My name is Kelly Marie Burns, and thank you for considering me as your photographer!
The goal of my photography is to capture the genuine nature and emotions of my subjects and have a good time while doing so. I focus on delivering photos of romantic moments with a dreamlike feel that you will cherish for years to come. Weddings are a time for laughter and love, and my photography emphasizes these qualities. At the end of the day, your wedding photos should capture the day just as you remember it and bring a smile to your face.
When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me on a road trip, dancing, or binge-watching “Friends” for the 100th time. Hanging with my animals and game nights also rate high on my fun meter.
If you are interested in sharing your story, I would love to hear from you. I’m based out of Lodi in California’s Central Valley, but I am available to travel throughout Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, and beyond.
I grew up with photographers in the family. Quickly, I became both a model and an assistant to my family members, carrying their bags and posing when the lighting was spectacular. How could I not develop an interest in photography?
My parents bought me my first camera in middle school. I started photographing anyone who would let me. My camera became a part of me; my high school friends were shocked when it was not glued to my hand. When the time came to decide on my major, the thought occurred to me that maybe I could do this for a living.
In 2009, I began the journey to becoming a professional photographer by attending Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, majoring in art and design with a concentration in photography. The business came soon after. I have loved turning my passion into my career. After spending years on the Central Coast, I have returned to the Central Valley. Here, I specialize in wedding photography. In addition, I also photograph family portraits, senior portraits, and proposals.
