Meet the Mavens

Kelly is the Owner and Creative Director at Maven. She ignited her passion for event planning while working for an international nonprofit – bringing her all around the world to plan events. Her background is in nonprofit fundraising and development, so she understands how to stretch a dollar to make a big impact. She enjoys the event planning process and helping people express themselves through all the details!

Anyone who knows her can tell you that she loves, love. Born on Valentine’s Day, she thought everyone appreciated when people fell in love and how they celebrated big moments as much as she did, but quickly realized she was a hopeless romantic and started planning weddings for those around her.


Her personal event planning philosophy is rooted in the guest experience and enjoys seeing the power an event can have on a person by striking that elusive balance between celebration and adrenaline rush. She gets the most joy from seeing an entire crowd share an authentic moment that cannot be forgotten. When Kelly is not on the job, she’s eating her way through Minneapolis, traveling with her extremely handsome husband, taking care of her son, Monty, and baby girl, Gigi, or spending time with family.

It was such a joy to capture Mother's day portraits for Kelly and her family. It was truly an honor to capture and preserve your special moments.
