Kelly J Photography – Reportage Somerset Wedding and Portrait Photographer » Somerset Documentary style wedding photography and natural outdoor portrait shoots

  • Welcome toKelly J Photography |pleased to meet you
  • Thanks for visiting my website, I'm so pleased that you've found me.

    I'm a documentary style wedding photographer who proudly calls Somerset my new home. Originally from North Wales I have travelled all over the country for work. I love getting to know couples and being involved in a little piece of their story. My style is unobtrusive, relaxed and natural. I like to capture moments as they naturally unfold in front of me. Quirky and bohemian weddings are my ultimate favourite.

    In addition to weddings I also photograph portrait sessions on-location, so if you'd like a family/couple/baby portrait shoot please get in touch.

Well this was an entertaining session if there ever was one. I loved this family, they were so much fun and down to earth. We started off by taking some lifestyle shots of everyone feeding the ducks and having a walk along the river, then stopped for some big group pictures to end the shoot.

Smiles and silliness always make for great portrait ingredients.

I absolutely cannot wait for this couples wedding! Kirsty and Gary will be getting hitched at the beautiful Abbeywood Estate next year, so we headed off to Delamere for a very fun and entertaining forest engagement shoot.

I just love sessions that are natural and true, and just about a couple being themselves with each other. Wondering around the woods, getting lost, laughing so hard our cheeks hurt, talking about cake.

THIS Wedding! wow. wow. wow.

I love Ruthin Castle, it has to be one of the most gorgeous venues ever! I’ve been lucky enough to work there before, but this was my first medieval wedding and it was not disappointing.

Sam and Mike put so much into their wedding, it was absolutely beautiful. With it being October, they filled the venue with pumpkins and maize and Sam even customised her dress and shoes, as well as making her stunning headpiece. The ceremony had a cosy atmosphere with a real fire and lots of candles and the banquet hall for dinner looked spectacular. Each table scroll was named after a family from Game of Thrones, which a jester then read out to get everybody seated – and get drunk on mead!

A big thank you to Sam and Mike for having me document their amazing day, and also a big thanks to my brother for being my trusty assistant! It was an all round brilliant wedding.

A few months ago, I donated a couple of my sessions to the Neuro Therapy Centre in Saltney for one of their fundraisers, last month I shot one of these prize sessions, which had been given to a lovely little girl named Phoebe for her 8th birthday. 

I had the most fun photographing Phoebe, who needed very little direction as she smiled and curtseyed for every click of the camera. We searched for big crunchy leaves (as big as our faces) and picked out our favourite pine cones, we also got Mum, Dad and Grandma for a couple of pictures.
