Kat and Don are the absolute best photography team!!! They photographed not only our engagement photos, but our wedding photos as well. They put so much time and creative energy into their photography, and it shows with their final product. We felt so comfortable with them and they were fantastic with directing us without overly posing us. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and I would recommend them to everybody I know!

Don and his lovely wife were exceptionally informative, helpful, flexible, warm, personable, creative, accommodating, fun, caring, interested, professional, skilled, innovative and, most importantly, calm. Any adjectives I have left out are the fault of my vocabulary, not the service! Thanks, Don!

Very professional and easy going people. They are very warm and personable, who immediately put you at ease. This says a lot considering the day was pretty stressful.

Our wedding ceremony was tailored to our taste, which made it that much more special. Our wedding pictures are beautiful. They did an excellent job of capturing our special moments.

Don and his lovely wife, Kathy were the key to our wedding being beautiful, fun and stress-free, or as stress-free as a wedding can get. Lol! The photos are gorgeous and capture how happy and excited we were. I highly recommend a wedding by Don and Kathy Beach. My husband and I talk about how perfect our wedding day was. The funny thing is we planned it in about a week. Perfect!!! Thank you again Don and Kathy.

We loved their creativity with the photography and had so much fun. The photographs were absolutely beautiful and there were so many of them for a very reasonable price. We're extremely pleased with their services and highly recommend them!

Couldn't be happier with the way this turned out. Found Don and Kathy Beach through a web search, and the officiant/photography package appealed to me. We had a small ceremony out of state and as a compromise, had a reception a few days later. We wanted some photos from our ceremony without spending quite so much as we did on our photographer. Neither me or my husband is particularly religious, so we sought out someone who would be neutral. After contacting Don, he got back to me right away answering any questions, and once we spoke on the phone I knew he was the right choice. I'm interested in energy and healing, and learned don is also a Reiki master. He was always in touch if I had a question, and I was lost when it came to vows, but he came up with a great ceremony that was perfect for us. Everything was laid back and it felt like we'd met then before, they were so easy to be around and work with. Our photos came out beautiful and there were so many I loved I purchased all the images! Don and Kathy were amazing and I'm so glad we found them, our wedding day was exactly what I hoped it would be- about my husband and me, love, and our closest family there to witnesses and share in it. Thank you fur making our day beautiful and memorable!

After searching for what seemed like months, we found Don's wedding site; the site’s vibe was good and we called. After talking it seemed like a good fit even though all of our pre-wedding communications were by phone or email. We had a place in mind for the ceremony, but Don suggested another nearby we had not thought of at all. We're VERY happy he did: it was far more beautiful. We planned this outdoor (non-beach) wedding. The weather leading up to the day was perfect, except the day we need it to be. It was to be at sunset and at 3pm, the heavens opened. Don and his wife were very patient as we located an alternate site. If they were stressed about it, they sure didn't show it.

About two hours or so before sunset, the rain stopped. The sky got a wee brighter, but still overcast. We were a go. But the rain - and the ensuing panic caused stress we sought to avoid. Arriving at the site, Don's presence was immediately calming and - depsite the rain, the wet grass, the droplets of water plunking down from old trees and the lack of umbrellas, he reminded us what we were there for. We prepared our ceremony using a potpourri of the many they share with their clients - along with a little bit of our own creativity thrown in. It was wonderful.

We also got the photography package, which worked well with our budget. Overcast skies do not help with lighting, but they did wonders with what they had. The photos blew us away and will forever remind us of how wonderful and glorious that rainy Sunday was.

We have been together 17 years - our wedding was but a legal formality. We weren't looking to have a hootenanny, with hoards of guests and drama. But merely going with a JP, or someone who would read a ceremony out of a book was something we thought would be disrespectful to the relationship we have and the journey we're on. The forces of the universe brought us to Don, and for that we shall be eternally grateful.

From the first conversation until the last we were very pleased with everything. Our wedding turned out beautiful. The ceremony was relaxed but still romantic. The officiant makes you feel like he has known you forever which makes the ceremony feel very personal. The photographs turned out so beautiful and are a great reminder of our perfect day!
