“Photography is the story I fail to put into words.” — Destin Sparks
Kelly Ricke is a professional photographer working in the greater Chattanooga area. Her passions center on telling her clients’ stories through her work photographing families, children and infants. Since Kelly spends so much of her time and effort capturing others’ stories, this is hers.
Originally from Minnesota, Ricke moved with her family to the Scenic City several years ago. While she always enjoyed taking pictures growing up in the midwest, Kelly discovered her love for and talent in photography after having her first child, her son.
When Kelly was pregnant with her second child, her daughter, she realized how expensive even moderately skilled photographers were to hire.
“Like many families today, I dreaded spending so much money on pictures that didn’t adequately capture my family, our story,” said Kelly.
She decided to put her talents to use and soak up everything about the craft.
After investing in education and top-of-the-line equipment over the past few years, Kelly has honed her craft and become a sought-after and talented – but affordable – photographer in Chattanooga and surrounding areas. When you hire Kelly, she will consult with you to better understand your vision and what you want from your photos so that you are truly satisfied. She will also make recommendations and help you prepare for the shoot.
The images Kelly captures are yours; she does not up-sell prints or packages because, as she so passionately believes, she is only there to capture your story – share, print, and post your photographs in whatever way you want to share and enjoy them. Your edited images will be returned to you within two weeks and your satisfaction is guaranteed.
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” — Aaron Siskind
