Katie was over the top amazing! I love her! She would go over and beyond being a photographer, she's so much more and was critical part of the wedding. She has great positive upbeat energy, always willing to work with you to get you what you need, give very professional suggestions and advice, she even helped me take me and my bridesmaid to the venue from our cabin!!! I cannot say enough good things about her and Candice, great people, and on top of that does absolutely amazing job! Her work is beautiful, she turn a raining cloudy day, into a beautiful pictures somehow. She's so open minded to new ideas and suggestions. I just love her so much!

We are thrilled with our pictures, and we are extremely happy we chose Katie to photograph our wedding.

Katie is a great photographer as well as part angel and part ninja. A good photographer takes pretty pictures, but a great photographer tells your story and capture the moments in your heart. She is so nice, down to earth, and she responds to all questions quickly. She also has a huge heart and is easy to get along with. That's important with all vendors, but probably most important in a wedding photographer.

Part ninja? Well, there were so many moments where I forgot we even hired a photographer. Not because she was gone and not doing her job, but because she managed to take amazing and stunning pictures but be discreet and stay out of the way and not always be in our faces when we were mingling with guests.

Katie is so wonderful that after seeing our wedding pictures, a bridesmaid of mine wants Katie to redo her wedding pictures from 3 years ago, and another friend said she has a girl crush on her after seeing her work. :D

Katie's the best!

I adore Katie's work. Not only does she take photographs that I will cherish forever but she became a great friend. She makes you feel comfortable as she photographs you and really "disappears" so that she really captures the essence of your moments. So many people commented that they never saw her during our wedding but when our disc came she seemed to capture more than I could have imagined. She is a great planner--scheduled everyone's photos-- and kept to that plan, which made our wedding day run much smoother. She was quick to respond to me always, the photos were always delivered sooner than expected and in the nicest keepsake box. I would recommend Katie to anyone I know. She even snicked my groom a 5 our energy the morning of our weeding to keep him from yawning! my She's wonderful and has become a great friend though the wedding planning experience.

Katie was absolutely AMAZING to work with! Once we took our engagement pictures with her and saw the outcome, we knew we made the right decision in hiring her. We were BLOWN AWAY by our wedding photos. They were better than we could have imagined. She captured our day in the most incredible way. I cried as I looked at the (around 1,000) pictures she took! She is incredibly talented, and worth way more than she charges. On top of being such an awesome photographer, she's an even more incredible person, and she has become a lifelong friend to us. We love her.

Katie was an absolute joy to work with from start to finish. From our very first meeting with her, my husband & I were blown away with her talent, professionalism, creativity, organization & friendly personality. We knew she would be our photographer right away. Her rates are reasonable & her work is quick & thorough. We liked how she presents a variety of package options, but worked with us to build exactly what we needed. Katie never missed a beat when we had questions or needed advice - very responsive & goes out of her way to ensure everything was covered. This went a long way b/c we know both we and she were very busy with wedding coordination. Our engagement & wedding photo shoots were both seamless; she kept us laughing, which is an important skill & found the shots/poses that would look most stunning & still look like us. She's a beautiful person inside & out & we are so thankful to have her as a forever friend now. We hope Katie will photograph our little ones someday, too. Our experience working with Katie was invalueable & we would recommend her to all our friends.

I love Katie! Seriously, LOVE. When I contacted her last year about the wedding she was quick to respond via email and then over the course of planning she was always available. Our engagement photo shoot was so much fun! We were planning the wedding from across the country so she was really flexible with us and our chaotic schedules. Did I mention she loves love? Also, she's a great people person. I have a groomsman that we can never get a genuine smile out of but Katie is a master! You can tell she loves her craft and has perfected it. I will work with her again.

Katie Rivers does an AMAZING job! She has taken family photographs for me in the past, and I knew I wanted her to photograph my wedding. Katie was so awesome to work with. She's very laid back and friendly, which is really important when photographing children (e.g., flower girls!). My photos are absolutely stunning. I couldn't be happier. I will forever have these photos to remind me of my perfect day.

Katie is absolutely amazing! I cannot say enough good things about her! I would absolutely recommend her to any bride! She is just fabulous! Natural talent, amazing with people, wonderful at managing big families, great ideas, I could go on and on. I was an out of town bride, and having a destination wedding in the N. GA Mountains. Katie took the initiative to call me right away. She was so sweet and walked me through everything! She really wants to get to know her clients and takes their personality very seriously when it comes to her photography. Katie was such a blessing to us, everything fell into place when we found her. She gave us great ideas, vendor recommedations, tips on timelines etc. She really is more than just a photographer... perhaps she should go into the wedding consulting business as well :) Amazing quality and extremely quick with turn around time. LOVE HER!

