A Touch Of SunShine Photography
Very amazing women who makes beautiful pictures for your day. Her pictures are personal to you and she gets into your personality to make your albums special for you. I'd Def grab Kim up for any other event I have in future!
Kim was easy to work with, had alot of photo packages and options to choose from and provided excellent service.
I am so pleased with my decision to use Kimberly as our wedding photographer! The list goes on and on about why I would recommend her to any of our friends and family who are in search of a photographer (weddings or portraits - Kimberly photographed our wedding as well as engagement portraits)
I will start with some of the ways Kimberly lived up to my expectations & then some: I could always count on a speedy reply when I contacted her. The consultation and booking process was very stress-free, she is very easy-going and personable, she offered plenty of options within my budget, I left the consultation excited and I felt no pressure to make a decision (which was not my experience when meeting with other photographers).
Portraits! I love our portraits! Kimberly managed to make the session fun & very comfortable. My hubby was less then thrilled with the idea, but once we got there & got started, we had a lot of fun & it showed in our photos. As part of our package we received a guestbook with all our engagement photos & photo cards for our guests to take to find our wedding gallery online, we loved them and everyone signed our guestbook!
The day of the wedding: Kimberly showed up on time (her & her husband were dressed very professionally), while I was still getting ready she took photos of my flowers, our rings, all the details. We had plenty of time to take lots of photos before the limo came, it was a lot of fun with all my bridal party. Once the ceremony began & the day began, I barely realized she was even there to have taken as many wonderful photos as she did! I was given a CD with over 1200 images from our wedding day & absolutely loved all of them! It was such a nice mixture of portraits, artsy & detail shots, group photos, & photos of all the events of the day. The day goes by so fast, it was a blessing to have Kimberly; she caught things I didn’t even realize were going on throughout the day. Kimberly was very friendly with all my family & friends, she was very accommodating with the numerous photo requests from everyone, plus her husband was there to catch even more of our day when she was attending to us & the events throughout the day. Overall, everyone was impressed with Kimberly & I received rave reviews about her work once everyone got to see our wedding gallery.
After the wedding: I will start with saying ‘great things are worth waiting for’. I have to admit I was super anxious to receive our album package… so I was a thorn in her side about seeing the files/progress. We received our completed albums within a few months following the wedding, it seemed like a lifetime, however Kimberly was upfront with the timeline & once you see the albums and realize the amount of time she spends custom designing the layouts, you appreciate the wait. We LOVE our albums & show EVERYONE! The pages are crisp, vibrant, the albums are high quality & the flow of the album tells the whole story of your wedding, start to finish (Not just highlight photos of the day!) I scrapbook, so I think when I saw her design style this was one more thing that drew me to selecting her, her albums had a very storybook feel to the album design.
That pretty much sums it up! I genuinely recommend Kimberly for anyone in search of a wedding photographer!
Kim was a fantastic photographer for our wedding. She did a wonderful job! My husband is not a fan of having his picture taken and we both barely realized that she was even there. She took over 1,000 pictures of our wedding and captured it beautifully. Kim is very well organized and has a great eye for taking pictures. I truly enjoy her creativity and artistic style of picture taking. Her prices are extremely reasonable and everything is online so it is very easy to review them. I would highly recommend Kim for any event!
Kim was wonderful with our wedding photos. I cannot say enough positive things about her. She is SO easy to work and get along with.You have no idea that she is even there! Kim also returned my emails in a timely manner and answered any questions and concerns we had! My entire family absolutel loved all the pictures that we purchased. They were also so impressed with the photo books that we chose in our package as well. It was so hard to pick the ones that we wanted for reprints because they were all so wonderful. I have to say after meeting several photographers she was so down to earth and didn't pressure us into making any decisons. Her prices are so reasonable as well! I would, and actually have reccomended her to anyone getting married in the future! We are actually planning on using Kim for family photos in the future!
Kim was amazing and her cost is extremely compared to wedding photographers. She does her own processing so it takes a little longer to get the photos back, but they are available to download off line immediately. She was amazing and very innovative!
