Here's the deal. Kelly is very charming but extraordinarily overpriced. At the price you pay her you should not only get what she offers but also some sort of album package. There is not one single photo of my mother and me by ourselves that is candid, and there are only 2 photos of me and my mother at all from my wedding day. This isn't something we can redo. My mom cried when she realized Kelly hadn't taken any photos of us by ourselves. I also feel like the photos I got from family & friend's iPhones were better than the photos she took. (I am a professional photographer myself, so I have the knowledge to say this with confidence.) Her second shooter was amazing and the only ones I proudly present. (I know which ones Kelly took and which ones her second shooter took.) On your wedding day, you are so flustered by everything that is happening that you forget to stand up straight, your photographer should remind you to do that. Kelly failed to remind us to stand up straight, or to even pose us at all in our family "posed" portraits. My mother-in-law is still angry with me because Kelly failed to get a photo with us and her side of the family, which she did with my side of the family and my father-in-law's side of the family. Kelly told me that I would be getting my "preview" exactly one week from our wedding date and our flash drive of our digital photos exactly one month from our wedding date. She failed to deliver on both of those, the preview coming a week and a half after our wedding and the photos coming a month and a half after our wedding. Both times I emailed her asking for the photos and she took much longer than she should have to respond. I had to ask for a specific photo to be sent to me in the color version and waited for a week to receive it through email. All in all I feel that if Kelly's prices were about $1,000 to $1,500 cheaper than they are, they would be worth it. See if you can get the name of her second shooter, she was amazing. Read less

She is an amazing independent photographer! She makes you feel very special on your big day as well as days leading up to it. She keeps in touch with you along the way to make sure you have everything you need. At times she even was able to suggest vendors when I was having trouble narrowing the field from 1000 to 1!:D She is a hard worker and shows her passion through her work. The ease of the pictures mkaes for fun as well as beautiful memories in the end. A big plus is that she gives you printing rights and a digital copy of all of your pictures! Also for a small extra fee she does engagement pics...as well as other sessions (family, etc.). She was great to work with and also helped keep things on time with the other vendors at the reception and wedding ceremony. Overall I was super happy that I went with her...these pictures were amazing and definitely captured the love and happiness of the day! Read less
