Autumn Summer Woodcraft | Handmade American Made Gifts for Men

Westminster, Maryland | Owner |


I was looking for a photographer for large banner pictures, both for my website and social media/marketing channels. I sell wood pens that all have a metallic surface which is extremely difficult to capture. I was able to take some simple pictures, but when it came to the large “staged” pictures, I just couldn’t get it to work. Kelly was able to get the first picture within 15 minutes, and once that was set up, we just flew through the other’s! I was impressed with Kelly’s knowledge about lighting, equipment angles, and setting up the products in a way that look great on a website.

After meeting with Kelly, it only took a few days to edit them and have them back to me, and she was able to provide me with a few versions of each shot.

For any website or ecommerce store, it is totally worth the small investment to have a beautiful picture as the first thing your customers see. I feel that I got much more than I paid for, especially from a commercial standpoint, and I will be coming back to Kelly each time I need stock pictures or portraits for my website.
