Kelly was absolutely fantastic! She made my fiance and I feel so comfortable and worked great with our dog so she could also be included in our engagement photos. We highly recommend Kelly!Oct 11, 2019VerifiedKelly Vann Calaway Photography's reply

We worked with Kelly for our engagement photos and wedding day photos. She was professional and friendly. We usually don’t like taking photos but Kelly made us feel comfortable. The engagement photos came out amazing. I got a sneak peak of the wedding photos and fell in love with them. I’m looking forward to getting them back. I would highly recommend her to family and friends. It was great working with her and we will definitely be using her in the future.Nov 28, 2019VerifiedKelly Vann Calaway Photography's reply
Mandy working with you and Ben was such a pleasure! You are a sweet, kind and genuine couple. I'm so happy that I was able to capture such a special time in your lives! Your snowy wedding was a photographer's dream and I'm thrilled to have been a part of your day.

I had the pleasure of meeting Kelly a couple weeks ago. My, now fiancé, hired her for our surprise engagement at Pitt Street Bridge in Mount pleasant. He planned with her for weeks and had nothing but good things to say about planning the surprise with her. When that moment came I was completely shocked, a mess from crying tears of joy and I couldn't have imagined a better photographer to have shared those moments with. My fiancé and I are never in front of a camera like we were that day and were completely out of our element, but Kelly changed that in an instant. She makes you feel so comfortable and she's so fun to be around. Then the photos came back....WOW! They were amazing and she captured our personalities and the emotion of that day. I love her use of natural light - such an amazing, talented woman. I'm in marketing so I've worked with a lot of photographers in the past (the pressure was on for my fiancé to choose a good one...haha) and Kelly is by far my favorite! You'll love working with her, I promise! Thank you, Kelly. We can't wait to work with you again soon!Sep 29, 2016VerifiedKelly Vann Calaway Photography's reply

Kelly photographed our wedding back in November 2014 as well as our engagement session and my bridal portraits. She did an awesome job at capturing all of the memories from all of those sessions and especially our wedding day. She was awesome to work with prior to, during, and after the wedding. The quality of the photos were amazing!Sep 13, 2016Kelly Vann Calaway Photography's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do have standard prices for portraits and weddings. I also have standard hourly rates for events. However, I'm always happy to have conversations with clients to determine the appropriate rate when their request is unique.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When possible I like to set up an in person meeting with new clients. This is a great way to discuss their photography needs and if I'm the right person to capture their vision. I do work with many destination clients, so that is not always possible, so I offer phone calls or FaceTime meetings to chat. We discuss their needs, desires and locations to create the perfect solution for each individual client.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a degree in business and am a self taught photographer. I've worked diligently over the years to teach myself the technical aspects of photography and editing. I continue my education thru online classes, in person training and seminars. I'm constantly seeking inspiration and keeping myself energized by engaging with peers in the industry.
