Kim is a true artist, I've never looked good (or had my eyes open) in a picture a day in my life, and had no hopes that my wedding photos would be any different. Kim was able to capture an amazingly peaceful beautiful side of us. We looked as radiant and happy as we felt. Her stylized photos blew us out of the water, you'll never find anyone more intuitively creative she is truly Picasso with a camera.
After seeing Kim's website my wife and I were really excited to have her shoot our wedding. Her work is unique with an artistic quality rare among the photographers we had considered to that point. It was an intimate affair in Bristol and Kim was attentive and professional. We could not have been happier with our photos!
My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of working with Kim on our wedding day. She was more than professional, warm hearted, and fun to be around. She took the job very seriously and produced some amazing, artistic, and unique shots of us and our families. We were so grateful to have worked with such an easy-going photographer with so much experience.
She was also flexible in the services that she offered. We knew what we wanted and she accommodated us!
Thank you so much, Kim! I am so glad our relationship with you has been so positive and I hope that we get to use your photographic skills sometime again soon.
Kim Praast Photography did an awesome job with my photos. Every one of them was beautiful and captured the moment. Each photo is intricate in detail in its own special way. I highly recommend Kim for your event. She is a wonderful, pleasant, creative person and a great photographer.
Kim was a pleasure to work with. She was very professional. She met with us before the wedding to discuss what we were looking for, and helped us stay within a tight budget.
My husband and I are both artists - so we are picky. We are also both photo shy, and Kim was able to help us feel comfortable and confident. She has excellent composition, provided a range of posed and candid shots, and was sensitive to the relaxed mood we wanted to convey through our entire wedding.
At the event she was everywhere! She captured the feeling of each part of the event, and took a lot of pictures of guests during the reception.
Overall, she was a perfect fit and an excellent photographer. We could not be happier with the images or the experience.
Kim was truly amazing to work with. My photos are beautiful, and I couldn't be happier. She was fun and relaxed and captured all of the important moments- and so discreetly! She had a plan and executed it perfectly. On top of that, she's very responsive. Highly recommend.
Kim came to us as a recommendation from the Dunes Club in Narragansett, RI where we were married and we couldn't be more thankful! From our first encounter via email we could tell she was so friendly, so professional, and knew what she was doing! Throughout our conversations we felt like we were talking to a friend because she was (and is) so attentive and really listened! Kim has an uncanny ability to make you feel so comfortable, and as a result, she takes photos that truly capture the love and energy between the people on the other side of the lens. We couldn't be happier with our experience with Kim and now we have amazing pictures and a new friend!!

Wow! Kim is unbelievably talented! We just received our photos from our wedding and I am blown away by them. Looking through them is like reliving the day all over again. we are getting soo many comments on how gorgeous the pictures are! Kim was AMAZING to work with. She is professional, unobtrusive, and so sweet. She was very accommodating, even with our many location changes we had the day of. She was completely out of the way during the ceremony and reception, but seemed to get EVERY picture I was looking for! In the end, working with her was wonderful and her work is beautiful....I would recommend her to anyone.
My son was married in May 2014, Kim/staff were very easy to work with! They concentrated on what we wanted and requested. They were non intrusive during our event and the results speak for themselves. I would recommend Kim because she will make sure your event is captured beautifully!
My husband and I cannot say enough great things about Kim and her team! I knew after speaking with her and seeing her portfolio, she was the one for our April 2014 wedding at The Towers in Narragansett. She spent time before the wedding working with us to make sure she understood our style and “must have” photos. She was very professional and balanced our families making sure we had the pictures we wanted at the church and reception. More importantly, she was fun, caring and friendly! It felt like having a friend with you taking pictures for the day. She was able to capture the romantic, intimate moments, as well as, our fun, quirky side!
Thank you Kim for making our day that much more special and moments we can look back on forever!
Ray and I couldn't have wanted for anything more in a photographer than what we found in Kim Praast. Kim is a delightful person and a top-notch professional when it comes to her work ethic and the finished product. Our pictures represent the warmth and love that surrounded us on that day, and it's great to have family and friends saying such wonderful things about their impression of Kim even before they got to see her work. Kim is a delight to be around, and her work speaks for itself. Our relationship began when I came across her page and booked an appointment for Ray and I to have our announcement photos taken by Kim. We had a lot of fun and the announcements were beautiful. We knew we could count on her to capture our wedding in a way that would speak volumes about our relationship and our love. We couldn't be happier with what Kim Praast Photography provided for us. We're truly pleased and look forward to continue working with Kim in the future. Our wedding photographs are simply gorgeous and will be cherished for generations. Thank you, Kim Praast Photography!

