GET TO KNOW ME who i am and how i do it



Kelly was incredibly responsive and also super efficient, which was important to me since I am a major overplanner.
She made everything perfectly seamless and was so helpful throughout the entire planning process.

As Principal Photographer of Kelly Ewell Photography, I could sound very official and tell you about how I went to school for photography and the history of my accomplishments. But let’s push stuffy aside and instead highlight who I am a little bit differently.

I know:    everything happens for a reason
I like:       a good Cosmopolitan, Bulgari perfume, Asiatic lilies
I love:       my husband, Saturdays, chocolate, with all my heart
I have:      lots of lists, closets organized by color, Richmond Spider pride
I laugh:    freely and with abandon
I think:     a lot
I splurge: on raspberry merlot wine, Williams Sonoma Fleur de Sel soaps
I value:     honesty, hard work, a good mani/pedi
I sing:      poorly but often
I am not:  a morning person, very competitive
I worked: at NFL Films, at Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus
I wish:      I liked to cook, I wasn’t so ghostly pale, for more wishes
I look:       pretty put together on most days, forward to all the new introductions I still have to make

When you hire a wedding photographer, you’re not just hiring a skill or a style you see on a website. You’re also buying into that person – skills, style, personality, and all – as someone who will capture one of the most important days of your life. You need to feel a connection with your photographer and trust that we will perfectly capture your wedding day in a way that will still make you smile when you look back on your photos in 20 years!
