love + Joy

The good stuff.


Hi There!

I've been shooting couples in love for over five years and have loved every minute.

I live for the real, the raw, the life in people. When I'm shooting, I like to have fun and let love and personalities shine.

At your wedding, I will probably cry a few times and gush over you all day. 

I treasure our time together and can't wait to hear your story.

Kellie was a dream to work with. We found her through a friend of a friend for our engagement photos and loved her so much that we flew her in for the wedding. Kellie doesn't require you to have a list of 10,000 shots you want (because let's be real, a bride has so much more to worry about), she has clear and creative instructions for posing, and makes you feel comfortable, like you've been friends for years. She was virtually undetectable through the ceremony and reception and got the most gorgeous candid shots. On top of all of that, we got the photos back within a couple weeks. Other brides I know got married within a month of us and didn't receive their edited photos for four or five months. Kellie made us feel comfortable and on one of the most stressful days of my life, she let us have fun and consistently gave us encouraging feedback. I truly felt like she was so happy for us and not just working to get a check. I could not be more thrilled with how our photos turned put. Seriously, we just had our one year anniversary last week and I'm still posting the pictures on Instagram. If you want to be equally blown away by our wedding shots, go look at her storefront (bride with pink hair, groom with big beard). Overall, Kellie was incredible and if I had to plan my wedding all over again (but like please, God, no), she would be my first vendor decision.

Kellie darling! ... It is such a blessing to have so many stunning photos of our wedding day especially since it was such a chaotic, beautiful blur. I thank God that we found one another because I cannot imagine a better fit for our wedding. You did a wonderful job not only as the photographer but also of being such a positive light in the midst of people surrounding and supporting us that day. You were such a special addition we didn't even know we needed but we did! We truly felt like you were a member of our friends/family! I know our journey does not end here but until we talk again, know we are so very grateful for you and are in awe of our collection of wedding day photos. Much love, Sofia (&Blain)

Kellie was not only an exceptionally talented photographer, but also an exceptional human being. She has a way of weaving herself into your wedding flawlessly. Many of my wedding guests commented that she was not pushy or demanding in taking photos, but instead was joyful and happy, and enhanced our guests experience. We also received SO MANY compliments on the finished product of Kellie's work. Her photos are warm, golden, loving, and full of details from our special day.

Kellie was a blessing from the moment we spoke. She is kind, organized, professional, fun, and I could not have asked for a better photographer for my wedding. I received the photos within a few weeks and they were amazing. She truly captured the essence of our magic day.

Kellie is amazing! She is an excellent communicator (phone, text, or email) and so flexible with what we wanted for the day. We weren't able to meet in person before the wedding but it didn't make a difference as her friendliness and kindness put us at ease as soon as we met. Most importantly, she is a fantastic photographer. She has a skilled eye for lighting and positioning and was able to perfectly capture us and the day in her photos. We HIGHLY recommend Kellie.
