Kelly Kruse

I love making people look amazing...

I was born and raised in Northeast Ohio (Ashtabula County, Lake Erie, covered bridges, etc). I graduated from Bowling Green State University (ay ziggy zoomba!) in 2005 with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts. I moved to Cincinnati after graduation and stayed in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area for 15 years. Now returning to Northeast Ohio after being away for 20 years...I am SO HAPPY to be back! The best part of my job is getting to meet new people and bring out their personalities through the art of photography. I love making connections and building relationships; my clients put their trust in me to help them look their best and it's definitely a job I take seriously.

My goal is to capture your best moments and make them amazing for you. 

Not from my area? No worries, I travel, too!

I want my clients to feel confident and comfortable; so let's discuss your ideas and shooting locations. If you don't have any ideas, I can help with that, too!
