Kerri & Derek

Get to Know Us

Hi, I'm Kerri Lynne

Hello There,
I'm Kerri Lynne

MEET THE COLES

I'm a wedding photographer in Central New York, I'm a wife to my best friend Derek, a sister, a daughter, and a friend. I am a foodie, and believe in celebrating and savoring the sweet moments in life. I am also a deep soul, and love good conversation. I am up for almost any adventure, and I love hiking, the great outdoors, and being surrounded by beauty. I love the Lord, and finding gratitude for all the gifts He gives me each day. I use my camera as an instrument of daily gratitude, and to help the couples I meet to come alive and show their sweet love and joy!

A few things I love:

*Fall, it's my favorite season. I love warm colors, the smell of crisp air, and wearing boots and scarves!
*Ice cream, Mexican tacos and Italian food. I am a foodie for sure!
*Hardcover books. No matter what happens with the digital age I love reading and holding onto books with real covers!
*Sleeping in - I actually try not to make any appointments before 9 am!
*Coffee mugs - I have tons with different quotes and inspirational sayings - because each morning needs something different, right?!

Wedding photographer & educator

I met my husband Derek downtown Syracuse, where he was volunteering at the Hopeprint House! We realized that we both loved the Lord, the outdoors, and both thought the other person was extremely cute! We dated long distance for 2 years before I moved here to upstate New York, and we were married in October 2017! Derek is truly my compliment, being much more practical, yet more extroverted and spontaneous than I am. What would I do without him! He adds so much joy into my life! Derek is also a great photographer and I love having him on my team as much as possible, in life and in work! We are really better together and I am so blessed to have him by my side.

It's always lit up my heart to chase light prior to sunset.  That unknown of...how magical will it be?  What will the colors do?  How will the light change the way everything around me looks and feels?!  I have always loved chasing sunsets.  So now, I have a blast chasing light with every client I photograph and inviting them into that adventure with me!!

Chasing Light

what I Love

Derek is the love of my life and my adventure partner, and I couldn't imagine life without him!  We were married on October 29, 2017 - and marriage has been such a beautiful journey for us.  Growing in love has been the sweetest gift I have ever received and I am grateful for it every day!

My Husband

what I Love

I was an Education major in college before studying photography and design - so it is SUCH a joy for me now to teach others what I have loved learning myself!  Being a combination of self-taught and professionally trained, I want to make that journey easier for others and equip them to be better photographers and entrepreneurs!

Teaching Others

what I Love

Whether it's an afternoon hike, a paddle in a lake at sunset, or camping atop a high peak in the Adirondacks, my heart loves adventure and loves the process it takes to discover beauty in the world around me.  I love the serenity of being in nature and reflecting on life.  I love any adventure with my husband Derek, who is such an amazing leader and caretaker!

Adventure

what I Love

I am obsessed with coffee mugs with cute sayings, one I can grab onto in the morning when I feel like starting my day inspired!  I love that I have a cabinet full of different colors and sayings, so every day is the start of something new!

Coffee Mugs

what I Love

Chasing love, light and adventure every day and living with gratitude

LET'S BE INSTA-FRIENDS
