who knows all the beautiful miles of life behind the ring on your finger.

Hi.  I'm Karen.

And I am obsessed with family history.

When I close my eyes and watch the highlight reel of my life, I see myself racing into my dad's arms as he comes through the door each night; reciting wedding vows in the twilight of a fall evening; lying on a delivery table and holding my son for the first time. Most of what I remember from these moments comes from a photograph. Because these records don't just celebrate today -                                                                                

             
 


And it would be an honor to ensure your story is told for generations to come. From wedding, to baby to whatever life brings you next,

"Karen Kelly is, simply put, the perfect photographer. Trust me. You don't get to relive your wedding day - after all the wine is drunk and chairs are put away, all you have left are your photographs. If you want wedding photos that take your breath away and let you relive the best day of your life -- hire Karen Kelly. Karen Kelly delivered an all around top notch, first class experience. She was always a step (if not many more) ahead of it all. We completely trusted her and she wow'd us. We can't wait to work with Karen again!!"

"Karen's the one you want on your team on the BIGGEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE."

"We hired Karen to take pictures of all of us on a family vacation (14 of us!) and they are a combination of breathtaking, gorgeous, hilarious, and precious. Karen traveled quite a distance and arranged the entire shoot around what was easiest for us. She not only captured the most tender moments between parents and babies, but priceless moments of my sisters and I laughing, previously non-existent photos of couples and families, and the most perfect picture of my parents that my sisters and I will treasure forever."

"I never thought I'd hire a professional photographer for family photos, but KAREN IS TOO GOOD TO NOT HIRE HER EVERY YEAR."

"I truly believe that photography is not a job for her, but her genuine passion. She will not only provide you with breathtaking pictures of the most amazing days of your life, but will far exceed your expectations. She makes you feel like you've known her for years. Her talent captures the emotion of that day in a creative and authentic way. I couldn't wait to cover my walls with our pictures and we can't wait to have her back for our next life event!"

REMEMBER not to sweat the small stuff."

"Karen came to our home and we knew right away that we were in good hands. We all had a blast and afterward we worked with Karen to create an album with these images. She is warm, easy to work with, and makes each session relaxed and fun. Most importantly, she has a way of capturing heartwarming moments that we will always cherish. Our sessions with Karen fly by, but when she reveals our images, we're floored by how many amazing moments have been documented."

"We were BLOWN AWAY WITH THE IMAGES and have since trusted Karen to document our family twice a year, every year."

"Karen captured every moment we wanted her to capture- the ones that we had planned and the ones we had not planned. What really stands out are the candid shots and how Karen was able to capture the JOY of the day. Karen really focuses on the story, the relationships, and ensuring you have a first rate experience. Karen is helpful, efficient, sweet and makes sure each moment of your day is not only captured, but treasured and remembered."

"We could not be happier to welcome Karen into our home and life to DOCUMENT THE START OF OUR FAMILY."

"Did I mention she's also one of the loveliest people you'll ever meet?! We had the pleasure of meeting Karen thanks to a charity event (because, aside from being super talented, she's also super generous) and have had the pleasure of working with her a few times. As she chronicles our family's history through her beautiful work, we feel honored to have met someone so special! Thank you for everything, Karen!"

"Karen is incredibly thoughtful, TRULY LISTENS TO HER CLIENTS' GOALS, and has an impeccable eye."

"Our images are resplendent with emotion, color, beauty, and captured all the big and little moments of the day. You can see how talented Karen is by looking at her galleries, but what you should appreciate also is the diversity of moments she catches – there are family portraits, the kiss, the dancing, but also the maid-of-honor’s 60 post-it flags keeping order in the day, the little cousin falling asleep when it gets late, the groom making goofy faces, … it’s everything."

"She's a dynamo, FIERCELY DEVOTED TO HER CLIENTS,
and a very inspiring and impressive small business owner."

"Karen was a natural with our three young children who are often quite hesitant around both strangers and cameras. She guided us through product selection for how to hang the photographs on our walls. Given that we had never hung anything like some of her products previously, I was a bit nervous about what we had chosen after the fact, but Karen's instincts were spot on and the quality of the products fantastic! I am thrilled with our choices."

"Karen was sensitive and smart when it came to guiding us through PRINTING OUR PHOTOGRAPHS."

"As I searched for a wedding photographer, most of the options I saw felt pretty generic: the same wedding lingo, stock-photo images, and an overall lack of personality. But from the moment I saw Karen Kelly's website, I knew there was something special about her. From the first time we met her, she exuded warmth, energy, and purpose in her work. Part of how she does this by limiting the number of weddings she does in a year and allowing her to devote herself to brides and grooms, as well as the many families she continues to photograph as they grow. This not only made us feel special, but allowed us to feel like we were really going to be taken care of."

"It never occurred to me that our wedding photographer would STICK AROUND LONGER THAN THE RECEPTION."
