Working with Katie was a dream. Literally. We connected with Katie at our engagement shoot earlier in the year and I knew she was the right choice. Her spunky yet calming personality put both my husband and me at ease throughout our entire day. We would both say that our time with Katie for our post-ceremony portraits was one of the highlights of our day. We had so much fun walking the streets of LA and letting Katie’s imagination create the most beautiful pictures. She has a way with people, and she has a way with her camera that work magically together.

We used Katie for our September wedding in Camarillo. From start to finish she was the perfect fit for us. We started off doing engagement photos with her and she let us drag her down to Palos Verdes to take some ocean side photos. One requirement of our venue was the all vendors had to have a camarillo business license. Katie was awesome in working with our venue to get this license and we just really appreciated her taking this extra step for us and doing it so willingly. When the day of our wedding came, Katie was on time and she slipped seamlessly into the day. She came to the hotel where everyone was getting ready and started taking awesome pictures without direction from us which was exactly what a busy bride and groom need! She left for the venue before us and was able to scope out all the sweet picture spots and get some great detail shots before all guests arrived. Then during both our first look and ceremony Katie was able to get amazing images of us and our family, but what I really appreciated was that she also was able to blend into the background. She got all the shots without getting in our faces and distracting us from the moment. Also, both of our families raved about how nice Katie was! Which was a really awesome bonus and not something we ever expected from a photographer. They just thought she was really nice and she was willing to take all the shots anyone wanted. She is great at going with the flow and let us just run around our venue getting the perfect shot. We seriously could not recommend Katie enough. She is both an extremely talented photographer while also just being an amazingly kind and wonderful person.

My bride and I want to thank Katie so much for the job she did during one of the most important moments of our lives. She helped us begin our journey, and it wasn’t with just photos. You could feel her ENERGY AND GENUINENESS throughout the process. You would think we had known each for years. My bride and I are just so grateful for her HEART, which was on display through the entire process....and that meant more than anything.
