photographer and filmmaker
Hello, my name is Kelly Curtis
I hold in my hand a photograph of my great-grandmother as a young woman in Leadville, CO, only a handful of years before she died in the Spanish flu pandemic shortly after giving birth of my grandfather. This photo is a family treasure.
Photographs are meant to be marveled over as the family grows. They are meant to be on our walls, in our sock drawers, scattered across the coffee table. Our lives are art and should be treated as such.
Capturing the genuine spirit of the Sierra Nevada mountains and Gold Country has become my life's work. My approach to photography brings together the area's rustic charm with its sweeping elegance to present the couple at the center. My shooting and editing style encapsulates one goal: for my client's images to be beautiful forever, a timeless treasure for generations.
A Decade of Experience
I’ve honed my craft into an art form through years of dedicated experience as a professional photographer in the heart of Amador County. Years of weddings and celebrating these special occasions have fine tuned my ability to capture both visual beauty as well as the authentic emotions shared in these once in a lifetime moments.
MY BUSINESS VALUES
A FAMILY AFFAIR
In 2019 my mom, Elizabeth Curtis, retired as a clinical laboratory scientist and joined me as a wedding photographer. It was one of the best decisions we ever made - to work together. It's a blessing to experience wedding adventures with her. She's a wonderful photographer and the perfect partner.
