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-

Toudouze Family, Texas.

I was so excited to meet this family. I knew going into it that they are a John Deere Family which being a John Deere Family ourselves- we loved that! What I didn’t know was that Michael used to be an NFL player for the Colts (Go figure, I lived in Indiana half my life and never met a Colts player until I moved to Texas lol). We sooo enjoyed working with them and seeing their patience in parenting, they are amazing people, and their children were absolute troopers during this hot humid day.

The vows!  The vows!!!

GypsySoul Images: Indiana

Leaving our small towns and moving to Texas was bittersweet.  We were sad to go, but thrilled for the new adventures.  Finishing out our contracts in Indiana has proven to be quite a task, (15 hour drive each way) but we wanted to honor our agreements.  Enter our second shooters- God provided us with an amazing team of people who have been willing to give up Saturdays to help out, and also learn the trade first hand.  One of those second shooters has been Paige of GypsySoul Images.

We literally  But, she’s already like family to us.  If you are looking for someone to capture the candid moments of your life, Paige is your girl.  So far we’ve had her along for 7 weddings, and her images have impressed us every time.  She’s been behind the lens for three years (9 weddings in all) and is such a passionate photographer with the best outlook on life.  Her loyalty, humor and thoughtfulness really stand out.  We encourage you to book with her if you are in Indiana or surrounding areas.  Click here to visit her website.

Our Gypsy Cowgirl

This is our Madelyn.  I’m so proud of this girl.  She’s the most responsible 12 year old you will meet.  She takes great care of her animals, 2 goats, 25 chickens, 6 ducks, 1 dog.  You get the picture, lol, she’s the best backyard farmer we know.  Her grandma recently bought her new cowgirl boots, and you know what you do when you get new boots!  Break ’em in (and get pictures doing it, if you have a photographer for a Mom, this is a must!)

Maddie is quite the photographer.  In a world full of people using cameras on “Auto” she can set all the settings herself and get the perfect exposure.  We’ll be posting an album of her work soon.  She’s been an amazing student of photography.  Check back for those fun photos!

We have loved meeting Sammie Jo and are so excited to be a part of her wedding this year too!  So many big milestones for her and her family!

Kindred Summer Sessions have begun!  We love doing these $100 sessions (no print charges, all files delivered digitally with copyright release).  We believe capturing summer memories should be affordable!  These moments with little kids are too precious not to capture.  Text us here at Kindred to set up an appointment/ get more info here in East Texas.  219- 208 -5282.  Give us a try, we love meeting new people!

We loved working with these little ladies, and this watermelon themed birthday was just too sweet!  These were taken at Maude Cobb in Longview, such a pretty spot!

Kylie & Paul.

What an awesome day this was!  Kylie and Paul are an amazing couple, and their daughter (Haedyn) definitely steals the show with her chubby cheeks and her spunky personality.  We really enjoyed being a part of this day, and being with this lovely family.  The maid of honor, Michaela, might look familiar to you as she second shoots with us often at weddings.  She is the sister to the bride, and a dear friend to us here at Kindred.  Enjoy this small preview of about 150 photos,  1,808 are shipping out tomorrow!!
