Hey, I'm Kourtney!


My name is Kourtney Perkins, born and raised in the second largest city in Michigan, Grand Rapids. I first started my photography journey in high school playing around with my point and shoot camera, taking photos of family and friends. After graduating high school, I then went to Grand Rapids Community College where I received my Associates degree in Arts with a focus in Photography. Continuing my journey after school and expanding my brand, I created KYP (Kourtney Yvonne or KEEP) Photography. My style is a combination of harmony, intricacy, glamour and naturalness. I aim to fulfill my client’s needs and capturing their kalopsia; beauty that is more than skin deep. My skills of editing, Photoshop, and retouching are intermediate; delivering quality photos to diminish any unwanted flaws – to meet the client’s expectations. While my passion is more geared towards portraits, I also love to do candids, weddings, professional headshots and events. In addition to developing photos, I love to design custom announcements, save the date’s, and invitations. 

KYP Photography’s mission is helping to create your vision!  We are dedicated to bringing out the best in you and creating a great experience to look back on for generations to come.

So go ahead and take a look at my portfolio and let’s start creating beautiful keepsakes together! I can’t wait to capture you through my lens!



“Kourtney was a delight to work with! We laughed, we vibed, and had an overall great time. She captured us as a couple to a T for our engagement photos! From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!”
