There are not words to describe how awesome our pictures turned out! We look like we should be on postcard! I had a destination wedding 3 1/2 hours away and Kellie made the trip (even though she was sick) and did an amazing job! The whole reason we went up north was for the fall colors (we got married in the middle of Oct during the peak color time) but the night before my wedding, it was a blizzard outside. I was pretty devastated because I really wanted outdoor pictures with all of the vibrant fall colors, but with the heavy snow flakes falling, it wasn't looking good to me. Kellie completely eased my fears! She kept reassuring me that no matter what the weather was, we were going outside and would get awesome pictures. And holy moley did we ever! The night before the wedding she sat with me and showed me some of her work from other weddings that had snow or rain and all of the pictures were gorgeous. I don't think she even knew, but she really helped me sleep that night! Even though I woke up to 3 inches of snow the morning of my wedding, because of the talk we had, I knew that she was still going to be able to capture all of the wonderful and amazing moments throughout the day. The weather that day was bizarre! By the time we married, the snow had melted and the sun came out, but it didn't stay out. As we were taking pictures, a snow squall came through, so not only did Kellie capture us in sun with the vibrant colors, she also took pictures of us with snow falling all around as well. Kellie is super creative and talented. I have received so many compliments on my pictures! People keep asking how I will choose which ones to use for my photo album because they are all so gorgeous. What I love most is that they aren’t your typical wedding photos. They have more flare to them! She captured not only the surroundings, but our true emotions throughout the day. I can't thank her enough for giving me such a wonderful lasting memory! Do yourself a favor and book her now!

Kellie is amazing. She is genuine, professional, extremely talented and honest. Her prices are cheap compared to her talent. She should be charging way more in my opinion! She genuinely cares about her clients and does not rip them off like some photographers! There are no hidden fees or small print or tricks she gives you exactly what you are asking for. I have gotten so many compliments on my engagement and wedding photos. She is seriously an amazing photographer and wonderful person

From the moment I first spoke to Kellie on the phone, I knew she was the photographer for me. She was fun, friendly, extremely energetic, and most importantly -- she 'got it' - she saw my vision and was onboard right out of the gate. Weddings are stressful and expensive and the last thing you need is a vendor who makes you feel uneasy or like you're bothering them - and Kellie NEVER made me feel anything but welcome and reassured which I SO appreciated. Kellie is so professional -- I never had to worry about a thing. On the day of the wedding, she was not only my photographer, but an awesome addition to the day's festivities. She was funny, easy-going and made my entire wedding party and family feel comfortable. I worked with a wedding planner and she worked with her seamlessly. Her assistant was awesome as well. My husband lost collar magnets he brought and her assistant was calling around to stores in the area to try and help find what he needed - so appreciated! Ok, all that and we haven't even talked about the PHOTOS! I wanted candid moments captured more than I cared about formal shots and she delivered on both. I actually love my formal family shots more than I thought I would and my candid captures are so great. She really made my vision come to light. She caught all the awesome laughs, cries, glances, hugs, funny dance moves, and every special detail. I can't say enough good things about Kellie - if she is free on your wedding date, snatch her up! Seriously - photography is one place where you need the best and Kellie is the best. Love her! Thank you Kellie!!

Kellie was absolutely AMAZING and our photos are INCREDIBLE!! We are so, so happy with not only our photos but our experience with Kellie. She has a great personality, was flexible, prepared, and a great listener. Kellie made sure to talk to us about what formal pictures we wanted so that nothing was missed. I didn't have a list of other photos I wanted, I trusted Kellie and was not disappointed. Every moment was captured perfectly! Also, I'm (the bride) not always comfortable in front of the camera or don't always know what to do, and Kellie helped me relax and got some raw emotion captured on our wedding day. Our pictures take us back and help us re-live the day, which is exactly what your wedding photos should do. Kellie also brought along a very talented and professional second shooter and appears to be very connected in the industry, so you should not be worried about this at all. We really can't put into words just how happy we are, we made the best decision by hiring Kellie. I should also note that my mom is a photographer and was blown away by the pictures and is so happy. All of our family and friends loved them. Thank you SO much for the beautiful pictures that we will enjoy the rest of our lives :)

Kellie was, without a doubt, the best decision we made for our wedding. I can't express how much of an asset she was during the entire process. As a person, she is funny, kind, complimentary and showed the utmost professionalism. She was always accessible and made time for us. Living out of state, she helped us with other vendors and through her suggestions, we found our officiant and our DJ (who were both outstanding!) She prepared a great document to be completed so the day of was streamlined and organized. She took our wedding day photos as well as our engagement photos. Although we haven't seen the final product for our wedding day, the engagement pictures were AWESOME. Everything looks so good and she made us look like models! So many of her positioning suggestions were so crucial in making us look our best. She gave perfect guidance to ensure we had great pictures. I would highly recommend doing an engagement shoot so you can practice having your picture taken by a pro. It made us much more comfortable on our wedding day having rehearsed with Kellie previously. For our wedding day, she came prepared with great shooting locations downtown. Even though it was pretty cold, she kept us laughing and made it work for us. She had two different second shooters, Rebecca and Shannon, with whom working was great. I can't put into words how much fun we had working with Kellie and how pleased we are with her entire service. Again, booking Kellie was our BEST decision for our wedding!

Kellie is an amazing person who truly loves her job. She took our engagement pictures first, and then our wedding photos too. She was super speedy with both email and phone correspondence- two key factors for busy people.

The day of our wedding went SO smoothly, as Kellie and I made a timeline together and my husband and I were able to get ALL our family photos in. Kellie even got my MIL to smile in photos which is no easy task.

I get nervous both being the center of attention and turn red and white. We were so comfortable after the engagement session- that I had NO issues the day of our wedding at all. If you are unsure, I highly recommend taking engagement pictures first. They are well worth the money- and when else can you rationalize having so many pictures of just the two of you?

To say Kellie is amazing doesn't even cover it. She is skilled with lighting, and always knows the best angles. When working with her you feel as if she's your new best friend. Kellie is always honest, helpful and truly cares about a her clients. We had a small issue where our check got lost in the mail. Kellie went out of her way to make sure WE didn't stress out about it. Who does that? I am SO happy we chose Kellie, she is absolutely the BEST!!!!

I am so so happy with our choice to have Kellie as our photographer! We haven't seen our wedding photos yet as it was just this past weekend but we had our engagement session with her and we were just so pleased with her service on the day of the wedding! Kellie is just such a fun person I knew I would love to have her around all day on our wedding and she is incredibly talented! She knows exactly how to pose people and use lighting to get incredible images and she has the funniest tricks to get people loosened up and laughing for awesome pictures. She worked with our rather tight timeline but did so without making us feel rushed-I just know we are going to have some amazing pictures to see soon! I would highly recommend her to anyone and I am so happy with our choice! Thank you so much Kellie!!

Kellie was a pleasure to work with for our wedding this past weekend. She was very prompt and in great spirits! I had so many people compliment how personable and nice she was to everyone! She handled our crazy family/wedding party with ease :)
She had amazing picture ideas on the fly- and made everyone feel super comfortable.
Our dinner service went a little long, and Kellie stayed longer than she needed to to get some amazing pictures. I am so appreciative, she really went above and beyond :)
