Our style can be described as photojournalistic with an artistic flare. Each wedding has a story to tell and we want to be the ones to capture the story so that it can be told and re-told through photos for years and years. From capturing the nerves and the connections between the bride and bridesmaids as they are getting ready, to the first time the groom sees his bride in her dress, to the first kiss and first dance…we want to get it all on camera! I personally think that some of the candid moments throughout the day can be the most meaningful…this is how we truly capture the emotion of the day! Oh…and the tiny details that you spent hours agonizing over? Don’t worry…they won’t be overlooked if I’m around! I love capturing all of those little details! Do we still get all of the traditional family photos? Oh yes! We have to have something to show mom and grandma! In addition to the candids and the traditional shots we also like to step outside the box a bit and get some really creative, artistic and modern photos. The mix of candids, detail shots, artistic shots, and traditional shots are what make up our signature style that we’re known for. To me, our job isn’t complete without all four.
Capturing the true essence of your wedding takes a bit of a balance between being a fly on the wall and speaking up and being sure things are set just so. During the candid moments we like to sit back and watch the events and emotions unfold while still stepping in when we need to to give a little guidance…’turn toward the window just slightly’ or ’tilt your head to the right a bit’. And of course during portraits we’ll give you full guidance…don’t worry about the classic Ricky Bobby line ‘I don’t know what to do with my hands…’. We’ll tell you what to do with your hands.
Each wedding is very different as far as location and time allotted for photos and we adjust accordingly. We’ll take as much time as you’ll allow us for photos or work with as little as you have. Either way we have a very easy going approach to the portraits for the day. Many couples get stressed out thinking about being in front of the camera…our goal is that the time you spend with us in front of the camera will be a respite in the middle of the seemingly chaotic day. During that time you can just be together without worrying about what decorations need to be placed where, who is running behind schedule, or where the cake is…you’re just together…on your wedding day…happy…and ready to make some new memories.
We’ve found that there is no ‘one size fits all’ for wedding day coverage. Each wedding is unique and we’ll work with you to ensure that we have a wedding day plan that will work for YOUR wedding day. Coverage from Kelly & Stehvn starts at $2300.
Shoot us an email to set up a time to meet up with us to chat more about your wedding plans and what we have to offer. We’ll chat about your plans and help you determine how many hours of coverage you’ll need, what products (albums, etc) you will want, and what additional services you may want to add onto your wedding coverage (engagement session, PartyBooth, boudoir session, etc). This is also a great chance for you to see some sample albums and figure out if our personalities mesh well together. We’ll be following you around on one of the biggest days of your life…so this part is important! Not in the Boise area and want more info about our wedding packages? We can set up a phone consult or we can send you our online wedding consult…just let us know what works best for you!
We’re available for travel to weddings outside of Idaho and destination weddings…just ask us about travel rates!
