Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Hey! My name is Kelly Sharp, artist / logistics coordinator / guide / hype girl. I specialize in surprise proposals, engagement photos, elopements, and small weddings. Lake Tahoe is home base, but I travel to destinations around the world. I’m all about celebrating & capturing love stories and my motto is: Feel good look good. I know that awkward feeling when in front of a camera, so I incorporate movement, storytelling, activities, and a little booze into my shoots. Photography is in my name and in my blood, as a 2nd generation photographer. I've seen it all and survived with grit. From first contact to planning to the shoot, expect streamlined, custom planning and a unique experience. My planning process is tried and true so we can be stress free and flexible day of. My online client portal is a central hub for all details, docs, payments, and more. LAKE TAHOE is my home. I grew up vacationing here, went to college here, and now I travel the world but always come home to Tahoe. I'm always exploring this beautiful place and finding perfect photo spots to share with clients (WITHOUT the crowds)! It's so so special to me to share my favorite, secret places with my amazing clients. This region is spectacular and it creates a stunning backdrop for lovers to celebrate each other. The views are epic, the laughs are deep, and the photographs are unique. Thanks to my photography skills, Tahoe knowledge, and outdoor guide logistics experience, my clients receive one-of-a-kind location recommendations, logistics plans, and photo experiences. Contact me today to see a recent client gallery, discuss options, dish the details on your love story and dreams, ask questions, etc. Can’t wait to hear from you, and congrats! Cheers, Kelly Sharp

We had proposal photos taken at Lake Tahoe. She was very professional and flexible. Was able to kayak to the remote location and coordinate everything and it all went smoothly. I also asked her to be discrete and she played her part well. The fiancé didn’t doubt it for a second! Glad I selected her.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    No. Hidden. Fees. I’m upfront about price, I don’t change things or catch people off guard. When we discuss your unique Kelly Sharp Photography package, we’ll nail down all the important pricing details, and have everything in writing so there are no questions/confusion later on. Wedding packages start at $2,000 and go up from there, most clients spend around $4,000. I’m always willing to discuss discounts and options!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Each day is curated to each couple. 1. Contact me. We’ll communicate, gauge whether we’ll be a good fit, get to know each other ask/answer questions, put together a package that fits your day, etc. 2. Deposit + Booking. When we settle on the perfect package, you’ll pay a non-refundable 50% deposit and complete my booking form through your online client portal (an online hub for all details, important info, and lots more). 3. Planning. I’ll make sure all the bases are covered in the time leading up to your shoot. I’m always available by text/email/phone and occasionally meet up with clients for pre-shoot drinks. 4. Shoot. The big day! I typically scout all locations day-of or before (I’m not booking back to back shoots) so we’ll have plenty of time and backdrops to capture your lovin. 5. Sneak Peek Photos. 2-3 days after your shoot, I’ll send a few of my favorite shots to tide you over until the rest are edited. I don’t have time for social media, but feel free to post and share my contact info! 6. Gallery Delivery. 2-3 weeks after your shoot you’ll receive your full online gallery (typically 100+ high resolution, professionally edited digital files) where you can view, save, download, order prints, and share the gallery. 7. You’re a part of the Kelly Sharp Photography fam! Contact me in the future for discounts on anniversary shoots, maternity pics, etc.
