Erin & Jeff 2014

Katie Kaizer is so incredibly talented. Her work stands apart from others as she has the ability to capture the emotions of those she is photographing which is priceless when you look back on your wedding day/engagement/family portrait session photos. Her journalistic style tells a story. Not only does she capture her subjects living in the moment, but also has this unique eye to take advantage of surrounding elements and landscapes and builds these into the pictures.

Katie is very professional and organized. She was super responsive any time we had questions on the upcoming day and even met with us in person to gain an understanding of how we wanted her to capture our day as well as developed a timeline that worked best for us. She is great at scoping out locations to shoot and will find locations that work best based on how the weather is behaving (for example, when she photographed our family portrait session the night before the wedding, it was really windy and she found a spot for us that worked best where we were protected from the wind). She also found really unique spots that allowed her to capture the best light (for our engagement photos, she suggested the evening so we could take advantage of the sunset). When I look at the wedding photos, I don’t even remember Katie taking the candid photos as she has a very non-obtrusive/non-distracting style (for example, the first look with my dad, the ceremony itself, first dances, toasts).

Katie is such a positive and fun person and this really made our day extra special. When you meet her, you will feel like you have known her your whole life. She has a passion for what she does and it clearly shows in her interactions with others and in her photos. We have received so many compliments from our friends and family on these photos. Katie captured our day perfectly. Check out her blog and you will see how incredible her work is.”
