Hi, I’m Kelly,
and I’m the photographer here at Gallery Photography. I do love my job, but in the tradition of full disclosure, I must tell you I never really set out to become one.
You see, I was happily on my way to becoming a graphic artist when a beautiful girl lured me to the ways of photography. Photography was her love, her passion. She was the creative genius who started a business on a whim and set to work building it. Well, build it she did and gently lured me away from my boring, monotonous studies to become a graphic artist. And I have never looked back.
Sure, my photographic siren has moved on to bigger and better things, namely caring for our three children and a booming jewelry business that uses vintage coins (who knew?), but she gave me an incredibly fun, exciting, and rewarding career. I am forever indebted to that wonderful girl I call my wife and am thankful that I get to spend time sharing in and capturing the happiness in people’s lives.
My philosophy on photography is simple; capture the fun, capture the love, capture the happiness. I don’t love the stiff and boring images where everyone looks straight-faced and stoic. To me, those images belong in history books of a hundred years ago. I love the imagery that shows how great it is to live now. Right now. And let me tell you, it’s great! So if you are looking to truly capture the happiness of your wedding, your family, and your friends, let’s talk about working together. It would be my pleasure.

Kind words from my clients.
Trust me, Kelly is the photographer you want for your wedding! We have had four daughters get married in the SLC area, therefore we’ve worked with lots of great vendors for various aspects of each event. The one who always gets my highest recommendation is Kelly. From the minute you contact him to schedule the date, you will know you’ve made the correct decision.
He is professional and positive and fun right from the start. Kelly has a gift for immediately becoming the friend who puts you at ease because you know he is there for you, and he’s got everything under control.
Along with his great personality, his skills as a photographer cannot be beat. He has an eye for beauty, and his attention to detail is incredible. His ability to capture personality on camera is so impressive. Once you see the final product, each photo will be gorgeous, or silly, or touching, or tender….highlighting exactly the feeling you were hoping for in that moment.
The bottom line is, if Kelly is already booked on your wedding day, change the date. He’s just that good!
Kelly is by far my favorite photographer. Anytime we have a need for pictures, I first, see when he is available then I schedule the pictures.
We have had him for two weddings and he is incredible. He handles crowds easily, and gets every picture we want and more! His pictures are breathtakingly beautiful and he gets them back to you so quickly!
Kelly puts the people in the pictures at ease and has them laughing and enjoying things within minutes, no matter how big or small the group is. I would recommend him to everyone and anyone!
He is and will always be our first choice for a photographer!
Pays so much attention to the little details that make you look great! Collars straight, hair in place, genuine smile, etc. Loved his personality and loved our photos!
How often do you leave your wedding day celebrations feeling like you have made a genuine friend in your photographer?
Kelly is so kind and fun to have at all your events and really has a gift with people and bringing out the best in them.
Our pictures are so beautiful and truly captured this priceless event for our family. Worth every penny and so much more!
Thank you Kelly, your devotion to your profession and to people are to be commended.
Kelly has the best presence. We hire him every year to take our company’s massive group photo and he entertains our employees while he takes the photos. He knows exactly how to handle people who want to do bunny ears or something dumb.
He’s just the best. I will never use anyone else! 🙂
He did a great job with my daughters wedding and, nine months later, our family pictures! I can’t believe he remembered names and information about each person in our family. He made our shoots fun and the pictures really can’t be beat!
LOVE the pics!

Kelly was awesome to work with. He makes it so fun & works so hard for the perfect shot, even if that means laying in the snow on a record cold day.
His attention to detail is amazing.
I would use him again in a heartbeat.
The thing I love most about Kelly is how authentically happy and carefree you feel when he is shooting your photos! He has such a fun, outgoing personality, my husband and I were genuinely laughing in so many of our engagement and wedding photos with him. 🙂
He has done every one of my family members’ weddings and all of my closest friends’ weddings, and everyone has absolutely loved him.
He moves efficiently in big groups and knows how to direct a crowd. He gets a feel for the style you are looking for in your photos and follows through 100%. You will not be disappointed with Kelly’s work!
Kelly was fantastic. We had him do our wedding formals because we were not happy with the photographer who did our engagements.
Our formals were really breathtaking. Kelly is such an expert at posing couples and at making them feel natural and relaxed.
Using Kelly was an excellent decision.
