more you could imagine.  If every session could be as fun (and tasty!) and I’d be one happy photographer.

If you’re thinking about booking a family session for this summer, let’s connect and chat about all the places your family loves. I’m sure we can create some magic together.

    Beautiful photos and what an amazing way to remember such a special place. Great work as always.

I first met Kassey & Alex a few years ago when I photographed their beautiful wedding and engagement session. I’m so happy they’ve now become friends and I’ve been able to watch their family grow. Like I’ve said before, it’s a honour to be a continual part of my clients lives.  Kassey is the face behind the blog The Lovely Ordinary and I love following along with their family adventures through social media. Recently their family grew from three to four….okay so not so recently since little Emma is now one (hides face in shame from my lack of blogging over the last year).  But regardless, their little girls are adorable and this family makes me smile every time I see them. There were so many moments I loved from this session, particularly when big sister Thea decided she wanted to hold baby sister….only to change her mind 2 seconds laters. Yep, I love toddlers 😉

Thanks again Kassey and Alex for having me in your home again to photographed another beautiful baby girl. Looking forward to documenting many more big family moments with you all <3





Spoiler alert- Holly and Bill had a beautiful baby girl who just turned one last month!  But that’s not stopping me from sharing how beautiful Holly looked while Pregnant with little Miss Hayden. While I may be behind in blogging, how could I not share these frosty trees and this adorable belly?  I also loved this session because we were able to shoot inside the nursery-to-be as they were building their dream home. Being able to capture different parts of my clients lives- through the transitions and times of anticipation- is one of my very  favourite parts of my job.

Looking forward to seeing you all again soon,





I nearly jumped out of my chair in excitement when I received an email from long-time client, Courtenay, saying she was expecting twins.  I’ve loved photographing this family so many times, starting years ago with their engagement session. It’s been amazing watching them grow into the family they are today.  So when I found out the big news, I was thrilled to hear that they would be adding 2 more to their family . Of course, the twins are adorable. I was smitten with them from first glance- like come on, check out those perfect round faces. Little Hannah was adorable too- in fact she may have stolen the show more then once 😉

Thanks again M family for having me over to document another giant life event. I’m already looking forward to our session this summer to see how much they’ve grown.

    We love having you photograph our family Kelsy! Thanks for the memories of our tiny twins and two year old Hannah!

    Still admire the amazing wedding photos you took of Trev & Court at the Wndspeare and powered through the day after reacting to a hornet bite the day before. You continue to do amazing work capturing special images of our Grandbabies!

Katherine and Stephan are a couple of awesome people. I laughed all through their engagement session and even more throughout their wedding.  The pink blossoms were the perfect touch for this springtime session in Edmonton and I’m so glad we could take advantage. The apple blossoms are so pretty but oh so fleeting in our northern city.  I also love when couples add in their own personal touches, like adding Katherine’s bike for a few images.   Combine a beautiful flowering location along with some setting sun, an adorable bike,  two awesome people, and lots of laughs, and you’ve got a perfect evening. Thanks Katherine and Stephan for sharing it with me.
