Katelyn is simply the best in the business! I absolutely loved the fact that she made the entire picture taking process effortless on my wedding day. Her photos are simply amazing and speak volumes about the work she does. I highly recommend her to ANYONE.

Choosing a photographer for our wedding was a top priority for us. We knew that after 13 months of planning for a day that would go by far too quickly, the one thing we would have to be a visual reminder of that day would be our photos. It was so important to me to have someone who could give us those great mementos. That person is Katelyn Turner. Hands down I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an amazing wedding photographer. (I knew as I was walking down her front steps after our consultation that she was it!) Just take a few minutes to glance at her website or Facebook page and you will find yourself scrolling through more and more sets of her photos. She really loves what she does and it comes through while you are on a shoot with her and while she is editing your photos. I was a little nervous on our engagement shoot, but Katelyn quickly eased that. She is very easy to work with and helps you loosen up if you aren't used to having someone with a camera follow you around. I can't say enough about the quality of her photos. She definitely made me and husband look amazing on our wedding day. We also had Katelyn do our save the dates, invitations & thank yous. It was such a nice plus to be able to roll everything into one vendor. If we had any questions or issues on photography or invitations, we had just one person to check in with. We got so many compliments on our save the dates & invitations. People loved how unique they were and they featured our favorite photos from our engagement shoot. Katelyn will work on a unique and fun design for you and take the time to tweak it until you have something you love. She recently finished the design on our wedding album (and let me say that it was so much sooner than I expected) and I love it! If you are looking for a photographer who cares about you as a client & wants to make sure you are satisfied with your photos, then look no further than Katelyn Turner!

I don't even know where to begin, Katelyn is simply AMAZING!!!! I had been looking for a photographer for a boudoir shoot for my fiance, I wanted to make him a book to give to him on the day of the wedding. I did a lot of research online trying to find someone that did photos like that and that were tasteful. I came across her page and was immediately inpressed. She came to my house for the shoot and she was so incedible, made me feel so comfortable and I had so much fun. The photos turned out better than I ever expected them too. I haven't given the photos to my fiance yet but I know he is going to just love them. I would reccommend Katelyn to anyone!!!!! She is my go to from now on!!!! I want to do another shoot like this with bc it was just so much fun. She is helping me give my fiance a gift he will keep forever. I can not thank her enough!!!!! -Sarah Frick

Where to even start... Katelyn is an amazing photographer that gets to know her clients on a personal level. She captures the love between 2 people and has some unbelievable editing skills. I am extremely picky and she had no quarrels about going back through and editing some of the pictures to my liking. Patient, thorough, and engaged in every picture she takes... I would recommend Katelyn to anyone looking to capture their special day. -Ashleigh Miller

I booked with another photographer who was more expensive than Katelyn and didn't offer near as much. After our engagement session, we didn't like our photos and the photographer was very rude and refused to communicate. We decided our wedding photos were too important to continue with this photographer and I was recommended by a co-worker and a few other friends to check out katelyn. she had originally blocked off the weekend of our wedding to take as vacation, but knowing how desperate we were, she decided to do our wedding. She listened to our wants and just makes you feel like you are talking to a friend, like its not business. I feel she had our best interest in mind and I just wish we would have found her before booking our first photographer! Our album is lovely and we love having this rights to all our images. Her turn around time is amazing compared to my friends who have been married for at least and year and are still waiting for any pictures. I couldn't say enough good things about her.

Katelyn and her staff were absolutely amazing! After reviewing her work, my husband and I were so set on having her that she was the first thing we booked. Not only does she have the eye to capture beautiful pictures, she has the skills as a graphic designer to make her pictures stand out in her products. I loved how she did not spend hours upon hours posing us in weird stances, but just focused on capturing the moment and our natural actions. Photography was what we valued the most in our wedding and where we were planning to spend the most money. Our money was very well spent and Katelyn's pricing was more than fair for the pictures and products! We can't wait to use her again to help us capture the next big moment in our life!

Let me first say that my family has not had the least bit of success with photographers in the past. Both my sister's wedding photographers started out pleasant, then after receiving the deposit, fell off the face of the earth, were incredibly rude, gave false promises, and shotty work. So, when it was time for me to start researching photographers for my own wedding, I was incredibly thorough to ensure I would not have the same experience as my sisters. I had contacted about 20 photographers through emails, had meetings with 4 and I cannot tell you how much more impressed I was with Katelyn. She immediately lets it be known she wants to give you great photos to cherish -- not just as a photographer but as a caring person. She is a genuine person and runs her business as so. It felt so great to book her and know that I could trust her to treat me well as a customer, but use her talent to get me the images I've dreamt of. She did just that. I even had my own ideas and she carried them out with enthusiasm (where as in one meeting with another photographer, I mentioned doing this and she said she wouldn't be comfortable with that). My husband and I are hardly models but she made us feel like we were. Her encouragement and kind words through the shoots really made it fun. My husband even said that! I loved her quizes and tip sheets she gives before the esession, wedding, designing anything, etc. She really digs down to figure out what style you are going for. Now my two sisters are using her as their family photographers and we have a large extended family photo session booked with her in the fall. We can't wait to use her again and see her work her magic. 
Also, I saw the review about the lack of editing, and I have printed tons of my photos and I think the images look lovely. We made copies of the DVDs and gave them to our parents for Christmas so now our photos are everywhere. And we LOVED our family photos from the wedding! She made the family part of the day more of a family session where we all looked in the camera and smiled, and then did some candids of us interacting. I wouldn't have expected a photographer with such creativity to do the traditional super posed family photos nor did I want them but obviously everyone has different opinions. All I have to say is if you want a photographer you can trust, be comfortable around and feel confident in, go to Katelyn Turner Design and Photography.
