Growing up I always believed I would be a writer. I would tell wonderful stories, show the world what could be through words. I ended up doing it through photographs. Different medium, much more story. To me, you are the story, and there is nothing more powerful than capturing a moment of joy. I adore shooting weddings-- I sometimes feel that your wedding day is more important to me than it is to you. Obviously that’s not the case, but I really care that much. Every detail, every moment.

I was referred to Kesley by a variety of photographers who were already booked on our day, which to me, is the highest compliment of someone's work. My husband and I were happy with our choice: Kelsey's wedding portraits are easily someone of the best we've ever seen. She was able to easily give direction, and pick lighting that translated into pictures we will cherish forever. Kelsey was a very calming presence on our wedding day as well, which made us feel happy and confident about our pick; it's not just about the pictures, but also about how your photographer makes you feel on that day. Hiring Kelsey should be a no brainer for those looking for classic, natural photos you will treasure forever.

I cannot say enough good things about Kelsey! Prior to my wedding day my husband and I did an engagement photo session with Kelsey. For the non-models of the world, the process of getting portraits done can be incredibly awkward but Kelsey made us feel at ease throughout the entire experience and the resulting photos were so much more than I ever expected. From this experience I knew I completely trusted her for my wedding day. In the last couple of months before for the wedding Kelsey was available for any questions I had and always promptly replied. She gave me honest feedback for how to ensure my wedding day and resulting photos would be the best they could be even if it differed from an idea I suggested. I really respected that she didn’t just agree with what I said, but gave me her honest opinion. On my wedding day she was the definition of a professional. She was assertive with wrangling bridal party members whose attention was dwindling and clear with directions to ensure our photos looked the best they could be. The thing I appreciated most was her honestly throughout the entire day and she made me feel that she really was giving her all to ensuring that my husband and I would have amazing photos to lookback on of our day. When we got our photos back they were incredible and so far exceeded my expectations! It was difficult to pick a selection for an album as there were just so many options. All the directions she gave during portraits that at times felt a little awkward translated into beautiful, natural photos; her eye for natural lighting is seriously unbelievable. Not only were our portraits more than I hoped for but Kelsey captured so many candid moments of us and our guests as well as beautiful detail pictures of our flowers, food, signs, signature cocktails, etc. All the little touches took so much planning and effort to pull together and I am so thrilled that I will have photographs to look back on the years to come of these small details. I feel li

There aren’t enough words to proclaim the beauty of Kelsey’s work! My husband and I chose not to do an engagement session and I was not concerned at all in not meeting Kelsey before our wedding. Her portfolio is stunning, she made herself readily available by email or phone, and we got the sense that she would not leave us the least bit uncomfortable or worried about capturing our wedding day. During the phone call we had a week prior to the wedding I had a list ready to go through about what shots I definitely wanted captured and I didn’t even need to mention one, she laid it out before I could! On the day of Kelsey and Clayton were professional, efficient, and so easy to work with. I really appreciated Kelsey’s ability to take charge appropriately, directing our family and friends during the portrait sessions. The photos—my gosh—the light! I love how every photo looks not posed and naturally beautiful, exactly what we wanted. Kelsey is a true artist when finding the best light. Looking at the photos of our wedding day it truly looks like the dream it felt. We are SO happy to have worked with her and are still hearing so many compliments on how beautiful the photos are.

Kelsey is beyond amazing to work with. She has an amazing talent and creates a vision for your wedding day! We received an engagement shoot with our wedding package. It was a lot of fun to do before the big day. It allowed us to get to know her and her style and feel comfortable behind the camera. Kelsey will make sure she gets the shots that you want, but give her her freedom to do what she does best! It was nearly impossible to finalize my photos for my album - there were just soo many great ones! They are full of natural light, great candid moments, and beautiful portraits!

I first came across Kelsey Combe’s work when browsing online in the very early stages of wedding planning and kept her name for when it would be time to pick a photographer. Her photography stood out to me because of its beautiful lighting, natural style, and lack of cheesy posing. Kelsey was an easy choice because I saw that even on the grimmest and rainiest of days she managed to take the most gorgeous shots, and with that I knew that we were in good hands. Luckily, we were blessed with a sunny June day, and Kelsey worked her magic. When we got our wedding photos back, my husband and I smiled, laughed, and cried as we relived the day through her lens. I should also add that in addition to being an amazingly talented photographer, Kelsey was very helpful in assisting me with creating a wedding day timeline and with the getting ready process on the day of the wedding (it’s not every day you need to put on a veil or pin a boutonniere on a tux!). She makes you feel comfortable every step of the way. Kelsey is professional, reliable, and extremely dedicated to her work, and I feel lucky to have had her shoot our wedding.

