It is my absolute pleasure to give Kelly the highest rating and strongest recommendation for her photography services. I hired Kelly to help coordinate and photograph my son's surprise proposal atop Aspen Mountain. The finished photographs are spectacular, but it is actually Kelly's personality, professionalism and care for people that shine even brighter. I give her my highest endorsement.

Kelly's astoundingly comprehensive approach to her work sets her apart in a league of her own. Not only did she capture our moments of joy with exquisite detail, but she also helped us plan the day from start to finish. Her meticulous attention to detail, coupled with her ability to seamlessly organize and coordinate, alleviated any stress that usually accompanies such a significant day.
If you're seeking a photographer who is everything you could want and more, I wholeheartedly recommend Kelly. Thank you, Kelly, for turning our dreams into tangible memories and helping us immortalize this special day.

Kelly is so easy to work with and the pictures were breathtaking. She got all of the shots I wanted, and she made this day perfect for us! -Mallory M

Kelly creates an environment that allows you to engage authentically, which in turn captures the essence of your world. She has an eye for golden lighting and location. In our various sessions with her she had a quick turnaround with photos, including touch-ups and enhancing the light. Kelly has a gift of not only capturing the moment and light - but doing so in a way that makes you feel relaxed. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a stunning keepsake. Thank you, Kelly!
 -Kara & Markus

Absolutely loved working with Kelly! She was very punctual, responded quickly, was so bubbly and warm and easy to pose in front of, and her work is so beautiful! My fiancé and I went to Aspen for a family reunion and we met Kelly at Maroon Bells. 
She did such a good job and we are so happy with the photos!
