Kate was the absolute BEST photographer (and vendor in general) to work with. Not only do her pictures speak for themselves (amazing), but she was SO communicative throughout the entire process. Unlike other vendors, I never had to wonder why she wasn't responsive, where we were in the process, what she was thinking as far as inspo, etc. Also, I had very specific goals in mind for my engagement and wedding photos and she nailed everything! She was also super flexible about photo schedule and making sure we got to enjoy as much of our cocktail hour as possible. On top of all of that, she was willing ear to vent and get support and friendship of during the whole day of the wedding. I CANNOT recommend her enough - my wedding guests are still talking about her - not just her pictures - but how amazing Kate herself was!
Kate is amazing! I got married a year ago yesterday and still look at our wedding pictures constantly! She was so helpful, kind, attentive and supportive from our very first conversation over the phone. I have always cherished pictures because they are printed memories that will last forever. I was anxious about my wedding photos because I've never been a "girly girl" and get extremely awkward when I know that my picture is being taken- never mind in a wedding dress! We arranged to do engagement photos which I was wanting just to get to know Kate and get more comfortable with the entire process. She helped me to relax, gave me some direction, and then (like magic) she managed to get photos that I loved! Between engagement day and wedding day Kate was so helpful with getting things figured out. She always got right back to me when I reached out and was always so patient with all of my questions and worries. Kate sent both they both drives (engagement photos and wedding photos) within just a few weeks of shooting them and the pictures were beautifully edited. She does an amazing job capturing the details, textures, beautiful lighting, and great "Kodak moments". I honestly could not be happier with our experience with Kate. I hope we can work with her again for future life events.
I cannot begin to explain how amazing Kate and Marissa were throughout our entire wedding process. They were kind, sweet, FUN, calm, and creative. There was not one wedding photo out of the 1400 options that we did not like. Not only was my family obsessed, my guests werecoming up to me during the wedding and telling me how wonderful the photographers were. Kate and Marissa made us feel so comfortable and really captured our love and personalities. I felt like I had known them since high school and actually want to hang out with them outside of "work"! After the wedding, Kate had picked a few top favorites to send us and had the entire wedding gallery available within 45 days of the wedding. I highly recommend Freebird Photography for any photography needs! THANK YOU Kate and Marissa!
Working with Kate was amazing from start to finish. As a photographer myself, I was prepared to be super finicky when looking for a wedding photographer, but after talking to Kate I felt completely at ease. Kate was the first photographer we contacted, and we instantly loved her easy-going attitude and professionalism after meeting with her over coffee. Throughout the planning process she answered messages in a prompt and friendly fashion, and I often felt like I was communicating with an old friend when her sweet emails would come through. Kate snapped a beautiful engagement session and even popped into our wedding rehearsal to get a feel for our venue - which was awesome and showed just how willing she is to go above and beyond for clients. When an unexpected downpour hit just before our outdoor "First Look" photos, Kate kept me calm, watched the weather radar like a hawk, and captured beautiful photos once the storm passed. She made our wedding day stress-free, and I had no doubts in trusting her artistic eye. Jeremy and I adore our wedding photos and will definitely work with Kate again for future memory-making moments.
