About this Vendor

Inspired by love and drawn to details...

I am a digital + film wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Kentucky, but I travel anywhere! I love adventure, I love to laugh and dance, and I especially love capturing life and happiness in photographs. My love for photography started at a young age and has grown into a career that I am extremely blessed to have. I live for the expressions of the bride and groom as they see each other for the first time, for all the unique details that every wedding has, and for the in-between moments where nothing is planned, but real inspiration happens! I genuinely love to meet and get to know my clients, just as much as I love to take their pictures. I strive to create a fun, relaxed, and a creative experience which will in turn produce photos that will tell your story perfectly!

I am not even sure where to begin...I happened upon Kelli kind of randomly. From our engagement photographer's suggestion as she was going to be out of town for our wedding date. I had gone through a long & sweeping search process & was at my rope's end. I called Kelli one day... Read More last summer & was totally blown away by her instantaneously. It was like talking to an old, familiar friend. We didn't actually meet until my wedding date, but we texted & emailed so regularly & Facetimed twice so I felt like the first time I saw her I was seeing an old friend. She gave me advice throughout the wedding process & had a solid hand in planning & designing our timeline for our special day. Our wedding day was a success largely due to her - her professionalism, friendship, & calming spirit helped keep me grounded. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer to have on our day - she made us all feel comfortable & relaxed. And oh my goodness the pictures that we received. I don't think my husband & I & our friends & family have ever looked better. She didn't stop until she got the perfect shot for each & every moment we wanted captured. On top of that, she was able to capture moments that I thought were private moments between family & friends, & yet she was able to memorialize that forever for us. It's so amazing to go back & look at a picture & say "Oh my gosh! I remember the conversation that I was having!" That's truly a special gift. We are now only 1 day out of being married for one month & Kelli has given us all of our edited pictures (between 600 & 700 pictures no less!) already. I can't believe how quickly she worked & how beautiful the images are. She worked efficiently, but clearly didn't skimp on the beautiful edits. They are positively perfect. I will forever recommend Kelli & Stephen & I will absolutely be using her in the future as we build our lives together. We have found a forever friend in Kelli, as well as a trusted professional that we can trust to capture us in our best light & happiest moments. Kelli, we love you!

I honestly don't have enough GREAT things to say about this photographer. When she photographed our wedding in April, she made everyone feel so comfortable and knew exactly what she was doing. Not to mention, the photos we received back from her were absolutely phenomenal-... Read More breathtaking, really. Even my family members started saying, "She really knows what she's doing, doesn't she? She was great!" She's one of a kind and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. We love her.

Our wedding day would not have been complete without Kelli and her amazing photography skills!

She worked well with all members of our bridal party and family to get the best photos possible, and she ensures you have the proper lighting and angles for the best end result. Her combination of digital and film photography gave us some incredible photos that we will cherish for a lifetime!

From the moment my husband and I Skyped with Kelli to initially get to know her till the last seconds of our wedding day photography, we couldn't have been more pleased!

I found Kelli (rather she found me!) on Instagram, and booking her is definitely the best decision I've made so far while planning my wedding. I changed our location the night before our shoot, and she was more than happy to do whatever would make us happy. She made us feel so... Read More comfortable throughout the entire shoot, and was the friendliest, most cheerful person I've ever met! She is great at giving direction (and has an eye for the greatest light ever), and was willing to let us (and encouraged us!) choose a few poses as well. The photos are absolutely breath taking- they take a little bit to get in because she shoots on film, but oh man is it totally worth that wait. Every single shot she gave us is a total winner. You definitely won't be disappointed with Kelli, shes so wonderful and so incredibly talented!

It's hard to find the words to describe how awesome Kelli was as our photographer. She went above and beyond talking to me and answering questions throughout the whole process.

Speaking of personality- hers is infectious and she quite literally lights up a room. You can count on her as your photographer, but I can also guarantee you'll count her as a friend afterward.

Nothing but GREAT experiences with Kelli. We booked her for our engagement and wedding pictures. Planning a wedding is hard enough as it is. We had looked at many many different photographers before getting on the Knot. Boy, am I glad that we got on here and found Kelli! Once I... Read More looked through some of her pictures I realized she has the style and great pictures we were looking for. I truly feel as if we were led to her. I am normally very awkward around people but Kelli is someone who you can't feel awkward around. She brought many great ideas which turned into MANY great pictures. One of the different things she does that I feel makes her stand out from others is film. She shoots in film and shoots in it very well. She really makes the whole process smooth and works great with you and the WHOLE family. I'm glad she does more than wedding pictures too as i'm sure we will be in contact with her later down the road for Family pictures. 10/10 Would recommend.

Newly engaged and overwhelmed by the task ahead of me, I just happened to stumble across some of Kelli's photography via social media. We had already made a list of photographers we planned to contact and get quotes from but her work was far too beautiful to not add her to the... Read More list. I loved Kelli’s photographs because they were so soft and subtle but so striking at the same time. Kelli was the first and last person I contacted and from our first phone call, I knew she was the one I wanted to document our wedding! We talked first and foremost about who we were, what we did, how Matthew and I met, and everything but pricing and sessions and dates. She was so genuinely interested in getting to know us that I knew she would be sure to capture the emotions of the day in a way that was personal and meaningful. And she did just that. When Kelli arrived the morning of our wedding, she was just the kind of calm we needed and we were instantly more relaxed. She was like a friend there to help get us through the day and she did just that. When your family and guests comment on how lovely your photographer is for weeks after your wedding, you know you’ve picked the right one. And then, when you wake up the morning after your wedding to text messages from your photographer sending you sneak peaks because she is so excited at the beautiful moments she captured, you tell the world she’s the very best!
