I 100% recommend Kelley for your wedding!
You won't regret having Kelley by your side if you hire her for your special day, trust me! She is a very talented professional, yet she makes you feel like you have been friends for a long time! I seriously thank the Heavens we found and chose Kelley as our wedding photographer because she is amazing! Not only was she super kind and fun to talk to, she also made us feel comfortable and kept us on schedule throughout the day. After she left, everyone in our family kept commenting on how nice she was. She gave great direction, and she captured the most beautiful shots in our location. The day seemed to fly by in a blur of chaos but all of our photos have captured special still moments that make everything appear so peaceful, fun, and magical.

OMG, my husband and I are obsessed with Kelley and her photography!!! For our wedding photos, I was looking for a local photographer who captures moments in a vibrant, candid way, and came across Kelley. We had an initial phone conversation and booked her immediately.
When we first met in-person to chat about our upcoming engagement shoot, it felt like we were hanging out with an old friend. She is SO friendly, professional, fun-loving and talented. On our wedding day, she arrived early (with treats for our dog! So thoughtful) and easily chatted with my parents and bridesmaids, making it feel like she was just a part of the wedding party.
Throughout the family/wedding party photos she was easily able to 'gather the troops' if you will - wrangling the rambunctious groomsmen who were goofing around while remaining lighthearted and professional, making sure all the right combinations of people got photos, etc. When it was time for them to leave we were genuinely sad to say goodbye!

Kelley was hands down the most phenomenal vendor that we had for our wedding. When we decided that we wanted to have Kelley as our Wedding Photographer, she called us and we immediately knew that she was our person! Kelley has a light, friendly aura about her which I instantly gravitated towards.
On my wedding day, she was my sanity through the entire process...she was always calm, collected, and professional. Kelley made me feel confident and comfortable through out the entire wedding. She captured photos of EVERYTHING... I seriously have no idea how she was able to take all of the photos since I felt like she was by my side the entire night.
But what I appreciate the most about Kelley, was that she was able to get everyone's attention for the important photos (family, bridal, and a whole wedding photo) while exuding a calm -yet attention grabbing- manner... at no part of the night I felt like I needed to 'be in charge'; she was able to direct and make everything seem seamless.
My entire wedding party and family could not stop boasting about how wonderful Kelley and her assistant photographers were. Kelley will not only produce beautiful photos, but she will be your biggest cheerleader throughout your wedding night.

I can’t thank Kelley enough for her gorgeous photos, wonderful professionalism, and incredible support. If it sounds like I am gushing - I am!!! I had found Kelley through the Knot and loved her work immediately. I was planning a destination wedding in California while living in Portland, Oregon. I was also putting together a wedding in five months! I needed to be able to rely on my vendors.
From the start, Kelley rescued me from an awful wedding planner and connected me to almost all of my other vendors and a new wedding planner. She literally helped me put together a dream team of vendors that made my wedding day a breeze and a beautiful event!
My husband and I are also the most awkward people and do not feel comfortable in front of the camera. Kelley immediately took care of that and make Ryan and I feel at ease in front of the camera. She is so kind, patient, and fun! I got my engagement photos and wedding photos so fast! There is literally not one photo that I am not in love with. If you choose Kelley to be your photographer it will be the best decision you ever make, well other than marrying the love of your life :)

I can’t imagine a photographer that would have been more perfect than Kelley! From the first time we talked on the phone, I fell in love with her energy! She’s so sweet, professional, and organized. I felt like I could relax knowing that Kelley had every aspect of photography handled!
She even helped me fine tune my wedding timeline and offered amazing advice on whether or not to do a first look! Our wedding day was cold and windy, but Kelley did such an incredible job that you could never tell from the photos! Her editing style is stunning and she had our WHOLE ALBUM ready within two weeks!!!
I’m so so grateful that Kelley captured our wedding and my husband and I truly can’t recommend her enough.

Kelley and I spoke on the phone for the first time for an hour and a half. We spoke about traveling, national parks, and beer. I had an instinct about her and hired her right on the spot (without consulting my husband first!) I later told him I felt like Kelley was a friend who I had know over a long time and who truly and genuinely cared about our wedding.
I trusted her immediately and felt that she would provide us with a positive experience. I was not wrong. Throughout our engagement pictures and wedding, Kelley was focused, patient, and dedicated. She checked in with us to see how we were doing throughout our wedding process and provided support beyond what is expected from a photographer.
I cannot say enough about our photos; we look through them every day and cherish the moments she captured. Our family and friends were grateful and impressed with the images she took. Kelley is an amazing photographer who puts in a lot of energy and effort to make sure you are taken care of, and that the images that she takes are a reflection of you as a couple.
As I look back on our wedding day, she never made us feel forced or unnatural. I am so grateful I found her one random night on Instagram. We continue to follow her on her wedding adventures because we only wish the greatest things for her.

I know it sounds silly, but she is actually the best photographer ever!
Kelley was always on top of everything, right from the beginning. We had a long talk with her about who we were and what we were looking for. We told her we can be a difficult couple to photograph. My husband and I are both scientists, and unfortunately we tend to be quite awkward, especially when trying to be lovey dovey in front of a stranger. But with Kelley we instantly felt comfortable, she has such a bubbly and genuine personality, we were laughing with her like she was an old friend. In addition to her being super easy to open up around and work with, she is INCREDIBLY talented. In the posed shots, she made us look like models, and the candid shots made me cry when looking at them. All of the photos are well balanced and the colors are crisp and timeless. And somehow she managed to get all of these amazing photos back to us in record time, I have heard horror stories of couples not getting their photos back until 6 months after the wedding, but I was shocked to see our full album ready in my inbox just a short while after the wedding. Kelley was 10 out 10 in every aspect of a wedding photographer, I cannot recommend her highly enough.
