People. Celebration. Genuine connection. The perfectly imperfect.

"My fiance and I could not have loved working with Kalen more! As we were deciding on a photographer to capture our engagement photos, we absolutely fell in love with her mantra of "capture the fleeting." On the day of our shoot, Kalen found the perfect location and made us feel totally comfortable in front of the camera. Though she promised to get the photos back to us within a month, she actually turned them around in a week! We are completely obsessed with how our photos turned out and everyone we share them with comments how perfectly they capture our love. We are so excited to have her capture our wedding!" - Kim Turano + AJ

"We are so glad we chose Kalen for our wedding photos! Her pictures speak for themselves, we're completely pleased with how the whole ceremony and reception was captured. From directing us (as pretty indecisive people that didn't know all the best angles and ways to organize the guests) throughout the events, to engaging people in each shot, she wasn't 'just' our wedding photographer, she was also very much involved in aspects of the wedding planning. She's that thorough and invested in making your event exactly what you want it to be. We had an outdoor ceremony and an indoor reception, both of which were perfectly photographed. We highly recommend Kalen Jesse Photography to any friends and family that need a photographer along the front range." -Skylar and Adam

"Kalen took our elopement photos and we trusted her throughout the entire process. She suggested a beautiful location for a sunrise wedding. She captured lighting, angles and moments so well and was so professional the entire time. Kalen trucked up to evergreen with us and gave us the magical elopement experience that so few people get to have. I am not particularly comfortable having my picture taken and Kalen made me feel like a queen on my special day! Tall or short, slim or thick, Kalen will show the world your true shine on your wedding day ❤️thank you from the bottom of my heart always. What a memorable experience! " -Kamiya +Tess

"My fiancé and I hired Kalen as our wedding photographer for our upcoming wedding in February 2022. We took our engagement photos a few weekends ago and the experience was outstanding. Kalen made us feel comfortable and made the day so fun! Prior to the shoot I was very nervous but Kalen’s positive energy and knowledge made those nerves melt away. Plus our photos are breathtaking, making it difficult to pick our favorites. Kalen’s talent is obvious in the quality of these photos! Weddings are stressful but hiring Kalen was the best decision we’ve made to date!" -Mary Jo + Nick

"My fiancé and I did our engagement and wedding pictures with Kalen and not only are the photos stunning, she was great at directing us, making us both feel comfortable, and delivered the final product so fast! She was even able to capture the most amazing pictures of our four month old puppy and we couldn't be happier! We absolutely recommend Kalen" -Sydney + Henry

"We had the opportunity to do our engagement shoot with Kalen this past weekend and had such a great experience. I am never that comfortable in front of the camera and really appreciated how comfortable she made me feel by asking questions, giving me ideas of what to do, fixing my hair, and making me laugh at myself and my fiance :) The photos are perfect and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Highly recommend Kalen if you are looking for a photographer!" -Devon + Viatch

"I could feel the passion oozing from her. After spending time chatting with her I realized she would be the perfect photographer for my upcoming wedding. She is incredibly personable and takes the time to listen and get to know her subjects. She is brilliant at capturing the spirit of the moment and of course has an incredibly artistic eye. Such a joy to work with, I wish I had an excuse to use a professional photographer every month because Kalen would be my go to choice." Jennifer + Michael
