Awosting Falls – Engaged During a Pandemic

I bet planning anything since March 2020 is somewhat to VERY complicated. Am I right?! Especially if you got engaged during the pandemic. It has to be so frustrating navigating what could be, or what should be, when we could plan this, or when we can do that. All the what if’s really put a damper on the exciting feelings of being engaged and getting to plan the special journey to your wedding day.

The weight of the world was weighing down on Regina and Mike, until Regina reached out to me one day. They had gotten engaged in November of 2020 at a getaway vacation with friends. Mike surprised her with family too once he popped the question. How exciting, right!? That magical feeling of saying yes to your love has set sparks to your world, but only to have the realities of a worldwide pandemic do a roundhouse kick right to your gut and knock you flat on your face. FRUSTRATING – to say the least.

When Regina reached out to me, she told me they hadn’t booked a venue yet because of the uncertainty. She wanted to surprise Mike with a session to get them into the celebratory spirit again. Luckily, if you book an engagement session with me before you book your full wedding package, your balance from your engagement session will go towards your deposit for your wedding!

They had booked a mountain weekend getaway in March of 2021 and boy, did we go on an adventure! Their dog Koda came along with her adorable paw pads to protect her from the snow. We brought a pop up tent with us to change into fancy outfits after the trek to the waterfall and BAM, magic happened. This session was so much fun and I’m so glad to have met Regina and Mike. To give them these memories that mean something so special to them is why I love doing what I do.

She is so kind, caring, professional and goes above and beyond. The only thing that “went wrong” on our big day was a button that popped off on my husbands suit and Kelly was right there to save the day and help sew it back on. Kelly was open to the locations I had in mind for our wedding day pictures at our venue, The Garrison, and 100% listened to my wants. She got every shot that I wanted and knew which ones were most important to me. Her edits are gorgeous and timeless and we got our pictures back in a timely manner. I have highly recommended Kelly to other friends who are in the planning process. Book her ASAP!

If you’re still looking for a wedding photographer- stop looking! Kelly is the most amazing human being to work with - ever.

We are FOREVER grateful we found Kelly Jean and have all these stunning memories to hold onto for life. Her unique, artistic approach and attention to detail truly shines through every photo. We haven’t been able to stop looking through our gallery and reliving every special part of our day!

Even under a constant cloud of rain, Kelly Jean captured our day better than I could have imagined.

- Taylor + Blake

From DAY ONE of working with Kelly, she removed so much stress and truly CARED about our big day. Her work speaks for herself but her personality, organization and actions are what makes her the best possible option for your big day. Kelly truly goes above and beyond to make not only the physical pictures everything you could have ever dreamed of but makes the entire experience that much better.

Book Kelly as your photographer and you will not regret it one bit.

I don’t even know where to start when it comes to Kelly but I know one thing- if you want to have the best wedding and day ever, book Kelly.
