Kathy + Andy | Sedona, AZ | Rancho Los Lagos


Kathy & Andy came to Sedona all the way from London to get married! Kathy was positively giddy around Andy and even during the ceremony you could see how much fun these two have together. The entire wedding was outdoors, which was gorgeous but a tad cold toward the evening hours. At Rancho Los Lagos in Sedona we are able to drive up to a spectacular view of Cathedral Rock. There are so many great shots from this event, you have to view the slideshow. Details for this event were coordinated by Weddings in Sedona and included Simply Delicious, and Showstoppers. Congratulations![...]

Laura + Nate | Flagstaff, AZ


Laura and Nate were married on a beautiful October day here in Flagstaff. It was a tad chillier than they had hoped but Forest Highlands has a fantastic backup location: the Meadow clubhouse and I have to tell you, I LOVED it. Beautiful chairs, cozy fireplace, windows everywhere and of course made a gorgeous 'aisle carpet' of flowers. Everyone stayed warm and it was really lovely. Nate won some serious brownie points by surprising Laura with a vacation planned for 2009 in Greece. If every groom could pull that rabbit out of a hat on the wedding day, you would be smiling like Laura.slideshow is at the bottom of this post. or click here for a new window to view it larger.[...]

Holiday Card Mini Session


There are still a few more sessions available for Monday and Tuesday afternoon for the Holiday Card Mini Session. Call our studio now to reserve your spot. 928.225.2511

Scroll down to get the details.

Jake Bacon and Family Christmas cards


I photographed Jake Bacon's family the other day. He helps me second shoot weddings from time to time. He's the photo editor of the Arizona Daily Sun newspaper.

This session was a good example of making the house location work for us. One of my favorite things is to shoot inside and outside the family's house. Often, I can find little nooks that make for great portraits. Later, in terms of family history, these photographs will carry great importance. It's the house where your first baby was born or where you got married and made so many memories together. It's important that the house not be forgotten as a part of your family history!


Mini Session & Holiday Card Special


For all of you who have yet to get a Holiday card together-- we have a great last minute opportunity for you to schedule a mini photo shoot at our studio. We are using a simple red wall that can be either red or gray (if you opt for black and white).

Here's how it works: We are offering 5 mini portrait sessions at our studio this Saturday, Monday and Tuesday afternoons - December 13th, 15th & 16th starting at 2:30PM. Each session will last no longer than 20 minutes.

The special session fee will be $125 and includes a set of 25 cards and envelopes. Additional sets of 25 cards are available for $75

What to wear: Black tops looked good for our trial session and is always flattering but solid colored tops will do. Consider that the background is red and try not to wear white.

You will be able to choose the photo from your session that afternoon to add to your choice of holiday cards. We are offering three options of cards for this shoot.

option 1: plain folded textured linen card with photo on front with 2 line custom greeting on the inside.

option 2: flat 5x7 card with photo inset to template below. 2 lines of custom text on the back of card

Call our studio today to book your session. 928-225-2511 or email us at cameron at cameronkellystudio dot com

Just a note--- We personally send New Year cards. It takes the stress out of trying to get something in the mail before December 25th.

Family Christmas Photos


We had a quick mini session for a family Christmas card for one of my best college girlfriends and her family. Their kids were so fun and cute. I’m going to miss these guys terribly when they move at the end of the year. Thanks Camille!!(image)

WPJA Q3 contest


Won an 11th place for this cool toasting photo of Joni and James. 11th is better than 20th I guess. Tough competition.

My little One


My daughter Naomi, 5 years old, is in her first year of ballet and had the opportunity to be in the Nutcracker this year. I feel like I've transitioned into a whole new world of motherhood this week. My baby is a little girl. It's so much fun! I snuck in for a few photos during their dress rehearsal to play with the new D3- these were all hand held shot at 6400 ISO. Not too bad.

Baby Talia


Sneak peak at sweet little Talia born a few weeks ago. I had the wonderful opportunity to visit just two weeks after her birth. She came a little early, but perfect as can be.

Fall Preview-- playing Blog catch up!


I fell behind on the ole' blog. There I said it. It's tough to keep the 10,000 image workflow fast and furious. I'm still catching my breath after delivering a baby, adjusting to a new baby... remodeling and opening a new studio downtown. I'm spending the winter catching up! As I poured over wedding images tonight, I got teary -- no, I really did. I do love my job and sometimes when I spend some time with the photographs it calms me... I've been stressed out lately. I can't wait for you all to see your images... there are some priceless moments in here and I just did a cursory edit.I picked some fun images to show here. You are all truly beautiful. I was honored to witness so much true love this fall. McKinley-Johnson Oct. 11, 2008Here are a few great photos to get you up to date...

