We recently got married in October and hired Katelynn to do our engagement and wedding photos. I can’t tell you enough how amazing she is! From the start of our engagement photos all the way through our wedding photos, Katelynn made us feel so ...
comfortable and took the most amazing pictures that captured us perfectly.
Katelynn is so professional and prompt and made it super easy to not worry! She made sure to focus on what WE wanted and really advocated for us.
Our pictures are beautiful and captured our most favorite memory of all!
Also have to mention, her second photographer for our wedding day, Jess is also amazing! Her and Katelynn work so well together and make an awesome team!
We can't wait to have Katelynn capture the next chapter of our lives! :)

The best decision I made was having Kate as our wedding photographer! I cannot imagine our special day without her. From the moment I inquired back in August of 2020, to our wedding day October 2021, Kate was with us every step of the way. S...
he was amazing at communicating, answering my (many) questions, and making us feel so comfortable in front of the camera! Throughout this process, she became a great friend as well. On our wedding day, she made sure we stayed on track with timing, and made it a priority to ensure my husband and I were taken care of. Her positive energy, flexibility, and expertise made the day so much fun and so memorable. Kate perfectly captured our love--her photographs are of the highest quality and have unique touches that represent each of her clients. We are so very thankful that we had Kate be apart of our wedding day. She went above and beyond to make our day everything and more!

Her kindness radiated all day and our families could not say enough good things about her. She was so great at making us feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera! She also made my sunset and veil photo dreams come true with her amazing photography skills! We are so in love with every picture that she took! She captured the best memories for us and we can’t recommend her enough!

My Husband and I reached out to Kate Diamond Photography shortly after our engagement. I had been following Katelynn's work for years, I knew I wanted her to photograph our wedding before my husband even started to think about a ring! I knew we...

We looked so natural and comfortable, which is exactly what we had hoped for. Katelynn is extremely professional, she's a total dream to work with! Katelynn helped us so much with our timeline, giving us ideas about how to structure the day, and she picked the most beautiful bridal party photo location.. her familiarity with the metro Detroit locations is a total game changer! All I can say is if you get the chance to work with her BOOK IT & buy all the amazing digital downloads!! The photos she delivers are stunning, you simply can't choose. I'm obsessed! Thank you, Katelynn!! We appreciate you so much! You're the best!

HIRE HER! You won’t regret it.
I made a spreadsheet, compared pros/cons, & interviewed several photographers. Some of them felt ok but nothing felt great, I worried the overall cost of things was souring my decisions. Then I interviewed Kate D...
iamond – I left the interview feeling GREAT. She had an answer to EVERY question (& I have a lot of questions), her enthusiasm was contagious, & I immediately felt confident that I could trust her to handle the day. She was extremely detailed, communicative, & clearly had a formula figured out that ensured success. I’ll be honest, her overall price for what I wanted was more than my other options by quite a bit. I had an internal struggle if it was justifiable to spend more money just because someone gave me confidence or peace of mind. My fiancé thought I was ridiculous spending even $1,000 on photos, & close friends would suggest we use some random person who takes photos as a hobby. I couldn’t shake the confidence I felt in her & decided to go with my gut. I felt immediate relief as soon as I booked her & absolutely knew she would rock it.
We opted to have her & a 2nd shooter for 9 hours & they were amazing for every second of it. They were very professional, quick, organized, & worked well within the chaos that surrounds large events. They handled rambunctious groomsmen with ease & kept the day on schedule. Katelynn was great at providing specific posing direction, as needed, to help guarantee the perfect shot. She even helped pick out some last-minute jewelry choices! Not even mother nature could slow them down, & they took magical photos of our first dance in the rain.
I received so many compliments from people the day after our wedding about how our photography team conducted themselves. People were already impressed & hadn’t even seen how the photos turned out! We received our online gallery with all event photos less than a week after we returned from our honeymoon. There were almost 1,200 photos & they are dreamy. I knew they would be good, but I fall in love with my photos more & more each day. The worst part is trying to choose a favorite when I’m trying to order a canvas or something to hang on the wall – I want them all to be seen! Trying to choose only 40 for my fine art album feels impossible. I don’t think my SO has ever been prouder of a photo before & my MIL said she has never seen prettier wedding photos in her entire life. Two other people that I know were married this year, both selected a photographer that was more ‘affordable’, & both had regrets once seeing my gallery. The difference in quality & overall experience is clear. We have had endless compliments about the photos we have shared, & every penny spent is justified. When all is said & done, you really don’t have much else to show from your perfect day – it absolutely flies by & becomes a blur.
Do yourself a favor & savor it all in the best way possible. Get a 2nd shooter, the package with 100% of your photos, the longest package you can afford, & do a First Look. Pay for the travel if you need to, it is totally worth it. I guarantee that if you tell Katelynn what you want, she will do everything in her power to make it happen but it’s on you if you don’t share your thoughts.
How someone makes you feel is worth it, spend the money on someone who relieves stress instead of adding to it, confidence is money well spent!

