animal lover
mac 'n cheese fanatic

When I'm not working, you can find me:
binge watching animal documentaries
hiking around the creek near my home
day dreaming about my next adventure.

My rescue pup, Olive is always glued to my side
+ I love that she is my little shadow.

My Story

I'm Kelly, a Buffalo-based wedding + lifestyle photographer. My background is in photojournalism, so I learned how to document events long before I fell in love with weddings. This is what I believe allows me to tell your story so genuinely. I am passionate about creating documentary style images so that when you look back at your photos you not only see but feel the way you felt at that moment. I make memories tangible so that you may relive them again + again.

"Action + reaction" (the core of photojournalism) will forever be ingrained in my mind as well as my work. I swear I can still hear my college professor saying those two words on repeat.

Whether I'm photographing a wedding or portrait session, I am always focused on capturing people's emotions + the ways in which they interact with one another. Any poses will feel relaxed/natural... your images always will look + feel like you.

Most importantly, I really, truly love my job + am always so honored to be invited to share my passion with others. Thank you so much for taking the time to learn a little bit more about me + what I LOVE to do! 

Mac + Cheese!





My puppy, Olive!

I love...

"We laughed, enjoyed ourselves and were totally comfortable working with this super talented lady!"

Kelly, I cannot thank you enough. As I said at the wedding-you were there for all the ups and downs!! Thank you for being so patient, low stress, supportive, fabulous, and just all around a joy. We were so happy to have you capture our most favorite day to date. Honestly, when it came to photos, we were stress-free and knew you would be fantastic.

"Kelly  has great passion and drive for what she does..."

Magen + Scott

Not only did she bring my ideas to life she went above and beyond that! Kelly went to great lengths to provide the best photos possible. We have absolutely no negative things to say about Poppyseed from our initial communication inquiring about services until after receiving our photographs. You have nothing to worry about if you book with her.

"She made my fiance and I feel so comfortable and the photos turned out amazing!"

Bethany + Tyler

Kelly was absolutely amazing during our engagement photo shoot! She made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable and the photos turned out amazing! I must've looked through our the engagement album a hundred times already! I am so excited to have Kelly booked for my wedding!


I believe in true love.
I believe in real, raw emotion.
I believe in loving uncontrollably + fearlessly.
I believe in capturing your day as it happens.
Always there, never intrusive.

Poppyseed couples are psyched to be marrying their best friend.
They laugh + cry together, dance like crazy, and know that
the most important part of a wedding is the marriage that continues
long after the reception has ended.

Sound like you? We might be a perfect fit! 



I cannot express the importance of investing in photography.
Your images will become a testament of your new journey,
a record of your family history + invaluable heirlooms that you will
pass on for generations.

Let me make those memories tangible through my lens
so that you can cherish them for years to come.
