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!
Kevin Kelley is by far the best photographer there is! Not only does he do the most amazing work, he is so humble, kind and incredibly professional. My husband and I loved working with Kevin and his second shooter on the day of our wedding! He is incredibly creative and will take your photos to the next level. We highly recommend Kevin for any event! We are so pleased with his amazing work! Thank you for all of your hard work, Kevin!
Hi Kevin. We received our albums and cannot stop looking through them! What a lovely way to look back on our special day. Thank you for all your help and patience with us throughout this journey - from wedding planning, to the day of, and then figuring out our album layout afterwards. I only have positive thoughts about our experience working together and I hope you are still in town whenever my sister gets married!

Kevin is THE BEST! I cannot say enough about how amazing it was to work with him! He photographed both our engagement and wedding photos and his attention to detail, talent, patience, and flexibility are just a few reasons why he was such an asset to our big day. His photographs are stunning and he is such a pleasure to work with! We would highly recommend him!

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. We can't wait to work with him again on our wedding day and have so much peace of mind that our photos are in his hands! 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!

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 assistant, Mike, 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.
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.
I am a person that has always enjoyed staying behind the camera. I love what I can create. But, I knew the day of my wedding I would have to be in front of it. I also knew that I was going to be particular about the photographer I chose to capture my day. I had met with other photographers, and I have had several bad experiences with them, when they find out that I am a photographer as well. I usually don't even bring it up. But, in talking to Kevin I mentioned it and his response was wonderful. Kevin seemed excited about it. We talked briefly about my experiences and his and went on with the rest of our meeting. When I walked away I knew that it would be Kevin to photograph my big day. That simple exchange along with a long list of other reasons is why I chose him. Kevin did an amazing job and am in love with all the moments he captured. Very professional all day, even with my rowdy bridesmaids and groomsmen. He even stepped in and handed things out when no one else was around to do it. But was completely out of the way at the same time. Kevin fit into our family that day and seamlessly captured what was THE best day of my life so far. I can not say enough amazing things about him. I would recommend him a million times to anyone that would listen. Thank you again.

I first met Kevin as a guest and bridesmaid at two weddings. As a guest, I appreciated that he was unobtrusive and just blended into the festivities. As a bridesmaid, he immediately made me feel at ease with very natural poses and his friendly nature (he is the most easy-going perfectionist I have ever met!). As a bride, I LOVED working with him!! He captured a fantastic balance of posed and candid shots. Highly recommend adding a second shooter too - they work great independently (i.e., prior to the wedding)and also together. Thanks for an unforgettable day, Kevin!

When my husband and I had to plan a short-timeline wedding, we decided that the most important part of our entire budget was the wedding photographer. We were willing to invest what was necessary to ensure that the day was properly documented by the right photographer, and we were extremely picky. I am an artist and can’t stand cheesy or generic event photography: I expected a photographer who would have his or her own artistic vision. We were lucky enough to find Kevin Kelley in our current state, Connecticut, and were extremely impressed! Both the quality of his work and his professionalism put us at ease, and our worry (the one saying that somehow, our wedding pictures would be underwhelming or disappointing) completely evaporated. Then, because of complications with my father’s illness and treatment, we had to change the wedding location AND date, moving to a completely different venue in another state. Once the new location and day were set, we found out that we needed to move the wedding yet again, this time all the way to Florida! Since Kevin was in high demand, I exhaustively researched other options for professional wedding photographers, looking for a viable alternate in case our date ended up conflicting with another booking. I looked at SO MANY photographers. And I started getting worried again. And stressed. There were a lot of good photographers out there, but none of them were quite the same. I was terrified that I would have to settle for someone who was just “ok”…I didn’t want “fine,” “adequate” or anything else of the sort! I wanted the best. I was on the verge of a breakdown, but through an amazing stroke of luck our final date lined up with Kevin’s only available weekend, and we jumped at the chance to book him for our destination wedding. 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! Sincerely, Julia & Pat Murphy
We cannot say enough amazing things about Kevin! He was incredible to work with right from our first scheduled meeting. The pictures he took during our wedding are amazing. He managed to perfectly capture the night, the fun everyone had, and our true personalities through his photography. Phenomenal!
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, very reasonable w our budget, and willing to do extra research into additional sites in the area. 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 (already high) 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 w my best friends being part of the supportive, calming, and fun environment without adding any stress. His ideas for shots ranged from classic, elegant, artistic, romantic, sweet, fun, playful-- all very natural and beautiful. After the wedding he kept us posted on his (very efficient) timeline, and sent us the completed products w a lovely note and candy-- very like him to add a sweet personal touch. The photos just AMAZED us. His work w 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.

