"I highly recommend Kelly Funk Photography! His level of professionalism, timely turnaround and amazing images always exceed my expectations. He has a natural ability to capture a scene - whether that is choosing a landscape background to compliment the model featuring our yoga leggings; or photographing me as the face of my brand; or perfectly capturing a model's expression in a way that compliments the pair of yoga leggings she is wearing. I absolutely recommend Kelly Funk if you are looking to capture that 'perfect' image!"

"Seriously the most professional photographer I've had the pleasure of working with. Kelly's creative and strategic approach to photography speaks for itself - we know this. But the level of familiarity he practices with his art - in addition to his gear, location and subjects - is one I admire deeply and learn from at every turn. His clients are always given the highest quality visuals, and come back for more without fail. Above skill and work ethic, Kelly is simply the nicest human being. Every step of the process is a fun, exciting experience for everyone in attendance because Kelly ensures it is. I can't wait for the next project we get to work together on!"

He is an absolute professional- delivering a product that has served our needs time and time again. Our projects have included everything from head shots for the teachers and staff at my yoga studio to shoots of classes, the facility, and even team building events where we captured teachers in poses in natural settings. He's wonderful to work with!"
