Kate is wonderful! We have only done our engagement session, but if our wedding day is anything like our engagement session, it will be a day full of laughs and fun! She was even willing to put up with our crazy dogs for a few pictures :) She is full of suggestions for many details of the wedding day from recommending DJ's, flowers, and suggested timelines for us, which was greatly appreciated!

I am so happy with the work Kate did for my engagement photos and wedding. We met with a few different photographers but as soon as I met with Kate, I knew that's who I wanted to do my wedding. She is so sweet and down to earth. She was always easy to get in touch with and answer any and all questions we had throughout the planning. I was so worried my engagement session was going to be awkward and uncomfortable but Kate made us feel so at home. The same goes for the wedding day. She was so professional, yet so fun! She helped keep things running according to the schedule so I didn't have to worry about a thing. She took pictures of even the smallest details that I would never have thought of. Her photography style is exactly what I was looking for, some formal, some creative and some spontaneous. Our photos are a great mix of everything. If anyone is looking for a photographer who will not only provide amazing photos but also take away the stress and worry of the day and have fun with you, then you should definitely hire Kate. You will not be disappointed!

When we looked for a photographer for our wedding, Kate was the most down to earth and personable. We chatted on the phone and she truly wanted to know what we wanted. She was amazing for everything. Our engagement photos were so fun that we didn't even realize how much time it took. Those pictures were amazing. Then came the wedding day. She was professional, fun, laid back, creative and just "D all of the above."

Our wedding photos are just beautiful. She captured everything we wanted. Our bridal party had fun and you could tell in the pictures. She doesn't pose everyone, she takes the natural beauty of everyone and enhances it. She may have you turn a little but it's all natural and easy.

I couldn't be happier with her.

One of the best decisions my husband and I made during wedding planning was to book Kate Wenzel Photography for our engagement pictures and wedding photos. She was the only photographer we met with and we knew instantly that she was perfect. She was so professional and knew exactly what she was doing. My husband and I had a huge wedding party and we have complicated families and Kate still got every picture we needed with time to spare! It was amazing how organized she was! And the pictures!!! Ahh every picture was stunning!! We had a hard time choosing our favorites because they are all amazing! Kate is genuinely one of the most amazing people I've ever met, you will not regret booking her for your photos!

Kate was so awesome, from start to finish. When I first put in a request for more information about having her as a photographer she responded in 30 minutes. That level or service continued through the whole process. Every time I had a question or wanted to confirm something with her she was so responsive and helpful.

On top of that, all of our pictures turned out amazing! Neither my husband nor I love to be in front of the camera but Kate made it so easy for us to relax and just be ourselves. She really knows what she is doing. On our wedding day, she made it so easy for us to relax and enjoy the day, knowing that she was keeping us on schedule and had a plan to make sure we captured all of the images we wanted. Overall, we highly recommend Kate!

Kate has been used by our family for 2 of our daughter's weddings, both of their engagements, and also our grandson's baby pictures. She is an AMAZING, creative photographer, capturing the emotions and love of each of these special times. We love her professionalism, along with her way of making a person feel comfortable and relaxed! I would highly recommend Kate and hope to use her again!

Our daughter used Kate for photographing her wedding. The photos of the bride and groom, country scenery and venues were exceptional. She totally captured the beauty of the day for us. This country wedding was our daughter's dream wedding and Kate captured this dream. I have looked at the photos over and over and recently viewed a book my daughter created using Kate's photos - they were absolutely beautiful.

We should have specifically asked for more photos of the people who attended the wedding and hoped that a little more attention would have been given to details of our family photos.

Kate Wenzel Photography responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your review and I am so happy to hear that for the most part, you're very thrilled with the images captured.

Regarding the guests and getting more pictures of the guests: Unfortunately, the bride, groom and the wedding party were over 30 minutes late arriving to the reception based on the timeline the bride and I had organized. This meant that wedding party pictures began and thus ended a little late. Due to this, I didn't have the time to focus on guest images as I typically do. I focused on the reception details, cake-cutting, toasts and the first dances as I knew these were incredibly important elements. Most of the time, I am able to get images of the guests enjoying the beginning of the reception. But as sometimes (understandably) happens, the bride and groom and wedding party can arrive late, forcing us to adjust our schedule as a whole and perhaps not allowing for us to get some of those other, secondary, images. I do so appreciate your feedback as I do strive to grow professionally each and every year!

Kate was absolutely fantastic to work with. Being an out of state bride can be challenging and she kept in contact so much by the time my wedding came around I felt like I already knew her.

Other than marrying my husband the photos were one of the most important part of the day. Having these photos to look at from now and for the rest of our lives was very important to me. She captured the love, emotion, excitement, and joy that went into that day.

Everyone that has seen the pictures have raved about how breathtaking they are and I completely agree.

I look forward to the opportunity of working with Kate in the future!
