Kelly is simply the best at what she does. Despite planning our wedding from 800 miles away Kelly was incredibly engaging, responsive, and excited to work with us. Kelly is very professional in her approach - she's not a weekend photographer, she's a professional and expert at what she does. Her work obviously speaks for itself, but what impressed us the most was how she worked with us. Prior to the wedding she spent time ensuring that our day of plan would work for the best photos. She always listened, never pushed, and gave fantastic perspective on what we could do to ensure we had the aesthetic we were looking for. Her day of performance was incredible! She worked well with our family, friends and the bridal party. Her assistant was also extremely professional. She didn't get in the way at the ceremony and took a substantial amount of care in all she did to ensure we had a perfect day. Between her talent, professionalism, and kindness, we had the ideal experience. It's important to know that Kelly is creative - she pushes the limits of what has been done and gives you a unique perspective. Don't be stupid. Hire Kelly.

Kelly Sweet is an exceptional photographer. We chose her for my daughter's wedding because she is artistic and knows what she is doing both in and out of doors. She and her partner were very professional. They stuck to their timeline and the digital images we have seen so far are BEAUTIFUL. We can't wait to see the rest. She is pricey, but worth every penny.

Photography was high on our priority list. We wanted a photographer who could capture the emotions and story of our wedding day, so we were willing to pay a bit extra for quality. We have NO regrets after choosing Kelly Sweet. She is so nice, and she had great, innovative ideas for our wedding photos. It's obvious that she has been well-trained and educated in photography. The compliments are still rolling in from our wedding photos!

Professional wedding photography was a big expense and commitment for us. I was a bit nervous, because I'd heard horror stories from friends about photographers who didn't work out well or who still hadn't provided photos more than a year after the wedding.

We were so lucky to find Kelly Sweet. Professionally, and personally, she was the ideal choice for our wedding. She adapted quickly to a sort of do-it-yourself, crazy schedule we'd put together. She appreciated our style and took pictures that really captured the spirit of the event. She was easy to work with and gave us great suggestions during the planning process. And she had a great sense of fun, which added to our enjoyment of our engagement photo session and our wedding.

Our friends and family can't stop talking about how fantastic the pictures are.

I can not say enough about Kelly and the amazing work she does, she absolutely exceeded my expectations. From our first meeting I respected her work and knew I had to have her photograph our wedding. I could tell immediately that quality equipment is very important to her get good results; she sets a high standard to achieve the best quality.
She really listens to your your desires and incorporates her own creative artistic edge to achieve the most amazing images. We both truly loved having her photograph us! I loved her direction and vision of placement, poses, how to stand, where to look, ect. She made me look better that I ever thought I could. Edgey and beautiful at the same time. I was shocked with the variety of shots. I can not believe how many totally different shots I have, it's awesome. Some photographers may give you a lot of photos but the end up all looking the same...not with Kelly! You will not get the standard typical photographs. Everything is original and unique to you and your day/wedding.
I felt like it was hard for me to verbalize what "look" I was after and frankly I'm not creative enough to do so, but I feel like she has such a great intuition on feeling out your style and plays on that to make the photos portray "you" more than you imagined.
I ended up going back after the wedding to do a trash the dress session, and I highly recommend it!! just do it! This is my philosophy, you can spend $500 to get your dress dry cleaned and preserved and maybe try to squeeze into it in 10-20 years down the road just to see if it still fits. OR, you can spend half that and gets a ton of really awesome pictures of you in it while your still young and hot, and be able to look at them daily and have them forever. My dress is a bit trashed now, but I would do it again, totally worth it!!
I also went back to her for the thank you cards. You could maybe get them cheaper some where else but I really trust her and I knew they would be great quality. And they were!! They turned out awesome. She is very fast and easy to communicate with; always responds quickly.
Well I could go on and on, but I wont.
Just trust me, She is the best and worth every penny...because I know every bride is on a budget, but dot skimp with your photos, you will regret it. I seriously think I have looked at my picture every day since our wedding so you need to love them!!!!

Kelly and her assistant were absolutely amazing to work with. So far we've seen a sampling of our photos on her blog and we're anxiously awaiting the rest of them. Her work it gorgeous. We did not want the traditional posed photos - we wanted someone creative and modern and she delivered. This was a great investment in our day - beautiful memories to last forever.