First let me say that I can not say enough great things about Kim. She took our engagment & wedding photos and did an amazing job. I refer her to everyone that I know who needs some form of photography done. A wedding is one of the most important parts of your life and finding someone to capture those precious moments for you is a major decision to make. Like normal couples, Denny (my husband) and I went to several wedding fair's around Maryland looking for a photographer and only found them to be expensive and truly over-rated with personalities that were just over-bearing. It was only by chance that my now husband was searching on the internet and found Kim's website from a vendor suggestion list and I am so thankful to this day that happened. Out of all the vendors for our wedding, I most pleased with our photography choice. After meeting with her for the first time at my parents house we knew that we were making the right decision. You could tell right away that she was not going to be over-bearing and was there to please you...as she often said to us "this is your wedding" and wanted to make sure she did everything she could before the photos were taken and during the processing/development of the photos. Not to mention, the wedding package she offered us was truly amazing and the value for our money was great! Even my mom "the coupon queen" agreed that it was an amazing value- now that's saying something! : ) The wedding photos were wonderful and I remember telling people...."I don't even remember seeing her taking photos"....but I know she did because we have over 1,200 photos to prove it! LOL : ) WOW! Over 1,000 and the best part is that we get a CD with all those photos and could make any additional copies we wanted ourselves anywhere!?! Not many photographers ofter that option. Not to mention the pictures were perfect and showed the true feeling of us and everyone there at the wedding. The engagment book, proof book, and the wedding albums she created are amazing! I now have so many wonderful photographs to look back on that are so natural and true to the way I felt the day of my wedding and what is more important than having pic's that truly represent your special day? I will be forever grateful and thankful to Kim for all that she has done and the wonderful memories she has captured for us.
She repsonds by email extremely fast, within 1-2 days max and is willing to make any necesary changes to please you. We were able to view the wedding photos within 2-3 wks after the wedding online (All 1,200+ that she took) which was absolutely wonderful. We had many family members from out of state and I was able to give them the website and they were able to order photo's right online and everyone said how extremely reasonable the prices were that she offered for copies of prints. My husband and I are now in England while he is serving a 3 year duty with the US Navy, so it took a bit longer for us to recieve our photos, but let me tell you...the saying "some things are worth the wait" is so true!!! You could tell she spent a lot of time putting our album's together and she really caught onto those people in our lives that were most important to us and made sure they were apart of our album in a special way. As I have said, you are making the right decision by choosing Kim. I know you will be just as happy and thankful as we are. I highly recommend her and will continue to do so with all of my family and friends. Good Luck with your wedding plans and trust me, you are not making a mistake by choosing her!

Kim was great with our photography! She did our engagement portraits too, and before that I never thought I could take a good picture. She was always around during the wedding, capturing everything on film, but I barely knew because she wasn't intrusive at all. She took over 1000 pictures at our wedding and all of them are great!
Why chose to be a Wedding Photographer? Well, I think it is a simple answer... This day is not a photo shoot; it is an event, one of the most important events one will experience in their lifetime. Everyone looks amazing & due to all the overwhelming emotions there is less focus on the camera. When there is less focus on the camera, there are endless opportunities to capture all the moments of your day, as they unfold, documenting the story of your Wedding. Weddings are filled with love, excitement & honest emotions. Knowing I will have the opportunity to share my talent with you, producing something tangible for you to enjoy for years to come, makes the profession as a Wedding Photographer special in my eyes!
I look forward to hearing from you & would love to take part in capturing the memories of your day!
Plan to be 'Dress Ready' by the time the photographer arrives:
A few touchups of hair/makeup and a few photos of the dress & details are typically more then enough for memories & albums... This gives plenty of time to slip into your dress & admire your amazing self in the mirror for a bit... This also allows plenty of time to 'strike a pose' for portraits, some nice photos with Mom & Dad, as well as a great opportunity to take fun photos with your bridal party! All this & you can take a nice deep breathe, because you will be excited knowing you already have a bunch of great photos to choose from & you can be relaxed because you are not rushing last minute!
