Getting ready to experience your magical first day as each other's chosen person in front your favorite people.
If you get lost in the planning and the details - don't worry, it will all fall into place and you will be able to fall into each others arms that day and every day afterwards. It will all be worth it. I am so excited for you to drink in these moments and let me capture them for you to relive and retell them for a lifetime to come.
First things first. What details can you tell me about your day? This can happen over the phone as we get closer to the day or the beginning of the phase - OR both.
Will you want getting ready images of the bride and groom?
Will you want a "first look" or a "first touch" before the ceremony?
How many formal family members and bridal party shots will we want to leave time for?
Can we sneak away for 20 minutes of private sunset portraits (there is a different energy to these images and it might be the only quiet time in your day) I highly recommend we don't skip these!
What personal items are you including?
All these questions and more will make sure we leave space in your day for everything you want documented. From the call we will have a Draft Timeline in place. If you are working with a planner or other vendors I am happy to collaborate with them to work out the process of the day. This helps us be adaptable on the day if needed and go in with a clear plan for everyone involved - bridesmaids ready at XX, hide bride away so no guest see her before the ceremony... you get the idea.
A customized proposal will be drawn up based on our hours, any additional sessions (engagement, boudior, etc.) 50% is due at the time of booking, the rest on the day of the wedding. If you need a different payment structure please let me know. You will be able to pay directly through my online platform.
I know that, I am honored if I am selected. Your trust in me to document your day is not taken lightly. I am there with you the whole day, in the most intimate moments. Your ability to feel comfortable is the most important. It will show up in your photographs. There are times when I will be a fly on the wall and times I will step up to direct for a shot. I want you to be comfortable with it all. This is your experience.
If anything you are seeing here is not a perfect fit for you please feel free to discuss it with me. If we are not the best fit I would be happy to recommend other photographers I love that might better align with your needs.
Package options are available upon request and will vary upon coverage needed, location and any additional sessions we have together.
It allows for more variety, perspectives and often less time on your day (they can capture groomsmen, details, etc. while I am documenting something else) I collect and edit all images from my second shooters for one consistent gallery for you. I have a wonderful local team I shoot with frequently you will love.
"We love Kelley!! She is so easy to work with and takes beautiful photos! We recently took our maternity pictures w her and could not have had a better experience. Kelley's approach is relaxed and fun and brings out the best in her subjects. We weren't exactly sure what we wanted but Kelley was flexible and patient, offering great ideas throughout. She obviously loves what she does and it shows in how she works with clients as well as the final product. Best of all, she encouraged us to bring along and include our pup in the pictures which we just loved. Highly recommend Kelley to anyone looking for a photographer to capture those special moments (esp those candids!) and will def use her talents again in the future."
We’ve worked with Kelley for the last three years. We’ve done a variety of photo sessions with her ranging from a maternity boudoir, holiday photos, and most recently, a family maternity photo shoot. Kelley is simply amazing. I have always been uncomfortable in front of the camera. Kelley immediately puts me at ease. She blends serious photography skills with light-hearted candor and our shoots with her always feel relaxed and genuine. We even did a “mini-session” and with just 20 minutes to shoot, there was never any pressure. She knows kids and worked extremely well with our toddler. Our photos are always stunning and there’s no one we’d rather work with. We plan on keeping her for years to come!
We hired Kelley to help us capture the birth of our second daughter. I knew I wanted some modest stills of the entire birthing process but I was also interested in possibly getting a video created, too. We reached out to Kelley after doing a few other photography sessions together. Although she was new to the categories of birth and videography, she offered to do it all!
I received a few pictures instantly & got the entire video and more stills a little over a week later... yes, ONE week later. Every single image I received was perfectly edited & perfectly captured. The work she put in to our video to make it exactly as we dreamed... it just brought me to tears. She is always going to be our go-to photographer!
