Katie and Chris were absolutely wonderful to work with, they were very professional and the quality of our photos were amazing. They captured all the moments that mean the most to me - and we were so happy they were available! They are by far the best photographers in the South Bend area and hope to use them in the future for other sessions :)

Katie and Chris were incredible! I found them online just by looking through pictures from different photographers. Unlike other photographers, you can feel the emotion in her pictures and she really captures the feelings of the day. But anyone can see for themselves that Katie is incredibly talented. What you can't see from a website is how awesome she is to work with. She moved her schedule around for us for our engagement session since we only had limited time in South Bend. On wedding day she was with me all day (Chris joined my husband around 1 since he doesn't take as long to get ready) and not only took pictures of everything but even helped me get ready. Her pictures were beautiful and then she voluntarily (at no extra charge) stayed an extra hour or two to set up a photobooth for our guests to take fun pictures. Voluntarily! We had so much fun with her and she did such an amazing job. I would 100% recommend Katie to anyone getting married around South Bend. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer.

Katie Whitcomb Photographers was our favorite wedding vendor! Katie and Chris take creative but classic pictures that you can display proudly forever. They really work with you to take the perfect pictures for you as a couple. I felt like Katie was not only a vendor but also a friend, and I would recommend them to anyone getting married! We are planning on having them take our family portraits in the future as well! I could not have been happier with our photos! Katie Whitcomb Photographers is really the whole package!

I am so happy that I picked Katie & Chris to do our engagement & wedding Photography. I would highly recommend them to any future bride or groom! Katie was very responsive anytime I had any questions or concerns, which helps when you have so much more to worry about. Also the online proofing which they do through email was so easy, and it helped to get everything done faster.
On the wedding day they both showed up early, and Katie did a awesome job calming me down and keeping me smiling. (even Chris helped calm me down :) about my reception flowers, since I didn't get to see them, and he had already taken the detail shots)
They would be a excellent choice for not just wedding photography but any type of photography needs anyone would have.

This was my favorite vendor. Katie is easy to work with and very helpful. They delivered on every promised and even went above and beyond in helping with our schedule of wedding day events. The package price was responible. We get to keep all our images and they will be given to us on a portable hard drive.
I like the photojournalist style of photography with a lot of candid's so they worked out perfectly for me. They are very in tune with modern photography and digital effects, plus I loved how all of our stuff is online and easily accessible. I just loved having two photographers and I never knew they were there, until something funny happened and I turned to look for them and there they were!

GL Photography was absolutely amazing. They were very attentive to our wishes, they were very present but not overbearing during the wedding, and the quality of their artistry is absolutely amazing. There were a few photographs or opportunities that were missed (no pictures of the centerpieces and there could have been closer pictures of the bride and groom) but other than that, everything was phenomenal. I give them 5 stars because I could not have asked for a better photographer--especially considering their promptness and the cost of the package and the beauty of their work.

They were fantastic. We felt that we got so much personal service for the money that we spent. It was great to have the online proofing, it made everything so much easier for us and our family and friends. They really make your day feel special and make sure that they photograph every aspect of it from the bride getting her hair done in the morning, to the chicken dance at the reception! I would recommend them to anyone!

I loved this couple!!!! They were so awesome. Katie even helped me with my makeup while my MOH was getting ready. I look forward to using their services later on for family photos or even a pregnancy shoot sometime the future. I could not have found a better team for a better price with the quality of work they do. The book, the disc, the pictures all PERFECT!
