My husband and I recently got married on July 1st, and we had the honor of Kerlyn shooting our wedding. She was beyond amazing! We met with her months before, and up until the big day she kept in contact with us in preparation. My husband and I knew nothing about weddings going into this, and Kerlyn acted a sort of a guide, which was a huge help! On the wedding day she showed up early, for detail shots followed by getting ready photos and so on. Considering our timing of the whole wedding wasn't very well planned, Kerlyn did wonders with what she had to work with, and she was SO patient. Thank god. Nevertheless; our photos came out AMAZING! She will definitely be my go-to photographer here on out!

There aren't enough words to praise Kerlyn's photography work. She was professional, easy to contact and truly exceeded our expectations. She has such a great eye and did such an amazing job capturing our wedding as well as our engagement photos. Her work is very unique and her usage of natural light is incredible. She doesn't shoot cookie cutter/cliche photos and thank goodness for that! Believe me, she won't disappoint you!

Kerlyn was beyond amazing. My Husband and I could not have asked for a better photographer. Photos from our wedding day were one of the most important details that I planned and choosing Kerlyn Van Gelder Photography was definitely the right decision. Our engagement and wedding pictures came out beautifully and I am so thankful to have had her capture this time in our lives in such a special way. Please, please do not hesitate to book with Kerlyn!
