ABOUT

Originally a commercial and editorial photographer, weddings have become my recent passion. I love the combination of still life, details, food, architecture, fashion, portraits and photojournalism. My goal is to be unobtrusive on your day but still get the shots to tell your story. I take a limited number of weddings per year, the reason is simple, I want to take care of my clients and offer a more custom experience. Many photographers book 2 and 3 weddings per weekend, I prefer to stay at the top of my game and limit that number.  
Based in Wilmington, DE and Philadelphia areas, I also call Wyoming my home  (please inquire about dates).   I love to travel so if you are planning a destination wedding,  I'm more than happy to provide you with a custom quote.

INFO

GET IN TOUCH

Headshots are so important today with social media. It is the first line of information about who you are, what you want to portray about yourself and/or your company. Part of the process for recommending what type of headshots you need is for us to talk about your goals, look and understand your particular corporate culture or what you are trying to present yourself as in the business world. I work with makeup and hair people along with stylists who can help guide you into a great new or updated look. 
Location and studio backdrops are available. I'm also available to set up at your office.  
Individual headshots at my studio are $199. Group discounts are available as well as location options.

KIND WORDS

ABSOLUTELY
AMAZING

Kelli is absolutely amazing. My husband and I got married this past September in Wilmington, DE. We had been working with Kelli for a little over a year for engagement photos as well as for the wedding. Our engagement photos turned out wonderfully. Kelli was even able to get my husband to smile naturally which is a tough task :) Kelli was so calm during the wedding and did an amazing job getting everyone comfortable to take photos. She rounded everyone up very quickly and ensured she was able to capture all of the photos she knew we wanted! We are SO impressed by how all of the photos turned out! The turnaround time to receive the photos was so quick and they were everything we could have wanted and more! We are so excited to use Kelli for all of our future photography needs. HIGHLY recommend her!- Alicia & Tommy

ACTUALLY 
LISTENS

Kelli Wilke was not only our photographer for our wedding but became our friend throughout the process as well. She has a niche to make you feel comfortable and confident in such a time when emotions are heightened. We encourage you to meet, discuss and get to know her for yourself! Without a doubt, you will know moments after meeting with her that you have found your photographer for your very special day! She actually listens to you and is there to chat about what YOUR vision is, it's rare to find now-a-days! With all our love we send our biggest recommendation to use Kelli Wilke Photography! - The Ackers

Amazing Photographer!

As soon as we met Kelli, I knew I wanted her to photograph our wedding. Her demeanor is totally calm and easy going, and I got a really great feeling from speaking with her. I decided I wanted that kind of vibe on my big day so my fiance and I (and everyone in our wedding party) would feel totally at ease when she was around. Kelli does not disappoint! We had our engagement shoot with her recently and she was fantastic. My fiance and I are not great at taking photos together and usually he can't muster up a normal looking smile, but Kelli totally found a way to put us in the right frame of mind and get us into a real comfort zone for our pictures. AND he smiled! We absolutely love the photographs and can't wait to see how amazing they are on our wedding day. I highly recommend Kelli! If you want to work with a wonderful person and an amazing photographer, she is the woman to see!

THRILLED!

Kelli Wilke is the BEST! From the very beginning of wedding planning, Kelli had been my favorite person to work with! She was so quick to respond to all of my emails and so easy to work with! Kelli suggested to do a small shoot as a way to get to know each other and it ended up being such a fun day and our pictures were amazing! Kelli makes taking pictures so fun and enjoyable that even my husband who hates taking pictures actually really enjoyed our engagement session! On our wedding day, Kelli and her assistant did an amazing job capturing every second of the day! During our church ceremony, you didn't even know Kelli was there snapping pictures because she did such a great job of blending in. Kelli was so patient with all of my crazy loud friends and was able to get all of us together to take absolutely beautiful pictures! All of my friends and family were blown away by our engagement and wedding pictures! They all agreed that the pictures were some of the greatest wedding pictures they have ever seen! When I woke up the day after my wedding, Kelli already had sent me a sneak peak of pictures from our wedding! It has been 3 months since my wedding and Kelli is still patiently working with me on my photo album and answering my emails! I HIGHLY recommend KellI!! She is the BEST!!!!

THANK YOU

We loved working with Kelli, she was incredibly flexible and easy to work with. She was very low key but seemed to be everywhere at out wedding. We are thrilled with the results.

simply amazing

She was a joy to work with throughout the whole wedding planning process, and was the most responsive of all of my wedding vendors. When we got our engagement pictures not even 24 hours after our engagement session was over, we were shocked, and amazed by the quality of Kelli's work! We were even more thrilled by our wedding pictures - the quality of the images, the incredible selection we have to choose from, and we got them less than 2 weeks after our wedding! The day of the wedding, she arrived early to check in with me and get everything setup, and kept the entire day organized and running smoothly. She got every single shot I requested, and so much more! I 100% recommend Kelli as a photographer for ANY event.

Exceeded our expectations

My pictures are so beautiful I can’t stop looking at them! Kelli did an AMAZING job shooting our special day! She was thoughtful, professional and creative. And a pleasure to work with! Kelli was always available to answer my questions and listened to my thoughts and ideas when it came to creating my wedding album (it is absolutely beautiful! a true keepsake!) I would recommend Kelli Wilke Photography to anyone looking for a stress free photography experience!

Captured beautifully

Kelli is an amazing photographer! She's professional, yet down to earth and great to work with. Every detail of my big day was captured beautifully. She has an excellent eye and even her assistant produced excellent shots from a different prospective. I highly recommend her for your wedding day. You won't be disappointed.

highly recommend

Our engagement pictures turned out beautifully and we can't wait to see how everything else turns out. Kelli is so sweet and easy to work with. She is quick to respond to any of our questions and has gone above and beyond for us. I highly recommend her!

Very Creative

Booking Kelli Wilke as our photographer was hands down the best decision we made during our wedding planning. We did our fair share of research on photographers and looked around quite a bit, but I'm telling you, you need not look any further. Kelli is a true class act, very professional and down to earth all at the same time. She is very easy to communicate with, welcomes any and all questions you may have along the way and is always very prompt with her responses. She helped us plan out a thorough timeline for our day to ensure that we weren't rushed and had the opportunity to get all of the photos that we had envisioned. She is very creative with her photography and captured our day in the most beautiful way. We could not be happier with our wedding photos and would highly recommend Kelli Wilke Photography to anyone!

Skilled
Photographer

Kelli Wilke is a very talented and skilled professional photographer. I highly recommend Kelli if you want your special day documented with taste and attention to every detail of your event. We have Kelli a challenge of shooting our wedding And our reception (Halloween theme). She exceeded our expectations. Thank you , Kelli!

A joy to 
work with

Kelli was my wedding photographer for my wedding at the Rockwood Park Carriage House on 9/18/16. She was simply amazing. She was a joy to work with throughout the whole wedding planning process, and was the most responsive of all of my wedding vendors. When we got our engagement pictures not even 24 hours after our engagement session was over, we were shocked, and amazed by the quality of Kelli's work! We were even more thrilled by our wedding pictures - the quality of the images, the incredible selection we have to choose from, and we got them less than 2 weeks after our wedding!
