Wonderful experience with Kathi! Highly recommend

We hired Kathi as our photographer for our wedding this past August. She was easy to communicate with from Day 1 and very responsive. She had lots of great feedback and insight about how to schedule our day so that nothing would feel rushed, which was very helpful.

On our wedding day she was a dream to work with - everything felt natural and Kathi had so many great ideas! She posted a sneak peek on her social media shortly after the wedding and then the turnaround time for the final photos was very reasonable (even quicker than we expected!). We loved going through our photos together as there were so many great shots and Kathi captured the day so beautifully and effortlessly, not missing any special details. We shared many with our friends and family who were also very impressed with how many excellent photos we received and the quality of Kathi's work! Kathi even submitted some of our photos to be featured in a recent edition of the Ottawa Wedding Magazine, which was really fun to be a part of and is another amazing keepsake from our special day.

Overall we can't say enough wonderful things about Kathi and her work - we would highly recommend her for wedding photos and we are so glad that we chose her to photograph our special day.

A true artist

Kathi was fantastic to work with for our wedding. She was responsive and supportive leading up to our event; honest and supportive of my suggestions and ideas, while providing rationale for why somethings might not work and willing to try others. Her years of experience in the fashion industry as well as a wedding photographer, combined with her natural artistic talent, resulted in a product that we were so very pleased with. Kathi was flexible with timing on our day and very unobtrusive throughout … the photos came out very natural and yet she captured all the highlights that I wanted, and more. With Kathi, you won’t get cookie-cutter photos and you will be guaranteed to be pleased with the results. It is well worth the investment for your memories.

5 Star Service - Kathi Robinson Wedding Photographer

Working with Kathi was incredible! She was extremely patient and understanding during our 3 year of delays and changing dates due to the pandemic. When our wedding finally took place, she captured the beauty of the moment with expertise, professionalism and care. We love our photos and would not hesitate to recommend Kathi!

There's nobody else we wanted!

You can see from the photos here, that she's talented. But what you can learn from someone who booked her: not only is she amazing and fun to be around (which is important considering how much time you'll spend together; only rivalled by your future spouse), she's also incredibly professional and a ninja. She captured moments that I didn't even know were happening. That's why I booked her; capturing a look or kiss between our parents or friends is just as important as photos of us. She created an album that not only brings me back to every moment of that day, but to every person who went.
Book her already!

Kathi was the best!

Kathi was great - she knew the shots that would work, the space, the lighting and how to manage our millions of kiddos so we'd get the best family pix. So grateful for her time and talent.

Beautiful Stunning Lifetime memories

Kathi, thank you for making the whole wedding prep and the wedding day much less stressful. From the beginning you and I connected because you were so easy to talk to, so easy going and so understanding. You were very flexible with rescheduling our engagement shoot. Thank you for doing such an awesome job on our engagement shoot and thank you for your guidance with everything. You are awesome.

And, David and Matthew were absolutely great at the wedding. The pictures are truly beautiful, you guys truly captured how perfect the day was and no words can ever be enough to express the joy that was felt that day but the pictures you have taken captured every bit of that joy. A picture is worth a thousands words they say then you guys have captured how in love my husband and I are, how happy I was when I first laid eyes on him down the aisle, how happy we were to finally get married, how passionate and committed we are with each other, how happy everyone else was for us! There aren’t enough words to describe the day but you guys were there to capture all the beautiful moments that were needed to be captured and the ones that we didn’t know we wanted to also be captured!

Initially, we were focussed on only having one photographer and not having preparation shots of either bride or groom and their wedding party. However, we were worried that some moments would be missed and are very grateful that Kathi arranged for us to have a second photographer and to take some pictures near the end of preparations. Usually the focus is only on the bride and bridesmaid but the groom and groomsmen felt just as special.

You are a gem and you made planning the engagement photoshoot and the wedding that much better. Our wedding day was perfect and I will forever cherish the memories of that day but to truly capture and have lifetime lasting memories, you guys were the perfect choice and I thank you for it. The pictures are stunning!

She knows what she’s doing and she does it well!

The stars aligned for us because Kathi had a cancellation for the exact date of our wedding (we planned our wedding in 6 months). Kathi was so great to work with, she’s such a gem, she listens to you and works with you, even gives you wedding advice! Her and David (the assistant photographer) did a fantastic job and we are SO impressed by the photos we received. I poorly scheduled the timing of our intimate couple photos so we were pressed for time but WOW Kathi made it work. She made us look stunning, I felt like a princess, and you can’t tell from the photos that we were time constrained. Her prices are very reasonable too when you look at the other photographers available. Also we passed on our engagement shoot so she removed some from our total cost.

Amazing experience

Kathi was an absolute gem to work with! Her laid back and easy personality made our experience relaxed and fun! Kathi is the highest professional. We never felt like she was trying to sell us something. She was honest about her experience and services and was able to direct us in choosing the most appropriate package for our needs. She was flexible with payment plans and made sure we could afford what we were getting! And to top it all off, our photos are incredible!
