why a destination wedding?

An experience thats all about you

I’m completely convinced that destination weddings are the best way to get married; an entire week or more spent enjoying sandy beaches, blue waters, tropical gardens, surrounded by your favorite humans ever.
If your'e desiring a wedding and bucket list vacation all in one, then a destination wedding is for you, the sky is the limit on the places you can travel to!  

what next?!

Contact me with your plans! We can set up a call, FaceTime, or Zoom so I can answer all of your questions. I would love to learn about the two of you and your wedding dreams! Once your ready to set the date, I'll send my contract over.
I will be in touch to make sure your timeline runs smoothly, that you get all of the photos you want, and that your day is stress free! 
I'll arrive at your wedding location two days before to scout out great photo spots and stay for 4 nights. You will have access to me the entire time. I'll send you some sneak peeks before I fly home, and not long after that, your whole wedding gallery will be ready for download.

lets go!

"She went above and beyond."

Kelly was phenomenal to work with! We did a cruise wedding with the wedding/reception off the ship at a beach club. Kelly came right along with us on the cruise; she found the perfect places to take sunset pictures on the ship, the best spots to take pictures at the wedding venue, she coordinated everyone (32) of us well for poses for pictures, and she captured everything for us! Our wedding photos turned out beautifully!
