Bride interview with Ed Kelley Photography
Please take a moment to read before hiring
Ed Kelley & his photography team.
How long have you been doing what you do and how did you become a photographer?
Ed’s been around photography all his life. His dad was a photographer and he remembers helping him. Of course that meant he was holding lights and stuff until he was old enough to buy his own camera. All his father’s knowledge and love for capturing people wore off on him and Ed has been photographing people for as long as he can remember.
Denys has had a love for pictures since she was a little girl. Unlike Ed’s dad who valued pictures, Denys’ dad never kept pictures. In fact one of her most treasured images is one that at 5 years old she took out of the trash! Then years later had the picture restored, framed and presented it to him on his 50th birthday. He cried. It’s those moments that are frozen in time and packed with wonderful memories that Denys holds so dear.
You’ve been doing this for a long time- how do you stay fresh and current with today trends?
To keep up with the changes in photography and the current trends in the wedding industry both Ed and Denys attend seminars, webinars, workshops and professional photography schools. In addition they also belong to several professional groups. Ed is a Certified Professional Photographer with The Professional Photographers of America.
We love your Packages and your portfolio everything sounds fantastic! Can you tell me what sets you apart from other photographers?
Ed brings his gentle way of letting you enjoy your wedding day while getting the images that are so important to remember and cherish forever. Denys brings her enthusiasm to celebrate your special day – to embrace the moment and capture exceptional emotional images.
Or if you like as one of our brides said- the strong silent type with the perky fun… the perfect couple to cover your wedding!
This all sounds so wonderful but it also sounds expensive. I’m wondering if we are going to be able afford this?
Wedding photography is an investment. It’s the memories that come to life when you visit a picture from that day. You can’t put a price on the joy you have when sharing your wedding pictures with your family, your future children and grandchildren. This is an investment that you will enjoy for years to come and be so proud of yourself for making such a wise investment.
