“We absolutely LOVED Kevin and could not have asked for any more!! From the very beginning, his romantic, natural candid style impressed me so much that his sample photos stood out among the 50+ photographer websites I looked through. When we spoke for the first time, even on very short notice, he was super polite, professional, good-natured and very reasonable. He struck us as hard-working and professional, yet someone nice and fun that we would be very comfortable with on our big day. The day of, he exceeded our expectations -he was absolutely wonderful. Nice, calm, fun, blended in, self-sufficient and there for every single moment we wanted captured. Even for the getting ready pictures, he blended right in with my best friends being part of the supportive, calming, and fun environment without adding any stress. After the wedding he kept us posted on his timeline, and sent us the completed products with a lovely note and candy– very like him to add a sweet personal touch. The photos just AMAZED us. His work with the colors, lighting, people’s expressions, his ability to capture all the happiness of the moment in just one shot is just incredible. We had an amazing day and thanks to Kevin, we have the ability to look through beautiful photos and relive each moment all over again. We absolutely recommend him with no reservations.”

“Hiring Kevin Kelley as our wedding photographer was undoubtedly one of the best choices my husband and I made throughout the wedding planning process. Kevin is not only personable, attentive, and likable, but his artistic talent is undeniable. All in all, a true professional! Every interaction with Kevin, from our initial meeting to  the wedding day itself, was a delight! During our first meeting, it was evident that Kevin was organized, knowledgeable, and experienced. He answered all of our questions with ease. The morning of the wedding, Kevin and his second photographer spent hours shooting photos of my bridal party and me before the first-look. They captured many beautiful moments inconspicuously. They made us girls feel comfortable and at ease throughout the entirety of the morning. And, when it came to the first look, ceremony, portraits, and each significant moment during the reception, these were captured perfectly. My husband and I are in love with our photographs and our wedding album. We feel so fortunate to have hired Kevin. We’d make the same decision over again, and recommend him highly and unconditionally to others.”

“I truly cannot say enough good things about Kevin Kelley Photography. Kevin was an absolute joy to work with from our initial interview, throughout our wedding planning process, to the day of the event, and I am so grateful that my husband and I were lucky enough to have him shoot our special day. Beyond being incredibly flexible, patient, and easygoing as we wrestled our wedding concept and schedule into shape (260+ people with a large bridal party in a tiny church and then my in-laws backyard), Kevin completely understood what we were looking for in our wedding photos and helped two very camera-shy individuals feel comfortable in front of the lens. He blended in seamlessly with my family and friends and truly captured the spirit of the day with beautiful portraits and candid shots. I can’t stop looking at the photos and still have guests commenting on both how wonderful he was and how much they love the photos. If you’re getting married in Connecticut or the surrounding area, I highly recommend reaching out to Kevin the second you set your date!”

“We are so lucky to have found and used Kevin Kelley on our wedding day. From the first point of contact, Kevin was extremely responsive and kind.. especially as we were a couple planning our wedding from out of state. Because we did not need an engagement shoot, we met with Kevin when we travelled to CT (very accommodating) and we instantly knew that he was the perfect fit for us. His calm but confident demeanor was something I knew I would want and need on my wedding day. Our wedding photos are absolutely beautiful, don’t look “posed” or forced, and are artistic and captured our day perfectly. Kevin did an amazing job and we would highly recommend him.”

“We hired Kevin Kelley to do both our engagement shoot and our wedding, and I am so glad that we found him! Not only is he an extremely talented photographer, but his photos capture such an element of drama in them that is so well suited for such an important day. Kevin captures light amazingly and he has a way of posing you creatively so that his photos have such a level of interest—but never in a way that is awkward. I was also so impressed by the fact that, although he was the single shooter at our wedding, he was able to so fully catch all the important moments of our day, and not just our reactions, but those of all the people around us. All in all, our photos were all together stunning—sometimes I look them over and I can’t believe that’s really us! We are thrilled! In addition, Kevin really was such a pleasure to work with! He really is so nice, and his interest in making sure that all the joy and magic of your wedding day is beautifully photographed is so genuine. I cannot recommend Kevin enough.”

“Kevin Kelley is the best of the best. His pictures are absolutely stunning, and he is so easy to work with. From the time we first met with him we felt so comfortable and knew immediately we wanted him as our photographer. In addition to our wedding photos, we also did an engagement session with him. It was so cold out the day of our engagement shoot, and he stuck through it with us and somehow managed to get amazing pictures. The weather on our wedding day also wasn’t ideal, and we had to really work around the rain in order to get pictures outside. Kevin was so flexible, calm, and made the entire experience so much easier. Our family, friends, and other guests of the wedding kept commenting how great he was as well. We just received our wedding photos back and we could not be happier!!!”

