"We couldn't be happier..."

"We had Kelly come with us on our destination wedding and we couldn't be happier with the pictures! She listened to what we wanted and made recommendations based on her experience. We would absolutely hire her again and recommend her to friends and family."

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.

"Kelly was phenomenal to work with!"

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!

"Words cannot describe how absolutely perfect Kelly was..."

Words cannot describe how absolutely perfect Kelly was from the very beginning. She's just the friendliest, most bubbly person. She called me prior to my wedding to go over everything so she knew exactly what I wanted and didn't miss a beat. She looked around prior to the wedding for the best spots to take out pictures. Very responsive and captured every special moment perfectly. So much fun and I'm so in love with the pictures she captured."

"Exceeded my expectations..."

"Kelly was an absolute dream to work with from start to finish! I initially decided to book her because I loved her work but she exceeded my expectations in so many ways! Every step of the way she was responsive, professional, and amiable. I had a ton of questions and requests, but she got back to me promptly every single time. She scoped out the entire resort before we met and found the most amazing spots I didn't even know existed. She is a very experienced photographer and knew exactly what to do to capture amazing photos but happily took into account all the suggestions I made. I am not the easiest person to work with, but she was so accommodating and flexible throughout the entire process. Most importantly, the photos came out absolutely amazing! She did not miss a single moment and captured everything beautifully. I am obsessed with every single photo she took (and she took a lot!) and cannot wait to work with her again on our future trips!"
