Kim not only is an extremely talented photographer, but also has the ability to make you feel comfortable, beautiful, and relaxed. I was an out of town bride and live about 7 1/2 hours away from the venue. Kim was always attentive, responsive, and flexible. She always listened... Read More to my thoughts/ideas and gave me great advice and suggestions. Kim and her assistant were able to capture some incredibly beautiful moments of my husband and I's wedding. I always wanted pictures that were a bit more editorial/candid/etc and she was able to make our posed pictures look natural! Not only that but the she makes you feel like you're a movie star the entire time. She arrived right on time at the venue and immediately started snapping away. Her assistant was also present and photographed the groomsmen and groom, and was able to give my smile-shy husband some advice so he didn't frown in every single picture. Kim uses a bunch of different cameras and is constantly thinking about lighting, background, etc to get the perfect shot (which she got many of). Towards the end we had to add on another hour due to a delay that occurred before our introductions, and she was completely fine with staying and I could tell she just wanted to make sure I was happy. Also, many of my guests had no idea that she was taking pictures! She was not intrusive at all and really captured our wedding beautifully. Last but not least, the product is stunning. I have over 600 pictures from our wedding and am having an incredibly hard time figuring out which ones to print and hang up around the house! They're all so wonderful. Thank you Kim for everything!

I have had the pleasure of working with Kim twice; first for my sister's wedding two years ago and then for my own this past summer. She did such a fantastic job for my sister, I knew that I wanted Kim as my photographer when my day came. With so many things to worry about... Read More throughout the wedding planning, I knew that Kim wasn't going to be one of them. Start to finish she was extremely professional, prompt, and her genuine excitement for the work made me feel at ease and confident that she would do a fabulous job. Kim has a way of making you so comfortable in front of the camera that you forget she's there. But when you need a little help, she's there to guide you, primp you, and make sure she gets the perfect shot. Kim has a way of anticipating those magic moments and expertly captures the energy of the people and party through her photographs. I received hundreds of photos from Kim and every single one was fabulous. I truly can't say enough good things about Kim and am so thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with her.


AWESOME photographer!! Highly recommend!!!!

I cannot say enough good things about Kim Praast and her photography. The wedding photographer was one of the things I really, really cared about in all of the wedding planning. Since the photos are what you'll have when everything else is said and done. We interviewed 4... Read More photographers before Kim and none of them really clicked. But as soon as we met with Kim, I knew she was the one! She was very easy to talk to and understood the vision I had for the wedding photos. She has a great energy and is very professional. She always responded to any emails or text messages quickly. And I guess most important of all her photos were AMAZING!! In addition to awesome wedding photos, she had them edited and back to us really quickly after the wedding. I loved working with Kim and highly recommend her to any Bride and Groom!!!

I hired Kim to shoot my October 2017 wedding and she did an amazing job!!! She was easy to work with and meet with when we were in the process of signing the contract. Prior to my wedding, I had emailed her a list of all the group poses I wanted and she was happy to... Read More accommodate my requests. I also told her I really wanted a sunset portrait and she made sure to tap us on the shoulder and ask us to step out during our reception because it was the right time for a sunset pic. I received my photos in a month's time and I was extremely pleased with them. She's very talented, accommodating, and most of all, makes you feel relaxed, comfortable, and beautiful on your special day! I would highly recommend Kim!

I met Kim five years ago at my friends wedding. I knew since then I would want her to be my photographer as well. Working with her is like working with a friend she has such a great personality and is so easy to click with. We had our engagement photos done first and it was... Read More the first time we have ever had professional photos done and we were nervous but she put us at ease and they came out beautiful. The day of our wedding we ended up having 14 inches of snow. Kim did not miss a beat. She arrived early and didn't let the snow bother her one bit. She even had us go out while it was actively snowing and take a bunch of pictures out there. They are my absolute favorite photos from the whole day. She had us pose in unique ways that were not your traditional boring wedding photos. That's the part I loved about her the most. Not everything is super posed and it's so natural. There is not a moment of that day that she did not capture. The photos that she took that day are absolutely breathtaking. Every time I show people My wedding photos they comment on how amazing they are! I would recommend her without hesitation.

Kim was an absolute dream as our wedding photographer! I am from out of state and she made the time to meet with me whenever I was available. She was easy to reach by phone, email or text.

This is a very belated review, but as we look back on our wedding photos from last summer, we realize that we never did take the time to submit a review on our experience with Kim. We were married on Block Island last June. Without hesitation, Kim agreed to take the ferry out... Read More to the island to shoot our wedding. She did an excellent job capturing all of the important moments (wedding prep, ceremony, cocktails, toasts, and our reception) and made sure to snap all of the other photos (including many of our hand-made decorations) on our shot/request list. We met before the wedding to discuss our visions and desires and she absolutely fulfilled them! Kim is a total professional. She was a delight to work with. And her photos are really excellent. We would definitely recommend using Kim for your wedding or other event!

Kim is amazing! She gave us what we asked for and then some!! She pays attention to what you want to capture and does it in the most unique, inspiring way.

We absolutely loved working with Kim. We found her based on her stellar reviews from wedding websites and they were totally accurate! From our first meeting with Kim, we felt instantly at ease and knew we wanted her to be our photographer. She was so easy to talk to and... Read More really tried to get to know us so that she could appropriately capture us on our wedding day. She absolutely did. She was so easy to work with and was so flexible with us throughout the whole process. She knew when to take charge to rally the troops to get the group photos done so we could enjoy our day but still have great photos to look back on. We recently received all of our photos and will have a hard time deciding which to print since we love to many of them. If you are looking for your wedding photographer, look no further, you can't go wrong with Kim!

We are incredibly happy that we chose Kim for our wedding and engagement photos. The engagement shoot was one of our first photo experiences, and Kim did a fantastic job of encouraging and teaching us. Even with unfortunate weather during the scheduled date, she quickly found an... Read More indoor venue that was hip, interesting and romantic. During the day of the wedding, Kim and her assistant worked really well with us and all of the friends and family, and many guests commented on how lovely the photographers were when interacting and unassuming when taking candid shots. Kim has a great eye and really got to know us before each shoot, and she really captured the dynamics of our relationship in a great way. Overall, we were very happy with the quality of photos from both shoots and the price with full access to photos was a definite value. Thanks Kim!

Beyond Our Expectations

There are truly no words to adequately describe our elation with the photographs from our wedding day. Kim and her team are extraordinary. Capturing more than photographs, they capture the feeling of the moments during your day. That in itself is priceless. We were very... Read More picky when it came to choosing a photographer, and wanted to make sure that the photographs were authentic and didn't feel "posed for". Kim is amazing, talented, professional, punctual, organized, communicates consistently, and is able to anticipate the needs of her clients. She asked prior to our wedding day if there were any family members in particular that we wanted pictures with, and that made the portraits so much easier. It also allowed us to relax and know that when we were talking to people, she was aware of when to take a picture. Another great thing that sealed the deal and made us want to hire her, is that in the contract, she identifies what would happen if she is sick and unable to attend the wedding. Photos are guaranteed. No worrying if someone won't show up after you write a deposit check. There is no other photographer we would recommend, and for any pictures in the future, we will only use Kim.

We decided to go with Kim for our Valentine's Day wedding not only because we liked her work, but because we liked her so much! Kim was super flexible when we had to move up the time of our wedding because of an impending snowstorm. One of the best things about Kim was her...
