Laura Kelly shot my Engagment Session and Headshots. She has also retouched several pieces for me, and her work is always impeccable. Laura has that rare combination of a perfectionist, an artist's eye, and a comedian's humor that makes her the idea photographer! She helped my husband and I feel absolutely comfortable with her, and this way quite a task, as my husband was not so comfortable in front of the camera. We laughed and had a great time. I would recommend Laura Kelly for any occasion one hopes to document with love and artistry. She is also very reasonable with her pricing, and extremely flexible. It was great to get to work with such a talented, young photographer, who produced the kind of quality work I have other friends that have paid other photographers more than double for.Sent on 07/14/2010
