Kim was AMAZING!! We are from PA and got married in Maine. It was difficult to plan the wedding being far away and Kim was very accommodating and made sure we didn't worry the day of our wedding. She listened to requests we wanted and our pictures are better than I could have imagined!!! She is very professional and pays attention to details. She also got great shots of our dog! We got so many compliments about the pictures!!! Highly recommended!!!

I wish there were ten stars in every category. Kim captured the joy, elegance and beauty of our winter wedding on the Coast of Maine exquisitely. The value was phenomenal. I recommend Kim to every Maine bride. Our wedding was perfect and so was Kim's work. You know you found a gem when dozens of strangers and friends ask with amazement "Who was your photographer?"

Kim was amazing!!! We planned a destination wedding at French's Point in Stockton Springs, Maine. We live in Texas, so this made things a bit complicated - but Kim was SO easy to work with. We did most of our exchanges via email, and she was always prompt and thorough in her responses, which was super helpful as an "out of town" bride. On top of that her work is stunning. We had a blustery overcast day that was much colder than planned - but our photographs captured nothing but happiness and the stunning landscape of our venue. She was patient with us, and made everything so easy. She blended seamlessly throughout the night and took a ton of amazing and candid shots. We also got a full color photo catalogue, along with a jump drive of all our pictures, in addition to the album. Hiring Kim was one of the best decisions we made for our big day!

Kim was our wedding photographer for our wedding at Clay Hill Farm in Cape Neddick, ME in September. As we are out of town guests from NJ having a "destination" wedding in beautiful Maine, it was fantastic having a photographer who was familiar with both the area and the wedding venue to suggest some fantastic photos. We started at Nubble Lighthouse as we really wanted Ocean side photos, and the beautiful blue sky and (hot) sun made lovely but "squinty-eyed" photos. She recommended heading to Clay Hill, where we were able to get wonderful, green photos, and she worked with the lighting & shadows to capture beautiful images. Kim is a bride's dream photographer, not afraid to speak up to the bridal party or venture into different areas just to capture wonderful photos.

Kim did an AMAZING job on our photos! We never got to actually meet in person before the wedding day and she was everything we've dreamed of plus more. Not only did she take amazing photos and capture the most beautiful moments, I had asked previously if we could take some vintage/rustic-type pictures and she produced the most gorgeous shots. I would highly recommend her to anyone and for any shoot. Her assistant was just as terrific!

What can I say, Kim Chapman was beyond amazing! I was totally satisfied with hiring Kim! She went above and beyond my expectations! I heard of Kim through another bride that hired her to do her photgraphy at the same resort I was getting married at. I fell in love with her pictures! There was no doubt in my mind that I was going to get her to do my pictures as well!

I got married in Montego Bay, Jamaica on 12-12-12. A good photographer to capture the memories of my special day was my only "must have". Kim was very easy to communicate with. She wanted to be sure that she knew exactly what I wanted and any specific poses or ideas that I had to have.

Kim and her husband Dave arrived at our resort the day before our big day and spent time capturing pictures of the resort. The day of our wedding she captured all our pre-wedding moments as well as unique shots she found on the property. She was very professional and so easy to work with! We got along so well, I felt like I had known her for years!

Our wedding photos were amazing! We didn't just do the ordinary wedding poses! She really thought outside the box! I'm still amazed at how the pictures came out! I can't stop looking at them! We also did a "trash the dress" shoot the next morning!

We had so much fun doing that shoot! She really knows how to open your eyes to new things! What could be more amazing than capturing the beautiful blue Caribbean waters, basking in the tropical sun with you and your husband! The pictures came out better than I had ever expected!
Everyone thought that our pictures should be used for an advertisement for the resort! Others thought we both should be models! Well, that's all thanks to Kim! She worked her magic and talent and made us feel and look like we WERE models!

I can't say enough of how extremely pleased I am with how my photos came out! Even my husband who does not think too much about getting pictures taken, was very excited and thrilled with Kim's work!

