The first photography assignment Kelly did for us totally accomplished our goal: I want someone to look at this photo and say, “I want to go there”. We have worked with Kelly on a couple of photography assignments and are very pleased with the results. Her images are thoughtful, illustrative and emotional. We look forward to more projects with Kelly.

Magnolia House Bed & Breakfast of Hampton Virginia
In order to take advantage of the cost savings of booking room nights over World Wide Web, we updated the Cedars Bed & Breakfast website. The new design required a series of interior and exterior photos of the home, its rooms and public areas. We wanted to capture on film the warmth and hominess of the Cedars...its quiet elegance and proud colonial heritage.
With this intent in mind, we began meeting with a number of highly recommended local photographers. After interviewing and reviewing their portfolio, it quickly became quite evident that Kelly's work was not only of superior quality but seemed to capture the essence and beauty of her subject matter. We believed we had found the best person for the job and she did not disappoint us.
Since the launching of the new website, we have seen three fold increase in traffic volume and a 15% increase in our room bookings. Every weekend the house is full of guests and a number of them have told us that the decision to stay at The Cedars was based on the photographs that they reviewed on our website. Our success this year is a direct result of Kelly's vision and photographic artistry.
I recommend Kelly Mihalcoe without reservation. If you have any further questions with regard to her background or qualifications, please do not hesitate to call me."

From the moment my husband and I met Kelly Mihalcoe, we were comforted and reassured by her professionalism and gracious manner. We were very impressed with her extensive portfolio, and after our initial meeting, we knew that Kelly would photograph our wedding.
As with most weddings, there was some stress involved! At every juncture Kelly provided me with confidence that all would go well, and gave me total peace of mind about the process. We felt as though we were working with a friend and had complete confidence in Kelly. On our wedding day, Kelly exceeded our expectations!
Throughout the process, Kelly reassured us with her kindness and sense of humor. She went out of her way to accommodate every need and request. We are very thankful to Kelly for the effort and thoughtfulness she put into photographing our special day. We were delighted when we received the beautiful photos so promptly and pleasantly surprised with many wonderful candids. Kelly captured all the special moments throughout the day and added her creative ideas to provide us with spectacular images that we will treasure.

This was our first experience with a professional photographer. Kelly made it easy, relaxing and comfortable! Even my hard to impress husband was very pleased with the photos. We were very, very happy with the entire experience; from the moment we engaged in working together to the final outcome. Kelly captured the essence of the moment and we will have these amazing photos to remember the infancy of our beloved daughter. We hope to work with Kelly Mihalcoe in the years to come as our baby grows and develops.
