About Me

Who is Behind All This?

For starters – yes, my name really is Kalypso! It was kind of a love for Jacques Cousteau + John Denver’s tribute to him,”Aye Calyspo” along with a dash of Calypso Music that really brought it home for my dad…as always – mom went along with his crazy antics. At this point it probably goes without saying that we’re kind of an eclectic family!

Kalypso

I was born and raised in rural Flagler County, Fl. and spent a handful of years in St. Augustine where I met my ever-so-patient other half – Roma. You’ll likely see Roma at your wedding hauling my equipment around, reminding me to drink water, and setting up/working the Dream Machine Photobooth with your guests. We are currently rocking the tiny home life, with our sassy cat – Dolly Parton (talk about an adventure!) After a lifetime of planning and plotting, we are finally transplanted to 18 acres in the foothills of the Blueridge Mountains in Western North Carolina – my happy place! We LOVE a good adventure and gladly accept any excuse to travel.

I am an Enneagram 9 AND a Pisces – so you know, I’ll be crying at your wedding for sure. When I’m not traveling around capturing you love birds and your families, I can usually be found twirling around in front of some live music with an IPA in hand or rehabbing a new wildlife friend in need. Our home has always been a safe haven for animals, and somehow – they all know it! I accept my animals in every shape, size, color, and preference – and feel the very same way about my humans. There’s no room for anything other than love around here!

Over the years I’ve realized that it’s incredibly important to have a connection between the client + photographer. In my opinion, it’s no fun when we know nothing about each other and aren’t able to banter back and forth and relate on some level or another. I love getting together with my clients prior to (or in the middle of) a session, whether it’s a drink-drink or some coffee – I’m there!
