"From booking all the way to the wedding and all of the conversations in between Kathleen was incredible! She is so responsive with communications which is huge when juggling a million things while planning a wedding. We never had the pleasure of meeting Kathleen prior to our wedding day, but even so, she made us feel so comfortable and at ease, like we were old friends. Never once did we feel "staged" or set up. Kathleen would find an amazing location, and then somehow, with her quiet, sweet photo magic, make us feel like it was just the two of us and we weren't in front of a camera. Our wedding day came along with some hiccups and stressful moments, but Kathleen was always there, so kind and calm, to bring us back to the moment and remind us of why we were there, to celebrate. Booking Kathleen was one of the best decision we made for our wedding and I can't thank her enough for making our day one we will never forget..."

"Kathleen is the absolute best. Yes, she captured the most gloriously stunning photos, and she documented moments that were raw, meaningful, lovely, and real. And we will treasure our photos truly forever. But the reasons we adore her are mostly how steady, calm, and thoughtful she was from the moment we met to the day of the wedding and all the days since. That has been such a gift. Plus, she's just a delightful human being. We couldn't have asked for more."

"What a GEM. Not only are Kathleen's photos beautiful, she was such a delight to be around all day. Her presence is calming and she's got a GREAT sense of humor. We felt so grateful that she was there with us to document everything. Okay. The photos: Kathleen totally captured the day. Looking through her photos from that day, we were completely able to relive everything. The traditional portraits were great, but what meant so much to us were all the candids she got of us, our family, and our friends. It's not often you're in a room of 200 people you love and the joy on everyone's faces really shines through. As art, these photos totally stand on their own. Weddings aren't boring so your photos shouldn't be either! We were blown away by Kathleen's work. From her portfolio it's clear she's super talented - our photos were above and beyond what we had expected. Do not pass Kathleen up. She is great in every way!"

"Kathleen is a remarkable photographer and artist. You simply have to trust that you are booking a photographer who is completely extraordinary. She captures moments you didn't even know were happening. When you look through your wedding photos (and there are hundreds to look through), you will get to relive the most beautiful and joyous moments of this incredible day. She is organized, perceptive and so easy to work with. You plan each detail with her ahead of time, and she creates a photography timeline for portraits. Then you just leave the rest to her. I don't know how she was able to capture so many details, especially of our ceremony. It was as if there were three of her, because she didn't miss a thing. Her style is romantic and warm, like looking at stills from a movie, rather than posed wedding pictures. Also, she knows how to work with all of your family members and friends, and knows how get the best pictures out of each of them, and how to make use of the time well. I can't say enough good things about her. Do not hesitate to book her."

"Kathleen photographed our September wedding, and she was a total dream to work with from start to finish. We wanted something more candid and creative for our photos, and my friend recommended we check out her stuff. It was love at first Instagram perusal. She has an incredible, cinematic eye, and an ability to capture real moments unlike any other wedding photographer I've come across. I got in touch via email, and we ended up having the nicest phone conversation - it was like talking to an old friend. I felt instantly at ease, and knew that this was somebody who would "get" us. Leading up to the wedding, Kathleen was completely on top of all her prep - she sent us her questionnaire and additional info in a super timely manner, and was always quick to respond to emails. And at the wedding, she was a boss-- scouting out the coolest hidden photo locations (a magical overturned giant tree stump? yes please), swapping between cameras like lightning, and maintaining that delightful rapport of hers to keep us feeling comfortable. And during the ceremony/reception, I genuinely forgot she was there! She was like a wedding ninja. We've seen a sneak preview of our photos, and it's exactly what we were hoping for - beautiful, creative, and totally us. I can't wait to see the rest! Cannot recommend Kathleen highly enough. One million stars. "

"Working with Kathleen was a dream and choosing her to document our wedding day this June was one of THE best decisions we could have made. Her style is unique, thoughtful and even playful, sometimes giving off a vintage feel. She captures all the family portraits and "the basics" you would look for but nothing about her portfolio is "cookie-cutter" or commercialized. She manages to capture the authentic and unplanned, like when you're sharing a genuine moment with someone or being completely ridiculous/letting loose - these are the moments you will want to remember! She is able to do this because she moves through the crowd like a whisper and you soon forget she is there. While we had never met before our wedding day, I felt so comfortable working with Kathleen because she was there every step of the way helping us plan beforehand. She worked out numerous drafts of our timeline and helped us determine the best schedule for first-looks, sunset portraits, etc so that we got the most coverage possible. And I kid you not, this woman will respond to you with lightning speed and such thoughtful detail on legitimately ANY detail you bring up. After the wedding, she will continue to follow up with you and provide everything as promised and on-time. We splurged and decided to have Kathleen make our flush mount album as well. It was well worth it. The quality of these prints and the thoughtful design work she puts into it make it a piece you will truly cherish forever. I cannot emphasize enough what a joy it was working with Kathleen. She offers the perfect blend of personal support and professional demeanor and the images she delivers will help you relive your wedding day again and again. Thank you Kathleen for all of your amazing work - we are so grateful! "
