We used Kate Fine Art Photography for our DC Wedding and the pictures are beautiful. Truly professional and high quality. Prior to the wedding, the planning was professional and helpful keeping stress to a minimum. Kate is an accomplished photographer we a keen eye and artistic style. She is also flexible and professional. She made us feel at ease and that we could craft the kind of special event we wanted.
It all went off without a hitch and we all had a great time. I was so impressed, would definitely recommend Kate Fine Art Photography for your DC wedding.

I had my wedding at Newton White Mansion. Kate was my wedding photographer. the pictures were beautiful. She captured every emotion, laughter, and moment of my wedding in my wedding pictures. In fact, the wedding pictures themselves tell a story of the day -- it was day filled with love and happiness from family and friends and shared with me and my husband. I think there is a saying - a picture is worth a thousdand words -meaning that all the emotions and excitement of that day was conveyed in these pictures. Thank you Kate!

Kate is an amazing photographer with a great personality. I was so impressed by her ability to coordinate photographs with my huge (and often, unruly) family. She answered questions professionally and kindly, and even traveled to a favorite place in Baltimore to take our wedding photos there. Her prices are extremely reasonable (charges by the hour - unusual for a wedding photographer!), and she recommended a fabulous videographer for us! We are so thrilled that Kate was able to capture our wedding - not only did we enjoy working with her on the wedding day, but the photos are so wonderful. We've already received tons of compliments.

Gorgeous album, fantastic memories, amazing photographer, and delightful person to work with are just a few of the descriptions that come to mind when thinking of Kate Fine Art. Kate was extremely responsive leading up to and through the wedding, and she made everything a breeze and picture perfect. This included expertise in areas that even exceeded photography, from pinning corsages, placement of people, and capturing some extremely artful moments that we now get to enjoy for a lifetime. Whether having the perfect statement to get the whole group to smile, or seeming to be invisible so that even some of the more honest moments would be captured, I could not have dreamed to have better pictures to capture this day.

Additionally, her personality is simply perfect. She is easy to communicate with, professional, and all around fun; she even made some of the most tedious "portrait" times enjoyable. I also highly recommend the album she puts together. Yes, the pictures are amazing in their own original state, but she has a way with layout and design with the book and puts it together in professional high quality books that I could never attempt to do myself. I'm so happy I selected the albums, they are beautiful and of high quality.

There are no adequate words to describe how fabulous Kate is!! She is real, down to earth, and her pictures are to die for!! From our engagement photos through our wedding day, Kate was incredible. She truly captured the essence of us, and our wedding, and we couldn't be happier. Our wedding party and family members were beyond impressed..they couldn't stop telling us how great she was and what a wonderful fit she was. I would HIGHLY recommend Kate, thank you for everything!

There is seriously nothing else I can say about Kate except that she is perfect. I seriously would not have been happy with any other photographer! The moment my husband and I met her, we knew she was the photographer for us. Her photographs are amazing and her personality makes you feel like her best friend. My photographs from my wedding are everything I imagined. If you want amazing service, pictures, and experience on your wedding day...choose Kate! We are so happy our wedding planner recommended her! :)

I'm incredibly happy that we chose to use Kate as our wedding photographer. My husband has known Kate for quite a few years and suggested we use her because he HATES having his picture taken and would feel more comfortable using someone he knew. She did an amazing job making him feel relaxed during the engagement session. During the wedding, we never knew she was there and captured all the pictures we could have asked for. Her energy and enthusiasm made for some great shots of us, our family and our friends.
Everyone was commenting on how great she was and my sister is already booking her for their family photos in the fall.
We loved how she took the time to sit down with us and get an idea of our style and expectations. She made the planning process sooo easy for us. She was always available for questions and accommodating to any changes we needed to make.

My husband and I had so much fun with Kate - she made both the engagement photo session and wedding day memorable.

I met Kate at my friends wedding a few years ago (she was the photographer). I loved her photos and her personality so much that I knew she was the photographer I wanted for my wedding. In fact, we coordinated with her schedule when booking the wedding date.

Leading up to the big day (and well even after) Kate was so easy to work with, very thorough, patient and always prompt in responding to an inquiry.

Kate is so energetic and positive and she truly captures great photos. She will do whatever it takes to get a good photo and at the same time can go completely unnoticed. Kate and her assistant captured all of the photos that we asked her to capture and did so in an extremely efficient yet patient manner so we were able to keep on track with the schedule. She also captured a ton of other fun photos throughout the ceremony/reception.

All of the guests loved her fun personality (we had so many comments particularly from the wedding party/those that interacted with her the most). Kate also posted our photos in a very short time frame which we appreciated. AND we loved every single photo that she captured. Kate is very talented and her prices are reasonable/competitive. My husband and I highly recommend her and look forward to using her in the future!

