Our Story

Together... We inspire.

      t all started late one night with a wedding photographer anxiously feeling the butterflies, in need of a confidence boost.  We all need a place to turn to when life gets real; where we can feel safe to express our fears + not feel so alone. 

Butterflies + Confidence began with a passion for inspiring confidence to help everyone believe in themselves + find their key to success.  The open hearts in our community truly made it blossom into so much more than I ever imagined.  Our desire is to give this gift of connection to everyone.  The true power of Butterflies + Confidence is supporting each other with an open heart.  XO

XO,

         y daughter Aliya, is the truest source of my inspiration. My proudest   accomplishment as a photographer is capturing this photo. To see the world through her eyes has changed my life forever.  She has taught me so many

lessons about life.  My hopes are someday we'll all find truer self confidence, which helps us to focus less energy inward + believing in and supporting others. Becoming more compassionate + connected communities, creating a beautiful world for our children to grow up in.  Butterflies + Confidence is our start on this journey.

Megan Kelsey

Hi there!!  My name is Megan, and I'm a Virginia & Destination Wedding Photographer with a passion for capturing and encouraging beautiful marriages. On May 29th, 2016 I married my high school sweetheart (7 years strong!) & I'm still walking on cloud nine... even though cloud nine is currently between piles of boxes in our new one bedroom apartment :) I'm drawn to all things vintage and antique; everything (and everyone) has a story to tell if we lean in close enough to listen. I could watch the waves crash on the beach for hours on end, I have a mild obsession with lemons, & there's just something about the great city of London that has completely stolen my history-loving heart. Give me my camera & my passport and I've never felt more alive.

I believe LOVE should be the reason for everything we do, and I believe that calling to love comes from a higher place. I'm excited to share how learning the definition of unconditional love has changed my life, and I can't wait to meet you at the first ever BC4 Creatives conference this August! 

love unconditionally

Danielle Blocker

Hello!  I'm Dani, the founder + visionary of Butterflies + Confidence!!!  My passion for inspiring confidence comes from my own journey to finding true self confidence.  As a Rising Tide Society co-leader and Shoot & Share leader, I love teaching + watching the evolution as creatives grow more confident each time we meet!!!

Life is like an ocean.  "When life happens" is all about surviving life.  One day, I woke up + a tidal wave obliterated everything I'd worked so hard for, because of an injury from a car accident that has changed my life forever.  I'm chasing hope with all my heart and it is my greatest hope that we can help you stay strong when life happens.  Everyone has a story, in their past, present + future.  We all need to love + support each other as we work together in the creative industry.

Hi Sunshine!
   I'm Nicki, first off- let me start by saying I'm 4'11". Shawty, right? When you first meet me, you might have to look down! ;-) I like to remind people that big things come in small packages, like dynamite! I'm a mountain girl from Blacksburg, Virginia with a Californian soul. I'm a die-hard Hokie fan, so much so that my 1.2 year old Labradoodle's name is Hokie.

I'm married to my husband who is my complete opposite but sharpens me every day!! He's 6 foot tall, funny, right?  I love Cafe Latte coffee, reading, snuggling with Hokie, watching documentaries, & The Bachelor.  I'm the owner of Nicki Metcalf Photography specializing in wedding photography and LOVE what I do. I'm engulfed in the most beautiful day of people's lives, who wouldn't like that? Lastly I'm a joy seeker looking to live life to the fullest!!!
