REAL CLIENT REVIEWS:
“Kelly was hands down the best decision we made. She was so professional and genuinely kind. She’s passionate about what she does and that shows through in every image that she takes. She has a way of making you feel comfortable and beautiful while doing a shoot and really takes the time to get to know you and understand what you are looking for. She was so helpful throughout the process and very prompt with responses. The list is never ending when it comes to why you should book Kelly! Her images alone should speak for themselves. My husband and I were so fortunate to have worked with her for our wedding and everything leading up to it! HIGHLY RECOMMEND.” — Rachel and Joe L. (April 2016)
I was lucky enough to have a Kelly photograph an intimate boudoir shoot for a gift for my soon to be husband. I met her and saw her work at a bridal showcase and fell in love! As anyone can imagine, sometimes it can be uncomfortable to find your sexy self and do a shoot with a stranger! But with Kelly it was the opposite! She made me feel so comfortable, so at ease, and so beautiful! She has the best team to do my hair and make up and just made me feel so comfortable from start to end. She would also help explain certain angles of poses, etc! I just got the pictures back today and love love them! She has such a good eye!! They are so classy and tasteful! She is very quick to respond to any questions and is incredibly professional and personable. My sister will be booking with her soon! Can't say enough great things about Kelly and her skills! - Paria (10/1/17)
My guy and I wanted to do something special for our anniversary and decided to have some professional photos taken as a momento. After searching for a photographer for a while, we came across Kelly's site and were blown away. Her photos spoke to me and I knew she would perfect for us. Kelly was easy to reach and so accommodating to our crazy schedule. We had no idea where we wanted to shoot and asked her for some ideas. She threw out a few locations and we loved the idea of an edgy Culver City back drop coupled with some romantic beach photos in Venice Beach. I was nervous as I had never had professional photographs done and didn't know of it would be awkward. As soon as Kelly got out of the car and smiled at us, I was out at ease. She's got a radiant smile and coolness to her that makes you feel immediately comfortable. Once she was behind the camera she asked us to just be "us" which felt odd at first since she was snapping away but then we started to have fun with it and she was right there with us laughing and going with whatever we had in mind. She was great, too, with coaching us to pose in ways that were natural and that she knew would look amazing in print. In fact my favorite picture was one I wasn't sure about at the time - we were seated on these cool grass stairs looking into the camera with a little less smile. The best part was she had brought a beautiful arranged flowers (such a great surprise and awesome prop) for me that I had across my lap. When I saw the picture in our online album I was giddy. We were thrilled with Kelly's patience, humor, and artistic eye and are so great fun for these special photos that we will cherish forever! Thank you, Kelly! - Kristen
