After a long search we chose to use Kelly for our wedding because she was very personable and her pictures are just beautiful. We love that she does not over edit them with tacky instagram like filters, but instead has a more modern and glamourous style. She was really easy to work with throughout our planning and gave a lot of great advise to make the pictures go smoothly throughout the day. We would definitely recommend her hands down to anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding.

Kelly is an excellent photographer, and friend. I have followed her work for years, and have seen her grow as a photographer, so when it came time for my wedding I wasn't going to use anyone else. She has a great eye for lighting, and setting up shots. She was willing to work with me on a budget, and even travel 500 miles to do the wedding in 30 degree weather. I would recommend anyone looking for wedding photographer with lots of talent and experience to use Kelly. She is worth every penny!

I hired a photographer for my daughter's first birthday party because I wanted everyone to be able to sit back, relax and enjoy the party without worrying about trying to capture every precious moment on their phones or cameras. Kelly was absolutely perfect and just what I was looking for for this special day. She captured every moment perfectly and was able to capture so many little details that I didn't see!

Kelly Embry Photography is wonderful – I could not have asked for a better photographer experience! Shortly after booking Kelly for our engagement photos, I broke my foot and spent the next 5 months in a walking boot. She was extremely flexible in scheduling (and rescheduling) our session while I was healing. When it came time to send Save the Date announcements to our wedding guests, I still wasn’t up and moving. Kelly generously agreed to split our 3 hour session into a 30 minute shoot to capture an image for the announcements (of us sitting, of course!) and save the remaining 2.5 hours for later in the year when I was able to stand, walk, and move around. I was so impressed by her continued patience and willingness to make the 3 hour session work for all our needs: getting announcements in the mail on time as well as capturing more active and fun shots that we can cherish forever. This alone would make me recommend Kelly again and again, but when I got the images.. Just wow! Kelly captured some of the most candid and beautiful moments between my fiancé and I. The pictures truly reflected “us” – Kelly knew what we wanted and delivered beautifully! She’s also not afraid to try something new, like putting a girl with a broken foot up into a tree :) I cannot say enough positive things about the way Kelly conducts her business and executes her craft. She’s a rare find and I strongly recommend others to use her for engagement and any other photography services – You won’t be disappointed!

Kelly responded quickly to my first call, she met with me on my terms to discuss what my needs/wishes were in shooting the wedding, her sample pictures were beautiful, artistic and captured the essence of what I wanted in our wedding pictures. On the wedding day she was there early to set up and get a feel for the layout/itinerary for the ceremony and reception. I found Kelly to be very professional, experienced, has a good eye for picture composition, she has all the right equipment with back up cameras and batteries, just in case! The final pictures were "amazing" and captured the emotion and beauty of our wedding day!

I chose Kelly Embry Photography for my 2010 Atlanta wedding because I loved the artistic, fashion shots I had seen from her portfolio. She captured this style in my photographs and made my budget wedding look five star. She got great shots during the ceremony while still being inconspicuous and non-intrusive. I'm in love with the pre-wedding "getting ready" photos, and I'm very pleased with my reception pics.

She is extremely open and friendly and willing to accommodate your needs (well beyond what you will find with other photographers). Although she is not as experienced as more established, seasoned photographers, she more than makes up for it by treating your day as if it were as special to her as it is to you---like an old friend sharing in your joy. She took special care and added great touches to my wedding. Her fabulous table cards (that matched by wedding colors) were a tremendous help in directing my family to the photo website later.

I should also note that she took my Bridal Boudoir photos which came out fabulously (hubby loves em).

The cons were that it took time for my photos to arrive, she mistakenly sent a few blurry shots, and she didn't dress up for the wedding...Still all was forgiven when I received a wonderful packet of complimentary prints for my wall and for my thank you cards.

Kelly Embry Photography responded with the following comments:

I am so glad to hear that you loved all of your photographs, I truly enjoyed photographing your wedding. However, I did want to comment on a few things...

Your photos were completed well within my standard time frame, as stated in my contract that you signed (2-4 weeks for the digital proofs/web gallery & 4-8 weeks for the cd/dvd and prints) so I am unclear as to why you feel it took a long time.

As for the blurry images, I am unaware of what images you are speaking of, as you never brought this to my attention over the past year since your event, until now. I am curious as to which images they are though. I do have a tendency to purposefully utilize motion blur, as can be seen in any of my online galleries or print portfolios that I show. I apologize if this caused any confusion as to the overall quality of the images.

Lastly, I dressed in [what I consider to be] standard attire to work your event. I usually dress in business casual attire and comfortable shoes; This decision is based on the physical nature of my work and since I am standing for up to 12 hours at each wedding it would be impractical of me to wear formal dress attire. I did not feel that my dress was at all inappropriate for the informal style of your event (note: i wore gray slacks and a cardigan to this event). I am always willing to adjust my attire based on specific requests from the couple. However, you gave no such request prior to your event for me to "dress up".

I am sorry if any of these thing negatively effected your perception of my services, but am glad to hear that at the end of it all, you loved your photographs!

Kelly is such a sweetie and her work is fabulous. I couldn't imagine having had any other photographer there. She is very easy to work with and was very good at getting us to relax during the posed pictures. Our pictures are absolutely gorgeous, i show them off every chance i get! I would definitely recommend using her to any couple looking for a photographer!

I lovelovelove! my album, it is soooo pretty!
Kelly and her assistant were more than helpful at my wedding and were so easy going that at times i forgot they were around. The pictures were even more beautiful than i could have ever expected. She really treats what she does as an art and it shows in the pictures and in her overall attitude about what she does.
(kelly: i will be recommending you to all my girlfriends!!!)

Kelly was an extremely enjoyable photographer to work with. She was quite relaxed but also maintained a steady pace to keep things moving on schedule. I felt this approach resulted in a stress-free environment where we did not feel rushed. Her concern for our satisfaction was paramount.

I am so impressed with Kelly's quality of work and ability to capture every important moment, even in the chaos of our mostly DIY wedding! She was always available to answer questions I had before the wedding and even gave me good ideas for how to ensure aspects of our wedding could be photographed the best given things like sun light/sunset, etc. On the day of our wedding everything was falling apart and I 100% believe that I (the bride) would have not made it through the day without our photographer. Furthermore, everyone during and after the wedding have commented on how impressed they were with Kelly, even going out of their way to tell us specifically at the reception! All of the phone calls I have received post-wedding for Kelly's contact info from our guests speaks volumes to me. I will continue to use Kelly for all of our photog needs.
