Katy is the absolute best. she made my fiance and I feel so comfortable and really let us be ourselves which resulted in THE BEST photos!! The engagement photos are something we will have forever and i cannot wait to have her join us for the wedding. She has quickly become a friend and there's noone I'd rather have by my side on the big day!!
Katy did a wonderful job capturing photos of our wedding and reception!! She is easy to work with and has a nice sense of humor. She is truly a professional! She photographed family portraits quickly and was great with the children. The locations she selected for the portraits were outstanding! We couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Thanks again Katy!
Katy is AMAZING!! I saw her sample pictures and knew I had to book her. My now husband and I had our engagement photos taken in the Fall, which is a great time to take them. The photos turned out beautiful! Katy was so sweet and fun, which made the session super great. My bridals were beautiful and those pictures turned out...OMG!! My husband and I loved our wedding pictures. She was able to capture every beautiful moment. Katy is reasonably priced and prompt on responding to emails. She is very professional and is willing to give you exactly what you ask for. I would and will use her in the future! Thanks Katy for making out day wonderful!!
There aren't enough stars that can possibly rate how amazing Katy was. From the first inquiry, she made me feel so comfortable. She is genuine, professional, and captured our day perfectly. Every detail and request was paid attention to, and she was warm and personable and made us and all of our guests and family so relaxed during pictures. We were expecting a few highlight photos, so when Katy presented us with a wonderful blog, and then our online gallery with HUNDREDS of AMAZING pictures that she took at our wedding, we were blown away. The images and moments that she captured perfectly illustrate our amazing wedding. Given that our venue was so large and that especially before the wedding, the girls' getting ready room, guys' getting ready room, and ceremony venue were so far apart from each other, it is a wonder to me how she managed to not only take so many awesome pictures, but that she was able to capture our entire day in such a limited amount of time. The only hiccup in our timeline for the day was that despite the best of planning, we only ended up with about 15 minutes of couple portrait time (delays as expected for a variety of reasons, none of which had anything to do with Katy), and in that short time, she took so many amazing shots of us that it looks like we did portraits for an hour. My husband (I love that I get to call him that now) does not like having pictures taken (typical guy, lol), but Katy put him at ease and she took so many truly beautiful and touching shots of us just being us, which perfect illustrate a sincere, genuine intimacy. I told her that I really wanted to be sure that his reaction when he saw me for the first time coming down the aisle (we didn't do a first look) was really important to me, and she managed to get both his reaction AND great shots of me walking down the aisle without a second shooter! Because we had a military wedding, there were a lot of extra details in the ceremony, and throughout the evening, and Katy really nailed it. We were so caught up in each other during the ceremony that we didn't even realize some of the details and special things that our friends, family and vendors had arranged for until we saw them in Katy's amazing photos. When the order of our reception got a little mixed up, Katy was so flexible and professional and just kept shooting. I knew that I wanted to be sure to invest in the best photographer, because I wanted to have beautiful pictures for posterity. I can't imagine anyone else that could have been such a perfect fit for everything we wanted than Katy. She is above and beyond- talented, patient, professional, kind, genuine. You will NOT be disappointed unless you don't book Katy to photograph your wedding! Feel free to read the lovely blog she wrote about our wedding, and see some of the beautiful images she captured. She is amazing, and is still checking in with us to be sure our wedding photo needs are being met. A million gold stars. Katy is THE BEST!!! https://katherynjeannephotography.pixieset.com/bonnyanddavidomnigroveparkinnwedding/
Katy was great!!! I could not have asked for a better experience. The engagement photos turned out fabulously!
Katy is the best a Bride and Groom could ask for! I, the Groom, not being particularly photogenic, greatly appreciated the effort and attentiveness she brought to our shoots. Through good direction and some 'locker room' humor, I have never looked better (seriously, not photogenic) and happier in pictures. Thus, my wife and mother now have some great shots of me to show off. Katy does a wonderful job of managing the energy, the crowd, and her job all at the same time. She allowed us to be ourselves and captured some wonderful, and some hilarious, images of us enjoying each other, and those that mean the most to us. Most importantly, Katy can reel you in and bring light to the gravity of the situation to capture the most classic of shots. Given the amount of wonderful shots we received while never noticing a camera around, her true passion and her ability capture the truly magical moments was clearly demonstrated. Katy went well beyond the call of duty a few times: negotiated with security guards, stood in the middle of the street, took the stairs as opposed to the elevator to beat the storm, and once we got the shot and the storm reached us Katy sprinted to her car to pick up my wife. Katy, thank you. It was such a pleasure working with you and thanks to you we have beautiful and hysterical memories we will cherish for the rest of our lives!
