which makes her photographs so genuine and natural looking. Kathryn is so accommodating and you can tell she truly cares about each client and their experience from start to finish. She really puts in the extra effort and time, making sure she is completely satisfied with each pose before moving on which I really appreciate.

I would absolutely recommend Kathryn.Not only did we enjoy the shoot, but we are so excited about the final product.

"On the day of the wedding she was incredibly patient, sweet, and calm which helped to keep me calm as well throughout the day. I could tell that she was very experienced as a photographer- she knew which locations in the garden would look perfect for different shots, and she was quick and efficient at directing our poses. She also took lovely candid and posed photos of all my relatives that we really enjoyed seeing. Her editing style kept the photos light, bright, and natural, which was perfect for our garden style ceremony that had lots of warm sunny light and greenery. 

"She knew how to make us laugh which made for some beautiful, natural moments that she captured effortlessly."


"From the moment you meet Kathryn, you'll never remember what is was like before having her in your life. Not only is she the most talented, most professional, most organized photographer ever, she's also the most kind friend to ever enter your life! We've loved working with Kathryn now on 2 engagement shoots and our wedding! She's so comprehensive in everything she sends you, so book early to make your planning days a dream! Anything question you can think to ask she has answers for, and the questions you don't think of, she guides you through! "

"She's so much more than a photographer and she's amazing at all of it!"
