Cheyenna Houston Coonskin Park Engagement Session 1

Cheyenne + Houston | Coonskin Park Engagement Session

October will be full of beautiful leaves changing, pumpkin everything, and a stunning bride wearing a beautiful gown getting married.  Cheyenne & Houston are going to be absolutely stunning on their wedding day.  They proved just how photogenic they are during their Coonskin Park engagement session.  We ventured a bit into the woods to create engagement photos that would compliment their wedding and had fun people watching, humming songs to one another (well they did... I did not hum) and getting to know one another.

Allison + Chilton Charleston WV wedding Beni Kedem

Allison + Chilton | A Wedding Story | Beni Kedem Charleston WV Wedding

It's not every day you get to capture the wedding of a friend you've known since your early days of elementary school, however Allison & Chilton's wedding was one of those days!  I have known Allison since we were small children.  We played basketball together, went to the same elementary, junior high and high school and basically know 90% of the same people.  It's a small world where we live y'all! The wedding was held at the Beni Kedem Temple in downtown Charleston, WV on one of the hottest June days I can recall.  Allison wanted formal photos outside so...

Chasity + Garrett | A Wedding Story | WV Wedding Photographer

There is something so charming about getting married in the middle of the West Virginia mountains.  Chasity & Garrett were married at Camp Sheppard in Gandeeville, WV.  Their wedding was full of the most charming details from cowboy boots, stunning lace and wood accents.  Originally the plan was for them to get married outside but Mother Nature had other plans.  The ceremony was moved inside at the last-minute. We were able to take this beautiful couple outside to capture their formal photographs.  They made our jobs so easy.  Laughing, smiling and enjoying their day together despite the rain that kept...

The Results are In… 2017 Shoot & Share Contest

When I started my journey into photography in 2009 (as a hobbyist) I never dreamt I would be where I am today.  I also never dreamt I would have the confidence to enter a contest!  This year with the urging of my close friends, Andrea Martin and Autumn Branscome, I entered the Shoot & Share contest.  I had no idea what to expect when entering.  It was my first contest ever!  My goal was to hit the top 30% with one image out of the fifty I entered. (Spoiler alert: I hit the goal!!!!) Over 332,768 photos were entered in this year's...

Rebecca + Ryan | A Charleston WV Wedding Story

Rebecca & Ryan dreamt of a snowy January wedding.  During our bridal consultation she told me their dream involved a couple of inches of snow to create beautiful photographs.  I'm not going to lie, I was a bit skeptical.  Right around this time last year we had a giant snow storm. The week of the wedding Rebecca & I obsessively text one another planning what we would do if it snowed, rained or was sunny.  Mid-week it was apparently to us that a little bit of rain would occur.  We were armed with  a game plan going into their day. Upon arriving...

Ashlee + Wes | A Traditional Wedding with Lots of Luck | Elkview WV

They say rain on your wedding day is lucky.  If that belief is true then Ashlee & Wes are going to have a life full of luck.  Getting married in October is always a little risky especially in Elkview WV.  Weather can range from a sunny 75 to rainy and 50.  On October 8th the weather leaned towards non-stop rain.  With the help of Alison from Alison Adkins Photography  we rolled with the rain... and thankfully we came prepared with an adorable Kate Spade umbrella.  We capitalized on the small area of green space (i.e. yard) we had and utilized the church car port to...

Three Becomes One Charleston WV Engagement Photographer

Three Become One | Charleston WV Engagement Photographer

Welcome back from the holiday season y'all.  I wanted to kick off (most of your) first days back to work with a stunning family's engagement session! I have mentioned before that I adore photographing friends from the past but it rarely happens that I photograph someone that I've known as long as Allison.  It was many years ago and my memory is a bit fuzzy but I believe we met when Allison was in Kindergarten & I was in 1st grade.  We grew up going to the same schools from that point on until I graduated high school.  We played...

Sometimes Life Happens Featured

Sometimes Life Happens | Elkview WV Engagement Photographer

Sometimes life happens.  You cannot control it and it sneaks up on you in a way that you cannot expect.  Ashlee & Wes recently took on renovating a new home.  Most people when they choose to renovate a new home pick one that needs some minor cosmetic damage but not these two.  They picked the "go big or go home!" house.  The home needed basement walls moved, entire rooms gutted and a whole list of things to keep them busy.  We knew that once they started remodeling that scheduling engagement photos would be tricky so we scheduled their session months in...

Charleston WV Engagement Session Puppy Love

First Comes Love, Then Comes Puppy, Next Comes Marriage | Charleston WV Engagement

The day of Rebecca & Ryan's engagement session I was a ball of nerves.  Parking was hectic, equipment was disappearing into the depth of my camera bag, Rebecca had warned me that Ryan isn't a huge fan of photos.  I was on the verge of a mini breakdown when out of nowhere Rebecca made me laugh. We were casually chatting about their adorable puppy and how I am unsure on what type of dog we should get our family.   Out of nowhere Rebecca informed me that she didn't care for small dogs.  Confused I looked from her & Ryan to their itty bitty tiny...