I couldn't be happier with the photos from our wedding! Kim did an amazing job at an affordable cost. She was professional, but also very easy to get along with. She listened to everything we wanted and took the pictures we requested, but then also took many fantastic pictures with her unique, artistic style. She worked very hard throughout our wedding to accumulate hundreds of pictures. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
When I got engaged I searched for a wedding photographer for weeks, maybe months. The photography is the one thing you walk away with so I knew it was a big decision. Website after website started to all look the same, and then I came across Kim Praast Photography! The pictures on her site were definitely different than what I had seen on other sites- more intimate, creative. I was so excited she had my date open! Her rates were definitely fair for the type of work she does. Our pictures were amazing. She caught moments that I would have completely missed if she weren't there to catch it. And then there were my portraits! All of the ones with my wedding party were so much fun! They had a real candid feel, not too posed. Same thing with the pictures of me and my husband- we didn't want super posed pictures. We wanted to look like ourselves (we hate having our picture taken) and have natural looking portraits. Kim was incredible! We look like we just popped out of a magazine! To top it off, Kim is so easy to work with and really makes it fun. We ABSOLUTELY loved her! I hope to use her again in the future (maybe when I have my first little one :)) and 2 of my bridesmaids are already asking about her for their upcoming weddings. aaah! I don't want to share!
Kim did an amazing job! We could not be happier with our wedding pictures. She made everyone feel so comfortable and was able to get get so many great candid shots as well as some creative posed shots! Will definetly have her do pictures for us in the future for other occasions ! The final results were above and beyond anything I could have imagined! We highly recommend Kim!
KIm captured exactly what I wanted for our beach wedding. She was easy going and managed the crowd beautifully to get them in some kind of formation.
I received the photos quickly and they were all great shots.
I highly recommend her!
my wife and i got married in august 2013 in newport, ri and really wanted photos that took in the beauty of newport and our special moments. we talked with kim numerous times and she was very aware of what we wanted, but also added her expertise to help us get the most out of our special day. kim really did her homework before the big day to scope out potential spots and locations within the timeframe we had given her. our parent's are both divorced and kim did an excellent job of making everyone feel important and getting a ton of photos despite the large number of separate groups on a short timeframe. we loved every aspect of working with kim and would highly recommend her for your wedding. she was very attentive to our needs and really captured every single moment of our wedding. she's absolutely awesome! go lock her up as your photographer today!
We used Kim Praast for our wedding and we were beyond happy we picked her and she was was available for our wedding. We loved her attitude, sense of humor, ease to be around, and artistic eye. We loved her so much we recently used her to photograph our daughter's first birthday! Kim is now our "go-to" photographer!
From the moment i first spoke to Kim, until she sent us our final pictures, we were beyond satisfied working with Kim. The day of our wedding she was professional, not pushy or demanding- she let us enjoy our wedding day without being that "annoying photographer", yet capturing so many amazing moments and pictures of us! She was easy to work with, fun and creative.
We were beyond pleased with our photos. Light and coloring were spot on, the moments & shots she captured were unique and special....beyond the traditional photos.
Selecting a photographer for your wedding day can be quite nerve racking and I must say, we made the right choice going with Kim Praast!
We were blessed to have Kim Praast as our wedding photographer. She was able to capture all of those special moments which made our day incredible. Our experience with Kim began with a sit down several months before the wedding as we planned to meet with several photographers, thankfully Kim blew us away and as we drove home we knew that we already found the perfect person for photographing our wedding. Her demeanor and her skill set wowed the both of us as we weren't looking for a photographer who just lined you up and took photographs but rather someone who was able to create art out of your wedding.
Before the wedding, the bride had an intimate photo shoot with Kim as a little gift to the groom. She raved about the experience saying that she felt so comfortable and that Kim truly made her feel like a beautiful woman (which she is). And I'll say that the results came out fantastic!
When the big day came, Kim was on point, taking photos of the bridal party getting ready. She was able to capture the joy in the room as everyone was getting ready and especially was able to capture the beauty of the bride on her special day. At the ceremony at the church, Kim stayed out of the way but was still able to get great shots of the best man, groom, maid of honor and bride.
After the ceremony, the parents and bride and groom met with all of the guest outside of the church and Kim was really able to capture some great images and the joy of the occasion. I'm sure we'll be using a lot of these photos as frame Christmas presents to all our friends and family.
But where Kim really shined was at the reception. Our reception was about a 45 minute drive away and we knew that it was going to be close in regards to getting enough daylight to take pictures. When we arrived at the reception Kim quickly got some posed photos but also a bunch of photos of our bridal and grooms party having fun as well as great photos of our parents and us. I'm assure that if we had a less experienced photographer that they would not have been able to get such great photos because of the low light and impending twilight.
Instead of fighting against the low lighting Kim used it to her advantage and took some of our favorite photos of the two of us up against the barn, using strategic lighting from the building in order to really capture the moment. These definitely were some of our favorites.
For the rest of the night, at the reception, Kim continued to capture all the fun and revelry from all the guests and was also able to capture a lot of the work that the bride had put into the flowers, table decorations and the overall decor.
They tell you that the day goes by too fast and that the memories and photos are all you'll have to last you the rest of your life. If you choose Kim Praast as your photographer you'll be assured that those photos are ones that people will treasure and marvel about for years to come.
My husband and I are so happy we chose Kim as our wedding photographer! Kim shot our engagement pictures, wedding, and post-wedding. She gave us the perfect mix of pictures! She makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera and gives great direction! Our mothers wanted some "posed" pictures at the wedding and Kim was more than willing to do whatever they wanted. Our engagement pictures are great- they really show our personalities perfectly! The wedding pictures capture our entire day- you can't even tell it was raining! We did our post-wedding shoot yesterday- It was so much fun to put the dress on again! Kim was so much fun, so laid back! We absolutely loved working with Kim!! She is amazing!
