Photography truly is the most cherished part of documenting your wedding day and my one recommendation is not to compromise on it. I researched 10 different photography vendors and Katie was admittedly the most expensive but no one else really can compare to the quality of her work. Her photos are beyond gorgeous and her her unique perspectives really remind you why photography is an art. She is responsive via email (usually within 1-2 days), she makes sure to capture all those little details you worked so hard to incorporate but didn't have a chance to even think about the day-of and she will even help you execute unique requests you want to include (such as setting up an impromptu photobooth!) She captures the photos you let her know you want taken but also manages to get the ones you didn't know you wanted, the ones you end up framing because you can't get over how amazing they are. If you're looking for a standard photographer offering nothing but posed/staged photos on a budget, maybe Katie isn't for you but if you're looking for something that resembles a spread pulled from one of the wedding magazines you've been pining over the past year of planning, hands down Katie is perfect.

I will note that we got married right in the middle of fall wedding season and as a result, it took some time to receive our photos (2.5 months...) but I promise, they were worth the wait!

My husband and I chose Katie to be our photographer after meeting her at two family friends' weddings and seeing the amazing photos from both (and after seeing how much the couples she worked with loved her). We did our due diligence and had looked at some other options, but nothing compared. She is wildly talented and has an incredible eye. The photos she took from our engagement session are phenomenal, and she showed us a few from the wedding, and we were equally impressed. We are so excited to see the rest of them. Beyond that, Katie is so fun and nice and just great to be around. We felt completely comfortable around her - which is important since you end up spending a lot of quality time with the photographer. All in all, Katie is the best. We would highly recommend her to anyone.

We were told the most important vendor to choose after your venue was your photographer, because the good ones book up early. Katie Stoops was the first on our list to call. We knew by looking at her online portfolio that she was extremely talented and we liked the fact that she used both digital and film, but it was icing on the cake when she came to meet us at our apartment (about a two hour drive away from her home) and greeted us with Georgetown cupcakes. Not only were the cupcakes delicious, but Katie's personality was wonderful and she got us even more excited about our wedding. Needless to say, after that visit, my husband and I both knew for sure that she was the photographer who we wanted to work with. Whenever we had questions or concerns, she was quick to get back to us, which was very comforting to two stressed people planning a wedding! The day of the wedding, she and her assistant showed up hours earlier just to scope the place out (even though she had photographed our venue before). She was professional and there to ease our worries, without being in the way at all. She captured us and our garden venue just how we had envisioned, natural and not too posed or orchestrated. We received our photos a couple months after our wedding date in the cutest little packaging. They are terrific, and we haven't stopped getting compliments. We loved Katie, would recommend her highly, and hope to use her again in the future for other special moments.

Katie was the photographer for our wedding recently. She is extremely friendly, professional, and her photos are fantastic. We haven't seen our finished product yet, but if her prior work is any indication, we will be thrilled.

Katie Stoops is awesome! She has such a unique and artistic eye for photography, with an admirable comprehension of light and composition (check out her website and you will see exactly what I mean!). She and Erin were professional, and yet both incredibly relaxed and personable and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Katie showed us a few photos as she was taking them and they looked AMAZING... I love her and I can't wait to see more of our photos! :)

Katie Stoops did a wonderful job at our wedding! Our photos are beautiful and we couldn't be happier with them. She captured all of the details, personal touches and moments that we wanted. She was professional and not at all intrusive. We found Katie to be responsive and helpful as we planned our wedding from out of state. We highly recommend Katie Stoops Photography!

Katie Stoops was the most important part of planning our wedding - I have ALWAYS been a fan of wedding photography, and had been a fan of Katie's for a while now. Making sure she could be part of our special day was a TOP priority. She was friendly, professional and made us feel so comfortable on a day that could have easily been stressed to the max. The finished photos were exactly what I wanted and will be cherished in our family forever. She is a true artist and I am honored to have her work displayed in our home. Cannot thank her or recommend her more...

Having Katie as our wedding photographer was like having Michael Jordan at a game of pickup basketball. Sure, we paid a fair amount for the privilege, but her work is unrivaled and we couldn't be happier with the decision. She takes the greatest of care, is a gem of a person, and makes amazing photos where lesser mortals wouldn't have even imagined they existed. On the fence? Get off it and hire her.

I'm not sure what I can say about Katie and her work that hasnt already been said in these wonderful reviews. From the start Katie responds within minutes to any email- i think the longest she took was 2 hours and it was only because she was traveling- i dont even get responses from my friends and family that quickly! She is so patient and truly is there solely to please the bride (and groom). With my massive family, and our wedding party of 10 attendants each, it should have been every photographers worst nightmare but Katie was so amazing with everyone (even when everyone was voicing their opinions) and constantly made sure that I got every shot that I wanted. I can honestly say that Katie, my MOH and my coordinator were the ones who made their goal that day solely about making me happy.
I have several newlywed friends who have recommended Katie to their friends over their own photographer! The pictures she produces speak for themselves and more than anything from the wedding, I am complimented on our pictures. I had a bridesmaid who was married 2 months before I was, and I got our wedding pictures back before she did. It is unheard of to have a turn around time as quickly as Katie, and I still got my pictures back in 5 weeks. She is worth every penny and more!
