Hey there! My name is @kelseaholderphoto and I’m a #filmphotographer based in San Luis Obispo, California, AKA #thehappiestplaceonearth. ✨ Honestly, it’s true. I love dreaming big, but living small with my pup, Hila, in a beautiful little town tucked between the California coastline and the Nine Sisters, a beautiful chain of green hills. This photo was taken at a place I love to visit and that means a lot to me—my grandparents house in Santa Ynez. No, they don’t live in that “Shrek-like” house. 😂 But my grandfather did build it, along with 2 full-sized homes completely by himself from literally nothing but a dirt parcel. He’d add a little every day after he would get home from work when my mom was growing up in the ‘70s. And man, he had/still has good taste! They’re minimal, yet have unique and quirky elements, and the landscaping is absolutely beautiful. My grandfather is still working after he gets home and creating/adding onto the main house—landscaping, building water features, etc., even into his 70s. His creativity and unbelievable work ethic inspire me with what I do. This same grandfather is the one who gave me my first camera as a kid, and now I’ve been photographing weddings professionally for years all over the world. Just like my grandfather spent years building his homes, it’s taken me years to build my business. And just like my grandfather, I’m still "adding on" and plan to stay inspired with no end in sight. #Film means so much to me and has been such a pivotal turning point in my career, so I am extremely excited to share more about my journey and experiences with you all! I couldn’t think of a better space to share than the very place that makes my creative dreams come true, @photovisionprints! Thank you guys for having me!! 😘
