Kirsty Edwards is amazing! She met and exceeding all our expectations with professionalism and very kind disposition. I instantly fell in love with her style of shooting and she was so easy to work with, even being located 2.5 hours away from us.

She worked with me from day 1 to ease any concerns with very quick reply. I had requested to see a few samples from weddings she had shot prior to ours, and she sent over 1/2 a dozen for us to view. With each slideshow I cried and truly felt like I was a guest at this strangers wedding. That's how we knew we absolutely had to have Kirsty as our photographer. Her vision is a perfect mix of beauty shots and photo journalism. Throughout the wedding she kept me calm and collected, and helped keep us to our schedule through the group family photos so we could enjoy the rest of our evening.

We chose the package with a second photographer, and he was just as easy to work with on the day of the wedding.

When Kirsty sent us our edited wedding photos we knew we had made the right choice- 110%! Our families all cried tears of joy while watching our memories, just as I had with her other weddings, but this time it meant so much more. These were our wedding photos, and our memories to share with our children someday.

Kirsty, we love you!

Kirsty was exactly what we were looking for in a photographer for our wedding.
She's super competent and FUN to be around.

We had all of the traditional photos taken but we also had some of just us messing around and having fun before the reception.

Planning out the photos before the wedding was a breeze and Kirsty has a great knack for capturing photos of all the special moments.

We couldn't have been more pleased and if we could give ten stars and a box of rainbows it still wouldn't be enough.

She's the best! We love you Kirsty!

I got a little ahead of myself and met with Kirsty before I had made a few important decisions like date, time and location of my ceremony. Kirsty stuck with me through the evolving plan! Without her sweet reminder emails, I would have forgotten to send her important information. Her regular and helpful communication told me she knows how busy brides are and that she cares enough about her business to keep track of her clients. The other photographers I contacted were not as helpful. I really appreciated how she had all documents ready and organized as well as her being so available to answer questions.

The ceremony was at San Francisco City Hall. Kirsty arrived on time and went to work immediately. My husband Jim, who is not a fan of having his photo taken, remarked how confident she was and how easy her directions were to follow. It was so easy to work with her she managed the different personalities of my family and friends. Following the ceremony, we went to the Legion of Honor for scenic shots. She captured amazing angles and great moments with our friends and family.

I highly recommend Kirsty for any event you would like properly documented. Kirsty is professional; organized, yet goes with the flow; excellent at managing people (including brides); artistic; let's you wear her coat if its cold and takes AMAZING photos! Jim and I couldn't be happier with Kirsty and how beautiful our wedding album is!

Kirsty was the photographer for our wedding in May in Half Moon Bay. We remember meeting her early on and feeling totally at ease in her presence. She is unbelievably easy to talk to, fun, and a pleasure to work with. We loved the way she captures so much emotion in her photos and her creative eye made for some amazing photos on the beach. We are still getting compliments! We cannot give enough praise for Kirsty, and highly recommend her to anyone getting married!

Kirsty is simply the best! She is professional, friendly, and SO easy to work with. We first met at a fashion show where she took exquisite photos and this April she photographed my wedding. She was calm and fun during the getting ready shots, which is very important when nerves are running high. She took a ton of 'just us' photos before the ceremony and reception so we would be able to enjoy the dancing.

She has such a great eye, every picture turned out wonderfully! My husband and I couldn't have asked for better photos, she captured every mood and moment perfectly, we'll cherish these memories forever. Thank you Kirsty!!

Kirsty Edwards photographed our wedding last fall. She was the first and only photographer we interviewed for the important position of photographing our joyous day! We first met over coffee at a local café, andknew right away that we wanted to work with her. Her fun and relaxed demeanor, and the portfolios of her work that we browsed through gave us full confidence that she would beautifully capture our day as it unfolded, just as we had wished.

In the months leading up to the big day, Kirsty was so responsive to my numerous questions that came up. She would always put me at ease, assuring me that all our wedding photography needs would be taken care of, and that she would document all of the highlights outlined on our timeline. Also, she had so many great suggestions and ideas for making the most of the time we had booked with her, and on the day she worked in such an unobstrusive, calm manner...sometimes we didn't even notice she was taking pictures. After all the wedding excitement calmed down, we were so eager to receive our slide show and digital photos from our special day. The day itself was such a blur; I was just so thankful that Kirsty and her amazing photography skills were there! I recall that just before Kirsty sent me the link to our slideshow and digital photos, she said, “If these photos don’t give you goose bumps, I didn’t do my job.”

To say we were blown away by her photos was an understatement! She caught all those special moments throughout the day (even the ones that weren’t on my timeline), friends and family from near and far, and just the overwhelming sense of joy, happiness and love which radiated throughout the day. We will treasure Kirsty’s photos of our wedding forever!

Kirsty was a pleasure to work with, passionate about her photography, and I simply cannot recommend her enough!

Kirsty is amazing!! I have never seen anyone shoot such unique and creative wedding photos. We are constantly getting compliments on our photos and we are in love with them as well! Her ability to work with natural light is incredible. She shot our wedding at Wente Vineyards in August and we couldn’t have been happier. We loved the photos and had a blast working with her. We flew in from Houston for our wedding and she was kind enough to recommend other vendors that we needed as well and we were 100% pleased with every recommendation she provided. We are so glad we found her and we only wish we lived in CA so that she could shoot our family photos. She has a contagiously happy personality and it is clear that she loves what she does. Thanks Kirsty!

All I can say is AMAZING!! Kirsty photographed my wedding May 26th, 2012, at Madrona Manor. She was so easy to work with, and helped to make my wedding day perfect. I have only seen the sneak peek, (which was to die for!!) so this review is mainly on how easy she made something I generally don't do with ease,(photograph well) something that felt natural, and comfortable! I genuinely can not wait to get the rest of my pictures, and know with out a doubt they all will be perfect. I have always dreamed of a picture perfect wedding, (Pun intended) and Kirsty at Shoot Retouch Design made that a reality for me! Thank you SO much Kirsty :)

Kirsty was amazing to work with. We were fortunate enough to meet her while she was shooting one of our friend's wedding, so we had insight into how she works. Her sense of humor puts people at ease and pulls frame-worthy photos even from the most shy subjects.
