Tom & Zac // Married

I have tried to start this post three or four times now, and I just cannot seem to come up with the right words to say. There are too many thoughts, memories, emotions that rush through me as I try to type. See, Tom and I go as far back as preschool. Our relationship, like many, as ebbed and flowed throughout the years, but he’s always been near and dear to my heart. Tom has brought so much light, laughter and countless spontaneous adventures into my life, and I know the same for the lives of others around him. He is genuine, thoughtful, generous and kindhearted. Though I’ve only met Zac a handful of times throughout the past few years, I would say the exact same things about him. My eyes filled with tears a few times throughout their beautiful wedding day as my heart swelled with love and respect for these two men. It brought me such great joy to see such a good friend so undeniably happy. Thank you so much for trusting me to document the biggest day in your life together up until this point. May you have many many years of happiness and grand adventures together. xoxo!

Bri & Ty // Stonewall Farms, Willmar, MN Wedding Photography

Their story starts at a wedding. Bri was invited. Ty was a wedding crasher. A few months later, they were both in a wedding for Bri’s friend and Ty’s cousin. As bridesmaid and groomsmen, they walked down the aisle together. Fast forward through months of long distance dating (SD & WI/MN), lots of adventurous dates, and plenty of state park visits (25+ different parks) Bri and Ty decided to walk down another aisle as two individuals and back up the aisle as one; husband and wife. They have a Christ centered relationship and it was truly beautiful to witness and capture the moments when their lives became permanently intertwined.

Stonewall Farms in Willmar, MN is an absolutely gorgeous wedding venue. It was perfect for Bri and Ty’s love of the outdoors. The tall pines above, the bed of needles underfoot with the romantic bistro lights suspended in between made for a super dreamy ceremony location. Guests could easily enjoy the grounds with the horses, yard games and slight breeze with dinner under a large tent before heading to the barn for dancing (a few polka dances per the bride’s family traditions) and s’mores to finish the night off right.

Bri & Ty, I wish you two all the best in your lives together. I know together you guys will do great and wonderful things for this world. Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your story and to capture the love that you share. Congratulations!

Foley Family // Hudson WI Mini Session

With the busy wedding season I had this year, October crept up on me before I was ready for it. I have done mini sessions for the past few years, and just about let them pass this year unintentionally. Thankfully this family reminded me and we met at Weitkamp park in Hudson, WI on a chilly morning to capture some family photos. The two boys are so energetic and full of life and laughter. It was so fun working with all of them and capturing the sweetest smiles against the beautiful fall colors.

Belisle Family // Stillwater Boom Site

There is so much love for this sweet family of four. I have had to opportunity to work with them three times now and have been blessed by them every time. I first met the Belisle family two years ago when their son turned one, then again in this June on the day their daughter was born. Then I got to see them all again four months later to capture some updated family photos. We met at the Boom Site in Stillwater, MN and had a great time wandering the woods along the St. Croix River. It has been a true joy to watch and document this family grow throughout the years.

Brandi & Nathan // River Falls & Hudson, WI Wedding

There is so much to say about this couple and this wedding. Wow! I could talk about how Nathan and Brandi met exactly eleven years to the day before their wedding day. I could mention how they currently live in Omaha but chose to tie the knot in Wisconsin, since they grew up in Minnesota and Wisconsin. And how they picked the ceremony location based on images I had taken years before. I could go on and on about the numerous details and decorations that went into their wedding day that really helped tell the story of who they are as a couple and their journey together up to the wedding day. Everything from the bride’s dress being created by and worn by her grandmother during the Great Depression, and also worn by Brandi’s mother to the fun facts about the couple placed at every table seat. Then we can talk about the perfect weather they had for their photos and outdoor ceremony at Prospect Park in Hudson. Crisp, beautiful fall day with the sun shining as the leaves on the trees were just starting to turn color. Of course, I cannot forget to talk about how awesome their wedding “cake” was! Cheese wheels! How perfect for a Wisconsin wedding and yummy it was served as an appetizer during happy hour. Mostly, I cannot fail to mention that Nathan and Brandi were just smitten with each other all day and are just head over heals for one another. Like I said, I could go on and on telling you the story of their beautiful wedding day, but I hope my photographs tell you more. Congratulations Nathan and Brandi! May your love for life and each other continue for many, many years to come.

