Kelly Shroads has been creating art and photographing people, places, and events for over 15 years. Based in Denver, her work has been shown in diverse locales such as Chile, Mexico, Spain, New York, California & Colorado. After getting her BFA, Kelly began her career in wedding and portrait photography, which taught her that truly great photographs can have a profound impact on people's perception & experience of life, the world around them, and the people they care about most. It is Kelly's greatest passion to tell stories through photographs, creating historical records of life's most special and memorable events.
Kelly understands that connecting with people is equally as important as knowing the camera, the light, the setting and the details. She strives to make people feel comfortable in front of the camera by bringing out their inherent joy and confidence. Kelly treats each photo session uniquely, believing that each person, event or circumstance deserves to be represented with originality.
Kelly's work is found more in homes than magazines, though she has been featured in publications such as Mooncruise (Volume 1, Issue 13), Bust, The Knot, Frenzy, Lost at E Minor, Westword, Special Events Magazine, and an itty bitty photo in her favorite, Origin Magazine as well as numerous blogs and online photography communities. From lifestyle photography and corporate events to intimate & personal occasions...landscapes & fine art, Kelly can shoot it all. She would be honored to speak with you about bringing your personal, professional or artistic visions to reality.