“We could not have asked for a better wedding photographer. Kevin photographed my sister’s wedding 6 years ago and ever since I saw his work I knew i wanted to hire him when it was my turn to tie the knot. Kevin has this amazing ability to capture not only the mood, but the unique personalities of everyone who was at our wedding -from the bridal party to the friends of friends! He is also amazingly talented at capturing love and emotion in candid and posed photos and we can’t stop looking at them! His photos don’t look staged at all and when i look through them, I remember exactly how I felt at that moment. Kevin also creates beautiful and artistic shots. We have one where we’re holding bride/groom umbrellas and the way he worked the lighting came out beautifully. Our family can’t stop talking about how nice they are! Our engagement photos and wedding album are everything we ever dreamed of and we can’t thank him enough!! I can’t wait to frame them and put them all over my house/office. Thanks Kevin!! :)”

“Seriously could not have been happier with my wedding photo experience with Kevin Kelley! We LOVE our pictures, his professionalism, his communication skills leading up to the event, and his photography style. He listened to our needs, took notes on what we wanted, and did everything we wanted–without blinking an eye! He blended in with the crowd and I couldn’t have imagined a better experience!! Great guy and great value!!!”

“Kevin Kelley was by far our favorite wedding vendor! During every pre-wedding meeting we had with him, he was exceptionally professional, courteous and always concerned with our happiness. We had to re-schedule our engagement session a couple of times due to inclement weather, and Kevin was so responsive and flexible to make sure that we picked the best day to get the best shots. On our wedding day, he was one of the first vendors to arrive and by the end of the day, felt like family. His calm demeanor kept us stress-free the whole day! His photojournalistic style and eye for detail produced the most beautiful wedding mementos my husband and I will cherish through the years!”

“Kevin was absolutely amazing to work with! From the moment we met him, all the way through the best night of our lives. Even now, as we finalize our wedding album, his attention to detail, responsiveness and genuine love for what he does makes working with him a true pleasure. He really goes above and beyond. To give a small example of how he does this: every bag, box or document we received from him with information, photos, USB drives etc. was decorated with our initials hand stamped on them. He truly makes you feel special! While Kevin has done a lot of his work predominantly in CT, he made the extra effort to meet us a couple of hours from home at Mohonk Mountain House in upstate NY for our engagement photo shoot. Kevin had never done photography here but what was amazing was his eye for great photo opportunities. We got along so well with Kevin, that he even stayed for a while afterward to have a drink with us; he felt like a close friend we had known for years. Come the big day, Kevin and his assistant Mike were on top of everything; from getting-ready photos, to the first look, to family photos, the ceremony, the reception, and everything in between. The two of them worked together to make sure they captured everything we wanted and more! We still keep in touch with Kevin to this day and are beyond excited that we will get to see him at another wedding we are attending this July. If you’re looking for someone to photograph your big day, and everything leading up to it, we would highly recommend Kevin!”

“We jumped at the chance to book Kevin for our destination wedding in Ana Maria Island, FL. Even though Florida was a highly competitive market for wedding vendors of all sorts, we chose to import Kevin from Connecticut to photograph our wedding and don’t have an ounce of regret that we did! We were astonished at how he managed to calmly wrangle our relatives through both outdoor and indoor photo shoots, in very difficult light and weather conditions. People often rely on a portfolio to assess a photographer’s ability, but we learned that what really makes all those beautiful shots possible is a seasoned professional with amazing people skills. He scouted unusual locations for our daytime shoot that made it artistic and unique, and captured our sunset beach ceremony perfectly…our wedding photos are STUNNING. I know that there are a lot of options out there, but I am incredibly thankful that my husband and I were lucky enough to find Kevin. We can’t recommend him highly enough, and will be engaging his services for all our important moments from now on!”

“WOW is an understatement. When we first looked at our photo’s Kevin had taken, he well-exceeded our expectations. Kevin is extremely talented and makes every picture so unique to any other. I have seen photo’s of many weddings and must say, Kevin is clearly outstanding and takes pride in his work. What I also loved about Kevin is we never saw him. He captured the best pictures when we didn’t even know it. Our ceremony took place on the beach and they way he captured the sun and clouds was astonishing.”

“Kevin is not only extremely talented, he is wonderful to work with and just an overall pleasant guy to be around. We ended up spending almost as much time with Kevin on our wedding day as we did with one another. My best advice is to choose a photographer who is talented, easy going, calm and keeps the day moving smoothly. I just can’t say enough wonderful things about Kevin. His second photographer for the day was wonderful also, and sense of humor kept my fiance calm and smiling – even when our limo was running very late!!!!”

“My husband and I had the best experience with Kevin Kelley! Choosing Kevin was the best choice we made as far as our whole wedding went. Kevin and his assistant were so professional, and we really enjoyed having him with us on our wedding day. Our guests and bridal party were calling him by name and he knew exactly when to step in and catch just the right shot and also when to stand back and blend in with the crowd. He made us feel comfortable, as if a long time friend was taking our picture. Our pictures came back and they are breathtaking, candid, and have a fairytale feel to them. We can’t say enough about how wonderful and easy Kevin was to work with. We are truly grateful to Kevin for the whole experience.”