My wife and I first met Katy right after we got engaged and we knew after our consultation with her that she was very organized and professional. Then, it was during our engagement photo session that I realized just how great Katy really was. I'm the type of guy that doesn't like getting pictures taken, but Katy really knew how to make the whole experience fun and not just a boring, sappy photo shoot. She is very personable and kind, and treated us like she had known us for years. We were blown away with how great the photos turned out and how Katy really paid attention to detail. Then for the wedding day, Katy was with us every step of the way, capturing it on camera. I have been to a lot of weddings, and I have never seen a photographer work as hard as Katy did for us. She made sure every possible picture that needed to be taken happened. Most of the photographers I have observed seem to have a handful of pictures they want to take, then leave it up to the bride and groom to figure out the rest. Not with Katy! We were never left wondering "what to do next?". After getting all the family shots, she kept rolling with ideas for other "scenes" and making the most of what the church and venue had to offer. During the reception, she was on her feet at all times, making sure to capture every moment that arose. So many people have told us how impressed they were with Katy and how she made sure to capture all those moments and how awesome all the photos were that they had seen from our engagement session and my wife's Bridal portraits. They, like us, were blown away! I cannot say enough good things about Katy. It's an under statement to say she went above and beyond. We are so grateful that she was the one to capture our special day.
Katheryn Jeanne Photography is the best wedding photographer in the Charlotte area, HANDS DOWN! My wife and I were BLOW AWAY at the beautiful photos! She perfectly captured 'us' and made my wife's dream wedding a reality! I did not expect such professionalism and excitement from a wedding photographer. My favorite part is that we gained a really good friend and someone that we trust to take all our event photos in the future! Thank you so much, Katy! We'll be sending our engaged friends your way! P.S. Can you tell me how to turn off these social media notifications? Everyone STILL keeps liking and commenting on them! ;)
We had our engagement shoot with Katy a few weeks back, and even for a groom, it was a very pleasant experience. Katy made us feel comfortable and we were very happy with the photos we got. Katy was so easy to work with and made the shoot a stress free environment.
Katy was awesome to work with and made us feel at ease on our wedding day. She helped us bring our vision to life and captured images that showed our personalities. Our traditional portraits were great, but the candid pictures from our reception were the best! She definitely captured the fun on film!! I can't tell you how many comments we got on the quality of our pictures (and Katy herself!), so would highly recommend her for your wedding day!
I first met Katy after a bad experience with a previous photographer. We hit it off immediately and I knew I had to jump at the opportunity to work with her for our wedding. We recently had our engagement session and we couldn't be more excited and pleased with our pictures. Katy is truly remarkable and is able to capture the essence of "what makes you you as a couple". We were quite nervous about being in front of a camera, but Katy has the uncanny ability to make you feel "right at home" in front of the lens. I cannot wait for her to shoot my bridal portraits and our wedding in the spring!
I know this is a wordy post, but Katy deserves all of this praise and more. My husband and I feel like we made the best decision ever hiring Katy to capture such an important part of our lives. Reflecting on our experience with Katy, we were really nervous at our engagement picture session. Katy did a wonderful job at getting us to loosen up. We ended up having such a fun time with this shoot! When it came time for my bridal portraits in August – the photos were ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!! Katy nailed it. The day of my bridal portraits was a little stressful with a family emergency. Katy was so patient and made sure I was in the best of spirits during my session. She is always professional while making you feel like you are hanging out with a friend. She even got some sneak peak pictures to me in time for my dad's surgery the next day. This was the sweetest thing in the world for my family and my dad that day. By the time our wedding day rolled around in September, I knew we were in good hands. We just received our wedding gallery back, and again we just could NOT be happier with our pictures. I couldn't recommend a more wonderful photographer!! Hiring Katy was hands down one of the best decisions we made during the wedding planning process.
Katy and Emily have been great to work with! They have made our engagement and pre-wedding couple photo shoots perfect! We had the crazy idea to turn my bridal portrait shoot into a couple shoot and it was AMAZING! I am so happy with the results and can't wait to see our wedding pictures!
