The first time I saw Katie’s work, I knew in that moment I wanted her to capture these memories for me when my special day came. Something about her work speaks to your soul – it’s soft…raw…and organic, so full of love and emotion. Fast forward two years, we both knew it was a perfect match. Katie sincerely cares about her couples and strives to not only meet, but exceed their every hope and dream. And she did just that – from trekking the city on foot during the peak of Virginia summer heat for our engagement session to capturing all the little details you sometimes forget on your wedding day – she made our vision a reality. Katie is more than just a photographer. She feels like a wedding guest that you have known for years, she laughs with you when your dogs aren’t cooperating for their photos ops because she has been there herself, and she’s the one you text when you get a sneak peak of your bouquet the morning of because you know she’ll be just as excited as you are. I am honored to not only have been a ksant bride, but to have also gained a friend for life.
I knew from the moment I met Katie that she had to photograph my wedding. Anyone can look at her portfolio and see her incredible talent as a photographer and her unique ability to capture the raw emotion of a moment. It's her personality and enthusiasm that sets her apart from other photographers. Katie truly cares about each and every client and strives to give them personally tailored photographs they can treasure forever. I could not be happier to have been a ksant bride and can't wait until my first anniversary so I can justify hiring Katie again!
From our first meeting, Katie brought warmth, authenticity, and a sense of humor that made it very clear that she had to be our wedding photographer! The day of our engagement shoot affirmed our decision as Katie was extremely knowledgeable, eased our initial discomfort in front of the camera, and truly partnered with us to ensure we looked looked like the best version of ourselves in our photos.
On our wedding day, we were thrilled to see her! Big hugs all around, nervous laughter, and Katie's, "Don't worry, I've got this" determination helped us to relax not just in front of the camera but throughout the day! She masterfully wrangled our large family and took dozens of posed photos effortlessly and quickly, however, the true magic of Katie was in the moments. Katie seemed to intuit when she'd get a true laugh or smile and picked up on the tiniest details to make our photos so special. When we received our gallery, we were astounded. Katie's artistry shined in every image and truly reflected the spirit of our wedding and the beauty of our relationship.
Katie was one of our favorite vendors to work with!! She is one of the most bubbly, friendly, fun people we have had the opportunity to work with during our year of wedding planning. She has an amazing eye for detail and creates very beautiful photos. She is a true artist- the real deal! We are extremely happy with our engagement photos and we know that our wedding photos will just as great :) We look forward to working with her again in the future.
Working with Katie was the least stressful part of our wedding. She went out of her way to put us at ease and make the process as fun as possible. In addition to being a fantastic photographer, she's also calm, kind, and patient and we loved having her with us at our wedding. She listened to what we wanted (and didn't want) and also brought her own very welcome ideas to both our engagement and wedding photos.We loved Katie so much we even booked a family photo session with her before our wedding day! On the day of our wedding, she worked to get as many photos taken in advance of the ceremony as she could so we were able to get to our reception with only a brief delay for a few additional shots and enjoy the party with our friends and family. It would be tough to imagine working with a better photographer or better person than Katie. Our experience (and our photos) turned out terrifically.
My husband and I got married on April 15, 2017 and we couldn't have asked for a better day. A part of the reason it was so spectacular is because of Katie. She captured EVERY single emotion and moment of our wedding day. She also made us feel comfortable and like it was normal for us to get our photos taken; which is extremely important. At times my husband and I felt like it was just the two of us and like we weren't even getting photographed; we were able to get that lost in the moment.
I always smile when I look back on our wedding photos and they take me right back to the joy of our wedding day, which is what every bride wants looking back on these special photos. I would recommend Katie to anyone who is planning an event! My family, friends, and co-workers have all gawked at my wedding pictures and I can see why! I have no regrets whatsoever picking Katie as my wedding photographer and I would pick her a million more times if I could! Truly amazing