“Kevin Kelley is a true professional, and a truly wonderful human being! Is it strange that I am more excited about our photographer than any other vendor for our wedding? He is THAT phenomenal! Our engagement shoot was so much fun- it was never awkward or uncomfortable because Kevin makes everything flow perfectly, and he has the best sense of humor. His photos are absolutely stunning- compare his work to any other photographer and you will instantly recognize the difference. From our first meeting with him it was obvious that he has an incredible attention for detail and that he tailors his work to each individual couple. He is thoughtful, patient and he is a great communicator. He has an amazing eye for location and lighting, and it is so impressive to watch him work. There is no reason to look elsewhere for your photography needs- you will not find this caliber of photographer anywhere else, nor someone this enjoyable to work with!”

“Amazingly easy to work with, fun to have at our celebration, efficient as we could have ever hoped for, and magically found some way of balancing the need to be ever present everywhere in the venue and yet never distracting or detracting from our moments throughout the day. Thank you Kevin (from Nick)

Kevin was one of our favorite wedding vendors (and we had some excellent vendors). He spent SO MUCH time getting to know us, listening to our questions and ideas, and keeping in touch with us throughout the months before the wedding and the day of. He was unbelievably accommodating the day of, trying to get the group shots done quickly and efficiently so we could actually ENJOY our wedding with our guests. Throughout the day, I would catch glimpses of him running around the venue, but he never once was in the way or distracting. I’m not sure how he managed to be everywhere at once to get the photos and yet completely inconspicuous. He was a joy to work with and amazing at what he does. I HIGHLY recommend him. (from Alisha)”

From the moment we met him we felt confident that he would capture our day from beginning to end perfectly. He still managed to exceed every expectation we had. We are more than thrilled to be able to relive our wedding day through each stunning picture, from the portraits to the ceremony to the details to the candids on the dance floor! Kevin, THANK YOU SO MUCH! Brides-to-be, hiring Kevin will be the best decision you’ll make in your wedding planning process!”

“Kevin and his team were a pleasure to work with. We got married out-of-state, and he was very understanding and reasonable about meeting up prior to the event and about travel charges (or lack thereof). We were married in Newport, RI – although if the wedding was in our proposed alternative locations of Boston, or New York, I still would have used KKP! He also suggested a bunch of vendors to work with in the area – including our videography team! All in all, Kevin is a consummate professional, with a great eye, and I would hire him again in an instant. Definitely work with Kevin Kelley Photography if you have the chance”

“We honestly cannot say enough good things about working with Kevin! His genuineness was apparent right from the beginning. He was accommodating around our crazy work schedules for our first meeting, and greeted us with a personalized little gift bag that outlined his photography packages offered. Fast forward to receiving our wedding photos package in the mail, there was a handwritten thank you note from him:) Being someone who appreciates the thoughtful little touches, these gestures only further enhanced my experience in having Kevin as our photographer! His attention to detail is impeccable and he has a true eye for capturing the perfect moment. We could not be happier with how both our engagement and wedding photos turned out. They are absolutely stunning shots and nothing looks forced! Kevin was non-intrusive and blended in with our guests throughout the ceremony & reception which I really feel accounts for how natural and genuine the pictures turned out to be! Thank you for everything Kevin – your professionalism and talent is unmatched and we are thrilled that we got the chance to work with you!!!”

We hired Kevin to do our engagement pictures and wedding pictures and we could not be happier with how they turned out. Kevin was always prompt at our meetings and his attention to detail is amazing. Kevin and his second shooter were able to capture such amazing moments at our wedding without being intrusive and making us feel comfortable. He had no problem working with our other venders and coordinated with them ahead of time. If you are looking for a wedding photographer, Kevin Kelley is the way to go!”

“Kevin was an absolute pleasure to work with! I immediately knew we would book him when we first met him – he was kind, honest, and incredibly professional. My husband and I are not big into taking pictures of ourselves and I don’t necessarily think we are photogenic (we didn’t do an engagement shoot for this reason!), but Kevin managed to make us look great! We really didn’t even know he was there – he wasn’t pushy, and he blended into our wedding. The pictures he captured were a mixed of some staged shots and some candid pictures – both came out better than I could have imagined. As my mom puts it: his pictures tell a story of our day. Kevin is wonderfully talented, and he will not disappoint you. I am so grateful that we have his pictures to remember our wedding.”

“From our initial phone call I knew I was going to love Kevin, but I couldn’t have guessed how much! He was fantastic…communication was seamless and Kevin’s relaxed and positive attitude made everything feel so stress free. He arrived early, smiled and laughed with us the whole time and was nothing but professional. I felt like he made sure he understood my husband and I, what makes our relationship unique and did his best to capture it. Throughout the wedding, he was my favorite photographer – in the midst of everything ensuring every smile, laugh and dance move was captured…no silly poses or cheesy shots…just raw emotion and love. Not booking Kevin will be the biggest mistake you make as a you plan your wedding. Thank you for everything, Kevin!”
