I am a dog loving mama with a passion for photography. I first saw the beauty of life through a lens back in high-school. I began learning the most basic elements of film by capturing black and white images and developing them in a dark room. Since then, photography has enabled me to show others the beauty of the world through an image that can be captured in an instant. I have traveled to Africa, Germany, and Paris, and photographed everything from PGA championships, to my personal favorite, real life and real love. I feel most at home transforming everyday glimpses of true affection and moments of raw happiness into eternal memories through photography. Two years ago, I lost my husband and it felt as if the camera I had seen life through for so long had reverted back to black and white. Since then I have learned to use my photography to secure life-long memories in vibrant realism. As I bring color and beauty to the lives of others, I return a little bit of that color and beauty to my own life. Sometimes what you see is what you get, but if you look through the right lens, what you see is truly something amazing.

Ksbphoto did a fantastic job at our wedding. Kathleen Buhrmann, owner of ksbphoto, was our friends’ photographer at their wedding the year before and they could not stop raving about her so we had to book her as well. From our first consultation to our last interaction (i.e. photo/canvas orders), Kathleen could not have been any more helpful through her immediate responses, expert advice, and unwavering positive attitude. I cannot think of a single complaint about the services I received from ksbphoto – not one. Kathleen produced amazing wedding photographs for us by making us feel utterly at ease (and neither my husband nor I are the least bit photogenic). She even uploaded a preview of our photos (and then our entire set) within a very short period of time. Kathleen was also so wonderful and flexible when we decided to alter our package just a few days before our wedding, reaffirming our decision to go with ksbphoto. Honestly, everything turned out perfectly! Oh, and our package included DVDs containing our entire wedding day photos, which were perfectly personalized illustrating ksbphoto’s attention to detail. And although you could easily order your own prints through the DVDs, I would highly recommend ordering professional quality prints and canvases through her vendor; the prints we ordered were beautiful and the canvases turned out to be the perfect keepsakes. All in all, if you are looking for flawless, professional photography service and expert results, ksbphoto is it.Sent on 01/21/2013

Kathleen was an amazing addition to our vendor team. She is super flexible and always willing to answer questions. Our engagement pictures were AMAZING. When our wedding day came around, I was not surprised at all to find that she was punctual, smiling, and got straight to work. We got our wedding photos back in record time -- way before the contract said we would. And they are all amazing. Even with uncooperative children, Kathleen still managed to capture the day beautifully. I will cherish our photos forever. Thank you Kathleen!!!Sent on 08/01/2017

Update: Kathleen shot our wedding at the beginning of October and once again she was the BEST to work with! She was so kind and patient with all of our crazy family members and was the best at directing the show. I was so confident with her around because I knew how professional she is. We just saw some of our "sneak peek" that she posted and the pictures are amazing! I can't wait to see more! You should consider yourself lucky if you get to book Kathleen and ksbphoto.Sent on 09/13/2015
Kathleen has been absolutely amazing so far! As an out of town bride, I have been living and dying by email and phone communication. Kathleen is always quick to respond and accommodate me. My fiancé and I will be flying into the Chicagoland area next month to visit family and Kathleen was willing to work around her schedule to set up a time to do our engagement shoot! She has truly been absolutely amazing. I can't think of anyone else I'd rather work with!
