"She made me feel like the most important person throughout the day."

Kristin + Gary

Kelly was amazing to work with! My pictures turned out phenomenal and she made me feel like the most important person throughout the day. I cannot recommend her enough! 

Since 2008, I've been capturing some of the Midwest's most beautiful celebrations & I would love to do the same for you. The Kelly Grace Experience focuses on incredible photos, of course (my work has been featured in some of the top industry publications)  but even deeper- I focus on relationships. I'll walk alongside you throughout the entire planning process with advice, vendor recommendations, and timeline creation. I'll capture the details of your wedding day in a way that highlights the things that make you unique. And I'll help you to feel 100% comfortable in front of the camera so your photos illustrate who you are together in a relaxed and natural state. 

Wedding coverage begins at $4,500.

Kayci + Tyler

Because your everyday love is worth capturing. Engagement and Anniversary sessions are perfect for documenting the season you're in, celebrating your love story (even when life feels mundane), and building a legacy of photos you can pass down for generations to come. 

Engagement & Anniversary Sessions begin at $550.

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.

how many images will we receive?

Most weddings average 100 photos per hour but it depends entirely on the nature of your celebration!

how much time should we set aside for portraits?

I typically like to spend 30 minutes with my couple, about 45 minutes for wedding party, and 20 minutes for family portraits. I always sneak out the couple at sunset for 10 minutes to grab a few images in the beautiful light!

When will we receive our 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.

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.

DO you offer products such as albums, prints, canvas, etc?

Yes! Your gallery comes with it's very own online shop where you can purchase prints, canvases, framed prints, and much more! Albums are also available and can be purchased directly through me. 

how do you feel about a first look?

I love them for many reason, 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!

Should we do an engagement session?

Highly recommend one! 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. Plus, we get to know each other!

we love your work! how do we book?

I simply require a signed contract and a 33% non-refundable retainer fee to hold the date. The final two payments are due midway through and one month prior to the wedding.
