Client Experience

For my most updated reviews, please look up “Kelly Applegate Photography” on Google Maps. Below are some other reviews I have received over the years.


Highest Recommendation

We give Kelly the HIGHEST recommendation possible! Not only is his photography beautiful and professional quality but his character and demeanor make your wedding day a wonderful experience. Many people focus on the photographer’s style when searching for a photographer but forget to consider the photographer’s character and demeanor. This person will be with you in the biggest moments of one of the biggest days of your life! Kelly exhibited kindness and patience with our large wedding party and family, but also kept things on schedule. We are so grateful for Kelly’s involvement in our wedding day and the beautiful memories he captured for us! We LOVE our photos! We’ve recommended him to many of our friends and we look forward to him photographing a wedding in our family this summer!

Best Wedding Photographer Ever

Kelly Applegate is an outstanding photographer! I worked with Kelly for engagement photos and wedding day photos and we enjoyed our shoots/photos immensly. Before our appointment, Kelly made it a point to meet with and talk about what we wanted in a photo shoot. He even encouraged us to bring examples of photos that stuck out to us from other photographers. He is very open minded and is up on the modern trends of photography.

My husband and I can sometimes be “camera shy” but Kelly made us feel right at home and didn’t ask us to do anything that was out of our comfort zone! When I received the link to view our photos, I was relieved to see that the photos depicted my husband and I perfectly. There were no odd photos with weird poses, it just looked like us enjoying each other, which is exactly what I wanted! On our wedding day, Kelly was taking pictures all day and never missed a beat. He was with us from the time we were getting ready in the late morning, all the way to midnight when the reception ended. His photography skills never faltered and we had hundreds of beautiful pictures to enjoy!

After our wedding, Kelly even followed up with us to see how we enjoyed our photos and asked if there was anything else that he could do to make our session perfect. I ended up having Kelly and his intern make a custom photo album of our day. The album is wonderful in quality and we get complements on the album all the time. We are extremely pleased with our photos and will continue to enjoy them for years to come! I would highly recommend Kelly Applegate to anyone that wants not only custom, clear, beautiful photos, but wants to work with a man of character that truly cares about his clients.

Best Photographer!

We loved working with Kelly for our wedding. He was so easy to work with and provided us with beautiful wedding pictures! He was great at working with each of our families and helped make the day run so smoothly! In planning for the day he was really flexible with what we wanted and had great ideas and suggestions for different pictures. Everything was so organized and he provided us with all the pictures we wanted while not taking us away from the reception for long. We got all of our pictures so quickly after the wedding and couldn’t imagine a better experience. We highly recommend him for any and all weddings, engagements, senior pictures, etc! You will be so happy with the results!

Highly Recommended Photographer
We had the privilege of working with Kelly for our wedding. Kelly had photographed some of my former high school classmates’ weddings and was very highly recommended to us. After working with Kelly, I can see why! During the planning stages of the wedding, Kelly was extremely responsive and insightful. After meeting with Kelly in person to go over details, he sent us a summary of the proposed schedule, open actions, and any remaining questions he had. With all of the other vendors and details we were trying to finalize, we really appreciated that Kelly spent the time to put the notes together and get them to us.
Working with Kelly and his team during the wedding was absolutely a treat. Several of our bridal party and family members have commented about how great Kelly and his team were to work with. Kelly was extremely flexible and laid back, but also was very focused on making sure that we got some really great shots. There are two moments that really stood out to me that I think speak volumes about working with Kelly. We had scheduled our first look to be at around noon, and I was running about 30 minutes behind schedule on getting ready. Kelly checked in with me periodically to make sure that he knew how we were going to adjust the timing. Not only that, Kelly adjusted the timing to ensure that we got plenty of great first look photo opportunities as well as bridal party shots.
The second moment showcased Kelly’s flexibility and willingness to cater to the couple’s requests. During the cocktail hour, Kelly had planned to set up lighting for the ceremony and take some pictures of the reception room. We happened to stumble upon a room with a gorgeous window and didn’t want to lose the picture opportunity. Kelly was so accommodating. He immediately came to the room, provided some great technical insight on how to best use the light, and took as many pictures as we wanted.
From a pure experience perspective, I would recommend Kelly to anyone I know getting married. I’m not sure I can count the number of time my husband and I have mentioned to each other about how happy we are that we went with Kelly as our photographer.

We LOVE Kelly Applegate!

We highly recommend Kelly Applegate for Wedding Photography and Family Portraits. We are thrilled to work with Kelly anytime we have the opportunity to do so. We completely trust Kelly to capture all the photos our clients want, but also the ones that they are not expecting….the ones that capture intimate moments of true joy and happiness.

Kelly is very flexible and easy to work with, but most importantly  he always makes our brides feel comfortable and confident on their wedding day. We have never received a complaint from a Bride, Groom or their family about the time they spent with Kelly or the quality of photos they receive following their big day.

Again, we cannot recommend Kelly enough. You won’t be disappointed!

Highly Recommend!

Kelly Applegate has been our official family photographer for over five years.  He has done family portraits, senior portraits, and most recently our son’s wedding.  Kelly is attentive to details, flexible, and easy going.  He is able to put everyone at ease while at the same time getting all of the perfect shots.  Kelly also works hard to get your pictures to you in a very timely manner.  Kelly captured so many perfect memories for our family.  I have recommended Kelly to numerous friends and he never disappoints.  I would highly recommend Kelly to anyone needing a wedding photographer.

Phenomenal Photographer

I was a bridesmaid in my cousin’s wedding when I first met Kelly. I had been a bridesmaid in many weddings and Kelly was the one photographer who stood out to me, which is why I picked him to be my own wedding photographer.

Kelly adapts well to the group around him. He is extremely friendly and laid-back, but will take charge when needed. He has a personality that makes you feel completely calm and at ease, from booking through event day. He is very creative, professional, timely, attentive and accommodating. He is very quick to respond by email and flexible when scheduling meetings. He will lend his professional advice regarding the wedding day timeline and how many photo locations can be planned – I was so happy to get this advice beforehand as it made the wedding day run much smoother. In both weddings I experienced with Kelly, he had assistants with him, all matching the same wonderful personality and quality experience that Kelly himself brings.

Kelly also gets photos back to you very quickly – I had a few photos texted/emailed/Facebooked to me in the couple days after the wedding, just perfect to quench that thirst to see photos before the rest of them are edited. He also gives you all photo files via computer download and free of that watermark that some other photographers use.

Senior Portraits

The photos are wonderful!  Thank you for your time, expertise and quick turn-around. Hope to keep in touch for future projects as I have four younger kids who will need senior photos eventually and hopefully some weddings in our future.

Awesome Senior Photographer!

I had an absolute blast working with Kelly Applegate Photography! We spent a few hours running around the city, changing outfits, and taking photos with some of my best friends. I had 6 outfits and some props, but he made them all work! He made things so fun and easy. Not to mention he took TONS of pictures! Super happy with the photos I’ve seen so far and I would recommend him to anyone who wants photos taken of any kind!
