Thank you for taking time to to learn more about me and my work!

It is a true honor and absolute pleasure to witness and document such love, joy & beauty as my profession. I am a photographer but I am also an artist & storyteller who adores color, natural light and all things fascinating & beautiful in this world. I consider my images to be fresh, real and a tad whimsical!

It is a privilege to capture your special moments and to create unique pieces of art for you and your family to cherish for years to come. Whether it be your special love story, from your engagement to your wedding day, or candid & playful family portraits, I will put my heart & soul in to creating images that are beautiful and meaningful.

I am based in the Capital Region of NY and mainly photograph in Saratoga Springs, Albany, Troy and the Hudson Valley. I am only an hour from MA, VT, CT & other beautiful locations in New England. I regularly photograph throughout the Northeast and happily travel to any destination world wide.

Some random facts about me - I LOVE to dance! I enjoy traveling to new places both near and far. I find cooking to be relaxing and have become increasingly daring in my culinary experiments (some work out better than others). I adore music of many genres, art, fashion, antique shops, long drives and interior design ( I would definitely be an interior designer if I wasn't so passionate about photography ). My love for all things beautiful in the world can only be surpassed by my love for my family. My absolute favorite thing to do is hang out with my daughter, Viviana, my husband, Sam and our two, funny little dogs.

I love meeting new people and can't wait to hear from you. Let's chat! Contact me now - Phone - 518.859.2882 email- hello{at}keiralemonisphotography.com Read less

Keira did a fantastic job at our wedding in April. She rolled with the punches given some unexpected bad weather and lots of difficulty herding our families to take group shots. We are thrilled with the quality of the photos...she made us look really good! Since it was an off-season wedding, she was willing to help us work with a tight budget and we appreciated her flexibility.

Keira just took our photos for our wedding last weekend, and we couldn't have been happier. From the beginning she was very easy to work with...creating a custom package for us that fit our budget and needs. She showed up right on time (I, however, did not!) and even though we got everything we wanted about 30 minutes earlier, she stayed and continued to take pictures for us. Everything was perfect and I am so excited to see the results!

Keira's photography style is so beautiful. She took amazing engagement and wedding photos for us. She creatively selects locations for photographs that no one else would pick up on that create an interesting setting. And she is very helpful in the direction she gives to those in the photos. Very talented photographer all around.

Keira is tough when she needs to be and completely blends into the crowd when she doesn't. I did not even know she was there during half the reception, which is probably the best thing you can say about your photographer; she also did a great job making sure we had the formal pictures we wanted. Her style is a bit more editorial, and she has all types of price points to fit every bride. I would definitely recommend her services.

I would highly recommend Keira! She did our wedding and engagement photos. The photos are so beautiful - artistic, whimsical, fun and exactly what we wanted! We have received so many compliments on them.
She is very professional and easy to talk to - she always got back to me quickly and answered all of our questions.
Her prices are very reasonable - a lot of wonderful photos for your money.
When I showed our families the set of wedding photos, they could not believe how many there were - during the ceremony and reception, they never even noticed Keira taking photos and were so impressed that she captured everyone.
We love our photos! Thank you Keira!!

Keira was really fantastic. She and her assistant captured so much of the day, and I'm pretty sure they got at least one photo of every single person at my wedding. They disappeared into the woodwork and were totally unobtrusive, and absolutely sailed through the group photos (which are actually some of my favorites!)so that we could get on with the reception and the like. She and her assistant were willing to travel for a very reasonable fee, which was incredibly helpful. I highly recommend Keira as a wedding photographer!

I found out about Keira through I friend who hired her as her wedding photographer. What attracted me to Keira's work was the uniqueness of her wedding photos and the naturalness of her subjects. The personality of the bride and groom definitely come through, and Keira manages to avoid cheesy wedding cliches in her photos. Within days of our wedding, she had posted some photos on her blog that we could share with friends and family. Keira responded to all of my emails within a day. She showed up on time. She was friendly, and I felt completely comfortable the entire time she was photographing. The cost is reasonable in comparison to many other wedding photographers. Working with Keira was a wonderful, stress-free experience, and I absolutely love my photos!!

From the first time we met, Keira was always been professional and up-front, as well as honest, which was refreshing. She was continually patient and answered all of my questions and were prompt in doing so. She has an incredible talent and I am so happy that we were able to work with her. As for the wedding day, Keira moved things along phenomenally and was professional the entire time. Our families even noted that they had no idea how many pictures you had taken because she stayed out of the way. The approach she took and the visions she had were so unique that they helped to make our pictures formal enough to make our parents happy, casual enough that we didn’t feel stuffy, and frankly she helped to make it fun -

Keira was my wedding photographer for my November 09 wedding! She was by far my favorite vendor! She responded to all my emails (there were tons) within an hour. If I had a question she always gave advice on how to make something better. The day of, it didn't even feel like she was there. She is so professional and just the type of vendor you want working for you on something as important as your wedding day. Our wedding pictures are gorgeous and I keep staring at them. For the work she puts into her pictures the cost cannot be beat. Her work is worth a lot more than what she charges! Keira also took my engagement pictures and my boudoir pictures and she did such an amazing job.

Thank you for providing such great service and work for us. We will never forget it.

Keira Lemonis was an awesome photographer. She is very professional, affordable, and artistic. Her photos are very different and creative. She successfully blended into the background of the ceremony and reception, yet was still able to get great shots and many close-ups without being intrusive. She had innovative ideas for shots and captured everything about the day/event. She charges reasonable rates for the same elite photography her competitors offer.

Keira was a pleasure to work with, and her photos came out great! She was very professional, managing her role with grace and style. She was even willing to travel to Northwestern CT for our event.

I would absolutely recommend Keira Lemonis! She was affordable and did an amazing job documenting my wedding. She is very talented and did portrait style photos as well as creative and more natural shots. She documented everything from start to finish! She also scoped out beautiful and interesting spots to photograph my groom and I in. We had many photos of us in several different locations and they are wonderful to have. She was working the entire time she was there and she was professional. I was very happy with her and I feel she understood what I wanted and delivered exactly that. The final results are fantastic! I will cherish the photos forever!
