My fiance and I wanted a creative engagement session and Kelly came with ideas for locations and we were really excited about her out-of-the-box ideas for poses. We didn't want to be cheesy or traditional and she totally listened to us and made sure we were happy with her interpretation. The pics turned out amazing and we will be recommending her to our family and friends!Sent on 06/11/2021
The Golden Hour Photography's reply:You are both the most adorable couple ever. Even though you aren't getting married until after you graduate in 2023...I hope we will be talking all over again about how fun your wedding album is!!!

Kelly from Golden Hour Photography was incredible! She was so kind and fun to work with!! She was prompt, and so artistic with the natural backgrounds during our engagement photos!!! Typically my partner and I feel awkward in front of cameras but Kelly made us feel so comfortable and the photos she captured were stunning!! Can’t say enough good things about the experience!!!Sent on 06/11/2021
