Grand Rapids wedding photographer: Kelly Sweet Photography » Portrait and wedding photographer servicing Grand Rapids, Michigan, Detroit, Chicago and destination wedding locations.


Kelly Sweet Photography copyHello and thanks for stopping by!

I’m Kelly. I live in Michigan and I love spring, summer, fall and sometimes winter.  Some of my favorite things are my family, my cats (yep, I have three), curling up with a blanket and a cup of coffee, the smell of the fresh air through a window on a summer morning, reading a good book in bed, traveling to far away places, and of course, taking photographs of people living life.

I grew up in Michigan and after finishing high school, I didn’t know what I wanted to “be when I grew up”.  What I did know is that I had a strong desire to move to California.  So I did. I started in Los Angeles and then found my home in San Francisco.  Oh, how I love San Francisco. At some point, I got an interest in photography and decided to seriously study every aspect of it, eventually getting my BA in Photojournalism from San Francisco State University.

After ten years of living on the west coast , I decided to move back to Michigan to pursue a career in wedding and lifestyle portrait photography. I’m currently located in Grand Rapids, but am more than happy to travel anywhere in the world to photograph you.

Please check out my work and if my style fits with what you are looking for, I would love to have the opportunity to document your wedding or any other piece of your life!  I’m always up for chatting over coffee or a glass of wine.  Contact me and we’ll make a date!
