Raves and Reviews
I found Scott on The Knot while researching doing engagement photos in Naples, FL. My fiancé and I live in Connecticut, so we did not get to meet Scott before our session. With that aside, he did a fantastic job. I love all of the photos from our shoot, and am having a hard time picking a favorite since they all look great. Thanks Scott for making our photo shoot feel so easy and relaxed! I would definitely recommend him!!
Nothing short of AMAZING! —Emily V
When I started looking for photographers to take our engagement photos Scott Kelsey Photography was one of the first ones I looked at and kept going back time and time again. After I contacted them, I received a super prompt and thorough response; I knew I found the photographers for us! They were extremely helpful in deciding where to shoot, what time, how many outfits, and many other details! They even made a shared Pinterest board of some types of poses I wanted to capture during our shoot. The day of was extremely cold and sooooooooooo windy (hard to believe in usually sunny Florida) and they were even willing to reschedule. We pushed through, and we still got soooooo many beautiful shots! Scott and his wife Linsey were so much fun to work with and it was neat to see both their creative eyes for getting the perfect photos for us! I would (and have) recommend them to everyone looking to have their photos taken in the SW Florida area! Did I mention, you get the shoot, unlimited photos with artistic enhancements, copyrights to the photos (where I’ve found a lot of photographers will not give you for engagement photos), and a beautiful personalized disc with all the photos from your session. If you book with Scott Kelsey Photography you will not be disappointed. Your hardest decision after reading this review will be choosing which photos to print after your amazing photo session with those two! Thanks Scott & Linsey Kelsey!!!
Magical Pictures: Sunset Wedding on Sanibel Island, FL —Alyssa S
I married my best friend on July 19 at sunset on the beach of Sanibel Island at the Island Inn, resulting in a modern-day Brady Bunch with each of us bringing two kids to our blended family. Throughout the process of wedding planning, I remained calm, even when my dress didn’t fit 3 weeks before the wedding and through various other small snags. The one and only thing that made my heart pound a little faster was the looming wedding photography. I do not like to be in front of a camera – I have always only felt comfortable BEHIND a camera. My anxiety about the wedding pictures increased throughout the day of the wedding right up to the moment Linsey walked into our cottage. From that point on, she made me feel absolutely comfortable and relaxed, and I even enjoyed our pictures – a testament to Linsey’s skills considering I’ve spent 40 years despising having my picture taken! True to the nature of weddings, the event was a blur but I do recall how seamlessly Linsey fit into the scene, capturing so many wonderful shots of the wedding and friends and family, yet never being present to the point of altering the moment. We were floored by the number of pictures Linsey took and were absolutely thrilled with the quality and beauty of the pictures – even the goofy expressions sported by the 4 kids turned out great! My step-son DOES NOT smile for pictures and Linsey managed to capture some beautiful, candid shots of him – such a rarity and such a gift to us. One of the best pictures Linsey took was especially meaningful. My husband’s parents were unable to travel to the wedding because of his mother’s recent recurrence of breast cancer. A friend used an iPad to Skype with my new in-laws throughout the ceremony so they could still feel included in the event. Linsey got an incredible shot of our friend holding the iPad; with a clear view of my in-laws on the iPad screen with the wedding ceremony taking place is the background. Most photographers would not have picked up on this special circumstance, let alone captured something so poignant. That picture brought grateful tears to our eyes! Every aspect of working with Scott Kelsey Photography went perfectly: the planning, the variety of pictures, the inclusion of all the wedding guests in various pictures, and the thoughtfulness and creativity that went into each shot, creating a wedding portfolio more beautiful and magical than I could have imagined or hoped for. Thank you – we are forever grateful! And we hope to get back to Sanibel Island soon to celebrate my step-father’s 70th birthday. We would love to work with Linsey again for family portraits, and every bride would be lucky to have Scott Kelsey Photography shoot her wedding!
Wonderful experience —Michaela B
Thank you for the fantastic pictures! You were great to deal within every aspect. The weather was not perfect but all of the pictures came out beautiful. My husband and I are beyond pleased with our pictures that documented every part of our magical day! You are affordable, kind, laid-back and very professional. We will contact you when we renew our vows!
Barefoot Beach Wedding on Sanibel… At Sunset
My husband and I were recently married in Sanibel Island, FL. Our wedding package included Scott Kelsey’s services. Since we are not from the area, we didn’t have the opportunity to get to meet the photographer in person, so we had to trust our wedding planner. I was able to view some samples of the photography ahead of time, and loved all the pictures I saw. I could see that they did awesome work! Linsey was our photographer. Working with Linsey was like having a family member as our photographer, she fit right in. Being a florist for 15 years and having set up hundreds of weddings, I was rather picky and had a list of different poses that I wanted, she was so wonderful about everything, and the pictures turned out so beautiful! This pair is extremely talented at photo journalism and really knows how to catch that perfect shot, over and over! For a smaller wedding that I was keeping more simple on purpose, you really caught all the elegance and flair that was our special day. I had no idea I could be so beautiful, and thanks to Linsey for making a Bride Blush even after the ceremony 🙂 Thank you so much, I would recommend you over and over again.
