Andrea Kelly Photography – Pittsburgh Photograher – Wedding, Maternity, & Newborn photography »

Guess what arrived today…

Agata + Kevin’s albums have arrived and are gorgeous!  I hope that you two are checking the blog.  These will be packaged and sent out to you on Friday or Saturday…I’m out of the office today to go see my accountant. 

Here’s a tiny preview…


The same bookbinder was used as what is for Kristy + Chris, only Agata + Kevin opted for a 10×10 book with a duplicate parent book.  We selected a red from the bridesmaid’s dresses as an accent color.

Shari, based on when I shot Agata and Kevin’s wedding, I would say it was from my 24-70. But, late last year, I got a 100mm macro lens, which is just so sweet for these type of detail photos.

LOVE that ring image! It makes a perfect cover too! You’ll have to tell me what lens you used for that! ;-)

Schedule your “Just For Him” photo shoot

For those of you in the Pittsburgh, PA and Central PA region, I have a few weekend openings for “Just For Him” sessions in April.  Weekend shoots typically carry premium charge, but for the month of April, I am waiving the premium.

If you are in the Las Vegas, NV area sessions are available until April 9th and then starting again in the beginning of May.

Ask me about the opportunity to get your complimentary session when you have three or more friends participate in a “Girl’s Night Out Party”.

Several different session types are available at varying price ranges.  Email me at info @ (remove the spaces) or call to schedule your appointment soon. :)

i live in SW PA! I’m interested in hearing a little about the boudoir photo shoots in April, if you still have openings. What is the approximate cost for these?
thanks so much!

Amber + Jason’s wedding album

“Tis the season…for designing wedding albums.

Amber and Jason got married at the beautiful Marland Mansion located in Ponca City, OK and asked me to fly in to cover their ceremony and celebration.  They asked me to design a classic, clean, and contemporary matted album for them – and therefore, we chose a Queensberry album because of their use of quality materials and workmanship.  Their album will feature a chocolate leather cover with beautiful ivory mats framing each photo.  Here are a few selected layouts:


Normally, my favorite photos of the day contain my couple and showcase their relationship.  But in this case, one of my favorite photos from the day actually doesn’t have Amber or Jason in it at all, but it truly tells a story…it’s one that is right before their ceremony started – rain had been happening on and off during the day – the clouds above the officiant tell this story – as he stepped out before the ceremony started and you can see the storm clouds to the right of the photo and to the left, you see the sky clearing with the sun trying to peek through toward the center.  The rain stopped just long enough to allow Amber and Jason to have the outdoor ceremony they wanted.  To me, it seemed like the universe was truly shining on them that day.

Kristy + Chris – wedding album

Back on May 7, 2005, I had the pleasure of photographing Kristy + Chris’s wedding at The Springwood in Pittsburgh, PA.  They decided that they would love to have an album that showcased the story of their wedding day.  It’s been wonderful having the opportunity to revisit their wedding as I worked on the layouts of their book.  They picked a 12×12 handcrafted book that was created by one of my favorite boutique bookbinders.

Here is a sample of a few layouts:


This album is going to be ready to go out to Kristy + Chris soon.  Another little tidbit about them – several months ago, Kristy left me know that they were expecting…but just found out that they are going to be having twins…a little boy and little girl!  Congratulations!  I’m so happy for the two of you!

Hi there! This is Kristy, half of the Kristy Chris duo. I am so happy to have Andrea in my life. She has become so much more than the amazing photographer at my wedding… she is now a good friend with whom I have shared the last three years, including two years of fertility issues. Friends like her help people like me get through tough times! She is amazing!

Krista’s boudoir photo shoot

Krista is getting married in July and contacted me about a “Just For Him” photo shoot – she wanted to give her fiancé an unexpected gift that’s sure to make him happy…I think she found a gift that he will love!  I’d love to see her fiancé’s face when he opens up his gift.

To Andrea: I know I’ve told you this before, but ‘thank you’ so much! The photos are great and the session was so much fun!
To anyone thinking about booking a session: DO IT! I had such a great time! I’ve never felt as confident or sexy and laughed so much at the same time. And the pictures are exactly what I hoped for. I’m so glad I did it and can’t wait to give the pictures to my fiance in July!

New for 2008

There are some exciting things happening at Andrea Kelly Photography in 2008.  First, of course, is the new blog!  It’s been a bit of a work in progress for a while and I’m happy to finally unveil it.

This year, we will begin offering a few new portrait opportunities as well as great new products, contests, and more – so be on the lookout for those announcements.  So that I don’t feel like I’m just talking to myself, please show some love and post comments.

Kicking off the blog is one of our newest offerings – “Just For Him” photo shoots. These photo shoots are one of the hottest trends out there right now…fresh, fun, and a little sexy.  I love having the opportunity to do these photo shoots because I believe that sometimes as women, we judge ourselves too harshly and forget to celebrate how beautiful we really are in others eyes.  I believe that these photo shoots really help a woman appreciate her beauty. 

 In the next few days, look for some posts with samples from some really gorgeous women – Krista, Amber, and Amanda.

The blog looks great Andrea! I really can’t wait to work with you at our June 28 wedding.