Photography was really important to me for our wedding. I wanted beautiful, elegant photos that my husband and I could cherish for the rest of our lives. With that said, we booked her EARLY, 2 years before our wedding date! While we felt like w...
e were way ahead of the curve, apparently other couples were also looking to book her that far out because shortly after our first meeting with her, she informed us that someone else was also looking at our exact date (crazy right?!). We decided to put the deposit down that night so that we could hire her for our event because I didn't want to miss out on a really amazing photographer. Katelynn was very responsive to our emails and was always very professional. She showed up right on time and was able to control a crowd of people while doing group shots (definitely an important skill for your photographer!). My husband and I were blown away by the photos she took for both our engagement session and wedding. She has an amazingly creative eye and a really unique skill set. Her turnaround time was really quick, we had our photos back in about one month which felt crazy fast. Things I would recommend if going with Kate Diamond: 1. Book early so someone else doesn't take your day 2. Look carefully at the packages and understand what you are actually getting. This was our first time hiring a professional photographer and we didn't initially understand that getting an "online gallery of wedding day edits" meant being able to view the photos with watermarks and then having to decide which ones we wanted to pay for printing rights to on top of that. I would highly recommend going with a more expensive package from the onset despite the initial sticker shock. It is REALLY hard to make a decision on what selection of 250 or 350 photos you want to keep/have print releases for when you are emotionally tied to the photos of your beautiful day and the people who mean so much to you and you have over 1000 photos to look at! We ended up paying more than the cost of the second-tier package when it was all said and done after paying for the engagement photos we wanted (none were included in the base price the year we booked!), an extra hour of photography, and then deciding we wanted the download/printing rights to all the photos in the online gallery. Everything was absolutely worth the extra costs for the work she does, we just wished we would have considered the true costs earlier on. With that said, her work is absolutely amazing and we have no regrets about hiring her and would absolutely hire her again for work in the future.

work on her FB page/website, to the day that my husband and I met her for our first consultation; we knew she was the ONE to capture our day. Choosing K. Polidan Photography/Katelynn was one of the best choices we made in our wedding planning process.
Katelynn is professional and easy to work with. We really felt like we were working with one of our close friends, not someone that we had only met a few times. Our engagement photos last fall turned out beautiful; she captured our vision of a downtown Detroit engagement session perfectly.
On our wedding day, Katelynn and her second shooter Jessica were amazing! They kept things running smoothly the entire day and were able to fit in all of the pictures that we wanted. We received so many compliments of how great they were.

I knew Katelynn's work would impress me, but I am completely astounded at what an artist she is. She truly made me feel like the most beautiful bride!

atelynn. Our engagement session was a dream and it truly sealed the deal that we wanted to have her capture our wedding.
What I like about Katelynn is that she truly takes the time go get to know you as a couple before your wedding day arrives. I can say that neither Jeff nor I are very comfortable in front of a camera, but all of that disappears once she takes charge. I ended up doing a boudoir session with her before the wedding and I am SO glad I did! Those pictures turned out phenomenal and gave me that extra boost of confidence before my wedding day! It also made a great gift for my husband.
The day of the wedding, she knew what was important to us to capture, and I had no worries that they would miss a shot. She also took us aside to capture priceless pictures of just the two of us throughout our venue and those pictures are probably the best ones we received. Needless to say, ALL of our pictures turned out PHENOMENAL and every time I look at them, I get to relive all of the special moments and emotions of the best day of my life!
Katelynn’s professionalism is one of her strongest traits. We always received prompt responses to any questions we had. She chooses terrific people to work with K.Polidan photography because her second shooter was amazing as well. She was always there to help adjust my (HUGE) dress and capture shots from a second angle.
I could go on and on about how awesome our experience was, but the fact that my sister chose her for her upcoming wedding says enough. I can’t wait for her big day, and I can’t wait for future opportunities to work with Katelynn, maternity, anniversary, the opportunities are endless.

