kindred photo & video

make original memories



We are excited to finally share that Kindred is moving to Texas! We will be sad to say goodbye to our amazing Indiana clients (Fear not though!! We’ll be back many times through 2018 to honor wedding contracts, certificates and other scheduled events- so we may see you!!) Please keep in touch, as we have loved being a part of your memories and would love to stay connected! We will still be booking sessions in Indiana during our visits- don’t hesitate to ask for available dates.

My husband, Josh, and I fell in love with Texas in 2006 and have always envisioned ourselves growing old there. My business partner, David, recently visited there several times and decided he liked the idea as well. We’re loving the prospect of being able to do outdoor photography/videography year round!! There is a new office and studio space in the works!

Thank you for believing in our work, hiring us to capture your memories, and for the 120 weddings experience you’ve given us here in Indiana and beyond. We feel so blessed, thank you!! Love you guys!!

Who is Kindred?

Welcome to Kindred Photo & Video!

Kindred is a collaboration between two friends.  David began his video journey in 2010 and ventured into photography in early 2015.  Carrie began her photography adventure in 2002 with film, graduated to digital in 2005, then added videography in 2015.  With similar hobbies, skills and years of shared jobs, they decided to merge their talents and offer clients more.  Thus, Kindred was born.

Feel free to contact for information or pricing for services.  If you’d like to “get to know your crew”  check out these posts for more info-

Lake Fork Backyard Wedding {swoon}

When best friends say ‘I do.”
Aaron and Katie’s wedding yesterday was pure perfection. Every detail was lovingly thought over, especially this precious abbreviation on the alter above them ILYMTYLTT in memory of what Grandpa would tell Grandma- I love you more today yet less than tomorrow….
I can’t wait to show you more!


We would love to have you check us out on facebook, here’s a link:

Bridal Session : Ennis, Texas.

This is Sammie Jo, she is A KNOCKOUT.  GORGEOUS as all get out and has a heart of gold.  We SOOO enjoyed doing her bridal session at Winding Brooks in Ennis, Texas.  The sun was at it’s perfect golden hour spot – raining perfect light down on our subject.  It could not have been a better day for this portrait session.  We were thrilled!

Kindred Shenanigans

It’s SO TRUE.  Life is better when you’re laughing.

This is a philosophy here for us at Kindred in the office and on the road doing projects.  We are always up for a good laugh.




GIVE US THE WEEKEND PLEASE.IMG_4002IMG_4148IMG_413559C0611B-114E-4F5E-A203-FF32CB708A50

Dallas, Texas.

Dallas after dark.  We love it!!

So much spirit and energy in this amazing city.KPV_4966.jpg

Ennis, Texas : Winding Brooks

OOOOOh, who doesn’t love the details?!  Here are just a few of the fun detail shots from Sammie Jo and Cody’s dreamy Texas wedding up in Ennis.  Winding Brooks was the PERFECT venue for this country wedding.  We LOVED all of these amazing touches.  Check them out for some inspiration.  Feel free to pin a few to your pinterest boards if they suit your style!


Dallas Engagement + Fireworks

Engagement sessions have always been a Kindred Team favorite.  Capturing love is such a blessing, everything about it screams JOY, not job.  This is not a job to us, this is our heart and soul!  We are so thankful and blessed by our clients.

This session was no exception.  We met this lovely couple at Turtle Creek and ventured over to Trinity Skywalk afterwards.  What luck we had, as fireworks were lit at the very end of our session allowing us to capture even more magic along the way.  So grateful for our time in the lovely city of Dallas.


Monica + Brock

Y’all… You wouldn’t even believe everything we did yesterday if we told you all of it. What a great day! We were booked online for a wedding by a sweet friend of this couple (Huge shout out to Brette because she is amazing!) We found out about it at noon-ish and met these two at 2:45, but they are the kind of people you instantly feel like you have known for years. So glad we could be there to capture their vows. Then, afterwards, at the end our photos downtown in Tyler, we got caught in a downpour. (Insert another shout out here for David who ran a block to grab the car and get the three of us) We were soaked, but it was hilariously fun!! (And yes, we did go to our next session looking like we’d been swimming- lol)

Thank you, Monica and Brock for just being you, you guys are the best. We hope to see you a lot in the future.



These are hands of warriors.
A brother and sister both in their 20’s fighting cancer, and the Momma who is backing them up in their fight.
Yesterday we met two of the bravest young people, and one of the strongest Mommas on the planet. Cancer knows no boundaries. It has taken so many we love, and ravaged many hearts, but there are many survivors too. We want to remember all of them today. All the people effected by this horrible beast we call cancer. Share if you or a loved one have fought or are fighting.
We’ll continue to keep praying, keep loving, keep donating until this wretched disease is cured on all levels.
