AWESOME photographer!! Highly recommend!!!!

Reviewed on 8/30/2015

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!!!

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!

On top of all that, Kim's prices are super reasonable and I loved that she offered a wide range of packages. I love the pictures that Kim got from our wedding.

Kim Praast Photography was truly one of the best choices we made when planning the wedding. My fiance and I found Kim online and fell in love with her art immediately. She was the only vendor we went with that we did not know and did not know anyone who knew, so it was a big... Read More decision. We knew though when we met her that she was the perfect person to capture the memories that will last us a lifetime. From the initial meeting to the hours we spent having her take engagement shots to the wedding day, it was obvious that Kim is both an artist and proffessional. It's a tough thing to straddle, but Kim does it with humor and grace. Kim was super fun to work with, she put us at ease and deftly managed our cameral shyness and lack of patience with posing for those torturous family shots. Kim not only took great pictures, but she chose very well and edited like a champ to produce about a zillion photos that flattered everyone in them. She made us look really good! Then she created gorgeous books that were the BEST gifts ever for our parents (who also love Kim by the way). Everything happened in a timely, stress free and friendly way and resulted in photos and memories that will make my family smile for the rest of our lives. DO NOT HESITATE to book Kim Praast Photography, you will be lucky to get her and glad you did!

Kim is nothing short of spectacular!! A good wedding photographer basically comes down to what? Being easy to work with and taking great photos—Kim did both with flying colors! From the first time we met with her in Starbucks six months before our wedding, we knew she was... Read More exactly what we were looking for. She executed the day perfectly! The last thing we wanted was spending half our wedding posing for photos instead of actually celebrating the day together. Kim was so great about keeping the photos moving along, while still managing to take all the shots we wanted- ranging from more traditional family portraits, to some great outdoor shots of just the two of us, to really fun, hilarious photos from the dance floor. Strangely, I don't really remember seeing Kim during the reception, but she still managed to take so many photos of our guests, it was like she was everywhere all at once. Most important, the end product was everything and more promised and expected. We have countless beautiful, creative, emotional, real, personality and atmosphere capturing pictures that we will treasure forever. In fact, I'm in the process of making an album for my parents and it's actually hard because there are so many great photographs. I spent so much time planning the wedding, particularity important to me were the small personal details (DIY projects, signs, centerpieces) and she took the most amazing shots of all of it. Looks like they came out of the Knot. And the reaction from my friends and family after seeing the photos was incredible, I'm still hearing compliments about how amazing they turned out. Just of the few of the emails we received after sending the photos "Wow!!!!  Beautiful!!!" (groom's mom); "We love the photos.  They are very artistic. Kim captured the charm of the evening perfectly.  There are so many good ones that it will be tough to select the keepers" (my dad); "Wow!  I'm blown away!  I cannot get over how perfectly your photographer captured everything about your wedding.  The details she photographed are incredible!!!  And you and John couldn't look any more beautiful, happy, glowing, content, natural.... just so special :) I hope you are loving the pictures... I could look at them all night!!  I will again in the morning to see which are my new favorites.  I'll start writing them down so we can compare notes :)" (my best friend); "Love, love, love the pictures!  You look absolutely gorgeous!  And she was really able to capture the essence of the day" (my sister-in-law) We feel so lucky to have found her! 

Fantastic results, highly professional, very reasonable prices — and *great* for GLBT couples

Reviewed on 10/27/2014

Summary: Kim Praast photographed my beach wedding in Narragansett, RI in early September 2014. In short, I highly recommend Kim: she produces fantastic results, is highly professional, and has very reasonable rates (especially considering the high-quality results). More... Read More details are below — but the long and short of it is that Kim was reliable, flexible, cordial, and cost-effective. Background: My (now) husband and I, as a gay couple, wanted to make sure that all of our vendors were not only OK with GLBT people but embraced them. Kim certainly did. She was such a pleasure to work with on an interpersonal level. Both my (now) husband and I live outside of RI and we are both quite busy with work. Kim made it very easy to coordinate from afar. We felt so comfortable with her that we did not even have to meet with her in person before the wedding ceremony. Kim was very responsive to our queries, which was helpful given that we weren't going to have a chance to meet in person beforehand. Technical skills: 5 out of 5 For a lesser photographer, our wedding could have been somewhat hard to capture in photographs for three reasons: (1) we got married on a beach; (2) our wedding day had a lot of cloud cover; and (3) we had very specific expectations of what the photographs should look like and who needed to be photographed. Kim deftly navigated all of these issues. The resulting images are gorgeous. She used the cloud cover to our advantage; she efficiently took all of the pre-ceremony photos that we wanted (we gave her an incredibly long and detailed checklist, which she graciously went through); and she did an extraordinary job of capturing the beach elements (including fire pits at night) as well as the indoor elements. Our friends and family praised Kim's photos of the dancing during the reception, as she used a particular lens that accentuated the kinetic movement on the dance floor. Professionalism: 5 out of 5 Kim was on time and efficient, and she deeply respected our time. She was highly professional and yet also very warm and cordial. Numerous guests noted that she was such a delightful presence to have at the wedding. Also, my (now) husband and I are very private individuals. We didn't want our photos plastered all over the Web. Kim worked with us to modify the contract to ensure that it met our objectives. Price: 5 out of 5 Wedding photos can be expensive. Kim's were incredibly reasonable. We discussed our budget with her and she was receptive to figuring out a way to try to make it work. And she did — beautifully! A note for GLBT couples: My (now) husband and I encountered many potential wedding vendors. When we got married, RI had had marriage equality only for about 400 days. Some other vendors were not attuned to GLBT couples; for instance, numerous contracts that we received said the "bride" and "groom". Not necessarily a big issue — but still. To be fair, in large part RI vendors were relatively GLBT-friendly. In this respect, though, Kim was particularly amazing: you can tell that she doesn't just pay lip service to having GLBT clients; she *really* enjoys working with them. I highly recommend Kim to any couple, but perhaps especially to GLBT couples. She is a real find.
