the ONLY reason I am giving a 4.0 on quality of service is just due to the way my pictures were delivered. they were sent on a very basic disk with no special packaging or anything. Also the two assistant photographers disks were sent seperately, so I had to go through and organize all of the pictures into chronological order myself and it took quite a while.
I do beleive she has recently gotten different presentation packaging for her disks so that would also change the rating I have given in that area.
The only reason I am giving a 4 on responsiveness is that I was quoted 4-6 weeks to get my pictures back and it was more like 8-9, however it was an incredibly busy month for her so I understood.

this is in NO way meant to mean that I wouldnt HIGHLY recommend this photographer. Her work is amazing and different and the price was incredible. She was friendly, fun, on time etc.

Spurlock Portrait Design was affordable, and flexible. Kadi made us both feel very comfortable, which made it so we enjoyed the photo sessions, and so did the other members of our wedding party. The pictures turned out wonderfully, and we were given the rights to reproduce the photos in any fashion we want, which is great to make a wedding album just how we want to. I would highly suggest Spurlock Portrait Design to anyone getting married in the Denver area, we had a very positive experience.

Spurlock Portrait (currently Up in the Sycamore Photography) was such a huge reason I felt that my wedding was a success. For a bride that is NOT comfortable in front of a camera Kadi managed to not only make me feel comfortable, but at times beautiful. I had fun during my engagement session, and I’m someone who’s never enjoyed taking pictures. Kadi is someone who is not only good at what she does, but is so outwardly passionate about taking photos that those around her can’t help but take a good picture. I was amazed that with as many intimate photos that we ended up with, no one recalled being posed. Imagine, a wedding that didn’t feel like it was at a constant stage of pose. My pictures felt real. She captured little moments in time, just as I would like to remember them. Thanks Kadi.

Kadi was hired to photograph my daughter's wedding on very short notice. We had only 3 weeks to plan the entire event. Kadi worked very quickly and efficiently to capture the true essence of my daughters very special day! We are all extremely pleased with the results, the pricing and the professioanlism displayed by Kadi! I would recommend her to all my friends and family in the future, no matter what the event.

Kadi was an amazing photographer. She was so much more than we could have ever asked for. Our engagement photos were beautiful, something we will forever treasure. Her eye for the perfect angle and capturing us in natural and posed positions was great! I had so many compliments from the guests at our wedding about her. Every time I look at our photos it always brings a smile to my face. They are truely amazing! She felt less like a hired photographer and more like a friend -- love her for that! :)
