Kate was just great at working with us and our family for photos during our wedding day. We had a rough time finding the right personality to fit in with our group of family and friends as at times they can be overly goofy and vulgar.

This did not phase Kate whatsoever. She rolled with the punches and worked at getting us some great photos at all the locations we desired in a short time frame. Our whole group felt comfortable getting photos taken with Kate as she fit in so well with all of us and helped us all relax for some wonderful photos.

I would recommend Kate to anyone looking for pictures for their wedding, but would also recommend her for photos for other events.

Kate, if we ever plan to renew our vows or need a photographer for another event, we will absolutely be looking for you! :)

I love looking at my wedding pictures! Kate was very personable and easy to work with. Her prices are great too. Kate took several pictures throughout the wedding and I never noticed she was there. I recommend bringing a bridesmaid along to all of the pictures to help make sure your dress is straight or that people are lined up and spaced evenly. Kate does most of that, but it never hurts to have a second pair of eyes. I recommend her highly - two thumbs up!

Kate was amazing to work with! She has a great personality and I enjoyed being with her all day. She helped me remember small items that I had completely forgot about. (exp. Garter) She helped me stay calm and remember to enjoy the day. The pictures came out AMAZING and everyone loved them. Anytime I had questions she would respond quickly by email or phone call. I will use her again for other photography needs. Thanks Kate!

I found Kate at a bridal show back in January of 2010. Of course, what I first noticed was her beautiful work; however, I also found that after interacting with many, many photographers, Kate was the most down to earth and personable. (After all, I was going to be spending 8 plus hours with my photographer; why choose someone who was stuffy and made me feel uncomfortable?). I had spoken to Kate numerous times before the wedding. She was super flexible, and even traveled to Flagstaff in the *snow* to shoot our engagement photos. I never had trouble getting in touch with her, which is reassuring when you are planning a wedding and have question that needs an urgent answer. Also, Kate is by far one of the most reasonable photography services out there. (Just start price comparing, and you will see what I mean!). When the wedding day arrived, Kate hopped in like one of the family, and she was open to listening to any suggestions we had for our photos. Mostly though, we just let her do the work, and it was fabulous. The turn around time was fairly quick as well (within two weeks). We had a distance wedding in Flagstaff, and while most photography vendors wanted to charge for an overnight stay, Kate didn't, which was very generous of her (esp. when you start counting every single dollar!). I would recommend her services without any hesitation!

Kate is amazing! she was so willing to be early, drive to where we where, and where we were going. She took great pictures,and was so kind, and patient. I received my pictures in a very timely fashion, and was offered the most convenient ways to receive them. Kate was so kind, flexible, and patient, as I planned my wedding from out of town. Whenever I need a photographer again I won't need to look for one...I have one...KATE!

Kate is located in AZ, but with the referal from a CO photographer we asked her to come and do our wedding. She agreed and for a more than reasonable cost. she came up last fall to meet us and do an engagement session together and she was friendly, personable, and professional. She always kept communication and her pictures were amazing. She was prompt and i honestly couldn't think of anything she could have done better!

Kate was the most amazing photographer a bride could have asked for; I met Kate at the bridal fair and loved her immediately. That day I booked my boudoir session with her, not intending to book her for my actual wedding. The more time I spent with her the more I loved her. My boudoir session was so much fun, one of the best experiences as a woman I have had yet; I knew that day that I wanted her to be my wedding photographer. I have since booked her for holiday photos and have every intention of having another boudoir session, as well as pregnancy photos and other family photos.

Kate Wall was a delightful photographer. She put me at ease from the moment that I met her. We were married nearly a year ago and her prices have increased slightly since then, but the package prices still seem reasonable. I highly recommend selecting a package in which you own your wedding pictures. This give you a lot of flexibility with purchasing a professional album but also creating your own. My only opportunity areas were that some of my family photographs had sun spots on them due to the setting sun. If you order a print through Kate, I'm sure that she could edit things like this out. Also, we did not receive all of our photographs that she took the day of our wedding. I believe that Kate only sent us the ones that met her professional standards (which I understand but I would have like to have seen how all of them turned out). All in all, working with Kate was a lovely experience.
