Kelly Carey, owner of Kelly Carey Photography, recently paid a visit to Granite Ridge
 as the photographer at one of our amazing couple's wedding. I was lucky enough to spend some time with her - in fact, she came right up to me with a huge, friendly smile and introduced herself, saying, "I am so excited to be here!" Now to me, that is a big deal, because nowadays people are very shy and prefer the comfort of a cellphone or an email, but not Kelly. She is the definition of a "people person," and she navigated the wedding with ease, taking gorgeous photos as she went. 

How did your passion for photography begin? When did you decide to make it your career?

mothers_day_2016_-2-21-992631-edited.jpgI have always been handy with a camera and had a fierce love for beautiful images. But the day I shot my first wedding, I fell in LOVE with the whole idea of a capturing a story in such a way that the bride and groom felt that I was sharing and embracing their entire relationship not just that day. And I really do. I immediately knew this was my passion. I love learning about their past and their plans for the future. I love meeting their families and friends and making a collage of moments that reflects the love and excitement they all share.

Do you have a signature style? What services do you offer?

I’m inspired by real life events, especially on a wedding day. I might notice a quick moment mb3.jpgand there are usually two reasons why. It is beautiful scene, and I can relate to it personally in
 some way. It’s an extension of who I am to be able to identify those special moments. The couple may not even realize till later when they see the photos what memories were captured. My style is about capturing the real life of people and settings. It’s very reality driven. I love capturing the beauty in life. I also offer bridal boudoir sessions with my brides if they choose!! Makes a great surprise wedding gift! <3

How do you set yourself apart in your industry?

When you book with me and you get a personalized engagement session that I feel really sets bm3.jpgthe tone for this exciting time and all day wedding coverage, because there should never be a time limit on a wedding day! I strive to give each client an experience, not just pictures. I want us to get to know each other and I want us to be friends. I want to take your excitement and deliver it right back to you in personalized images that you will cherish forever. 

What is your favorite thing to shoot?

The moment that the groom first sees his bride. The excitement is palpable and makes me hold my breath. I love it love it love it.Maine Mountain Wedding Venue

Do you have any advice for couples or anyone looking for a photographer?

Choose somebody that you know you can trust because the last thing you want to do on your wedding day is worry about anything other than living in the moment. It goes by in a blink but the images will be treasured forever.
