Kelsey Regan Photography

Photographer

Kelsey is a wedding and portrait photographer who captures heartwarming photographs that will tell a story of your wedding for years to come.

In Their Own Words:

Hi! I’m Kelsey and I help couples tell their Vermont wedding story through heartwarming photographs. I’ve been a New England wedding & portrait photographer since 2011 and have photographed over 200 weddings throughout my career. 

After undergrad at UVM (go Catamounts!), I attended Hallmark Institute of Photography, then jumped right into a busy career in photography. 

I love getting to know my clients and having the privilege of a front row seat to document their wedding day. The variety of photographing weddings of all sizes, in all seasons, in all corners of this beautiful state is one of my favorite parts of my job. 

My work has been published here on Vermont Weddings, and in national wedding publications such as Style Me Pretty, Martha Stewart Weddings, The Knot, and more. 

When I’m not capturing engagement sessions, elopements & wedding days, I love to ski, enjoy a night out in Burlington, watch a Lake Champlain sunset, and enjoy all that Vermont has to offer.

Favorite Moment During a Wedding: A couple’s walk down the aisle, right after the ceremony, their first kiss, being introduced as married. It’s always such a joyous moment. They’re freshly married and there’s such a blissful vibe to that moment. 

Favorite Vermont Activity: I’m a lifelong skier, so in the winter I love to hit the slopes & après scene!

We couldn’t be happier that Kelsey was recommended to us from another Bride! Kelsey has only done our engagement shoot thus far, but from the initial inquiry, Kelsey was responsive and informative about her entire process. We were a little nervous about being in front of the camera, but Kelsey made it feel so easy and fun. We absolutely love our engagement photos and she was able to perfectly capture and create our vision. We can’t wait to see what she has in store for us at the wedding next year. Thank you again, Kelsey!

Hiring Kelsey as our engagement and wedding photographer was one of the best decisions that we made! Kelsey was extremely responsive and professional throughout the planning process and on the day of. On the wedding day, Kelsey and her 2nd shooter were so well prepared. Kelsey helped us to stay on schedule, corralled family and friends to where they were supposed to be, made adjustments on the fly to make for a perfect day, and made sure that everyone was happy and having fun. Kelsey’s organization skills made for a calm and successful wedding day. Kelsey delivered sneak peek photos within 24 hours, and they were better than we could have ever expected. We received the full gallery 1 month later and the photos captured our day so perfectly – she is so talented! We highly recommend Kelsey Regan Photography to any couple! I hope our paths cross again in the future!

Kelsey is the absolute best and we recommend her without any reservations! 10/10 experience from start to finish, which mind you included rescheduling due to COVID-19. As two people who do not love having their photo taken, Kelsey was exactly who we needed! Her guidance was clear, thoughtful, and specific in a way that was deeply appreciated. She was wonderful with young children, dogs, and mobilizing larger groups so the bridal/family portraits were easy and fun! Additionally, throughout the whole process, she was very responsive and her experience combined with her kindness shines through in all that she does. Lastly, the photos were AMAZING. Not only were so many of our favorite moments captured but we also felt like we got to experience even more of our wedding through looking through the photos – what a gift. Kelsey is exactly who you want to photograph your big day…not to mention she is just an all around awesome person who also happens to be an exceptional photographer!!

Kelsey is truly the best! She is so professional and efficient while also being very personable, caring, and kind. From the first time I spoke with her to the day she sent us our photos she never missed a beat and always got back to us in a timely manner. I didn’t know it was possible for a photographer to be so efficient. I honestly couldn’t even tell Kelsey was there while we were getting ready she did such an amazing job at blending into the background and capturing her moments, and for the couple/family photos after the ceremony she made them feel like a BREEZE. I was honestly dreading that part because I thought it would be long and annoying but she got so many amazing photos in such a quick and easy manner and I am so grateful! My entire experience with Kelsey was so comfortable, easy, and enjoyable and anyone would be lucky to have her there with them on their big day! Not to mention the final products that she produces are absolutely STUNNING! Cannot recommend Kelsey enough!

made. She is the BEST to work with and I can’t recommend her enough. It’s difficult to find an amazing photographer with such a friendly, warming and comforting personality but Kelsey encompasses it all.

She takes amazing pictures, is incredibly organized, talented, professional, kind, and overall fun to spend time with (which, as a bride is SUPER important given you will be with her all day!). She felt like a friend that I’ve known for years!

She brought an assistant (Kelly) who was also incredible. They both went above and beyond, doing way more than necessary outside of their photographing duties.

Kelsey captured beautiful pictures on my wedding day that I will cherish forever. My guests were raving about how amazing she was! I am in awe of her talents and think she is an absolute GEM! I will be recommending her to all of my friends and family.

Kelsey was an absolute pleasure to work with – and the pictures she took were STUNNING! We used Kelsey for our micro-wedding in Stowe, VT. Kelsey completely understood the vibe of the wedding because she herself had a small wedding. I felt like she understood what we were looking for the moment we connected. It was like we had a friend with us the day of the wedding. She was so calm and organized that it made the day really run smoothly. Our family and bridal party were so impressed with how organized and efficient the pictures went. We even added in last minute additional pictures, and Kelsey was happy to accommodate. We cannot recommend Kelsey enough and we look forward to working with her again in the future to capture other life events!

Hiring Kelsey was one of the best decisions we made while planning our wedding. We are so grateful to have found her! From the very beginning of the process she was kind, personable, and incredibly responsive despite how busy she was with all of the COVID related changes. We were nervous about our engagement shoot as we’re not super natural in front of the camera and she provided just the right amount of direction and made us feel totally comfortable. At the wedding, she was the most calm and steadying presence. We didn’t have a wedding planner, and she went above and beyond to help us coordinate timelines. Her work is absolutely beautiful and she is just a gem. I cannot recommend Kelsey enough!

Kelsey exceeded all expectations and more with her professionalism, warmth, and calm organized precision. When we interviewed her as a prospective photographer she said that this is one of the few vendors you will be interacting with all the time so it’s important to like them, and my husband and I can assuredly say that we love Kelsey. She took our engagement photos, and then our mini covid marriage photos and finally the photos for our long awaited wedding day, all while helping us navigate planning a wedding during covid and staying calm, cool, and collected to boot. It was such a comfort having her with us for all of these events, we knew we could trust her without a doubt to capture all of the perfect moments. My husband’s grandparents were so impressed they asked for portraits for their 60th wedding anniversary as well. Ultimately Kelsey felt like a friend at our wedding who happened to be an excellent photographer just for us and we look forward to using her in the future!

Kelsey is the best of the best! It was very important to us that we felt comfortable and at ease with our photographer, and Kelsey exceeded those expectations! Kelsey was warm, engaging, knowledgeable and professional throughout the process; she is incredibly responsive and organized, and made planning so easy. We had so much fun getting to know her during our engagement shoot, and come wedding day she went above and beyond to capture every moment perfectly. Kelsey’s presence is so calming, and we received many compliments from our bridal party and guests on how great she was to work with! On top of everything, her photos are AMAZING and we received our entire wedding gallery within a month of our date!! We couldn’t recommend a better photographer, Kelsey is a must hire!
