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... Read More 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... Read More 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.

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.

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.

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!

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... Read More 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

UPDATE: My wedding was just as smooth if not more so than my bridal portrait session with Katy! All the portraits flew by (and looked amazing!) with her direction during cocktail hour. She even made an announcement offering our guests to get their pictures made with each other/certain family members to have the lasting memories! This especially made my aunts/mom happy as they were able to get one last, amazing picture made with my grandpa (their father) as his health is now beginning to fail. Again, I would recommend Katy for any photography session, particularly for weddings. Thanks to her, I will have the most beautiful and lasting memories to keep through the rest of my life with my new husband. :)

Hi, I'm Katy. I believe in Christ. The unity of marriage. That timeless images are classic and classic will never be out of style. I believe in relationships, and that your wedding photographer should be more than just "hired help". I believe in capturing the moments in between. The moments that should not be forgotten. I believe in taking images, not just for you and your husband, but for the generations to come. I believe in silver frames on fireplace mantels. I believe love does endure all things.
