After all, this is the person who will be with you during some of your most intimate moments and the person who you are trusting to capture the fleeting but magical chaos of your special day. Take a deep breath and relax because you’re in the right place. I’ve been photographing weddings for almost ten years and have seen it all: from the traditional, to the quirky, from the backyard BBQ, to the international elopements, to the simple courthouse shindig on a Tuesday. What I’ve learned from all of my clients (now friends!) is that where it happens simply doesn’t matter. Yes, I’ll capture the details and all that you put into your special day but most importantly I’ll be there to capture the beauty and connection between you and your partner so you can preserve these precious memories for a lifetime.
Once you’re ready to get started, reach out so that we can set up a time to chat! We’ll meet up for coffee, wine, desserts, or brews - you choose! - to talk about your vision for the big day and to make sure that we’re the perfect match. Leading up to your big day you can expect …
Help with planning the perfect timeline that meets everyone’s needs (but above all else yours).
Vendor referrals if you need them (e.g. searching for the perfect cheesecake?! I know a gal!).
I’ll do some location scouting to find the perfect spot for epic photos.
On the day of, I’ll wear multiple hats. As your photographer, I’ll capture your special day and all that you’ve put into it. And as your third wheel? I’ll be by your side to support you and to help make your day run as smoothly as possible. I’ve been known to pin flowers properly to the groomsmen, help bustle a dress, and guide my couples on cutting the cake!
We’ll say goodbye at the end of the night and within a week you’ll get a first look at your wedding photos. This will be a small, curated set that encapsulates your wedding day. I’ll deliver your full gallery within 2 months of your wedding.
“Kati did out engagement and wedding photos and I cannot speak highly enough about our experience with her. We chose her because I saw her work from my brother's reception and I was just floored at how good the pictures were. She has such an amazing talent for capturing the raw joy of people in the moments and that's exactly what I wanted. She was so fun to work with and just made the wedding day go smoothly. She was super flexible but also brought some great ideas to the table to help capture our day perfectly. “
If I could give Kati more than five stars, I would in a heart beat. Kati is a phenomenal person, and an even better photographer. She came to photograph my destination wedding, traveled 12 hrs or so in a car to New Jersey (after just getting over an illness), and produced the most incredible pictures ever. Kati's got a knack for finding the right light and making you feel comfortable, even if you're not necessarily comfortable in front of the camera. Her goofy sense of humor and calming presence help create some of the most natural-- and the happiest-- looking photographs of people I've ever seen.
There's no doubt that she received the most compliments out of everything on the day of the wedding. Everyone loved her, and for good reason. She truly is incredible and makes a concerted effort to get every shot possible, from every angle possible. She also has some incredible photo ideas (for us, it was alllll about the sparklers, which created some beautiful shots!!) that are definitely worth the try. She was always there to offer advice on certain aspects (like the fact that I had a long walk down the aisle, so my now husband should face away from me until I was close enough that he could ACTUALLY see me lol) and to lend a helping hand. Seriously, such an amazing woman and a must-hire photographer no matter the occasion!
Kati did Clint and I's engagement photos and we had an absolute blast! Kati made the whole photoshoot so much fun. She was open to all ideas and also came up with the majority of our poses, which was nice. I cannot stop looking at our pictures that she posted on Facebook! Can’t wait to see the rest of them. Anyone that is looking into getting their pictures done, go with Kati Best Photography! Simply amazing. Thank you so much Kati for everything!!
"Kati did our engagement and wedding and I couldn't be more pleased! She is so creative and loves to use natural light which makes for unforgettable pictures. It poured down rain on our wedding day but she was on it! From the photo op in the rain with a bright red umbrella to the balcony pictures with the whole wedding party I couldn't begin to picture my favorites because they are all amazing ! Will definitely use Kati in the future ! Highly recommend!"
Kati is truly the Best! She traveled all the way around the world to Italy to photograph my wedding. She beautifully captured the entire experience. She made us feel relaxed and comfortable with her silly prompts that got us naturally laughing. and she was even able to get pictures of my husband smiling (and he hates smiling for pictures). At the end of the day, my husband told me that he was really happy that we were able to have Kati there to capture all the moments of our special day. I’m so grateful we had a wonderful photographer who provided us with beautiful photos to share with family and friends who were unable to attend our small ceremony. I can’t wait to use her again in the future for family photos!
Kati is absolutely phenomenal! She took our engagement and wedding photos this past year and we loved every minute of both sessions! She made us feel very comfortable, was extremely outgoing, personable and had us laughing throughout the entirety of the sessions. Kati is great at getting candid shots and using natural lighting and angles to her advantage to get wonderful photos. She truly goes above and beyond for her clients. We will definitely use Kati again and would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat! You will not be disappointed if you choose her as your photographer!!
“My husband and I were lucky enough to have our engagement and wedding pictures done by Kati and we can't speak highly enough of her work. Kati truly listened to our vision and created photos that far exceeded our expectations. Her use of natural light was breathtaking. She is such a genuinely kind and hilarious person that we felt completely at ease during our photo sessions and she definitely kept us smiling!
Kati captured every special moment of our wedding day and truly went far above and beyond the duty of a photographer! I had some Pinterest inspired ideas for pictures at the wedding and Kati was more than happy to be creative and take all of the pictures I wanted. She thought of so many creative and unique ideas for pictures and I absolutely love how every single one turned out. We will definitely be using Kati for any photos we have taken in the future! I HIGHLY recommend Kati to everyone I know!”
