Reviews & Testimonials
Being entrusted to photograph the biggest day of someone’s life is no short order. I am incredibly lucky and touched to have had the chance to work with so many wonderful couples who more importantly trusted me and were so happy with my work! It is entirely down to them that I get to continue to do a job that I love. Here are some of my favorite “love letters” that just make me swell with pride and love!
"Thank you so much Kathy! I absolutely love how they have come out. You’ve done such a fantastic job. Everyone that we’ve shown the pictures to so far have been beyond impressed with your photography.
Thank you so much again for helping our special day come true."
Love, Steve & Nikki McRae

"It was an absolute pleasure working with Kathy from the outset. She was so helpful and prompt to answer any questions we had. We wanted to have as many natural photos as possible and Kathy’s eye was exceptional. Kathy organized the perfect balance of natural and posed photos which was exactly what we had asked. We’re absolutely delighted with our photos and she captured some extremely special moments, that we would have otherwise missed, her attention to detail was second to none. We would highly recommend her!"
"First and foremost, we are delighted with the photos! They are stunning and captured everything so beautifully and you certainly have an eye for detail! It really makes looking back at our day very special.
Thank you for being such a patient and enthusiastic photographer, you were so easy and friendly to share the day with and were always obliging for all of our impromtu photo requests! Even our videographer thought you were great to work along side! It was really amazing looking through the photos which captured bits of the day we weren’t around for or missed as the day went so fast! Our families loved them too!"

"We can’t recommend Kathy highly enough. So professional, easy going and captured so many fantastic shots. Kathy really cared and was passionate about our day from the moment I first emailed her. She engaged with me straight away about what we wanted and the kind of wedding we were planning. We met in the run up and everything was so smooth and straightforward, we put together a timeline with her advice, and this was used as a template for the day which meant the day ran super smooth too. Even though the weather had other ideas, Kathy and Oksana didn’t flinch and remained professional and encouraged us throughout the whole day. We didn’t even notice them taking pictures, they weren’t on top of us and were capturing journalistic style photos although were never far away when we asked they would jump to any shot we particularly wanted. Within a few days we had a sneak peak of photos which only meant we were super excited about seeing the rest, which didn’t take that long at all. We had our online access to share with guests and then our wonderfully packaged USB within a few weeks. The only thing stalling me now is trying to pick between all the wonderful shots, for what I know will be a gorgeous very well presented album. Thank you so much Kathy you both were fantastic, you made our day so special and now we have the memories to last a life time."

“We got Kathy to be photographer at our wedding in September 2015. From the beginning, Kathy was very professional, yet easy-going, helpful and quick to respond to any queries we had, and we knew that we made the right call to pick her for the job. When we received the photographs, we were left absolutely speechless… the photographs and the slideshow Kathy put together are absolutely fabulous, and better than anything we expected. Every time we look at them, it’s like the wedding day again. Kathy captured all the great moments of the day without being obtrusive or our guests realising that they are being photographed. She captured all the emotions of the day, of which there were plenty. We would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for professional yet very relaxed wedding photographer. Thanks a million, again, Kathy!”
“Kathy I can’t begin to thank you enough for everything. From our first meeting you made myself and Brian feel so relaxed and reassured that we had made the right decision on having you document our day. We had so many personal requests as we wanted our wedding to be laid back and relaxed. We also did things a little differently to tradition with our Dublin City Centre wedding so you had the difficult task of following us around the busy crowded streets of Dublin at Friday lunchtime taking our photos. When we received our photo collection we where simply blown away! You had listened to everything we had asked for but not only that you captured our vision perfectly! From the moment you arrived to the chaos of the morning of us all getting ready you worked away quietly in the backround documenting every special moment. This was extra special for myself and Brian as we felt there was so much we had missed on the day.. You have a gifted eye for detail and furthermore were very in tune with the sentimental moments that others would simply overlook. You provided a very professional service, always keeping in touch, responding promptly to any queries and had our photos ready within the said time. I will and have already recommended you to anyone in the future looking for a photographer. Myself and Brian wish you every success in the future. Thanks again for everything”
“Kathy, we are so delighted with your work! You really captured our day so well and it was the perfect treat for Valentines! Pleasure working with you and would highly recommend! Thanks again!”
“We had Kathy as our photographer at our wedding in September. To say we are thrilled with our photos would be an understatement, they are just fabulous and are exactly what we asked for, relaxed, un-posed with lots of fun with the children. From our first meeting with Kathy we knew we were making the right choice. I would definitely highly recommend you have a look at some of her work. The hardest part will be choosing the photos for the album!”
“From the moment Kathy arrived she went to work unobtrusively creating beautiful and fun images including pictures of my Mum’s engagement and wedding rings, which meant a lot to me. We loved the mix of black and white, classy and elegant but also relaxed photos. It was great to see the pictures of our guests having fun and not even realizing they were being photographed. Kathy put us at our ease immediately and had some great ideas. We were both blown away by how beautiful her photos were. We will treasure these pictures for the rest of our days – they have created many happy memories for us. We would highly recommend Kathy for any photo occasion. Thank you Kathy!”
“Thank you so much Kathy for capturing every moment of our Wedding Day with such beautiful images! You were extremely professional and most of all made us feel at ease due to your relaxed manner & ability to take the most amazing pictures without being intrusive! You Even managed to snap some stunning pictures of our two young sons (a task I have yet to master as they don’t sit still for long enough 🙂 ) we would highly recommend you to all .Thanks so much for all your patience & co-operation! You exceeded all our expectations. We wish you the very best with your future :-)”
“Kathy captured the spirit of our wedding with style and class, providing us with a perfect record of our big day to look back on!”
