Get to know a bit about me.
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 lulled 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, but she gave to me a more fun, exciting, and rewarding career than I could have ever imagined. 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 shooting is simple. Capture the fun, capture the love, capture the happiness. I don’t love the stiff images, where everyone looks straight faced and stoic. To me, those images belong in history books of a hundred years ago. I love imagery that shows how great it is to live now. Right now. And let me tell you, it’s really fun! So if you want to truly capture the happiness of your wedding, your family, your friends, let’s talk about working together. It would be my pleasure.

Kelly was recommended to us for our wedding by several friends. They said, “You pay for the experience of Kelly.” And they were right! I’ve never seen someone organize groups at weddings as well as Kelly does. He is very skilled in keeping everyone entertained while moving through shots quickly and efficiently. He also made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. We can’t get enough of the pictures he sent us, they are PERFECT. After our wedding we couldn’t stop talking about how great Kelly was. He was probably one of our top 5 favorite parts of our wedding (which is saying a lot!). Thank you for the amazing work Kelly! I wish we could give you 10 stars!
I was recommended to Kelly by a friend for our extended family pictures. We are talking the whole fam: Grandpa, Grandma, all my siblings, their kids, my husband and our one year old. It is a rare opportunity we can get everyone together, color coordinated, and take a classy pic worthy to hang up on the wall, so this was an important gathering. Well, Kelly nailed it! Seriously, every single person in the family was raving about how much they enjoyed family pictures this year because of Kelly. He was fun, detail oriented, efficient, and professional. When we got our pictures back we were elated with how well they turned out. I highly recommend Kelly, he is a talented artist who truly has a passion for photography and a gift with people.
My husband and sons actually said they had fun during our family photo session with Kelly! That’s when you know a photographer is doing things right. The results always show, wonderful experience as always.
Kelly is outstanding and captured the moments of our daughters wedding and reception. He works well with everyone and basically takes the stress out of the day by taking care of the photography. The pictures he took are awesome and hard to pick a favorite when they are all great!

I usually dread getting my picture taken. It seems these days that everyone thinks that they are a photographer, and I was so nervous to pick a wedding photographer because it was hard to know how professional the pictures will turn out! With Kelly, not only can you count on photos you will LOVE, but he makes the whole experience a huge highlight of your day! His humor and kindness will make anyone feel comfortable with getting their picture taken. He always made sure my hair was on point and knew how to capture the essence of our relationship in a picture. I cannot recommend him enough!
We use Kelly every year for our family photos. Kelly is great to work with, willing to eat plants to make kids smile and manages to capture beautiful pictures of our family every year. Kelly is the best!

Words cannot express how unbelievably happy I am with my photos. He captured everything so beautifully and I will be forever grateful for Kelly’s work. Kelly is very particular and is very detailed which was one of my favorite things about him. He is energetic and has such a great personality to make you feel comfortable. I am so pleased and and so thankful that I had some one recommend Gallery Photography to me. He is stuck with a forever client now!
Kelly is awesome to work with! He has photographed 2 of my children’s weddings and has done family portraits for us. He is so much fun, talented and does amazing work. The light and the beautiful effects from his artistic touch are amazing. Highly recommend him!!
