Perfect photographers for your perfect day
KatMa Photography were amazing. Kat and Ryan were fantastic and easy people to work with. My wife and I hired them for our engagement shoot and our wedding day, and they definitely exceeded our expectations.Sent on 03/24/2020
We came across KatMa Photography on Instagram. Their photos appeared a lot more natural and seemed to capture the moment -- which is what we were looking for in our pictures. A lot of photographers we looked at seemed too "dreamy." When I look back at the pictures now, I feel like I am reliving that moment. Prior to our engagement shoot and wedding, we had several phone meetings to discuss our preferences and what we were looking for with our pictures.
For our engagement shoot, we went to two locations. The weather was less than ideal, but making due with what we had, the pictures turned out great. My wife and I are not great at posing in front of the camera; however, Kat's energy made us feel comfortable and posing for the camera became easier to do.
For our wedding day, they spent nearly the whole day with us and the wedding party. Despite the wedding party being quite inebriated, they worked with us and got a lot of great shots on and off the script. They were good at keeping us in check regarding time and what shots we would and wouldn't be able to get.
Their pictures came quicker than anticipated, and they more than delivered. The website they make is easy to use, and you are able to extract photos individually or as a whole album to your platform of choice.
Overall, we highly recommend KatMa Photography. They made sure to capture exactly what we wanted. They were worth every single penny. If we were to every re-marry, they would be the first choice of photographers :).

Quick responses, diligent photo taking
My friend had recommended Kat for our wedding photographer. I had researched other photographers too, but ended up choosing Kat for her artistic style of photos, which also seem to feature your personality too! I haven't received the photos yet, but from the wedding day, I was SUPER pleased with how she ran things. All the family photos were done FAST, and all the combos you could never even think of. She has a loud directing voice, which is perfect for being diligent with getting people in/out of photos. I think we have photos with everyone!Sent on 07/08/2020
Kat also went with the flow of the day. She was able to seek out rare moments and opportunities on the fly - for ex, she suggested to do the First Look photos on the closed street next to our hotel.
I had also thrown a lot of ideas at her regarding locations prior to the wedding day for wedding party photos, first look, etc. and she was very honest ("not the best for lighting," "will be crowded with people," "not enough time," etc.) which I really appreciated. For bridal getting ready photos, she had ideas ready and told us what to do (funny, entertaining way), which I liked b/c it's awkward not knowing what to do in a photo!!
Personality wise, she's also hilarious. Would highly recommend Kat for your wedding photographer!!

Vendor turned FRIEND
We knew that finding the right photographer for the wedding would be crucial, so we were pretty nervous when selecting one. We were referred to Kat through a relative's wedding, and we couldn't be happier. Kat was amazing to work with. She's sincere, enthusiastic, and witty. We had a blast at our engagement shoot. Somehow she was able to take two awkward people and make us look like models! By the day of our wedding, she no longer felt like our vendor, but like one of our beloved guests. We love our pictures and will cherish them for the rest of our lives. Thank you, Kat!Sent on 01/10/2020
