September at the Garrison

M + M

September 2022

The Garrison, Hudson Valley

These sweet souls who’ve been together for 10 years have finally tied the knot! At a beautiful venue in Hudson Valley, NY, The Garrison, which offers breathtaking views of the mountains and Hudson River. They had their wedding on a Thursday in September, right before Labor Day so their guests had a reason to take an extended long weekend away from work. Smart cookies! Their choice in decor and florals were on point. The wind perfectly blowing Melissa’s dress ever so romantically. The sun set was everything we could have wished for. Congratulations my loves!

After the final touches and some sewing to Mitch’s button on his suit they were ready for their first look.

Just look at how cute they are and were so excited to marry each other!

They shared their private vows together just bride and groom with their photographer and videographer there to capture these special moments.

I had to get a selfie with two of my brides 🙂

Then it was party time!

These sunset photos were…to DIE for!!

The cutest cake cutting…

M + M’s Proposal Story:

We traveled to Colorado to explore Denver and the Rockies in September of 2020. The forecast was warm and sunny – perfect hiking weather.  After 3 days of consistent 90 degree weather, the day of our hike arrived and we woke up to 5 inches of snow! We ran to a local shop and rented snow boots, spikes and poles and made our way to Dream Lake at Rocky Mountain National Park. When we reached the top of the mountain there was a heavy white fog and we were the only ones there. My husband got down on one knee but before he could say anything I started ugly-crying – we both laughed and the rest is history. Five minutes after he proposed the heavy fog completely cleared and we were able to see a gorgeous reflective lake surrounded by snow covered mountains. It was so intimate and so special.

- Melissa & Mitchel

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.
