  • I first met Kate when I was a bridesmaid in my best friend's wedding and after witnessing her organization and clear passion, I knew I needed her for my wedding! My husband and I are not the most comfortable in front of a camera, but Kate has a gift for making everyone feel relaxed and poses you in a way that feels natural, which we loved! We had a last minute venue change due to Covid-19 and Kate made sure she was in communication with us throughout the entire process. We cannot begin to thank her and Dom enough for their flexibility and commitment to helping make our day possible! We had our wedding near Smith Rock State Park and in the chaos of getting everything ready we were not able to plan out a spot for our first look; Kate and Dom took the time to go to the park that morning and found us the perfect spot - I cannot even begin to describe how beautiful the pictures turned out. Kate has a way of using the natural backdrop so beautifully and she will go the extra mile to get the ... Read more

  • Kate is an AMAZING photographer to work with. From the moment you meet her, her passion for photography is evident, and she will do anything to get the best shot. Both my husband and I are a bit camera shy, but you wouldn't know it by looking at our pictures. As soon as Kate got behind the camera, she immediately put us at ease and had us smiling and laughing the whole time. Kate truly has a gift for making people feel relaxed, even in poses that feel natural and turn out beautiful in the photos! Kate also got to our venue a half hour early to scout out the best places to take our pictures so that when we got there, there would be no wasted time and we could immediately start taking photos. She really knows how to capture natural beauty, and our pictures turned out more beautiful and stunning than I ever could have dreamed. If you choose Kate for your special day, or honestly, any type of photo session, you will not be disappointed! Thank you Kate for capturing our special day!

  • Kate was INCREDIBLE. She had the challenge of photographing in the snow, wind, rain, and hail. The pictures turned out so beautiful and made the rain look magical. She gathered all of my family members when I needed them and captured the dancing candids beautifully. I would recommend her to anyone!

  • Kate went above and beyond our expectations for our wedding day. We had not actually met her in person before the big day and when arrived, she was so organized and ready to get started. She socialized with the guests and really made everyone feel so comfortable while taking photos. My husband and I often feel awkward in posed photos and Kate made us feel extremely candid and natural. My whole family could not stop talking about how great our photographer was after the wedding day. Aside from how amazing her personality is, the photos turned out extraordinary. I highly recommend hiring Kate and hope to be able to work with her again in the future!

    Oh wow Sabina! I’m so glad you were so pleased, and I absolutely fell I love with your amazing family! The amount of love and joy that was shared between you all that day will stay with me forever! 💕💕

  • Kate was an absolute joy to work with! When my wife and I began planning our wedding, we shopped around and met with a few photographers, but we didn’t seem to find that spark we were looking for. That all changed, once we met Kate. From our first meeting, I could tell how passionate she was about her craft. She brought a sense of comfort in her confidence, and the ideas she presented were aligned to ours. Her energy, professionalism, and joy is why we instilled our trust in Kate, and we couldn’t be happier about that decision. Like most couples, we went through a few changes leading up to the big day, and Kate was always flexible with us in change. On the day of our wedding, Kate always seemed 10 steps ahead of us. She knew the schedule front to back, and kept everyone in line. We were really impressed with her ability to lead people with confidence, and have fun doing at the same time. She was always smiling, and there was never a dull moment. It’s clear she truly loves her... Read more

  • From the very first meeting, until the end of our wedding night, every detail was absolutely perfect. Dominic was always quick to respond, thoughtful with details, listened to our concerns, and went above and beyond on the wedding day to get the best shots. Worked with our big family, caputured the perfect moments, and made us laugh even when our faces hurt from smiling. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. Highly recommend.

  • Kate did our wedding photos and we could not recommend her more. She makes you feel very comfortable, is always professional, and takes amazing pictures. Multiple people commented on how it was like she wasn't even there but also everywhere at the same time. She can corrall family pics easily, she'll lie down in the grass if the angle is better, and she'll do it all with a smile. Hire Kate!

  • Kate Holt Photography was simply amazing! Kate photographed our engagement shoot and our wedding day. She was helpful, thoughtful, and her cheerful, kind self every step of the way. Not only did Kate take amazing photos, but she helped us to be less shy in front of the camera and captured many special moments. Our wedding party and family members repeatedly told us how friendly and organized Kate was, and we could not agree more! Even when a flower girl started melting down, Kate worked her magic to help her feel calm and comfortable getting her picture taken. We can’t thank Kate Holt Photography enough for capturing our memories of such special times!

  • When we were choosing a wedding photographer, our first question was, "How can we possibly get good portraits where we don't look like incredibly awkward and uncomfortable prom dates?" Kate was our savior; not only is she a phenomenal photographer, but she put us at ease, made us laugh, and captured so many beautiful and wonderfully candid shots throughout our event. She was cheerful, efficient, and absolutely diligent about everything we requested. She managed to get everything we wanted, even when timelines were abruptly changed and there were surprise performances. Her pictures perfectly captured the tone of different moments throughout the wedding, and the turnaround was fantastic. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

  • Kate and Dom did an incredible job capturing our wedding day! Our formal portraits, candid photos, and detail shots are beautiful and far exceeded any and all expectations that we had for them. Kate and Dom are both so kind, talented, and fun to work with. They went out of their way to travel for our Medford, Oregon wedding and put so much effort into personalizing the photos to our needs. I would absolutely recommend Kate Holt Photography for any engagement photos and/or wedding photography that you may need!

  • We are absolutely in awe of Kate's skill and how the pictures turned out. I got misty-eyed going through them and reliving everything. She was a pleasure to work with from our very first conversation to the end of our reception. She got every shot we asked for and had many creative ideas of her own. She also has a great sense of humor and made us feel very comfortable. We would highly recommend Kate to anyone looking for a photographer

  • Dominic (Kate's husband) is such a wonderful and caring person and a great photographer. He was the first photographer we interviewed, but after meeting him in person, we agreed that there was no point meeting anyone else. He has a great artistic vision that transpired in beautiful candid pictures, and he did an excellent job making us comfortable during the wedding photoshoot as well as listening to our suggestions. We are happy with the pictures and would highly recommend their family business to everyone!

    Thanks for such a nice review Yulia! I had so much fun working with you both! It was so obvious how impactful you both are on the lives around you in such a positive way because your guests spoke so highly of you! I am so happy you loved the photos. 😊

  • We had the pleasure of working with Dominic, Kate's husband. He was incredibly friendly and kind, and he made our day extra special. Dom communicated with us regularly leading up to the wedding. We were able to determine what kind of photos we were looking for, and Dom was able to make our dream a reality. Dom even showed up early to our venue in order to scope out potential photo spots. We love how the photos turned out, and the process could not have been more smooth on our wedding day - from organizing bridal parties/family/friends, it was all a breeze. The pictures are gorgeous, candid, and truly our own. I can't imagine having booked any other photographer! If you want a personalized experience, with a photographer who is willing to go the extra mile and takes your feedback seriously, look no further than Kate Holt Photography.
