My name is Kaely Pillars and I am a wedding photographer because it is the best job on earth.
I love photographing weddings because they make me feel something, truly feel; the pure joy, the love and excitement that you feel on your wedding day seeps into my soul and makes every aspect of my career worthwhile. My all time favorite quote is from the movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty; “To find each other and to feel, that is the purpose of life.” Photographing your wedding gives my life purpose, it reminds me every Saturday that love is the most important thing in this world, that it’s real; what other job does that?
The way you will feel on your wedding day is truly a one of a kind feeling, you can’t replicate it. You can bring the memory of it with you as the years go by, but you can’t go back and relive that day. My goal is to create images of you on your wedding day that will bring all of those feelings rushing back to you. My hope is to make you laugh and to make you cry when you look at your wedding photos. My hope is that years down the road you’ll look at your wedding album and remember all of the reasons that made you fall in love in the first place. My hope is that your children and their children will look at the photos of you on your wedding day and aspire to find a love like yours. Photography is a powerful thing, it can do so much.
I can honestly say that if I won the lottery tomorrow, I wouldn’t change my career. I am thankful for my past, current, and future wedding couples who put their trust in me to document their story. I have a passion for what I do, and thanks to all of you, it will never stop growing.
