At Kate Gardiner Photography we are a husband and wife team, with journalism backgrounds, that work hard to build an intimate rapport with our clients that shows in our photographs. While we do any requested traditional family photos, our emphasis is more on documenting your day with all the joy and beauty that unfolds.

We feature an a la carte style of pricing as well as three packages that feature our most popular wedding day coverage and keepsake items. Some of these items include our fabulous photo booth, modern wall art, and fine art coffee table books.

We love doing engagement sessions with our couples! So much so that we include it for free in all of our packages over four hours. It really gives us a chance to get to know each other before the big day, not to mention gorgeous lifestyle photos that are perfect for save-the-dates or guest books. Read less

Kate is a remarkable person. She is a joy to work with and we especially enjoyed her pleasant personality during our special day. Her calm demeanor meant a lot on a day that can be filled with stress! Her images are gorgeous and I love looking at the photos she took of us because I feel so pretty! I don't usually like having my photo taken, but I was thrilled with what she presented. I would hire her again without question!

Kate Gardiner photography did a phenomenal job capturing all of our wedding moments! From the engagement photos to the wedding day photos, every image turned out so beautiful and unique! I constantly get comments on how tastefully done the photos were taken. Scheduling photos session times was so easy even with me working night shift and my husband working days. Whenever Kate made an appointment she was there promptly everytime and prepared to discuss ideas. It was also very comforting that she wanted to get to know us first at a preliminary meeting so our photos would be unique. My husband really hates getting his photo taken and as we're going through our wedding photos he said that getting our photos done by Kate was the best decision he made about the wedding planning! Well besides marrying me.... Really recommend this photographer for any event!

Kate was amazing to work with. Her pictures are not only beautiful but also very unique. She captured every moment of our wedding without asking us to stop what we were doing. In other words, she captured the perfect moments of my father/daughter dance without interrupting our dance to get pictures. Her pictures had the artistic and journalistic edge we were searching for. She was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a photographer.

Kate captured every special moment of my wedding day beautifully - in fact every time I look at the pictures I feel that I'm back at the wedding. She was able to find unique places in my hometown to take our photos. After we met, we discussed what I was wanting in my pictures along with her suggestions. I was able to scratch "photography" off my list early because I knew Kate had it all under control.

Kate is a fun and professional photographer that I would recommend to any bride wanting beautiful documentation of their special day!!

She is responsive, professional and fantastic. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants amazing photography!

Besides marrying my wife, meeting Kate was the best thing to come out of our entire wedding experience. From the initial contact the hugs at the reception and the excited blog posts and e-mails alerting us to the finished products; Kate was timely, friendly, professional and ultra-attentive to the needs of all of us. These items alone would have made her an easy choice for a wedding vendor but as a happy coincidence; Kate is also one of the most talented photographers I have ever seen. Her ability to find those unique and often overlooked images that capture the heart of a moment are unparalleled. I consider myself to be a fairly emotional guy, but I have never been moved to tears by a photo until I sat, holding hands with my new wife, and flipped through our slideshow together. Kate Gardiner Photography is a top-notch wedding vendor and receives my highest measure of praise for the level of service, product and attention to detail.

We found Kate online when we were looking for a local photographer for our wedding in St. Augustine, FL last summer (2009). We met with her once and knew she would be great to work with. She also offered an engagement shoot with the price of the wedding package, so we had a chance to get to know each other before the big day. This also gave us an opportunity to get some beautiful shots of the two of us around St. Augustine - we were so happy with the results.

Kate was very responsive leading up to the wedding and was fantastic to work with. She was organized and treated our families and wedding party well. She got great shots of almost everything we could have wanted. And when it started sprinkling after the ceremony, she had a big black umbrella to keep us dry... that umbrella turned into a prop in my most favorite wedding photo of my husband and myself. She was fun to have around throughout the wedding day and I have kept in touch with her since then. I would definitely recommend using her if you're in the St. Augustine area. She's awesome!

When Tim and I met Kate Gardiner for the first time, we were very impressed with her experience in the field, photos she showed us from some of her previous wedding shoots and her overall organization and professionalism. Kate paid very close attention to detail and she immensely exceeded our expectations. All of our wedding photos were absolutely awesome! Kate truly has a gift; she was meant to be a photographer and it shows in her photos as she truly brought out the best in everyone that was photographed. We will definitely recommend her services to our family and friends.

Everything about our experience with Kate Gardiner exceeded our expectations. From the moment we first met her, she made it clear that she would work with us to meet our needs. Prior to our wedding, Kate met with us several times and was always just a quick phone call or e-mail away to answer a question. She often encouraged us to think of details that we probably would have ignored if left to our own devices. Although we were skeptical, the engagement session was such a big help to my husband and me. It made us much more comfortable with Kate and made her more familiar with us. Plus, we had a beautiful guest book for our wedding guests to sign. On our wedding day, we felt like Kate was our friend, not our photographer. She even helped us diffuse some situations with guests and other vendors. Kate had our pictures uploaded onto Pictage within two weeks of our wedding despite the hurricanes hitting Florida! The images are everything we could ask for! They are the perfect mix of more traditional portraits and more creative shots that capture the varied emotions of the day. We could not be happier with our choice to employ Kate on our wedding day.

Kate did an amazing job with capturing every moment of my wedding day! She was very professional and personable to work with. Like she said, she takes the standard family photos that we requested and then she blended in with the atmosphere. The pictures were stunning and captured every special moment on our special day. I cannot thank Kate enough for being a part of my wedding. Her work is amazing and I would recommend her to anyone!!!!! Read less

As a creative professional, I considered the photography of my wedding to be very high on my list of priorities. I wanted to find someone whose style matched mine (modern, laid back, fun) and would be easy for me to work with - even after the wedding on the official album. Kate Gardiner matched all of my criteria easily and was super fun to work with. When my husband and I met with her, we clicked immediately. She spent a bunch of time with me before the wedding to scope out our location. On the big day she made sure that all of our posed photos looked perfect while making everyone feel at ease. As soon as we got back from our honeymoon our photos were already online for us to view and our proof book was mailed shortly after. Working on the album with her has been hard only because there are so many great photos to choose from! Overall, my experience with Kate has been easy and fun. She is very responsive throughout the planning process and even after the wedding. She's easy-going yet highly professional and not to mention, very talented!

Kate was amazing! Brian and I loved working with her. Out of all our vendors she was complemented most by our relatives and friends. Kate was unlike most of the photographers I have witnessed at other weddings I have participated in. She had a relaxed manner, and was highly attentive. She knew what we were looking for and kept that in mind. Our pictures captured the day and Kate was to thank for thank. No phony poses, no fake smiles. She saw things I never would have remembered. It was a joy to share our day with her. And no, I'm not just saying this, she is great at what she does.

Kate was a huge help. Everything was running behind and she just rolled with the punches. She even hung around longer than she was supposed to and helped us get some great shots.
