Now Booking for 2024 & 2025



Destination Elopement

Dana and JP came into my life after I shot a friend’s wedding. I didn’t know at the time that there was a girl in the bridal party that was engaged and looking for a wedding photographer. She had no hesitation telling me that, “I want you”. Can I tell you how amazing that feels as a person, let alone a wedding photographer who pours her heart into all that she does? It brought me so much joy to book their wedding and put it on my calendar. Little did we know the year of 2020 would come and we all know how that went over. 2021 let’s make this a better year please! I mean, how could it get any worse really? Anyways, unfortunately Dana and JP found themselves needing to make one of the hardest decisions when it comes to their wedding date. They had to postpone. These two have so much love and a beautiful story, I wasn’t surprised when they told me that they’ve decided to elope. They are from the Hudson Valley but moved down to North Carolina for a job and their continued education. The plan was to come back up to New York and elope. Due to the ever evolving changes we faced this year they ultimately decided traveling to New York wasn’t the best plan. They decided to book the most beautiful AirBnB in Virginia, a perfect natural backdrop for an elopement. When they asked me to come along with them and photograph this, it was such an easy decision. I would do it 1,000 times over again. Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Parker!

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.

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.
