I was blessed enough to be able to work with Kelly for our engagement pictures, my bridal portraits, and our wedding photos! All of which were nothing short of AMAZING! Not only does Kelly possess a phenomenal skill, but she's a wonderful person. She listens and really makes sure your vision becomes a reality. I was a unique bride, definitely marching to the beat of my own drum, and Kelly "got me." She understood right away my like and dislikes and did everything she could to make sure those special moments were captured in a unique way. She's patient, kind and flexible... I could go on for days all the amazing things she did for us, and how she was able to accommodate our requests, but her work speaks for itself. I'm not an emotional person, or at least I didn't think I was, but when I first saw our wedding pictures (and not even the entire album) I burst in to tears! She captured everything; things I didn't even remember. The amazing part is not only did I get a picture, but all of the emotion that took place at that very moment in time. It's the most beautiful thing! I hesitated on whether or not to get a videographer, and we didn't. I thought I would regret it a little, but honestly, no video could ever compare to the memories Kelly captured.Sent on 01/27/2014
Kelly, James and I thank you SO much. You've been such a wonderful person on this long journey of ours :) We were fortunate enough to have KellyX2! If you ask me, you both are the best things since sliced bread! Just know, no matter where we are, you'll have to be there to capture EVERY special moment!

Photography is hands-down the most important investment you will make in your wedding! It is the only thing you have left to remember the one day that is all about you. I am so happy that we chose Kelly Mihalcoe as our photographer. We discussed what we wanted to capture in our day and Kelly NAILED it :) The quality of her work is UNMATCHED. She is very protective of the bride and groom and their desire for the day and was sure to make sure we got every shot we had requested. Her professionalism was flawless and she was flexible as well. For example, I had scheduled w/ her to take photos with my bridesmaids before the wedding at an outdoor spot in Colonial Williamsburg. The 40 mile an hour gusts of wind on our day meant that we couldnt be outside for many shots (especially since we had all had our hair done). Kelly brainstormed and came up with an idea to do shots in an airplane hangar! GENIUS! These pictures are some of my favorite from the day and so much better than my non-creative mind had planned. She captured the photojournalistic style that I had requested perfectly. I am so thankful for all of the effort she put into making our day so special. KELLY YOU ROCK!Sent on 03/03/2011
Kelly J. Mihalcoe, Photographer LLC's reply:Jen, thank you so much! I have to say you have been one of the prettiest brides and your heart matches! You all were breath-taking to photograph and made the job of doing so a blast! Not only do you have the memories, I too have many and are already booking many many brides from your wedding! Thank YOU!

Having Kelly as our photographer was one of the best choices we made when planning our wedding. Choosing the right photographer was one of the most important decisions we knew we would have to make for our wedding and after looking at all of our pictures, we couldn't be happier with the decision. The stress of the wedding and all the planning coming together is unavoidable, but Kelly took off so much pressure and allowed us to enjoy the most important day of our lives. She was fun, creative, and kept the mood very lighthearted, while at the same time maintaining her invaluable professionalism. We would recommend Kelly Mihalcoe to anyone who is looking to have one of the funnest photographers with the most natural creativity. She will truly give the wedding day a perfect touch.Sent on 03/05/2011

Kelly provided exceptional quality and creativity in photographing my oldest daughter's special day. Jen's wedding was captured on film from beginning to end, with so many special moments caught, that are priceless. Kelly's tireless attitude to stay focused and persistant is so appreciated. I recommend her highly to anyone who values the memories of their special occassion! My heart still jumps from the inspiring shots of each intricate piece of that special day. THANK YOU so much Kelly!Sent on 05/13/2011

Kelly was a joy to work with and my whole family not only loved the outcome, but enjoyed the experience as well. Kelly's creativity and talent gave us photos that will not only help us cherish our special day forever, but that also have memories of their own. Kelly was also very flexible in meeting my unique needs as well as adhering to the confining rules of the ceremony location. But most importantly, ever time I see the photos hanging on my wall (though they probably deserve to be in a wedding fashion magazine instead) I smile because of the ability Kelly has to capture the love, happiness, and other emotions.Sent on 01/26/2011
Kelly J. Mihalcoe, Photographer LLC's reply:You are so kind! It was an honor to be able to serve you both! Your family was so gracious and enjoyed being able to help your day be special! You all deserve it! Thanks again!