We booked Kate after watching her shoot a friend's wedding and I'm so glad we did. She impressed us with her energy and enthusiasm. This girl never stops working! She will do whatever it takes to get a shot - at one point she was actually IN a large bush because she had to back up to fit our very large wedding party in a frame. With just her camera and hands sticking out of that shrub, we were all dying laughing but the shot turned out amazing! I think she's also part ninja because I never saw her during the ceremony and yet she captured every moment from several different angles. I love that I was able to focus on my vows and not a camera during the ceremony without sacrificing the beautiful pictures. And she took detailed notes so she'd remember to take pictures of every person and thing we asked without us having to stay on top of it. Both her formal shots and her candids are awesome. We had a very large and rowdy wedding party and she worked quickly and with good humor to take our pictures so we could get back to our guests.

She had our pictures ready ahead of schedule and I absolutely love them! We absolutely recommend Kate.

Kate was such a joy to work with not only on our wedding day but also leading up to and after the event. She was extremely organized making sure to have all of the names and relationships of our family and friends that we wanted to have portrait pictures taken with. This lead to a smooth session where we got every picture that we wanted and we were quickly able to mingle with our guests. Her unique shots of our wedding party are outstanding and we couldn't have asked for better quality! I've already recommended Kate to several brides and can't wait to do another session with her in the future for family portraits.

Kate was absolutely amazing!! Our entire wedding from start to finish was photographed beautifully! Kate worked with us to build the best package that would work for us and all her products could be tailored to meet our needs. The day of the wedding she put everyone at ease and was very good at blending in to the background during the ceremony while corralling everyone during group shots. The albums are gorgeous, too. I would definitely recommend Kate Fine Art highly to any bride and groom!

Kate is... amazing? Fantastic? Perfect? It's hard to convey how happy we are with her as a professional, and more importantly her as an artist.
It almost seemed as if she wasn't there-- she is so unobtrusive. And yet, at the same time, she expertly captured each precious, intimate moment.

Kate is... amazing? Fantastic? Perfect? It's hard to convey how happy we are with her as a professional, and more importantly her as an artist.
It almost seemed as if she wasn't there-- she is so unobtrusive. And yet, at the same time, she expertly captured each precious, intimate moment. I look at my pictures and I cry with my mom, and laugh with my cousins. I see my husbands true smile...not his typical camera grin. She captures more than just beautiful images, she captures emotion.

I was looking at the pictures Kate took of the wedding today and I thought I look really happy...and really tall...and tall for me is outstanding!

Kate is an amazing photographer. She has a way of capturing your happy face. She doesn't make you sit still and take 400 of the same picture to get one good one she just gets it. Even the group shots were amazingly painless and show smiles that are real and not too posed.

And if you are a short girl who tells her you want to look tall, well then Kate will get on the ground and roll around and make you look perfectly tall. Or if you want overhead shots she'll be above things before you know it. Kate is willing to do what it takes to get the shots she wants and they are great shots. But she is also flexible enough to know that wedding things can happen...like a flower girl meltdown or a bridesmaid allergy emergency and she is professional enough to make those pictures work just as perfectly.


My favorite picture she took was supposed to be of only my side of the family and the groom. At the absolute last second one of the ring bearers decided to jump in front and crash the picture...from his little 5 year old face to the look on my Dad's 6'5" frame that moment is captured perfectly...it's the kind of perfection that can never be posed or recreated it can only be captured by a great photographer in the moment.

Kate was amazing! She was so professional, organized, and made us feel at ease from start to finish. She was able to get wonderful shots while being invisible to us and our guests. The photos are gorgeous and incredibly creative. I am so happy we decided to go with her...the pictures are the best way to remember every moment of the day and Kate captured everything!

Kate is simply amazing. I knew from the moment I met her that she was the photographer for my wedding. I am so glad I chose her for the following reasons:

1. Her bubbly, fun personality was a HUGE asset during both the engagement photos and wedding photos to keep us smiling and relaxed. Even to this day, I can't help but smile when my bridesmaids say "cute city" or call my mom "momsie" thanks to Kate. She even got my groom to smile and he hates pictures!
2. She has an incredible eye for detail. Whether it's a beautiful background for a shot, or my ring bearer who took pictures with a camera upside down, she captures it all. She shoots in the moment rather than hundreds of staged pictures.
3. For her talent, you are getting an unbelievable deal.
4. She was a huge help during the planning process. Out of all the vendors, I was 100% comfortable knowing Kate was behind the camera. The peace of mind she brings is a huge benefit on such a crazy day.
5. She's great at rolling with it.
6. Her photos are amazing. Just to give you an idea, I narrowed down my favorite wedding photos to 500. Try putting those into an album!
7. My dad, who rarely notices details, told me after the wedding how impressed he was by her. She took charge on the wedding day and told us where to stand, what to do, etc., which is very necessary for family photos and when your mind is elsewhere on such a busy day.
8. Kate will do anything for your photo. She was jumping behind bushes, rolling on the ground, running, anything. I have NEVER heard of a photographer doing that before, but when you see why she does these things, you appreciate her even more.
9. She loves photography. You know she genuinely enjoys what she does and wants to be there. Her enthusiasm makes you that much more excited.
10. Kate is very professional and easy to work with.

