…and we’re super excited to get to know you. Here’s some stuff we think is really important. 

  • You must stay true to what you feel is YOU. We know the big things in life can get a little overwhelming. If you want to break the mold in a badass way or if you love tradition, we’re all for it. We are your biggest supporters.

  • There is nothing too big or too small. What makes you excited, gets US excited. We’re ready to celebrate right alongside you. Give us the deets!

  • Honesty. We’ll be REAL with you, because that’s how you will get the most out of this experience. We won’t hold back, and we hope you won’t either.

We're not here to half-ass this. This is what we live for. This is what we love.

Meet Katie Anello

Growing up I always knew I wanted to be in the creative industry. I was art obsessed before I could fully form sentences, and once I saved up my first ever few hundred dollars for a point and shoot camera and I began to explore my creativity through the photography I felt that I had found my niche. Following graduation with a BA in Fine Arts & Art History I immediately found myself in the wedding industry working as a second photographer. After a couple years of I then began acting as the Studio Manager for a local wedding photography studio. Soon enough I knew it was time fully grasp my potential and break out; I took that leap of faith and worked with the best business partner ever to develop and launch this little baby of ours called Romanello Studios. For me, there is nothing more rewarding than being able to connect with people on a very real human level through photography and emotion-filled moments. To create work that will be cherished and loved for generations is humbling and the greatest honor an artist can have.

My work has been published in The New York Times, The Annie Selke Companies, The Washington Post, Sweet Paul Magazine, T-Magazine Online, and Alex and Ani.

Meet Kelsey Roman

As I rack my brain thinking of how to introduce myself here, I can’t seem to get past the fact that I can’t remember the introduction of photography in my life. I feel like it has always been present at home, work, school, and in society. My love for photography has been one of those slow burns, where it just keeps getting hotter, better, and more enjoyable as time passes.

For the past 10 years I have taught photography, both digital and darkroom. I’ve shared my technical knowledge, traveled the world, and photographed for myself. However, it wasn’t until a couple of years ago when Katie (my partner over there) was like “hey, wanna shoot some weddings with me?” that I was able to experience what photographing for other people feels like. What I’ve learned is that teaching photography is my day job; taking photos for others, capturing their joy, excitement, nervousness, sadness, and connection to one another, that is my passion.
