testimonials and kind words

"Absolutely everyone warned me that the day of our wedding would be a blur, but I didn't realize just how true this was until we woke up the next morning. All of those carefully planned details, sacred moments, and even our surroundings hung in a bit of a fog, and I felt a little sad to have forgotten so much of a day that I had been looking forward to for so long -- until we received our photos back from Kelly. As we sat down together to pour over the images, the details of the day came rushing back (all the emotional toasts! My parents holding hands during the ceremony! And goodness, did I really get dipped during our first dance?), in perfect clarity. I was impressed with the way she had been able to blend into the background, as she had snapped some incredible shots without our managing to notice. Somehow, too, she had captured everything in a dreamy, ethereal light that even preserved the blissful fog we had experienced during and after the wedding.
Working with Kelly before the wedding was a dream, and between her kindness, thoughtful suggestions, and ability to work with any and all of our vendors, I always had confidence in our choice. . .but I still managed to underestimate the importance of that choice. Kelly has given us the greatest gift: memories of our wedding day, bathed in the most perfect light."

Kelly’s photos speak for themselves - they are stunningly beautiful and truly expressive. She captured the joy we felt at our wedding perfectly, and now looking back at the photos we feel it all over again. We’ve gotten TONS of compliments on how stunning our photos are; Kelly captured candids, posed shots, and composed stills all equally well.
But what made Kelly really, really wonderful was just how easy she is to work with. We had some last minute schedule changes and Kelly not only easily adapted, but she also kept us at ease with her cool calm and reassurance. She’s flexible, communicative, and most of all, kind and gentle. You spend quite a bit of time with your photographer on your wedding day, and we couldn’t be happier that we got to do that with Kelly. She brought out the best in us, and captured it in the best way. We are so grateful!

I can’t say enough good things about Kelly. To watch her work is simply magical. It warms your heart. There are times she doesn’t even look into the lens. It’s an art, her talent. It’s hard to explain but it’s effortless for her. During Trey and I's engagement shoot, he kept saying, “Wow I keep doing the same thing. These are going to be awkward.” All I could say was, “I realize you think that but trust her. She will capture a moment that you didn’t even realize was there.” And she did. After my wedding, Kelly posted a couple of photos online and everyone kept asking me who my photographer was and that my photos were amazing. Her photos are raw, natural and real. She has a gift of capturing beautiful moments, whether it be couples, a single person or nature. Her photos make you feel. You are moved by them. It’s not just a picture, it’s a moment stopped in time and that’s exactly what I wanted to remember when I looked back and my wedding photos...moments. What’s even better is that she’s humble, sweet and just all around good people.

I’ve had an absolutely delightful experience working with Kelly. We’ve worked together on a number of lifestyle related photoshoots and every time it’s been an amazing experience. Kelly is a very talented photographer but she’s also a skilled stylist, with a wonderful aesthetic, a great eye for composition, and a natural instinct for telling evocative stories through her work. One of the things I love most about her approach is that she really knows when a frame is done - it’s so hard to know when to add more to a vignette or when to take things away. She has a great and rare instinct for this. But beyond that, I’ve found Kelly to be an incredible person - professional, collaborative, intuitive and insightful - all the qualities I look for in a collaborator. She brings her absolute best to all she does which is why I jump at any chance to work with her.