This photographer was absolutely amazing!!!! She truly captured all that I had hoped and beyond. She got plenty of shots of our venue and decorations which came out brilliantly. She has a beautiful personality and was able to work really well with all our family and bridal party. She maintained professionalism at all times, but has a great sense of humor! She was able to make what could have been a painstaking and boring picture-taking process into a fun, light-hearted, stressfree experience. She asks you upfront about your expectations and desires for your wedding photography and is determined to give you exactly what you ask for and beyond. I knew she wasn't a magician and couldn't make me look 30 lbs lighter than I am.....but she willingly worked on our pics to make my arms 'appear' smaller in the pictures than they really are and kept that in mind while shooting to prevent taking bad angles....which I am forever grateful for! This photographer is DEFINITELY worth the investment, which you will see in your pics when you book her for your wedding. She was also very fast in getting our pics to us after the wedding and did a lovely print job of our engagement photos as well. She did such a phenomenal job that the HAMPTON ROADS BRIDE magazine featured her pictures of our wedding on their site and in the latest Spring issue under the title 'PICTURE PERFECT'.

Thank you Kelly for the spectacular job you did in making our day fun and capturing it all on film!!!
Kelly J. Mihalcoe, Photographer LLC's reply:Shan, you know I so appreciate you all! You all are amazing and what style and grace! The energy you all have and create around you makes everyone enjoy whatever the event! You are both inspiring and I will cherish the opportunity I was given to capture your special day! Thanks for your trust and so love the friendship with you both!

We were very happy with Kelly's services for our daughters wedding. She was flexible with our schedule and we really appreciated that. Now we have these wonderful photographs to always remember how beautiful it was. We would highly recommend her.Sent on 02/16/2011

Kelly Mihalcoe is amazing! She was extremely professional and I loved her creativity. She met with us a few months before the wedding to show us examples of her work, which we loved. On the big day, she took several pictures of the girls getting ready, then continued to do an amazing job during and after the ceremony. The reception pictures were both posed and candids, and they all turned out beautiful. She was not pushy and was considerate of everyone's time. When I show my pictures to people, they love what she did. I HIGHLY recommend her!!!!Sent on 01/27/2011
Kelly J. Mihalcoe, Photographer LLC's reply:Appreciate your kind words and was a great time with you all and such a historic site as well. Thanks for having me!

Kelly was our the wedding photographer for our daughters wedding in Sept in Williamsburg, Va and we could not have chosen a better photographer! She was professional, artistic and she made everyone feel comfortable and beautiful. She did her research ahead of time and took the bridal party off site to get some incredible shots.The hardest part is choosing which photos to print...there were sooo many great ones. Our daughter and son-in -law are beyond delighted with the wedding photos. WONDERFUL!! Thank you Kelly, we have great photos to remember such a beautiful day!Sent on 03/01/2011
Kelly J. Mihalcoe, Photographer LLC's reply:Thank you so much Cindy! Everyone was such a delight and were great fun to shoot! Wonderful celebration!

"I decided for my 20th Anniversary, I would like to get back into my wedding
dress, my husband Mike would wear a suit and we would take pictures here in
Colonial Williamsburg to show how happy we are today as we were on our wedding
day. Also I wanted to capture outside pictures that just weren't done on our
wedding day. Hiring the right photographer was the most important decision I had
to make. I googled Williamsburg Photography and found Kelly's website. I
loved what I was seeing and became excited that this could actually come true.
I called Kelly and she was so easy to talk to. I explained what I wanted and
Kelly was enthusiastic to do be our photographer. From that first phone call,
she told me how fun this was going to be for us and the pictures would look
natural, not posed or stiff. When we actually met in person the day of the
pictures, it was like meeting up with a friend. Kelly's friendly personality
made it easy to discuss ideas I had for the day and she truly listened.
Being the professional that Kelly is, she surpassed our expectations. True to
her word, my husband and I had a fun day and the pictures show it. Every
picture shows Kelly's creativity, quality and passion for photography. She told
our story '20 years later' through beautiful pictures to treasure and remember
Thank You Kelly!

Kelly worked with us on our 50th anniversary celebration in Williamsburg. Kelly was a pleasure to work with. She set up some beautiful shoots of the family. The pictures are amazing. We had a wonderful afternoon with her both around Williamsburg and at the dinner at Shields Tavern. There were 15 in the basic party and it swelled to 22 for dinner at Shields Tavern. Seven of the party were are grand children, and Kelly did a great job capturing them against all odds.Sent on 11/21/2017

This photographer promised quality work and unique fun bridal party shots. I was not given the chance for these and all of our photos were traditional line up. The photos had a strange washed out effect and some of them just aren't flattering at all. She did not ask our families to stay for photos so we only had my husband's family for portraits. I asked for photos of the venue and decor and I was given maybe 4 or 5. The photos of the ceremony have the golf carts in the background and most of them are crooked. The quality versus the money we spent was not matched. It was very disappointing. I do not recommend this vendor.Sent on 01/09/2011
