It’s a joy to capture the love of such incredible, steadfast couples.
Here’s what KKP couples have to say about their experience:
“You can tell that she really wants every aspect of your day to be just as you envisioned it.”
“There are so many great things I could say about working with Kelsi! From booking her as my photographer, to our engagement shoot and our wedding day everything was seamless and perfect. Kelsi really goes above and beyond to make sure you feel so special on your wedding day. You can tell that she really wants every aspect of your day to be just as you envisioned it. She is super knowledgeable about what pictures need to be captured and although she was there taking pictures all day, you could hardly even tell she was there. She was hands down one of my favorite vendors to work with! I would recommend her over and over again to anyone looking for an awesome photographer!!”
“Kelsi was great to work with. She made the sessions go by smoothly and the photos turned out awesome! If you need a photographer that will make you feel relaxed during the shoot and capture great photographs she's the way to go.”
"Right from the moment we met, I knew I made the right choice hiring her."
“Kelsi is not only a wonderful photographer, but she is always a wonderful person. Right from the moment we met, I knew I made the right choice hiring her. My entire family and bridal party enjoyed having her every step of the way on our wedding day. I cannot imagine hiring ANYONE else. Kelsi brought her husband as her second shooter, how adorable, and he was just as sweet and took the time to hold my heavy bouquet when I needed a break. If you are wondering where to spend and where to save money, spend it on Kelsi Kliethermes Photography. She is worth every cent we have and our photographs will be treasured for lifetimes to come. I have received so many compliments on my photographs.”

"She was all in! Our pictures turned out awesome and I can’t count the number of times we have been told “these pictures capture the two of you PERFECTLY!”
“Kelsi is a true gem that shines the brightest with a camera in hand! First of all, neither my husband nor I are much for being the center of attention (but on your wedding day- you kind of have to be, right?!) but from day one, Kelsi helped us be completely comfortable and relaxed. The first time we met it was obvious that she cared about us as a couple and wanted to know what was important to the two of us. While planning our engagement session, we asked if incorporating our dogs and horses on a ranch scene was doable. She was all in! Our pictures turned out awesome and I can’t count the number of times we have been told “these pictures capture the two of you PERFECTLY!” To have other people see our personalities through the pictures has been really special.
Leading up to our wedding day, Kelsi discussed the details with us a few times and it was clear I had no need to worry about her job getting done (what a blessing as a bride!). The day of our wedding, Kelsi was just as collected and confident as before. I was never stressed about what her and Blake were capturing because they seemed to be everywhere; subtly in the background, but never missing a moment! She had great ideas when the sunlight wasn’t cooperating or we needed help posing. We received our pictures super quickly after the wedding and were in awe. We have wonderful pictures of us, family, the wedding party, our guests and the reception fun! YES, we would absolutely recommend Kelsi to be your photographer! No matter what you envision, she will do her very best to make it happen! It is so refreshing to see someone this passionate about their work and makes it feel like you’re just hanging out with your friend who happens to have a camera.”

"She was able to deliver photos of my wedding that I've been dreaming about since I was a little girl."
“Kelsi deserves so much more than a 5 star review! She has been absolutely wonderful to work with for our wedding photos. She was able to deliver photos of my wedding that I've been dreaming about since I was a little girl. Being someone in an artistic career myself, Kelsi captured everything perfectly! She did our engagement photos a few months before our wedding, and she delivered nothing but wonderful images for us to treasure for the rest of our lives. I opted to a do a bridal portrait session with Kelsi as well. Ladies, this is an absolute MUST during all of the wedding planning chaos. This is a perfect time to wear your dress before the big day, and have Kelsi focus on just you, the beautiful bride. She even did a few film shots in my bridal portrait session, talk about magical! She beyond talented behind the camera, she's also very personable, and makes you feel so at ease about everything. During our engagement session, my husband and I giggled the entire time! We were so comfortable working with Kelsi we were able to be our goofy giggly selves the whole time. During my bridal portrait session, I brought my mom along, and she was surprised how comfortable I was in front of the camera.
Then the wedding day was no different. Kelsi was just sooo wonderful to work with during the whole thing! She never let the chaos of the day get to her. She made me feel at ease as the bride, and everything went so smoothly. Then upon delivering the finished product of her work, we had our photos within a month of the big day! She captured our wedding day just like I had always imagined, and so much more!”

“She made sure to capture our biggest moments, and even those small moments like my dad in his cool Raybans, my grandpa dancing with one of his daughters and us dancing with our friends…”
“I started following Kelsi’s work after she photographed a friend’s wedding and knew that she was exactly what I envisioned for my wedding. My husband isn’t exactly shy, but just a little slower to emerge from his shell. On the day of our engagement pictures Kelsi was able to make us both comfortable enough so that our pictures reflected exactly who we are. Leading up to the wedding, she was a wonderful sounding board for all of my ideas, she kept me excited and nerve free. She made sure to capture our biggest moments, and even those small moments like my dad in his cool raybans, my grandpa dancing with one of his daughters and us dancing with our friends - those mean as much to me as the moment my husband and I kissed for the first time as husband and wife. Even after the day was done, our pictures were returned quickly and we loved every single one. I could not love them more than I do. Kelsi was absolutely wonderful to us and I could not ask for more.”

“She worked with US. She wanted what WE wanted.”
“Kelsi is incredible. She is the most patient, kind, flexible, helpful and knowledgeable photographer one could ask for. My day was a fairy tale and I owe that to Kelsi. She captured every special moment of my day. She worked with US. She wanted what WE wanted. I thought I had good ideas until I met her. She had incredible ideas for my pictures. I cry every single time I look at them because I still can’t understand how someone could do such perfect job. When it comes to big events or emotional events, I usually stress. I didn’t stress once because of the support Kelsi offered me. She talked me through everything and never got frustrated even if we were running behind. She was patient with me AND my family. The work she does is one in a million. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose Kelsi 1000%. Kelsi YOU ARE INCREDIBLE!!!!!!”

She truly puts her heart into her passion of photography and has an honest love for making sure her couples have the best experience. She was able to capture the pure joy of our day in a way that was genuine and honest. If you are looking for a photographer who always has your best interest at heart and is always organized and prepared, Kelsi is the perfect pick for you!”
