But you may be thinking, now what? What do we do on our Elopement day?


When it comes to eloping, anywhere in the world, I HIGHLY recommend adding some fun activities you enjoy, or some you would like to do but have never done, to your day!! I suggest picking 1-4 depending on the length of your trip to the location and the length of photography coverage you want. ;)

"Don't think about it, just BOOK HER! She's WORTH every penny and more!"

“If you are looking for a photographer, Kelly is YOUR girl!.”

jessica & jordan

"She is highly experienced and takes the most beautiful photos you could imagine. In addition she’s the most fun & personable photographer you could ever meet. Like anything, you get what you pay for so choosing a less expensive photographer may save you money but you sacrifice on quality and for your most special day you want pictures that you will love forever. You can’t go wrong with Kelly and will not be disappointed! Best photographer in Calgary!"

“There is literally nobody better than Kelly Szott, we are so happy that we chose her!"

suzanne & chad

"We hired her for our engagement photos and wedding day. She is super fun and easy to work with. We spent most of our time laughing and she captured some amazing shots! I am so glad we went with her. You won't be disappointed! 10/10"

“Kelly Szott is an amazing photographer!!"

kristin & kent

"Our pre-wedding meeting to discuss our ideas for the wedding was great. She was very open to hearing about what we wanted and talked about how to achieve that. She was also very responsive in all her communications leading up to the wedding.
The day of the wedding she was very professional and did a great job at getting my family to enjoy taking the photos. She was very efficient and did not rush us through any of our photos and the different locations.
Her photos perfectly captured our wedding day and they are beautiful memories we will have for a long time! Thank you, Kelly!"
