”By chasing our hopes and dreams, we inspire others to chase theirs--by being open and giving of our light, we lift the spirits of others, who then reflect light to another, and another.”
My name is Kali Norton. I'm a wedding and portrait photographer near New Orleans and truly have a wandering heart for many faucets of the creative world. Writing speaks to my soul and one of my biggest (and most scary) goals is to write a book one day. Among writing and taking pictures of genuine human connection, you can also find me constantly tweaking spaces in my home, always making new friends who fire me up about life, and honing in on any and every artsy project that peaks my interest along this crazy little life journey.
I've found that professional photographs of this crazy, beautiful life and the people that surround me have truly helped me find, inspiration, solace and beauty in what I HAVE instead of what else I want. They are priceless time capsules of organic beauty that I cannot wait to share with my children someday.
Think of your most perfect idea of how you want your wedding photos to turn out....and then somehow imagine them being even more than that. If Kali photographs your special day, I promise that you will have all the above and more! From the get-go, Kali extended the warmth, sincerity, and excitement she had for us and our wedding starting with great communication through emails, then meeting in person in New Orleans for a get-to-know-you lunch, and following up with us over Skype to plan once more before our big day. We can't say enough about Kali (and her husband Preston!) and how they made two people who aren't really comfortable being in the spotlight, at ease on a very long, emotion-filled day - the photographs are the proof, though. We both saw our wedding day with a whole new set of eyes and I could not stop smiling while reviewing each shot that was taken. We started with Kali as our wedding photographer, but ended the day with a life long friend. Thank you again!!
We've had the pleasure of working with Kali for our 3 year long engagement, so there was no question about her shooting our wedding! She takes the time to truly get to know her clients, and as a result, we've gained a friend! Lord knows how much I emailed or texted her about our vision for each of our shoots and our wedding, and she was patient and more than willing to help each time! Not to mention, she captures our vision to a T!!My husband and I are beyond grateful and blessed that we've been able to work with Kali over the past few years! Simply the best!
