Hello, I'm Kelly Vasami. Since 2006, I've been the owner and primary photographer here at Kelly Vasami Photography. I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Westchester County New York.
I specialize in family portraits, newborn photos, corporate headshots, event photography, engagement portraits, and intimate wedding photography.
After 15 wonderful years as a wedding photographer, I made the decision to focus on small intimate weddings going forward. I cherish (and remember!) every single one of the hundreds of large wedding celebrations I have had the pleasure of capturing over the years, and I look forward to continuing to record the memories of more couples in the future.
If you are planning an intimate wedding celebration (50-75 guests max, under 6 hours), please get in touch with me, I would love to chat further about how we can work together. If you are planning a larger, more traditional celebration (8+ hours, full bridal party, ballroom type reception, etc), feel free to reach out to me, as I would be happy to refer you to one of my wonderful colleagues who could do an amazing job for your wedding.
I look forward to meeting you and learning more about you and your fiance! Your wedding is one of the most beautiful and memorable days of your life, and the photographer you choose is one of the most important decisions you will make in the wedding planning process. I'm truly honored that you are considering choosing Kelly Vasami Photography to photograph your intimate wedding, and I genuinely look forward to getting to know you.
I love to photograph weddings because of the amazing moments that I am able to capture for my clients. The laughter, the tears, the joy, and even the bittersweet moments that unfold on a wedding day are what truly stand out to me when I am behind the camera. I also love to focus on the tiny details of the day - those small touches that you have spent so much time and energy in putting into your wedding to make everything picture-perfect. Those unique wedding cufflinks you hunted for on Etsy, the fantastic sky-high heels you saw in the display window on 5th Avenue and just HAD TO HAVE, the unbelievable dress you spent weeks picking out with your mom and your bridesmaids and then just knew it was the one. I capture those unforgettable candid moments and those beautiful details with my unique and creative eye, and present everything to you in the most beautiful heirloom wedding album you've ever laid eyes on.
Many of the weddings I photograph take place in Westchester County NY, but I also photograph weddings in Manhattan, Connecticut, New Jersey, The Bronx, Long Island, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington DC, Rhode Island, and beyond.
I have been photographing weddings since 2006 and I have loved every minute of it. My photography has been seen in The New York Times, Style Me Pretty, CNN.com, HuffPost, and on ABC TV's Extreme Home Makeover. The weddings I have photographed for my couples have graced the pages of New York magazine's Wedding issue, Manhattan Bride magazine, and The Westchester Wedding Planner magazine. My clients weddings have been named Wedding of The Month by Westchester Magazine, as well as been featured on Wedding Window/WedLoft blog and The Westchester Wedding Planner blog.
I've been lucky enough to work with some of the most amazing couples along the way, and their kind words have helped me to win The Knot's Best of Weddings award six times, The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame Award, and Wedding Wire's Couple's Choice Award six times [formerly called The Bride's Choice Award]. But more importantly, the relationships I build with my couples are the cornerstone of my business, and I am delighted when my wedding couples refer me to their friends and family, or hire me again years later to photograph their children. I've been told that the people I photograph all look so happy in the photos, and I know that is because they are genuinely enjoying the moments we create together.
About me personally? Well, I'm a mom to two crazy fun kids and a sweet old dog, all of whom I adore coming home to at the end of a wedding day. On weekends when I'm not photographing beautiful couples in gorgeous locations, I can be found cheering on my athletic son as he plays baseball and football, creating works of art with my creative daughter, or cruising around town in my little old convertible. I'm addicted to Starbucks, I love practicing vinyasa yoga, eating Mexican food, and listening to any type of music that makes you want to dance. I have a sweet spot for anything vintage (sports cars, old houses, antique cameras). And finally, I think nothing is better than spending time with good friends and laughing until your belly aches!
I can't wait to get to know YOU as a couple — to find out what is important to you both, and also what makes you smile. That deep connection I seek to find in each of my clients shows naturally in the photographs I make. I look forward to capturing the real moments and amazing details of your wedding day by utilizing my artistic eye, my professional equipment, and my years of training. I can't wait to create the most amazing collection of wedding images you've ever seen, while genuinely having FUN with you in the process.
I would love you to meet up with you to see if we click, have you take a look at some of my sample wedding albums in person, and discuss your vision for your wedding day. Let's get started!