I would (and do) recommend Kate to anyone and everyone who is planning a wedding, but she books up so fast they haven't been able to. At this point, I am just looking for opportunities to use her in the future just so I can see what else she will come up with!

Kate is a phenomenal photographer. Seriously, just meet her and you will understand.

We loved having Kate as our wedding photographer! From the first time I spoke with her, she helped put me at ease. I felt comfortable asking her many questions I had ready, and she helped put together a perfect custom package for us. On the wedding day she arrived early and you can tell she loves wedding photography, which put me at ease on my wedding day! My family loved her as well. She kept everything organized and got all the "necessary" family pictures we wanted taken care of quickly after the ceremony. Hiring Kate as our photographer was one of the best vendor choices I made in wedding planning!

Kate's photos look so brilliant. The quality of her work and the level of professionalism make her the best choice. She works to get the picture and you will get the best results for a lower cost. She truly goes above and beyond. If she had not been there, the groomsmen would not have been able to figure out how to put on their boutonnieres.

Kate did an amazing job on our photos - both engagement and wedding day. She has an excellent artistic eye and captured some very creative and timeless moments which I have not seen the art of in other photographers. She's very discreet, yet doesn't miss a moment. When I share my albums with others, they get tears in their eyes and always comment on the fact that she absolutely captured the exact emotion of the moment.

What can we say about Kate? She made our day absolutely PERFECT. We planned our wedding in Maryland from 2,000 miles away in Utah, and we wanted so much for everything to go off without a hitch when we arrived to be married. Kate was extremely responsive to emails and phone calls, has a lovely personality and was a delight to work with on our wedding day.

The pictures themselves - ah were to begin?! They were more beautiful, more tender, more expressive and more real than we could ever have hoped for. Kate is a consummate artist, and a through and through professional. We weren't left wanting for anything - she even helped me with my boutonnière at the last minute!

Thank you Kate, for the perfect day, and for all you did for Gwen and I.

Kate was magnificent! She exceeded every expectation I had about what my photography experience would be like. She's comfortable, hilarious, knowledgeable and creative. She captured every moment I could think of, and then some. It is impossible to put words to how incredible the quality of the photos are. Nothing can do them justice but to actually see them. The best compliment I can think of is that people are STILL talking about how fantastic she is... not just my family and friends, but other people that have seen the proofs online. I think Kate is something special. I can't thank her enough!

I can't say enough good things about Kate Pelura and her photography! She's an amazingly talented artist, and has an eye for the details. Her wedding photography is very candid and really captures the moment. She's not your typical wedding photographer who has people stand and pose stiffly in poor lighting. Kate actually scopes out the wedding venue before the big day to get a sense of the lighting and backgrounds. She does also have everyone pose in the traditional shots, but does it creatively. I am so impressed with her professionalism and demeanor as well. She was very unobtrusive and I could hardly notice she was there working. The photos turned out better than I could have imagined. She does all-digital photography in both color and black & white. Her price is fair, and she's so worth it!

We chose Kate from her reviews on WeddingWire and after meeting her in person to shoot our wedding. Best decision ever! She is a diamond in the rough of crazy wedding vendors. She is a professional; great at what she does from the personal interaction to the technical work. She puts everyone at ease and creates great photos. She truly amazed us with our engagement photo results, and the wedding photos were even better. If you want great results and a friendly, fun, flexible, engaging, responsive, calming, organized, efficient, and overall great photographer look no further. Rest easy after picking Kate; good luck with music and cake.

I met Kate a little over a year ago, when she shot our engagement photos in Baltimore, Maryland. I was so impressed with not only the quality of the photos, but with her level of professionalism and easy-going (and fun!) personality that I knew I wanted her to shoot my wedding in New Jersey.

The week before our wedding, I was in crazy-bride mode, and after talking to Kate, I felt completely at-ease (at least in regards to our photographer!).
I was so impressed by the fact that Kate came up to NJ (from Maryland) a couple of days before our wedding, and visited our venues so that she could get a sense of the lighting and the shots she wanted to take. What a professional! This also meant that she was in town and right on time the day of our wedding. As a bride, I found it refreshing to work with a female photographer, especially as I was getting ready with all the ladies. She blended right in, and took some wonderful candid shots of us getting dressed.

I mentioned to Kate in a prior conversation that I loved the church that we were getting married in and she did an amazing job (along with her second photographer Aaron), shooting the church from all different angles, capturing some truly intricate details of the ceilings and architecture. I loved them all. At the reception, Kate also captured many details that are so wonderful to see in photos, because I definitely missed them at the wedding being a busy bride! She also went around to our family and friends and took photos of family members that we will be able to give to some of our guests as gifts because they turned out so great.

I wasn't keeping track of the time, and Kate never made me feel like I was "on the clock". She captured everything from me putting on my dress to us cutting our cake and dancing the night away and she never once pressured me about time.

Kate returned our photos to us before we even got back from our honeymoon and there are so great ones to choose from!
