The most important decision I had to make for my wedding day was choosing a photo/video team. I was an out of state bride (live in Seattle but go married in Austin), & did SO much research finding the right fit that within a reasonable budget. After countless phone calls & emails with different teams, something just clicked when I found Double Knot. From beginning to end, they were seamless. Adam & Kayla have this awesome balance of extreme professionalism but also making you feel like they’re friends you’ve known for years. I was comfortable around them and it came through in all of their work. Wedding day was complete chaos as I was finishing up so many last minute things. Adam was there to listen to my crazy banter, and even add in some himself, and somehow his presence actually calmed me down in some of those moments. Kayla has such awesome direction with her photography and really feeds off of your energy. She’s tiny and quietly bopped around getting those amazing candid shots that I know every bride wants. She was like a Prius! She got some shots of me & I didn’t even know she was there.Sent on 06/20/2018
Everything came as promised, on time, & exceeded expectations. They just didn’t tell me how emotional I’d be! Just when I’d see a photo I wanted framed, I’d see another...and another. I will cherish these photos for the rest of my life, but the one thing that I will be able to watch and get all of those wedding day “feels” back with is the Highlight video that Adam created. It’s pure magic. I cannot even begin putting into words how it makes me feel every time I watch it. The abundance of love, joy, sense of family, and our personalities all came through. Photography & videography do so much more than preserve memories. They give you feeling. With each photo I look at, each time I watch the highlight video, I go back to remembering how happy I was on that day. Your creativity and passion is remarkable & any bride is lucky to have you by their side! So grateful for you!

Talented folks and beautiful work
We knew Double Knot from Texas. So when it came time to take some pictures in NYC, both my wife and I were very comfortable being cradled into their capable hands.Sent on 04/19/2019
And they delivered.
Kayla came up to photograph us walking along some of our favorite neighborhoods in our wedding outfits. We did classic wedding shoot things, like laugh and embrace while on a romantic walk. We are also very stupid, so we did kitschy New York City things, like eat processed food from a street vendor and flip off imaginary miscreants. All of these things were captured with a great eye for art and detail, and the pictures we received later on were truly stellar. Add to that the open way Kayla led the session. Modeling for her was so easy and comfortable. It's a skill she excels at, and the beautiful images she delivered speak further to her innumerable talents.
Throughout the mess of working with us and our busy schedules to make a shoot happen, Double Knot was very professional, flexible, understanding, and timely in their communication. They're out to be the best, you can tell. They care. And in a crowded market of memory-makers and storytellers, that can be the difference between taking a chance on someone established or trying your luck with someone who's up and coming. That they have it all together so well seems almost miraculous. And now our memories of that day have a miraculous aura, too.

What a wonderful experience!! Kayla took photos for our Brooklyn elopement last year, and we could not be happier with the result.Sent on 04/22/2019
Kayla was warm and friendly, and made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. She was able to capture our true selves in her photos, and the portfolio she delivered have given us tangible memories we will forever cherish (some of our favorite photos are now framed on our mantle at home, a daily reminder of this day). As a bride, Kayla's photos and direction made me feel confident and beautiful, and she somehow always managed to catch my most flattering angles :) my husband looked great too, of course! ;)
Most importantly, she was able to capture our laughter and our love on our special day. There's always a lot of pressure to picking out your photographer -- honestly your dress can be so-so, and the flowers can be mediocre, but if you don't have beautiful pictures, you'll only be left with the memories in your head. I can safely say that if you hire Double Knot Pictures, you will be looking over your wedding album with your grandkids someday, and feeling just as happy remembering as you did living your wedding day.
