Katelyn is a wedding + lifestyle photographer based out of Calgary, AB. She lives in the heart of downtown Calgary with her cat kids and husband. Most days you can find her forcefully cuddling her cats, (they love it, she swears), convincing her husband she’s hilarious or enjoying a cold cup of coffee. Not by choice it just happens. To her, exclamation marks are the new period (she apologizes in advance), and people are her true inspiration. She lives for the honest, small moments both messy and sweet. She strives to document couples the way they are together. The way they move together, laugh together and who they are in that moment.
Vanessa has over seven years of experience owning her wedding, portrait, and brand photography business.

Camryn is a portrait, wedding, and brand photographer from Winnipeg, MB! She’s a pretty driven gal: she knew straight out of high school that photography was something she wanted to pursue. With that in mind, she decided to attend Prairieview School of Photography and graduated with a diploma in professional photography. From there, things just kinda took off! She’s now been in the business for 5 years and has been shooting portraits and brand work for about 3 years. Aside from shooting, she loves helping out in all other aspects of a session! Whether it's location scouting, posing, or even wardrobe styling, she is here to help her clients' session dreams come true.

Jess does it all. From social media to event planning to design work, she’s a talented creative, who works alongside Brooke on a variety of Stay Close tasks. Jess comes with a background of photography knowledge being a photographer herself and loves being involved in all the going ons of Stay Close. She’s almost always dreaming up or planning a new adventure, whether it be a weekend by the lake or a vacation somewhere warm. Her home is its own little oasis with over 25 plants to keep her company over our long Canadian winters, (winters she despises.) Jess joined Stay Close in late 2021 and is so excited to help nurture and grow Stay Close.
