From the very beginning Katie showed a level of care for me that I greatly appreciated. I tried to stay the calm level headed bride throughout the entire planning process but as the day got closer, I started getting a little stressed. I met with Katie to walk through her scheduling needs as well as what all the other vendors would be doing. By the time the meeting was done (and by meeting I mean bride therapy!) I was calm again! I was totally convinced the day would be perfect.
She was engaging with my entire family at the wedding. She made every family member feel important and welcomed in the photo experience. Unfortunately right before my wedding my cousin passed away unexpectedly. Katie was fantastic in helping make everyone comfortable and included while also being sensitive of the situation. She even snapped some candid shots of my aunt and uncle dancing and laughing together at the reception – Something we hadn’t seen since the funeral. The thought and effort to capture that candid moment meant more to my family than the formal church photos!
She even helped my Maid of Honor with the 27 bustle points on my dress!!
She was efficient and aware of our time table on the day of but I never felt rushed. She was very professional and patient with our slightly challenging church coordinators.
I honestly can’t say enough about my experience with Kate Marie. We looked and interviewed other photographers and as cheesy as this sounds – I didn’t get the warm and fuzzies like I did when we met with Katie.
Katie was referred through a friend, and has since become a friend. She helped make our wedding day incredible and we would use her again in a second. She is amazingly talented, was assertive and efficient in a polite and fun way, and captured each important moment with artistry and creativity. Would highly recommend!!
Kate did a wonderful job with our engagement pictures! She turned our pictures into an awesome guest book where people could give us advice for our future and write fun little memories of us and we had so many compliments on our guest book.
Kate also did our programs and invitations. They were exactly how I wanted them, and Kate was very patient while I kept changing my mind on the invitations
If she had been available to do our day-of pictures, I would have booked her!

We had AMAZING pictures. Katie came early and left late. She brought and extra photographer with her so we ended up having 3 different angles to every picture! It was excellent and the cost was excellent. We recieved 6 hours of coverage from 2 photographers–though we ended up with 3!–, an 8×10 album and full copyrights with a cd of all the photos for almost $800 less than many of the other photographers we had researched. And many of her pics were better than any others we saw. She is very flexible and had many other packages which are all listed on the website. I would STRONGLY recommend her as a photographer for any event, but especially weddings! She is OUTSTANDING!!
Thank you Katie… oh my goodness, thank you so much!!!! I have literally been staring at the blog again and again and again all evening!!! I love how they turned out!!
Naomi and I are waiting to board our plane to Mexico and we just wanted to thank you before we left. Our photography experience with you was absolutely amazing!! We are so grateful. You knew what you were doing, you were quick, and creative. You helped make our wedding perfect! We can’t wait to see the picks and know they’ll be great! Thanks again!