Jimi-- oh and Mel+ Ray


Um, how cute is little Jimi-dog? Christmas card photo shoot. Love it. Love it. Mel and Ray? Love 'em! We "went for it" and drove all the way up to Merry-Go-Round Rock.

Camille + Brian | Arizona Snowbowl | Flagstaff, AZ


Camille and Brian were so easy going and so in love. They planned a Flagstaff destination wedding from Phoenix. The day started out pretty cloudy and we weren't sure if mother nature was going to cooperate... but she did! Camille giggled with joy when the sunset turned out to be exactly as she had hoped. It was gorgeous. These two were off to Greece after their wedding and I was jealous!click here to get the slideshow in it's own big window or click the play button below to see the slideshow within the blog.[...]

WPJA Trash the Dress Contest 5th Place


More exciting news! I won 5th place in the first ever Wedding Photojournalist Association Trash the Dress contest. I feel pretty honored because it seemed like the Polish took this award.

Trashing the Dress is a "post wedding" photo session where the bride and groom take some chances and are not afraid to "trash" the wedding dress. If you are interested, it's really fun and we can make some really AWESOME images. I have really wanted to do some of these session in the RED dirt in Sedona or in Oak Creek. After all, when are you really going to wear your wedding dress again? Saving it for your daughter? Did YOU want to wear YOUR mother's wedding 20-30 year-old gown? I didn't think so.... your dress is made for YOUR event and frankly I'm ready to make the most of it. They actually wash up pretty well. My buddy Matt sometimes calls it the "Wash the Dress" session.

Exciting news today! Jamelle and I were interviewed for the local paper, The Arizona Daily Sun. Check out the article here... Maybe Owen and I will walk down and get a copy and shoot the actual page. I think we made it above the fold... we'll see.

Have Baby will Travel


So the first trip we took when Owen was 5 months was bad, REAL bad. Second one, not so bad. The difference is that he actually slept on this second trip and didn't scream in the cars when we traveled places. MAJOR improvement. We drove to Tucson to shoot a wedding last Saturday and the 5 hour drive was the longest he's been on and he did great... I did have to entertain him for the last hour of the ride, but otherwise, success!

Grand Opening Party


It's been one thing after another and our Grand Opening was a huge success. Finally, everything is done for our space-- even the lighting is up!It's an amazing feeling to have your work on the wall and everyone talking about it. It is something that I didn't expect to experience with my wedding work... as it's not really "sell-able" to anyone except the family of the client.It was a funny feeling when I looked over at Jamelle and the mass of people Thursday night and realized everyone had come to our party for US! It was humbling and awesome. I had clients, vendors, friends and family. Special thanks to Hollye Schumacher and Stuart Thurkill who came up all the way from Phoenix and documented the event while we were too busy to do so ourselves.**more photos will be posted once I get some more images from those guys**We'd really like to thank all the vendors who helped us pull this off.Steve Douglas of Artists in Rhythm played with a Gypsy Jazz trio! Everyone commented about how great the music was! Andrea from Sedona Cake Couture made an incredible chocolate camera cake for us --delicious! Kim Duncan pull off the PR and event coordination for this event... which was fantastic. Simply Delicious made some awesome little bites to eat and a local wine shop, Vino Loco poured incredible wines for us all night. Showstoppers made some beautiful arrangements for us and other wedding peeps and photographers in attendance... Karen Lynn, Katrina Wallace, Dawn Kish, Raechel Running, John Running, Melissa Dunstan, Tina Juberg, Heather Kadar, Karen Sorenson, Donna Shoemaker and Yvonne Baca all came to show their support. Special thanks to Jason Hasenbank from the Flagstaff Photography Center for helping us get event day up and running and for the use of the beautiful gallery next door to our studio-- the photo booth was a huge hit because everyone always loves to get old fashion photo booth pictures! baby Elise (Katrina's baby) Karen Lynn showing off a cute photo strip Hollye eating some delicious Cake Stuart loves a photo booth Stuart checking out hot girls (in a photo strip)...outside looking in...**more photos to come of the cake, the space, etc) **[...]

Just for Fun


Ijust wanted to give a little update on our crazy business merger, studio opening and phone, email, webpage and general computer chaos!!

We moved into our cute little space the first week of October and so far the transition has been ...well... umm...less than productive. It took a miracle to get our phone number ported. The webpage is a little behind schedule, which caused (and is still causing) some interesting email mishaps and an overall general stress level that I don't wish upon anyone. Every morning Cameron and I come to work and make the statement that some day, life will resume as normal.I have a feeling that it may never come.

However; we do try and have fun every now and again. This morning we were the ones behind the camera for a change --and in the process I snapped a few fun photos of Cameron.


Below is one of the great canvas prints we will have hanging at the Party this Thursday night. I love HUGE prints.

Cheers!! - Jamelle