When we started our search for a photographer, we searched within our area of Upstate, NY. We couldn't find a photographer with the stylistic approach we both loved who was available on our date. A photographer from a friend's wedding sent us a list of names which is how we found Kelsey and Clay, and we couldn't be happier! Kelsey made everything perfect, right down to our drive to the Hudson Valley for our engagement shoot (we thought it would be fun to go there instead of our hometown)! Not only does she take amazing photos, but she also has an ease about her that makes you feel comfortable with being photographed and have fun throughout the process. Our engagement photos were beautiful and we can't wait to see our wedding photos. Kelsey helped us with navigating our day-of schedule to find enough time for our photos since we were more traditional and skipped the first look. The day was the perfect day for photos, overcast and misty. I was happy that Kelsey and Clay were so excited to shoot in the rain with umbrellas while helping me navigate the sand and mud puddles! We would definitely recommend Kelsey to anyone who wants an adventure through wedding photography, gorgeous "airy and light filled" photos, and isn't afraid to walk through the mist and rain to get the perfect photos!

When I first started looking for photographers, I was underwhelmed. Any photographer I liked was well above my budget and was nervous I’d have to settle. I saw photos from my high school friend's wedding on Facebook and loved how natural and beautiful everyone looked and reached out to my friend immediately. She said Kelsey Combe was her FAVORITE VENDOR she worked with and couldn't recommend her enough. Having hired Kelsey for my wedding, I can 100% agree. I booked a “raw” space and had to bring in everything, which means a lot of vendors (I don’t recommend that part). Kelsey was, BY FAR, the best vendor I worked with. In a couple of years, I’m sure she will be charging more, so get her now while you can. Some photographer will be cheaper upfront, but will charge an insane amount for extras like engagement photos and albums. Kelsey’s prices for albums are very fair; she’s not trying to make a killing off of them/you. Kelsey was an absolute dream from day one. I feel so lucky she was available on my wedding date. CALL HER NOW. She books way in advance. Not only are her pictures amazing, but she is extremely professional. She is extremely prompt with communication. I found myself having to repeat myself, and re-confirm details with other vendors. Kelsey kept detailed notes and really listened to what I wanted. I never had to worry about anything. I trusted her completely. I got married on one of the coldest days of the year and was nervous about taking pictures outside. Kelsey and her assistant were organized and worked very quickly to get us inside asap. My entire wedding party was impressed, and grateful, with how fast she worked. She kept me sane. Kelsey has a calming presence, which was helpful the day of when things started to go wrong (with other vendors). I looked at her more like a friend, than a paid vendor. I honestly feel like I can rave about her all day. Everything was perfect. Just book her; you’ll be so happy you did. Thanks Kelsey!!!!!!

If you are still in search of a photographer you should immediately contact Kelsey to see if she is available for your date!
I feel so fortunate to have had Kelsey photograph our wedding! Kelsey was recommended from a friend and after seeing her photos I knew we would be a perfect match. My date was almost taken but fate stepped in and put us together. From the first meeting, which lasted much longer than I'm sure she anticipated, we had an instant connection. Kelsey is very easy to talk to and had great ideas of her own to compliment my vision. I wasn't really into the idea of engagement photos but Kelsey promised it would be fun and really help us all be comfortable together for the day of the wedding. We did them in Central Park last winter on the first big snow and it really was fun! In true Kelsey style, she captured some genuine, playful moments and as always some really beautiful light. As we got closer to the wedding we met back up and discussed the day from start to finish, over more wine. We were getting married in NYC and wanted our first look to be something really special, so I suggested the Brooklyn Bridge. Kelsey was just as excited about the idea as I was. It was more chaotic than I anticipated but she executed it perfectly, which resulted in some of my favorite photos of the day. I really don't think I could have done it without her. The whole day Kelsey and her 2nd shooter (her husband Clay!) were professional, kept the wedding party in line/on time, made us feel so comfortable, and got the most amazing photos of our day! I was completely overwhelmed by the amount of photos to choose from, which arrived on time just as promised. I can't say enough about Kelsey. She was easily my favorite vendor!! She's such a talented photographer and just genuinely a cool person! THANK YOU KELSEY!

Choosing a photographer is one of the most important things you can do for your wedding...after all once it's over all you have are photos and memories! Kelsey was not only professional and talented but she makes you feel so comfortable to work with her that you feel like a friend is taking your photos that day. She is always available to talk through questions or suggestions and you won't be disappointed with the finished product! We just received our finished album back and it was a wonderful collaboration with Kelsey that brought us back to all of the feelings we had at our wedding 5 months ago. I cannot tell you how amazing Kelsey and her husband, Clay, are. If you choose Kelsey you will certainly get an incredible photographer but more likely than not, a great friend!

Kelsey was absolutely fantastic - literally there is not enough I could say about her both as a person and as a professional photographer. I first found Kelsey on stylemepretty and when I checked out her website I was immediately attracted to her style of photography. When we reached out to Kelsey, she responded quickly and with so much love and enthusiasm that I was immediately hooked.
Throughout our entire time of working together, Kelsey never lost that enthusiasm and willingness to help and was always there to answer questions and give advice. We had a great engagement shoot which helped us get comfortable with the camera and made the wedding day photography a breeze!
On the day of the wedding, Kelsey and her second shooter were both fantastic to have by your side. Not only were they very professional and efficient at their job, they also had fun with us and provided good vibes, which made the day feel even more special!
One final thing - I really appreciated the fact that Kelsey delivered the photos based on the timeline that she said she would. Accountability is something I highly value - and on that front Kelsey gets a straight up A.
