Kelee and Magi originally connected in 2015 through their love of the ocean and surf photography. Kelee began working for BHLDN in social media and marketing, and the two continued to stay in touch. While working at BHLDN, Kelee gained more experience in the photography world and developed her own beautiful and unique style. In 2018, Kelee began freelancing with Magdalena Studios for social media and content development, as well as assisting on editorial shoots. Her photography niche is authentic, natural portraiture.
Kelee's positive attitude, astute eye for aesthetics, and knack for professionalism and accountability make her an integral part of the Magdalena Studios team. Kelee lives in Philadelphia and loves to swim in the ocean and photograph surfers in action. She's an avid traveler, a self-taught photographer, and an active environmentalist – aiming to live consciously inspired by her love for the earth. We are so lucky to have Kelee on the Magdalena Studios team – both behind-the-scenes and behind-the-camera.
"Best in the business. Hands down. Not that I’ve had 1000+ weddings with different photographers to prove this, but Magdalena Studios is the DREAM TEAM. Magi and Team have such big hearts and creative minds that they can interpret your vision and make it reality – regardless of location, props, body type. Honestly, don’t waste your time getting sucked into the rabbit hole of buying the latest trinkets, because the photos that you’ll return to, that you’ll love and treasure forever, are the ones Magi and team capture between you and your spouse (and loved ones). They can find the best spots and angles in a non-ideal place to make it look magical."
"We worked with Kelee who we absolutely love. She’s so amazing at what she does whilst somehow managing to be so kind and fun - it was honestly like hanging with one of our friends! I could go on and on singing the praises of Magdalena Studios, but all I can say is - book them!! You won’t regret it!"
