SANTA BARBARA COURTHOUSE WEDDING
She was so fun to be around and with my family hard to wrangle, she did it with such ease and efficiency!! But the pictures...they brought tears to my eyes and we are getting so many compliments on all the photos. Could not be happier with the results and I would recommend anyone and everyone to use her skills on the biggest day of your life!!
DOS PUEBLOS RANCH WEDDING
Kaitie went the distance in every way to get us the shots we wanted, edited beautifully, and every one unique. She was professional, fun, and made us comfortable in an otherwise sometimes slightly awkward situation of being the subject of a photo shoot. The wedding photos turned out more beautiful that I could ever have imagined. I loved her style, I love her editing, and the feel to her photos. She was everywhere at once, but not noticed a bit. She was professional, listened to all of our desires, and delivered. 100% She was also extremely helpful and professional in the whole wedding planning process. Not a single complaint from this customer. We loved Kaitie!

Her working style is unobtrusive, she seamlessly inserts herself into your event to beautifully capture grand spaces, small details, and most importantly those special moments that are so often overlooked.
