The creator behind all things Aspen & Co.
I started the company four years ago out of my hometown in Chicago, IL in the middle of the pandemic after graduating high school, and wanting to create a career for myself that didn’t involve going to college. What I thought was going to be a short term career fix turned into a full time business that now actively serves clients in 3 different countries (USA/Mexico/South Africa). After building standing success on the Chicago market I was fortunate enough to expand the company to Eastern Mexico’s beautiful Riviera Maya where I have lived part time for the last 2.5yrs. And more recently, I have been expanded to South Africa, where I am currently residing.

Hola friend!

We believe in capturing timeless, authentic moments

Love, MK

I was first introduced to photography when I was 13 years old. At that age I was the main photographer for our middle school’s yearbook which prompted my parents to invest in a camera for me after seeing how passionate I was about it. Shortly after that, my cousin got married and let me be a part of capturing their wedding photos alongside the wedding photographers they hired.

Once I had the opportunity to do that and got a glimpse of what was possible to create with my camera, everything aligned for me and I knew photography held a unique place in my life. I’m really passionate about photographing + filming couples, elopements (USA + international) and destination weddings. It is truly the coolest thing ever that I can combine my love for travel with creativity and work with couples in so many places! Whether your destination wedding, elopement or session is close to home in the Midwest or on the other side of the world, I’ll pack my bags and meet you there with my camera in hand!
