I can always revisit my daughter before she could walk, I can see what my son looked like when he still had his baby teeth. I can remember what our life was like before these two tiny humans completed our family. I have proof that we were here, and we had wonderful life experiences together. The fact that I have a career that allows me to do this for others is not something that is lost on me. I believe very strongly in the power and impact these images we create together have, not only for us, but for all those people we hold close to our hearts. These images will far outlast us, and allow our families to go back and relive a time they forgotten, a time they weren't old enough to remember, or a time that existed before them.
For as long as I can remember I have always loved looking at photo albums. Whether they were mine or not, I loved the ability to visit a time I forgot, a time I wasn't old enough to remember, or one that existed before me. The photograph is a powerful piece of history and our way to experience the world. As a wife and mother, the importance of this has become even stronger. I want these times in our lives documented so that as I get older, and my children get older, we have the ability to go back in time. I get to relive my wedding day with my husband, as well as my children. I see the excitement and happiness that not only the two of us shared that day, but all of our family and friends who helped us celebrate the beginning of our forever. I love that!
I had reviewed many photographers before choosing a few to meet in person. Full disclosure, Kate's photos were my favorite from day one. But when my husband and I met her, we knew she was the right person to document our wedding day. She welcomed us into her home and treated us like old friends. She got to know us, our style, and our personalities. We loved our engagement photos, and we loved our wedding photos. Working with Kate on our wedding day was great. The whole wedding party loved her. She is a true artist who takes pride in her work and wants to share it with you.
Her photos are truly unique and she finds the most creative places to take photos with such a stunning effect. My whole family constantly raved about how great she was and comfortable she made everyone feel. She's not just another vendor at your wedding, but an honorary guest.
Our engagement photos were great, but wow, our wedding photos are gorgeous!!! Not only were the photos great, but having Kate along for the ride on our wedding day was truly a pleasure. By the end of the day, she knew everyone in the wedding party by name and really made it feel like she was another friend in the group and not someone who was being paid to be there.
I cannot begin to express how grateful we are for choosing Kate for our wedding photos. We knew we didn't want anyone but the best to capture the story of our important day. She captured the fun moments, the romantic and special moments, the ones we never want to forget. And we won't have to. We'll have those forever.
Kate is kind, talented and an absolute joy to be around. Her easy going nature made shooting with her a breeze. She has a way of making you forget about the camera and just enjoy the moment. Kate was everything I wanted in a photographer and more. I can't thank her enough for capturing our special day.