Ben & Summer // Bunker Hills Golf Club Wedding

It was a busy Saturday morning at Caribou Coffee when I first met Ben and Summer. Within a few minutes of talking, I knew this couple was one that I wanted to work with and get to know more. They are so genuine and authentic. Summer’s smile and laugh can light up the darkest room and it only takes one look from Ben to get her nose to crinkle and she’s smiling from ear to ear. For cultural traditions, this wonderful couple was officially married during a small intimate ceremony two weeks prior to their reception at Bunker Hill Golf Club in Coon Rapids. Summer’s energy and love was infectious and Ben was a great sport when bird seed was dumped down his pant legs per family traditions.

My wish is for all couples, especially my clients, is to be as happy on their wedding day and each day in their marriage as Summer and Ben were on this day. Many heartfelt congratulations to the lovely couple. It was an honor to get to know the two of you and work with you on such a big day in your lives together.

Zach // New Life Academy Woodbury, MN High School

After being delayed a week due to rain, I had the wonderful privilege of meeting and working with Zach and his mom last week for Zach’s senior portraits. For our session, we walked around downtown Hudson and the river front. We were able to capture some awesome portraits of him since he is a complete natural in front of the camera. It was fun to see his personality come through the further along in the session we got.

Zach is the youngest of his siblings with four older sisters. He currently attends New Life Academy of Woodbury, MN where he is active in music groups playing the electric guitar. He hopes to attend Iowa State next year.

Congrats on your senior year Zach!

Summer & Kyle // Kilkarney Hills Golf Course, River Falls, WI

Summer and Kyle’s wedding colors of bright pinks, yellows and oranges, complimented by grey, was the perfect color pallet for their outdoor wedding on an overcast and misty day. The bright colors brought pops of sunshine throughout the day. Even with a looming threat of rain and storms, the couple was able to have their ceremony outside at the beautiful Kilkarney Hills Golf Course in River Falls, WI. The colors, the tree lined driveway, the perfect little gazebo, the decorative details, topped off with a great couple….wow!! Love. Congratulations Kyle and Summer. Thank you for letting us be apart of your wedding day!

Miller Birth Day // Lakeview Hospital, Stillwater, MN

Hours old and cute as a button. This precious baby girl came a few days earlier than expected, but mom and baby are doing great! I met this beautiful family of four in the newly remodeled birth center at Lakeview Hospital in Stillwater, MN. I had the privileged of capturing the siblings meeting for the first time and let me tell you, it was a beautiful. It’s times like this that can never be recreated. Moments that can steal your heart.

Congratulations Miller family! Thank you for letting me be a small part in such a big day for your family!

Jen & Miah // Lake Superior Beach House Wedding

Ahhh… to be on the shores of Lake Superior in Duluth at Park Point Beach House. Beautiful. Nothing can really compare and it only gets better when celebrating the marriage of two awesome people. Jen and Miah had the perfect, relaxed and casual lakeside wedding a few weeks ago. If all weddings could be as laid back, fun and enjoyable for everyone there. After a short ceremony overlooking the lake, it was a big party where guests mingled, played yard games, kids dug in the sand and wonderful food catered by Duluth Grill was served. These two love to adventure in the great outdoors, hiking, biking, camping, and exploring so the outdoor setting was perfect for them. Miah’s quick quips and remarks led Jen to a contagious laughter and beautiful smile. Can we do it all again please? Get married again next weekend Jen and Miah? K, thanks! It was so much fun, I want to go back already. Congratulations! 01_ParkPointBeachHouseWedding

White Bear Lake, MN // Family Portraits

On occasion I will photograph family portraits, and then wonder why I don’t do it more often because I had so much fun working with Kalia, her husband and her family. Beautiful people, inside and out. We had the perfect summer evening and beautiful locations in Washington Square Park in White Bear Lake.

