Kelly and I? or Me and Kelly?

when I say-Kelly and I went to the movies should I say Me and Kelly or Kelly and I?

In this case you would need to say 'I' because you are the subject.

I went to the movies. Kelly and I went to the movies.

If you had a photo of Kelly and yourself you would write a caption saying "Kelly and Me".

Here the photo is the subject and it is a photo of you both. You would say this was a photo of me in Italy. This was a photo of me and Kelly in Italy.

This is a very common misunderstanding and I'm going to dedicate a newsletter to this topic.
