  • Kelly was absolutely amazing as a wedding photographer. My husband and I had never used a professional photographer of any sort, so we were a little nervous going in. But Kelly made us feel so comfortable, not only with her but with the camera. She really captured the love we have for each other and how happy we are to be officially starting this new chapter of our lives. The photos are gorgeous!! Also, I want to note that Kelly really goes above and beyond for her clients. She took a very small job, our 8 person quarantine ceremony, and stayed extra long to make sure we got great shots of everyone. She was completely prepared, having sent me a shot list and questionnaire beforehand. We also received the digital photos so quickly and a couple weeks after a beautifully wrapped memory stick with all the pictures. Overall, our experience with Kelly was great and we can't wait to use her for our big shindig next year!

  • Like many couples, our wedding plans were foiled by covid and we decided to elope! Both our families are quite a distance away, so hiring a photographer who could capture the intimacy of our day to be able to be shared with them was critical. We were attracted to Kelly’s photography style based on her portfolio, but we knew she was a keeper once we had our first conversation. Kelly’s the best- she’s easy going, professional, fun, flexible and above all was committed to delivering all we could’ve hoped for and more. On the day of, Kelly made us feel so comfortable and gave us guidance when needed (even gave me advice when I was struggling with my hair and makeup!), but was never intrusive. She sent us some photographs the next day (which was so exciting since we didn't have any of our own to look through), and our complete gallery was sent in a beautiful keepsake USB. Kelly is so talented- all our family and friends have specifically commented on how incredible our photos are. ... Read more

  • Terrific photographer and person. Kelly went WELL BEYOND our expectations. She was extremely professional and at the same time, we felt so comfortable with her; she helped all our pictures look fantastic and natural. If you are considering Kelly along with other photographers, I hope you use this as your sign to go with her, you will not regret it and in fact, you'd regret not doing it! She had samples to us the same night as our wedding, and the entire album in less than two weeks!

  • Kelly and her husband Derek were an amazing duo to work with on our wedding day 9/21/19, and we cannot say enough about Hourglass Photography! From day one when we met for our engagement shoot, Kelly made us feel incredibly comfortable which is not easy to do in front of the camera. She was able to capture some of the most authentic shots of us on the beach that day, which excited us for what was to come on our even bigger wedding day! We were not disappointed. Kelly took care of every photo I wanted with my girls while Derek took care of the men. They set up where we wanted to do our first look, and it was MAGICAL. Kelly and her husband let my husband and I soak up the moment with each other, we forgot there were even pictures being taken! They let us take our time embracing the moment, and never once interrupted or told us to start posing. I CANNOT WAIT to see these photographs! Kelly had a list of every photo combination we asked for including attention to details and decoration... Read more

We had such a blast through your planning and then getting to see your vision come to life with your written vows in the beautiful vineyard followed by the killer dance party! Your words really mean a lot, I'm so beyond grateful we were able to deliver everything you wanted and help you enjoy the start of your marriage :) Thank you! Love, Kelly

  • where to start.. Kelly went above and beyond what we ever could have expected for our backyard elopement; if you’re between a few photographers, use this as your sign to pick her! She made my husband and I feel so comfortable, and the pictures really proved it. She captured every moment with ease, our guests couldn’t even tell she was there! (Unless right in front of us) - she gave tips to make each picture flawless. We had samples within hours and the photos in less than a week. I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer and you’ll be just as lucky if you decide to work with her as well.

    THANK YOU, Ali! It was such a pleasure to photograph your elopement, I'm thrilled that you're happy with the photos and the experience of working with me! I appreciate you sharing your kind words!

  • Words cannot express how absolutely amazing Kelly was for our wedding. Due to Covid we were unable to use our original photographer and we weren't sure if we wanted to hire a professional photographer. But once we got in touch with Kelly we knew that we had to book her! She was just so down to earth and really made an effort to get to know us and our story. Her energy is so warm and welcoming and you can tell by the way that she talks that she loves what she does. We were so glad we decided to have Kelly capture our day. She made us feel completely comfortable in front of the camera and our photos came out absolutely amazing. If you are looking for someone talented, genuine, and who is able to tell a story through their work than look no further and book hourglass photography!

    Thank you, Kirsten!! I’m beyond glad I was able to add to your wedding day and memories :) I loved getting to know you and am sincerely so appreciative you asked me to share in your beautiful day! Thank you for the kind words and I wish you two the absolute best!