Mark & Stephanie // Eco-Friendly Wedding at Double R Farms in Osceola, WI

Stephanie is apart of a company called Trades of Hope. The mission of the company is to empower women by teaching them artistic trades and have compassionate entrepreneurs, like Stephanie, sell their fair trade jewelry, home decor and other accessories. This helps women get out of working in sweatshops, be subject to human trafficking, abusive situations and poverty. So it was a no surprise when Stephanie also planned an eco-friendly, fair-trade, local business based wedding in Osceola, WI. Every vendor, from her shoes to her florist, came from a company that supplied local, sustainable or repurposed products and services. (See vendor list below for specifics).

Stephanie and Mark met through mutual friends and since their first date, where they went bowling, they have been adventuring in the great outdoors (including a kayaking trip where Mark proposed) and sharing in life together. Their wedding ceremony was set to be outside overlooking a corn field and pasture at Double R Farms in Osceola, but mother nature had it’s own plans for the day. The wind was fierce all morning and the air stifling hot and humid. At the last minute they moved the ceremony inside the barn, which was a great call for as soon as Stephanie’s dads were walking her down the aisle, a huge clap of thunder sounded and rain came down in sheets. By the end of the ceremony the storm had passed, cooling the air and making way for beautiful clouds and sunset which we took full advantage of for photos.

Congratulations Mark and Stephanie. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to share in your day! Enjoy your photos. :D

Abby & Lucas // Ironwood, MI Summer Wedding

This couple picked the best day to get married in my opinion. June 18th. I may be slightly biased though. Phil and I were married on June 18th five years ago. Best five years of my life so far! We celebrated our marriage by documenting these two lovebirds make lifelong commitments to each other. Abby and Lucas met in 2012 and over the years they were friends, coworkers, significant others and now husband and wife. On their wedding day we were able to photograph in locations that were meaningful to them. We did their first look at the location where Lucas proposed and we stopped by a few places in town where they had their first date and liked to hang out. It was a beautiful day full of love, family and friends. Oh, and does Abby look familiar to anyone? Could be because you’ve seen her three times before on my blog. She is the younger sister to Rachel, Hannah and Naomi. I have had the privilege and honor of photographing all four of these beautiful girls weddings. Congratulations Abby and Lucas!01_RusticBrideGroom

Britta & Kyle // Intimate Backyard Wedding Hudson, WI

He owns a tattoo shop in Eau Claire. She is a physical therapist in the cities. Their paths crossed when a mutual friend introduced them. After Kyle and Britta had been together for a few years they decided on forever. Along with their families and a few of their closest friends, they tied the knot under a tree in their own backyard in Hudson, WI. They planned the perfect casual celebration, including their three dogs, dart art, custom sneakers and delicious food prepared by Britta’s brother-in-law. They are two of the most incredible people you could ever meet. Generous, thoughtful, kind, easy going, genuine and fun loving. Britta and Kyle, we wish you years and years of love and happiness together. Thank you so much for opening your home and life with us. Congratulations!

Andrea & Jonathan // Oak Glen Golf Course Stillwater Wedding

I first met Andrea and Jonathan at a Caribou where we instantly hit it off. We talked as though we were long lost friends finally reunited. They told me the story of how they met, and how Jonathan proposed. We talked in length about their wedding details and found many similar personality traits between Andrea and myself. I hugged her at the end of our meeting as I would a dear friend, even though I has just met her two hours before.

So it was a great joy and privilege to witness Andrea and Jonathan as they wed at the beautiful Oak Glen Golf Course in Stillwater, MN. Between a few rain showers we were able to capture their love for one another and document two beautiful people make a life long commitment. Andrea was radiant all day long. Her smile said all that I’m sure she was feeling inside. She simply beamed. All of Jonathan’s wedding day anxieties melted away the moment he saw his beautiful bride and with much love and admiration he genuinely praised and complimented Andrea all day long.

Thank you Andrea and Jonathan for the opportunity to work with you and your wonderful families and friends. With our hearts full of joy for the two of you, we wish you many years of love and happiness. Congratulations.

Sam & Naomi // Wedding Photography

Naomi’s older sister Hannah, introduced Naomi to Sam at Fort Wilderness Camp in 2013 where they were all working for the summer. Because Sam already knew Hannah and some stories of Hannah’s family,  Naomi recalls the first thing Sam ever said to her was “Hi Naomi! So I hear you like poop.” Now, though I don’t know the context of this, and nor do I think I really want to, it was the start of a beautiful love story between Naomi and Sam. Over the years their relationship evolved and deepened. They dated long distance for awhile before Naomi decided to move to Iowa to be closer to Sam. Their wedding took place on a beautiful spring day, where though it was muddy, the sun was warm and their faces shown bright with love for each other and for the Lord. Congratulations Sam and Naomi!

