Well Hello There:}

I'm a wedding photographer located in Durango CO serving Cortez, Pagosa Springs, Bayfield, Ouray, Silverton, Telluride, Farmington NM, Aztec NM, Bloomfield NM, and the whole surrounding 4 corners area.

I love couples who are fun, funky, quirky, and just want to have a laid back, no-stress wedding. I've done enough weddings so I can help you find other vendors, work with you on your time line, and make sure everything is running smoothly.

I would like to meet with you if you are located in the area, or via skype if you are not nearby. If neither of these are possible, we can do phone conversations to get everything set up for you.

Luv from Karen

Karen Skelly Photography was remarkable and she did a fabulous job. She was available for the entire day and did not require additional money for the added time which was a plus for me because she spent the entire day taking pictures. She put everything together for us and if there was something that we did not like she immediately changed it and made it perfect for us. The pictures came out absolutely beautiful and I was more than thrilled by her professionalism and she took a ton of pictures which I was so happy about. I feel that she captured the entire day and it will last for the rest of my life....thank YOU!!

Working with Karen couldn't have been a more pleasant experience! First she tailored a package to fit my needs and most importantly, my budget! She was flexible about other vendors making us run a few hours behind, and patiently waited until we were all ready. She then took some of the most fantastic photos I've ever seen! To be honest, I've never been that photogenic, but she managed to capture some very amazing shots! She created a DVD slideshow to music, and a proof book for us to view to select which photos we wanted. Of course we wanted them all! She is a whiz with options...she offered different photos in color, black and white and also sepia toned. I still get compliments (after a year) of how amazing the photos are, especially the photo taken of me and my bridesmaids...we are all in black and white and the flowers are color...it is so beautiful! So as you can see, I HIGHLY recommend Karen to capture your special day on film!

The pictures turned out great I do wish we could have gotten more but it's was difficult. I also think that with how much you pay for service you should get at least one picture for free

Karen Skelly Photography responded with the following comments:

Kendra mentioned that she should get one picture for free, but they received the entire disc of images with the rights to print. I contacted her after this review and she said Walmart wouldn't print them. I gave her a letter to Walmart allowing her to print. She didn't contact me about this problem before writing the review. I had given her an on-line vendor that would do a better job of printing than Walmart, but she decided to use Walmart anyway. I do wish clients would contact me if there is a problem - I am always happy to find a solution.
