My husband and I had an amazing experience with Kate. She listened to everything we wanted, she responded almost immediately to every email we sent and had the unbelievably impressive quality of being exactly where we needed her the whole day. She was invisible until I wanted her and then she was always right next to me.Sent on 09/16/2018
The pictures she took captured the wedding perfectly. The day went so fast and I was so busy that I looked back and really wanted something to show me what it felt like and her pictures did exactly that. They're beautifully composed and extremely flattering and she somehow makes them all seem candid but so perfect it's as if we were posing. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone, she made everything so easy and blended in perfectly while controlling the crowds as needed. She also took the time to scout ahead a beautiful place for sunset shots for me and my new husband! Our whole experience with her was above and beyond--my husband hates getting his photo taken and never feels flattered by the camera and he raves about her constantly every time it comes up. She was so kind and fun, we had a great time with her all day long.
We also got our photos back so quickly! They're beautifully and subtly edited and she clearly took time with them, but we got back "teasers" a few days after the wedding and the whole batch within two weeks.
Kate Holt Photography's reply:Wow, what kind words Heather! I am so glad Colin felt comfortable and was pleased with the photos we created! You were both stunning and I loved that you were willing to go on a little adventure in my Subaru to find a special location for Sunset Photos! :)

Kate was an absolute joy to work with! When my wife and I began planning our wedding, we shopped around and met with a few photographers, but we didn’t seem to find that spark we were looking for. That all changed, once we met Kate. From our first meeting, I could tell how passionate she was about her craft. She brought a sense of comfort in her confidence, and the ideas she presented were aligned to ours. Her energy, professionalism, and joy is why we instilled our trust in Kate, and we couldn’t be happier about that decision.Sent on 09/16/2019
Like most couples, we went through a few changes leading up to the big day, and Kate was always flexible with us in change.
On the day of our wedding, Kate always seemed 10 steps ahead of us. She knew the schedule front to back, and kept everyone in line. We were really impressed with her ability to lead people with confidence, and have fun doing at the same time. She was always smiling, and there was never a dull moment. It’s clear she truly loves her career in photographer, and why she’s so good at. Our pictures prove that, and we are beyond thrilled of how they turned out. Her photos speak volumes of her craft.
By the end of our wedding, we had many guests come up to us, and say how great of a job Kate did directing the group, and making the evening flow that much easier. When my wife and I decide to do another shoot, there’s no question we would hire Kate in a heartbeat. If you are looking for a photographer with a great personality, reliable, and extremely fun/easy to work with, then look no further. Kate’s your girl!

From the very first meeting, until the end of our wedding night, every detail was absolutely perfect. Dominic was always quick to respond, thoughtful with details, listened to our concerns, and went above and beyond on the wedding day to get the best shots. Worked with our big family, caputured the perfect moments, and made us laugh even when our faces hurt from smiling. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. Highly recommend.Sent on 08/27/2019
