rad + authentic + alllll the candids.
It's my job to make sure you feel comfortable in front of the camera, long enough to get those real moments, real smiles, real laughs, and real feels. And I take that job very serious, dahling. And I already know what you're thinking, "But we're so awkward in front of the camera, I don't want to look stiff and posed." Look around my website! Do you see awkward? Do you see stiff and posed? Hell nah! Do you see rockstars? Um..hell yea you do! Because this is what I do, and I got you! I make engagement sessions and wedding day couples portraits a BLAST and family photos super quick and extremely painless so you can get back to what's important...loving on bae and the open bar, I mean of course.
"[kelley] Your patience, calm, professionalism, light and spirit made the day even better and even more beautiful. Thank you, dear one."
"Finding Kelley sealed the deal for our planned elopement! The minute we saw her work, we wanted her to be our photographer. After meeting her (via Skype-and the day after we reached out to her!), we knew for sure she was the one. Our decision to elope was a culmination of a lot of desires for how we wanted our wedding day to go, including not being stressed. Kelley not only made us feel comfortable and ourselves, but made the day so incredibly fun and memorable! She is an absolute delight to work with, and her work is truly incredible. I am SO glad we chose her to capture our special day, and it was the best decision we made for our wedding, besides deciding to elope! I would recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing photographer who will be able to provide the highest quality work, and be TONS of fun to work with (which I believe is also so important!)"
Q:HOW would you describe your shooting/editing style?
A : I shoot/edit with feeling in mind. Feeling, vibe, essence, aura, whatever you call it, thats what I aim to capture. It's easy to capture what we see, but what about what we cant see? How will you remember how you felt? Storytelling is about more than just the what, its about the why as well. My photography can be categorized as moody over light and airy; documentary rather than fine art; lifestyle instead of traditional. I like my images to reflect real. I play with shadows. I capture tiny details that you may not even notice. I shoot the way I feel someone would want to remember. You can read more about why I shoot the way I shoot here.

A : After your wedding consultation, you will be able to pay a deposit to hold your date, then do a happy dance. Boom, booked!
