I'm a wedding, senior and family photographer based in Sussex, Wisconsin. I graduated from Carroll College in Waukesha with a Bachelor’s degree in Photography. At that age I had no idea how I could use my passion and education to make a living. I was doing website design and marketing and was able to make a career out of that. My passion for photography never went away and I needed a way to be able to use my creativity. I started setting up backdrops in my kitchen and shooting photos of kids and families that I knew. That eventually grew into a family friend asking me if I would try wedding photography. I gave it a try back in 2008 and fell in love with it. I have now shot over 100 weddings in every location from on a boat on Lake Geneva to a backyard in Delafield. Every one of those weddings are unique and I am honored to have been a part of each and every one of them.
I’ve been around Canon cameras my entire life. My grandfather had a passion for photos and I would consider him a photographer even though it wasn't his profession. My dad also always had a camera around his neck for important events. I was always very intrigued but never really found my love for it until after high school. I learned how to shoot on film cameras (am I dating myself??!) and spent my college years in a dark room. When I graduated from college my parents bought me my first digtial camera and I was even more in love.. The digital world opened so many new doors. I also have a passion for digital art and was finally able to easily mix those two passions. My love of photography grows more every year and I don't see that changing anytime soon!
I am probably more excited about your photos than you are!
I'm traveling to Europe this summer. Oh the photos I can't wait to capture!!
I have a husband and two teenage daughters. My oldest will be going off to college in fall.
I have a dog, two cats and 5 chickens. I guess I like animals! :)
I love the color purple and the tv show "FRIENDS".
Kelly was absolutely amazing! She was extremely easy to work with through the whole process and our pictures turned out fantastic! She really did a great job of capturing our day and we got the pictures back so quickly! I’m thrilled with the way that everything turned out.

I loved working with Kelly. She is responds back very quickly to emails/ phone calls. All of my photos were gorgeous; she did a great job directing us for shots. She was on time to each site, even with 2 of them not being easy to find. I would highly recommend her for any event!
"It has been so nice working with you. We truly love our engagement photos so I have no doubt our wedding photos will be amazing! Thank you!"

Working with Kelly was so easy! Quite a few things on our wedding day didn't go according to plan (rain up until and immediately after our outdoor ceremony, no working music, rowdy kids, scattered photo subjects to name a few), but Kelly just worked through it. As a bride, that helped me just go with whatever happened and enjoy the moments as they came. Kelly moved smoothly through the ceremony and reception, always there but never in the way. It was such a great experience working with her and we will definitely use her services again and again.