Katy was absolutely fantastic! She was professional, organized, easy going, and made the whole experience enjoyable. Her work is so pure in heart, and captures all the beauty of the couple and the shooting locations. Thanks for a fun afternoon and gorgeous pictures!
Katy is absolutely wonderful! I don't even know where to begin! Her personality makes you feel so natural. She knows how to position and guide you so you get the best possible pictures. I can't wait to use her for other sessions I need!
Working with Katy was fantastic, right from the beginning. She is such a genuine person and truly wants you to LOVE your photos. She goes above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and happy. Her work is outstanding--I didn't know I could photograph so well, but somehow she made me look and feel beautiful. I'd recommend Katy to anyone looking for a fantastic wedding photographer. She's the best!
Katy is so sweet and genuine! She makes people comfortable, and that's so important when trying to get natural photos. She really wants to create the best experience and photos for your event, and she cares about people beyond just the job. I love all of our pictures, and I appreciate the details that she captured. I also liked Jordan, the second shooter for the wedding - they were both total champs and stayed high energy all day.
Katy is top tier when it comes to photography! I crave the best, and that's definitely Katy. It's so obvious that she loves what she does.... pure talent! I am such a perfectionist and I was blown away with how amazing my engagement photos came out. I love them beyond words and so does my handsome fiancé. Our sessions was so fun, and Katy was so excited as she was taking our pictures. She made me feel stunning. She had great ideas and was very professional, yet I felt like we had been friends for years because she is so natural with her gift for photography. Katy takes time to get to know you and your style and she pays extremely close attention to detail. It is so easy to be in contact with her. I "fear better options" but y'all seriously - there is no better option! It's so reassuring that my wedding pictures will be amazing...I can't wait!
Absolutely stunning. So from the moment we met Katy, we knew she would be the person that would really get us. And from our quirky and beautiful engagement photos to our absolutely stunning wedding photos, we made the right choice. But lots of photographers on here have lovely photos, and excellent reviews. They aren't Katy. Why she's the best: 1) She gets to know YOU and what YOU BOTH want. We took our engagement photos at a dinosaur playground and our wedding photos in an abandoned garderner's cottage, among other places. She took what we wanted and did incredible things with it. 2) Her photos are magazine quality. That speaks for itself. 3) She is an absolute JOY to be around. We wanted to be sure to hire someone who wouldn't seem out of place or awkward or weird with our guests. Katy not only got incredible shots, but people are still telling us how lovely our photographer was. 4) I repeat, the photos are incredible. My only negative? Pretty sure house guests are going to tease us for the number of wedding photos we intend on having up, all over. Thank you Katy! Love, Alex + Jen
My fiance and I just had our engagement session with Katy and we were just amazed by her work. She worked so well with us and captured the most amazing pictures! The session was fun and laid back and she had our pictures back to us in a matter of days! We are so excited to work with Katy on our wedding day!!
I love the variety of backgrounds/locations. The photos look very natural and not posed.
Katy photographed our daughter's wedding. She is creative and full of energy. Guests at the wedding stated that they loved the photographer--and that was before seeing any of her beautiful photos. It is evident that Katy loves what she does AND she is exceptionally great at it. She is willing to work out packages to accommodate budgets and it was amazing how quickly she got photos to us. We are thankful that we found Katy and we highly recommend her.
Katy was amazing! She did a great job capturing all of our special moments. She was very patient and super professional. Everyone at the wedding loved her! I would definitely recommend Red Balloon Photography to anyone!
We loved working with Katy for our recent engagement session! She helped brainstorm ideas for locations based upon what we were looking for and made us feel so comfortable on the day of our shoot. Katy helped put us at ease during our session, and we ended up having so much fun. We so appreciated how quickly we received our photos as well. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a photographer to check out Red Balloon Photography, we cannot wait to work with her again for our wedding!
While not wedding photos, I hired Katy to take family pictures for the past two years and she has exceeded my expectations each time! I have two young children who are shy in front of the camera; Katy was able to make them feel comfortable instantly in order to capture their personalities and their adored facial expressions that I never seem to be able to catch quick enough on my own. I was so surprised at how many candid, real shots she was able to take without me even knowing! I am IN LOVE with our pictures and beyond thankful for them. Katy is creative, easy going and takes initiative while still delivering on what you want. I would (and will) hire Red Balloon Photography a thousand times over!
