And I would love to be your photo editor
When I first started photographing weddings 12 years ago, I never would have imagined that one day I would be editing weddings for a group of amazing photographers from all over the country. But since putting down my camera and pivoting full time from wedding photographer to photo editor, I couldn't be happier in this new role!
While I loved being a photographer, I found photo editing to be my strength and favorite part of the job. I could spend hours sitting at my computer looking at beautiful photos and it never got old. Through my experience as a wedding photographer and as a private editor for other photographers, I have edited a lot of weddings over the years and as a result, have developed systems for quick turnaround time and consistent color correction.
I took my first photography class when I was 16 and from that very first moment I stepped into a darkroom and saw my photo develop, I was hooked! In college, I studied photojournalism, graphic design and art. Photography has been a part of my life ever since and I truly couldn’t image working in any other field. I see color and light everywhere whether I’m watching a movie or on a hike with my family. Through many different roles, one thing that has never changed is my love for beautiful images.
I live in South Carolina with my husband and two wonderful and “full of spunk” children – Bryce and Lily. We love to travel and spending our free time together outdoors exploring.
Kelly has been the absolute best investment in my business. Because of her, I have been able to take on more sessions and weddings which in turn has doubled my income. Not only that, but I’m able to provide my clients with a fast turn around that they love. Kelly is fast, dependable, an excellent communicator, and I am so thankful she is part of my team!
I instantly felt a huge sigh of relief as soon as I sent my first wedding gallery to Kelly! Kelly has worked hard to know my style. Her turnaround time is unbelievable, especially for the level of quality of her work. Every single time I get a wedding gallery back, I want to cry, because I have regained my peace of mind. A huge burden has been lifted off of my shoulders! I have my life back!
Hiring Kelly has been monumental for my business AND personal life. Not only have I been able to serve more clients, which brings in more income, but am also able to spend more time with my family.
It took her ONE wedding to nail down my style. And she probably does it better than me! Her turn around times are phenomenal and every time I have had an "emergency" editing issue, she comes to the rescue. It brings such peace knowing that my work couldn't be in better hands.
One of my favorite things is seeing on social media that Kelly is out on a family day, but yet she still gets things back before their due date. She manages her time so well. And while I know I am not her only client, I certainly feel like it with how personable and hardworking she is.
It truly is the best feeling knowing she has her best interest for my business, clients and most importantly my personal and family life.
Kelly is very professional and has great follow-up. She has a proven system that helps her learn and mirror your retouching style, and deliver your final images in a timely manner. She immediately nailed it on our first project together. What would normally take me weeks to complete, Kelly knocks out within a few days. Working with Kelly has given me more time to focus on growing my business and connecting with new customers. I wish I would have found her years ago!
I reached out to Kelly several years ago when I had an unusually overbooked year. On top of that we were building a house, I had just had a baby, and I had two other toddlers at home! Needless to say, I was looking to outsource something and this seemed to be the only thing that made sense. I was nervous to hand over my editing to someone else, but I really had no choice if I was going to survive the year and deliver my photos in a timely manner to my clients.
Kelly made the transition so easy, and took all of my worries away. The initial set-up was simple, and she does such a fantastic job at duplicating my editing style. Since then, I have had so much more time to devote to my family instead of sitting behind my computer editing. It really is the best business decision I have made to date and I still use her to this day. I have recommended her to several friends because she does such a great job and makes the whole process so simple and easy!
