   My name is Kenzie Wyatt, and I am a photographer + brand consultant in the midwest.

I specialize in commercial + editorial portrait photography, with an emphasis on working with brands, products, + the people behind them. My all encompassing hope is to always value people over business, connection over commodity, + to use the privilege I have to advocate for those who cannot. With the innate need in all of us being survival + connection, I strive to empathize + showcase those who are marginalized, oppressed, outspoken, + silenced.

I love taking on unique projects with underlying meaning. Let’s create something together for people, the planet, + it’s animals.
