Happy Clients

"Kelley has been our family photographer since our son has been 6 months old! She has taken his 6, 9 and first birthday/12 month photos and our family portraits the last 2 years. Her photos are stunning and her eye for getting the right moments is exceptional! On top of that she is not only kind and genuine but amazing with kids! I don’t think we have had one bad picture yet! Kelley has also been our photographer for our local AYSO region the past 2 years and our families have loved their photos and Kelley! She is an amazing photographer but an even better person and truly cares for her customers. She wants more than just the good picture, she genuinely wants to ensure they have lasting memories forever!"


"My husband and I used Kelley for our wedding day photography and we are so glad we did! Not only is she amazingly talented, but she went above and beyond her photographer duties. Climbing on chairs, old covered bridges, stepping into lake water, all to get those perfect shots & angles!! She even made sure we didn't need anything prior to showing up that afternoon (such as bobby pins, hair spray, coffee!) You name it, I bet she would have gotten for me. I was also so impressedwith her patience with my very curious and rambunctious 4 year old daughter and 6 year old nephew, she let them both be mini photog assistants a couple times, which was absolutely sweet & adorable, and much appreciated. She is professional, talented, flexible & accommodating, and delivered beautifully captured memories that we will cherish forever. We couldn't have asked for anything more while working with Kelley."

"I’ve had two lovely sessions with Kelley, both very different but both equally as beautiful! I was so nervous for my shy and reserved boyfriend to have a prom photo shoot, thinking he would not cooperate but Kelley told us exactly what we needed to do and the pictures are gorgeous and worth every penny! The second shoot was a family shoot as a surprise for my mom for her birthday! It was at a Christmas tree farm in chilly November but boy was Kelley spot on with her vision because the photos are to die for!!! Kelley was able to shoot my mom, her boyfriend, my boyfriend, myself and even my moms sisters all in one session. It was so amazing to have professional pictures taken that will last forever. We love cottonwood studios!!"


"Kelley is amazing! When we got engaged I knew finding a photographer was probably one of the most important "wedding plans" to us so I wanted to make sure we found someone who would be willing to step out of the box a little bit. She definitely delivered! She made sure to ask us if we had any special requests. We had a huge wedding party and guest list and Kelley was able to control the craziness like a pro! She captured our wedding perfectly and I can't stop looking at our beautiful photos"

"If you want pictures that you will cherish for forever, Kelley is your girl. She captures so much more than just an image. She has documented the first year of my daughter's life and I don't even know where to begin to pick a favorite. These pictures are definitely something my family will hold dear for years and years." 



"Kelley has been our photographer for over 3 years now. Her work simply explains itself. It is breathtaking, high quality and simply the best I've ever seen. She never ceases to amaze with me her attention to detail and her patience with my two spunky (sometimes difficult to work with children). I recommend her to nearly everyone I meet. I can't count the number of word of mouth clients she has received simply from the pictures people see on my profile and always are quick to ask, who took them, we want to go to her! I could literally rant for days and I typically don't pay many people compliments but she is truly remarkable and one of a kind. She always makes time for us even with her busy schedule. She has became over the years like family to us, watching my kids grow through her art of photography."



"From someone who felt a little awkward about taking engagement photos I can tell you Kelley is a miracle worker! Not only did she get these amazing romantic and fun photos of us, she also made a special trip all the way down to NYC and Hoboken so that we could have our engagement photos taken in the city where we live. I can't wait to see the photos she takes at our wedding!"

"Kelley is the best! She can see the beauty in every moment and capture it on film. Anybody would be lucky to have her be their photographer"

Trisha & Steve


"I absolutely LOVE how our engagement photos came out!! Kelley did an amazing job not only with the photos, but with keeping us laughing and calm! This session was a lot of fun and I cannot wait for her to shoot our wedding! She is so creative and unique with her poses and I can't wait to see what she comes up with on my wedding day! I would recommend Kelley for any occasion that needs to be photographed!"

Danielle & Wayne


"We don't have enough great things to say about Kelley! From the moment we met her it felt as if we'd known her for years, she made us feel completely comfortable and at ease. Her patience, attention to detail, perfectionism, energy, style & creativity is impeccable. We absolutely LOVE the engagement pictures we've seen so far & can't wait to see the rest We will positively be using her to capture our special wedding day. Thank you Kelley!" 

Kelly & Mike


"I can not say enough about this photographer! She was easy to work with, had great ideas and talent. My husband was even impressed with the photos and he is a tough critic. We recently did a maternity photo shoot and my son who is 19 months old was absolutely miserable and impossible to work with so Kelley suggested we try again. Second shoot the same thing but she worked very hard and had a lot of pacience I don't know how it's possible but we ended up with great pictures and even with my son smiling! In the past we paid other established well known photographers for pictures that were mediocre. I am so grateful that I was recommended to use this photographer who genuinely cares and has a true passion for her work.I will be using her again very soon!"

Sarah & Pete


"Kelley is seriously AMAZING!! My fiancé and I were kind of nervous going into our engagement pictures because we had never met her before and weren't sure what to expect. She made us feel so comfortable and the posing felt a lot more natural than we thought it would. Our pictures turned out amazing and we are so excited for her to photograph our wedding this fall!! I would definitely recommend her to ANYONE!"

Shannon & Martin


"Kelley was absolutely wonderful for the most important day of my life!!! She directed us well; and the photos were seamless and easy, she was also way more creative than I would have been! She captured the joy and love of the day!!! She is a professional and does beautiful work! We will hire her again for the beautiful moments of our life. Thank you Kelley!!!"

Katie & Steve


"Kelley was an absolute joy to work with on our wedding day. She is so organized and insightful while also being supportive and sweet. She knew all the answers to my random questions and brought me a few props I didn't have time to make myself. My husband and I look forward to working with her again! Her photos captured our day perfectly and she stayed much later than most photographers would and got lots of great shots of family and friends at the reception. Highly recommend kelley for your wedding or any photo session you will need!" 

Alex & Brandon


"Kelley goes way above and beyond for her clients! She is such an amazingly gifted photographer and an even better person. She makes you feel incredibly comfortable and is there if you need anything at all! I honestly can't say enough about her! She captured our 

wedding day perfectly!"

Sarah & Andrea


"Kelley is not only an amazing person but an amazing photographer. She did both my engagement photos and my wedding photos. She took my ideas and put her creative spin on some of them and it results in photography genius. She was interactive with my whole wedding party but somehow kept my drunk groomsmen on task. She was there from the start of the day until the end. Her work is beautiful and her adventurous nature makes no pose or back drop impossible. I would one million percent recommend this girl for any of your professional photography needs/wants. Anyone wanting to see her work I would be happy to share my engagement and/or wedding photos with you :) ....Thank you Kelley!!

Amanda & Shea