She is wonderful!!! I have definitely found my photographer for life.

Katie was absolutely amazing to work with! Her quality of work is unmatched. I loved how she took over and told us how she wanted us to look without the pictures looking posed. She did both out engagement and wedding photos, and I will treasure these for years to come. I was looking for a photo-journalistic approach to my wedding pictures and that is what I got. Katie will be my photographer for life!

I cannot say enough good things about Katie! From our first planning meeting all the way until the end of the wedding, she was absolutely amazing! Her laid back manner made me and my (now) husband feel very relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera.

Katie was very flexible, considerate, and willing to work with me and answer any questions that I had. We had several scheduling issues with the venue, and she was willing to alter our day of schedule multiple times until we got it all worked out.

In addition to her professionalism and quality as a vendor, she produces an AMAZING product! I have gotten SO many compliments from our engagement pictures and wedding pictures. Photography was an extremely important aspect of our wedding - we wanted to make sure that our wedding day would be "captured" by the pictures. And thanks to Katie, we have so many beautiful pictures that perfectly capture the beauty of our venue, the love between me and my husband, and the fun that we shared with our family and friends at our reception.

Hiring Katie as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made, and we will continue to contact Katie for all of our photography needs!

Katie brought so many ideas for the wedding photography. I didn't have to worry about a thing. She was very quick to respond to any questions I had regarding the day of our wedding. Katie is extremely organized and provides detailed emails, ideas, and schedule of events so the bride and groom are fully aware of all photographs occurring on the wedding day. She was, and always is, very professional and has a great personality for her job. Her creative eye sets your photos apart from the rest. And the turn around for our photos was very quick. We had all of our photos (nearly 500 of them) and photo album within two months! Katie Rivers Photo & Design captured our special day in the most beautiful way imaginable!

Katie was so great to work with - she even captured some really great shots of my notoriously unphotogenic husband! The pictures were above and beyond our expectations; we haven't shared them with one person who hasn't felt compelled to write us to tell us how amazing they turned out. Katie was also super flexible with our short timeframe, and extremely responsive to all of my questions which was a blessing since we had less than a month to plan our wedding. We hope to have the opportunity to work with Katie again in the future!

“The pictures that Katy took from our wedding captured the moment with all the love and emotion in such detail that we will always be able to open our wedding photo album and relive that special day. Her personality created such a comfort level with the wedding party that everyone was able to just relax and actually have a good time while being photographed. Everyone that has seen the pictures from our wedding just love them and they make comments that the pictures could be in a bridal magazine. Katy is truly talented at photographing people and capturing all of the emotion that comes with any special event.”

Katie is incredible! With all the craziness of my wedding she was some how able to capture what seemed to be a peaceful event. She was so easy to work with, and seemed to know exactly what I would have taken pictures of. Seriously one of the most creative photographers I have ever seen, yet she doesn't take it to far into the artsy that it doesn't reflect you as an individual. She truly comes to the shoot ready to direct, but also asking for your individual style and input. LLOOVVVEE her!

We were on a budget for our wedding like most couples are but we did not want to sacrifice the experience and quality of a good photographer. We found Katie on facebook and I immediately fell in love with her style. After we met and she gave us a breakdown of her prices - we never looked for another photographer to compare because we knew there was no way anyone else would come close to what she can offer. Our experience with her was great, both our families were very pleased with her work and professionalism and months later I still get compliments on our pictures. I love telling others about her - I just feel like everyone should have beautiful memories with out having to sacrifice their entire wallet. For that reason we continue to use her services.

Katie Rivers not only took the most beautiful photos of our wedding (as you can see from her images) but she also captured us as a couple and our most special moments in such an honest depiction. She was professional, gave us consultation before the big day and suggested so many creative ideas. She gave us our photos within a week after our wedding day. She was just a positive person to work with and we feel so blessed to have her as our wedding photographer. -- Also, we live in NYC (where there are lot's of big shot photographers). When people see the photos from our wedding, they can't believe someone so fresh photographed our wedding. The pictures speak for themselves - they are stunning!!! I highly recommend Katie for your wedding, engagement photos, pregnancy photos, or family photos. She is awesome.

I had the honor of meeting Katie through my sister after she took maternity pics for her. She did my wedding. She was able to work w/me financially and on short notice! She had great ideas and intertwined them with mine. My pics were delievered in such a timely manner. Although I had only met with her once prior, i felt she had known my wedding party and myself for such a long time. She was so patient as everyone took turns getting their own pics. It was an amazing experience to be able to trust someone with such a huge responsiblity on a great but stressful occassion. I cant imagine anyone else I would rather capture important milestones in my life. After the great impression she made on me professionally and personally, I do and hope to always use her for such events!
