What past couples have to say….
Be Ready for Anything…
When you have Kathy take your photos, be ready for anything - whether it be climbing into a waterfall, sitting with your feet hanging over the edge on a bridge or hiking into the woods in your wedding dress to find the perfect picture setting. On the drive to our wedding ceremony, I found out it had to be moved inside due to rain. My entire vision for how the day would go was ruined. Kathy was incredibly reassuring and told me she would make it work... And make it work she did. I let her take control and am so glad I did. The pictures came out better than I could have planned or imagined. Working with Kathy is an incredible adventure and I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone.
Made sure our day ran smoothly...
Kathy is the absolute best to work with - she is fun, flexible, organized, adventurous, and fantastically creative and talented. I knew when hiring Kathy that our pictures would be amazing, but what I didn't realize was how influential Kathy was going to be in making sure our entire day ran smoothly. She had a plan which efficiently and seamlessly got us and our families through the entire day while still remaining easy going, flexible, and super creative. I would hire Kathy a million times over. Working with Kathy was a delight and our pictures were, indeed, amazing.
The Meaning of Epic…
Kathy truly encompasses the meaning of EPIC! From our first meeting, she helped us setup our wedding day timeline and a fabulous engagement shoot. She’s really fun to grab a drink with and talk wedding- bonus! Our pictures are AWESOME! She is so creative and so easy to work with. She's not afraid to try something new and get into the pool, dirt, etc to get the perfect shot. She makes everyone comfortable and not feel like they are posing--it really shows in the photos. Our bridal party had so much fun taking photos on the wedding day. We are so glad our paths crossed, Kathy was the perfect photographer for us! We can't stop looking at our photos over and over!
She Became Part of the Family…
I don't know what to say, so I guess amazing, awesome, and phenomenal will just have to do. Her work speaks for itself, but my husband and are beyond satisfied and extremely happy that we found Kathy. I feel in love with her photos before I feel in love with her. She traveled to Charleston with us and captured every magical moment of our wedding weekend. All of our family and friends LOVED Kathy, she became a part of the family that weekend. She found the perfect light and scouted out the perfect spots to take our photos and even managed to get shots I wanted so badly in a location the venue said I couldn't. She's so adventurous, pays attention to details and knows what's she doing. This is her passion and it shows. Everyone who looked at our pictures have had nothing but compliments, commenting that they looked like a like a fairy tale.
