Kelly did an AMAZING job at our wedding. I do not even know where to begin. From the moment we inquired about her services till the day we received the pictures, Kelly has been professional, courteous, and timely. We planned the wedding from across the country and were not able to be as hands on as we would have liked, but Kelly was beyond accommodating and understanding. She exceeded all of our expectations and hopes. The photos were delivered in the most amazing package and arrived quickly after our big day. The compliments from our friends and family have not stopped yet. They were amazed at the quality of the images and Kelly's ability to capture so many beautiful moments. We cannot thank her enough and would definitely recommend Kelly to anyone who is looking for a photographer!

Kelly exceed our expectations from start to finish! She was a dream to deal with in the lead-up to our wedding – the perfect balance of low-key and detail-oriented – and we are so, so pleased with how well she and her second photographer captured the feelings of our wedding day, not just the happenings. She was truly "ninja-like" in her approach so that it never felt like she was noticeable or intrusive – she has more of a photojournalistic feel, while also giving enough guidance on how to pose so that you don't feel awkward during the shots that are more staged. All of our family and friends loved her, also, which I know contributed to comfortable, candid, joyous photos that we will treasure forever. I highly recommend Kelly and her team and would be thrilled to vouch for her any day!

We are so grateful to have had Kelly photograph our wedding!

On the day of our wedding, Kelly was very kind and respectful to our family and friends, and made us feel comfortable during photo sessions.  She did a fantastic job capturing all of the special moments, gathering our family for photos, and taking fun and romantic shots of us.  She truly has an eye for good compositions.  When we received our photos after the wedding, we were THRILLED with the product!  Kelly’s shots portrayed our event and guests perfectly and always take you back to being there!  We loved that she catered to our natural and simplistic style.  She brought professionalism and was a joy to work with!  We were also pleased with the preparation process, as she was flexible with scheduling and logistics. She spent time to get to know us and our expectations for our wedding.  The photo gallery was well put together and very easy for us to share with friends and family.  We have already enthusiastically recommended Kelly Giarrocco to our friends, some of whom have already booked her for 2017!

Thanks Kelly!

We were pretty clear that while we wanted to capture our wedding day in photographs, we didn't want the photographer to run the show. Kelly Giarrocco understood this and did a marvelous job. She and her team managed to capture all of the "must have" photos of family and the wedding party without making it feel too dutiful. Honestly, she handled the very tender moments and potentially nerve-wracking points before the ceremony with a soft, yet competent touch. In the end, we are thrilled with the way she captured our day. The formal photos are elegant and the informal shots really show how much fun our guests and we had. She created stunning images that we will treasure forever.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Kelly! She went above and beyond throughout the entire process and was extremely easy to work with. Kelly is a true artist and definitely one of the best wedding photographers I have seen. She gave us a sneak peek of our wedding photos within days of our wedding which I LOVED, and mailed us a USB drive of the rest of our photos (plus a few printed out photos as a gift) within 3 weeks of our wedding! There is even an online gallery for your guests to order pictures from. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with how our wedding photos turned out, they are simply amazing! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and photographer!

My husband and I had an intimate wedding in Philadelphia and chose Kelly as our photographer after seeing her work featured in some local articles. She is truly amazing! Kelly was so sweet to chat with before the big day. When we officially met on the wedding day, I knew she was going to be perfect. We had a timeline, and even though some things got shifted around, she was calm and accommodating. We received our sneak peeks and are already in love with the emotion she was able to capture. We cannot wait to see the rest! Thank you, Kelly for helping make our day as perfect as it was.

Choosing a photographer is hard. When meeting Kelly, the choice was easy! She not only was professional, but she went above and beyond for her clients. She worked with our budget, rather than against it. She also stayed longer than she had to, just to ensure she caught every special moment. Kelly delivered our photos in record time.
Our wedding pictures came out amazing and I am very glad I chose to work with her for my wedding. She loves what she does and really cares about the client, it shows in her work. She also took so many great candid photos of our families and friends. We highly recommend Kelly to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

Kelly was fantastic to work with start to finish! We were drawn to her photography because of its artistry, naturalism, dynamism, and great coloration. During the ceremony and reception, Kelly was a steady hand and expertly captured both posed and candid shots. She is a calm and professional presence, and collaborated beautifully with our other vendors. Truly a wonderful experience working with her and I could not recommend highly enough.
Morgan Ness Married couple on 22 Apr 2023
Kelly was indeed the greatest gift we gave ourselves on our wedding day. From our first email with her, she was responsive, respectful, and kind. Kelly was able to balance the needs of our parents and our wants of ours on the day. She captured moments throughout the day that we will forever have with us throughout life. People are still commenting on how amazing the photos look, and it was indeed all thanks to this amazing photographer. I highly recommend Kelly for your photo needs!!!!!

Photographer Kelly Giarrocco About me

I find inspiration in early 20th century street photographers and have spent the last 13 years fine-tuning my people-watching skills from park benches all over the world.  Being invited into the lives of my clients is the greatest gift, and I’m grateful to have found a career that allows me to be creative, connect with people, and document the highlight reel of our worldly existence: love, family, community, cultural traditions, dinner parties, and letting it all out on the dance floor.  When not photographing weddings, I’m typically getting in touch with my inner-grandma by feeding my loved ones copious amounts of pasta, obsessing over my vegetable garden, or slowly renovating my 1880s Victorian.
