Hi, I'm Kellie.

Kellie is my first name.  Viagem /Vee‧yah‧gem/ is not my last name.  I'm a photographer + geographer based in Southern California, USA.  

I cross the natural world with a timeless photography style in order to capture authenticity and love in its most natural forms. 

So wait, what does that actually mean? It means I think you're pretty great how you already are, so I want your photos to show it!  By creating real bonds with my couples, I showcase honest human beauty, natural places, and pure moments.

San Diego County is my home base, but I look forward to adventures all over the world at any time. Contact me for your local OR destination wedding.  I speak fluent English, Portuguese (no, I'm not Brazilian), and some Spanish (yes, I'm kind of bad at it) if that makes any difference.

Absolutely fantastic. Kellie is very organized, thorough, and professional. I had never taken official pictures before and Kellie made it all so easy. She knew the small detail shots to get and had me posing every which way to get the perfect shot. At the wedding itself she captured so many amazing candid pictures. 10/10 would recommend her for a wedding

Kellie seriously brakes the awesomeness scale in comparison to other photographers. When my husband and I first met her for our engagement shoot, she was immediately kind and welcoming. Both of us are totally shy in front of the camera and we had no clue what to do but she made the entire shoot so much fun! Not only did we have a blast getting to know her but our pictures turned out completely stunning. She truly knows how to capture the authenticity of every moment while doing her absolute best to make sure everyone feels comfortable. Fast forwarding to our wedding day, Kellie was so kind, patient, and excited to get every shot she could regardless of it being in the middle of the day with scorching heat! She truly went above and beyond to take care of everybody and even encouraged them to drink water so they weren’t overheated. Lastly, I wanted a photographer who truly captured the sweet, raw feelings of the day without it feeling too posed or cheesy. Kellie’s work is truly incredible as she even managed to get many sweet candid moments when I didn’t even know she was there! There’s so much more I can say about Kellie but if you are looking for an incredibly kind photographer, who is more than willing to go above and beyond in every single aspect to capture every beautiful moment of your special day then you’ve come to the right place!

Kellie is truly the most thoughtful photographer. She knew all the right questions to ask to make us comfortable! She also made having our pictures taken a lot of fun. My “now husband” struggles with any type of PDA and Kellie was able to make sure he felt comfortable and went above and beyond what we expected. Our families combined are very large and she was able to capture beautiful pictures of everyone. She is completely organized and know what she is doing for sure. She will be our forever family photographer!

Where do I begin! I have so many wonderful things to say about Kellie. I found her on Instagram when I was looking tirelessly to find someone for some rushed engagement photos! I wanted to have a shot with my car that I was selling and Kellie made sure to fit us in right away and accommodate my crazy car shoot request! As a blogger who has worked with multiple photographers, I thought Kellie was so incredibly thoughtful, having my fiancé and I do a Skype interview ahead of time to make sure she got a sense of our relationship and what we wanted. She also had us fill out a little his and her questionnaire too so that she got all the good angles! Her attitude made us both feel comfortable and she did a great job of wrangling our little french bulldog into some supper cute shots! On top of all that, she was incredibly well priced considering how expensive any type of wedding photography can be in Los Angeles! She also rushed our prints for a small fee so I had them quicker and made sure we looked great. I loved her attitude, professionalism and work so much, would most certainly recommend to anyone!

I’m so happy that we chose Kellie as our wedding photographer! She is so personable and kind, and really cares about capturing the moments from your big day. She took a lot of time and care to figure out exactly what we were hoping for, to ask for our opinions, and figure out what was most important to us. Her style is beautiful and she has a gift for composition. Do not hesitate to hire Kellie — you will not regret choosing her as your photographer! :-)

Kellie is a stellar photographer; professional, fun, and above all, talented. The moments she captured on my wedding day are beautiful memories we can now share for a lifetime. Obrigada, guria!
