    Choosing Katie as our wedding photographer was such an easy decision. When we first met with Katie, she was so prepared and made us feel so much more at ease regarding the whole wedding process. We loved looking through the photo albums that she made for previous clients, and it made us so excited to know that we could get our own as well. We first worked with her for our engagement photos, and Katie was such a trooper! We wanted some winter engagement photos, and the day we picked for our photos turned out to be way below zero! It was absolutely freezing, but Katie planned the photos and locations so well, and we had so much fun that we didn't even notice how cold we were! For our wedding photos, I can't even begin to describe how amazing Katie and the second photographer she brought with her was. They made the whole day so easy for us, especially when we had so many other things on our minds. Katie was so respectful, but also was able to coordinate all of our family and bridal party members well so that the photos went quickly and smoothly. Everyone was so impressed with how smoothly and easy the photos went. My husband and I are not great with posing for photos, but Katie knew exactly what looked good, and made us feel so relaxed and kept it fun. Our wedding also was way behind schedule and Katie was so understanding and made sure she stayed until after the first dances were over, and captured a few photos of everyone dancing. We can't thank her enough for everything she did for us. And finally, the photos are absolutely GORGEOUS!! We love them so much, and can't stop going through them. Her photos captured our entire day perfectly, and we really could not have asked for more.

    Katie was amazing! I am very picky with my pictures and she was very open minded to capture exactly what I wanted. She took the time to understand what we wanted and did a wonderful job. She did not just do our engagement picture, but our wedding pictures as well and they were terrific! Always on time, very easy to work with and provided a great environment so the sessions were fun and light!

    Top-notch and timeless

    Choosing Katie as our wedding photographer was a no-brainer! If other couples are looking for a photographer who is accommodating, pays attention to detail, keeps you on a timeline, and is professional, Katie is it!
    She was willing to work with us and find a photography package that we were comfortable with in our budget. She also helped us shape our timeline for the big day, and made sure that we kept to the schedule when needed! Katie is great at paying attention to small details, such as making sure all bridesmaids bouquets are even, and that necklaces and ties are correctly oriented. These little details take her pictures from 100% to 120%! Oh, not to mention, she was willing to drive from Minneapolis to Madison for our engagement pictures and wedding! :)
    Katie's photographs are timeless, and we will cherish them for decades to come! Highly recommend Katie Thering Photography!

    After seeing how effortlessly Katie was able to capture a close friend's wedding, we set up a coffee meeting to chat and browse some of her previous work. Right away we could tell that Katie had this intuitive ability to connect with us about the vibe we wanted and some of our favorite (and not so favorite) kinds of poses. She just seemed to 'get' who we were as a couple and what we were going for - and somehow she helped my husband overcome his fear of being goofy in public. During our engagement shoot in St Anthony Main, Katie's spontaneity and ability to adjust on the fly allowed us to get some incredible shots! But where Katie really stands apart, in our opinion, is in her sense for how to use lighting to add complexity and dynamism and mood to a photo. We are so thrilled with our photos and couldn't more highly recommend Katie as a photographer for your special day. Thanks again, Katie!! Natalie & JB

    Katie was so perfect for our wedding. She worked with everything we asked of her and had so many great ideas for us. The photos turned out fantastic and we would happily recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!

    Katie is an absolutely fantastic photographer and truly wonderful to work with! I would recommend her to everyone looking for a wedding photographer! Katie is very personable making the photoshoots super enjoyable. She always made both me and my husband feel very comfortable when taking photos so the photos turned out great and looking very natural and genuine. She went above and beyond to help us meet all of our photography goals whether that be to get the entire extended families together to take a huge group photo or to travel extra distance to allow us to have our engagement photo shoot take place on the city where we first met and fell in love. When we got our photos back both my husband and I as well as our family and friends raved about how well the photos had turned out! I definitely plan to go to Katie for all of our photo needs in the future; I simply couldn鈥檛 imagine working with anyone else :) Thank you Katie!!

    Katie was the only wedding photographer we looked at and right after talking with her we knew she was the one! She is very relaxed even when the schedule on the big day was running behind! She will get you all the shots you want, the classics, the fun ones, and all the ones that you will be showing your family for years to come. We could not have asked for better and really, for all the work that she has done and all the beautiful photos she has given us she is worth much more than we paid! She is so kind and truly wants you to feel comfortable and relaxed! We didn't feel like we had to pose for pictures because we were having so much fun!!!

    Whenever I look at my pictures she took of me and my husband on our Wedding Day, I feel like I am reliving the whole day again!! Katie is affordable, super sweet, has LOTS of ideas (I am super shy and don't really know what "good" poses are!) and took over 1200 pictures that day! Both posed and lots of candid!

    You will not regret it if you go with her on your wedding day!

    As the mother of the bride, I was a bit nervous for my daughter and her husband-to-be. They are both shy and don鈥檛 enjoy being the center of attention. However, Katie met with them prior to taking any photos. She discussed with them what they wanted in their engagement and wedding photos. She listened to what they wanted and also made suggestions to offer more possibilities for the perfect pictures. Having Katie take their engagement photos helped my daughter and her husband feel comfortable and at ease with Katie. On the day their wedding, Katie and her assistant spent the entire day with our families. Because there were two photographers, they were literally able to be in two places at one time. When we received the proofs, we were so pleased at the results. Katie sent us nearly 2000 proofs. I spent hours looking through the photos and reliving that day that seemed to fly by in seconds. It was so fun to see things that in the hustle and bustle of the day I hadn鈥檛 even see happen. And even more impressive was the fact that in EVERY picture, EVERY person was smiling. It was a true testament to the joy of the day. We will treasure these pictures forever and are so grateful to Katie for her keen eye and ability to capture that joy.

    I looked literally for weeks for the perfect photographer. I immediately knew that Katie Thering was the photographer I wanted when I stumbled onto some of the pictures she had taken of another couple at our venue. The pictures were stunning. The angles, light and use of of the architectural detail pulled you in and you could just feel the emotion in the room. The day of our wedding was busy as you might expect and Katie was there and captured every moment just perfectly. The pictures of the actual wedding exceeded my wildest dreams and the pictures that we took outside after the wedding were even better than I could have imagined. I feel so lucky we found Katie. The pictures she took for us are completely priceless and will remind us of our special day for the rest of our lives. Thank you, Katie!!!

    katie & gene are amazing - it is so great to have 2 photographers at your wedding. not just two different eyes but two different creative geniuses! they each have their different view points of each shot and capture such a variety of things.

    they really are 'artists' as their pictures capture exactly what you are looking for!

    I cannot say enough great things about Katie and Gene'o from Kage Imagery. They did our engagement photos, guest book, and wedding photos. I show the pictures off to anyone I can because they're so amazing. I continuely get compliments from family, friends, collegues, and even people I've never met before on how our pictures are the best they've ever seen before. Katie and Gene'o have a wonderful creative eye and work well together to capture unforgetable memories. They are extrememly talented and were so much fun to work. I strongly recommend Kage Imagery to anyone!

    I can't say enough about the Kage Imagery Team. The photos of our wedding give a true depiction of the whole experience. They shot our engagement session, wedding and reception. Katie and Gene-O came prepared with ideas yet were flexible for things that just popped up. Our whole wedding party and families felt totally at ease with them. They were like "guests" rather than "The Photographers."
