“I contacted Kelly from Los Angeles looking to give my parents, who live in Wausau, a family portrait session for their 65th birthday. I did a google search for photographers and reached out to a few. I couldn't be happier we chose Kelly Jacobi Photography. The only time the whole family would be in town was around Christmas--Kelly did our session December 23!! and had some sneak peak images ready on Christmas Day!! Yes she worked the holiday so would have a few shots to look at, knowing we were excited to see them! I think this sums her up: caring, hard working and client focused!!
She did an in-home causal session capturing my parents with their grandchildren perfectly! I can not recommend an in-home session enough--everyone is at ease and it captures you with your life/home where memories are made! Kelly asked what was important in our home and between all of us that we wanted to capture and toured the house looking and listening to what meant something to my parents and our family so it could be included. She did some photos of everyone just having fun and some more formal of the whole group but the entire session was very relaxed and fun. Even with a 1 year old, and a 4 year old who pinched his hand and cried for twenty minutes. She handled it all beautifully! Even got my older brother, who hates having his picture taken to be very natural and real!!
Kelly fit us in during the holidays, took the time to ask what we wanted in our session before the day and on the shoot day, she made everyone relaxed and captured our family love, laughter and closeness!
Her turnaround was as she told us, her pricing very reasonable and most importantly the final products and photos are gorgeous and will be cherished by all of us for generations! Very gifted photographer and an amazing person!” - AP
“I am not sure how to put into words the experience that we had we Kelly. She was first and foremost, incredibly professional but made you feel super comfortable in the moment/setting. She captured the most breathtaking photos that I/we have ever seen and we are thrilled that we were fortunate enough to work with her. She is amazing and would highly recommend her to anyone.” - Katie J
"We hired Kelly for maternity, birth, and newborn shoots. I was a little apprehensive, as my sister-in-law is a professional photographer, and before we moved to WI, we were able to use her for these more intimate shoots with my other children. After meeting with Kelly for a consult, my nerves were calmed, and after the maternity shoot, I knew we made an excellent decision to hire Kelly.
She was FANTASTIC with my 3 yo, who was less than enthusiastic about having photos done. She was also super great with my 5 yo, who was overly enthusiastic about the sessions. During the birth, Kelly was not only professional, but she was kind and comforting, supportive when I needed it (thank you so much!), and I felt totally at ease with her taking photos in the room. Newborn photos were wonderful, as well. She was patient when baby needed breaks, didn't try to contort the baby into a bunch of bendy positions, and from the photos, you couldn't even tell that he was having a fussy afternoon.
Kelly also made slideshows of the shoots, which was something I was indifferent about during the consult. The combination of music and photographs were divine, and the birth session slideshow, in particular, had me in tears (the good kind). I LOVE the slideshows!
Kelly is a master at utilizing natural light, had fantastic rapport with us as well as the kids, her photographs were stunning, she was VERY responsive to emails and text messages, and is overall a lovely human being. I would highly recommend Kelly, especially as a birth photographer, as I strongly feel that her presence made the birth a more positive experience for me. Even my mother (who was also there for the birth) asked me to thank Kelly for being so awesome. I could go on some more, but this review is already a short novel. Suffice to say, I have nothing but good to say about Kelly Jacobi Photography! - Andrea G.
“Kelly!!! They are so BEAUTIFUL!!!! We are over the moon!! I seriously cannot put into words how thankful we are that you were there for us. Thank you! Thank you! You captured the cabin perfectly, our family perfectly, and our day so perfect. Wow. Everything was so authentic!! You are such a talent!” - Zoe & Logan G.
"Some call it taking pictures. With Kelly it's so much more. She captures memories and tells stories. She has a passion that comes through her lens. Kelly has been taking photos of my family for years. She's taken family photos, portraits of my boys, my dogs and boudoir. I have NEVER been disappointed. I've always thought that pictures never tell the whole story or never capture the feeling of the moment the way you want to remember it. Kelly has shown me otherwise! Her photos have become family heirlooms for me and I look forward to capturing many more memories with her in the future!" - Chris Y.
“Kelly is awesome! Super professional, extreme high quality in her work. Great skills to deal with my 4yo son who does not like pictures, but Kelly made him smile all the time. We got so much fun during our session! The moments and essence she captured with her camera were priceless!” - Bridgitte E.
“We are new to the Wausau area and really didn’t know where to start to look for a photographer. We went to google and found Kelly. She met with us to discuss what we hoped to capture and offered to help with outfit selections. She then turned my hopes into reality, with 3 little kids and a forecast of 85 degrees, Kelly was able to work her magic in a short amount of time. This was our favorite photo shoot that truly captured our family. Kelly was amazing with our kids. Can’t wait until our next one.” - Jessica K.
“Kelly was wonderful to work with and so professional and kind! She photographed my son’s birth and her work is amazing! I felt comfortable with her being there during labor and delivery, and she blended right into the atmosphere capturing the priceless moments of his delivery. Forever grateful we had her there to capture such a big milestone for us!” - Emily B.
“We used Kelly for the birth of our son and an in home session. Our photos turned out absolutely amazing! She is great to work with and very personable. She made my husband and I both feel super comfortable. We could not have asked for a better experience!” - Erin H.