We went with Kevin Kelley because of his photography style and personality that fit so well with us as a couple. His calm approach and shooting style made for great moments to be captured without us even knowing he was there! He guided us and our guests through our portraits, keeping things rolling smoothly while making us feel comfortable. We can't stop looking through our photos and can’t wait to make our wedding album!

If I could give Kevin a 10/10, I would. He is professional, responsive, fun and easygoing, and a fantastic photographer. I couldn't be happier with our choice for engagement and wedding photos! He sent our photos in the most creative, beautifully wrapped packages - it felt like we were opening another wedding gift! We definitely plan to stick with Kevin for our family photography in the future. I highly recommend his great work!

We were married back in September 2014 and 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 and his second shooter, Joel Callaway's upbeat personality kept us laughing and 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! We loved his finished product and personality so much, we now use his photographic services for our kitchen remodeling business! Highly recommended without a doubt!!!!!

Kevin's photography and service went above and beyond our expectations! My fiance and I are getting married out of state but wanted a local Connecticut photographer to take our engagement pictures in the Milford area where we got engaged. We were immediately comfortable with Kevin after meeting with him and a few other local photographers. We liked the natural style of his photography and his friendly, casual and professional demeanor. Kevin was extremely flexible and accommodating throughout the process, including day of shoot time changes, location suggestions and photo editing/delivery. I love the way our engagement photos turned out and we've gotten countless positive comments from our family and friends! We had a great time during the shoot with Kevin and would do it all over again just for fun. I definitely recommend Kevin for your engagement and wedding photography. He will go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy the overall experience and are happy with the final product!

WOW is an understatement when we first looked at our photo's Kevin had taken. Kevin well-exceeded our expectations. He 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 didnt even know it. Our ceremony took place on the beach and they way he captured the sun and clouds was astonishing. I am so thankful we chose Kevin. He is the one that has given us beautiful memories to look at for the rest of our life.
As soon as my fiance and I met with Kevin we knew he was the photographer for us. We just clicked, he immediately made us feel comfortable, and he totally got our sense of humor and the type of wedding we shooting to have. He came the morning of the wedding with his assistant, and the whole day I felt like I was hanging out with an old friend. It rained on our wedding day and we still were able to get some amazing pics and make the most out of the rain. He has an eye for a great picture. He is amazing, all of our guests came to us after the wedding asking who the photographer was because he blended in so well with the wedding, was NEVER EVER in the way! but somehow was ALWAYS right on top of an amazing shot! He is awesome and I recommend him to everyone I know that is getting married.. We loved him! Thanks Kevin you are truly the best! and an awesome person.

We were fascinated and intrigued immediately by Kevin Kelley’s documentary photography style. So brilliant to work with, you will not feel like you’re having your picture taken at all. This is exactly what we wanted; Kevin and Joel blended in with the crowd and the cameras went unnoticed. They do their homework; they visited our desired locations prior to the photo shoots and effortlessly positioned us in stunning settings. The shoots went smoothly and flowed beautifully. Kevin Kelley is professional and has completely won our trust. We will absolutely use Kevin Kelley photography in the future; both our engagement and wedding photos are timeless. Friends and family are in awe of our photos. We are grateful to have such unique and artistic photographs to reflect our happiest moments. I highly recommend Kevin Kelley photography!!

We couldn't be happier with the beautiful pictures that Kevin took at our wedding. We had a HUGE bridal party, and Kevin managed all the shots with organization. The ceremony pictures were amazing and he captured all the right moments. He was unobtrusive, but managed to get the most amazing shots when we didn't even notice he was there. We can't thank him enough for his hard work and professionalism. We would highly recommend him!
I thought the photos were exactly what I wanted and not the traditional photos. He was very professional and I would recommend him to everyone. He made the best day of my live even more memorable. The CD was the best thing with our wedding song in the background.

Kevin photographed my wedding about a year and a half ago, and my wife and I couldn't have been happier. He was professional, personable, and very creative, coming up with some amazing shots that will last a lifetime for us. I'd recommend Kevin to anyone who wants top-quality, artistic photographs to capture an event.
Kevin Kelley is an excellent professional photographer with an artistic eye that will capture the true essence of your event. Kevin photographed our wedding and the memories we will forever have are worth a million times the cost of the actual work. Kevin uses the best equipment, is friendly, personable, flexible and comes with a huge recommendation. Absolutely the best in CT!
