Does anyone know why it’s called a “Bucket List”? Please share if you do.
Since going full-time in photography at the end of September of this year, I’ve realized I’m in a crazy good position to travel the world! I just get hired by a couple in New Zealand for a wedding and goooo! Yeah, right, I wish it was that simple. I doubt there is a single person in that wonderland that knows I even exist. I’ll still keep my hopes high and share what exactly is on that bucket list of mine.
1/ New Zealand – OMGSH I cannot wait to go there. I already have a bag packed for whoever is ready to hire me!
2/ Canda – umm hello nicest people ever! Seriously, it’s not just a rumor. I’ve been to Cancun twice, and each time, I met a group of Canadians that I absolutely adored. Maybe the cold just runs the rude right out of people? Let me know if that’s ever a social experiment. It’s also gorgeous from what I can tell from over here in Texas.
3/ Any coast – yeah, I know, beach weddings are a little early 2000s, but I still love them and who can say no to an ocean view?
4/ Yosemite – PLEASE. This one isn’t even that far. I’m literally begging to shoot a wedding here.
5/ Ireland – no words needed. I just want to go there and drink at a pub.
6/ Australia – my parents have been there for mission work and have a good friend there. They’ve never taken me though (rude, I know). I want to bask in the sun there but also stay very far away from those massive spiders.
7/ Terilingua – I’ve been, just haven’t taken my camera before. My stepdad took me on a week-long trip on his motorcycle there and to Big Bend. Loads of fun, but I need to take photos there next time I go.
1/ Hike to a mountaintop with a couple and capture every second of their love for each other.
2/ Catch fresh seafood from the coast
3/ Provide free photography services to someone who cannot afford it in a developing country
4/ Help a small business with photography services
5/ Teach 100 children and young people each year about photography
1/ 1M followers on Instagram
2/ A solid college fund for my son and any future kids
3/ Gain local and national support for my community outreach program to teach our youth about photography and donate at least five cameras per year to kids who cannot afford them
4/ Finish writing my book
5/ Become fluent in another language
6/ Make veganism my normal diet without extra effort
I’m sure there’s more that I haven’t thought of today. Writing this stuff out helps so much in staying positive and moving forward to reach goals. I encourage you to do the same!

"Choosing Kensey to be our photographer for our wedding and engagement photos, was the best wedding decision we made! When planning for our wedding, we made a decision that photos were going to be our top priority since they last a lifetime and beyond.My family was blown away by how good Kensey was and kept asking me how I found her. It was definitely a blessing that I will be thankful for for a lifetime!"
"Kensey’s passion and dedication for making your wedding vision come to life is absolutely incredible."

"Kensey was amazing from day one! I hired her to be the photographer for my daughter's engagement photos. We were so impressed that we booked her immediately for the wedding. She went above and beyond to make us happy and that is saying a lot considering we have such a big family! She went with the flow and anything we threw her direction she did with a smile on her face. She helped make my daughter's day the most perfect day and now we have the memories to prove it. Don't hesitate to book Kensey! Book her now!!"

My husband and I were so happy with Kensey. She is very professional, yet personable and fun! She’s invested in her couples and does everything she can to meet every need. She even had a sewing kit when my husbands button popped off of his jacket and held onto my shawl just in case I needed it during the wedding since it was a little chilly out! She is so easy to communicate with and captured so many amazing moments. We’re so happy with our photos and will cherish them for a lifetime.
