About Kelly Jo Photography

Kelly Jo Photography


I started out as a photographer raising funds to go on a mission trip to India back in 2011. Since then, I’ve been there three times and to other countries near and far around the world. I am based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and am excited to travel anywhere here, or worldwide for you. Since photographing over 240 weddings, I know when to step forward and take the lead, or step back and let a moment happen. My style leans towards classic, timeless, natural, full of color and true to you moments, that you’ll always treasure.

I’ve been told I have a “calming” presence that helps people feel comfortable and relaxed, I truly want you to enjoy your wedding day, and not feel like you’re in a day long photo shoot! To be a good wedding photographer one has to be able to transition through every style and situation at the drop of a hat, every wedding is different, it keeps things fresh and fun! It’s always an honor to witness the joining of two families with all of the emotions and traditions that two people in love bring.

    Kelly was amazing! She was so efficient, fun to work with, very communicative both before and during the wedding, and so understanding when things got chaotic. She and her daughter, Taylor, worked together flawlessly and the pictures turned out amazing! I am obsessed with them. I could not recommend Kelly Jo Photography any more! Phenomenal!

    Kelly was phenomenal to work with! She was very professional and very easy to work with. The photographs she took at our destination wedding turned out AMAZING! She found the perfect places to take pictures, she was able to efficiently organize a large group of us for posing for the wedding pictures and she captured everything during our wedding/ceremony perfectly!

  • Very professional and easy to work with!

    Kelly photographed my daughters wedding in 2021 and I will never forget the ease and grace that she handled photos with. Our grandson has some special needs and is not easy when it comes to photos, Kelly was patient and kind. Additionally, the rest of the day she was never "front and center" to get photos but went "unnoticed" and somehow in it all, we have the most beautiful photos that represent the day perfectly.