Kim was amazing!! She was extremely professional, she put everyone at ease. We still get tons of complements on how unobtrusive she was, and her pictures were gorgeous! They were not cookie cutter, everyone looked very natural and she did imaginative group poses out on the coastal shore. She will go to great lengths to get the perfect shot. Plus she is a lot of fun:) I would highly recommend her!

We are so happy that we were able to work with Kim for our wedding! She was creative, fun and based on the pictures we've seen, she was EVERYWHERE! (Even though all of our guests commented on how "invisible" she really was!) Her work is top notch and we wouldn't have done a single thing differently! Oh yeah- I should also mention that she comes highly recommended by her peers, as well. At a wedding recently I was asked who we used as a photographer- and as soon as he heard Kim's name- he had nothing but great things to say.

I could not have been happier to have Kim as my wedding photographer! I hired her to photograph my destination wedding in Jamaica and so I did not get to meet her in person until we arrived in Jamaica a few days before my wedding. However, just through our communications over email and phone, I felt like I got to know her and really clicked with her. From the beginning I had a good feeling and knew I was making the right choice in going with Kim as my wedding photographer! And not only did she meet the high expectations I had of her, she exceeded them by far!!! She was fun to work with, she made me and my husband laugh, and she listened to what we wanted in addition to using her own creativity and personal style and flair! She went above and beyond what was outlined in our contract - as in she arrived earlier and stayed later than she had to and so I really felt our entire wedding was captured perfectly from start to finish!! I especially loved how excited she seemed to do our wedding! For two days prior to our wedding, I would run into her at the resort we were staying and got married at and she would tell how she has been constantly scoping out great photo op locations!!! I just couldn't wait to see the final products! And she was so efficient. Less than a week after our wedding, she had a blog post up that was to die for!! We have since received so many complements on our wedding photos. One thing I really love about our wedding photos is all the variety. She does some of the standard wedding shots you expect, then she does a lot of fun, original stuff too - this is what drew to me her work in the first place!! It's been almost two months and the fun never ends. Kim is ambitious and she has submitted our wedding photos to magazines and gotten our pictures published. It has all been like a dream, where the wedding fun just keeps going and going!

We also had Kim photograph our Trash the Dress session on the beach two days after our wedding and again she went above and beyond. I knew she had not done a whole lot of these sessions before so I sent her some inspiration photos and she then told me she knew exactly what I was looking for and that she would deliver! And she did - again, significantly exceeding my already high expectations!!!!! What can I say, you cannot go wrong with Kim as your wedding photographer - she will give you the best of the best. And whatever you ask for, you will get that too!

Finally, because I am huge picky perfectionist, Kim accommodated me and photoshopped some photos for me AFTER delivering the final product! It had nothing to do with her skills as a photographer, I just did not like some of the "un-pretty" trees that were present at my beach ceremony site - so she photoshopped them out for me, making my photos even more beautiful!

Dear Kim,

Brendan and I would like to thank you for traveling to Florida to photograph our wedding day. You took so many amazing photos! You captured the beauty around us - including the river, boat docks, palm trees, fruit trees, and more! Your picture style was amazing and you truly captured so many memorable moments. It was great having you be a part of our special day! You went above and beyond our expectations. Thank you again for your hard work!

All the Best,

Amy & Brendan Schmutte

I would not hesitate to recommend Ms. Chapman to other brides. Our photos are of the highest quality and our finished album is a showpiece. She was VERY easy to work with and is marvelously patient with people. We were very pleased with our experience and are so glad we contracted with Ms. Chapman.

Kim was excellent! Not only was she extremely professional, she was friendly, fun and easygoing from our first meeting until she took her last photo at our wedding. She accomodated all of our requests, and the finished product was amazing. We would recommend Kim to any bride and groom looking for a professional photographer to shoot their wedding day.