Gervasi Vineyard Wedding Canton OH

Krystal + Levi | Gervasi Vineyard Wedding – Canton, OH

When Krystal contacted me about photographing her Gervasi Vineyard Wedding in Canton, OH to Levi I was shocked. I have known Krystal my entire life.  Our mother's are first cousins which, I believe if my cousin math is correct, makes us second cousins.  I always get confused on whether its second cousins or first cousins once removed.  It would be so much easier if they hadn't added in all those weird removals of cousins... Growing up we were close despite living four hours from one another but like most cousins as years go on we grew apart.  Krystal went to college,...

Year in Review

Year in Review (Thank You for a Fabulous 2015!)

Thank you for a fabulous year! 2015 was a year of change for KBP as you'll see in this year in review blog.  In the past I focused on engagements & weddings but in 2015 I made a change.  I found myself falling in love with photographing children, families & seniors.  I cut back on weddings and focused more on portraits in 2015.  I am happy to say I'm thrilled with the results!  In fact I am so happy with the results that in 2016 I'll be taking on limited weddings (only 5!) and photographing lots of stunning portrait sessions....

Anna + Josh | A Fall Church Wedding | Charleston, WV

Things don't always work out as planned especially when weddings are concerned.  I was not supposed to shoot a wedding in October.  Life was just too busy with birthdays, family members leaving to travel, etc... for me to take on a wedding.  I wanted to stay sane this fall, then Anna contacted me.  Josh & she had gotten engaged this summer and were desperate to find a wedding photographer they loved.  I agreed to shoot their wedding; realizing that I would need a distraction from all the craziness of my personal life.  Yes, weddings are a nice distraction from the real world...

Sara + Jonathan | University of Charleston Wedding | Charleston, WV | Weddings by A+K

This year Autumn & I have been blessed with the most amazingly laid back brides.  When Sara text me 1/2 hour before we were set to arrive to start photographing her wedding telling me she was heading back to the salon because her hair needed emergency repairs I was frantic for her.  Sara stayed cool as a cucumber.  We adjusted her schedule to make up for her hair mishap and the rest of the day was perfect! Sara & Jonathan were married at the University of Charleston in the Art Gallery, swapped gifts outside on the stunning patio & danced the...

Anna + Josh | Charleston WV Engagement

Anna contacted me slightly frantic a few weeks ago.  Her fiancée, Josh, had proposed this summer and they were getting married in October of THIS year.  Fate sometimes works in mysterious ways and in this case it intervened.  I had not booked a wedding in October because of obligations in my personal life.  At the same time Anna contacted me I found out the events in my personal life would be wrapped up before her big day.  It was as though God knew we needed each other.  He works in mysterious ways sometimes... Since she booked so late Anna wasn't expecting me...

Batman, GoT & Sunflowers… These Are a Few of Their Favorite Things: Katie + Aaron | WV Wedding Photographer

As photographers Autumn & I hope, wish & dream for laid back brides.  Thankfully we usually get exactly what we wish for and this time... we hit the jackpot!  Katie was perfection as a bride.  She was laid back, fun and allowed us to devote plenty of time to capturing stunning images of Aaron & her.  When the preacher forgot to tell let them kiss during the ceremony she stayed cool as a cucumber, grabbed a quick peck from her husband and laughed all the way down the aisle. Venue: Nesselrod on the New River Photography: Kelly Broyles Photography & Autumn Branscome Photography Music: Take...

Cattle, Rain & a Wedding: Jennifer + Patrick | WV Wedding Photographer | Weddings by A+K

It has truly been the year of wedding adventures for Autumn Branscome & myself!  Jennifer & Patrick's wedding day did not disappoint as the adventure began before we arrived at Jen's parents house.  If you've ever been to West Virginia you know that we have limited major interstates that run through our state and it just so happened that the one we needed to reach our destination was shut down due to a cattle truck wreck.  The truck had wrecked and the cattle had gotten loose on the interstate which shut down the entire interstate both west and east bound!  I...

Sara + Jonathan’s Firehouse Engagement Session | Ripley WV Engagement Photographer

Every once in a while as a photographer you get lucky and your client's have amazing jobs that provide access to unique locations.  Sara & Jonathan both save lives for a living.  Sara is a flight nurse and Jonathan is a firefighter.  When we were planning their session Sara insisted that we shoot in the firehouse and thank goodness she did!  The lighting inside was stunning and we had so much fun!  My goal now is to talk them into bringing a firetruck to their wedding in August!     Kelly Broyles is a WV Engagement Photographer located in Elkview, WV.
