From the moment we first had contact with Kate we knew she would be perfect photographer for our stay in Florida. We had researched her work online and after seeing her Instagram, we completely fell in love with her ability to capture the beauty in a moment and her natural style of photography.
On the day of our visit, she brought us to her home (which is connected to a beautiful dock, not to mention we met her beautiful family, husband and daughters!) so that she could snap some getting ready photos which turned out to be some of our favorite pictures from the day! Its hard to put in to words to how blown away we were by her work during our visit. Kate managed to capture incredible and special moments so perfectly, and so naturally, which is just what we were looking for!
Kate herself felt like we’d met up with an old friend, she has a great sense of humor and made us feel like we were stars, directing enough to get the perfect photo while not saying too much! She exudes a rare passion for her work, getting excited about different photo opportunities and running around looking for spots of light and new moments! We also had warm and enriching conversations with her about health, climate change, headaches, WiFi, technology, cancer etc. while walking to and from the beach – allowing us to have a very human and personal connection with her! The fact that the beach was a short walk from her home was also awesome!
If you are looking for a Fort Lauderdale photographer then look no further than Kate! She is absolutely brilliant from start to finish. Professional, efficient, friendly and, most importantly, took the most fabulous photographs of our Fort Lauderdale trip!
Our pre-shoot was hilarious and fun and for our Fort Lauderdale day she was almost invisible but captured the most precious moments. We could not have wished for a better photographer.
We lost count of all amazing photos she took. She was able to direct the photos without being intrusive or overbearing and throughout the day she blended in to the scene perfectly! She used every lighting opportunity she could find to capture a range of photos, and was constantly on the look out to use the scenery to the fullest. Her passion and enthusiasm to capture every moment shone all throughout, and she absolutely blew us away with her talent. We couldn’t have wished for anything more and we would recommend Kate 100 times over! Thank you Kate!