Great photos from a great person. She was a joy to have around. Her photos are gorgeous and breathtaking. She blended in and yet somehow knew the right pictures to get. I've raved about her all ready to people who aren't even engaged yet telling them to book her for the big day when it comes :) I was bummed that I didn't get more photos of my groom as he saw me for the first time walking down the aisle but the pictures she captured of my dad and I as we shared an amazing moment on our walk down the aisle made up for it. She can't be everywhere at once but she tries to be! Book her- you won't regret it!

The resolution of the photos could be larger, and we waited longer than expected before we received our CD. However, we appreciate that Kim was able to fit us in for a great price at somewhat short notice, and we are extremely pleased with her creativity and skill in capturing our celtic candlelight ceremony perfectly! All who view our photos are absolutely astounded, and demand to know who took them. We wouldn't choose anyone else!

note: This wedding was in the pitch dark with candlelight hence a tiny bit of grain

I hired Kim for my vow renewal in May 2011. Originally, I had a photographer friend lined up for the job but being military, he fell through as he got orders around the time of wedding day. I googled photographers in the Portland, ME area and emailed Kim in a panic. Luckily she was still available on such short notice and even gave me a discount on her regular prices when I explained we were short on budget because we had not planned a payment for our photographer friend. She was very easy to work with, responded to emails and phone calls quickly and efficiently and I am very grateful for her understanding and willingness to negotiate on short notice. When wedding day came, Kim was very easy to get along with and was very professional. My bridesmaids and I enjoyed being goofy with her during a spontaneous mini photo shoot before the ceremony and she dealt fabulously with other guests who were attempting to take their own photos. I loved viewing a sneak peek of the photos on Kim's blog about 2 days after the wedding and the completed album in about 10 days following. The pictures were beautiful and even made me tear up on a few. Kim did wonderful work given the cold and rainy day it turned out to be. The bright blue of my bridesmaids dresses, my accessories and other wedding decor really popped against the gray sky. My only complaint is that I wish I had more close-up shots, especially of guests emotions during our ceremony and our long kiss at the finale of our first dance. I feel like those moments were overlooked without a zoom lens or if Kim was trying not to be intrusive just to get the shot There are a few photos where my hair is out of place or there is a coffee mug in the picture, etc but overall I would say the value for her experience was great. I love that I received a professional proof book, a digital CD with all the photos and full printing rights. Thank you Kim for capturing our big day so beautifully!

I would HIGHLY recommend Kim Chapman, as a wedding photographer. She did an absolutely amazing job and totally captured our wedding day, in the most perfect & magical way!! Kim was very easy to work with and a pleasure to get to know, along the way. Kim blended right into the crowd, kind of as if she was a guest, with a fancy camera! We are just so happy with her work and are very thankful for all the amazing pictures we now have, from our special day.

I really enjoyed working with Kim. My husband and I are very pleased with the quality of the wedding photos we received and the package she was able to put together for us. It's great to walk away from the experience with your photos on a CD, not having to order every single picture from a website. That was what mattered most to us and one of the top reasons why we chose Kim- she really makes an effort to do everything she would want for herself, if she was the bride.
I couldn't give Kim 5 stars on quality, only because there are some shots that I think we missed. There are very few shots of me, in my dress, at full-length. I also didn't get hardly any shots of me and my sister and mom. I know that she focuses on capturing the story of the day and she did a great job, but I wish that we had a few more family shots.
For responsiveness, Kim was a little slow at returning emails, but when she did, she was thorough. The contract was very easy to understand. Kim is extremely professional, especially working with the other vendors.
I would highly recommend Kim. She is a great person to work with, generally happy and fun, excellent quality of photos (love the proof book that she puts together), and affordable.

I was extremely disappointed with Kim Chapman, especially because she came so highly recommended. Leading up to the event, she was impossible to reach - I tried to contact her on the phone several times and left generous windows of time when I or my fiance could be reached, but she wasn't available to call until the day before my wedding. What a nightmare. She did end up being personable and kind on the day of the event, but I wish I hadn't had that kind of stress before the big day! My other main concern was that she put too much focus on photographing our adorable flower girl during the ceremony and at the reception, and neglected the bride and groom. Overall, it was a bad experience.
