Everyone, I’d love for you to meet Kelsey. She is one amazing, multi-talented entrepreneur.
When I was first introduced to her, it was during the first ever Wedded Weekend, a retreat specifically for wedding photographers. In addition to many styled and themed wedding scenes and models for each, there were learning workshops on lighting and other fun things like beginning calligraphy. The retreat was amazing and it was certainly impressive how it was all organized and planned. All her idea. Kudos, Kelsey! Plans are set for Wedded Weekend 2018 which will be held in Round Top, Texas at Rancho Pillow and The Prairie. There are very few spaces left so check out the site if you want to get in on the fun: Wedded Weekend 2018.
In addition to being a visionary who can set and achieve her creative goals, she is the force behind Styled by Kelsey V. She offers concierge hair and makeup to brides, seniors and anyone prepping for a photo session in and around Houston and Austin. It was also pretty impressive to me that she used her talents to give back in a big way: earlier this year, she travelled to Thailand for Shear Love International, a beauty education program that provides women and men the opportunity for a sustainable education and dignified career.
And if that’s not enough, Kelsey also owns Styled Startup. This business doesn’t just serve as a small business virtual assistant. Styled Startup offers your business an accountability partner (helping you set your business goals and plan out the steps along the way to meet them), social media marketing strategy (plus scheduling and posting), corporate event and retreat planning AND virtual assisting. That’s quite a lot!
Kelsey gave me the gift of her time plus she brought along her office assistant, River. We got to spend a bit of time working on portraits of her in her element which is really anywhere she can set up her computer and connect to wifi. I love how she came dressed with her corporate identity colors! Here are a few of my personal favorites:
