I am so so humbled by these words and feel so incredibly grateful for all my amazing clients. They are truly incredible people and I am so blessed that our paths crossed in this way! My hope with these incredibly kind words, is that if you're a potential client you'll get an idea of what it is like to be in front of my camera whether its an engagement shoot or a full wedding day! Thank you again to these sweet couples who took the time to write these testimonials. I am one lucky girl. xxx

Kate, the "yes!" girl! 

I asked her, would you be willing to travel an hour and a half away? "yes!" Would you be willing to shoot by a lake in the middle of December? "yes!" 

Can you squeeze me in next week before my reception? "yes!" 

Are you going to make me take off my coat now... "YES!"

Kate bent over backwards to make things happen and she over delivered on product. I've never been photographed before with my husband so we both felt a little insecure in gazing into each other's eyes with an audience, but she made us feel so comfortable. We laughed, we joked, and we shivered. All to capture a moment in time that we will cherish forever. The photos turned out better than I could have ever imagined, I am so thankful!

Emma + John

Kate was an absolute JOY to work with from the get go.  From the moment we reached out to her, we were definitely in good hands.  Her bubbly and enthusiastic personality instantly connected my husband and I to her.  For someone who wasn’t up on the wedding lingo, we would try and describe a few things we liked and didn’t and Kate was able to depict our entire vision instantaneously. We were hooked.

We communicated here and there planning times to meet, questionnaires to fill out, or just check in to ask logistical questions.  She was NEVER overbearing with harsh due dates on forms, or booking our engagement shoot.  Kate is incredibly flexible and willing to make what works for you work for her. 

Our engagement shoot….now this is where we finally got to see her magic.  John, my husband and I weren’t certain where we wanted to take these everlasting pictures, but Kate of course had thoughts.  The conservatory.  And boy was she right, it was simply breathtaking.  Taking mushy gushy pictures in front of a complete stranger isn’t weird right?  HA, well, we were defiantly anxious about it at first, then Kate just made us giggle and be ourselves throughout the entirety of the photo shoot.  This made us realize how amazing she is at what she does, and allowed us to truly see her abilities shine. 

Fast-forward a few months, many email exchanges, and check ins here and there, our big day was finally here!  Kate was in communication with our wedding coordinator, but also made time to make connections with John and I thought out the day to let us know she was there for US.  She bonded in person and though her pictures with my Bridesmaids, moms, and grandma in the suite as we got our make-up and hair done. She created a beautiful setting outside with my dress and veil. Took the golf cart over to the groomsmen suite and took some amazing action shots of them together laughing and getting ready, and finally, she made our group shots a time to remember. 

As we got our jitters our, Kate captured John and I as we had our first look, where you can see the anxiety subside as we were finally with each other, while witnessing the tears and hugs of happiness as this day finally arrived. Her work is truly extraordinary.

The rest of the night, she wasn’t anywhere to be found…..any guest would say, but looking at all the unbelievable shots she got, she was everywhere.  Candid, planned, unplanned, tears, joy, love, happiness, she honestly captured it ALL! We were blown away by what we were presented with.  Wish we could do it all over again, oh wait, we can with our pictures!

I would highly recommend Kate to anyone who is looking for a laid back, passionate, can-do/will-do, talented, kind, flexible person to capture the wholeness of your special day, whether it’s your wedding day, engagement/save the date photo shoot, or proposal, she is your gal.

Kate is a talented photographer and an amazing human being! We had never met Kate in person before the day of the wedding (the photographer who shot our engagement photos fell through for the wedding itself), but we knew we were in good hands after our first conversation on the phone. The day of the wedding she spent the entire day with us and captured beautiful moments. She did a wonderful job shooting our wedding and we couldn't be happier with our experience. Kate is warm, kind, and knows how to put a smile on everyone's face, highly recommend!
