Keely Nichole Photography

Wedding Photography

Honest, genuine moments. If adventure is your thing and if it’s super important to you that you have amazing images of your day - then you’ve come to the right place!

Hello! I am Keely Bartley, a professional portrait and wedding photographer in Kentucky. I am a hopeless romantic, and I appreciate real, messy, honest love. I married my middle school sweetheart in 2019, so I value love and the unique journey that is marriage done well. I believe real moments are priceless ones. My style captures natural and genuine moments; honest emotions while having fun! I always look for those sweet and intimate moments, capturing not just the moment itself but the celebration of what each couple has found in each other.

My perfect day would include sleeping in, walking aimlessly around Target, and eating Shogun while watching a movie with my husband!


"If you’re looking for an amazing wedding photographer with great skills and who is incredibly personable, I urge you to contact Keely! Keely really went above and beyond as our wedding photographer. She was very organized and helped us plan our day perfectly to make everything as smooth as possible. I could go on for days about how amazing the pictures were, but what stood out to me the most was how comfortable Keely made us feel from the planning, to the engagement shoot, and especially on the wedding day. She also helped my husband plan the proposal and captured the moment so magically. I am so thankful to have beautiful photos to look back on forever, and great memories of an amazing day thanks to Keely."

love notes...

"5/5 does not capture the true essence that Keely puts into her work. Less than 24 hours before my wedding our original photographer came down with Covid. I immediately called Keely to see if she was available. Keely reworked her ENTIRE schedule in order to help commemorate our big day. Keely has an INCREDIBLE work ethic and I never once had to question whether or not she was going to forget something along the way. I cannot imagine our wedding day without Keely, not to mention how INCREDIBLE our pictures have turned out!"
