Hi, I'm Kelly-- the girl behind the circle. I've been photographing weddings since 2005-- over 100 to date-- and I have loved and learned from every second of it. I'm so honored by all the people who have chosen to include me in one of the most important days of their life.

I'm a native of Philadelphia, a transplant to Vermont, and now happily in Boston. I serve couples all over New England and beyond-- this year I'm going to Orlando, Oregon, and Mexico (to name a few).

When I'm not shooting (or editing) I like to walk my dogs (Boris & Gertie), do yoga, rock climb, knit, and work on my garden.

My clients are some of the most interesting people I know-- creative, unique, fun, ambitious, fierce, brave and totally in love. I create images that let it all shine through.

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Is your media preference film or digital?
I shoot strictly digitally - it's so much more flexible and fun!
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes I do! And I do it in writing.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I never ever shoot more than one wedding in a day, but frequently more than one wedding in a weekend.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes, I have several substitute photographers available-- but this would be an extreme emergency situation.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Always! I have at least 2 of everything I need. Your wedding only happens once, and so I have to be prepared for everything!
Do you charge hourly or full day?
I charge hourly and my timeline is flexible. Because I never shoot more than one wedding in a day I can always stay later or show up earlier. The cost of adding an hour to the contract and the cost of adding an hour on the day of the wedding is exactly the same.
Do you charge for travel?
Beyond an hour outside of Boston, minimal travel fees apply.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Your images are viewable online within 3-4 weeks (and sometimes earlier).
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Proofs are available through a web portal (pictage) and also a short preview slideshow set to music.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Your images are available online for 3 months but can be extended. They're also made available again around the holidays in case of any last-minute gift needs.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
A DVD of all images is included with each package that I create.

Took my money and never delivered- She has not returned my phone calls, emails, certified mail- plus she has no valid business address. Good luck. If that does not convince you look at her Facebook and YELP comments.

Updated Review November 2012
We received our online proofs 3 months after our wedding and did not receive our photo DVDs until 6 months (to the day) after our wedding. It took Kelly several months to edit our photos and return to us our final product and was not responsive during this process. Our photo album came 8 months after our wedding.

I have noticed on her Facebook and on the Yelp! review page that there are several brides having the same issues getting responses from her and are threatening legal action (including a friend of mine). While the photos are beautiful and her prices are reasonable, I would not recommend you go with Kelly just because of the stress that comes along with dealing with her services. She did not cash our final check (worth thousands of dollars) until two or three months after our wedding (and this is only after I asked if she was going to cash it). It looks like she is also offering Groupons or other group deals and those who have bought these deals are unable to schedule their sessions because she is so unresponsive.

Original Review February 2012:
Kelly is fantastic to work with. You can customize your photography package to make it exactly what you want, and her services seem priced very competitively compared to other photographers in the area. We haven't received our wedding photos yet, but our engagement photos are great. Kelly takes wonderful pictures. Highly recommended.

Kelly is fun and flexible. Thus she was a good match for our slightly quirky wedding. We haven't received our proofs yet, so I will update this review once we have.

Kelly rocks! She shot our June wedding and even though it poured the entire day, she managed to somehow make it look like nothing was out of place. Her use of texture in her photos is incredible and we're so pleased with our proofs! Her rates are reasonable and she is more than willing to work with the client to design a package within their needs. I can't say enough good things about Kelly, she was fun to work with and you will not regret hiring her as your wedding photographer!

Kelly was fantastic! We're so happy we found her. If you see her photos, I think you'll love her too. We worked with Kelly first for our engagement photos. It was great to get to know her a bit before the wedding. She was great at capturing the perfect photo and helped us get our best angles. We just saw all our proofs a week ago and our guests have been raving. We were very impressed with some of the photos she got as we didn't even notice her taking pictures most of the day. We were also pleased with her flexibility and photo packages. You should definitely check out the website and consider Closed Circle Photography for your big day! Thanks Kelly!

Kelly is an amazing photographer, and took beautiful shots of our wedding. We are thrilled with the results! As part of a package, we get a DVD with all of the shots, and three albums. Such great quality and price for amazing photos!
