"to love is nothing. to be loved is something. but to love and be loved, that's everything."

Photography has the power to transport us to a time and place in our lives in one image. Through a single photo you can remember exactly how you felt, the smells that surrounded you, the people who are important to you—the moment lives on forever. This is what I strive for when I’m behind the lens: to give you that perfect, memorable image that you can return to again and again.

My goal when photographing weddings is to capture the uniqueness of your event in the most simple and genuine way possible. Nothing overly posed, but instead highlighting the laughter, passion, and embraces just as they are occurring on their own. I don’t date the pictures by doing anything trendy or over the top—just simple, beautiful photos that express your true personalities. I want to capture your wedding just as it is: the candids that express the emotion of your event, the poses that reveal your personalities, the pictures that tell the story of your love.

I love, love, love photographing all types of outdoor weddings such as farms, fields, backyards, mountains, barns and unique locations! As a natural light photographer, these types of venues pair perfectly with my light + airy photography style. My posing style is very natural, limiting the number of staged photographs and instead, highlighting the laughter, passion, embraces-- as they are occurring on their own. In this way, I can focus on creating images that are individual to each couple!

I adore everything about weddings, but what I love the most are the little details and the way you get to express who you are as a couple and incorporate your personalities + interests into your wedding day. I especially swoon over weddings that incorporate vintage touches, neutral tones, lace and beautiful florals!

Most of my weddings take place in Wisconsin, but I’m always up for a new adventure stateside or internationally!

Wedding photography is one of the most important decisions you need to make when it comes to your wedding day. Years from now when you look back and reflect on the beauty of your big day, the dress will be stored away, the cake and the dinner you so carefully planned with be gone, and the guests will have left. What remains is the love you have for each other and the images that tell your beautiful love story. Photography is an investment, but it's the one investment that long endures past the day you say, "I do."

Frequently Asked Questions

1) Where are you located? Do you travel?

I am located in the small town of Neillsville, Wisconsin. I mostly cover Wisconsin and Minnesota, but I can go anywhere my passport will take me. I absolutely love traveling and love the inspiration that comes with photographing in new places.

2) I love your work! How do I reserve you to photograph my wedding?

Once I receive a signed copy of your wedding contract and a $500 non-refundable retainer the date is saved. Please note that email inquiries do not guarantee any client to a particular date. It is not unusual for me to receive three to four inquiries for most dates during wedding season. Therefore, the date remains open until a contract is signed and the retainer is paid.


3) How much time should we set aside on our wedding day for portraits?

I typically like to spend 30 minutes with my bride and groom for the formal portraits. This doesn’t include the time needed for formal portraits of the family and bridal party. If time permits, I always love to take a few photos during the golden hour. I tell all my couples that by blocking out 30 minutes with me, you’ll get both a beautiful collection of photographs and a chance to spend a few moments alone together away from the hustle and bustle of your wedding day.


4) How long does it take to receive my photos?

It takes anywhere between 6-8 weeks to receive your wedding images. I typically post a few sneak peeks within the first few days following the wedding to hold you over until the entire gallery is ready.

5) How do you feel about a first look?

I absolutely love them for many reasons, but the biggest reason is doing a first look gives you more time with your guests!  A wedding day is meant to be a celebration of two souls and two families joining together. There are many family members and friends coming from all over to support you.  By doing a first look and having all of your pictures done before the ceremony, you are free to head to the cocktail hour immediately after the ceremony and spend time catching up with all those guests you haven’t seen in years!

6) Do I have permission to print the photos? Can I use them online?

With all of my weddings and portrait sessions, I release the photographs for personal use after the final payment is made. This allows you to use the images online and print the images at any photo lab of your choice. You may not, however, sell, edit, or advertise the images in any way. I ask that if you post your images online (such as on Facebook or Instagram) that you state clearly, “By Kelly Grace Photography” below or beside the image.

7) What happens if there is an emergency situation and you are unable to photograph my wedding?

In the highly unlikely event that I am unable to photograph your wedding, I will do everything that I can to find a proper replacement. I’m a member of numerous photography organizations and have hundreds of professional photographers that I can contact in case something unforeseen should happen.

8) Should we do an engagement session?

Engagement sessions are my absolute favorite! They give me a chance, as the photographer, to capture the two of you together in a more natural environment. These sessions are the perfect way to get comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding day. You get to see me in action, ask any questions and create an album full of new memories!

9) Do you offer products such as canvas prints, coffee table books, and albums?

Of course! I work with the best vendors in the industry to bring my clients products that show off their beautiful photographs.
