Kim was my wedding photographer back in 2012. Although I already knew Kim and knew of her many talents, when I received the pictures after the wedding they were more amazing then I could have ever imagined. She knows what she is doing and she does it well! She will make your picturing taking experience fun and something you will never forget. She will make you feel comfortable and beautiful which in return brings out the most natural and beautiful pictures! She will work her butt off for you and provide you with pictures that you get to treasure for the rest of your life! I believe Kim is one of the bests and will always recommend her for not only weddings but any type of photography you are looking for! I love her!
I have had the privilege of being in front of Kim's camera on multiple occasions, first for portraiture and after as the member of a wedding party. Kim has the ability to make anyone feel beautiful and at ease in any environment. She is kind, funny, and extremely talented. I will recommend her work over and over again! You are making the best decision for yourself and your event with hiring her.
We are so glad we chose Kim to photograph our wedding! She took beautiful, creative photos that were exactly what I was hoping for. Kim is incredibly professional while still putting you completely at ease and making you feel comfortable. I would highly recommend her!
Kim is exactly what you want in a photographer. She talks to you, listens, and guides you through the process to get the most amazing photos. I personally did a boudoir shoot with her and she was amazing. It was a very scary and vulnerable thing for me and Kim knew exactly what to do to make me comfortable and get such amazing pictures. I'm not super comfortable in front of the camera and she talked me through every detail, constant having me adjust my body to get the great shots. She is truely an amazing artist and a beautiful soul. I really got the sense she loves what she does and truely tries to capture the soul in the frame. Since shooting I've had a baby so my body definitely doesn't look the same. I am so glad I had Kim capture that moment in time. Not only do I have fabulous pictures but also the amazing conversations I had with Kim were life lessons. She has such a beautiful soul and she shows that through her photography. I only wish o had hired her for our wedding. You will not regret hiring her for any event!
Kim is not just a photographer--she is a visionary, a master, a listener, an actor, a leader, and a valuable member of the team. Yes, she's all of these at once. We first had Kim photograph our engagement, then our wedding, and then my pregnancy (not to mention some boudoir inbetween). We are looking forward to family photos to come. Not only does she have an amazing eye for the right frame, but she edits the photos to look flawless and natural. She also takes the time to get to know you and and learn what you want to build trust. One of my favorite things to date is the collection of images she put to music on video of our wedding--it tells a story I could not have known being caught up in the day and I cherish it so very much. Her images are breathtaking, she is great to work with, and I could not provide a higher recommendation.
People tend to have grand, unrealistic ideas about their wedding-mainly the cost and time constraints, in my opinion. Any wedding organization resource will tell you to make a top 3 list of what's most important to you, and spend the majority of your budget on those things. They are right. The photographer was high on my list, pictures are what you have years later when memories are starting to fade. Plus, how often in your life are you wearing an amazing dress and paying to have your hair and makeup done?
I can't say I shopped around for a photographer, I met Kim a few years before my wedding and felt such an instant rapport and love for her aesthetic I didn't feel the need to contact anyone else. She will listen to your ideas and give a frank assessment of what's possible within your budget and timeline. She will graciously handle difficult relatives and intoxicated guests. She will help guide you and your significant other to have natural expressions on your face. Most importantly, she will provide you with amazing photos you can stare at for years to come.
Kim has an excellent eye that captures just the right moment. Her photos are truly something special!
Kim was the of the first professional photographers I've done a photoshoot with. She made the shoot so comfortable for me and was very understanding that I haven't had much experience. Her photos always amaze me when I see them no matter the style. She provides me with so much knowledge and never ceases to amaze me with her ideas! I absolutely love Kim as a photographer and as a person. I will continue to work with her as long as I can!
