I have two great loves in my life (besides my wife, my family, and my 10 pets): fine art photography and weddings.

I graduated with my BFA in Fine Art Photography from the Corcoran College of Art & Design, four months before I married my wife Natalie. I loved wedding planning – from tastings (yum) to hand-binding our guest books to screen printing our invitations.

At the same time, I was deeply invested in my art, focusing particularly on creating a feminist-influenced digital installation.

So how does a feminist, funky, Martha-Stewart loving, crafter and artist combine all this passion? Into a wedding photography company focused on artistic composition, attention to DIY details, and catering to LGBT and allied couples. I bring my passion, drive, service, and artistry to every couple with whom I work.

While I live and work in New Haven, CT- I often find myself in NY, MA, DC and am happy to travel!

If you have any questions or would like to contact me, please email me at: kelly@kellyprizel.com

Honestly cannot recommend Kelly highly enough. She's relaxed, she's professional, she's super accommodating and flexible, and she gets amazing photos. The price of photography is often surprising for people planning weddings, and we felt similarly at first, but throughout the process she kept giving us cause to say, "We're not paying her enough for this". If you are reading this, try to get her, you won't regret it.

Kelly is truly phenomenal -- she covered both our engagement photos and wedding photos for our wedding on April 9. We picked Kelly because none of the couples in her photos looked stiff or overly posed -- everyone looked natural. I can say with confidence that this is 100% due to Kelly's style. She's hilarious and keeps things fun and light after tens (or hundreds) of photographs in a row!

She also showed up with a third shooter at our wedding even though we only expected two and provided coverage from her and her team for over 11 hours! We ended up with fantastic posed and impromptu shots from both our engagement and our wedding photos. We couldn't be more satisfied and would recommend Kelly head and shoulders above any other photo vendor for your wedding.

Kelly is astonishing! She is an old friend of mine, but that doesn't have any bearing on my opinion that she and her photography are simply incredible! Kelly is cheerful, supportive, tireless, creative and highly skilled, and we have the photos to prove it.

As soon as my now-husband and I decided to get married, I knew there was no one other than Kelly I could imagine capturing our day. I showed him Kelly's online galleries and he agreed. The photos from our engagement session were gorgeous (and the session was so much fun -- Kelly was unstoppable, even though it was the crack of dawn and freezing outside). Our engagement photos made us even more excited to have Kelly photograph our wedding.

In the leadup to our wedding, Kelly and her assistant, Meg, made it easy to communicate and plan to make sure we got all the shots we wanted. They also provided helpful advice. On our wedding day, Kelly showed up early (and with her equally awesome wife, Natalie) and was fast, unobtrusive and totally helpful. The portraiture and group shots were done quickly, and Kelly also found me later in the reception to check in and see if there was anything/anyone else we wanted photos with.

Our pictures are gorgeous and we received them so quickly! We've looked at them a million times and are impressed every single time we look at them. Thank you, Kelly, Natalie and Meg!

My beautiful wife Theresa and I are a couple from New Zealand who travelled to New York to Elope in Central Park in September this year. Through reviews like this one we picked our incredible vendor team, so I feel it is so important for me to say that hiring Kelly Prizel as our wedding photographer was the best decision I made second only to marrying my wife. I found Kelly through her website 3 years ago and contacted her and continued to stay in contact over the years so I could 100% confirm that I could have her as our wedding photographer. Her responses were quick, clear and full of information. On the day Kelly was brilliant - she was stealthy, spontaneous and so much fun. Our guests loved her bubbly personality and her calming presence was ideal for us. Kelly is a true artist. She got us into all sorts of places and positions which ultimately paid off - the images are incredible, more incredible than we could have imagined. We are so grateful Kelly took us on board and we would hire her again in a heartbeat!

I found Kelly two years before even being engaged because I ran into a beautiful wedding picture on the internet and it happened to be hers (of course!). I knew since then that if and when I got married, Kelly would be our photographer - even though, yes she was in CT and we were in PA. We loved Kelly from our initial meeting via Skype - she is organized, professional, creative and all around a great person to work with. Kelly has a perfect timeline that explains what happens when and on the day of the wedding she helped us not worry about the actual times and events (she took my phone and watch away :). We simply cannot say enough about what a great experience working with Kelly was. Our multicultural, multiple faiths, bi-lingual, gay wedding was beautifully documented and we will be looking for opportunities/occasions to work with her again soon!

Kelly is a fantastic photographer. She was organized, professional, easy to work with, and delivered a beautiful suite of photographs from our engagement shoot, rehearsal dinner and wedding. Plus, she's a fun, cheerful person who was always a positive and steadying influence during a large and busy wedding! We'd recommend her unreservedly to anyone looking for a wedding photographer in New York City or the tri-state area.

Working with Kelly was an absolute dream. She had tons of new ways of shooting. She thought outside of the box and completely rocked it. She is punctual, courteous, and completely professional. I am so glad she was part of my special day to document it and proud to be a subject of her artwork. I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!

I can't say enough great things about Kelly. First, she's just great to be around: sunny, fun, full of energy. This came in handy because I usually hate having my picture taken, but she made it a blast. Moreover, she's totally professional. She knew exactly how to manage folks at my wedding so they moved where they should be without even knowing they were being moved!

And most important, her photos are fantastic. Absolutely beautiful. Unlike anything I've seen from any other wedding photographer. You can totally tell her background is in fine art photography. I actually asked her to travel to my wedding in PA because her work is so original, and it was totally worth it. She captured the most wonderful images from our wedding. I can't recommend her highly enough.

If I could give Kelly 10 stars, I would. While her pictures speak for themselves, we decided to work with Kelly because she was so energetic, positive, and professional. My now husband is not a fan of having photos taken, but he was having a blast before he knew it, because of her warmth and ability to connect with people and make them feel comfortable.

Lastly, Kelly goes above and beyond what is expected of her, as a photographer. For example, she has shared stories of doing extra sessions with clients who are particularly nervous. In our case, because of a flash issue she was not able to capture an important detail so she later came to our house to take extra photos. I highly recommend her!!