  • Our experience with Hourglass Photography was absolutely perfect. We were looking for a very specific type of photography, and Kelly was able to do exactly what we asked! She went above and beyond our expectations. My husband and I are awkward people and don't usually look good in photographs, but Kelly was so fun and kind that we immediately relaxed and we had so much fun. She genuinely cares about the people she photographs and is so excited for them. Our photographs turned out AMAZING. She is seriously the best around the North Shore. Choosing Kelly was one of the best decisions we made regarding our wedding. We can't thank her enough. Seriously, you want Hourglass Photography.

    I'm THRILLED you had a great experience working with me, I really do care about the couples I photograph and it was amazing and so fun getting to know you two! It means so much to hear that I exceeded your expectations, helped you have fun and relax, and that you're happy with the photos! Thank you for the kind words and taking time to share your thoughts, I appreciate your feedback and that you asked me to share in your day!

  • Kelly is absolutely amazing! My fiance and I were nervous about finding a photographer especially since we were from out of state and wanted to make the most of our Boston photoshoot. We were definitely not disappointed! Kelly was so responsive to our messages before the shoot and made us feel really comfortable in front of the camera on the actual day. End result: the photos are phenomenal! I can't stop looking at them!!

    Thank you for the kind words! I'm glad I was able to help you feel comfortable and have a good time (I had a blast getting to know you too) and that you're happy with the end result! :)

  • Kelly is so amazing! She made my husband and I feel super comfortable in front of the camera. We had our engagement and wedding photos taken by her and they came out STUNNING!!! I am a plus size woman and was super nervous about having professional pictures taken. She made me feel so incredibly comfortable and stress free. She's the best!

  • Kelly is AMAZING! My husband and I are both really shy and we get suuuuper awkward when we're in front of a camera, but Kelly made us feel so comfortable! We actually ended up having a lot of fun during the photo time. We've already gotten a few preview photos back and they are seriously gorgeous! Kelly has a knack for capturing those real, special moments and we can't wait to see the rest!

    Chelsea, thank you so much for the kind words! It means everything that you felt comfortable with me on your day, that you're happy with the end results, and that they captured you authentically. You two are so much fun and I had a blast getting to know you!

  • Kelly was organized and prompt from the beginning! She was very accommodating in scheduling a time for us to do our engagement shoot as we were coming in from out of town. She picked a beautiful spot for us and even spent time researching it to make sure she got the lighting perfect. She sent us a prep guide with tips on what outfits to wear and everything which I greatly enjoyed! During the shoot Kelly was so easy to work with. She didn't make us do anything that we were uncomfortable in, and really just gave us suggestions and let us do the poses how we naturally would. The pictures were AMAZING! We've gotten so many compliments on them from friends and family! All of our friends were so impressed by the quality of our photos. I can't thank Kelly enough, she truly was amazing from start to finish! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer!

    Thank you so much Sara! I had a great time with you two and I'm so happy you enjoyed the whole experience. This time is about you and I'm glad to be here to help :)

  • We booked Kelly for our wedding last month and we couldn't be happier. She was so incredibly helpful, laid back, and thoughtful from start to finish. She and her husband Derek made sure we got all of the photos we wanted, and they all came out beautifully. We're so thrilled we had Kelly as our photographer and we would absolutely recommend her!

  • My fiance and I took our engagement photos with Kelly and it was the best experience we could have hoped for! She is very responsive and friendly. She kindly offered to drive us to the photoshoot location so that we wouldn’t have to pay for parking! We felt extremely comfortable with her and she did a fantastic job of leading us through natural poses and kept us laughing the entire time. The photos themselves are lovely and plentiful (we got 150 photos that all looked well retouched in a great way). We highly recommend Hourglass Photography! :)

  • Having your photo taken can be such an awkward experience. Kelly set my husband and I at ease, providing natural direction rather than formal poses. She made us feel in the moment and I can honestly say that we enjoyed the part we thought would make us the most uncomfortable. The results were stunning. I knew we had made a great decision when Kelly continued to be in frequent contact leading up to the big day and made us feel like she was thinking of us even if we didn't necessarily need anything from her. She was incredibly organized from start to finish and she was the only vendor I wasn’t concerned about! Kelly is incredibly thoughtful and accommodating - ensuring that she knows what is important to her clients. Our dog was one of those things - so rather than have us all spend extra time hiking the venue property, she loaded us (AND the dog) into her own car. Even more than that, I received a link to a sneak peek on the way home from our reception! Talk about going the ex... Read more