Katelynn and her coworker did an amazing job. Honestly I have put off writing a review because that truly means John and I's big day is finally over, but I am so happy to have worked with such a great photographer so I will always remember my d...
ream day. Katelynn gave amazing directions that made every photo flow naturally, she also was able to capture every possible memorable moment from our big day. From those in my bridal party who have stood up in other weddings before, they said she was the best photographer that they have worked with because she is naturally amazing at her job. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect photographer and also a great wobble dance partner :) Thank you to K.Polidan photography for spending our beautiful wedding day in June with us and even for traveling to the west side of Michigan for us. Perfection! I would recommend K.Polidan Photography over and over again!

ly loves what she does. There was never a moment of feeling posed for a picture they all came so naturally and everything was beyond my imagination. She will be taking all of our pictures from this point on. There really isn't enough good things to describe how much we loved our experience. If you want to feel beautiful in every picture and want a carefree, wonderful experience I highly recommend Katelynn!!

ck a favorite. She can turn anyone into models, and obviously can produce Pinterest quality photos in a single shot. I highly recommend her services and have already. Guests, family and friends throughout the wedding as well as even after the fact keep complimenting her and her photography skills. We also opted for a second shooter, Boyan, and he captured some great angles and shots as well. We are really happy that both of them got to make a weekend out of the work trip, and my husband and I are 150% satisfied with K. Polidan Photography.

I truly can't express how blessed I was to find Katie and book her for my June 27th wedding. She was the sweetest, nicest, and the most professional photographer I have EVER worked with. With all of the stress that weddings can put on a bride, ...
I never once was worried about my pictures. She thought of everything and was able to stay calm and collected even with delegating large families, multiple locations, and rain. Katie even wore her rain boots so she could capture every moment, even if it meant standing in the creek! My pictures are so beautiful and Katelynn is worth every single penny for her talent. For the hundreds of compliments I received for everything Katie has done will last me a lifetime. I know that within the next few years when my sister gets married, Katie will be the first they go to for their photos!!! Best wedding decision I made by far (well besides marrying my husband :) )

K.Polidan photography was absolutely incredible. All our pictures from our engagement shoot were beautiful. We ended up using them on our save the dates and received multiple compliments from guests. Katelynn knew exactly how to pose us and...
captured what our relationship is about.
I also used the services for a boudoir shoot. I'll start off by saying that I was extremely nervous since I had never done anything like that before but once I was there I had a blast! Katelynn helped me by sending wardrobe ideas and made me feel super comfortable! Not to mention, my husband ended up loving them!
So needless to say, I just received my wedding album and I look forward to going through it! I know there will be awesome pictures in there and I can't wait to share them with family and friends. I will recommend this photographer to anyone and everyone with a wedding coming up!

with the way they came out! Katelynn and her assistant photographed our wedding in the beginning of June. She is everything we could have hoped for in a photographer (organized, professional and creative with photo opportunities)! Katelynn did an amazing job at making us feel comfortable in front of a camera and she is a ton of fun to work with. We are extremely grateful for all of the special moments she has captured for us and for the gorgeous pictures we will have for a lifetime. I feel like we have built a friendship over these sessions/events and I am so glad K.Polidan Photography has been a part of one of the best years of our lives! We will definitely be using Katelynn again in the future!

! We immediately struck a conversation with her and fell in love with her personality after we already were in love with her work! It was a match made in heaven...just like my wife and I! From the second we met her, she was so helpful and always available for questions and ideas. We had an engagement shoot and her work took our breath away! then came the wedding day! The most anticipated day of our lives..and stressful...and there Katelynn was to help assist us every step of the way and made our memories beautifully displayed forever! She was one of the best choices we made for our wedding (besides eachother of course). She is very professional, experienced, fun, creative and one of the nicest people you could ever work with! I HIGHLY recommend her for any event or for anything that you want to have memories of! We will use her for anything we can for the rest of our lives together! Thank you again Katelynn and crew! You made our big day so amazing and we look forward to many more shoots!
