Jamie & Stevin // Blue Horse Farm Wedding Photography

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you are all doing well. Today is the first day back at school for most kids around here. How did that happen? What happened to summer? Too. Fast. That’s all I have to say about that. It’s been busy for Kelly K Photo these last few months. I’ve had some really awesome sessions with some really awesome people. I’ll start blogging those sessions soon, but let’s start with a completely awesome wedding. Jamie and Stevin had the most gorgeous day at Blue Horse Farm in New Richmond, WI. Their day was full of people, vendors and details that are a reflection of their interests. We had an opportunity to steal the lovely couple away from their reception for a little bit and capture some absolutely stunning photos during sunset. Phil and I had a blast capturing your wedding day Jamie and Stevin. Congratulations and best wishes in all your future adventures together.

Austad Family

Two big milestones at once! Ailee is now 6 months, sitting up on her own and is full of smiles! Jude turned 3 and this year we photographed him with a few of his favorite things, trucks, his teddy bears and books! How can they be so big already? These little ones are growing up just way too quickly. However, they do continue to get cuter with age so I guess there is nothing wrong with that.  We topped off the session with a quick and beautiful family portrait.

Heirloom Albums

It’s time to re-introduce the beautiful and exquisite Heirloom Album. This is still my top of the line wedding album, I have just renamed it from Keepsake to Heirloom as it truly will be your first family heirloom, lasting for generations to come. I recently designed this album using images from Adam and Audra’s wedding to have as a studio sample and it is simply too beautiful not to share!

DSC_3530-Edit
The cover material is in a pearl spiral pattern giving the album elegance and luxury. When designing your custom album with me there are 30+ other cover options to choose from as well. This album is 15 inches wide (30 inches when opened!) by 10 inches tall. I also offer the album in a 10×10 inch square format.

SpineEdges

The album pages are thick for durability and tasteful style. The edge binding is the best in the world (in my opinion). No matter how often you look through this album, the pages will not start falling apart at the seams.

For this sample, I opted to have one small image in the cover cutout. You can have up to three images with a variety of location options or one large favorite image that takes up the whole front cover. The options are great to help you create the custom album of your dreams that will showcase your wedding and that you will be proud of for life.

All pages lay-flat with no gap in the gutter of the page seams. This provides for an excellent viewing experience as the book lays flat in your lap or to display on a table. There is the additional bonus of having more photo design options and allowing images to flow from one page to the other with very minimal disruptions.

DSC_3569-Edit

For newly married couples, you will pick out 45-60 of your favorite images from your wedding day and I will design the page layouts using your images as inspiration for the layout. You will get a chance to make page revisions and have the final say in approval before the album gets sent to a professional print and assembly company. I try to make the process as easy and effortless as can be for you so that you can sit back and simply enjoy married life. Once approved, the albums take 4-6 weeks for processing and then it is yours for a lifetime for you to share with your friends, family, kids and grandkids someday.

There is nothing to compare the experience of holding this album and looking through the pages for yourself. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions on this album or any other albums that I offer.

Ailee // Newborn Photography

This post is late, since little Ailee is almost 4 months old now, but the images were too cute to not share. If her eyes are closed in any of the photos, they are deceiving, this little beauty did not sleep more than a wink during the entire session, but she wasn’t fussy either, so it turned out well. I will post her 3 month photos soon, so stay tuned!

Adam & Audra // Wedding Photography

Last August I photographed this awesome couple’s engagement which included some epic tandem slalom water skiing. If you missed it, check it out here. Adam and Audra’s plan was to do a little snow skiing on their wedding day, but who knew that in February in Minnesota there would be no snow? Crazy. Even without skiing their wedding day was phenomenal. We started photographing before the sun rose early in the morning at the Hilton Marquette Hotel in Minneapolis followed by the absolutely gorgeous Hennepin Ave United Methodist Church for their ceremony at 10:30am. A brunch reception was held at Como Zoo which was full of fun activities for kids including coloring books, animal masks and a live penguin from the zoo. Audra and Adam had many great and personal details throughout the day but my favorite by far was their cake table (and not for the reason that it featured some of my images from their engagement session). Their cake was custom made by Audra’s sister and made for a great set up for a few of their ring shots. Audra and Adam I wish you many years of grand adventures together. Congratulations.

Tony + Hannah // Wedding Photography

We started the 2015 wedding season off early with an amazing couple – Tony and Hannah. They are full of life, lots of laughter and love. Hannah is the younger sister of Rachel whom we photographed getting married to Tyler back in 2013 (you can view their wedding here.) It was so much fun working with their family again and meeting Tony’s family and friends. Though we were at the same locations we were for Rachel and Tyler’s wedding, we were able to capture images that really reflect Hannah and Tony’s personality and relationship. Finding something new and beautiful in a familiar scene is one of the things I love about being a photographer. It challenges you to see things in a way you haven’t thought to look for before.

Tony and Hannah, thank you so much for letting us be apart of your wedding day. May your love for life and each other bring you joy and happiness in all your days.

Kaiser Family

Happy Friday everyone! Today I’d like you to meet the Kaiser family, my aunt, uncle and cousin. If you know me or my mom, you’ll see the resemblance to Marianne in these pictures. Over Thanksgiving we traveled to Illinois to visit them and my grandma, so we did a little family session one morning. This is also the first shoot I used my new photo baby – the Nikon D810. I’m really happy with the camera, and how these images turned out. Enjoy!

Austad Family // Hudson WI Maternity Photographer

This beautiful family is growing!! Today is actually the due date, but their beautiful, healthy, baby girl decided to come a few days early. I figured I should probably blog their maternity session before the newborn portraits, which I am so excited to be photographing next week! Jeri is beautiful everyday, but I told her she should have lots of kids, because pregnancy looks so good on her, she just glows, and if Jude is any indication, she has really cute kids. She told me that would not be happening, but I still think she should. I cannot wait to meet the fourth member of their family soon. Stay tuned for the newborn pictures. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Belisle Family Portraits // Hudson WI Family Photography

A little over a month ago I met the Belisle family at Willow River State Park and had the perfect fall afternoon with beautiful fall colors. We did a mix of family photos and first birthday pictures. What an adorable family and can the little guy get any more cute?! Seriously? My word. Makes your heart melt. Thanks for letting me capture this milestone in your family, I had a blast working with the three of you!
