Kat is THE BEST photographer! I was extremely thorough on finding an amazing photographer for my wedding because I will never have that day back again. Kat is very professional, punctual, and just a good human being in general. She has done hundreds of weddings (not sure if this is fact but seems like it) and understands how to capture all the best and fun moments of your big day. She suggested our engagement photo session at Fort Point and almost a year later, I still hear about how amazing our photos came out. She can be as directive as you want or she can take a back seat and let you lead. She is soooo flexible and will cater her services to your needs! Out of all the photographers I interviewed, she was not the least expensive nor the most. I would say her packages are more than fair. She is SUPER responsive to texts and emails (i am not a caller) and always shows up early to sessions. During my wedding day, she called me a couple weeks ahead so we can map out a timeline of the day so she does not miss a moment to capture. This process was a breath of fresh air and on the big day, there was no last min scramble. Also on my wedding day, I was freaking out because I forgot to write my husband a letter. My bridesmaids were busy getting ready and drinking but Kat quickly took control of my freakout and got people to find me a pen and paper to write the letter! She totally had my back during my big day and that meant the world to me. I have seen unorganized photographers before and trust me, they miss A LOT. If you do not want this to happen to you, you definitely need to go with Kat. I will be using her on ALL my big life moments - hopefully a maternity shoot soon!

Working with Kat Ma and her team has been amazing. I can't believe her pricing is so reasonable because the quality of her work definitely matches and exceeds the work of people charging 3-4x what she charges.
A friend had been in a wedding that Kat shot in the past, and she said - "this photographer - she gets stuff done!." I'm all about being efficient, so I thought - I like her already! From our first video chat interview (before we chose her), it was clear that she would be our photographer. She had shot at our venue before and pointed out lighting issues to us and knew how to deal with it, and she already had ideas on what to do for our first look photos.
Engagement photos were great, and she got us the photos in less than 48 hours.
When it came to wedding day, she showed up on time and was so on point. She got so many great shots in, was good at making people laugh, and she definitely got things done. She did a lot of mother-daughter shots, which meant the world to my mom, and she did a first look with my bridesmaids, which I had never thought of before, and it was so much fun. She helped move furniture and poured champagne just to make sure we could get stuff done. In the end, we get to do the previously suggested first look shots, and it looked so good.
From the actual wedding, she captured everything, and most amazingly, she got us a sneak peek gallery in LESS THAN 12 HOURS after the wedding! People wait months for photos, and she already had some ready for us the next morning, which was amazing. I keep getting comments on how people love the photos already - she was artistic, creative, and great with lighting.
I'm so glad we went with Kat Ma - she has so much energy and is so great at what she does, and she really did get all the shots we wanted in a short amount of time. We loved working with her !

Kat is amazing.
My friend referred me to Kat for my wedding photographer and I am eternally grateful for her. From the first moment I spoke with Kat, I knew she was the photographer for us. My now-husband is not too comfortable in front of the camera and reminiscent of Chandler when he takes engagement pictures with Monica (sorry Husband, threw you under the bus there), and Kat is so funny and personable that he loved taking photos with her. For our engagement shoot, we brought along our terror of a dog, and Kat was not only was patient with her, but she got some great pictures with her too! (And special thanks to Dorothy for entertaining Navi and for making our engagement shoot so fun!)
All my bridesmaids raved about how awesome Kat was on the wedding day, and our wedding planner noted how great she was as well. Kat is extremely creative and thinks of wonderful ideas on the fly, which makes shooting really fun with her! We had a destination wedding in Kauai, Hawaii, and I cannot wait to see all the pictures!
I was really sad when our wedding was over because it meant that I wouldn’t be able to hang out with Kat soon. :( I really cannot say how much I loved working with Kat, she is AMAZING and you should book her ASAP for your wedding!
Kat Ma is a great photographer with a creative mind. Her photo's will blow you away!
