Thanks for checking out K&R Photography, brought to you by the wife and husband team of me, Kerry Gastley, and my husband Russell Gastley. Photography has always been a part of our lives, whether shooting for fun or professionally. What started out as a fervent hobby for both of us has now turned into a professional venture. We are thrilled to share our passion with couples as they prepare for the biggest day of their lives!

As a recent bride, I know the whirlwind pace of planning a wedding—and I definitely know how quickly the actual day goes! From getting ready, to seeing friends and family, to dealing with all of the emotions you're feeling, your wedding day is like no other day in your life. Your day is filled with joy, excitement, humor, and unabashed emotion, and it's impossible for you to absorb everything that's happening. That's why we love what we do: we help you capture those moments. We work with you to make sure that every happy, funny, and magical memory stays with you for years to come.

Investing in a quality wedding photographer is a surefire way to retain the feelings and memories of your amazing day—and you want to make sure that you have a beautiful, vivid depiction of your day. We shoot in digital format, using Nikon and Canon Professional Equipment. I am the primary photographer, with Russell providing invaluable assistance. Though we shoot in digital, we can shoot in film upon request.

In order to maintain the highest standards of quality, we dedicate ourselves to shooting only one wedding per day—and we aim for one wedding per weekend. We want to make your wedding the most memorable day ever!

As we like to say here at K&R Photography, the memories are always in the pictures. We look forward to working with you and ensuring that your memories last a lifetime. Read less

My Photographer was Kerry Gastley, and her business is called K&R Photography. My sister also used Kerry as her photographer for her wedding. I could not have been happier with the service Kerry provided on my wedding day. She arrived right on time, and knew before-hand which shots I wanted to get before the ceremony. Her assistant Trish was also very helpful! When the photos arrived I was ecstatic. Kerry did such a beautiful job and I am so happy with her work!

Kerry is absolutely AMAZING...AMAZING.... I would reccomend her, without hesitation, to everyone. She was great to work with every step of the way. Planing our wedding was so stressful, but Kerry eliminated every concern we had about the photos and after meeting her, we knew that we didn't have to worry about a thing. On the day of the wedding, Kerry was not just accomodating - she was a blast to be around! Because of the blistering outdoor heat, we wanted a really quick portrait session, and Kerry created amazing photos in record time. Throughout the reception, she was so pleasant and cheerful. My husband and I get really nervous when having our picture taken, and Kerry instantly put us at ease. In fact, some of our favorite photos came from moments when we didn't even know we were being photographed. And Kerry was so helpful in assisting with the flow of the wedding. We had a Day-of-Coordinator, but with Kerry there, it felt like we had two coordinators who made sure everything went smoothly. Did I mention the photographs? They are absolutely gorgeous - I couldn't be happier. Thank you Kerry - you're the best!

Kerry did an excellent job photograhing our wedding. From the day we met with her, we knew we wanted to hire her. She was always very prompt with responding back to our questions. Her work is fabulous and her turn around time is remarkable. She is very friendly and easy to work with. I feel like the short time I've known Kerry that we've known each other for years already. I hope we can keep in touch even though my wedding is over. I would surely highly recommend Kerry to other couples.

I can't say enough good things about working with Kerry. From our very first meeting, she had a very calming effect on this somewhat frazzled bride. She was very responsive throughout the planning process, always responding to my calls and emails promptly. She did a fantastic job on our engagement pictures (and the price was fabulous!), and even my camera-shy groom felt comfortable during the shoot. As an added bonus, Kerry got the images to us very quickly after the shoot so that we would be able to include prints in our invitations.

As we approached the day of the wedding and the 10-day forecast predicted rain for my outdoor ceremony, she had a reassuring "everything will work out" kind of attitude that was much appreciated. Luckily the rain held off, and we had lovely weather for the ceremony. Kerry and her assistant were on time the day of (they actually beat me and the groom to the location!) and ready and willing to help in ways that fell way beyond the scope of photography. They helped me track down missing family members, get corsages and boutinnieres to the proper folks, helped coordinate a pre-wedding card exchange with my groom (I was already in my dress and didn't want him to see me, so they acted as go-betweens!), and even got both of us a glass of punch once we arrived at the appetizer hour after the ceremony.

All the extra attention she gave us was great, but the pictures are the most important thing. They are awesome!! Kerry took a ton of pictures, and so many of them have made me ask myself, "Where *was* she when she took that?!" She got so many wonderful candid shots throughout the ceremony, but I don't remember her or her assistant hovering over us at all. She was able to capture the event without interrupting it. She did the perfect combination of posed, candid, and detail shots. And her turnaround time is great! We received a link to the photos online a mere 10 days after the wedding.

I can't recommend Kerry highly enough! I hope to work with her again as my husband and I grow our family (she does great shots of little ones, as evidenced by the many cute pictures of my little nieces during the wedding). :)

Kerry Gastley of K and R Photography (along with her excellent assistant) did a wonderful job of photographing our wedding. The quality of the photographs is beautiful, and Kerry was able to capture each emotion and event of the day with great detail and warmth. The day of our wedding was a whirlwind for us- the weather went from sunny to a record-breaking rain storm in a matter of hours, but Kerry's photographs capture the best of the day. She was extremely professional, keeping a level head and calming all of us before the ceremony, and taking some great shots when weather threatened outside. She is a great value, especially for the quality she provides. She was responsive to our needs and suggestions, very communicative, and flexible in her approach. She was just a joy to be around, as well as being a great photographer. The photos turned out to be a keepsake we will treasure for life, and they're beautiful- they just capture everything we loved about our wedding day.

Kerry did a wonderful job with the pictures. We were so happy with the way they turned out. The best part about her package is that she'll give you a CD with all of your digital proofs...so you can print what you want, when you want!

My only recommendation is that you collect examples of the photos you would like for her to take.
