Hi lovelies, I'm Kelli! I'm a southern girl, wife to Tyler, mom to the cutest Great Dane named Bo, and a big fan of dark chocolate! If you meet me, you'll learn quickly I'm a huge of fan hugs, I love to talk and get to know you, and I snort when I laugh. When I'm not photographing special moments, you'll find me traveling, reading or snuggling Bo.
While I have loved photography from a young age, I never dreamed that my passion would become a career. I still wake up in awe that I get to document love for a living. My goal as a photographer is to capture genuine moments and to tell a story. Your story. Making a true connection with my couples is so important to me as well, because I want to serve you the best I can!
After college, I pursued different things, all while continuing to take photos. Eventually, I realized that my dream that I thought would never happen, was happening! I decided to go full time with my business the same month I got married and I haven't looked back since! Now, after having shot 100 weddings, my love for documenting other's love has only grown!
Today, I am married to Tyler and we are raising our goofy, wanna-be lap dog, Bo! We live in the South-East, but travel all over for weddings and for adventures!
When I was a little girl, I was given a Barbie film camera. It was pink and it had Barbie on it and well, it was everything! I remember taking that thing everywhere and taking photos of whatever I could. I would get so anxious to take the film to the store and wait a week to get my prints back. As I grew, I got my first "grown up" film camera, and then by my senior year of high school, I was my senior class historian shooting with my first ever digital camera (it was epic). Through college, I kept my camera by my side and took photos of anything and everything, but I never thought it would become my profession....
"Our wedding day would not have been complete without Kelli and her amazing photography skills! From the moment we met her at our engagement session I knew i had made the right choice in a photographer. Not only does she produce amazingly beautiful images - she is so sweet, kind, encouraging, and fun to be around and helped my husband (who is a little camera shy) feel completely comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. Kelli helped to create a timeline for our wedding day to ensure we had time to get great photos while also enjoying time with family and friends throughout the day. She worked well with all members of our bridal party and family to get the best photos possible, and she ensures you have the proper lighting and angles for the best end result. Her combination of digital and film photography gave us some incredible photos that we will cherish for a lifetime!"
"Words cannot describe how thankful I am that Kelli was my engagement and wedding photographer! Leading up to my wedding, I was so nervous about everything coming together, and Kelli was there to always encourage me and was willing to help me with anything at all! She made the actual wedding day stress free, and when something small would go wrong (non-photography related), she quickly did whatever she could to reassure me and fix the issue. At the end of everything, I found a new friend in Kelli and had amazing photos that captured every moment of my wedding day!"
"Kelli Wellman of Kelli Lynn Photography is very dear to my heart. She has taken photos of my family, my engagement photos, and she will be my wedding photographer. She is also one of my best friends! She has the incredible ability to capture not only the most beautiful angle, but also the spirit and personality of each person in the photo. Her creative, fun, and sweet personality makes her beyond easy to work with. I would recommend her 100% to anyone for any occasion!"
“ I honestly don't have enough GREAT things to say about this photographer. When she photographed our wedding in April, she made everyone feel so comfortable and knew exactly what she was doing. Not to mention, the photos we received back from her were absolutely phenomenal- breathtaking, really. Even my family members started saying, "She really knows what she's doing, doesn't she? She was great!" She's one of a kind and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. We love her. Thanks, Kelli! ”
When I think about the word wedding, many words come to mind. Love, joy, music, celebration, laughter, just to name a few. Your wedding day is a day that you will remember for as long as you live. While it may be the best day of your life, I fully believe that your wedding day is just that start to a grand adventure that will come with many best days.
When approaching photography, I view myself as an historian. I have had the privilege to document some incredible love stories and I strive to document your story in a way that when your grand-children sit down to look at your wedding photos, they will be able to look at them and say, "Wow, my grandparents were genuinely in love!" But, more importantly I want your grandchildren to be able to see your photos and say, "My grandparents STILL love like that." Above everything else, the most important investment is in your marriage. Because of that, I approach my business in a way where I can provide you with an enjoyable experience that will enable you to invest in your relationship in addition to your photographs.
Building relationships and having a true connection with my couples is important to me. I want to be the best for you on your wedding day and I strongly believe that forming a friendly relationship with my couples allow me to provide you with the best possible service. Photography is my mission field of sorts, and in order to serve you better, I think getting to know you better is key.
Prior to booking, I love to video-chat with my couples so we can "meet" face-to-face and learn about one another! Upon booking, you'll receive my wedding magazine that will display my images in print and will provide you with helpful information while planning your big day! I will also work with you to create the perfect wedding day timeline! I love connecting with my couples, so I will be here for you in any way I can!
