I fell in love with wedding photography the very first time I covered a wedding. There is nothing better as a photographer than photographing happy people, precious moments and beautiful details.
With a degree in photography from New York University, I take my background in photojournalism and use it as the basis for every wedding. I strive to record every moment, be it overt or subtle, that occurs throughout the day. I am always looking for beautiful lighting or a scenic backdrop in which to create a portrait of the new bride and groom. From the first photo to the last, I am dedicated to making your wedding day as enjoyable as possible and to creating memories that you will cherish forever.
I live and work in Manhattan with my puppy, Lucy.

All the incredible reviews here could not be more accurate. Kelly is truly amazing in every way. Picking a wedding photographer can be really stressful, and Kelly was truly the best vendor we worked with for our wedding. We did engagement photos with her and she makes you feel instantly comfortable right away and tells you exactly what to do in order to get the most perfect shots. On our wedding day, we were behind schedule and Kelly managed to get every shot we wanted and more than we could have ever dreamed of. She also kept me extremely calm and made sure I put on my best face for photos! The day goes by SO FAST and I can't even believe all of the shots she was able to get. I honestly usually hate professional photos of myself and I could NOT have been happier with Kelly's work. She also became an instant friend and we loved working with her and spending time with her. She's truly amazing!!!

Kelly was the perfect choice for our intimate City Hall elopement. My husband and I both aren't huge fans of being photographed, but her upbeat and cheerful demeanor helped put us at ease. She accompanied us from City Hall in Manhattan back to Brooklyn on a fun and spontaneous jaunt across the river via ferry and around our neighborhood in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. We wanted a combination of more candid shots of the day with our immediate family, and a few tasteful staged portrait-style photos, and she delivered phenomenally well on both fronts. We ended the day on the roof of our building taking some fun and silly photos with our two dogs, which she kindly indulged us in. Kelly is an excellent communicator, and does her very best to make her clients happy and meet the collective vision of the couples she works with. I highly recommend her to anyone, as she made our day so incredibly special.

Kelly made our day!
She made everyone, from the wedding party to family to us (bride and groom) feel relaxed and at home in front of the cameras. Several people from the wedding commented on how professional she was, while blending in and capturing the essence of the party!
She was incredibly organised, worked closely with our vendors to ensure alignment of timelines, approach and sensitive points. Kelly listened when we had requests about length of photographs, number of posed shots and stuck to it on the day.
And then we got the pictures and we were blown away! It seemed like she caught every smile, some tears and all of the love throughout the day.
I would (and have already to those I know!) recommended Kelly hands down to anyone looking for a creative, thoughtful and approachable photographer who delivered excellent results.
Kelly is an incredibly talented photographer! All of her pictures are "frame worthy" and she is hard working, and has a great attitude!
Kelly Kollar is an extremely creative and artistic photographer. I'm always excited when I get the chance to work with her!
