Oregon Wedding Photographer | hooray for same sex marriage!

I’m so happy about the recent overturning of the ban on gay marriage that I’m giving a gorgeous 8×8 album (valued at $800) to the first same sex couple to book their 2014 or 2015 wedding with me. This gorgeous album comes with thick durable
pages and is available in a variety of colors in both linen and leather covers.

For more information or to book, please email me at kel@kelwardphotography.com.

Salem Film Photographer | featured.

I was so excited to see that one of my images had been chosen as a top 10 image by Film Mama for the theme “unexpected.” I captured this unexpected moment between my oldest two boys with my Canon EOS-3 and a roll of t-max 400 film.

Salem Boudoir Photographer | sneak peek from the new studio

Just a little sneak peek from the first boudoir session in my new studio! 
Located in the historic district of downtown Salem, Oregon, the quaint new space 
is full of character and beautiful natural light.

Salem Wedding Photographer | carousel bridal portraits

Can I just say that I love love LOVE doing bridal shoots?
The dresses, the shoes, the fun locations, and most of all the leisurely pace at which we can shoot because we aren’t on a wedding day timeline. If you have been to Salem’s Riverfront Carousel, you may recognize this bride, as she’s an employee there! Jennie is getting married this summer, but wanted to do a fun bridal shoot prior to her big day.
Any reason to wear your dress more than once, right?!
We had a blast shooting this session on 35mm film during the carousel’s closed hours.
