Reviews from our amazing clients, a timeline of your experience and what makes a Hetler bride!

"You don't have to be perfect to be beautiful. I promise."

Love, Kellie

  
My goal is for everyone to feel beautiful just the way they are, flaws and all. I'll help you embrace your curves and love your imperfectness.  We will find all the good angles together and you'll feel like that stunner you have been all along.  Let's go!

Kristyn - event coordinator

"Kellie's heart shines through her images."

Not only is her work absolutely stunning, the process behind the scenes of booking, communicating and receiving the photos back has been so carefully thought through, it's seamless. 

Emily - florist

"We felt really comfortable in front of the camera."

Kellie gives specific instruction without making the images feel too posed.  The way she gives direction makes people feel extremely comfortable when they otherwise wouldn't be.

"Kellie's images feature details
and tell stories that can easily be
 missed or forgotten"

Keri - special occasions

The investment made in working with a professional photographer with experience is something that can never be underestimated. Kellie is truly one of the best and her beautiful images will live on your walls in
the most beautiful way possible.

Do you shoot film or also digital?

I mainly shoot digital but am currently learning more and more about film and am secretly falling in love!

Do you travel outside of michigan?

Oh goodness, yes!  I have photographed weddings in California, New Orleans, Chicago, Florida, New York City and Northern Michigan.  I have a never ending bucket list too!

Do you help us dress for our session?

Of course!  I am more than happy to give recommendations, help find the perfect shade of blue and tell you what will photograph best.  But as always, whatever you feel most confident in will look the best!

How many images will we receive?

Each wedding is different but we typically deliver approximately 100 images per hour of shooting (or more).

do you recommend a second photographer?

Yes, always!  A second photographer is able to capture moments when I can't be in two places at once and they are also a safety net on such an important day.

will you work with animals?

Oh goodness, I love animals!  Especially dogs...  If you have a pet and want them photographed too, feel free to bring them along!  We can make it happen!

why do you shoot digital?

Digital photography is very reliable.  You can verify throughout the day that images are recording properly and you can even backup while shooting.  I like security.

will you ever offer a film option?

I sure hope so!  I'm currently working on becoming proficient in film so that I feel comfortable shooting it for my lovely clients.  I won't until I'm ready though so have no fear, it'll be worth the wait!

do you shoot video?

Unfortunately, no.  I can only be great at so many things so I'll leave that to the professionals. I do, however, have several teams that I love working with and will happily recommend.