Laura // Eau Claire Senior Portraits

I am a little behind in posting these images from back in October when I went to Eau Claire to photograph Laura’s senior portraits. She wanted fall colors in her photos, but she did not want to have her brace on from her ACL surgery a month prior. She was a trooper as we ventured to a few different locations throughout Eau Claire to capture to beautiful afternoon light. We ended the session with a few quick soccer shots like we had done with her older sister, Anna’s session. Isn’t Laura just gorgeous? And she can pull of the serious look so well. Natural beauty. I hope you are continuing to recover well and that you have a fantastic senior year Laura. It was a joy working with you!HudsonSeniorPortraits_Laura1HudsonSeniorPortraits_Laura2HudsonSeniorPortraits_Laura3HudsonSeniorPortraits_Laura4HudsonSeniorPortraits_Laura5HudsonSeniorPortraits_Laura6HudsonSeniorPortraits_Laura7


Joe & Amanda // Virginia Wedding Photography

To quote Amanda, “We’ve been friends since flip phones.” We met freshman year in college when we lived on the same floor in the dorms. We became fast friends and went on to being teammates on the swim team and having a lot of crazy great adventures together. After two years I transferred schools and then Amanda moved to a couple different states after graduating. She’s one of those friends that you can talk to once or twice a year and it feels like no time has past, so when she called to tell me she was engaged, I was truly thrilled for her. When she asked me to photograph her wedding I was even more excited. The wedding was in Virginia so Phil and I flew out there for the wedding and took an extra few days and made it a little mini vacation for ourselves as well. We met Joe for the first time on Saturday and could tell instantly that he made Amanda happy and they were a great pair together. Saturday started off rainy but stopped just in time for outdoor portraits. The ceremony and reception were at the Evergreen Country Club in Haymarket which was an ideal setting for a fall wedding. Everything about the day was beautiful. Congratulations to Amanda and her new husband Joe! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and love together.

Jackson // Newborn Photography

I cannot get enough of this cute little family of four with adorable newborn Jackson. This family welcomed me into their home on an overcast drizzly morning just five days after Jackson made his appearance into this world. This family has beautiful hearts, smiles and (nerd alert) window light in their house (I mean, com’on! Not every house has beautiful light that allows for the entire session to look stunning in black and white). Older brother Emmett was so gentle and loving to his little brother. This family is truly precious and it was a blessing to share and document this stage in all of their lives.

Fall Mini Sessions // Birkmose Park Hudson WI

It’s hard to believe, but it’s that time of year again! Fall mini sessions will be offered this year on Saturday October 10, 2015 at Birkmose Park in Hudson, WI. I’ve added 10 extra minutes to the session length from last year and kept the 5 digital images (with print release!) and 10% off prints and products the same. These sessions are a great and easy opportunity to capture images for your holiday cards, to give as gifts during the holiday season or simply to finally get an updated family portrait that you’ve been putting off for a few years now. All families, couples and even high school seniors are welcomed. Sessions will be booked during the morning and late afternoon hours on October 10th. Contact Kelly with morning or afternoon preference to figure out time slots available. Contact me today with any questions or to reserve your spot. Times fill up quickly so don’t delay.

FallMiniSession2015

The $99 (+tax) session fee will be due at the time of the session. Rescheduling due to rain will be figured out on a one to one basis with Kelly.



Logan // Minnehaha Senior Portraits

I first met Logan almost 10 years ago now. His older sister was my neighbor and good friend in the door rooms freshman year of college. At the time he was a young spirited little kid. Now, he is a senior in high school on the varsity football team with aspirations of becoming an engineer some day. Over the years I have had the privilege and honor of photographing Logan’s two older sisters, Shaina and Stacie, so it was such a joy for me to now photograph the youngest sibling in this incredible family.  Have a fantastic senior year Logan and best wishes to your future!

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.
