Fun, Creative, Flexible, and Incredibly Talented

We looked at a lot of photographers for our wedding. Kathy was recommended through our planner, and we went with her because we felt like her energy and personality were what we were looking for...not to mention her incredible talent for photography! From early planning to our engagement shoot and finally through the wedding and final delivery of photos, we were blown away by her creativity, talent, and the FUN that she brings to taking pictures (particularly as we're more camera-shy). Kathy will not only make the experience an absolute blast (definitely recommend grabbing drinks with her and hearing about all her amazing stories), but she's full of ideas, captures the personality of her subjects, and just generally does a fantastic job and delivers a final product you will marvel over. Thank you, Kathy!!

A wonderful photographer and person

Kathy is amazing!!! We reached out to her when our original photographer bailed on us as we tried to switch gears to an elopement and postpone our original wedding due to Covid. Kathy is so friendly and immediately put us at ease. She helped us organize our elopement and scout locations in DC. She also included an engagement shoot in Ellicott City (where my husband and I met) when she found out we never had one. Her demeanor, kindness, and talent are so wonderful that we also booked her for our postponed wedding this past weekend. She helped calm my nerves when I was freaking out due to traffic from the Secret Service closing streets as we were returning from first look portraits (typical DC), quickly took over in making sure everything ran smoothly and on schedule, and corralled both our families. Not to mention her amazing photography skills. She did so much more than we ever thought possible, including killing a stink bug in my bouquet. We love Kathy so much and cannot wait to work with her again in the future!

Fantastic engagement session!

Kathy is the absolute best! My fiancée and I had our engagement shoot and from the beginning of the process to the end we were in great hands. Kathy did a Zoom call with us when we reached out and immediately put us at ease, getting the details of our story and helping us pick out the best locations (plural!) for our shoot. We took some pics at Gravelly Point Park in DC – the site of one of our first dates – with a classic shot of an airliner flying right over our lovestruck heads. Then we headed to Annapolis for some downtown shots and what we planned would be some sunset shots on the beach. When it suddenly started downpouring, we ended our session and agreed to try to find another day to come back. As we were driving away, the rain slowed and the most beautiful full rainbow appeared in the sunset’s glow. Kathy called us to tell us to turn around and meet her at a cute little waterfront park with an absolutely BEAUTIFUL backdrop of a double rainbow dipping into the bay. She even got down into the water to capture our love from a perfect angle. Our pictures looked like a postcard. 
When my fiancée mentioned that the rain stopped us from wearing a couple of the outfits we had brought, Kathy agreed to meet us at another park a few days later for another session. She knew exactly where to get the best pics, and how to use lighting and nature to bring out our best features.

The whole time, Kathy was friendly, fun and just easy to talk to. We enjoyed every minute of our session – and LOVED the pictures when we got them a couple days later. Thanks Kathy!
