My husband and I could not be more thrilled with Katie! We do not consider ourselves to be naturals behind the camera, and during our engagement shoot as well as wedding, she was able to comfortably guide us so everything felt natural and fun! ...
Our photos turned out incredibly (no surprise there) and we are so happy with how everything turned out!
Katie does it all. She is able to take stunning portraits and design shots, as well as catch the special in between moments. She truly captured the energy of our big day perfectly, and have received countless compliments on our photos.
Katie has a wonderful, fun attitude and we felt like friends right away. She was a calming presence during my wedding day, and was able to guide our large families and wedding parties with ease. We truly loved working with Katie and cannot recommend her enough!

Katie is DREAM wedding photographer! She shot our wedding and rehearsal in November and she is just pure magic. She took the time to meet with us (it was a destination wedding for us) when we came to town and align on our overall vision for our...
wedding pics and all the moments we wanted captured - which she did perfectly! Her vibe and energy put me at ease with how chaotic the day could seem. She was our hype girl, but also gave direction and wrangled all of our friends and family for pictures with ease and her composure was 12/10. Our family and friends still talk about Katie and how she couldn't have handled us or herself better! I was floored when she sent us sneak peaks within days our wedding and all of our pictures within 2 months. Her dedication to her clients and her work is unparalleled. I look at our pictures and smile/cry daily and am so grateful we found Katie to capture our wad exactly as we wanted it and experienced it. I want to go back and do it all over again so Katie can give us more pictures!!! Cannot recommend this gem of a human or photographer enough!

Wow, I don't even know where to start. From the second we chatted over the phone to discuss our vision, to saying goodbye on the dance floor, I KNEW we picked the perfect person to capture our wedding. Katie was extremely professional, calming ...
and an expert at shooting our day. Katie made sure that we were comfortable the whole time and went with the flow when things changed. Within a week, we got so many highlight photos, making us SO happy. Two months after our wedding, we got our entire album! Every single photo was incredible and allows us to relive our day, over and over. We hired both Vinny (her husband) and Katie for our video and photos- highly recommend this power couple! We love Katie and wish we could have 5 more weddings so that we could hire them again! You won't regret hiring her for your day!

BEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER EVER! I can't say enough great things about Katie Edwards Photography. Katie is absolutely AMAZING...literally everything we could have wanted and more!! When I was looking for a photographer I was looking for 2 things...
: (1) That they took good pics and edited them in the style that we wanted and (2) that the photographer had good vibes and energy. We knew that this person was going to present for all of our most intimate moments so we wanted to be sure they had a good attitude and positive energy. Katie checked all of the boxes and was the ABSOLUTE BEST!
Her work speaks for itself (have you seen her stuff!?) but what you can't see online is what a great asset having her with you on your wedding day is. She was such a calming, warming and happy presence on our wedding day which made all of the difference as we were dealing with unforeseen gale force winds and rain on our wedding day (so fun! lol). I remember at one point in the day when I was visibly overwhelmed she calmly checked in with me and asked "Do you need a minute? Do you want to take a step outside?" These small questions made me feel so taken care of and helped keep me grounded on our wedding day. No matter how much you plan things will go wrong and having vendors, especially a photographer, that can keep a positive attitude and be able to roll with the punches was key to having an enjoyable wedding day.
Katie captured all of our moments and we had so many of our loved ones sing her praises even during the event. We loved getting the polaroids at the end of the night and getting a highlight gallery within 3 days of our wedding was icing on the cake!! Getting those photos so quickly after the wedding is such a fun way to reflect on a whirlwind of a day and extend the wedding hype a little more! We are so incredibly thankful for Katie and couldn't recommend her more!

or our engagement shoot as well as our wedding. She was nothing short of amazing! Punctual and professional, but relaxed and fun she really is the total package! Katie put us at ease right away at our engagement shoot and we knew we hired the perfect photographer for us! She is outgoing, but never overbearing and does not pose you too much. She lets you be natural in the moment. At our wedding, Katie made sure to capture all of our most special moments without having us feel like we were really being photographed. She was never obtrusive, and she made sure to not block any of the guests' experiences, but she even got out on the dance floor and danced with us!! The polaroids she gives you on the night of your wedding are a special keepsake we will have forever along with all of the other amazing photos. We love Katie and would recommend her to anyone who wants to hire THE BEST photographer for their wedding!

r photos are spectacular and really capture the moment and vibe. One of the reasons her photos are so amazing, is that Katie is such a warm and kind person, she makes you feel your most comfortable best self in front of the camera. Before booking a photographer we didn’t realize how important their personality is - we got so lucky with Katie, she’s warm, calm, and after our shoots we feel like we have known her forever. She’s a friend for life now! She truly is the best and I couldn’t recommend her more. Thank you Katie!

If you've seen her photographs online, you already know how uniquely talented Katie is. What you may not know, though, is that she's an even better human who brings exactly the type of calming yet confident energy that you want surrounding you ...
on your wedding day. Hiring Katie was without a doubt one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding, and I will forever be grateful for her and the beautiful way that she captured the memories of our very favorite day.
First off, the photos! Our wedding photos turned out even more gorgeous than I could have possibly imagined. It's hard to convey in words how much I love them, but I am SO glad we chose Katie and that we have these images to cherish forever. The images captured the vibe of the day and our love so well, I feel like I'm back on the day of our wedding every time I look at them. The polaroids were a really special touch, and it was so fun to have physical pictures to relive the magic the day after.
Then there is Katie herself. I can't understate how much it meant to me to be surrounded on my wedding day by vendors who felt like friends and whose vibes were calming and positive amidst the chaos. Katie was exactly that. When we first met her, Katie felt like the type of sweet, laid back, honest person my husband and I would be friends with, and that made it so much easier and more fun to work with her during our engagement shoot and on our wedding day. So many of our friends and family commented on how much they loved her and how great she was at the wedding, and one of my bridesmaids already hired Katie to shoot her own!
I would wholeheartedly recommend Katie to absolutely anyone looking for a wedding photographer. She is a true gem and you won't regret it!

first time at our engagement shoot, Katie made us (not huge photo takers) feel instantly comfortable and at ease.
When it came down to the wedding day (and rehearsal), Katie was amazing -- she is incredibly professional, both firm and friendly in her direction (which was necessary with our huge wedding party!), and also captured the intimate bride & groom moments perfectly.
The best surprise was coming back to the bride & groom suite to find all the polaroids from the day waiting for us — such a thoughtful and personal touch from Katie.
And when we received our first batch of photos, we absolutely died. They are not only stunning but Katie's innate ability to capture the special moments shines through with each one. Since then, I've gotten countless inquiries about who photographed our wedding and would proudly recommend this incredibly talented photographer to any future bride! Thanks, Katie! :)

vested interest in the classic wedding shots and lineups. And the day we met she generously took photos of us for our wedding announcement, without charging us. When the big day came Katie was there early (she drove all the way to Ojai), putting absolutely zero pressure on us to pose or arrange shots, but knowing intuitively what moments mattered. It takes empathy to read our dynamic and the energy of the group as well as she does. Looking at the photography later, it's incredible how many meaningful moments she grabbed without us noticing. She's like a mindreader and a shapeshifter, everywhere at once. She also truly captured the scenery and light around us -- you can tell from the photos that she appreciated the natural beauty that we wanted to share with our loved ones. Katie stayed well beyond the contracted time, to make sure we had some photo time on the dance floor. Beyond all this, the work was delivered quickly, she communicated extremely professionally, and her rate was much more affordable than most quotes we received. We're still reliving the day through her work, which, we guess, is the whole point of a wedding photographer. We're very grateful!
